1.5m Braided HDMI Cable with free shipping $19 @ Oznetics

2 January 2009

one of the biggest scams at the moment is the outrageously extortionate prices that many stores (especially big stores like Harvey Norman and JB Hifi) are selling HDMI cables for...

the truth is that for HDMI cable runs of less than 10 metres, the outrageously expensive cables (Monster is the classic overpriced brand) perform NO BETTER than most cheap cables...

you can get cheaper cables than these, but i've bought a couple of these recently and they are definitely good quality braided cables with decent connectors -- excellent for the price, especially considering they offer free standard postage...

they sell other lengths of course, HDMI to DVI and optical cables, and various other home theatre bits and pieces...

    Although it is better to buy locally I bought mine from Dealextreme - when the dollar was higher http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.12836 1.8m excellent shielded quality 1080p thruput capable ~ easily the equal of those ripoff Monster brand cables approx SAU14.50 each delivered but if you can buy 3 at once then approx $AU12.50 delivered - took about 10 days to arrive

    yeah .. i used these guys last week. Got some 1.5m HDMI and 2.5m optical cables. The build quality are very good for the price and the service is exceptional. $14 delivered .. cant go wrong.

    Checked out the site - no 1.5m advertised. Shortest length I could find was 2.5 @ $21 delivered.

    Sold out maybe iamabenmaniac... fishmonkey may be able to throw some light on it.

    i would say they are just out of stock... given their reputation, i'm sure they have a high turnover of those cables... i would email them to find out when their next shipment is if you want the 1.5m...
