    Went into a store tonight to buy an HDMI cord for my Roku to HDTV [1080 not 4K]

    Saw cheapo HDMI's about $5,than name brands at $10, than premiums HDMI from $15 - $30 plus
    Here is an example of a premium for $15:

    What should i buy? I am thinking the $10 name brand is fine, but if a premium HDMI cord may give me even a tad better picture, maybe i should buy one at $15

    For a short cable (upto about 10m), any will be fine for your use.

    If you were looking for a very long cable and 4k res. then I would advise going with a higher quality cable.

    They typically work or they don't. However, there are several versions of the HDMI spec which can also affect how well/or if a cable works for a specific use.
