I have this problem. I bought from someone a PS3 and I need a HDMI cable. The thing is that I have o idea how to choose it. I did found a hdmi cables uk store with free shipping and all, but I don't really know how to look for one.

My PS3 is Sony PlayStation 3 Slim 500GB if that helps. Thank you.

HDMI is HDMI for the most part. Read the article Bob linked, then read it again for good measure. Maybe even read it a third time just to make sure everything has sunk in. Just go out and buy the cheapest HDMI cable you can find. At the typical 1-3m lengths, there's no difference at all. You shouldn't need to pay more than probably 2-3 quid for a cable, maybe a bit more after VAT.

I have found they are ridiculously expensive in stores. I ordered mine off of Amazon and they were around $5 for one and they are good quality.
