Facts About Amazon Basics High-Speed HDMI Cable (18 Gbps, 4K/60Hz) – 6 Feet, Black
Since it is rated at 18 Gbits/sec, that means it is HDMI 2.0 or 2.0b.
I have an older Samsung 55″ TV, witch doesn’t have the Amazon Prime video app.. I was told by Amazon tech the the HDMI setup will work.
I have a HP laptop and will just move it near the TV(10ft. cable from Amazon).Hope it works, I want to see Jack Ryan. Must remember to change the source to the HDMI port.

every single HDMI cable on the planet will fit in the HDMI slot on your video card. A HDMI cable (whether 1.4, 2.0, 2.0a, etc.) has the exact same connector, hence, it is a HDMI cable. Just like any other cable (display port, rj45, vga, dvi, etc.) will fit in it’s coordinating input.

No.. I bought these cables to hook my Lg55uh8500 4k HDR tv to my Ps4 Pro that I just received and while it will display the picture cuts in and out constantly does not have the bandwidth needed in my set-up, the little cable that came with the ps4 pro works flawless.
Yes. HDMI 2.0, which is the most current standard. Read on, as I hope this helps.
The following info is fairly comprehensive and can be found at:
http://www.cnet.com/news/hdmi-2-0-what-you-need-to-know/… Yes. HDMI 2.0, which is the most current standard. Read on, as I hope this helps.
The following info is fairly comprehensive and can be found at:
The until-now most recent version of the HDMI specification was version 1.4. It specified a number of things, like 4,096×2,160-pixel resolution up to 24 frames per second, or 3,820×2,160 up to 30fps. If you’ve bought any gear with an HDMI connector in the past few years, it’s probably version 1.4. It carried over all the features and support from previous versions, plus added 3D, Audio Return Channel, and so on.
2.0 for 4K
With the TV industry moving inexorably toward Ultra HD “4K,” it was clear there needed to be more bandwidth in the connection to handle the future’s higher resolutions and frame rates. On that front, HDMI 2.0 delivers, supporting “4K” (2160p by the Forum’s explanation) up to 60fps. This allows for full-resolution 4K 3D, along with higher-frame-rate 2D content, like (potentially) home videos and computer games (PC, not PS4/Xbox One). Since almost all movies are shot at 24fps, this increase is less important for feature films or scripted TV shows.
All about the bandwidth
The most important thing to understand about HDMI 2.0 is the increase of the size of the “pipe” transmitting data from the source (like a future native 4K Blu-ray player or PC) to display. This makes possible the increased frame rates at high resolutions. It also allows even more interesting lower-resolution images. For example, HDMI 2.0 supports dual video streams, so you can get two full HD shows on the same screen at the same time. Seem weird? Well, Samsung and LG already have versions of this either in current or future displays, like MultiView on Samsung’s KN55S9C OLED TV. So you can watch “Dancing with the Stars” reruns on Netflix while your spouse frags noobs in “Call of Duty 9.”
There’s also support for a 21:9 aspect ratio (basically 2.35:1), which is interesting, but not of much practical value yet. There are only a handful of native 21:9 displays (a few TVs like the discontinued Vizio CinemaWide, and some high-end projectors). Yes, many BD movies are 2.35:1, but these are really just 2.35 in a 1.78:1 window.

While it does not state “2.0” on the page, those specs alone qualify it to be a “2.0” cable. Differen’t manufacturers call cables differently. Some will say UHD, some high-speed, some 2.0 .. as long as they meet the 18Gbps and 4K 60hz .. they are 2.0.
must change your computer settings to default device
If your Mac has an HDMI port, this should work.
I would guess so… I got the 2-pack and I have 2 cables.
“HDMI 2.0b does not define new cables or new connectors. Current High Speed cables (Category 2 cables) are capable of carrying the increased bandwidth.”
That’s direct from the HDMI site.
If your Mac has a hdmi slot in it then it will if your Mac does not have a hdmi slot you will need to get a adapter
It’s a bit doubtful, but possibly you need a booster of some kind. A modern 25 ft run shouldn’t really need one, but with runs over 30 ft, they are recommended. It could be your dish receiver/box isn’t giving it enough oomph.
Maybe the earlier ones were 5/16″ but the one I just got is 3/8″ plus. It is a thick cable!
Info About Amazon Basics High-Speed HDMI Cable (18 Gbps, 4K/60Hz) – 6 Feet, Black (Reviews From Amazon)
I’m constantly telling people/family to stop buying cables from the box stores as they’re just too expensive, to stop wasting their money. As a former sales person of stereo equipment we were always told to “push new cables on new purchases”, and for good reason. I think the markup on cables and such might surpass jewelry!! It’s just horrible. So stop buying those overpriced cables and buy them here on Amazon, or at a couple of other online retailers, for much, MUCH less. They work just as well as the name brand cables, just without the fancy colors, or the fancy labels. But hey, if you’ve got one of those unlimited budgets and money is no object, then go ahead and buy that $100+ per foot, 4 gauge speaker cable, or other severely overpriced interconnects.
