    Wii HDTV Component Cable -- Worth getting?

    Hello

    I'm sure this question has been kicked around a few times, but there's no search feature that I can see, so I thought I'd just start a new thread.

    Are these cables worth buying?

    I see them priced from $20 all the way to $50. Is there a big difference on the quality of cable you buy?

    Does anyone have a link to recommended cables?

    Thanks much!

    Yes they are worth buying in my opinion. They make the image so much sharper, and if you have a nice TV it really enhances the color. By the way there is a search feature on the right side of the forums right under the User Control Panel.

    Here's the cables I have:

    no name brand from this website: http://www.ledshoppe.com/Product/ts/TS3003.htm
    they're 15 bucks, free shipping, excellent quality (better than nintendo's crap cables)

    AND here's some shots off my 58" plasma with the cables hooked up and all settings correct:
    PLEASE NOTE: these pictures do not do justice to what it really looks like.

    I have a 27inch standard def tv with component but that's being taken by the dvd player and im not getting adapters or switching or any of that.

    in short.

    should I stay composite, or should I step up to svideo?

    Svideo isn't that great of a difference, don't waste your money. On your tv you won't be able to tell.

    Svideo is a great improvement over composite. Don't take my word for it though, the wikipedia article on svideo explains it well. Here is the specific section to read http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Svideo#Overview

    Svideo is nearly equal to interlaced component in regards to picture sharpness
