If you want a performance-facing product at a great price-per-cable, the Cable Matters 8K HDMI 2.1 cable (3-pack) is an easy pick for the top choice. With this product, you’re getting three color-coded HDMI cables (red, yellow, and blue) with full HDMI 2.1 functionality.
Testing revealed full 48Mbps capability here, meaning you’ll be able to use these for your next-gen HDMI needs like Variable Refresh Rate, 8K resolution, 4K at 120fps, and so on. And getting three of them at once makes for a great value: unless you’re a serious AV nut, you probably won’t need more than three 2.1-compatible cables anyway. Finally, the color coding—while it serves no practical purpose, as each cable is functionally identical—is a nice touch if only for aesthetic purposes (not to mention, they might just help you remember what's plugged into what).
The only downside to these cables, if we had to point one out, is that they’re not super tough. Having used Cable Matters products before, we’ve never had an issue with the reinforcement or flexibility of this design, but it’s worth noting that you’re not getting the braided wrapping or extra reinforcement you’ll get on some other cables. However, the more basic design here is one reason this 3-pack presents such a solid value, and if you’re careful you should have no problem making these last a good while.
