On-Q Legrand Active Copper HDMI Cable
"High Speed with Ethernet" HDMI cable (15 meters/49.2 feet)
Our take on the On-Q Legrand Active Copper HDMI Cable by Crutchfield's Steve Kindig
Active cables give HDMI signals extra oomph
If you need a High Speed HDMI cable you can absolutely depend on, active cables like On-Q Legrand's Active Copper can be a cost-effective alternative to fiber optic cables for longer runs. Available in either 10-meter or 15-meter lengths, these cables support the maximum 18 Gbps bandwidth provided by the HDMI 2.0 standard, and they're rated for in-wall use.
Active Copper cables employ a signal processing chip at the "TV" end of the cable. Tested to deliver 18Gbps bandwidth, with no loss of signal or interruption, the Active Copper HDMI cables support the latest advances in video technology, including 4K Ultra HD and HDR content.
Active Copper cables have color-coded connector ends to reduce installation error (there's only one correct way to hook them up). These cables use thick 24-gauge conductors, which result in a fairly stiff cable that may be difficult to maneuver in tight spaces.

Why did you buy this?
streaming across the small bedroom with HDMI and ready to use [ Stephen Aug 08, 2018 ]
At this price range, you can hardly find a similar cable which promises to deliver it's intended performance throughout it's entire length. [ Juan Jun 20, 2018 ]
I have tried more than 4 HDMI cords and I'm hoping that this one will actually work with my finicky sony blu-ray 4k player. I will be using it to run the Dolby Atmos audio from the player to the reciever and it will be hidden in the drop ceiling. [ Sabrina May 27, 2018 ]
