Cold deal. Monster delivers a higher quality product for a fraction of the cost more.

In for one, thanks OP.

something about having a picture of a devious thief at the top of a form I am putting a credit card info into that makes me feel uneasy.

Did anyone read that little story on the bottom of the order page, weird and wacky

Good to have extras. Too bad I paid almost $10 for one a week ago when I needed one.

It's not dumb so much as unaware. When you see someone at Best Buy, try to explain it to them in simple terms, that the cable they're about to buy uses a digital connection which is either fully working or not, so they don't get anything more by buying a "premium" one, and that Monoprice is just as good for ~$4 shipped. They'll love you for telling them :).

I once told this woman and her ten-year-old son at Target that instead of buying Train's full album for "Hey, Soul Sister", they could pick it up on LimeWire for free. She was happy, and thanked me :D.

I'm strongly contemplating picking one of these up. I don't have any HDMI devices (!!!), but I want to have a stash of cables and adapters so that I'll be ready for any situation.

I am sorry, but the irony is killing me. I would never recommend to anybody downloading music from LimeWire. Chances are if they hadn't known about LimeWire before then they don't know that they are at more risk to downloading virus infected files which probably would cost them more money in the long run rather than just buying the album.

Back on topic, ordered 3 because I want to see if there's a noticeable difference in PQ between 1.4 and 1.3c :p

You're right. In retrospect, it would have been smarter to tell her to pick it up on iTunes or another music service. I hope their computer is alright :eek:

About to pick up 1-3, thanks a bunch OP. How do you buy more than 1, do you have to make multiple accounts?

LOL @ the $20 retail price. Well, I guess Best Buy still charges rip off prices for HDMI cables.

Just got one too... always good to have another HDMI cable. It's gold plated so I'll give it to my fiancee for our anniversary.
