Default Re: Question about Coax Monster cables?

Sad thing is, Radio Shack still almost certainly made a profit on that sale.
That Monster DVI cable you purchased was not a 24-pin dual-link DVI cabe. Was it the all black one? I couldn't use it on my Dell Ultrasharp 30" LCD. I went with a Belkin Pure AV Silver Series 24-pin dual link DVI cable which works great! Belkin is also cheaper then Monster.
