I have read in several places recently that there is no difference
between expensive HDMI cabels and the cheaper kinds.  Most things I
have read state that since the signal is digital and won't degrade,
either the cable works or it is broken.  It won't matter if you by
$100 Monster cables or $20 cables from monoprice.
