This is definitely a decent price for a 'need it right now' cable.

Man I am getting sick of these hostile attitudes on RFD towards peoples comments. The guy did mention correct spec in his comment and he is 100% correct. As long as your cable is the correct spec to carry the digital bandwidth then everything else is marketing.

There is no need to attack him and show such aggressive attitude towards one person comment.
You are overreacting, sure he could have been less harsh but putting that aside the statement he was replying to IS wrong. There is quality associated with manufacturing of every single product in the world. Specially with cables some are cheaply made and advertised as good specs, some are good quality and good specs and some hugely overpriced with misleading marketing regardless of the quality.

I could justify the statement about every HDMI cable within specs being the same if this was a thread about a $40 Monster cable, but come on, this is a good quality $7.48 cable. There is a ton of people who has reported problems with Amazon Basics so their quality is in doubt and its only a couple bucks cheaper...

Lots of misinformation on this thread, nothing has changed in the past few years, HDMI cables (18Gbps) remains as equal as they were few years ago, the "premium" certification is more of a cash grab than anything else.

"High Speed Certification" covers 4K just fine (just as it did since day one), without a laminated "premium sticker".

The "premium high speed certified cable" is a just another "high speed certified cable" that has also passed an EMI test. If people think EMI testing has anything to do with 4k@60hz or 4:4:4 then some reading is overdue ;) Also cables are not individually certified under that program so there is ZERO protection against bad runs.

Still, a good price, without all the overhype ;)

OP, have you tested the cables with the mentioned equipment?
Unfortunately I left on my business trip without getting this opportunity. Will do Thursday night.

This is wrong.

High speed HDMI cable did not change but the minimum guaranteed data bandwidth change in the last 3 years.

An high speed HDMI cable need to be guarantee to support at least 10.2 Gbps data transfer. This is perfect for 4k HDR from TV box or most 4k BluRay player because they're usually are 4:2:0 or 4:2:2 or are 4:4:4 at 23hz. This is why most people use their old cable for their 4k TV and everything work fine.

For the Premium HDMI cable, the minimum guaranteed data transfer is 18 Gbps. This is necessary for full HDMI 2.0 signal output.

Does it mean that non premium cable won't be able to deliver 18 Gbps? No. But having a premium cable increase the chance the cable work for 4:4:4 4k 60 Hz signal. Of course all cable are not individually tested (is there really a single human being on planet Earth that thought that?), but it really help preventing black screen, syncing and many problem people using 4:4:4 60hz signal.

The HDMI 2.0 specification was released in 2013, and revised into HDMI 2.0a in 2015 and then HDMI 2.0b in 2016. This specification increased the maximum bandwidth of HDMI cables from 10.2Gbps to 18Gbps.
