Extron's longest super thin HDMI cable that is passive is only available up to 2m in length, for what that's worth.Ive heard of redmere for thin cables with the chip to push the data. Now I seen a sony slim cable. Its really thin. Im not sure if it has a chip in it. Is it ppssible for a thin cable without the chip to push all the data correctly?
Pure marketing b.s. Plain and simple. Any HDMI cable that comes with a certificate of compliance for the length you buy will work just fine. Presently, 25' is the maximum length that can be certified for passive high speed hdmi. Thicker gauge wire can be used just fine for longer lengths, or if your runs are under 25', you can probably get away with a smaller gauge wire if you need the flexibility and less strain on the connector end. If you need an active cable, Redmere works great.The best HDMI cable, that I heard its Monster 1000HD Ultimate High-Speed HDMI Cable.
But I use Cmple 28 AWG HDMI
I have been using mediabridge ultra from amazon. I tried amazon basics cables (3 pack) and two were bad. I started experiencing pink and purple color casts (BAD) on my TV and thought it was the set, but replacing the cables fixed it.Most of the cheap ones are very good. I have a bunch of eBay ones that work perfect.
