Agreed. I always buy the cheapest HDMI cables I can find. The technology in HDMI cables means that you either get a picture or you don't. HDMI cables are immune to the signal degradation that previous AV cables were susceptible to if they had no insulation, cheap contacts, and uber-thin cheap wires. HDMI cables either work or they don't. There is no middle ground. If you get a picture, then it's 100%.