I am going to keep this review short and sweet. I saw many reviews referencing these cables not being able to handle 4K HDR or support 4:4:4 chroma at 60Hz. While I cannot speak for the configurations of other users, I can confirm the following:
Using this cable on a Samsung KS8500, I can confirm that this cable supports:
UHD 4K HDR Content
4K 30Hz 4:4:4
4K 60Hz 4:4:4
I am attaching a picture of the chroma test as well. The bottom two lines are perfectly visible using this cable.
Amazing cables at an affordable price. Tested with 4K HDR and Dolby Vision. Works with Apple TV too. I have this HDMI cable going from my Denon AV receiver to my LG OLED TV and all my devices hooked to my AV receiver using this HDMI cable as well. Everything works great. Don’t listen to the reviews that said Dolby Vision doesn’t work on the Apple TV. They probably didn’t set up their AV receiver and TV settings properly. The TV and the AV receiver has a setting that is listed as HDMI Deep Color or HDMI Enhanced that you will need to enable for HDR and Dolby Vision. Also it is prefered to set up the match settings under the video settings for the Apple TV.
The media could not be loaded. I went through 3 other HDMI cables before finally just deciding to buy this one, All other 3 cables I used previously were all from other highly rated brands here on Amazon, all them claimed to support HDMI 2.0 4K @60Hz. And you can guess those claims fell flat and they did not work whatsoever, Most of those other cables would have no image to the TV when selecting HDMI 2.0 mode and also there was horrendous screen tearing eve though v-sync was enabled in the games I was playing on my PC.
Well I am happy to report this is the very first cable I got that finally works as advertised. It can fully transmit a 4K 60Hz image over a 25 foot cable with no signal loss whatsoever. It even fully supports chroma 4:4:4 like a charm. This cable is an absolute beast and I cant believe how cheap it is. The other cables I got that didnt work were all over $60 and this $12 Amazon cable beats it in every way, I am a true believer in the Amazon basics brand for life now.
This cable is also twice as thick as any of the other HDMI cables I have and that just goes to show the great build quality, Its not a downside in any way, I just put the cable up on the wall across some nails and held up no problem.
bottom line if your looking for a great quality HDMI cable to stream games from your PC to your TV then get this cable! I am a very technical person when it comes to this stuff, this cable has it all, Full support for every chroma color mode and full fledged 4K @60Hz. Ive noticed across the internet about people complaining of weird screen tearing when using HDMI cables to their TV’s from their PC’s and I was also having this issue with all of the other cables too. This Amazon cable does not have this issue. Gaming from my PC to my TV is finally a fully enjoyable experience.
Final rating: 10/10 would buy again, no questions asked!!!
Please do not waste your hard earned money on overpriced HDMI cables in the name of picture or sound improvements. I currently am using these AmazonBasics High-Speed HDMI cables to connect our Yamaha v379 AV receiver to other HDMI enabled devices that link back to our 4K Samsung Smart TV and these have performed flawlessly.
HDMI cables come in four types: Standard-speed –> Standard-speed with Ethernet –> High-speed –> High-speed with Ethernet. Since High-speed cables are so cheap (e.g these AmazonBasics cables), there really isn’t any point of getting Standard-speed anymore. On the other hand, as most HDMI devices today can’t receive Ethernet over HDMI, High-speed HDMI cables are really all you need.
** Some numbers **
Standard-speed HDMI cables are rated up to 1080i (“i” stands for interlaced). In order for a HDMI cable to have a “High-speed” moniker, it must be capable of showing resolutions up to 4K –> 3840 x 2160 at 30fps (or 4,096 x 2160 at 24fps). And as the highest resolution any 4K TV currently on the market can produce is 3840 x 2160 at 30fps, even if you found a $100 cable at your local BestBuy that claims it can transmit much more than that, it doesn’t matter as you are limited by your source (i.e your cable box, Xbox, PS4 e.t.c) and your TV’s hardware capabilities.
Also HDMI cables can either produce an image/sound or nothing at all. There is NO in between. Therefore, a HDMI cable will either work or won’t work (it may show a flashing image but this means it’s a bad cable). But a more expensive HDMI cable will NOT show darker blacks and sharper colors than a less expensive HDMI cable. You either get 100% of the signal or no signal at all. Now if you intend on running your HDMI cable for more than 50ft, then you might want to invest in a HDMI cable that has “active” chips that help maintain the signal quality over a longer distance (but does NOT make the image/sound any better than the source).
