There's a difference, but it also depends on your tv. If it's a cheap tv, I wouldn't blow too much on an HDMI cable. Make sure it's at least gold plated at the ends, otherwise you lose some of the signal which I've seen with just fading across the screen. When using it on a blu ray player, the speed of the cable makes a difference too. I sell tv's and over the years have seen a difference, usually subtle though. Also cheap cables tend to wear out, so that's good advice from Brian.

digital. ones and zeroes are being sent. there's no loss of signal - either the data is transferred or it isn't, there's no middle ground. either a cable doesn't work at all or it works perfectly. gold doesnt connect 1's and 0's any better than anything else does.

the issues that might arise from cheap cables are the connectors coming apart and wires fraying due to that. until the cable physically breaks, it's as good as any other available cable.

well i guess mr fungi is correct, but fuckin delete him anyway

cables will be referred to by their performance characteristics. Official designations will be High Speed with Ethernet (incorporates all the specifications outlined in version 1.4), High Speed (equivalent to version 1.3, category 2), Standard Speed with Ethernet (equivalent to 1.3, category 1 as well as all version prior to 1.3 with the addition of the Ethernet channel). Standard Speed (equivalent to version 1.3, category 1 as well as all versions prior to 1.3 without an Ethernet channel). Please note, that a High Speed cables essentially delivers all the performance enhancements promised by 1.4 except Ethernet. So unless you have a devices that specifically needs Ethernet over HDMI capability, any HDMI 1.3, category 2 cable you purchased previously will not need to be replaced.

Every HDMI 1.4 cable is the same as every single other one. They're just updated versions of the HDMI interface. It's kinda like the difference between USB 1.0 and USB 2.0

This. And when you buy more they get even cheaper. No lie, like 3.23 or something is what I paid for mine. Brand new Samsung LCD tv, perfectly clear picture.

hes not wrong about performance differences - there are different versions of HDMI, just like there are of USB and such, as you stated. the rest is wrong.
