Default HDMI 1.3a cables on Amazon for $9.99

Usually $30 it's on sale for $10.

It's not a Monster cable, but seems like a decent quality cable for the price.

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001BM5XB2

I ordered 3 to replace my cheap HDMI cable for the PS3 and one as a gift for my friend who has an X-Box 360 and is using RCA and one for my other player.

Yep, HDMI cables are really bloody cheap to make. I found out that one of the hardware stores in Canada (RONA) usually has them in stock for that price.

HDMI = Digital Therefore No real reason to spend much at all really, except to get a decent connector that wont slip out, though that's more of a problem with Optical.

I agree with teh LORD. monoprice seems the cheapest place.

I just bought a 10' HDMI cable from the Amazon marketplace for less than $6 shipped. Works just fine.

Also look for oxygen free copper cables or you wont get 1080 pee.

Monster Cables aren't always a bad investment - especially if you use a ceiling-mounted projector. I'm using a 2(retails for 20) 5m hdmi cable and can't get a perfect picture when using 1080p @ 60 Hz(I get some weird lines across the screen).
