I've ordered several HDMI and USB cables from Monoprice in the past and have been very pleased with their customer service and quality of the products. I just ordered some RCA couplers and audio extension cable for less than $4 shipped. Compare that to the $17+ I would have to spend at Radio Shack for the exact same things.

Can someone point me to the product ID number for PS3 Optical Toslink cables on monoprice? The PS3 101 thread is way too long to search and it only lists IDs for HDMI cables. Thanks in advance!

I order cables from Monoprice.com all the time. None of them have failed me, and some of them have been in use for over two years.

Their shipping is quick, prices reasonable for both cables and shipping, and they have a great assortment of cables.

I always forget. Here is the post I wrote a while back in regards to this question, when I did some research.
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.

Over Christmas, I got my in-laws and a couple other relatives on the Monoprice bandwagon. One got himself a new HDTV and Blu-ray player. He also got duped into buying a Monster HDMI cable from CC. I told him to take it back, and he bought himself a Monoprice HDMI for less than $10 shipped.

Same thing with my in-laws. They had bought a USB cable from Best Buy for their new printer. The new cable I ordered for them---less than $4 shipped.

Gotta love Monoprice.

My friend had a similar experience - needed a vga=>dvi adapter I think. I figured, "that can't cost more than maybe $5 retail." I think Staples had them for like $30. I told him, wait a few days, I'll get you one for cheap, you won't owe me anything. I think I probably got him this, it's currently $1.68.

I think people take the 'you get what you pay for' adage too seriously. If you try sometimes, you might find, you get what you need. (And price isn't always an indicator of what you need).

If your X360 has an HDMI port, any HDMI cable will do.

Purchased 3 HDMI 1.3a cables (in specific colors to match what they run to), 100ft 12AWG speaker wire, 7 pairs of closed-screw banana plugs, and a high quality cable for my sub, all under 100 bucks (overnight delivery was only 8 bucks total to where i live).

I installed everything right before Christmas, and i have to say that from all the great things I've heard they still vastly exceeded my expectations. I doubted the cost-to-quality ratio before the items arrived, but wow, you can spend an insane amount more at your local best buy for products inferior or if maybe the same as these.

Thanks for reminding me, I forgot all about banana plugs. I've been meaning to buy some for over 3 years.

Since the 360 only does HDMI 1.2, any HDMI cable they sell works, though for the price difference between the non-1.3a and the 1.3a cables, it's worth spending the slightly extra money to make sure you can use them anywhere.

This should also include amazon sellers as well. I have picked up not only HDMI cables but also Digital Optical cables off of amazon for the same or less then what monoprice has had them listed.

Thank you.

This MonoPrice elitism is out of control.

MonoPrice's price's are not nearly as good as Amazons, or at times other sites as well.

My cord from Monoprice only works on my 360, not my PS3.
I got a $2 cord from Amazon that runs both perfectly.


Don't fall for MonoPrice hype until you've searched better sites 1st.

I've never had any issue with any Monoprice cable I've ordered, be it Ethernet, component, composite, HDMI or AC cord. They've made good cables, and I've ordered numerous times from them, without any issue on the order.

There are other options besides Monoprice.com out there, though I've never had a bad experience with them, so I keep going back to them.

Really? They had them at Monoprice, at the link he gave, for $3.45. Is that not low enough?

Same here. The only issue I've ever had with them was non-cable related (crappy fm transmitter) and 1 email took care of the problem. They promptly refunded my money no questions asked and didn't even make me send the product back.

Cheap prices + great customer service = customer loyalty

I also order most of my cables from Monoprice, but currently all the really cheap cables are OOS.

The reason why I use MonoPrice is for their multi-colored cables. I have blue running into my PS3, green into the 360 and white to the DVR. Makes it look festive.
