    Quite honestly..component cables (Mine are official Nintendo ones) make an amazing difference. I have a 52 inch DLP HDTV and I play smash bros a ton. The difference between having progressive on and off..is insane. Youl never want to play it on a regular tv again.
    My green laser.. Go Nintendo!



    My Wii Code : 6547 - 0888 - 4319 - 0033
    My SSBB Code : 3609 - 0863 - 8108

    Please feel free to add me, ill reply asap.

    When you transfer your video feed from your cable box to your tv, you need a good cable. Also this goes for anything that you send to your Tv If you try and send HIgh Quality video through a cheap crappy cable you lose tremendous Quality.

    I would pay a little more money an buy like a MonsterCable or a good reliable brand.The cables that the tv company give your are jsut cheap china junk.
    They want give you the most inexpenxive product and charge you a fortune.


    Thx Princelink for the sig

    Brands mean nothing when it comes to cables. A $5 brand is generally just as good as a $50 brand. The "Monster" cable thing is just a scam.

    I Wouldnt saay that it is a scam, some cables that are 5$ are good enough for the average Joe but a MonsterCable is a professional grade quality. Ask any electronic expert.

    Just look at the diametor of the Monstercable compared to the average one. It is much bigger and more fibers to pass info throught. Now Monstercable is fiberoptic which is the ultimate cable.

    Bottom Line: "You get what you pay for"

    It's worth it if you have all the right things in all the right places

    but 90% of the time it makes virtually no difference and the "better quality" you see is all in your head

    and most pictures on a TV can be improved to be 20% better just by tweeking the brightness/contrast, sharpness, Gamma etc

    I bought Nintendo component cables for my old-school tube TV (new enough to have component input but not progressive scan) and for my sister's new LCD HDTV (720p). The cable made a huge improvement to the picture on my tube TV. The picture was staggeringly less blurry. I was astonished. On my sister's LCD HDTV, however, the improvement was much less noticeable. And, yes, I switched her Wii from 480i to 480p.

    Why the difference in the results? Well, I think her TV just looked better to begin with. It didn't look as awful with the original composite cable as my tube TV did. So the new component cable didn't help as much.
