OMG look at the difference in prices for the HDMI's!!! That is so lame. Does the brand name make much of a difference in the quality?

>Nana & Dawnie: Hopefully these deals come in handy for someone.

>Iris: Not really. They have done blind tests with professional and recreational audiophiles and they can not tell the difference. There is NOTHING that would cause a jump in price like that. They could even be made of Gold, which sometimes they are! Well, gold plated anyway but still, some of the generics also have that same gold plating at the much cheaper price.

I couldn't agree more with you. Cables can be darn expensive. RadioShack has a 12 foot HDMI for around 120 bucks! Thats just nuts. Although the RadioShack brand ones are much cheaper. But you can find cheaper ones online.

>Farhan: Yes I can't understand why they would mark up the prices so much. Even with that fancy finger slicing packaging it shouldn't cost that much. Sometimes I see people leaving the stores with that stuff in hand and I desperately want to tell them. I also know how exciting it is to walk out of a store with a new purchase and I don't want to ruin their high so I stay quiet. I can also imagine an irate individual telling me I'm nosy. :D
