Re: What's a good HDMI cable to use? PS4 /PS3

The need to buy expensive cables is an illusion.. You'll get the same performance out of a $10 cable as you would a $60 dollar cable.. What you fell for is purely marketing ploys designed to get you to buy their product over another..

Best thing to do is to 1) Stop playing on an old gen system and upgrade, 2) use gold plated hdmi, 3) get surround sound, 4) get high end optical cables, 5) tv is fine, 6) if still thinking about your console, don't second guess, buy a ps4

Gold plated HDMI cables do not do anything. Just a gimic and a waste of money.

This is how they get you. All HDMI cables are the same quality. You can get them for $5 on monoprice

There is no need to spend  any more then a few dollars on HDMI cable unless you are running  the hdmi cable through a wall or a  long run then when you want get a AWG26 or better.

digital picture is either there or not. this isn't the old rca cables where better cables give better picture. data is digital. it cant be at a higher quality. so any cable will give you the best picture.

Becacuse its been known for A LONG time that all HDMI cables are THE SAME. The $30 Gold plated Monster cable is the same as the monoprice $3.00 cable. The gold plating does nothing at all

Not throw away cables. No need to get all defensive just  b/c you flushed a fist load of money down the toilet
