    just wondering if its worth getting one, as i just use the regular video connector that came with my ps2 to connect. i've found a cable for a decent price.

    i have a lcd tv and the picture is a tad blurry, i've heard component cables imporve the picture quality alot. just wondering if anyone can vouch for this?

    I have componet cables for all the current systems.
    GC - Makes it much sharper image
    Xbox - Same as GC only a little better in some areas due to a better video card.
    PS2 - If you can afford it go for it. Just do not expect the cut sceens to look any better. I usaly find the game to look better and the cut sceens a little worse. But it also brings out any small problem and makes it far worse.

    Go for it. If you found one at a good price, and your TV will use, it, it sounds like a great plan.

    arrived the other day, plugged it in, was really suprised at the difference. the picture looks so much sharper and my ps2's graphics arent as bad as i thought!

    i was thinking the fuzzy gfx were just ps2 crapness. noooo! it was my lame scart plug.

    Sweet.
    So now you'll be able to see me beating your ass up in MvsC and you won't be able to blame it on the fuzzy graphics. :p

    There should be some sort of law against using old cables on high-end TVs.
