Just got a 3 in, 1 out HDMI switch and two 3' HDMI 1.3 cables.

Really nice stuff. Works great. Value $49 US. Paid no duty or taxes.

Monoprice's products are so reasonably priced that I can get whatever cable I need for less than $10 including shipping.

Another satisfied customer. 9 business days to receive an 1 x HDMI, 2 x Toslink and 1 2x1 Toslink splitter all for $15 bucks. No duties. Equivalent products here would have cost $70+.

Hey,

I placed my order on Dec.24/07. $120 order, and paid $12.96 for duty. Got my Oder on Jan.8/08

I got everything I ordered. Quality is very good. Way better than my Wal-Mart cables.

Ordered:
1 25' CL2 Rated HDMI 1.3a
2 3' HDMI 1.3a
2 3' Toslink Cables
1 25' CL2 Rated RCA Cable
1 35' CL2 Rated SVGA Cable
2 Low Voltage Wall Plates


I am very pleased and will be doing another order soon.

Just have to wait for my home theater to be complete before testing some of the cabels, this was the order for all my inwall cables.

thanks

I've ordered from Monoprice 3 times in the last 2 months.

Had no problems, great products, great service.


I would never buy cables from a brick store again!


cheers

I've placed for order so far all prices have shipping included:
1. 4 6' HDMI cables $28
2. 1 3' and 1 6' toslink $16 nice and thick with metal braiding
3. Wii component cable $8
4. Wii rechargable battery packs with charger $20

still waiting on 4 but on average it took about 7-9 days to get to Toronto.

they all work great.

As long as your not in a rush you can't beat these prices. I don't think I'll ever shop retail again when it comes to cables.

Very satisfied

I followed the advice on this board and went off to monoprice.com to order all my cables for my new amp, tv, dvd and cable box. Total order was for $110 + $40 (EMS Express shipping) came to approx $150 total. I suppose because it was a large(r) order, I got dinged with $22.19 in duty, however under $175 for about 8 different cables + 100' speaker wire beats the pants off most brick stores. Ordered on Jan 16, reached Mississauga Jan 23.

Very satisfied, highly recommended. My only gripe would be that the premium HDMI cables I ordered, while very well built, appear to be fairly heavy with the nylon casing, and as a result when plugged into the back of my LCD, tend to slant down in the connector due to the weight. I'm concerned an awkward pull of the cable might render the TV HDMI connector useless, however it seems to be okay for now. Needless to say, all the cables are top-notch quality.

Thumbs up

Bought an Optical Toslink to Coaxial (RCA) Digital Audio Converter for $15.30 (which is a steal from The Source's $50 price) but it took almost 3.5 weeks to get delivered to Northern AB. Lucky thing I wasn't in a hurry for it.

Great prices, unit works great and good communication from Monoprice..Thumbs up and hopefully next time shipping speed will improve

Ordered 10ft HDMI cable for $4.00 and 6ft optical toslink cable for $3.00, total with shipping came to $13. I was not charged any duty/taxes. This was my first time ordering from Monoprice. Ordered May 07 and arrived May 23. Cables seem to be about the same quality as the stuff I can get from my local computer store. Overall, a very smooth transaction. I will probably order from them again.

Just ordered two 6' HDMI cables and a USB to serial converter, not only were they very well priced on both items (on the usb to serial cable they were $15 less than anyone else), their shipping rates were exactly what you'd call "reasonable" - shipping seems to be where most retailers would try to compensate for their low prices.

Very satisfied!

Just received a 1.5 ft. optical cable and the optical cable switch (3 in 1). Paid $10 for both items and $4 for shipping. Took about a week to get here (Newfoundland). Great price and great shipping.
