Yeah they're that prices cause people will pay. I was in a store and a guy was looking at an HDMI cable I said you know the dollar store has those he said yeah but they're not gold platted. I just said ok. I could have went on but if people want to over spend not much you can do.
they work fine as I got a $2 3 feet one to hook up my in-laws roku I got them for x-mas to get HD netflix they was using the wii before and video looked god awful. that gold shit is a good selling point anyone really think they're going to put gold with good vulie on a fucking cable you plug into your TV.
