Gotta say I wish I was one of you guys. I've encountered probably $500 of Monoprice cables and gear and I would never go out of my way to declare it all "high quality". In my experience, its average and usually works.nonono.
They are the king of high quality and extremely fair priced cables out of any e-tailer I've ever known.
I've ordered numerous types of cables from them (monitor, SATA, ethernet, toslink, even PS2 component cables!) and they ooze quality. Have a lot of other products as well (IDE to SATA converter which I needed for my old Seagate drive), but I don't think they're as high quality as their cables, which is hard to live up to because their cables blow that 'monster cable' brand out of the water.
-The projector and TV wall mounts are not high quality. I've used the full spectrum of mounts, the Monoprice mounts are junk but generally work.
-Low quality screws and bolts in every mount, including bolts that were missing threads
-Loose fitting optical cables
-Poor flexibility of HDMI and RCA cables
-HDMI "speckles" using a long Monoprice HDMI cable to get to a ceiling mount projector. With multiple Monoprice cables. Replaced with a different manufacturer and the long cable run worked fine for years.
-DVI cable that didn't work with my DisplayPort -> DVI adapter in an Eyefinity configuration. Replaced with a APC branded cable for $12 on Amazon and it works perfectly
-Speaker wires that were short by many feet if you actually measured it
-Finicky as shit IR repeaters / extenders
