if anyone pays $166 for a 6' HDMI cable, let me know. I've got some beachfront property in Kansas.

And they're still making money on these things. HDMI cables are literally the biggest ripoff in the world. The margins on them at Radio Shack or Best Buy are like 300%.

Network patch cables..

Any cable in a retail store is a huge markup item.

That's where I get my cables. Shipping is usually next day, since they have a warehouse in Rocklin. I think I paid about $3-4 for an HDMI cable there.

Harbor Freight has them for $8 also. I have used them when I needed a cable and refused to pay $30 for one at Walmart. I usually order them from monoprice though.

This one laughs at your measly price.

Diesel must have written the review.

A few years ago I started a thread asking about HDMI cables and everyone on here told me to order the cheapest ones I could find because "they are all the same". I ordered from Amazon and the cables worked fine for about 2 weeks then I started having issues with picture quality then no picture.

I went to Wal Mart and spent $20 on some name brand cables that felt much better put together. They have worked fine for years now.

I hope you all have better luck than I did.

Yeah, you have to use oxygen free copper, with 24k gold connectors, and anti-intermodulated braid for the cable to work to it's full potential.
