Got the latest email from Newegg and wanted to pass on this info. 30% off ALL Rosewill A/V cables using PROMO CODE: EMCJHKJ89

I picked myself up (2) HDMI 10.2 Gbps Pellucid HD Series Rosewill cables for a whopping $6.99.. LOL.

This is pretty much the same as Monoprice's normal price for 6ft HDMI cables, but the free shipping at Newegg makes these a better deal.....but I'd still go with Monoprice due to the lifetime warranty. It looks like the warranty on the Rosewill cables is only 1 year.

In CA with tax & shipping included, for 2 6ft cables:
Monoprice: $12.44
Newegg: $10.70

So I'd basically be paying $1.74 for the lifetime warranty.

The problemm with monoprices lifetime warranty is even if your cable breaks it is cheaper to buy a new one than to ship it back to them. This is why they have a lifetime warranty because they know no one will ship it back. In fact I have had things that were even brand new I had a problem with but it still cost more than the item to ship it back so I just threw it in the trash.

Not to knock monoprice I love them but that is more because it is so cheap and good that I do not need to bother with a warranty on most items.

Good point, that didn't occur to me.

I loved Monoprice at one point but then Amazon started stocking a lot of the same items and with Prime the shipping is free. Monoprice shipping is generally more than purchasing from Amazon with sales tax and free shipping so Amazon generally wins when I can source the item from both stores. Monoprice shipping charges can be downright horrendous at times depending on the item.
