There is no logical reason a simple hdmi cable should cost $60, $70, $100 or more. Monster Rip-off.


"Logical" being the operative word. :)

Let's be careful here; Engadget has found differences over certain lengths and with resolutions supported by the spec but not in devices yet.

Bottom line, for a 6' length, there's likely no difference, but if I was sealing up a 50' in-wall cable between say an equipment rack and ceiling-mounted projector and wanted to future-proof it, I'd go Monster as the price of the cable is negligible compared to perhaps having to run a new one.
