5.0 out of 5 stars For picture quality - quite simply the best as of Feb 2014, 30 Jan. 2014

This review is from: Monster ISF 2000HD Hyper HDMI Cable 4.88m Mp3 Soun (Electronics)
I'm an experienced videophile with top shelf equipment.

I’ve just auditioned several 1.4 HDMI cables from top brands including AudioQuest and WireWorld and for picture quality, as of early 2014, this Monster 2000HD HDMI cable was surprisingly the clear winner.

Specifically, the television screen had more defined resolution (more detail between strands of hair, fur on a sweater, blades of grass). The colors were less bloomy and looked more natural, blacks were more black. Animated graphics like the spinning chrome/gold "Universal Pictures Globe” at the beginning of films or the opening titles on modern Pixar blue-rays were sharper and more three dimensional.

This Monster HDMI cable was superior to prior top-shelf Monster HDMI cables I still own.

For dedicated HDMI audio only, I'm not sure this is the best choice. I didn't test the HDMI cables for audio because I've found high-end surround sound through HDMI to be inferior to dedicated 7.1 analog outs from my BD player directly into my multi-channel pre-amp.

But on the picture side, it's darn strange how much difference HDMI cables really do affect image quality and once you've seen the differences testing them back to back to back to back to back and you find a clear winner, you're grinning every time you're watching something new because you remember the strengths of your chosen setup over the others.

It's slightly reassuring that at this price the 2000HD HDMI cables are 4K compliant.

I've just ordered two more (5ft, 12ft, and 16ft in total) and nope they ain’t cheap.
