    Hey, I'm a poor college student at the moment and I have an old TV (bought in 2000 or so)...I'm going to upgrade to HDTV when I graduate in May, but I thought that maybe I could help my picture a bit by getting S-Video cables for my current TV. Do you think it would help my picture quality any? Here is a link to the TV i have.

    Short Answer - Yes.

    Long Answer - You'll most likely notice better color separation which will result in a sharper image. However, don't expect anything spectacular.

    Yes. If your TV has S-video then by all means use it.

    There is a noticable difference between component and S-video. You will definetly get better detail and deeper blacks

    To be honest I doubt you will notice any difference. S-Video is only slightly better than Composite and of a TV that size it's not going to be worth the £££/$$$ - I would spend the cash on Beer.

    As long as it has S-video, yes, you will notice a difference. That picture is hard to see, and the description doesn't say anything.

    Yea, the TV definitely has an S-Video input. Its a pretty standard CRT TV. It works fine and has a decent picture.

    Thanks for the help everyone. I think I'll give S-Video a try when Best Buy releases the cheap React brand cables.
