Get the right size
Don't pay extra money for a long cable when you don't need it. If you are wiring between a cable/satellite receiver and an audio receiver, you'll typically just need a short 3 foot cable to do the trick. When going from a cable/satellite receiver and/or an audio receiver to your TV or monitor, a 10 foot cable should fit the bill. For longer distances, we even have a 25 foot cable available. Measure twice, purchase once.
Are all cables the same?
No. That is why HDMI cables have specific ratings; an HDMI 1.0 cable has very different specifications than an HDMI 1.4 cable (see chart below). Manufacturers must go through rigorous testing to ensure that cables meet a specific rating. Some of the big brands will point out extreme manufacturing processes and the use of special rare earth materials to try and sell you on their exorbitant prices. But once you compare HDMI cables with the same rating, the differences are few, and for 99.9% of the population, undetectable. That's because in the end, all cables are certified for their specific rating by HDMI testing standards. So try our HDMI 1.4 cable against any other HDMI 1.4 cable - we know it will stand up to the test.
As stated above, our cables offer the same major specifications as all the big brand names - so why are our cables more affordable? It's simple, we cut out the frills - no celebrity endorsements, no national marketing campaigns, no fancy packaging and we manufacturer in bulk. We have eliminated all the major costs to deliver a cable that is certified with all the same features you need to get the most out of your high-defintion home theater components.
With over 20 years of feedback and our ever-growing product knowledge and expertise, Smarthome has been able to identify the best features and trends in consumer electronics and other products for your home. We have used this to create a SELECT line of products that meet or exceed the specifications of several household brand names, while delivering them to you, our customer, at an affordable price that won't empty your wallet.
See a comparison of HDMI cable versions below. Versions 1.0 - 1.2 are basically obsolete and no longer in production. Version 1.3 will support many older home applications, however it is in very limited production now. Version 1.4 is the most popular and is applicable to almost all of the existing and near future home theater HDMI installations, including most new UHD 4K monitors. Version 2.0 is very costly, in limited production and not really needed at this time - typically it is only going to be necessary for homes equipped with monitors using UHD 4K with 3D.
