Best 3d HDMi cables for your TV

Updated on December 29, 2011

3d HDMI cable choices

HDMI - High Definition Multi Media Interface

The cabling one uses for their High Definition devices does wonders for taking advantage of the abilities of their 3D television or even just HD 1080 TV. Many get their first advanced HD ready TV and are disappointed when they first set up their cable box or existing DVD player. It doesnt seem that different? ( Dont laugh, I get these phone calls rather often!)

The HDMI protocol is agreed upon and tested by the majority of the major technology producers in the effected fields - Hitachi, Panasonic, RCA, Sony, Phillips and Toshiba were all active in the original creation of the standard.

The HDMI standard was recently updated to 1.4 in order to keep up and stay feasible as the best standard for use with 3d television and gaming

3D Hdmi cables - HDMI 1.4


Category 2 - 3d HDMI cables

HDMI cables are further defined as Category 1 and Category 2, Category 2 can be sold as High Speed HDMI cables.

For the purpose of true 1080p display on your 3D device it is suggested to pay a few extra bucks for Category 2 or High Speed cables, especially if your looking for a longer cord which may otherwise lose signal quality at longer lengths.

Using a longer cable can allow you to place devices like gaming systems and dvd players next to your viewing location rather than near the tv. This can be rather convenient.

Below you will find the top options in 3d hdmi cables arranged by length. 

Category 2 3D Hdmi Cables

If your planning on having your media devices all in one unit, a 50 foot hdmi cable will only lead to clutter. This selection of medium sized HDMi cables are all under 10 feet. At this size, it is affordable to get the best and most full featured cords i.e. gold plated etc.

Short 3D Hdmi cables

In order to keep clutter and tangles to a minimum, particularly if you are using multiple hdmi devices, it is wise to use the shortest cables whenever feasible. These 3 ft hdmi cables will do the job with less extra cord to fuss about.

While your looking around you may want to check out a couple of cable management systems too.
