The only difference between cheap and expensive HDMI cables is the signal quality over longer distances. The more expensive cables use lower-resistance materials like gold contants and oxygen-free copper and add EMI shielding but this is completely unnecessary for cable lengths under about 10 feet - even the cheapest $1 made-in-china bundled freebie cables are adequate for short distances.
If you're buying a 25-foot cable or longer, the more expensive cables are worth considering if you'll be running near lots of other sources of interference, but since they're so needlessly overpriced, it's still often worth just trying a cheap cable first.
This is my signature. There are many like it, but this one is mine. However, my signature is neither my best friend, nor is it my life. I also have no desire to master it and my worth is not signature-dependent.
