It's Fifty-Nine CENTS at monoprice. ??? Is there like a $9.99 shipping and handling fee or what? lol.
Well yeah if you're ordering just a couple of cables, the shipping will end up costing you several times the price of the cables. I tend to place larger orders and stock up; last time I ordered from them it was a big pile of Ethernet and audio cables (about $40 worth), and the shipping was around $8.
only thing that's a little weird - unless I'm overlooking it - there's no brand? Not that I really care...so long as they work...
I believe they make their own cables (probably in some Chinese sweatshop, and then ship 'em here by the boatload). They come in plastic bags (so you're not paying for fancy packaging either).
In any case thank you very much for this - I never would've trusted these prices (or this site) but if you're happy with them that's good enough for me.
I've never had a problem with any of their cables, quality seems to be on par with the name brand stuff. Some of the electronics
they sell can be a little dodgy, but it's so stupid cheap that an occasional dud doesn't particularly bother me.
