Great Cable and Lifetime Warranty
This is a great cable and does the job. On the package it says the 700HD can do 1080p, 8-Bit Color, HDMI-CEC and 60 Hz (contrast with the 1000HD with can do 12-Bit Color, 120 Hz, and lossless Dolby TrueHD/DTS Master-HD audio). The thing is in retrospect however is that my twelve-dollar 8-ft Ultra Pro HDMI Cable by GE delivered the same 1080p picture for my upconverting DVD player. Maybe the difference will come when I go Blu-ray and have uncompressed 8-channel 192kHz LPCM (Linear PCM) audio going through the cable as well. The DVD standard maxes out at Dolby Digital and DTS 5.1, requiring much less bandwidth than newer Blu-ray audio formats. I would say go with the Monster Cable if you are already on Blu-ray, but if you are only on an upconverting DVD player you are safe with a 12-dollar generic HDMI 1.3 cable.<br/><br/>One more thing to add about Monster is you can't beat the Lifetime Warranty and the unmatched styling of the cable. Also, the package came with a 111 minute DVD by Disney and Monster about how to move to the High Definition world - shopping for, hooking-up, and calibrating your new HD home theater.
