funny you said that nekro, cause that's exactly what i told them. they are used to analog where signal quality matters. i told them with digital, it's either there or it isn't.
There actually can be a difference between Monster cables and ones from Monoprice, but only in very, very specific circumstances (long distances and wall mounting). For 99.99% of cases, the cables from Monoprice will do just fine. One of my relatives bought an HDTV and got a free Blu-ray player with it. He was duped into buying a Monster HDMI cable. I told him to take it back, went online with him to Monoprice, and he got the same length of cable for $8 shipped.
