As a serious gamer you want to have the best experience possible. To do this you need to connect your Xbox 360 or PS3 to a high definition display using a quality HDMI ® cable.
Both the Microsoft Xbox 360 and the Sony Playstation 3 transfer data from console to dispaly at a rate exceeding 6 gigabits per second. This is seriously fast. It is about 7 times faster than a standard DVD and about 4 time faster than a Blu-ray DVD.
To get that ultimate gaming experience you will need to use a well constructed category 2 high speed HDMI 1.3 cable.
Some people assume that as the signals are digital either the cable works or not. Sometimes however the 1s and 0s aren't all there because of signal degradation due to inferior cable construction. That can be especially true with gaming consoles that push HDMI cables to thier limit. In a badly constructed cable the signal will degrade gracefully, to a point and then break up. Digital signal processors in your display can work with a degraded signal but will deliver less than perfect sound and pictures. You will see this degradation as sparkles and pixellation particularly in dark scenes. You can never improve a digital signal by using an expensive cable but you can certainly degrade a signal using an inferior cable.
All HDMI Systems cables are fully HDMI 1.3 Category 2 high speed, so are ideal for use with either Xbox 360 or PS3. You simply have to choose the length you need.
