My husband and I just bought a 40" LCD TV back in June. Since then, we've been trying to determine which HDMI cord to purchase. With the old saying, "You get what you've paid for" lingering in the back of our minds, we couldn't help but wonder if the more expensive cords were better than the less expensive ones. Also, we were particulary concerned about sound loss and wanted to know if it were possible to find a cord that eliminated the problem completely. We did the research and read lots of reviews on numerous cords, brand names, prices, etc. Though it did help, we weren't totally satisfied with the information we received, so we finally decided to start experimenting. We ended up trying 3 different cords that were all purchased at Walmart. The first one was the Phillips Gold-plated Cord ($48). The second was the Sony flat cord ($59.88), and the third was this RCA cord. The verdict - we decided to return the Phillips and Sony and we kept the RCA cord. It was simply the best value for the price. We couldn't tell a difference in the picture and sound quality. Good sharp, crisp picture. Honestly, the sound is about the same as compared to the others, we haven't found a cord yet that didn't have some loss in sound. So in the end, we decided to keep this one, return the others, and put the extra savings towards another purchase later on. Seemed like the best way to go for us. Hope this helps!
