Have LG OLED? Don’t buy these.
Reviewed in the United States on June 24, 2018
I wanted some flat HDMI cables for an in-wall installation of a new LG OLED55C7P unit and these seemed to fit the bill. Soon after I installed them, I noticed that the TV would drop the signal from my Apple TV 4K. Right before it dropped, I got a split second of multi-colored snow. Unplugging the HDMI cable seemed to fix it...for a little while.
I tried a new Apple TV 4K and the same thing happened, so it likely wasn’t that. Then I tried a new cable from SyncWire that also had the required specs. Issue persisted, so I bugged LG about it. They sent a tech who replaced the main board of the TV. It took less than a day for the issue to pop up again and my blood began to boil :)
I begrudgingly went to Best Buy and paid $80 for an 8ft HDMI cable knowing I was being horribly gouged, but THAT cable worked. I asked about this on a forum online and folks there were adamant that Monoprice HDMI-certified cables were the way to go. At $10 each for a 10ft unit, I gave one a shot. After a week, the issue had not popped up and I very happily took the $80 cable back to Best Buy.
It would seem that getting a cable with the right specs SHOULD be fine, but that’s not been my experience. So, skip these flat pieces of garbage and just go with Monoprice HDMI-certified cables. Happy viewing!!
