Why PrimeCables’ Cables are the Best in Canada – get them on-sale this June

If there’s one thing we know at PrimeCables, it’s cables. We’ve got HDMI cables, USB cables, audio cables, video cables, VGA, DVI, RCA audio cables, network Ethernet cables, computer cables, DisplayPort cables, Apple, smartphone, tablet, and more.

 

Why PrimeCables’ cables are some of the best in Canada are for many reasons. First off, when it comes down to price, you won’t find a better deal anywhere else. You can pick up USB cables, HDMI cables, or whatever you need in bulk for a better price than any Walmart, Best Buy, or elsewhere can give you.

 

Secondly – and this is a big reason – quality. Audiophiles love PrimeCables because they know when they buy a discount cable from us, they’re still getting a high quality cable. It’s not going to be broken, low quality, or not deliver the performance you want. There’s a lot of false promises made in the electronics industry and none of those are coming from us. PrimeCables always delivers on its claims.

 

Thirdly, the cables themselves look great. A lot of the USB cables come braided to protect the technology inside. Other cables are designed color-coded or carry natural aesthetics which translate well to anyone’s home theater space or in personal use. You won’t feel embarrassed, for example, pulling out your headphones to listen to some music on the commute home.

 

Lastly, there are a lot of supportive products around our cables that we’re sure you may be interested in. There’s plenty to look at online through PrimeCables’ store that would complement your new pair of headphones or speakers, or vice versa.

 

You don’t need to spend $100s or $1,000s to get the right collection of cables you want. For as swanky or as expensive other brands’ are, you can get the same performance from PrimeCables and pocket the money you would have spent on something at a higher price point. If you don’t believe us, check out the product reviews and what audiophiles are saying online.

 

There are plenty of people who know nothing about audio who will spend a lot of money trying to get the right setup for them. For PrimeCables, our modus operandi was to get as close to premium product as we can while keeping everything at a fair price point so that families could afford the basics like a USB sync and charge cable, or an HDMI cable to plug their laptop into their flat-screen.

HDMI or DisplayPort, Which is Better for my Computer Monitor – read here!

HDMI and DisplayPort both have their advantages. Which should you use to hook up your computer to your monitor – well, the answer lies in what type of monitor you have and how you plan on using it.

 

Whether you already have a computer monitor set up or are considering buying a new one, the ports you have are the ports you have and that’s pretty permanent. Take a look behind your monitor and computer, and see what you’re working with. You may have DisplayPort or HDMI depending. Although there are PrimeCables adapters which can be purchased to modify the ports you have, all in all, you’re going to be working with whatever you got going on already.

 

As you can imagine, different ports carry with them different capabilities. Gaming monitors typically carry with them at least two different port types – HDMI and DisplayPort.

 

HDMI cables are one of the most popular consumer cables available, used on TVs of all varieties. Achieve high-definition video and audio in a single cable. There are multiple versions of HDMI cables available – such as HDMI 1.4, HDMI 2.0, and HDMI 2.1. The differences between them are admittedly minimal however they do count. The great thing about HDMI ports is that they incorporate FreeSync technology usually which reduces and eliminates screen tearing in games by matching the monitor’s refresh rate to your video card’s frame rate.

 

DisplayPort is similar to HDMI however DisplayPort is more common to PCs than TVs. Using DisplayPort, you get high-definition video and audio just like HDMI and also come in different standards – DisplayPort 1.2, DisplayPort 1.3, and DisplayPort 1.4. Although some have the perception that HDMI is better than DisplayPort cables, it is the latte which is featured on some of Canada’s best computer monitors. DisplayPort also carries FreeSync technology and can also be used to split a signal across multiple monitors – something which multiple HDMI ports would be required to achieve.

 

So which one you choose depends on you. HDMI and DisplayPort are very much equal. DisplayPort carries a little more versatility to it however HDMI is a little easier to use. Oftentimes, available ports will make the decision for you on which to use.

 

PrimeCables has DisplayPort cables, HDMI cables, computer monitor cables, and much more available on-sale. If you don’t have the right ports on your computer and devices, consider browsing some of our adapters which are equipped with the right technology to instantly convert your ports into something more accommodating.

HDMI vs. DisplayPort – Which is Better for Gaming

Getting the best high-definition picture quality for your gaming system involves many different variables. Typically, things, like having a great graphic card and pairing it with a high quality monitor, is important. Nevertheless, those are not the only things that influence video quality. Surprisingly, cable has a huge role to play. If you’ve got a basic audio-video cable, expect to receive a signal that is… well, basic.

PrimeCables: Differences betweem Displayport, DVI and VGA cables
PrimeCables: Differences betweem Displayport, DVI and VGA cables

 

There’s no shortage of advanced audio-video cables for gaming available. The most popular gaming cables are VGA, DVI, HDMI, and DisplayPort. VGA and DVI cables are somewhat antiquated though you can still get a pretty good signal from them. DVI is familiar but has its limitation and VGA capability is on its way out, though either may be appropriate for a low-end video card. By far, when searching for the most advanced cable, you’ll want to go with either HDMI or DisplayPort. But, which one is better – that’s what we’re here to discuss.

 

The argument for HDMI

 

HDMI stands for “high definition multimedia interface” and is considered the most advanced home theater consumer cable today. HDMI cables can be used to connect gaming consoles, an A/V receiver, or streaming media box. For computer-based monitor systems, they will likely have HDMI inputs ready to go. The most advanced HDMI cable on the market today is HDMI 2.1, capturing up to 8K video when possible. Also, it maintains a 48 Gbps-bandwidth, impressive specifications supporting HDR, enhanced audio return channel functionality and more. Now, there are some HDMI 4K cables limited to a 30 Hz refresh rate. For gaming, that’s not great so you may wish to buy a more advanced HDMI cable or to seek out DisplayPort.

 

The argument for DisplayPort

 

Most modern video cards are equipped with DisplayPort connections. DisplayPorts are rarely found on contemporary flat-screens however they are present on computer monitors and similar setups. Depending on the refresh technology used, sometimes you may be forced to use a DisplayPort cable. For example, FreeSync requires an HDMI cable whereas Nvidia’s G-Sync requires DisplayPort. Though HDMI is portrayed as superior to DisplayPort, that’s not necessarily true. The latest update on DisplayPort includes 32.4Gbps of bandwidth and an impressive 3:1 lossless compression ratio which makes it perfect for some gaming setups.

 

Whether you choose HDMI or DisplayPort, there’s a lot to weigh. If you choice is not already preordained, do your research. HDMI supports higher maximum resolutions however one would have to have a massive system to accommodate its top end specifications. Arguably, a DisplayPort cable makes more sense for gamers, especially those on multiple monitors.
