    hello

    I would like to know to opinions on different the Wii Component AV Cable. I am watching different cables, so that the original one is very expensive, and not if from other marks as madcatz or similars is seen well.
    In my country, this cable (madcatz) is in favor of 18 euros, but the original cable of Nintendo costs 30 euros, great difference. There are but cables, of different marks and prices, but not as to take in case it was bad.

    Some of you another Component AV uses Cable that is not the original one of Nintendo?

    Thanks in advance

    I can't remember where I saw the article but a site compared a set of cheap third party component cables to the official ones and there was virtually no difference in picture quality - go for the cheaper ones!

    Dealextreme.com have component cables for €8 shipped, but if you can't wait a couple of weeks for delivery Play-Asia.com also do some for a few Euro more once shipping is added.

    I ordered my component cable from Play-Asia and I'm very happy with it.

    Some people complain the genuine cable's audio plugs are on a too short of a wire to reach their AMP...

    See that hole in your wall?
    I bought a Nyko one for $15 on Newegg (the Madcatz one was $20). Works great.

    I bought the cheapest third party component cables I could get. $10 or so from Play-Asia around last December.

    Actually, I thought maybe it would translate back to something understandable in his language.

    I got the original ones...and I can't remember without going to check but I either had the distance, or I used a pair of extension audio cables I had to make the gap to my 5.1 system. I think it was crap paying that much for wire, but I saw em for $25 and was like what the hell. The sharpness even on my 480i tv was quite remarkable, easy to tell with the web browser as I could read like 3 text sizes smaller before it got fuzz again.

    Can you really see a different 480i to 480p? Is it worth paying $20 for?
    Honestly, I can't really tell the difference between Component, Composit and RGB visually.
    The difference in resolution (square, pixels) is much easier to see then colouring.
    Thanks.

    It's most noticeable with text. Text is much sharper with 480p. There are some comparison interlaced versus progressive out there. http://www.gamespot.com/features/6162297/p-2.html
