Gah, there's a comment which hurts my head:

 Quote:
I also work at a Best Buy and I can completely agree with this article. There are a few things to consider when jumping up in price however: Longer lengths require more bandwidth and better signal, (no need for Monster’s $300 36 ft cable though) if put in wall, cables must be UL rated so as not to be a fire hazard (many amazon cables ar at $3) needs to be up to date (again most amazon cables are already 1.3a for $3, but you can easily find a 1.2 for 50 cents) and some also have CAT 6 wiring in them (obviously fetching a slight premium, can be had from bluejeanscable.com for $2 a foot, or less) So not ALL HDMI are equal, but the signal sure is.

Yep, it sounds like he works at BB. Regurgitating things he's heard other people say, but not quite understanding them so he gets the details wrong. One of the main reasons I can't go to retail stores. It's bad enough when someone's "wrong on the Internet", but wrong in real life...

I try not to read comments in any case because of the idiot factor.

In wall? So they're plenum cables, huh?

I didn't go to the web sight but this quote from your sample caught my eye. "Longer lengths require more bandwidth"
Demonstrating a complete lack of knowledge of what the word bandwidth actually means.
