Exclamation [PSA] Practically Free HDMI Cable

Price has since gone up... thread closed...
Public service announcement:

Gold Plated HDMI to HDMI Mini cable, 2 M / 6.56 FT for $0.03 + shipping.

http://www.amazon.com/Gold-Plated-HD...dp/B00104XCVO/

I have no relationship with the seller and can't even buy one myself because I'm not in the US...

Whoa thats way over priced just kidden, jeedh makes ya wonder how a place like bestbuy can get away with selling a cheaper version of the same cable but for 30 to 50 bucks! Makes me absolutely sick. Great find thanks a lot. Now find us a tablet for 10 bucks

Only problem with this deal...

The Transformer Prime uses a MICRO-HDMI cable. Not Mini-HDMI.

$0.19+$2.85(P&H) Six Foot Micro-HDMI to HDMI Cable

Still can go for this instead:

Micro HDMI 3 ft for $.01

or this

6.5 Ft micro HDMI fo $.01

The catch.... about $3.00 shipping and handling. Looks like there is a price war going on at Amazon with third party vendors, charging only a penny, but then upping the "shipping and handling". Most are from Hong Kong companies, but some ship from US if thats where you are located.

Asus Transformer T201 w/ Dock.

I would personally rather spend $10 on this 10-Foot Micro-HDMI cable from Newegg.

This way I actually have someone that can be held responsible if the cable doesn't work.

I use a micro-hdmi cable that I bought from ebay for around $3 for my evo 4g that works great. There's no point in spending extra money when it's cable that either works or does not.

I always seem to forget about monoprice for some reason. Just got their 15 foot cable with ferrite choke for like $11 after s & h. That's only seventy cents a foot and from a respectable online website.
