Buying HDMi lead from eBay??


Active Member
I am wanting to buy an HDMi lead (preferably 5 meters) for my Xbox 360, all stores are way expensive so I am thinking an eBay job, does anyone know best make and version HDMi lead to stick with? And any good sellers on eBay ?

Thanks in advance

I've bought plenty of HDMI cables off of eBay and never had a problem with any. Since it's digital, you won't notice any difference in picture/audio quality either.

No need to take a risk with Ebay when there are reliable local guys doing guaranteed product for reasonable prices as above.

Ebay is a scammers paradise , theres good sellers too I suppose , but its anonymous nature and easily faked reps make it a magnet for conmen, one of the reasons I will never use it again.

Never spent more than a pound a metre on an HDMI cable including p&p and never will.

Only ever bought them from eBay.

Never had a single problem with any of them.

Ignore version references as the cable has nought to do with it.

Just don't buy longer than 10m and you'll be fine.
