> Provides up to 5 Gbps of bandwidth

Don't buy. This is a terrible cable.

HDMI 2.1 is 48Gbps, and HDMI 2.0 is 18 Gbps. This sounds like some unsold old HDMI 1.2 cable that does nothing beside 1080p.

It might still work at higher but why take the risk?

HDMI 1.4 cable not even saying b so no ARC support and 5gbps support is not good for 4k at all.

At 50ft, you're at the absolute limit of what a straight HDMI cable could reliably transmit without a repeater if it has good shielding and is made properly. I'd opt for something like HDMI over CAT5e/6 for a more stable connection at longer distances.

This optical HDMI cable does 4K HDR @ 24hz & 60hz from my personal experience. Using from X6500 to HT3550. Playing 4K Remux on Shield with Primecables Mamba HDMI to the receiver.

If you have some 720p or 1080p projector then OPs cable might work ok.

The point of "HDMI Cable with Ethernet" is pointless.

Seriously, unless you have devices that can pick up the ethernet signal from within the HDMI cable (where most of the devices on the market don't have this ability); you have a "HDMI Cable with Ethernet" for no ethernet usage.

Yup, none of my devices do. This is a very niche item, the folks who would gladly buy this at the MSRP of $80 (Staples website) can rejoice, but for the rest of us I don't see much use case for it
