    HDMI Cables

    I just purchased a new Blu-ray player. I need an HDMI cable to hook it up to my months old 42" HDTV. I have been perusing HDMI Cable, Home Theater Accessories, HDMI Products, Cables, Adapters, Video/Audio Switch, Networking, USB, Firewire, Printer Toner, and more!.

    I simply dont know which cord I need to hook this bad boy up. Can any of you techies help me out?

    All my HDMI components use these. If you need longer you can find a 2 meter as well.

    The below cables are cheap and work very well and I'm a huge geek.

    I just bought a Samsung 1080p upconverting DVD player to connect to my Samsung HDTV. I purchased a Monster HDMI cable to connect it and it works great. Price for the HDMI(5ft.) cable was $39 @ Wal-Mart.

    HDMI is HDMI. It doesn't matter what you pay for a cable, they are all the same. Its digital so you do not lose quality in the cable, unless you have excessive lengths. And if you pay more that 10$ for one, you got taken to the cleaners. www.monoprice.com

    DO NOT BUY HDMI at Best Buy...Wally World...or any local store...

    As several folks have said...you will get ripped...

    There are a number of very good on-line sources...some have already been given...a quick Google search will find you others...

    I paid $11 (with shipping) for a long one for my system...would have been almost $40 at Best Buy...

    Buyer Beware...
