Not a bad cable, mine might be defective – HDMI M-M Connection Cable 1.8M Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
- cheap - good image quality
Cons:
- sound issues
Other:
First thing I noticed when opening the package was that one of the protective plastic caps was missing. I connected my laptop (Dell XPS m1330) to my LCD TV using the cable and everything seemed to be fine, except for the sound that keeps interrupting apparently at random. I have previously connected the laptop to the TV using a friend's HDMI cable and I have never had this issue.

Other than that the cable seems to be decently built.
Bottomline:
I might have just been unlucky by getting a defective cable, however the sound issues are clearly present. I'm probably going to buy a 40$ one from the store.
