Monster Cable M Series® M850HD

Written By Michael H, Las Cruces NM on Thursday, September 20, 2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I bought the Monster Cable M Series® M850HD HDMI for the connection between by Denon AVR-1913 and my 65" Plasma. The built quality of this HDMI cable is typical Monster Cable, flawless. Alot of people complain that Monster Cable products are overpriced. And if you're foolish enough to pay full retail, you may complain about the price. But that's your fault. You can easily shop on line and find a terrific price, like I did at Crutchfield, for this product and be highly satisfied with both the product and the price.

Pros: Quality of the Product, unbeatable.

Cons: The price, if you pay full retail. These cables are available for 'alot' less if you shop around at the online stores, like Crutchfields, and get an amazing cable at a great price.

Amazing

Monster Cable M850 12 foot HDMI Cable

Written By Andrew F, New York City on Saturday, June 23, 2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The Monster Cable M850 HDMI cable is an excellent choice to connect your T.V. and Blue Ray Player. The picture is great and the audio comes in quite clear. The 12 foot length is enough for connecting to my AVR receiver. The only thing these cables don'y have is 2K by 4K color but I'm not sure what that is and I don't think it really makes a difference. As with my Polk Audio CSi3 center channel speaker that I ordered from Crutchfield the delivery was free and the shipment came in just 2 days. The price was a big savings from Monster Cable and if your not sure about placing the order go ahead as you won't be dissatisfied.

Pros: Great color resolution as well as very clear sound.

Cons: Really none to mention.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I look at this same model at Best Buy & Moster web site and BOY; the price was too high for me. The cable works great if you have a 1080p or 3D TV. I could tell a huge diffence from my old cheap cable. This was a great product for 39.99 and the shipping was right on time.

Pros: Great Price for older model

Cons: none

Great deal

Written By DS, New York, NY on Saturday, May 19, 2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

With the $30 price break, this makes for a very good deal for a 15.8Gbps 12 foot cable from a solid manufacturer. Bought four of them to connect to a Samsung UN65D8000. Saw a definite picture improvement over the cheaper temporary cables I had been using.

Pros: Speed, Monster name, Price

Cons: fairly stiff
