Nov. 22, 2022

An HDMI connector is the standard interface for connecting modern audio-visual devices together. When you are looking to buy a new cable, there are different colors, lengths, materials, specifications, and prices. It can seem impossible to choose the best HDMI cable.

Read on to find the best HDMI cable for you.

 

1. Materials

 

Most cables come with a standard protective PVC plastic exterior and shielding to prevent signal interference. Some brands will come with a nylon braided cord, making the cable more flexible and easier to move in tight spaces. Otherwise, it just makes it looks nice. It shouldn’t matter either way for most people, but a more flexible and smaller cable may ease installation.

 

2. Specification

 

Most people just need a category 2 high-speed HDMI cable these days. This will ensure that the cable has been certified to transmit data up to 4K resolutions – and all current audio formats. But if you want to run the highest rates at 8K, you might need an Ultra High-Speed HDMI cable.

 

3. Length

 

Length is very important. As a rule of thumb, the shorter, the better – as really long wires can negatively affect the signal. If you get one too long, it might be hard to run the cable in a confined area. Getting one too short can negatively affect the signal.

 

4. Price

 

You can break the bank and buy a costly one if you like. However, it won’t perform any better than a good-quality budget cable. 

 

5. Color

 

Color won’t make much difference to the sound and picture! Some people will go for a discreet color that can be easily camouflaged among their equipment. Most will just get a black one!  That’s up to you.
