Cheapest price I found around the internet, and Crutchfield is a trusted company. Cable works great, very clean, crisp picture!

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I used to have constant interruptions of video and audio with a cheaper HDMI cable. Never
thought it would be the cable. Cheap cables can't handle the throughput in MBPS that HD
video and 7.1 HD sound need. These monster cables can. Since I've had them installed, no
more interruptions, EVER.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I needed a cable to run through and under the wall, through crawl space and back into a cabinet. This was 19 foot, just right for my purposes and has worked wonderfully. Best quality cable available, at a fair price, and the length is not easy to find. I connected through a wall plate also provided through Crutchfields.

I purchased these cables because I'm a fan of Monster's quality. I know there are much cheaper cables out there, but I didn't want to sacrifice. I purchased one for my Samsung BDP 2500 and one for my HD cable box. Easy to install and I used the Crutchfield lables. Fit snug and offer peace of mind!

Great Cable and Performance!!!

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

When you purchase an LCD or Plasma screen HD TV you need to plan on several hundred dollars extra for the cables. I've seen them without monster cables and trust me, the difference is like night and day. If you have just your HD Box and the Television you are talking one cable...add to that a DVD or DVR player, and surround sound and you are talking close to $400. But if you are going to invest in a good HD television it is plain stupid not to invest in the right cables for them. Without them the color and the sound will be off quite a bit. I tried with my first system. Crutchfield is alot cheaper than local stores for purchasing them, and you may even get a discount from them on the purchase price. I buy everything from Crutchfield, but I check out the prices locally before I purchase. They always are cheaper and the tech back up is worth the price you pay.

Exceptional performance!!

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The DIRECTV service technician originally installed their HDMI connection when I recently upgraded my service and said "...these are the bottom of the line cables and I would get a better one as soon as you can." Well, I took his advice and went straight to Crutchfield for advice on which one was right for me. There is much more improvement in the "Standard" broadcast shows than the "HD" broadcasts with my new "Monster" connection but there is also quite a bit of improvement there also.

Best product and guaranty on the market! Thank you Crutchfield, for once again satisfying my needs!