** What about HDMI 1.4 or 2.0 or HDCP 2.2? **
This is another common misconception due to manufacturer marketing. HDMI 1.4, 2.0 and HDCP 2.2 are all hardware changes that do NOT require a cable change! Although there is a difference between them (you can google that yourself), there is no such thing as a HDMI 1.4 or 2.0 or HDCP 2.2 cable! The version numbers refer to the devices that the HDMI cable connects into & NOT the cable itself. The cable simply is a pipeline linking the two. Hence, if you do happen to own a TV and another device that both have HDMI 2.0 ports, any AmazonBasics High-speed rated cable will work perfectly fine with it.
** Conclusion **
At this price point, there is very little reason to spend more money on more expensive HDMI cables over these AmazonBasics High-speed cables. If you have a 3D, 4K, HDCP 2.2 or HDMI-ARC compatible device, these High-speed cables will work perfectly fine for you.
I just bought a very nice Sony 4k television from Best Buy in Alpharetta, Ga. I bought a stand, 4k DVD player, Marantz amplifier and two HMDI 2.2 cables from the Magnolia side of the store. When i looked at my receipt later, I was amazed to see that I had paid $130 for an 8 foot HMDI cable and $100 for a 6 footer- plus 7.5% tax. The cables had silver wire in them and were supposed to deliver great sound. I have excellent hearing, and the sound quality of these inexpensive cables is almost the same. Most people would never know the difference. Satisfied? You Betcha! I returned the expensive cables and walked out with the $246 I had paid Best Buy. 3 of these cost about $12.
Working as intended. ran it around the baseboards across the room. Did this so i can have my tower by me but the t.v. on the other side without having a cable to trip over. More then enough length. Cable was stiff at first from being so thick and wound so tight. it didn’t seem to do any damage though and works very well, sound and video is crisp and clear.
I order items with my own money I earn with my own work and time. I expect the products I buy to be worth my time and money. All items are judged on the product itself, and not any issues that arise because of myself or the shipper (unless clearly a packaging problem). I strive to give my unbiased and complete review to best help others make a choice on what to spend their valuable money on. Any Questions- Please do not hesitate to ask!
SO long. I never thought about how long 25 ft really was until I had it laid out in my living room! Great cable though, no issues whatsoever ever! The only concern I really have is that the cable cord is thick, a lot thicker than your standard HDMI cable. So for planning purposes this is important to note. I mounted my TV on my wall and used to cord/cable covers to maintain the wires. I was barely able to fit the TV power cable and the HDMI cord in the cover but I got it eventually. The cable works great just understand 25 ft is A LOT of cable and the cable runs a little thicker than your typical HDMI.
Purchased these to use with the apple lightening adaptor to connect the hubby’ iPad to the tv. He wanted the capability to watch Amazon, Netflix and other videos on his not smart tv and this cord and the adaptor worked perfectly. Videos loaded immediately -much quicker than through the wifi connected blue ray player. All we had to do was connect everything, turn o. The tv and select the source and we were up and running. We connected the iPad to the smart tv in the living room and enjoyed watching a movie on the larger screen. Can’t beat the price for the twin pack. I have the 2nd one plugged into the living room tv so we can quickly connect the iPad. The 10′ cable ended up being a little too short to be permanently attached to the bedroom tv – the cord was out in the open for the cat to play with. I remedied that by ordering the 15′ cable which I received today. Hooked it up and it is out of the way! I highly recommend these cables. They work perfectly and you can’t beat the price.
Ordered a 25′ cable to connect a PC with an NVIDIA GTX 780 to a TCL 65″ 4K TV. Works great, but the plastic shield at the connector is a little on the wide side, so it *almost* didn’t fit snugly into my graphics card because the metal slot is just slightly more narrow than the width of the connector. The cable itself is also incredibly thick, even thicker than standard coaxial, which I was not expecting. Not a huge deal because it makes me feel like it’s much more durable than competitor’s cables and it isn’t too stiff so cable management is still a breeze, but the standard sized cable clips I got to run this along the baseboard were much too small so now I have to measure the diameter and get something a bit more specialized to make everything look nice and neat. No complaints on video or sound quality. Functions as expected. Great price. Would buy again.
In conclusion, Amazon’s cheap cables are reliable and great. The Amazon Basics High-Speed HDMI Cable is Amazon’s basic cable, with a standard HDMI connector on one end and a micro HDMI on the other (the micro HDMI is used on newer HD TVs). The Amazon Basics High-Speed HDMI Cable has a solid cable construction. To protect the cable from damage, it is encased in a braided nylon sleeve. The Amazon Basics High-Speed HDMI Cable is an AmazonBasics product, so you know you’re getting a quality product at a great price.
