Hmm...this is the first time I've heard that. Sounds reasonable at first, then I saw this one though.



At the tail end of that, they talk about monster suing Disney, among a whole other slew of companies, for using the word "monster" anywhere, as if they completely own the word now. Even if Monster is a small company (not saying they are or aren't) there are many cases where the little guy does try to extort the big guy for money, and based on that newscast this seems like one of them.

They are even cheaper on eBay. I got two 6' cables shipped for under $12. They work perfect.

Holy crap that is just ridiculous - the word monster has existed for thousands of years and now monster cable owns the rights to it? Hope they loose all of their lawsuits and go out of business...

Whoever is behind all those numerous lawsuits @ Monster cable is a ****. The guy in the video is a **** as well.

I would never buy their overpriced crap in the first place, but after all this non sense I would do without rather than buy as much as an ink pen form them.

Maybe they are. Did you see their crummy office? ::

No seriously, people need jobs. Monster however need to cool it and reign in their legal team.

A sales guy at Best Buy tried to tell me that if I didn't buy Monster Cables, and only bought a generic HDMI cable, my tv would not output at 1080p, nor would I get the 120hz benefit from my set. I simply asked him, "Are you really that stupid, or are you just a shill? And, if you're just a shill, do people actually fall for that bull****?"

I bought a couple 6 foot HDMI 1.3a certified cables from Mono Price and it was around $15 with shipping. I ordered them on a Friday night and they arrived at my house Monday morning. I will buy from them again.

Here are the cables I bought http://www.monoprice.com/products/pr...seq=1&format=2
