The Aurum Long HDMI Cable is a very popular cable with many positive reviews from folks that have purchased this long HDMI cable. Being 50 feet in length, this is a great cable to use if your source audio/video is not near your display device. The cable is ideal for long runs between gaming consoles, computers, HD cable boxes and DVD/Blu-ray players, basically anything with an HDMI output.
Some customers have run this cable in and through walls, while the cable seems to work okay for that application, I haven’t found that this Aurum cable is rated for in-wall usage. This means the cable doesn’t meet the electrical code for in-wall or through wall installation and may void your homeowners insurance if there was fire damage to your home and the cable was found to be the culprit or contribute to the damage. If you need a cable you can run in or through a wall, Bluerigger manufactures several CL3 rated cables that can be found at the links below or Aurum makes a 75ft version that is CL2 rated for in-wall usage.

The Aurum cable is a very popular seller and there has been quite a lot of positive feedback from customers. Things they like about the cable include, no loss of signal for such a long cable, the tight connections made by the connectors, the braided cable jacket and of course the great price is always mentioned.
There were a few customers that had issues with the signal dropping and another not being able to display 3D movies. This could have been caused by the audio/video components not being powerful enough to drive the signal 50 feet. These were definitely in the minority and most customers have left nothing but glowing reviews. You can read the reviews here.
