Its easy to believe it. Monster and other cable makers have the most grotesque profit margins on Earth. Monoprice is just making a decent buck for a damn good product.

Component doesn't allow for HDCP. You'll need that to see BluRay in high def.

I looked at Monoprice but couldnt get the website to work a couple days ago so I just hit up the web and found a company selling 6' HDMI cables for cheap. I bought 3 6 foot HDMI cables for 15 bucks shipped. Hopefully they will be decent quality.

Be sure to let us know. Also, let everyone know where you go them. Monoprice is pretty kickass but its aways good to know other sources.
