    I was expecting the cable to be about 3/16″ diameter, like th3 3-footer I got at Best Buy, but this thing is about 7/16″ in diameter. You could almost tow a car with it ! It is precisely as advertised, and if I’d looked closely enough at the specs, I’d have realized how heavy it would be. It works great, though! Excellent value. Buy two, and keep on in your car for emergencies! (Just kidding, but barely.)

    I bought this product back in 30 April, 2017 for mirroring my laptop screen onto my tv mainly to watch anime and movies. Overall the HDMI cable is very sturdy and the output picture & sound quality is excellent. So far of usage I haven’t faced any issues personally, everything works smooth till now. If you are looking for a well built and durable HDMI cable that would last for a long duration of time along with providing top notch output.. then this is definitely the right choice to go with 🙂

    Had my old cable go bad and quickly ordered this replacement. It arrived soon and found my picture quality improved over what I had before. Feels a little bit “cheap”, but value is excellent.

    Necesitaba un cable hdmi y no me quería gastar mucho dinero. Fui a varias tiendas como mediamarkt, worten… En todas estaban carisimos, hasta que decidí buscar aquí. Necesitaba un cable para mi ps4 y he de decir que no tenía muchas esperanzas, ya que es un cable relativamente barato, pero he de decir que cumple a la perfección y es un producto totalmente solvente. Los materiales no son lo mejor del mundo, pero es un plástico de alta calidad, a años luz de otros hdmi del chino que he tenido.

    Si te ha servido esta valoración, me ayudaría mucho que me la marcaseis como útil en el botón de abajo. Muchas gracias.

    This cable is nice and thick. Well made and durable. I had an older thinner 25 foot cable that was having connection issues recently. The cable wasn’t damaged but it was still having connection issues between my PC and TV. I’d turn it off of PC then back to PC and the TV wouldn’t find the signal. So I bought this cable and that has never happened again. A great thick cable for long distances. I highly recommend it however it is thick so keep in mind that it is harder to hide.

    Acquistato a febbraio 2018 è vissuto dignitosamente fino a luglio 2018. Morto in giovane età. Eseguita degna sepoltura come si sovviene.

  7. Ryanne Riegling

    I’m not really knowledgeable about cables and what makes one better than another. What I noticed about this one is that it is much thicker than the other HDMI cables I own. I think that’s to allow it to send signals at a longer distance. At any rate, I’m using this to connect my PS5 to a ceiling mounted projector and it fit the bill just great. It’s actually about 4-5 too long, but better to too long than too short, am I right? LOL

    OK, here’s my cojnfiguration: I have two 32″ monitors – one arranged in the usual ‘Landscape’ orientation, the other in ‘Portrait’ orientation. They are next to each other. I often need to look at PDFs of text pages from old magazines etc. where the origination is vertical. When you bring up the PDF on a landscape display you looks a large percentage of the page. So I slide it over to the vertical display. In some circumstances I may need to use an alternate PC for some reason. I can mix/match source and displays via various switches. I only need short cables to connect all of this, otherwise I have a mess of intertwined cables. These were perfect.

    HDMI2.0(リビジョンなし)= Rec.2020対応(色域の規格、これだけだとHDRとは言えない)
    HDMI2.0a = PQ(Perceptual Quantization)方式対応(HDR PQ方式に対応)
    HDMI2.0b = HLG(Hybrid Log Gamma)方式対応(HDR PQ/HLG方式に対応)





    「HDR」を何故か規格名だと思ってる人が沢山居ますが、HDRとは「単語」です。規格名じゃありません。「すんげぇ表現力」っていう意味なので、規格も何もあったものではなく(笑)「UHD」「Dolby Vision」「HDR10」なら正しく規格名です。

    強いて言えば上述の「PQ方式」「HLG方式」に対応した国際規格ならあります。「ITU-R BT.2100」ですね。ITU-R BT.2100は、PQ方式及びHLG方式についての「ガンマカーブ規定」を定めたものであり、多分皆が思ってるものとは違いますけどね。※ちなみにITU-R BT.2100はWeb上に仕様書(英語)が上がってます。興味のある人は見てみてください。言ってる意味わかりますから。

    Please do not waste your hard earned money on overpriced HDMI cables in the name of picture or sound improvements. I currently am using these AmazonBasics High-Speed HDMI cables to connect our Yamaha v379 AV receiver to other HDMI enabled devices that link back to our 4K Samsung Smart TV and these have performed flawlessly.

    HDMI cables come in four types: Standard-speed –> Standard-speed with Ethernet –> High-speed –> High-speed with Ethernet. Since High-speed cables are so cheap (e.g these AmazonBasics cables), there really isn’t any point of getting Standard-speed anymore. On the other hand, as most HDMI devices today can’t receive Ethernet over HDMI, High-speed HDMI cables are really all you need.

    ** Some numbers **

    Standard-speed HDMI cables are rated up to 1080i (“i” stands for interlaced). In order for a HDMI cable to have a “High-speed” moniker, it must be capable of showing resolutions up to 4K –> 3840 x 2160 at 30fps (or 4,096 x 2160 at 24fps). And as the highest resolution any 4K TV currently on the market can produce is 3840 x 2160 at 30fps, even if you found a $100 cable at your local BestBuy that claims it can transmit much more than that, it doesn’t matter as you are limited by your source (i.e your cable box, Xbox, PS4 e.t.c) and your TV’s hardware capabilities.

    Also HDMI cables can either produce an image/sound or nothing at all. There is NO in between. Therefore, a HDMI cable will either work or won’t work (it may show a flashing image but this means it’s a bad cable). But a more expensive HDMI cable will NOT show darker blacks and sharper colors than a less expensive HDMI cable. You either get 100% of the signal or no signal at all. Now if you intend on running your HDMI cable for more than 50ft, then you might want to invest in a HDMI cable that has “active” chips that help maintain the signal quality over a longer distance (but does NOT make the image/sound any better than the source).

    ** What about HDMI 1.4 or 2.0 or HDCP 2.2? **

    This is another common misconception due to manufacturer marketing. HDMI 1.4, 2.0 and HDCP 2.2 are all hardware changes that do NOT require a cable change! Although there is a difference between them (you can google that yourself), there is no such thing as a HDMI 1.4 or 2.0 or HDCP 2.2 cable! The version numbers refer to the devices that the HDMI cable connects into & NOT the cable itself. The cable simply is a pipeline linking the two. Hence, if you do happen to own a TV and another device that both have HDMI 2.0 ports, any AmazonBasics High-speed rated cable will work perfectly fine with it.

    ** Conclusion **

    At this price point, there is very little reason to spend more money on more expensive HDMI cables over these AmazonBasics High-speed cables. If you have a 3D, 4K, HDCP 2.2 or HDMI-ARC compatible device, these High-speed cables will work perfectly fine for you.

    I have bought this twice and they both work great. I tried one of those lanyard or material kind of HDMI for my monitor and it was all speckles in the monitor it. So I went back to my history to find this one and so come back to buy this one and it is as good as my first one I bought years ago.

    仕事柄、10台ほどのTVとDVDプレーヤーなどをつないでいますが、1,段々と接触が悪くなってくる  2.全く見れなくなる  この2つの症状のどちらかが出て、違うケーブルに交換すると治ります。

    I dont know if this is just me but I run into issues with 4k 4.2.2 on the Apple TV, where it flickers.
    Turning it to 4.2.0 works just as well, I cant tell the color difference, and I was about to return these until I saw that there was a fix. So yeah, if your tv is flickering at 4.2.2 just turn it to 4.2.0 and it should work beautifully.
