I just wanted to give you a heads- up that I will finally be posting the finale of our HDMI Cable Battlemodo today at 2 p.m. EST. Before you see the results, though, I wanted to take you through the testing process, so the results will make total sense. You with me?
As you will recall, our previous test took place at Monster Headquarters. We brought Monoprice cables ranging from 6 feet to 50 feet, and pitted them against Monster cables using Monster's in-house testing system. A pulse pattern generator simulating real-world and futuristic TV signals sent bits through the cables to a digital serial analyzer. If the lines of 1s and 0s were clearly defined, the cable was good; if the lines grew too fuzzy, the cable's quality was deemed poor.
