If you've done your research on HDMI cables, you'll often hear that a higher price does not always equal a higher quality. The story goes that because the signal between devices is 100% digital, the picture and audio will either work properly or not at all, therefore different cables will not yield significantly different results. I'm honestly not sure if the theory is true, but if it is, then the RCA 6-feet HDMI cable is about as good a bargain you can get for the price.
I've tested the RCA HDMI cable on three different setups: a Sony PlayStation 3 connected to a Toshiba 52" DLP television, a DirecTV HD satellite receiver hooked up to the same television, and a Dell desktop and 24" LED Dell monitor. Maybe I would notice a difference on a higher end system, but on my equipment there was zero difference between my new RCA cable and the previous HDMI cables I was using. Since the quality was the same, all that mattered to me was the price.
And I was lucky enough to find these RCA cables on Black Friday this year at Kmart for $8.99 (or "Blue" Friday in Kmart lingo). But even if you can't get them at that price, at an MSRP of $19.99, the RCA is still relatively cheap compared to similar HDMI cables you can find at other retail establishments. For example, the lowest price I've seen at a competitor in recent memory was $25 and that was for a Dynex HDMI cable, a heavily discounted brand. Online retailers are still your best bet for rock bottom prices, but if you can’t go that route try Kmart instead. Grabbing the RCAs on sale for about $10-15 is still a steal.
Very affordable and works great!! Very durable
