I am looking for a HDMI cable around 10m. Anybody know of places that sell them for a reasonable price? Best I have seen is at Cablesdirect where they are $76+GST. I can get them cheaper in the US (have a friend who can mail it out to me)

Thanks

Take care, some 10M cables may only be 1.1 or 1.2 many sell the older versions off cheap, you just dont know.

Some really cheap ones fail after or before 12mnths, thats not what you want inside your walls.

Some wont support the higher bandwidth for Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio, some will NOT display 1080p. 

Buy really cheap, get ready for disaster with a long run HDMI cable, I know!

I know some guys have had good service from RapolloAV but some of their products can be had for a third of the price from www.monoprice.com.

You have to take shipping into account though so it would be best to order several cables/items at once.
