HDMI cables - Is there really a difference?

I've been searching the posts to find an answer and though it's been brought up a few times, there clearly is no consensus. I just want to know if there is really a discernable difference between the generic HDMI cables that come with some components and the higher quality cables, like Monster. I just returned a Monster cable to Best Buy because I didn't realize my new Directv receiver came with one. The sales guy in the Magnolia store just rolled his eyes at me, as though I was doing my TV an incredible injustice by going with the no-name brand. I certainly don't mind going back with my tail between my legs and shelling out the $100-plus for a quality cable, but not if my untrained eyes won't be able to tell the difference. Any feedback anyone could provide would be greatly appreciated.
