    Just want to say the following is half true and half false:

    OK, I am definitely in favor of people getting reasonable priced hdmi and certainly do recommend monoprice for hdmi to my friends for example.

    But but when you read anywhere "digital signal either comes through or it doesn't" you know you are getting amateur advice.

    Runs of HDMI degrade quantitatively for certain. they are not either perfect or total failure. You will absolutely get sparkle, tiling and other problems gradually increasing at any length over a couple of meters at the common 28awg (guage).

    AS lot depends on port voltage. certain equipment like moto cable boxes deliver pretty strong voltage. others like oppo dvd players deliver notoriously low voltage at the digital port.

    Well we are talking about HDMI cables here. Honestly you points are well put but there are two types of Digital connections (in general). They either incorporate error corrections or they don't. HDMI (and DVI-D) don't incorporate error correction which makes them a little more vulnerable to transfer errors. Even so HDMI still has a certain Bit Error Rate (BER) at certain speeds and frequencies.

    On a short run (under 35 feet) there is just not enough mis match from point A to point B to require anything other than a standard quality cable build.
