I just bought a Samsung 55" curved tv at Best buy. The salesman said I needed 2 HDMI intra high speed cables at $59 each. Nowhere do I see I need these expensive cables. Yes the tv is 4K so I ordered 2 high speed hdmi cables instead and plan to take these Best Buy cables back. What do you think, do I need these expensive cables or get other high speed cables on the internet?
Moved to TV forum.
As I understand it, you ordered the other cables already.
I would try the new cables and if they work okay, return the BB ones, otherwise, return the new ones.

Thanks, I'm going to try the ones from internet and take back the BB Cables.
That's a good idea. If you are connecting video sources that will be 1080p or less (Blu-ray player, HD cable/sat box, etc.) then any decent quality HDMI cables will do a good job.
For 4K video sources (of which there are very few) you'll want HDMI 1.4 (30 fps) or HDMI 2.0 (60fps) certified cables.
Hope that helps.
Because my name is on the business, I work hard to make sure you get the best possible shopping experience. I look forward to hearing your comments .
