Looking for slim / thin video cables

Monoprice has Ultra Slim SVGA cables available that I like, but the rest of the Monoprice video cables are a bit bulky.

Any recommendations for other brands of video cables (especially DVI) between 3 and 10 feet that are good quality but still thin and flexible?

Re: Looking for slim / thin video cables

Only if they are HDMI does "slim" and "quality" happen in the same sentence, and only then with Redmere tech. Video frequencies are easy to alter in a cable (from electrical interference) whether analog or digital, so quality cables have always been pretty thick due to the required shielding. For long runs, pros have mostly switched over to ethernet to make it thinner since that uses better wire tech.

That said, you asked about short runs. I think their 28AWG DVI cables are the same thickness as what you linked. And their quality is decent, I think that's what I use. They seem fairly flexible. They can make them a little thinner if they use the ferrite cores (the big lumps one inch from the connector) instead of heavy shielding.
