Most all of the cables I've shown can be found in varying lengths from monoprice, Amazon, newegg, etc... and you should be able to find many of them at your local big box store.

You do not need to spend big money on a cable, someone has a cable they want $50 or more - tell them thanks, but you're no fool - but, would recommend you not buy any el cheapo $2-4 cable off ebay (or amazon either). Decent cables are cheap enough. Also, don't buy a separate adapter and a HDMI cable unless I have specifically noted to do so for your Mac - you're just introducing another failure point when there is no reason to.

For those using mdp to HDMI, I recommend you buy 2 - so that you have one for troubleshooting and as a spare - the mdp to HDMI cables in particular (and the adapters) seem to have a life span related to how often they're being plugged in and unplugged - seen it too often with both cheap and expensive ones - so save yourself the hassle later and spend the extra $10 or whatever now and keep the extra with the rest of your misc cables.

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
