Works with 1080p, HDMI1.3a – HDMI-HDMI Premium Zinc Alloy Cable (1.8m Length) Reviews

Pros:
For others wondering about if this cable meets 1.3a spec. I've tried running 1080p@60 over this cable and it works perfectly. All 19 pins are connected, means CEC/DDC channels works. I don't have a deep color source to test the 1.5x (2.48GHz) speed which my display supports. I am overall impressed by the quality of this cable.
Cons:
No package, no spec, hard to image a superb cable like this come in a clear plastic bag.
Other:
I am glad that I didn't buy the $60 crap they sell in local shops that claim to be 1.3 compliant but bends like USB cable. This cable is thick, solid but still flexible. I wouldn't recommend sharp bending of HDMI cable because the 1.65GHz natural of TMDS anyway.
Bottomline:
Get this cable, at least it does what other cables claims to be capable of, and has better chance to go beyond that. If anyone tested it with 36/48 bits deep color, let me know.
