Has anybody bought any HDMI cables from Amazon.com? I was about to place an order from Monoprice and saw the shipping charges were pretty high for standard 3-5 business days so I thought I'd check out Amazon since I am a Prime member with free shipping. Their cables seem ridiculously cheap to me and wonder if the quality is as good as Monoprice ... my usual go-to store for cables.

Rick, I don't think I've bought HDMIs from Amazon yet, but I HAVE started buying other cables from them for the same reasons. Today, in fact, I got in some analog audio cables with right-angle adapters that Monoprice didn't carry. Sometimes, despite their cheap price, by time you add shipping and those of us on the right coast wait 5-6 days for shipping, it just makes sense to go with Amazon if you're a Prime member.

I bought a 6' HDMI cable for about $9, a DVI to mini-DVI cable for about $6, an optical cable in preparation for an Apple Airport Express for $4 something, and a couple of other adapters/mini-jack cables for exactly $0.01 each. No extra shipping charges on any of them. All from Amazon, each separate orders, usually added onto a blu-ray or book order. No problems with any of them, FWIW.

I've bought about ten Mediabridge Ultra Series HDMI cables from Amazon over the past couple of years and they've been great.

Hey Oscar, good to see you .... if you ever make it this way be sure to stop in.

I put my order in with Amazon, the money I saved in shipping I used towards Bonnie Rait's pre-order CD.

Worked out great!

Amazon sells everything now man..!

I actually buy a decent amount of power tools from them.. They have name brand tools for much less than they are sold locally.. you can also get factory refurbished tools as well for even less. So far i have had good luck with pretty much everything that i have bought from amazon.

I get a delivery from Amazon almost every day. I've never bought HDMI, but did get 5 DVI cables for the computer at work. They look cheap, but function perfectly well.

That's my problem with Amazon. It's way too tempting to add that one extra item every time I order. Stupid wishlist, always knowing what I want!!!!


With great power comes Awesome irresponsibility.

Hey Rick, we need to get together for a few cold ones sometime soon.

Take care.
