    HD cables are better for moving stuff . if it's a still image , you won,t see any changes , excpet if you get 720P or 1080I HSD cables (the number is the number of lines on the screen , so 480I and 480P have the same number of lines , so no change in resolution)

    I have the nintendo component cables and they work great on my hdtv! They are pretty good quality too, the wire is pretty thick.

    i bought the $10 ebay ones and they are work great no issues at all...

    not much of a difference in picture quality to the untrained eye. but if you get into any fast moving action you can tell the difference you will see some lines here and there with the av cables but the component cables eliminate that...

    btw most brand name cables are WAY over priced...

    just check www.monoprice.com for some great deals on cables not for the wii of course since it's propritory to nintendo... but lots of good prices and the quality is the same as the high priced brand names ones...

    most of the time , you pay for the name .

    cables are cable . it's made of cable . even if it's black , blue , yellow , ord with red dots , it's still a cable . buy a cheap one , it'll do the exact same job than an expensive one , especially if it's short (less than 10' )

    You can buy cheap milk , or expensive milk , it'll still taste milk.

    Uh.. ok, but no.
    Component cables are analogue and as a result the quality of their construction, and the parts that make them up, can make the difference between working and not working.

    i'm sorry my friend , but you can do whichever test you want with FAIRLY NEW cables , it'll all be the same result.

    if we talk about OLDER cable (2+ years) , you,re right . gold plated will last longer , etc...


    also , remember that we talk here about 480P . if we talked about 1080I , or 1080P , then you're right.

    "i'm sorry my friend , but you can do whichever test you want with FAIRLY NEW cables , it'll all be the same result."
    So if I bought some cheap unshielded, or poorly shielded 10ft. to 6ft. long RG-59 component cables, I'm not going to experience any noticeable or even negligible degradation in image quality from an analog 480p signal?

    What if I told you that there was a 1000w receiver, an XBox360, a DISH network satellite receiver, and a set of 5.1 speakers totaling 900w surrounding the TV and the Wii with all its power/video/audio wires running parallel with the component cable mentioned above?

    Will it "all be the same result", as you put it, in that situation?

    I already know the answer and have experienced the difference between "fairly new" cheaply made cables and quality cables I've made myself.

    For those that would like to know how to make component cables themselves, I point you to a very informative DIY video from Systm:
