Our Product Research Team

At Crutchfield, you'll get detailed, accurate information that's hard to find elsewhere. That's because we have our own in-house Product Research team — they open the box, verify contents, check the owner's manual, and record dimensions, features and specs. We stay on top of new products and technologies to help people make informed choices.


Overview: This Monster GameLink cable is made for use with the Sony PlayStation3 game console. It has standard HDMI connectors on both ends. The cable allows you to deliver uncompressed high-definition video (720p, 1080i, and 1080p) and multi-channel audio for Dolby Digital and DTS Surround sound from your PS3 game console to your HDTV or home theater. Note: The PS3 console comes with composite stereo and stereo RCA audio plugs only.

Up to 1080p Graphics: The PS3 console is capable of up to 1080p video output, however, you cannot enjoy the high-definition video and multi-channel digital audio with the cables that come in the box. The Monster GameLink HDMI cable enables you to get the best video and audio the PS3 has to offer.

Technologies: This GameLink cable features the following Monster Cable technologies:

  • Duraflex Protective Jacket: provides greater durability and easier installation
  • 24k Gold Contacts: for maximum digital signal transfer and corrosion resistance
  • Nitrogen Gas-injected Dielectric Insulator: maximizes video signal strength for the best picture possible
  • High-purity Multi-stranded Copper Conductors: for lower loss, higher bandwidth, and greater cable flexibility

Lifetime Warranty: The cable is covered by the Monsters Live Forever limited lifetime warranty. The warranty lasts as long as the original owner owns the product.

I purchased a sony 52'' xbr5 bravia 1080p, with it the Monster Game Link cable for my ps3 recomended by the very smart sales representative that helped me. I can not belive the difference this product makes allowing pure, crisp sound and video quality at 1080p to my T.V. Playing games and watching movies has never been so much fun. I recomend it, 100% quality.

This cable is excellent. I have my PS3 hooked up to my Sony HDTV and it looks beautiful. This cable also feels very sturdy and not flimsy like some of the cheaper cables. If you need an HDMI cable, this one is worth the money.

I have a love hate relationship with Monster Cable on one hand I've never had a problem with any of the products they sell and they are of solid quality. That being said however my friend bought a HDMI cable and we set our PS3's side by side and couldnt tell a diffference on a 42 inch 1080 p Panasonic plasma TV. So is it worth the money? Thats up to you the buyer. I will say this though Crutchfield was once again a pleasent buying experience for me and I would give them a 5/5 just not sure about the cables.

Monster always delivers great quality. I use my PS3 mainly for Blu-Ray movies so the HDMI cable was a great addition. The cable is hooked up to my Samsung LCD 650 series that I also purchased from Crutchfield. Picture quality is amazing with the Monster HDMI.
