If you've ever paid a total of more than $2.30 for an HDMI cable, read this!

I just got this reader tip re cheap HDMI cables:

For anyone needing an HDMI cable for your Blu Ray or Regular CD to your TV.
There is an inexpensive one for abut $12.99 at Big Lot’s stores.
I’m using it with my Samsung Blu ray and it works great.
– Carlos

That’s exactly the kind of tips we like, Carlos, and we appreciate it.  Thirteen bucks is a great deal when compared to the rip-off pricing at most electronics store. But as it turns out, you can have six foot HDMI cables delivered to your door for $2.30 – and most of that expense is shipping – the actual cost of the cable is one cent!

Here’s a story we did on this a few months back: Are HDMI Cables a Rip-off?

Here’s a story CNET did on HDMI cables comparing price to quality. (Hint: Expensive HDMI cables are not worth the money!)

Here’s an Amazon search showing you where you can buy HDMI cables for $2.30 including shipping.

Keep those tips coming in!
