Exactly what you would expectNov 03, 2011
By Stephen M. Lerch First, the price on these are right. Currently Amazon is selling the set for $13.
Second, they work. You can't ask for more. Low price and it does the job.
Now add in the fact that both are high quality cables and feel pretty rugged, and you have an amazing deal from Amazon.
Comparing the HDMI to the Monoprice cable I have, the Amazon cable doesn't have the crazy jacket that the Monoprice I bought does (think I bought in wall cables like an idiot), but both provide flawless picture and sound through my AV Receiver to my TV. The Amazon cable has better friction with the input on the TV, meaning it isn't as easy to pull out of the jack as the Monoprice does. Of course, once you have the system setup and the cable plugged in, you aren't likely to move it much if at all anyway, so the chance of you unplugging the Monoprice is low anyway. Amazon does have the advantage there
Will this HDMI cable stand up to the rigors of the Monster Cable tests for throughput? I don't know, but for me, it doesn't matter. The testing is really mostly only relevant for longer runs; for a 6.5 ft HDMI cable you don't really have that issue.
The Toslink (optical) cable works just as well as the Monster Cable optical cable I bought 7 years ago does and it was MUCH cheaper ($50 for the Monster optical w/o the HDMI). Definitely worth the price.
The frustration free packaging is just that, frustration free.
Great cables at a great price. Don't hesitate to pick these up if you need a pair.
If you just need HDMI and not optical, you can pick up a single at this link: AmazonBasics High-Speed HDMI Cable If you want just 2 HDMI cables, you can pick up a double pack of HDMI cables here: AmazonBasics 2-Pack, High-Speed HDMI Cables
Definitely worth the money. No question.

Just as good as any HDMI cable but $25 cheaper. And you get two!Aug 09, 2012
By Geeker There is a great myth about it being necessary to buy $100+ hdmi cables. The expensive ones are supposedly better quality and have better jacketing. The truth is that hi-speed hdmi cables with ethernet are exactly the same. Sure, the expensive cables may have better materials and better quality control, and they may have better jackets. However, AmazonBasics has not let me down! Their hdmi cables are as good as my MonsterCables which costed me $80 when I first bought my 1080p/240hz lcd screen. I bought an AmazonBasics cable when I bought another flat screen and had no issues with the picture quality or refresh rate. I played on my PS3 and watched bluray videos just fine. And, the jacketing on that first pair of AmazonBasics hmdi cable I bought was ten times better and only cost me $8. Unless you're a videophile who owns a $5,000+ flat screen and have the most expensive equipment that money can buy, then you would probably be happier with a really expensive cable, although, it would just be as overpriced as all the other stuff you have purchased in the past. AmazonBasics is the way to go for cables!

Quality cables from the word go.Oct 27, 2011
By GLENN LEVY
"lover of fun"
I have received several other cables from the Amazon basic cable set. They have all been of the highest quality. I expected nothing different here from this set. I was not disappointed, these wires are the highest quality. This set is perfect length for behind TV and stereo equipment. Nothing but positive impressions about use, durability and overall sense of quality at a really decent price if were to buy. If I needed cables of any type, I would look into this line for cost and quality combined. Get them!

PERFECT for a PS3 and XBOX 360Dec 03, 2011
By Relentless Strider I happen to own a Xbox 360 and now a PS3 and boy these HDMI cables work like magic. Just about the right price, a rigid build and most of all it delivers the 1080p in the PS3. I just stack my gaming consoles in the TV stand and dont move them around a lot, So the cables are perfect for me. Im giving it five star for price and performance. Cant get any better!!!! I would recommend buying two cables together, for the best deal.

Works as advertisedNov 26, 2012
By Ray I read that the prices of HDMI cables are not indicative of their performance, but I've experienced differently. I bought the cheapest cables I could find (~$2) and used it to connect my Roku to our TV. When we were streaming Netflix, my wife and I noticed that the audio was occaisionally cutting out. Initially we thought it was due to a Netflix outage or network connection, but after a while I suspected differently. I ordered these shielded cables and voila! Everything works without hiccups. Awesome!
