Im looking for an HDMI cable (2m is fine) thats reasonably flexible - the current cable I have is quite thick and when its plugged into the PS3, I have to have the PS3 sticking out of the cabinet its in and cant close the door when Im done.... if I could find a cable that will bend a bit more closer to the plug, then thatd be better but the cables Ive see so far all seem to be rather thick and not willing to give way much...

Any suggestion for cable brands to look at ? :)

Have you thought of getting a right-angle HDMI cable?

something like:

The other alternative is to get a right angle adapter, which might save you a few dollars as you can continue to use your existing cable.

I'd get a right angle adaptor - you can find them in most retail electronics stores.
Beats buying another cable.

You can also get flat/ribbon type HDMI cables, which bend a lot more, but they aren't cheap.
