    Redoing living room and want to run some cabling under the floor for media devices.
    Any advice on which HDMI 2.0 cable I should go for? Any difference in specs I should be aware of?

    Currently looking at multitudes on ebay and can’t decide if the difference between 15.8gb and 17.8gb would ever make any difference in reality. Going to run a 4k tv and upscaling dvd etc.

    just buy 4k suitable leads, but do not pay more the £1 per metre.

    Amazon Basics.

    HDMI cables are HDMI cables, so long at it’s a Cat2 “high-speed” cable they’re all the same beyond build quality.

    Great article. Cheers for that. I wasn’t in the market for Byton mega expensive anyway but the price difference is staggering if you look around!

    I’ve just went through the same thing. Ended up with an Akord one from Amazon, works fine so far but just futureproofing at the minute as its really just for 4K @ 60fps and it’ll be a while before I bother to get a 4k player.

    Amazon basics are good quality but ton probably pays tax.
    Take your pic!

    You need these for an immersive experience

    Seriously though, as others said, cheap. I prefer braided as it seems to last longer before the outside degrades. That may not be necessary for under-floor routing where I guess it won’t get any / as much abrasion.

    They’re AV cables, how on earth are you managing to abrade them?

    Not all HDMI cables are the same. Most made now are v1.4, but be careful they are not v1 (cheap eBay ones can be) as they do not support Ethernet or 4K.

    As said above “High Speed” Cable is what you want, which is a v1.4a cable. Amazon Basics are good quality cables.
