I know most of you probably know about this place, but I just thought I would post this since I did not find a topic.

monoprice.com has long been known as the cheapest place to buy USB, Network, HDMI, and many other cables, period.

Their service is excellent as well.

Our business just ordered another round of Network and USB cables and saved close to $1000 compared to retail stores like Best Buy, etc.

We have had Network cables from monoprice throughout our building for a few years and have had NO ISSUES at all. Most of the cables in my home (S-Video, HDMI, USB, CAT5e, etc. are also from monoprice and they have been perfect.

The Quality of the cables I have bought has been as good or in many cases, much better than more expensive cables elsewhere.

I know there are other online retailers like Firefold that sell for similar prices, but I have not found their service to be near as good as monoprice.

Second monoprice.com Recommended above all others. Every time someone asks about cables, someone responds monoprice.com, but you're right, I don't remember seeing a standalone topic.

nothing but positive experience with them in the past - even through a return.

Most of my gaming & entertainment stuff is hooked together with Monoprice.com cables, and I buy them for work needs as well.

Highly recommended.

I support people buying anything BUT shitty Monster brand cables, and Monoprice is aces across the board.

Wanted to throw in my recommendation as well (as if they needed more). Their A/V cables are very high quality for the prices they're asking. Definitely the first place I look for any cables, converters, etc.

Another positive recommendation here. I've bought a powered component cable switcher and several HDMI, component, and USB cables from them. Incredible prices and great service.

Another positive for me here too.

This company is very smart. They know that by providing excellent prices and customer service will bring in tons of word of mouth customers. :)

I've gotten HDMI, component and Toslink cables from 'em and love 'em. Their banana plugs are pretty sweet too (and inexpensive to boot).

If you need banana plugs I'd suggest getting the "solder type" - you can just screw one end off, put your speaker wire in and screw the top right back on...no soldering gun needed.

I've gotten HDMI, HDMI/DVI, and Toslink cables from them and found them to be extremely well made. The service is fast and courteous and you simply will not beat their prices. What Monster Cable and others of its ilk perpetrate is a crime.

There is literally nothing bad that can be said about monoprice.

it was probably in there because I'm a flaming homosexual.

I can't seem to find an XBOX 360 VGA cable on monoprice.com? Do I just have poor search skills, or don't they carry them?

I reccomend monoprice all the time to friends. They are skeptical at first, because the prices are so low compared to most electronic store cables. But after explaining the markup on cables, and telling them to do some searching on the internet in the audio/video forums, they usually come around.

Sorry. I don't believe they carry gaming cables (i.e., cables that include a proprietary connector for a console).

They switched the position of the green and blue cables on my component cables.:-P
