DO NOT BUY YOUR CABLES IN A STORE
Need a TV wall-mount? Monoprice.com
Need an HDMI cable? Monoprice.com
Need a retractable iPod cable? Monoprice.com
This place really lives up to its reputation. You can get HDMI cables for under $6, every day. Best Buy charges $220 for an equivalent cable. The Monoprice cables are every bit as good, I promise.
Don't listen to the TV salesman. Do your own research. Incredibly, you'll spend twice as much just on tax for the Best Buy cable than the Monoprice cable costs total.
Best Buy wants $152.99 (on sale) for a wall-mount rated lower than the one I bought for $24.50.
Check out this order I just placed:
Adjustable Tilting Wall Mount Bracket(Max 165Lbs) - $24.50
Retractable iPhone sync Cable (Quantity: 4) - $6.24
SubTotal - $30.74
S&H Cost - $10.64
Grand Total - $41.38
Do me a favor, and tell everyone you know not to buy ANY cables or wall-mounts from retailers. Wal-Mart charges a lot less than Best Buy for HDMI cables, but even $20 is a lot more than $5.
