    Hey all, this seemed to be the appropriate place to put this topic, so please forgive me if it's not. :eek:

    Anyway, I'm looking to pick up some simple DVI cables for my monitors and need some recommendations on the best place to purchase them. I recently stumbled across MonoPrice.com, and it looked like the best deal. The only thing stopping me are a few reviews I read questioning the site's security. Sorry this is so random, but I refuse to pay $30 per cable at BestBuy, etc., when I can find them for $10 somewhere else.

    If anyone can help me out, it would be greatly appreciated! :)

    Love, love, love Monoprice. Used them many times and never had a bad experience! In fact, I just bought my monitor desk mounts from them, and saved nearly $190 per mount. Great site, man.

    Yes, man. What he said and +10000 times over.

    Monoprice and never look back.

    Edit: I've ordered there many times, and in fact just ordered a mini Display port extension cable over the weekend to prepare for the upcoming 27" ACD :)D).

    Yea, never had any issues with them.

    Awesome! Thanks for the responses. I will definitely order now; I've yet to find better prices anywhere else!

    I agree with the posters above, Monoprice rules. No contest.

    I'll add to the Monoprice love.

    But just a heads up if you're buying a MiniDP to HDMI adapter. Last I heard their cable doesn't transfer audio from the new MacBooks. They could have changed it recently, but I had to go with someone on eBay for mine because of this.

    Haha, yep, I ordered two 15 foot DVI cables last night and paid roughly half of what I would have anywhere else. :)
