Upgrading your HDMI cables when upgrading to 3D
10 Dec 2011 21:26:25
If you’ve made the leap to 3D recently by purchasing a 3D-enabled TV set, you may need to upgrade your HDMI cables.
The first thing to do to found out whether you need to buy a new HDMI cable is to test out your existing one with your new 3D TV. If it works, you may think you don’t need to upgrade, but this isn’t always the case.
Many people who buy 3D TVs continue using the same HDMI cables as they used with their standard digital and HD TV sets. However, these people could be missing out the superior quality of 3D images their new device is capable of producing, simply because they are using the wrong cable.
By buying a better quality, faster HDMI cable, or a newer version, you can be assured that you are getting the very best your 3D TV has to offer. These devices can also be very expensive, so you want to ensure you are getting the best value for money and making the best use of the technology available.
High-speed HDMI 1.4 cables with Ethernet are virtually made for 3D enabled TVs and other devices, so these may be the best product to buy.
