Re: PS3 DRM is not fair

I've been using Monoprice's $3 HDMI cables for 4 years without a problem, including 3D and 7.1 audio.

The only thing you are paying for with higher priced cables is the brand.

try resetting the tv back to factory settings.
do the same on the ps3 as well.

don't blame the cable... theres nothing for them to burn-out or break, its just a length of wires on a crimped connector. i am goin on 6 years with my $5+shipping monoprice.com hdmi cables without issue.

What are you doing to your HDMI cables to break them?!?

Cables usually don't just break on their own. They are passive devices. They don't "wear out" with use.

 

I have 5+ year old cheap HDMI cables that still work fine. I have one in a backpack I use to carry various devices, including my PS3, when I visit friend's houses. That HDMI cable has been plugged and unplugged, uncoiled and coiled many dozens of times, and it still works fine. I bought it so long ago I can't remeber what I paid, but all the HDMI cables I have bought have been < $10.

 

The only HDMI cable I have ever had to replace was one that my bunny chewed.

 

So I have to ask again, what are you doing with your HDMI cables? Jump rope? Tug of war with your dog? Seriously?

And often those brand name cables aren't as nice as the ones from monoprice.com! Monoprice rocks! Bought tons of stuff from them for myself, friends, family. I've also been happy with HDMI cables from itrimming.com (I like their thinner, lighter ones - Monoprice cables can be too fat and stiff for some installations).


Everyone thinks I'm psychotic (except my friends deep inside the earth).

Well i think the opposite if its cheap its bound to not work but in this case i kinda do see what you mean i keep reading that HDMI have no real differences from cheap and expensive only maybe in how long it is.

 

Im stuck using Component and my HDMI cables never did last that long my Component cable works fine and i owned it for 11 months and the HDMI lasted 3 months and the other one lasted 5 months


I spent $10 all together (after shipping) for 2 HTMI cables from dell.com back in 2008.  They both worked great back then, and both still work great today...
