The Truth About HDMI Cables

This holiday season, many people will be giving or getting new televisions or DVD players. When shopping, one thing that you may find is that salespeople everywhere will attempt to sell you expensive cables to connect the devices. While it’s true that you will most likely need an HDMI cable or two, there are a few things to know, so you don’t get totally ripped off.

Waste of MoneyHDMI transmits a high quality digital signal that contains both your audio and video information. It is capable of transmitting true HD at a higher resolution than analog cables. This means that you will no longer need RCA or VGB cables, and in theory, you should be able to connect all your devices with one cable.

Here’s whats important to know about digital signal. Digital signal does not degrade, so it doesn’t matter which one you buy.  Salespeople at the big box chains will try to convince you otherwise. They are either lying or misinformed.  They will offer gold plated and gas infused cables that can range in the hundreds of dollar range. You will get NOTHING more from buying a more expensive cable. Don’t believe it? Read about it Here, Here and Here.
