    Hey guys,

    I recently bought a samsung lcd 32' HDTV
    I was wondering about a couple of things

    1- whats the best HDMI cable available at deal extreme? I dont get the whole model 1.3, 1.3a and 1.3b .. can anyone refer me to the best one there?
    2- Whats the best VGA cable (I want to connect my laptop to the tv .. so I'm guessing I need vga M to M) .. can anyone refer me to that as well?

    Appreciate any help I would get

    Thanks

    Cable is cable. Go for the cheapest one.

    Well the one you linked to looks more heavy weight so if you want to spend the extra money go for it.

    Pizzaroo,
    as far as I know, there are some differences. For VGA cables I heard that some do not work with lcd screens (something related to the number of pins)
    for HDMI, apparently there are software types? (1.3, 1.3a, 1.3b) but I dont get what they mean.

    So yeah I had to ask .. =)

    Linkiboy, thanks I'll either buy the one you linked, or both

    While we're at it, what cable can I use to get sound from TV instead of PC.
    I know VGA only gets picture to TV and I need another audio cable..

    Can anyone link me to a good one?

    cheap cables can cause problems, at least with analogue signals. I would never advocate buying overpriced audiophool cables, but its probably best to buy ones with screw connectors that are gold plated.
