So you got yourself a PS3, a HD-DVD or Blu Ray player, you got the High Def TV and your ready to go. Then you find out that to make it all work smoothly and to get the most out of your experience, you need a HDMI cable. Even to get some nice upscaling for that Upconvert DVD player (which you might of got cause either you was being cheap, waiting the format battle out, or just to replace one that just died) you might as brought as well, you need the cable.
If you like me, you headed out to your favorite store be it Best Buy, Circuit City, J&R, or even Radio Shack. You get to the store only to find out the raping has begun. The cheapest cable, even for 3 or 4 feet, even at a Radio Shack is like $50 bucks! You have all this equipment and you would think a simply cable would cost this much. And what is worse is the price goes up from there. Monster cables (which gets pushed heavy at Best Buy) can go from $50 bucks all the way up to some $130 or more.
Now while we hear at G Style don’t get too much in depth with what every new technology, consider this a ***Public Service Announcement ***. When it comes to digital cables like HDMI, as long as the cable is working you will get the best possible signal you can get. So if your in some store and the salesperson tells you need to spend $130 dollars to this type of HDMI cable to use with the PS3, he is lying. Any HDMI will do the job, speed is a factor. I repeat as long as the cable works, you will get your full experience, when it comes to brands like Monster, your basically paying for their marketing! This is where Monoprice.com comes in.
A 4 foot cable from say Best Buy at the low end of their scale might cost you $67.99. However at Monoprice, a 10 foot cable wouldn’t even cost you more than $10 bucks before shipping and handling. The actual price of the cable in question is $8.48. And the truth is, both these cables will do the SAME EXACT THING. So spend 67.99 or more, or spend under $10 and don’t forget this was a 10 foot cable, most won’t need this, so imagine a 6 foot, or a 3 foot. Yea head over to www.monoprice.com now and save yourself the trouble. Plus MonoPrice deals with all kinds of cables as well!
