What that's got to be a typo. I just jumped on that junk, 3 dollars with shipping. Thanks
Gasp, even cheaper $0.01 cables. It's only natural to ask what's wrong with them?
I like how the used ones cost 229x more than the new, 1 cent HDMI cables.
If I buy 20 cables it costs me a dollar but S&H is $59. FAIL
sell them for $8 and make $100 profit ..
stand outside best buy during xmas shopping.. lmao.. make $300 profit.
("yo dawg, you looking to cop one of these hdmi jolnks")
yes i would.
In all seriousness though, thats a good business mind right there. If you can merchant stuff to the less inclined, why not?
well it must be a typo, i would be tempted to ship to the UK with international shipping. BUT im not sure i would actually get it for that price. When someone receives maybe they can let us know
Doggies in the warehouse must have chewed them all up. Good find
It's just a massive overstock of a cheap cable.. Honestly with Digital it doesn't make "as" much of a difference, but you can generally pickup cables slightly higher grade than these for around $5-$10 same length and a lot of times free shipping.
Cool find though.
Well, I ordered one so we'll see. They are making their profit off the shipping and handling.
its digital, technically it shouldnt make any difference atall
The statement is about as accurate as saying SATA or USB cables are digital and the quality doesnt matter. It does. The "fail point" due to interference or cable length is much shorter. There is plenty of error-correction going on in digital equipment. It will kick in earlier, or just not work, with cheaper cables.
If you have a short length single cable with NO possibility of interference, I agree, just use cheap.
But if you want to have a long cable run, with power lines and other digital lines in close proximity (or knotted! LOL) around the cable, then get higher quality shielded cables.
Eh I've bought HDMI cables off of ebay for $1 before that was 1.3b.
Nice find. Just ordered a few.
It still makes a good difference. Especially in longer runs.
Don't worry it's a very common mistake to think Digital data isn't susceptible to distortion and interference.
The single largest factor to come into play is Jitter and multi conductor timing.
Not enough for a grand majority to really care or sometimes even notice.
You don't really know unless you have heard / seen it better before is the issue.
jitter cant be caused by a cable ... but by the device using the cable..
1- buy cheap-ass cables from amazon
2- sell them at 500x their real value to friends and co-workers
Sounds about right
Its a quality cable as far as I can tell. But of course the shipping is kind of expensive if you check it out in the check out process. Its just like ebay auctions that charge $45 shipping on an item thats $0.01 and its a $40 "value" new product.
Yes, I should have included that.
I'm gonna order a few here in a bit
Edit: Nevermind. I'm an idiot I had a book in my cart which jacked the price up
I ordered 10 and it came to ~$2.50 each for shipping. Still... 10 HDMI cables for the price of one ain't too shabby.
Ima gonna HDMI the shit outta somethin'!
yeah in longer runs of course... how far are you putting your blueray from your tv anyways?... hell even optical needs a repeater in longer runs... but a standard length HDMI cable that you pick up for a few £'s versus a £100 version... bah... screw me if im paying that I have no issues running blueray on my sammy 1080p or my 1080p sony camcorder both on HDMI
Guys.. uh why are you asking how far are you putting the devices? The cable is 6ft.. hehehe if you stack two devices on top of each other.. err the cable is still 6ft.. hehehe
