It’s all-change for the HDMI-P, in a hugely positive way. This is a great HDMI cable

Nothing at the price
The path of trying to fix a product when it isn't broken can be fraught with danger. What happens if said product takes a step backwards instead of forwards? What happens if your Award-winning pride and joy fails to recapture former glories?
Thankfully, QED doesn't have to worry about such problems.
It has managed to take its Award-winning, budget HDMI-P cable and make significant improvements. There's more copper, increasing the thickness for all cores and improving the connections between the now solid-purple cable and its new, plugs.
And it all combines to produce a cable that is undoubtedly superior to its predecessor. It produces an entertaining, colourful picture blessed with a large dose of detail. Images retain solidity in the face of tricky panning shots.

Treble is sweet with no hint of brightness. There's a real sense of heft and solidity in the lower frequencies that helps to emphasise the explosive action scenes of Casino Royale. Dialogue sounds clear and uncluttered, too. This is a superb upgrade.
