4.0 out of 5 stars Correction of an earlier review Oct. 14 2003
By C. Bono
I just wanted to clarify some "technical" information that Will from Chicago wrote in his review.
He mistakenly says that audio and video signals are separated in s-video and component video cables. This is totally wrong. Any video cable, be it composite, s-video or component has absolutely NOTHING to do with audio. Period. Audio is carried by completely different cables.
Composite (standard) video combines chrominance (color) and luminance (black/white) into a single wire. S-video separates these two types of signals onto two different wires, producing a sharper picture because there's no "bleeding" of data between the two.
Component video uses three separate wires to conduct luminance and two chrominance signals, producing the sharpest, most accurate pictures. Most direct-view televisions nowadays utilize component video as their "native" format internally.
Okay, so now that I made that little rant, I want to point out that these component video cables from Sony include a set audio cables. Just keep in mind that audio doesn't travel over the video portion of the cables.

3.0 out of 5 stars Works great, but be cautious when buying July 4 2011
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
I received the product and it is functioning completely normally. However, the product is not as shown in the picture - as mentioned in another review, it is not a product directly from Sony, just a knock-off made by some other company. The packaging is a plastic bag from the company GTMax rather than the box from Sony pictured. Again, while everything works fine, be aware of the fact you're not getting the official Sony product.

3.0 out of 5 stars Watch out - cable not from Sony! Dec 6 2010
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
The cable I received is not made by Sony as pictured/described in this item. It is a cloned one. It works though. If I knew the fact, I would rethink before buying it.

5.0 out of 5 stars saved me, psykottic ! March 28 2004
I did a google search, found this review, saw your comments on changing the settings to component mode (had a refurbished without manual ps2) and it saved me a trip to buy a new ps2!

3.0 out of 5 stars Great, BUT... March 15 2004
These cables are a must for anybody with a component video connection, but... Watch out!These cables to not stretch out by themselves to reach longer destinations. For instance my audio hookup is less then two feet away and the R/L connectors cannot reach because they can only stretch less then a foot!
Sony needs to make longer extensions. If your in my situation, try to look for another brand. If your not like me then buy this!

5.0 out of 5 stars Component A/V problems March 9 2004
Just a quick thought to anyone having problems with these cables...Make sure you go into the options menu on your PS2 (the one with the time & date options) and change the output from RGB to component. The picture will not straighten out until you do this. At least, this was the solution to the only problem I had with mine. Also, any game that supports this setup must be changed to progressive scan in the game's option menu as well. Hope this helps.

These and the Monster Cable Component Cables are the best cables you can buy better than S-Video better than the regular RCA AVs (yellow, red and white), in fact I would recommend if you have both the S-Video and the Red, Blue, Green holes on your TV to go straight to the Component (The Red, Blue, Green) cause it makes the scanlines less noticable making the image even clearer even if it's not a HDTV plus if you do get one you'll have the right cables to get the best quality especially now that some PS2 games offer Progression Scan support nearly completely eliminating the scanlines for HDTVs. Component Cables are almost a must buy for Xbox if you care anything about graphics cause nearly every game on it has some HDTV support and Component Cables are only cables that specially supports HDTVs.

4.0 out of 5 stars Component versus Composite/S Input and Image Sept. 8 2003
By WIll
To begin, I have a 27" Daewoo flatscreen, which comes standard with an S and Component input in addition to 2 other AV inputs for composites or other electronic devices.
We all know the difference between S and Component, S separates the RGB and audio bands, but puts all of the RGB in a single connection with separate connecter pins. The component breaks down all the RGB into single inputs, hence one for red, one for blue, and one for green, in addition to left and right audio.
So, does it make a DVD/PS2 game look that much better/different? Believe it or not, YES, it does, quite noticable. The colors are richer, the images are sharper, clearer, and it cleans up darker scenes with better line definition. It works very well and does exactly what it advertises. Is it work the $30? No, something this simple really shouldn't cost this much. Sony is to blame. But if you are truly that critical of movie viewing and the difference between stock and component cables is compelling to your eye, by all means, buy it. IF you have extra cash to spare, that helps too.
