Anyone tried the cheapo DVI cables available on ebay?

    I am looking to connect my Hitachi 57" RPTV to my DirecTV HD box. Right now I am using component cables. The TV is the 57f500 and the box is the Hughes HD box, no TiVo. Both take a DVI-D connection. A 6 foot DVI-D dual link cable from Blue Jeans is $44 plus shipping. On ebay, you can get them for $10 ($8 of which is shipping). Yes, ding ding ding, alarm bells are going off! Just looking for opinions that might have compared the two beyond just "go with a trusted source." I can make that decision myself based on price v. credibility (and also would like to support the forum if it makes sense). [​IMG] I'm looking for someone who has some experience with the product, or even suggestions for others. Thanks in advance.

    I picked up a 20' DVI-D cable at www.buyextras.com. The brand is NXG. I paid just under $50 including shipping. The cable is a little bulky but it works like champ.
