Premium Gold Plated HDMI Cable with Ethernet

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

With so many devices, boxes and accessories we use, it can be difficult to get them all attached and ready to go. We have had to add attachments, buy extra cords and a lot more, just to get all of our toys to work. It can be an annoying and trying process to add or remove a console or box, especially if it is just me.

While changing things around once again to make room for my sons XBox, we realized we needed a new HDMI cable to run from our box to our new television. This was the perfect place for me to try the Premium Gold Plated HDMI Cable with Ethernet that I had received for review. 

The first thing you notice  upon opening these is how strong the cables are. They are quality made and very sturdy, with gold plated connector tips for optimum signal transfer. 

• HDMI® Ethernet Channel - The HDMI 1.4 specification adds a data channel to the HDMI® connection, enabling high-speed, bi-directional communication. Connected devices that include this feature can send and receive data via 100 Mb/sec Ethernet, making them instantly ready for any IP-based application.
• Audio Return Channel - The new specification adds an audio channel that will reduce the number of cables required to deliver audio "upstream" from a TV to an A/V receiver for processing and playback. In cases where a TV features an internal content source, such as a built-in tuner or DVD player, the Audio Return Channel allows the TV to send audio data upstream to the A/V receiver via the HDMI cable, eliminating the need for an extra cable.
• 3D Support - The 1.4 version of the specification defines common 3D formats and resolutions for HDMI-enabled devices, enabling 3D gaming and other 3D video applications.
• 4K Resolution Support - The new specification enables HDMI devices to support extremely high HD resolutions, effectively four times the resolution of a 1080p device. Support for 4K allows the HDMI interface to transmit digital content at the same resolution as the state-of-the-art Digital Cinema systems used in many movie theaters.

Using these cables was a snap. They come ready to uncoil and attach. Connecting them was simple and I was finished in minutes. This is the perfect way to connect game consoles, blue ray or dvd players and more to your tv without a lot of hassle.
