Channel Master HDMI cable

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

It's a cable!!!

Cons: heavy and inflexable

Dont' buy an expensive one!

Written By PD, Texas on Saturday, September 21, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I have seen the expensive cables in use, and I just don't believe in spending the money on them. If there is a difference in the picture or the sound, most people would most certainly not be able to tell. This cable works great for the price.

Pros: Works Great

Dont waste your money on Monster cable this works great!!!!!!!!

Pros: Price

Great Value and Performance

Written By ET, Central Coast California on Saturday, February 11, 2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

My experience has been that HDMI cables are like the 3 Bears. Some are too stiff (and stick out almost straight as an arrow behind audio-video cabinets), some are too pliable and don't connect well, and some are just right. This cable fits the last category. I just couldn't believe the quality of this cable at such a reasonable price. I highly recommend this brand over others for the quality and value.

Pros: Quality and price.

Cons: Absolutely none.

Execellent cables for the price. You do not have to buy expensive cables. They all do the same however, you do have to have the right cables for what you want to do with your equipment. Crutchfields adviser was very helpful.

Works fine except I can't get the audio return channel to work in spite of the sound system
and the TV advertising that it should work.

Bought this cable to go from my cable HD box to my Sony Bravia TV. There is no better
option. Provides an awesome picture not to mention getting rid of all the component
cables behind the TV. Did I mention fast free shipping from Crutchfield!

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This cable worked for only 3 days before it started displaying a black bar towards the bottom of the tv. I checked the connection and it was good. So the cable turned out to be bad. Crutchfield refunded me my money which is why I keep buying from them; good customer service.

Works great

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I use this cable to go between my TV and Receiver. Works like a charm. Haven't noticed any
flicker, fuzz, delay, or any other problem a cable could cause. Would buy again.
