I've had luck with monoprice.com, bluejeanscable.com & amazon premium HDMI cables. Short runs of inexpensive cables from known entities such as the above should work just fine for you.

unless you have really long runs (over 16 feet or so) or are doing an in-wall installation and want to future-proof yourself so you dan;t have to tear up the sheet rock again.

The three sources he mentioned are reliable places to get cables at a good price. 1.3B cables are fine for most older equipment. Newer 3d equipment will likely work better with HDMI 1.4 cables.

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
