do they have a free shipping code ¿?

if not then they are comparable if not more expensive than PCMicroStore.com. ( they frequently have 3 off 6 or 5 off 10 deals)

Ordered component cables and a sd card for my new wii. Both work great and were very cheap, shipped fast too. Ordered late Sunday night and they were here on Wednesday with regular shipping.

Monoprice kicks azz. The only problem I've ever had with them was with a cheap fm transmitter that was awful quality. One email and they refunded everything including shipping and they didn't even make me return the item.

Dude, nice!

I just ordered my 6 foot silver HDMI cable from them around noon PDT. Their site clearly states that orders have to be in before 6 am to go out the same day, but since I live within an hour of the place, I called and asked when the order would go out. The girl said that she would make sure that it went out today-- I upgraded over the phone to priority just in case to give it an extra push-- so I expect to see it Monday or Tuesday-- just in time for me to return my ridiculously overpriced Monster cable to Fry's to take advantage of their "http://www.cheapassgamer.com/forums/showthread.php?t=181740" Blu-ray deal ending on May 6th.

I suspect that due to my location someone will manually drop my package off today from them at the P.O., but I appreciate that they made that extra effort for me to aid me in avoiding my plight.

And save me an extra trip over to Fry's.

I thought I had heard of some people picking items up themselves, but I don't see it anywhere on the site, so maybe they just got lucky.
Also why is it that when i click the "Diablo" picture, i get sent to pc games without the Diablo and even when i searched for Diablo, i get no results.
Oh boy...You said there was going to be Diablo op. Where is my Diablo? I dont see Diablo. You promised me Diablo.

Oh no, you totally can. It's on their payment screen--pickup in-person. i just live too far to warrant driving over there on the 210 to get a cable. Traffic's horrible once you pass Allen Avenue heading east-- that combined with gas prices, I'll have it shipped to me. Which I got Monday from ordering Friday.

Fry's, here I come with your overpriced cable. Gimme my money back.

I just placed my second order with Monoprice. I was very impressed with my first order. I received a delivery confirmation number via e-mail within minutes of my order, and received the cables in 3 days.

Got these cables from Amazon. Were like $1 cheaper than everything else on monoprice...at the cost of super slow shipping. Wish I would have checked here first, heh.

I've used Monoprice for a couple years now, fantastic prices.
Just ordered all the necessary parts to wire my home with Cat6 ethernet jacks and put some proper wall plates up - total cost was under $30.00.

The optical cable that they sent to me doesn't work, I hooked up my PS3 to it and it made a horrible static noise. I then connected it to the 360 and now there's no sound at all.

I'll call them today, hopefully they will just send me a replacement since I have to unplug/replug the one cable I have to hook up either the 360/PS3.

Cool site, but I have a question. PS3 uses HDMI but damn, which kind? I went through the site and ended up being confused. I've never seen so many options.

Which one should I buy? :P

I may have already posted here, but I've spent well over a $100 on that site and I cannot recommend it enough. The quality of their cables is just exceptional. I think I have just about everything wired with cables from monoprice.com, now.

The best part is that even though it's hit and miss as far as quality is concerned, they are awesome about customer service because they do such high volume. I love it.

Only problem I've had is with their optical cables, they sent me a broken one and then the replacement was broken also.

I need to call them tomorrow and have them send me another.

I ordered a component cable for my Wii a few weeks ago and paid a little over $7 with shipping. I got an email with tracking info within 10 minutes of placing my order and it arrived in 3 days (Cali to WI). I'm glad I saw this thread. Thanks OP!

Monoprice is great.

I saw this thread after I ordered 2x 100ft spools of 12 AWG speaker cable from Monoprice for a home theater setup. The cable conductor is nice and thick like it's supposed to be (some cheap cable will have a thick jacket surrounding smaller conductors) , each spool was a single 100ft length as advertised ( some people will sell you a spool that's segmented and not a contiguous wire run). Both conducters in the wire were untinned copper, which to me is a plus) I searched retailers and etailers, and Monoprice's offerings on speaker wire were the best deals I was able to find.

Agreed. I bought 40', 10', & 6' HDMI cables plus 2 HDMI wall plates. Heavy gauge, high quality stuff. All for ~$83 shipped. This would have cost ~$400 elsewhere.

Just ordered 3 HDMI Cables from them today due to the overwhelming positive response for this merchant.

I hope these turn out better than the $5 HDMI cable I bought off someone on Amazon and stopped working a few days after...

I've got nothing but good things to say about the 2 orders I've made from monoprice. Both came quicker than they were supposed to. The first order I got 3 HDMI cables at $2.86 a piece along with some Wii component cables, 2 optical toslink cables, a regular component cable, and a DVI to HDMI adaptor. The 2nd order I got a 25' coax cable and splitter. These 2 orders combined were like $40 or less I think.
