A few weeks back, I was set a pair of Solid Cordz 6 ft High Speed HDMI Cable with Ethernet (28 AWG). The HDMI cables are gold plated which give them better signal transfer, and they are double shielded to protect against EMI/RFI. They also support Dolby® TrueHD and DTS-HD Master AudioTM standards and are compatible with Xbox & PS3.
Now, the Blu-ray cables and all that kind of stuff falls more into my husband’s realm of expertise. We’ve been using some High Speed HDMI cables there were slightly expensive at the time we bought them. They work…I can’t exactly tell you how well aside that the picture comes through good. To test these cables, I used one cable for our entertainment system and gave the other to my parents to use to hook up their Blu-ray player.
With our player, I did notice an improvement with the picture & sound quality. The video is definitely crisper than what it was before. With my parents, there was major improvement. They only recently got an HD TV, but haven’t upgraded their satellite box for HD & were using an old DVD player. We gave them our old Blu-ray player that we haven’t used since switching to our current entertainment setup. The player is still in great condition but is a few years old. They plugged it in and were blow away by the picture…especially since up until then they hadn’t been using their TV to its fullest. The HDMI cable had definably cleaned it up a lot and it looks and sounds a lot better than it did when we used last.
Overall, I really like the cables. They work as advertised. The two-pack is $35 on Amazon. I have no idea how much these normally cost, but I do know that at the time we got our old cables, they were well of $20 each…so for two that’s a great deal. Plus, Father’s Day is coming up soon and they would make a great gift.
