I didn't realize there were different ones...

I'm on monoprice.com and I'm seeing a few different types. I just bought a Blu-Ray player and the cables it came with are about 2' too small.

What's the difference between: 22AWG HDMI 1.3a Category 2 Certified and 22AWG HDMI and 24AWG HDMI 1.3a and 24AWG HDMI 1.3a Category 2 Certified and 24AWG Flat Type and 26AWG HDMI and 28AWG HDMI... is there a kind that won't work or would work better?`

IMO - I bought the cheapest HDMI cable I could find. It's a digital signal, not analog, so as long as it meets the 1.3a spec, you are good to go.

Target had 9 foot HDMI cables on sale for $9.99. I bought them and use them to run my Blu-Ray to my 3D-HDTV.

Works fine.

Go to the Blue Jeans Cable web site.  Read and learn.  Blue Jeans Cables are as good or better than anything else out there, certainly as good as Monoprice.

Given how inexpensive Monoprice cables are, they darn well better be as good.

Monoprice cables are excellent for those who were wondering.

EDIT- Bluejeans HDMI cables are competitive with Monoprice in terms of cost.
