Gembird HDMI review

Cheap but the Gembird's only worth buying if you don't have a freebie cable already or if you need a longer length cable Tested at £1.92

Our Verdict

Cheap, but the Gembird's only worth buying if you don't have a freebie cable already or if you need a longer one

For

  • Useful length

Against

  • No better than a freebie cable

The Gembird HDMI cable is 1.8 metres long, which console gamers should find handy. Build quality is all right, with a slightly less thick gauge of cable than some other HDMI cables.

The headshell bears similarities to other better known brands.

Quality isn't notably different from a freebie cable, so invest in this only if you've either not got a cable already, or find that you need a longer one.
