    Ordered my component cables from Nintendo's online store on Monday, just got them about an hour ago. Looks like they aren't backordered anymore.

    Really?

    Dang...that's nuts! You must live close to WA or something. I ordered mine on 11/22 and the UPS tracking says they should be delivered tomorrow 12/7.

    I live in Ohio, but I paid for overnight shipping. I was just surprised they shipped as soon as they did. I assumed they were at the very least still in the process of shipping out the pre-orders, so I figured I was in for a little wait.

    I ordered mine from Nintendo yesterday. It says they were shipped today, second day air. Hopefully, I'll get it on Friday (I like in NYC).

    For those of you that got them.... Was it worth it?? I have a SD TV, I don't know if you guys have HD TV's, but was it worth it to get these cables...

    I have an HDTV, haven't gotten my cables yet (they come today), but based on these comparisons:

    http://www.gamespot.com/features/6162297/p-2.html

    I think it'll be worth it.

    Now for you, since you have an SDTV, you won't see this dramatic difference. You will, however notice a better picture quality (better colors and eliminate dot-crawl) if you step up to S-Video, but the difference between S-Video and Component won't be that much on an SDTV.

    I would suggest getting the component cable anyways since it's not that much more expensive than S-video, plus you'll be future-proofed in case you ever get an HDTV.
