Enjoy detailed high-definition images and surround sound with your home theater gear. Monster Cable's 500HD Series HDMI cables transfer crystal-clear video and audio signals between compatible components and TVs. Monster recommends these cables for use with 720p and 1080i video signals. The "Simplay HD" badge means these cables are certified by an independent testing group, Simplay Labs, to deliver outstanding HD performance.

Monster Standard Speed 500HD HDMI Cable

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The product so far seems to be functioning properly. I know there is a better cable for this type of use. I am wondering what the difference is between the model I bought and the top of the line Monster Cable. (HDMI).
