Preached just right. It's weird to see how people get ripped off without even knowing.

Damn good info. I bought 2 6ft HDMI cables from Amazon for $10.
Went into Walmart and saw a 6 ft HDMI cable for $56.99 only difference between it and my generic cable was the packaging which touted the "gold plated" garbage.

Megamart rip mi off, I bought a 6ft HDMI cable from them for 500 in october and when I went back in dec the same cable cost 1000, but i guess its better than watts new that wanted to sell me the cable for 1200+tax SMH, and when i was in the states I could not find any $10 cables in the retail stores just the expensive $50 cables

while i understand this, the expensive cables might simply be stronger and last longer
for example car amp rca wires, the cheap black and red ones are actually some of the best, but will STILL get damaged
meanwhile directed audio or so cost more, but withstand much more pulling up and moving around and wear and tear...
not that id ever spend 250us on a hdmi cable
and honestly, not sorry for ANYONE who does, lol lol lol

meritline.com usually has the 2 pack of 6ft HDMI for like $2 every other week at least. I must have about 10 of the packs at home. Cant beat $1 a cable. Sometimes when I am in best buy or walmart and see people taking up the $30 cables I'm tempted to enlighten them but irs hard for people to grasp the concept of not being a sucker sometimes.
