Sorry this might a silly question but are HDMI cables all pretty similar ? I need to buy a couple so Im hoping that they are all the same !

I use both expensive and cheap HDMI cables now and, whilst I did perform a comparison in the past and noticed improvements with the more expensive cables, I do now recognise that those differences were certainly minor and are never going to improve a bad picture / sound and make it amazing so it really isn't worth taking too much time to worry about it.
Yes, all essentially the same.

Should any company claiming that their maga expensive HDMI cable to be superior now be taken to court over faulse claims given that we now live in a 'blame society' ?

Considering that it's been scientifically proven beyond all reasonable doubt that any properly functioning HDMI cable will have exactly the same performance as all other HDMI cables. It's surprising that nobody has ever taken one of the overpriced cable manufacturers to court for false advertising.
maga expensive HDMI cable
Another vote for Amazon Basics here. Well made, latest spec, much cheapness.
A lot of these differences are subjective opinions which cannot be challenged in the courts. The courts are aware that some claim to see differences, while some do not. So they don't interfere.
Do it then.

With the recent tests which show that the data is identical from different cables, I'd say that's grounds for a case. I'd wager some internet warrior will bring a case sooner or later. Doesn't Max have form with this sort of stuff?
THis has already been posted by another member, but just in case you missed it. Link: http://www.expertreviews.co.uk/home-entertainment/1292371/expensive-hdmi...
I couldn't be botherd doing it myself but I expect that someone probably will sooner or later. It would be nice if they set a precedent.
