Have you ever purchased an HDMI cable from a local electronics store? You got ripped off. That’s especially true if they managed to up-sell you on a “premium” cable made of “premium” materials. While it’s certainly true that not all cables are created equal and you might have issues if you buy cheapo HDMI cables for $1 each on Alibaba, any decent brand will be fine. In fact, you won’t notice any difference at all even between a $500 AudioQuest cable and AmazonBasics High-Speed HDMI Cables, which are on sale right now on Amazon for $4 each when you buy a 3-pack.
