[Home Depot] [HOT] GE 6ft 4k@60hz HDR 18Gbps Premium HDMI Cable $7.48

Local Home Depot in Winnipeg so YMMV.

Will test one on a PS4 Pro/Xbox1X/Nvidia Shield to see if they can actually hold up to those specs without any display issues. If so then these are a great deal.

**update** --> Ok the results are in, and they're good! Equipment tested on:

Xbox One X via Yamaha RX-V1083 into Sony 65X930e running a full 4K HDR10 image source

(**important to note that the tests initially failed when utilizing the front HDMI input on my model receiver even though according to the specs all ports are supposed to be the same. Might be handy info for anyone with an RX-V1083 that might be searching the internet for this issue):

HDMI cables are just cables. As long as they are the correct spec, they won't affect picture quality. Not really a deal in that regard.

There couldn't be a more false statement when it comes to 4:4:4 HDCP2.2 signals. There's a reason these are marketed as 18Gbps. Sorry but you don't know what you are talking about.

After I upgraded my dual monitor setup to a single 43" TCL TV with HDR, I found out that my regular HDMI cables didn't have enough bandwidth to work at 4K HDR. I had to get the Premium certified ones to get HDR to enable.

That being said, I bought the Monoprice Certifed Premium 6' back in February for $9.99 but the price is higher now. The HD one seems like a good price.

Can you share a better deal for 4k certified cables?

I have lots of different cables from Prime Cables and Monoprice and only certified 4k cables actually work in 4k on my PS4 Pro. Other will blink or straight up not display anything.
Like you, I was skeptical at first since I'd always used cheaper cables, but for 4k, quality does matter because you are pushing the limits of the specs.

Yeah that's where the "correct spec" he mentioned comes in, I would assume.

Even that being said almost every cable out there will do 18Gbps until you start getting into super long lengths.

@camelopardalis popped out of a time capsules from 2007, when all HDMIs were treated the same, and cables were cables.

Nowadays it's quite different, if this does 4K @ 4:4:4: @ 60Hz, it's good. If it does that and HDR, it's great.

Decent, OP.

I'm sorry, I'm just going off of basically every article I've ever read comparing cheap vs expensive hdmi cables. Perhaps you could link to more information?
For example, do Amazon basics cables work fine with HDCP2.2 and 4:4:4?

Exactly, I implore you (and others for that matter) to post your better deals on a similar spec cable that actually works without flaws on devices (such as the ones I mentioned above). The closest I came up with in the past were these (https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B01LGD ... UTF8&psc=1) --> $20 bucks for a 6 footer and the best cable I found up to this point.

Even the similarly marketed cable at Walmart for $12 bucks had to be returned because they caused several issues and the display would turn off when using it with my X1X on a Sony 65X930e. 90% of the people reading are likely just watching their Shaw/Bell boxes and streaming Netflix and have no idea about the higher demands of more powerful devices and tv's.

Amazon basics are 8$ or 10$ for a 2-pack. Thats what i use for my ps4 pro. 4k HDR works perfectly fine.

Hurhur, most people are just using their xboxes and have no idea of the higher demands of much more powerful devices like using my gaming PC in the family room. I had to buy a $600 HDMI cable or it kept turning off, there was just too much power.

Check out the Monoprice Premium Certified HDMI cables on Amazon (or on Monoprice if you can wait for their shipping...) - they are rated the same. Not as good of a deal as the ones in your OP though if the specs are truly as indicated.

On Amazon:
3ft: $7.99
6ft: $15.77
10ft: 11.99
Congratulations!
Today is YOUR day.
You're off to great places!
You're off and away!

I suggest RFD to have option to start sub-thread where users can discuss who has bigger “HDMI cable”. Grinning Face With Smiling EyesGrinning Face With Smiling Eyes

Anyone spotted them in Richmond Hill/Markham ?
