It's better to not go through adapters, so might as well get the straight-through cable.

There's less of a chance of the signal degrading by not going through an adapter.

BTW, HDMI Cable, Home Theater Accessories, HDMI Products, Cables, Adapters, Video/Audio Switch, Networking, USB, Firewire, Printer Toner, and more!

Has cheap cables that are still good; can see if you can find a cheaper one that what Newegg has.
