it's still $5 too expensive. digital = digital = brand and "gold plating" means nothing. buy from monoprice.com or $2 + s/h

What I was thinking, has already been stated, by multiple users.. Seriously, Monster is one of the worst companies ever, taking advantage of people who don't know any better.

Now we just have to wait for enough suckers to buy this over-priced cable so we can get to the next woot-off item.

Complete rip off. For this price you should get 4 of them.

Way to stall a Woot-Off...

From what I can tell this is a HDMI 1.3 cable.

I recently upgraded my entertainment system after my TV died. In order to support all of the latest standards (3D, CEC, etc.) I had to replace all of my HDMI 1.3 and 1.3a cables with 1.4 cables (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HDMI).

My recommendation would be to stay away from HDMI 1.3 cables and buy 1.4 cables instead.

I really hope this is the White Collar Resort Prison. If not then i feel really bad for all the suckers.

If this sells out I guarantee the woot employees just point and laugh.

I bought 5 no name ones for 10 bucks a while back. Free shipping and I couldn't tell the difference.

I've got an inferiority complex...

But not a very good one.

When Woot says "first sucker" they really meant it in this case.

I got something better than luck.

MONSTER = More Overpriced Normal Stuff That Exceeds Ripoff.

Mind-blowing. We need PSAs to inform people about the difference between digital and analog signals.

I used to dig Monster back in the 90s when I would buy analog cables for various things, but when digital came out they decided to move to a business plan of blatantly ripping people off. I wonder if they'll ever get hit with a lawsuit for false advertising.
