    Apple HDMI

    • Written by from Jackson

    I had purchased some HDMI cables at Radio Shack in the Fall and haven't really been pleased with them since. I didn't know Apple manufactured HDMI cables until I noticed them browsing the Apple retail store. I purchased two; came home and swapped out the two I bought at Radio Shack. I have one running to my Motorola DVR, and one running to my Apple TV. Both work great and have had no issues with either of them, & 1080p looks amazing.

    good light weight cable

    • Written by from San Diego

    My other larger & heavier HDMI cables were actually lifting/titling the Apple TV2 off my table, so this is why I purchased Apple's cable.

    I also an annoyed that it does not list which HDMI spec/version it is, but I plugged it into my PS3 and played a Blu-ray title and it pumped out 1080p just fine.

    The cable may look thin & flimsy but it actually has a nice wrapping around it, such that it doesn't feel like it will snap anytime soon

    I have had my other HDMI cable and ATV2 say to me 3 times, that the HDCP link was not supported, but this was when I was switching inputs rapidly on the remote, so I think its more of a firmware issue with the "handshake" that goes on with respect to the TV and software. I simply tried again and all was fine. I have not had the handshake issue with the this HDMI cable.

    This is all the info I can tell you.

    So...it's an expensive HDMI cable

    • Written by from Victoria

    Usually, I would recommend that people buy Apple accessories for their Apple devices to ensure the best compatibility; however, this is just a standard HDMI cable, there is nothing at all special or unique to Apple about it, save for the fact that it's a little overpriced. My recommendation: save your money and find one somewhere else for roughly half the price.

    Complete Waste of Money; Does Not Work

    • Written by from Washington

    This deserves zero stars. The flimsy, overpriced cable I purchased from an Apple store does not work at all. I tried it on several televisions, several devices. Nothing. Another HDMI cable from a different company worked just fine on all the same televisions and devices. So they can't blame user error. This is a poorly made product.

    Do not waste your money buying this cable........

    • Written by from Mississauga

    This cable is a piece of junk! I recently bought a new apple TV to go with my new 37" LG HDTV so that I could rent movies and use my Netflix service but this cable does not work. You have to constantly plug and unplug it to try to get it to work. You are better off buying a good quality HDMI cable from an electronic store. Unfortunately, I can't find my bill so I just wasted $ 19.99 plus tax on this item.

    Possible problems for streaming from Netflex

    • Written by from Greensboro

    I used this HDMI cable ($19.00) for several months. However, while the picture was good enough for me, sound was OK also, the problem I kept having was frequent stops in reception, having to wait until data got through, and very often getting the message that I wasn't connected and should check my external connections. In response I went to the TV and either jiggled the HDMI cable or unplugged it and re-plugged it in order to get a movie started again. Was it Netflex's problem, or apple TV, or the HDMI cable. I went to Best Buy and bought a Monster HDMI cable and have had no streaming problems since. 'Nuff said!

    Awesome Cable for a great price!!

    • Written by from chibougamau

    I've had this cable wired from my blu ray player to my HDTV, for about two weeks now, and it works just great. It's not bulky, just the right length and the quality of the image is amazing, what more to ask from a HDMI cable??!! I haven't had any problems with it, you've just got to love Apple products!! ♥

    Amazing quality!

    • Written by from San Angelo

    I recently received Apple TV for Christmas and my mom was kind enough to buy the Apple HDMI cable to go along with it. Not only was it super easy and fast to hook up, the picture has been amazing! I have watched purchased movies and rented movies from iTunes and it has been as clear as the two expensive HDMI cables that I bought with my other electronics.

    I will probably buy a few of these to replace the other ones because it really is that great! Less bulk, better picture....can't ask for more!

    Does not support HDCP

    • Written by from Oak Park

    It is disappointing that Apple sells a cable that is not HDCP-compliant and is thus incompatible with content on Netflix. I purchased this cable with an Apple TV and it does not work for HDCP content.

    Cheap Cable. No "Magic"

    • Written by from Ithaca

    I recently spent $209 on a 2-ft long Monster cable, and I can tell you first hand that the picture quality is MUCH, MUCH better on the Monster. The colors are brighter, the contrast is breathtaking, and there's a "magic" there that I can't put my finger on that just doesn't happen with the Apple HDMI cable. This Apple cable takes the fun out of watching a masterpiece like "Dude, Where's My Car?" and more importantly, takes the sharpness out of its beautiful visual effects. What's more, ever since I connected this cable, Netflix has been recommending Matthew McConaughey movies for me, which is downright insulting.

    Besides, the magneto-crystal impedance filter on my Monster cables removes all "noise" from the digital signal. The Gold-infused tri-coil voltammetric swing system in the HDMI adapter is also useful for guaranteeing the best quality picture.

    Just kidding, this cable is worth every cent. And if $20 is too much, there are alternatives online for a fraction of the price that perform just as well.

    Money well spent

    • Written by from Calgary

    I recently spent $80 for a 1.8m HDMI cable from Best Buy. Then bought this Apple HDMI cable for $19 and found it to be as good (if not better). Everything works perfectly...HD television, DVD player and Apple TV. I wasted $60 more at Best Buy!!

    Well done Apple for another good product.

    Great HDMI Cable for the Cost!

    • Written by

    I bought Apple TV for my parents since they are addicted to Netflix. Now they have the opportunity to watch it straight to their TV in High Definition. I used to work for a cable company and knew how expensive these cables can run for the quality they provide. I was shocked to see how small this was and how cheap it was. After setting up the Apple TV and running some movies from Netflix the HD was pretty incredible on at 55inch TV. The HD looked just about the same or even a little better then HD channels they would get through their cable provider. I am very happy the sales associate in the store recommended this cable even though it was the cheapest in there, he didnt have to cheat me into a more expensive one, which they had many other cables that were expensive there. Well worth it.

    Great Cable at a Great Price

    • Written by from Winnipeg

    Great product. Works flawlessly with my Apple TV serving all content types. Low cost with no apparent downside. Does not follow the hype that all hdmi cables must be thick and expensive. Good job Apple - someone needs to send these accessory cable companies a message...

    Not HDCP compliant

    Very disappointing, as this disables Netflix and certain Video Podcasts (e.g. TED talks) via Apple TV.
