NTW Ultra Thin Low Profile HDMI Cable (1 of 3)

I’ve been using Hyperthin cables for almost a year now, great cables, more flexible than a headphone cable, and if you catch them at the right time of year they’re around $14 a peace. Not a groundbreaking price but still fairly reasonable for the amount of flexibility a cable like this provides.

The only complaint I really have with the Hyperthin cables (top cable, above) is availablity. It can sometimes take 2 or 3 months to get the cables you order and sometimes orders are simply canceled. I’m not really sure if it’s a high demand issue, a manufacturing problem, or if they simply don’t keep enough inventory in stock.

I’ve been waiting for over a month and a half for my latest order of Hyperthin cables, so in the meantime I’ve decided to give another Ultra thin cable a try. At $7 a cable the NTW ultra thin 3′ cable comes in at about half the price of the Hyperthin cable and it showed up only 6 days after my order.

While thinner than most ordinary hdmi cables, the NTW ultra thin 3′ cable is still kind of chunky when compared to the Hyperthin cable. The NTW ultra thin cable has a slightly lower profile HDMI plug, but isn’t quite as flexible as the Hyperthin.

I’ve spent a few days with the NTW ultra thin cable and I still prefer the Hyperthin cables, but honestly I don’t have time to wait for Hyperthin cables to be delivered. I wont be canceling my long delayed Hyperthin order, but I’ll be using these NTW cables until they show up. In the end, it’s a little cheaper and it doesn’t feel as good as the Hyperthin cables, but it’s available and does just about as well for the price.
