Which hdmi to dvi cable?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I'm wondering if monster cables really make a difference. I bought a ps3 today with nexxtech hdmi cable and adapter to dvi, now I'm buying the cable hdmi-dvi for like $18 dollars with shipping. Will monster cables have a noticeable difference over regular cables with my acer al223w. What about optical belkyn compared to monster?

I don't think this building has ground because I have an apc surge arrest and the red light is always on, What difference will a monster power and filtering thing make overall with my pc and sound system?

I thought I had forgotten how to use google but looks like I never did and from what I found monster cables are just a high priced product.

From what I hear, you won't really see a difference between a Monster cable and the $5 cables.

monster cables deserve to be put outta business for their crap. The $2-5 cables are exactly the same.

I second monoprice. I bought one from there and I think it didn't cost over $12 shipped. Works great too.
