Cheap HDMI Cables in 2010: Actually, pretty easy to buy.

I’ve used a few different types of HDMI cables in the past – really expensive Monster cables, very nicely made cables from AV-Express, which I recommend if you want to order a mount from them and save on shipping, and cheap ebay crappy cables that work great, but don’t have the best build quality, and might not support the new HDMI 1.4 standard. Well, today I decided to find the best cheap cables on Amazon, and take advantage of my Amazon Prime membership, which brought me to RiteAV HDMI Cables. For comparison, here’s the type of review distribution you generally find with these cables:

Oh, that looks pretty good!  Wait.. what are those 1 to 3 star reviews..

Well, crap.  I don’t want that to happen to my TV!  I could just risk it and buy 3 just in case…  Or …

Now, admittedly, some of the longer cables don’t have any reviews whatsoever, and it’s only 7 reviews so far, but that’s not too bad.  I’m risking it and buying a 15-foot version of the HDMI 1.4 cable.
