Choosing the best cable for you: Thunderbolt versus USB 3.0 versus USB 2.0

May 10, 2013

usb_30We all know that USB 3.0 is meant to be faster and more efficient for data transfer than 2.0, but should you really invest in upgrading your home or office to meet the new standard? Who wins in Thunderbolt versus USB 3.0? Whether or not you should upgrade your existing set-up or not has been hotly debated in recent months. Let this guide help you navigate the pesky question of whether or not upgrading is right for you.

First, let’s deal with USB 2.0 vs. 3.0. If your hardware only supports USB 2.0, you won’t be seeing accelerated data transfer, but you’ll be paying a premium for your USB 3.0 cables. If you want faster file transfers and you’re using older systems, it may be time to upgrade your hardware before you deal with your cables. It’s important to remember that your file transfers are only as fast as their individual parts allow them to be. So if your desktop or laptop is equipped with USB 3.0, and you’ve just purchased a USB 3.0 cable, you won’t see faster speeds if you’re linking them to an external drive that still operates on USB 2.0.

If you’re comparing Thunderbolt versus USB 3.0, the competition becomes more interesting. USB 3.0 is more ubiquitous, but Thunderbolt is faster and more reliable. Ultimately, if you need professional components that only work for Thunderbolt, you should go that route. But if you don’t have any special demands, the USB 3.0 products should work just fine for you.

Enjoy More Baseball this Season with Satellite MultiSwitches

Apr 11, 2013

If you love baseball and currently have satellite television, you may be running into problems. Satellite TV systems limit the number of televisions you can have before adding new satellite receivers onto your system. This can be frustrating if you have many televisions in your home. Sometimes only one or two family members enjoy watching a game on TV while others do not. This usually means that baseball fans have to find their own TV to watch the game on.

By using products like satellite multiswitches, you can split the signal from one receiver to multiple televisions without suffering from signal loss. This means that a two receiver home can split the signal of each receiver to multiple televisions. A satellite multiswitch makes it easy to enjoy the entertainment you want in any room of your house. Finally baseball fans can enjoy the games they want, when they want, where they want.

Multisiwtches are ideal for sports package subscribers who may have access to games from other broadcast areas. Now you can watch those games on different TVs without having to miss any of the action. It’s also great for homes that want to watch the same game on more than one TV at the same time. Simply install the multiswitch and enjoy the baseball season on every TV.

Find the perfect Blu-Ray Accessories

HDMI CablesSo you’ve got a great HDTV and a brand new Blu-Ray player and you’re ready for high quality entertainment. Before you get everything connected, here are a few accessories that could make your life simpler, or your entertainment experience even better.


In order to get the best picture and sound quality from your Blu-Ray player you’ll need to use a quality HDMI cable to connect the player to your high definition TV. These cables come in a variety of lengths to accommodate various installation applications.


If your high definition TV only has one or two HDMI inputs and you have multiple HDMI devices to connect, don’t resort to using lower quality inputs to connect your devices. With an HDMI switch you can connect multiple HDMI devices into a single switchbox that will only use one of your televisions HDMI inputs. Once your devices are all connected through the HDMI switcher you can easily choose which device you want to watch by changing input channels on the switch box.


If you need to send your HDMI signal a long way you will need to amplify it so the signal does not degrade. You can send your digital audio and video signals through cat6 network cables or over wifi to devices in other parts of your home or business. Check out our selection of HDMI amplifiers and extenders to find the right solution for you.

Port savers

When connecting an HDMI cable to a wall mounted television that has rear mounted ports, it can be difficult to get plugs in and out. Kinking cables at a 90 degree angle also damages plug ends by putting stress on the cable and the ports. That’s why we carry port savers adapters to alleviate this stress. By turning your inputs 90 degrees cables and easily plug without creating any undue stress

Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About HDMI Cables

Mar 19, 2013

HDMI LogoHDMI cables are becoming the most common audio visual cables on the market today, but what makes them so special? This blog takes a look at some of the features of HDMI cables and what makes them so popular with today’s electronics.

HDMI stands for High-Definition Multimedia Interface. These cables are a relatively new addition to the world of audio video cables. They were originally designed in December 2002 and have been available since late 2003. Recently the cable celebrated its 10th anniversary, with over 3 billion devices using it as the standard connection.

What makes the HDMI cable unique is that it can carry uncompressed video and audio data between devices. In the past separate cables were needed to carry video and audio signals. This cable not only allows the transfer of both, but it does so without needing to compress or convert the signal. This means that the best picture and sound quality can be maintained between devices.

HDMI cables are also backward-compatible with DVI connections. The older DVI standard was also used to carry digital video signal. HDMI cables can interface with DVI ports through the use of a connector, but the video feed does not require any signal conversion. Images can easily be transferred without loss of quality.

The Power of Digital Coaxial Audio Cables

Feb 27, 2013

digital coaxial cableIf you’re still using the red and white RCA stereo connectors to send audio signals between your audio visual components then you should pay attention. There is a better way to transfer audio signals to and from today’s digital devices. A digital coaxial audio cable is a one plug solution that can improve your sound quality and broaden your audio horizons.

Digital coaxial cables look similar to the traditional RCA audio cables because they have the same RCA connector on the end. The most obvious difference is that there is only one signal cable instead of two. Don’t be fooled, unlike the old days where 2 separate signal cables were needed to transfer the left and right audio channel, a digital coaxial cable can send both signals on the same cable. In fact, digital coaxial cables support stereo audio as well as DTS and Dolby 5.1 surround sound. That means more connection options with a single cable.

In addition to connection options, these cables have a much higher bandwidth than their traditional analog RCA cables cousins. That translates to better signal transfer and bigger sound. These cables offer the best data transfer of digital audio signals making them perfect for connecting home theatre systems, MP3 player docking stations, and more.
