HDMI TV cable recommendations

I've been looking at HDMI cables and there are several types available. I need a good one but not a real expensive one; about 6' long to connect one end of the cable to my cable TV digital box and the other end to an HDMI input on the back of my HDTV set.

My HDTV set is a 32" LG LF500B LED HDTV set with 720p 60Hz. I've seen listings for HDMI HD cables; HDMI HD cables with Wi-Fi; 720p cables and 1080p cables. Can I purchase a 1080p cable and connect it to my 720p LED HDTV set?

I was here a few hours ago trying to post a response to my original post but this laptop was on crack. I tried to type in a response; when I hit the keys on the keyboard nothing happened then suddenly ( Not Responding ) appeared at the top of my screen and I had to shut everything down.

To answer your question about where I read about different types of HDMI cables I read that on New Egg; Amazon; and Walmart last night. Thanks for the link you provided on HDMI cables from Amazon. I started another thread asking for advice on a new surge protector; if you have time chime in there and give me a recommendation.

That link to CNET HDMI cable descriptions was a good one; lots of detailed info. Sorry for posting previously that I thought your link was to HDMI cables sold on Amazon.
