HDMI Cable Bends Over Backwards for Your Design Needs

HDMI Cable Bends Over Backwards for Your Design Needs

One of the major design flaws of any power or source cord is that they're designed not to be crammed against the wall. Their input plugs just don't flex, so you're left with an inch of stick straight cable preventing you from pushing your PS3 all the way to the back of a media cabinet.

Hopefully Sanus' new rotating HDMI cable will spark a trend with cord designers.

Sanus Elements' new line of HDMI cables, the ELM402-G1 ($29.99), ELM405-G1 ($39.99) and ELM410-G1 ($49.99) all sport a connector head made from a flexible material that pivots 180 degrees. Sanus told CE Pro that the gold plated connector is less than one inch deep.

How many of you will be forking over to try this out? Or are we the only ones who get irritated when we can't close a cabinet door because of an inflexible cord?
