Official HDMI cable worth it?


Active Member
is it a waste of money when you can get cheaper options for a 3rd of the price?

I got my PS3 yesterday and was shocked they only supply composite cables for something they sell as HD equipment..... enough of that... I looked at the official HDMI cable and couldn't bring myself to part with £30 for that....

anyone got one or seen one who can tell me whether its worth it over the budget ones?

ooh.. thought HMV had it at £29.99

ok, thanks for the replies.. I will go pick up a budget one tomorrow then... will use my SKY HD one for now

They're quite hard to get hold of on the net, but my father in law got one in our local choices on launch day so they are about.

i got a cheap HDMI cable off ebay for £4 (inc. P&P) - works perfectly.

Remember, HDMI is digital, so more expensive cables wont give better picture. Either it works or it doesn't.
