Default Coaxial connectors

I'm looking for coaxial connectors for my HDTV.
I like the F connectors but should I purchase gold plated?
Is it worth the extra dollars?

the typical "gold" plated ones are garbage you want to be looking at a name brand like Holland Electronics - Manufacturer of RF Products in CATV, Satellite, Fiber Optic, Wireless Markets with the blue insert, not clear or black.

Generally speaking clear or black inserts on the barrels are garbage. (now that doesn't prevent someone from coloring the dielectric blue to make a imitation but generally speaking). Almost all compression type fittings are made equal aslong as you terminate them correctly you shouldn't have an issue.
