Re: [Rant] A/V cables The dollar store over here also sells HDMI cheap cables. I bought some 25 feets CAT-5E cables. They do seem really low quality and weak but they have been working fine on a 1GB connection since almost 2 years.
There are also 2 electronic/junk store that sells many kind of cables at a good price. (the kind of stores that remind me what Radioshack was when I was younger... except they are much bigger)
I still prefer Monoprice... they're not always cheaper but the quality is better.
