Why do I need Laser GTEK HDMI 2.1 Ultra High Speed cables?

HDMI standards are

  • 1.4 for 1080p only – throw these away if you have 4K. The cost is a few dollars and are likely most of the HDMI cables you have lying around.
  • ‘High Speed’ for 4K@30Hz – if you want to play Blu-Ray Dolby Atmos content, forget these. Cost $20-$50
  • Premium High Speed’ for 4K@60Hz – supports Dolby Atmos and a good all-rounder
  • ‘Ultra High Speed’ – 48Gbps, 4K@120Hz and mandatory for 8K. Best of all are backwards compatible.

Cables are backwards compatible. You can read more about HDMI cables and why they make so much of a difference. Laser GTEK is a trusted brand – so many of the cheap cables sold at online merchant site are poor quality.
