Default Question about Coax Monster cables?

I am going to purchase three brand new monster cable coax cables for my home setup. I would only like to know which coax Monster cable out of the two listed are going to be the best to choose from? I only like to use Monster cable so please let me know which one is better from the two listed. I think option 1 is better then option 2 because it provides more specs. I could be wrong so please advise...thank you!

DO NOT BUY MONSTER FOR DIGITAL CABLE.

It's not worth it. With digital cable you are better getting a decent cheap brand. Digital does not suffer from interference. You either get a full signal, or nothing at all. The only reason you get a decent brand it for good fittings and flexibility. Monster is not a good brand, it's a scam.

Ask anyone here, they will say do not buy Monster for digital.

With the amount of money he's wasted on computer hardware, we could have cured at least 1 type of cancer.

You know what... those cables are pretty cheap for a monster cable. I expected them to cost at least twice as much, is monster doing value cables now?
