About this deal

Many people are wondering what HDMI cable comes with PS4 and PS5 consoles. It’s hard to determine because the cables are usually sold separately. Ideally, I'd go for the 18.2Gbps cables from Monoprice, but importing those from the US is just a bit too expensive. Incidentally, the plugs on my HomeTheater cables, as well as the old version of the PureLink cable and the inakustik and Deltaco remind me a lot of the ones used on the Monoprice cables, which leads me to believe that they're all manufactured at the same factory. I might be wrong about that, though.

Ultra Slim HDMI Cables - Cabledepot

None of the cables you mentioned or linked too are certified active cables as none have their own power supply.Using active electronics to boost and clean up the signal can effectively double the range of a standard twisted-copper HDMI cable. Cable runs of up to 30 meters are the norm for this type of solution, which may be deployed as either a standalone signal management device, i.e., a repeater or booster box, or incorporated into the manufacture of the cable itself. Boxes are available in many configurations, usually incorporating both booster and equalization functions, and may also serve as repeaters or switchers. Active cables, on the other hand, embed the signal-enhancement electronics in the cable itself, with chips embedded in the connector housings. They are unidirectional, using different modules at the transmit and receive ends of the cable. All the technologies in this category require external power. This new video-output protocol was named HDMI 2.0, and it’s only now emerging as one of the most exciting innovations in consumer electronics. It also includes a peripheral data transfer of 48Gbps to have high-resolution visuals without any lag.

Ultra Slim 3m HDMI Cable - Thin Cable Smaller HDMI Plugs

My problem is that I'm space constrained (well, depth constrained, actually) with regard to the receiver, so I'm looking for a flexible cable with a short plug. For my other gear I've been using these 2 metre ultra slim cables from HomeTheater. Sadly, not only are they no longer available, but I never managed to find one at 3 metres.To help you navigate the HDMI waters, here's everything you should know about them, including what the different types mean, what different brands are available, and how concerned you should be about getting the most out of your TV. High Speed is over twice as fast as Standard, with a minimum bandwidth of 10.2Gbps. The vast majority of new HDMI cables you shop for will be High Speed or above, which means they can carry a 4K signal. The hitch is that the bandwidth will support only 4K video at 24 frames per second. That's fine if you want to watch movies on Ultra HD Blu-ray, but if you are streaming TV shows or have gaming hardware that can push 4K at 30 or 60 frames per second, it won't be sufficient. High Speed HDMI cables do, however, support HDR and wide color gamuts. To sum it all up my questions are: Would it be wise to go for a RedMere enabled active cable or would a passive 3 metre cable suffice or even be preferable? If RedMere is the way to go, would it not be wisest to go with the cable from inakustik using the latest chip (which, of course, also is the most expensive one)?
