    I'm looking for a decently long (2-3m 6-10ft) DVI to HDMI cable to connect my powerbook to my Sony LCD TV. I'm going to be in the US from the end of next week for a couple of weeks and figured these things are a lot easier to get over there.
    Anybody have any good/bad experiences with particular cables? I'm just looking to get some opinions to know what to look for/avoid.

    Hope you guys can help me out!

    These tend to be pretty spendy regardless of where you get them, but I bought a budget 3.5m cable on eBay that seems to work just fine. Have a look there if you're not terribly picky about quality.

    I bought a cheapy TRT one from TigerDirect.ca in Canada for $18 CAD, if that's any help to you. All the retailers in Canada only seem to carry Monster Cable, which are $100 to $150 for the same cable. I'm sure you can find one in a small electronics store if you looked, just stay away from big stores.
