Re: HDMI cables

said by IowaCowboy:

What does high speed with Ethernet mean? And I would like to know (opinions please) if the Best Buy Dynex cable ($12.99) is just as good as the Monster cable ($79.99, got it on clearance at radio shack for $29.99 a few years ago).

HEC allows for a 100 Mbit/s Ethernet connection between the two HDMI connected devices so they can share an Internet connection. I'd say the "better" cable is the one supporting the latest HDMI spec (presuming the newest if there's any difference at all). For a "basic" connection, though, I'd say each is equally good.
