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

[ Edited ]
63 replies 32166 views Edited Jun 22, 2014

I made a thread a few weeks ago about tv suggestions as I'm looking forward to Destiny. After getting the new tv, I need to get an HDMI cable for my PS3, any suggestions? apparently you can get better quality with a better cable (who would have guessed)

1080p 120 hz native tv if that has any bearing on anything. 

 

Input appreciated!

I use Monster Cables and get excellent picture quality.  They're kind of expensive, but worth it.

All HDMI cables are built to the same standard, there is no need to buy an expensive one.

It doesn't really matter too much since HDMI is a digital signal and no quality change between different ones. Its either perfect or nonexistant. With that said a High Speed HDMI will be needed for 1080p. Standard HDMI doesn't do 1080p resolution but High Speed HDMI cables are fairly common, so you should have no problem finding one. Cable quality doesn't do anything at all to Video quality, so there is no need to get an expensive HDMI that has a better cable since it doesn't mae a difference. A cheap $8 HDMI works just as well as a more expensive cable.

 

Long Story Short: There is no need to be picky, any old HDMI cable will do just fine.

You dont get better picture qualty out of those monster cables then you do out of a $4.00 cable. You wasted your money.

 

My Blu ray player, PS3, and PS4 all use these cables.

The only thing HDMI does is send a digital signal. As long as the cable is not broken then they are all virtually the same. Paying huge $$ for one b/c it gold plated or has this or  has that is just marketing hype and wasting your money.

Maybe so, but they were only 20 bucks, and around here there isn't too much of a selection on anything.

Any, just don't pay for some "name" brand (monster, comes to mind) as they are all the same. A $5 cable is just as good as a $50 cable. Like many have said it's the quality of your signal, not the cable.

I've owned Monster and Dynex, and to be blunt the Dynex (about $14 at Best Buy) was just as good as Monster.
