Time to poll the audience

Dear Lazyweb -

Is there a reason I shouldn't buy a $5 HDMI cable online instead of the $40 - $175 HDMI cables that I see at every store I go to? I understand that there are varying qualities of HDMI cables and that I want to make sure I get a 1.3a/b/c to ensure that I get quality 1080p from my PS3, but if the $5 cable says it's 1.3a/b/c compliant, then why would I pay for the $175 cable? I've ordered a couple el cheapos from Amazon to get me by once the new TV arrives, but if someone can give me a compelling reason to buy the traditional store brand cables, I'm all ears (or eyes, as the case may be).

Sincerely,
A/V Challenged
