If you are considering an upgrade to your home-entertainment system, you will need the right HDMI cable to support emerging technologies. HDMI Cable were developed to combine high-definition audio and visual cables into one standard cable, and they continue to evolve as more advanced technologies become available. HDMI cables connect your Blu-ray player, gaming console, stereo system and cable or satellite box to your flat-screen HDTV or projector. They provide the first uncompressed, all-digital audio and visual interface in one connection, which makes installation easier. The sound and picture they transmit are also better quality than ever before. We discuss more about how these cables work in our articles about HDMI cables. However, not all high-speed HDMI cables are made the same. In this review, we discuss variations in the cables' manufacturing processes and materials used that will alter their quality. We also discuss how the cables continue to evolve to support new features. The cables we rank the highest include the Monster 1000HD Ultimate High-Speed HDMI Cable with Ethernet, Cables HDMI 1.4 Hi-Speed Cable with Ethernet and the Monster 700HD Advanced High-Speed HDMI Cable with Ethernet. The best HDMI cables include an Ethernet-channel component that provides an internet connection for devices that are equipped to receive the internet through an HDMI cable. Most devices you purchase today that have HDMI ports also provide access to the internet, either through browsers or apps, so cables with Ethernet eliminate one more cord you need during the installation process. The Ethernet connection also provides an improvement over a wireless connection. Many HDMI cables today also support 3D and advanced color capabilities. If you have devices with such features, you need a cable that has the capacity to transmit all that data. Otherwise, you will be paying a lot for features from which you won't benefit.
