Was Jefferson right? Are all HMDI cables created equal?

Its mainly about profit.
For example the monster cable that goes for we'll say 150$ retail at the major stores, the amount the store buys it from (just knowledge from one of the big box stores i bought it from) would be we'll say 50$. They make a massive mark up on these things, on accesories since they are not making their money on the base products anymore. A lot of TVs you buy these days the store you're buying it from is making 100-200$ (higher on new technology) and in order for them to turn the profits they want/are looking for they have to sell you the accessories for a jacked up price. Another example are those stage 1 dynex/monster power filter surge protector. They retail 130-140$. I was able to get it on staff for about 15$ including tax.
