I'd get the cheaper one, they will function the same.

EDIT: As Jedi Said above, monoprice is the bomb for cables, I always look there when I need any type of cable.

Buy the cheapest thing you can find. They all either work at 100% or 0%. There is no middle ground.

Just so you know the reason. HDMI is a digital signal. The quality of the cable doesn't matter as long as the signal gets there. Unless you are going over 75 ft you have nothing to worry about.

The cheaper cable at newegg with 2 days free shipping would cost you less than monoprice because of shipping.
