To get the best picture from your HDTV, you will need a HDMI cable. You can pick up a basic (aka reasonably priced) Monster HDMI cable from Walmart or Radio Shack. These cables can get pricey so it’s good to know Monster is producing a cable with great results at under $50.
A Few Features of the Monster Cable Basic HDMI Cable:
- • Legendary Monster Cable performance and engineering at a price everyone can afford
• Delivers 1080p Full HD video
• Carries digital surround sound for a movie theater experience
• CL-3 rated by Underwriters Laboratories for in-wall installation
• Recyclable cardboard packaging is a green alternative to plastic
Tips for HD Travelers
Hotel rooms just aren’t what they used to be – and that’s a good thing! Warehouses around the country are filling up with the bulky cabinets that used to house the equally bulky 25” cathode ray TVs that were the hotel standard for decades. Those relics have now been replaced – virtually overnight, it seems – by sleek wall-mounted HDTVs.
At the same time, travelers have changed too. Smart Phones that can produce high definition video and play back full-length movies, ultra portable video games and sophisticated lap top computers are all a part of the modern traveler’s media kit.
So, how do you make the most of that beautiful hotel HDTV and all those powerful devices you’re carrying around? Simple. Hook ‘em up!
If you’re like most people, you’ll want to kick off your shoes, relax on the bed and use the hotel TV as your display. To do that, you need about an eight foot HDMI cable stashed in your travel satchel.
If you’re using your lap top, a standard HDMI cable is all you need. The newest generation of Smart Phones uses a micro-HDMI cable, so a standard to micro-HDMI cable is just the ticket to get images from your phone up on the TV.
One more thing. Standard HDMI cable can be a bit on the heavy side. For a lighter, more portable, alternative you might want to check out Monster’s SuperThin HDMI cable.
The sales associate at your local electronics store should be able to point you toward the correct HDMI cable for your travel needs. If you’re already on the move, check out an airport retailer like InMotion to get the right hook up.
You can find more tips and information about Monster’s Product line on their Facebook Page.
You will also want to make sure to pick up the Monster ScreenClean Kit. With kids with grubby little paws our devices are often needing a good clean. Whether it gets cleaned or not is another story! ;) Sofia just passed back my iPhone the other night and I’m not sure what it even was that was on it but it was like a thin layer of kid grime!
The Monster ScreenClean can be used on any electronic device including your iPad, cellphone, TV, computer screen, laptop, and more! It cleans safely without streaking or scratching without hurting delicate screens. The antibacterial cloth removes 99.9% of germs!
This would make a great stocking stuffer!
One last gift idea for someone who is serious about listening to music is the
Butterfly by Vivienne Tam High Performance earphones (not included in the giveaway). These serious earphones also come at a serious price – $179 on Amazon. These headphones even have an inline mic that works with your iPod and iPhone.
You won’t want to lose these headphones! :)
