    Wire is wire. As long as the cable is put together decently, there is no difference. And really, no company is going to bother with making the molds and stuff without providing for the cable basics. Returns cost far more than production.

    I've seen the same aftermarket Wii component cables at Best Buy for $29.99, on ebay for $14.95 + $4.00 shipping, and at www.meritline.com for $9.00 including shipping. I've used one of these for a month, they work exactly the same as a Nintendo cable or high-end aftermarket.

    Those little electrons can't really see the color of the vinyl, or the logo embossed on the plugs. They just follow the copper.

    As far as I know the Wii can only support 480P. The only way you could achieve 540P is with an up-scaling and you would not be getting a true 540P.

    Where did you get this info? Source?

    This is from cnet.com

    Component video adapter: The Wii doesn't have the graphical horsepower to handle high-def graphics, but it can do DVD-level 480p video, which will look considerably better on large HDTVs. To see the Wii's games in 480p, you'll need Nintendo's proprietary component video adapter, which should run about $20.

    where did you hear of the 540p setting?

    and why would they need new cables to do this? components can handle more than 480p, look at the xbox 360 for example...

    they wouldnt need a new cable, just a system update...

    I bought the Psyclone cables (along with a new TV) and I am more than pleased with the new picture from my Wii.
