    I know what you mean. They also have such a good selection of cable lengths that it's fairly easy to get "custom" cables that fit exactly where you want them without excess coils getting in the way.

    I know a lot of people have bragged on Monoprice. I have ordered other things from them, so I can vouch for them as a company and for other computer accessories... I just haven't bought their cables, but if I needed any I surely would consider it.

    I have been using MediaBridge HDMI cables that I ordered through Amazon, and have had no problems with those and they are usually fairly inexpensive too.

    Monoprice is great for many things including cables. I wouldn't buy shorter hdmi cables from anyone else unless I couldn't wait for the shipping. That being said at longer lengths (such as what you are looking at with 35 feet) you may want to consider something a bit better. Odds are they won't be an issue but if it would be hard to replace (such as in a wall or ceiling) it may be better to go with a better cable from the start. By no means should you ever feel the need to pay Monster prices though.

    Monoprice offers multiple grades of HDMI cables, including RedMere active cables. I really doubt you could find a different vendor offering comparable cables (of whatever quality you want) for cheaper.

    Los Gatos,...
    I've had to return one defective product (iPhone charge cord - connector fell apart). There was no issue and I got a replacement within a few days.

    I vote for monoprice

    Is there any difference at all with HDMI cables and 3D HDMI cables or no?

    I have a 3D TV. I saw they have 3D HDMI cables or unless they are trying to get more money out of people saying its 3D but its the same thing anyway.

    Thanks,
    Chris

    Shameless plug for a local operation! Great for me as if I'm in town for work, they are about 15 minutes away. Awesome on hand selection!

    With these prices I keep standard sizes and type (Ethernet Cat6, HDMI, etc) in "stock" at home for those projects that spring up.

    Any HDMI cable listed as "High Speed" will work fine.
