High quality HDMI cable... But a little too thick for my liking.
on 9 July 2015
I got this item for free via KabelDirekt on Amazon in exchange for a review on here. In all honesty, it does what it says on the tin. It's a HDMI cable and gets the job done. No issues at all plugging it into the TV and hooking my laptop up. It seems better built than most other HDMI cables out there and much more durable due to the thickness of the cord. The ends are also nice and of better quality than cheaper alternatives. The added length of 5 meters rather than the standard 1 also makes it more versatile as it reaches further, but that goes without saying.
However, due to the thickness and rounded shapes of the ends I did find it more difficult to plug in (see photo 2) as you have to maneuvere it more and the cable is thick... Really thick - double the width at least of your standard cable which you can see for yourself in the first photo I've posted (left is standard, right is this product). Will it cause problems on a day to day level? Provably not, but I personally prefer my products to be streamlined so it's out of preference really. For the quality I would definitely recommend this product, but I would have personally stuck with my standard HDMI, skinny cable. Nice little freebie from KabelDirekt, but don't think I would have spent the £5.99 on it myself.
