The AmazonBasics High-Speed HDMI Cable with Ethernet is part of the AmazonBasics range which offers quality Amazon branded products at low prices. In this case, it is a versatile (10 foot) cable which can be used to connect up your own home entertainment theater solution. This cable is also available in 3, 6, 15, and 25 foot lengths.
HDMI cables stream both audio and video in high-definition quality for games, movies and TV. I wasn’t expecting much from this cable, but came away impressed with the quality of the cable, as well as the excellent audio and visual results.
HDMI cables can be used to connect an HDTV to a cable box, satellite dish, Blu-ray player, game console and any other item which has an HDMI connection and enables you to experience quality video and audio from your home theater. The cable will also allow you to share one Internet connection among multiple devices, meaning you don’t need a separate Ethernet cable. It also supports 3D, 4K and audio return functionality.

If you haven’t used an HDMI cable before and HDTV is also a new experience, this cable will connect a cable box, DVD, Blu Ray disc player, computer, game consoles, Fire TV, Apple TV, sound system and anything else which has an HDMI cable connector. A separate audio cable for each item is not necessary as this cable streams audio and video. It’s a good idea to purchase an extra cable for each separate HDMI device so that it is not necessary to remove the Blu-ray cable to plug the gaming console, for example.
