    Shopping in Walthamstow Market today I saw what seem to be bargain cables:

    Poundland

    I was astonished to see some IXOS cables there and picked up:

    (1) USB 1 metre cable Type A to B connectors (Flexihead)

    (2) ADSL 6 metres cable (RJ11 --> RJ11)

    These were the only types available.

    Sainsbury's

    They had HDMI cables at £3.99. Nothing special there for the bargain hounds, perhaps, but the package includes a DVI --> HDMI converter which makes it a better deal. The cables were branded "Masterplug". Sorry, I can't remember the length as I didn't buy one (I'm kitted out HDMI-wise) — probably 2 metres but may be 1 metre.

    I wish my IXOS cables were cheap! But I guess with cables you get what you pay for!
