A simple lesson in why you should never buy an HDMI cable from a conventional retailer, especially if that retailer is called Harvey Norman. Catch Of The Day is selling a 2M HDMI cable from professional cable over-charger Monster for $14.99 (plus postage). The cheapest 2M Monster HDMI cable from Harvey Norman costs $139, and it will sell you a pricier variant for $249.
Even Catch Of The Day isn’t the cheapest deal going; there are plenty of much cheaper 2M cable deals, postage included, on eBay. Remember: HDMI is a digital signal. It’s there or it isn’t. Overpriced cabling makes no difference, except to your bank balance.
