Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BillFromKCMO Works great so far
I bought this over a similar length cable from a website known for their cables, not because the cable was less expensive, but the pickup at store made it less expensive after shipping. I was very much on the fence about this cable vs theirs, however, and I'm glad I went with this one.
This cable is running from my Onkyo TX-NR717 receiver to my LG 55LM7600 TV. Currently, it's set up as a direct connection and it's near flawless. I've also tested it out with "keystone jacks" that I'll be using as part of the in-wall run; it handled 3D Blu-Ray from a Playstation 3 like a champ, and 3D gaming ran well as well.
Note that with HDMI cables, they will generally fall under the "it works or it doesn't" category. I have "cheap" HDMI cables from 2007 that still work fine (and even carry 3D Blu-Ray signals, which wasn't even thought of at the time). I've also bought Monster HDMI cables for friends that failed out of the blister pack (BTW, Monster cables are just a name brand and nothing special). I may have only had this cable for a week, but since it did everything I needed it to do out of the box and it feels well-made, I'm expecting it to last until I outgrow it's advertised capabilities (4k video among them).
The cable itself is rated CL3 for in-wall installation; this means you can use it in almost any circumstance.
The packaging also makes this feel like a much more expensive cable than it is. The box makes the product feel very high-end, even if it is not. Speaking of, it's packed well - not wound too tightly in the box and uncoils easily, unlike a fair number of inexpensive cables I've bought in the past.
If you're looking at doing a wall or mantle installation of your TV and you want a trouble-free cable to do your run from equipment to TV with, I can recommend this brand and series of cable without hesitation.
