I went ahead and ordered it after reading the specs and a few customer reviews. I can't see why it wouldn't work. And form what I gathered, the 28 AWG is a thinner cable.
I'm a little pissed...I totally forgot to look for optical audio cables so not only did I not get one on this order, but I have to pay shipping all over again, too.
But I suppose $10 for an HDMI shipped and another $10 for an optical shipped is a hell of a lot better than $40 for a Monster 800 HDMI with my roommate's best buy discount.
