SAY NO TO MONSTER CABLES
Following my blog about my first High-Definition Television (LCD), I found out first-handed that the cables that came with my gaming consoles looked REALLY REALLY UGLY on HDTV (I was like wtf why did the PS3 looked better on my tube-TV ).
The solution? buy the proper cables of course!
See I did not know anything about cables, I just know that I have always hated 'Monster Cables' and so I googled around.
I was planning to buy Belkin's HDMI cables for $20 each at a store I found during boxing week, but a bit more googling bought me to MonoPrice.com
See, MonoPrice.com is the type of shop that Cheap Ass Gamer(s) is all about!
It was my first time to the web-site, even with all the good comments and what-nots, I did not know if what the people are saying is legit or not, so what actually helped me decided was this thread.
After reading that thread...the conclusion I came to is that;
-MonoPrice.com makes good quality cables.
-MonoPrice.com is cheap because they sell directly to people instead of retail.
-HDMI cables are all the same as long as their gold-plated (prevents something bad, I forgot what).
One thing I love about MonoPrice.com is how they explain everything in Layman terms with their 'Knowledge Base' tab on each product! .
In the end I bought
-1xHDMI cable for my PS3.
-1xHDMI cable for my Xbox 360.
-1xComponent cable for my Wii.
I am waiting for product to be in stock for
-1xComponent cable for my PS2.
When the cables arrive, I will post a blog full of pictures and my impression for you guys at C.A.G!
