What HDMI would you recommend for PS3?

We also need Component for our HDTV in our living room. Ben has PS3 in his own bedroom with TV that has HDMI.

My brother is the one who bought PS3 two days ago. He also bought component for $20 that includes adapter for Wii, XBOX360, PS3, and PS2. I think this is crap.

I may be wrong anyway because does it really make any difference from that to this? $70 Psyclone component cable (http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage.jsp?skuId=7985709&st=playstation+3&lp=40&type=product&cp=1&id=1155065410910)?

what HDMI? you mean cable wise? HDMI is digital, just get the cheapest cable, digital cable either gets there or it doesn't.

no point in waisting more money on some special magical cables.

Wow. I was only asking which HDMI and whether $20 component cable would make a difference with $70 ones.

For HDMI cables, there is negligible difference between the cheap and expensive ones. The signal is digital and as such does not degrade based upon cable.

For component cables, there is a difference as it is a analog cable and the signal will degrade over distance. When dealing with distances of around 8', there is very limited benefit going with the expensive cables vs the cheap ones. Quality of cable may make a difference if the distance is over 8'.

i have that $20 cable. works fine for me.

dont spend money unnecessarily on cables. unless youre wiring over very long distances, you wont be able to tell the difference between any of them.

As others has said here, with HDMI being digital, it wont make a difference what cable you go with.

Component on the other hand. I have a cheap ass all in one for my ps2/ps3. It's very bad as i get ghosting with that cable. Dunno if it's bad shielding or something. So i switched to a hdmi>dvi cable (a rather cheap one too) and its far superior.

Get a Monster cable. I went froma cheap Crest cable to Monster and I'm now getting 1080p over the 720p I was getting before. Also 20 chicks want to sleep with me now, as soon as I left the store with the $300 15cm HDMI lead they all came up to me and took their clothes off.
