Review (March 2010)
By Kevin Nakano
Accell Corporation has been manufacturing affordable high quality A/V cables for years and we have been following them from the very beginning. Their product line includes a wide selection of both analog and digital cables designed for the best performance for the dollar. We previously reviewed their impressive 25-meter Ultrarun 1.3 HDMI cable that offered amazing performance while still being affordable. Along with their full line of HDMI cables, Accell has recently introduced the AVGrip™ Pro Locking High Speed HDMI cable. Unlike many of the standard HDMI connectors that can be susceptible to popping out of the mating connector, the AVGrip™ Pro has HDMI connectors that are designed to lock and deliver up to 12 pounds of retention force. The result is a cable that works just like any other HDMI cable, but one that also provides locking benefits.
We connected a 2-meter sample (B104C-007B) of the AVGrip™ Pro Locking HDMI Cable between an OPPO BDP-83 Blu-ray player and a Denon AVR-5308CI A/V receiver. The OPPO offers some of the best performance we have seen in a BD player and the Denon provides excellent audio performance. Video was sent to a reference quality Anthem LTX-500v LCos (D-ILA) video projector using the Accell 25-meter Ultrarun 1.3 HDMI cable. Video quality was as good as any we have seen with this system and the AVGrip™ Pro Locking HDMI Cable provided excellent performance. Both audio and video quality were flawless on this system.
