I use the Wire World too. Use VDH on the bedroom set as I am a dealer, it is good also. Monoprice is quite good for a very low price.

Ya, me 3. (After incorrectly assuming more expensive is better.) I own one of them there 6 hundred dollar WireWorld Silver hdmi's.
I have 2 cable boxes going to the same tv and the freebie from TWC is the WW's equal.--Why would someone need 2 boxes going to the same tv?--I can record 2 programs at the same time and watch a third,on the other box. Also, I can give the programs I'm recording a head start,(NBA finals)then zoom thru the commercials.--My tv is the Pioneer elite plasma,60 inch-er.
The Amazon's Ultra-High-Speed HDMI Cable is fantastic and a great value. It is very well shielded. I can easily see the difference when
comparing to a stocked cable. Playing the blu ray disc "Up", I can see noise in the blue sky with stocked cable but it is
absolutely noise free using the Amazon cable. I got it for $19.95 (3M) but its price has gone up to 25.90 recently but it is still a great buy
All I can say is that my wife knows nothing and cares less about audio and video and she had no trouble seeing the difference between first the stock cable and the Monoprice and then between it and the two more expensive ones. Of course we have Direct TV; I have never had a cable picture I was happy with.
From Dave Schulte, the technical explanation why 2 meter length is better than 1 meter length is that there is tremendous ringing produced by the short length, the 2 meter length creates a "delay line" so that when the signal bounces at the end, which invariably occurs, it does not come back so fast as to disturb the signal being sent at the begining of the cable... After you get a hdmi cable like a Wireworld silver starlight 5.2 the law of diminishing returns sets in.
I tried some diy dh labs power plus power cables on my pioneer plasma and video gear and liked it better than my CryoMax 3 power cable with Oyaide p/c-004 connectors!.. I found a review on the dh labs power cables and the reviewer replaced his high priced power cables with dh labs for video too... http://www.enjoythemusic.com/magazine/viewpoint/0803/aachapter47.htm
I have been trying out a 2.0 meter Cryo'd Wegrzyn 5N Pure Silver Signature HDMI cable and its by FAR the BEST HDMI I have EVER tried ! My Cryo'd Wireworld Starlight 5.2 HDMI cable looked very FLAT and DULL looking compared to my new Wegrzyn 5N silver HDMI cable !! For more than two years now I have been missing out on the FULL POTENTIAL of my 9.5G Pioneer Plasma !! With this Wegrzyn 5N HDMI cable in my system its like my Pioneer Plasma got a FULL CALIBRATION !! Yes its that GOOD !! The Sharpness, Picture Depth, Brightness and DEEP Rich Vivid Colors are really AMAZING !!.. "THIS IS A MUST TRY HDMI CABLE" !!
