    Before I purchased this HDMI cable for my Roku XDS I shopped around first at nearby Walmart and Best Buy, and read some reviews for this product. I’m a retired electrical engineer and do not believe on going overboard, spending more than adequate to get a good result on audio and video component. There are cables in the market that are priced too high to get the money out of those people who are willing to pay the price. Those people always believed that if the price is high, the product must be very good. For digital signal transmission, this HDMI cable is more than adequate. My video and audio were not degraded, and I did not notice any lost of clarity either on video or audio signal.

    Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What’s this?)
    I hooked this braided HDMI cable between my HDTV and my computer to stream video from the internet to my HDTV. The picture is clear and the sound quality is very good. I don’t see any difference while using this cable from computer to HDTV than I do when watching TV directly from my satellite box. The only problem I have with this cable is that it is very thick due to the braiding, which makes it hard to turn. I need to plug it into one side of my HDTV, loop it around the back of the TV and bring it out on the other side where I place my computer out of tripping range. The thickness of the cable makes it hard to loop around and it’s heavier than the other cables I have. This cable would probably be best for professional use where there might be heavy usage and plugging and unplugging of the cord. It will probably stand the test of time and constant movement easier than the regular smooth vinyl cables. But, for normal home use, the vinyl cables are easier to handle.

    For anyone who has not used an HDMI cable and is new to HDTV, this cable can be used to hook up your cable box, DVD or Blu Ray disc player, computer, Wii, sound system and whatever else you have that has an HDMI cable connector. You do not need to use separate audio cables as this beauty steams everything through it. It’s super simple to use – just plug it in to your HDTV and plug the other end into the other component and play. I suggest getting HDMI cables for each separate component so you don’t have to pull out the DVD cable to plug in your computer.

    HDMI 1.4/1.3x cable, get full support from Amazon, December 15, 2010

    WHO NEEDS IT?

    This wire should work well with anything that supports HDMI 1.3x but it’s built to comply with the higher HDMI 1.4 standard. You may consider this product if you have TWO devices that support HDMI 1.4. For these, the cable will carry through HD images and Ethernet data therefore eliminating the need for one dedicated Ethernet cable and one Ethernet port. Again, on a pair of connected HDMI 1.4 devices, it will eliminate the need of a dedicated audio cable if, let’s say, your TV needs to send sound back to your receiver – it may have a built-in Blu/DVD player or get its input through an USB port. You may also consider this cable if you currently need an extra HDMI 1.3 cable but you are planning to to replace your existing equipment with some HDMI 1.4 ready hardware in the near future.

    As far as HDMI 1.4 stands, this cable is ‘it’. It’s the complete implementation because it supports ALL HDMI 1.4 features.

    HOW GOOD IS IT?

    – Behaves as a HDMI 1.3x ‘high speed’ or ‘category 2’ cable.
    – As a ‘high speed’ HDMI 1.4 cable, it supports video resolutions of at least 1080p and can go as high as 4K.
    – The ‘data channel’ (Ethernet support) works only with HDMI 1.4 ready equipment.
    – The ‘audio return channel’ is another feature supported by HDMI 1.4 ready equipment only. It will allow for audio to be sent ‘back’ from, let’s say a TV to the HDMI 1.4 compliant receiver, therefore eliminating the need for a dedicated audio cable.
    – It should support all the HDMI 1.4 extra color palettes because those are implemented by the HDMI 1.4 compliant connected equipment.

    You may want to get this cable even if your equipment is not HDMI 1.4, it doesn’t hurt to get a wire that supports a higher standard and, with free shipping the price difference is not that great. And, keep in mind that Amazon stands behind this product so returns should be easy.

    END OF REVIEW

    ______________________________________________________

    What follows is the byproduct of me attempting to clarify ‘HDMI 1.4’ for myself and understanding this specific product’s features. I thought I’d share.

    WHAT’S IN A NAME? (understanding this cable’s features)

    – HDMI 1.4 is a new HDMI standard adopted in 2009, backward compatible with HDMI 1.3. This cable should work with your existing equipment.
    – HIGH SPEED indicates that this cable supports resolutions of 1080p or higher and 3D video (unlike the HDMI 1.4 STANDARD cables which, believe it or not, are limited to 720p/1080i – why? nobody knows).
    – ETHERNET means that this cable supports a full-duplex 100 Mb/sec Ethernet connection – if you have 2 HDMI 1.4 ready devices and they both need an network connection, this cable will carry through the Ethernet datastream to the second device, therefore saving you the need for one extra Ethernet cable.
    – Audio Return Channel is a feature that would save you the need of a dedicated audio cable between 2 HDMI 1.4 compliant devices.
    – This cable should support the full set of 3D features found in the new TVs.

    THE HDMI 1.4x DIFFERENCE

    HDMI 1.4 allows for the following new features:

    – Ethernet Channel – allows for the 2 connected devices to communicate with each other and share one network connection.
    – Audio Return Channel – eliminates the need of a second cable if you want to send audio from your TV back to your receiver.
    – 3D – It’s supported by HDMI 1.3x but HDMI 1.4a specifically supports all the currently agreed-upon industry standards
    – 4K resolution – good to have it but there is nothing on today’s market that would take advantage of this
    – Expanded support for new color spaces – by supporting sYCC601, AdobeRGB, and AdobeYCC601 it better aligns your display with the color spaces supported by digital cameras.
    – Type D connector – the ‘Micro’ connector is to be used by small, portable devices with supported resolutions of up to 1080p.

    The HDMI Consortium defines 4 broad types of HDMI 1.4 cables:

    * Standard HDMI Cable
    * High Speed HDMI Cable
    * Standard HDMI Cable with Ethernet
    * High Speed HDMI Cable with Ethernet

    Of the above, only the ‘High Speed HDMI Cable with Ethernet’ (this one) makes sense and it’s likely to emerge as the common HDMI 1.4 cable.

    Standard cables are limited to lower-resolution displays up to (approx. 720p or 1080i). High Speed cables support higher-resolution display (e.g. 1080p). They can deliver all video content currently defined for the HDMI standard (i.e. more than two 1080p/60 video streams, including 3D). HDMI cables with Ethernet are capable of sending 100/mbps over the HDMI Ethernet Channel. Since it is not likely that many HDMI 1.4 ‘standard’ cables will be made or sold, I suspect that the crippled ‘standard’ type exists only to allow for calling the cables that support…
