Best HDMI cable?

Posted by No Regrets on December 8, 2011 at 09:05:10:

I have just upgraded from my old fashioned "tubed" tv to a new Panasonic VIERA TC-P42ST30 42-Inch 1080p 3D Plasma HDTV.

This is all new to me, so I thought I'd enlist your help. I will be using Time Warner HDTV and I guess I need to purchase a HDMI cable. The store that I bought the TV from said that the included HDMI cable is junk.

What should I buy for the best picture and sound? I can hear a difference between my audio cables in my two channel analog audio system.....but is there a difference between HDMI cables?

Thank you for any help/suggestions that you are willing to share with me.
