Well, this is where it ends, folks.


Edit: Not that I'm complaining, but why are people buying this?

quality posts: 21 Private Messages jon98gn

Hmmm... $9.99 to take 2 overly expensive Monster HDMI cables to make a long overly expensive Monster HDMI cable. Schnope. I'll just buy a new cheap HDMI cable from some other brand.

is this a signal booster for an HDMI cable that's too long? because I was under the distinct impression that HDMI was digital and 1's and 0's either show up (picture happens) or not... I wasn't aware of partial signal/picture degradation

so what does this do in reality?

this is funny, it says the retail price is 149.99, at $10 it is kinda of on the high side.

Well maybe the real game is to see who can get the most "gray/sold-out Bandolier of Carrots#39;s in their cart" I have 4. Winner gets the real Badgers or Chipmunks?

Sooner or later, it all comes down to money...

Have people really paid anything near $150 for this? I guess not, since it's here. $10 maybe if you need it. Otherwise a rip off.

It is not a booster it is a connector, so you can connect two cables together to make longer one, with the price of cables, you can probably just buy the one longer cable for the same price as this connector

"signal amplifier and equalizer restore original source signal and provide boost for maximum long length HD performance"

Psh, yeah right. When it's digital, it's either on or off. not in between. So by that same coin, there can be no "restoration of signal". There can only be extension of a signal. Only stupid people buy "gold plated" and "gas insulated" hdmi cables at best buy or radioshack or what have you.

I think a lot of us are assuming. I'm a programmer, so I am thinking it's not that hard to throw together a website that'll automatically scrape the front page of woot.com and look within the descriptor tag and then automatically forward itself to the link. From there they could just manually do the clicking. Probably a lot faster then most people copy and pasting the url into their browser.

Without any source of power, all it's doing is coupling two cables. all media has a point where impedance creates too much noise on the line to successfully transmit to the receiver.

In general, you want to keep unrepeated HDMI signal on a length of < 50 ft (which is normally the largest length you'll find in retail sales)

It turns 1's and 0's into 1's and 0's and $ into $$$$$ in the Monster Exec's Lamborghini fund.

I am not an electrical engineer. However, do you remember when they first started replacing analog cell phones with digital cell phones? A degraded analog signal often has static but is intelligible. A degraded digital signal where the processor is just picking a "0" or a "1" millions of times is noise. Same thing with HDTV signals.

None of this is an endorsement of this product.

Well, once the signal is inside the cable, it's an analog manifestation of a digital signal. This item is still a scam, though.

This is the correct answer. Source: I'm an electrical engineer.
