I first wrote about Torrent’s Sureconnect HDMI cables back in June. These cables have a feature that makes the connection more secure, and the plug less likely to pull out of the connector by accident. They also have a clever feature in that an LED lights up to indicate that you’ve got a solid connection.
In the past few weeks, the company has made a couple of noteworthy announcements. Their products are now available through both Amazon and Dell.com. Presumably other retailers will follow, but these two make a pretty good start.
The cables aren’t inexpensive, but they also cost less than the top-priced brands. In addition to the more secure plug design and connection verification light, they are made using high quality materials that are friendly to the environment. I still contend that most users will be fine using the least expensive HDMI cables they can find, but if you’re looking for a step up or need a plug that will stay put, the Torrent cables are worth a look.
