There are a couple of Ecosse Picture Perfect HDMI cables, with this Ultra being the cheaper of the two.

Bright, punchy image
The look and feel might not be spectacular, but the Ultra serves up a bright, punchy image. Detail levels are up there with the best – the Ecosse does a great job of highlighting the detailing on the extravagant costumes in Sweeney Todd.

But it doesn't quite display the subtlety of the class leader, and there's a hint of hardness in the sound not present with the likes of the Chord HDMI Silver Plus 1.3.
