    2-0 out of 5 stars Extremely poor execution
    I bought this cable because I've long been a fan of Monster's products. My first thought on opening the package was that the cable itself is beautiful. Then I began to pay more attention to things.
    The audio and video segments are side by side which caused some dismay because I wanted to run sound through my receiver. If you pay another 40 and get the proprietary optical cable, you can wire your sound through a receiver but this would mean spending 100 on cables for your Xbox. I have no doubt that there is an improvement but I have doubts as to how detectable it will be. The package does say a separate optical cable is necessary but in my purchasing haste, I failed to notice this.

    I prefered to just get the standard HD kit from Microsoft for 17.99 and then hook up my own component cables and optical cable.

    I feel that a $60 cable for a game system should include an optical cable for sound. Requiring the purchase of a proprietary optical cable instead of allowing any optical cable to connect is another slap in the consumer's face.

    5-0 out of 5 stars If you can afford it...Buy it!!
    No need for a lengthy technical review here, otherwise this would sound too repetetive.

    I tried:
    *InterActs S-Video/AV cables and found them to be just basic cables. The main plug to the XBOX didn't even fit snug. I returned them immediately.

    *Microsofts High Definition AV Pack again just basic cables. No dramatic change whatsoever in video quality. Too many extra hook-ups that can cause video noise.
    I didn't return them because my brother bought them :) It sucks to be him right now.

    I finally decided to go with my original gut instincts, I didn't want to buy the Monster cables because of the high price, I also thought I could get just as good a picture quality with the less expensive versions.
    Boy was I mistaken when I hooked them up!! Like night and day!! Solid connections!! Superior construction!!

    Bottom line? If you are serious about console gaming as I have become, this is a direct connection into your XBOX, the only way to exploit your XBOX and HDTV's video capabilities.(Can't wait for true 1080i games to come out)

    To take advantage of the Digital audio side you would need to also purchase the Monster Game LightWave 100X. It plugs into the jack of the Monster Cable XGL400X and into your Dolby Digital Audio Reciever.

    You actually get what you pay for and Monster Game cables should be your final stop in the quest for the best cable as they are the legendary leader in Audio/Video and Gaming cables.

    ***Monster Game cables is the gaming side of Monster Cable***

    Hope this non techie laymans review helped.

    Overpriced Pseudo-Science Marketing
    Where I work, we once had a discussion about Monster cables and if they really do provide a better signal than a decent less-expensive cable.

    So, we injected a range on freqencies through the Monster and looked at it on both an O-scope and a spectrum analyzer. We then did the same for a cable of the same type, but not a so-called Monster.

    The Monster had *slightly* less attenuation, however the attenuation was not constant and the fluctuating attenuation introduced fluctuating harmonics. The differences between the Monster and the other cable, however, were along the same lines that one would expect to see from two similiar cables from different manufacturers.

    My conclusion is that Monster cables simply are not worth the price. As for the construction itself, I don't find it very durable. It gives the appearance of durability, but I was not impressed with how the connectors were applied. For as much as these things cost, there should be better workmanship.

    Professional cables can be had for half the cost of Monster cables. Monster cables are high-end low-end cables, where the high-end aspect is mainly in price. Its no suprise that one wouldn't find Monster cables being used in any professional sound studio.

    I believe the "better picture aspect" of Monster video cables to be attributed mainly to psychological factors.

    My advice would be to get the Microsoft HD AV Pack (which is what I'm using myself) for $20 and use the $40 you'll save on a game.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Overpriced
    I have a friend that uses these cables with his X-Box and HDTV. Being curious as to if they provide any improvement, I took my MS HD cables over to his house and we compared them with his Monster. We saw very little difference with the two sets.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Monster Cable VS Microsoft HD Pack
    I bought this cable after reading a few reviews about how good it was and others about how expensive and so on, well let me tell you the straight truth, I have a 27 inch Zenith HDTV hook up to my XBOX and had the Microsoft High Defenition Pack (component HDTV pack) hook up to it, and the graphics were superb, then I just took a chance and upgraded to this monster cable, boom....I thought I had the best picture but the monster cable gave it about 3+ points to the picture, (picture quality Microsoft HD Pack 10/10, Monster Cable 13/10) that's how I see it, the graphics look even cleaner, the colors look richer, and the darkness is gone (which was a problem with the HD Pack) well worth the 39.99 price, I guess there's a reason why it cost more! Great Item!! ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars These do not work with some Gamelink 200 X
    Don't buy these for the Gamelink 200 X, chances are that it won't work like it should.

    I've had my Gamelink 200 X cables for around 2 years. I happen to buy a 5.1 system, so I decided to buy the Lightwave 100 X toslink cable from Monster Cable.

    When I set everthing up and turned on my XBOX, I went to the audio settings only to find out that my Gamlink 200 X and Lightwave 100 X didn't unlock the Dolby Digital/DTS menu. I still only saw the "Mono, Stereo, Dolby Surrond" menu. Therefore, it only transmites the signal as PCM Stereo, and not Dolby Digital or DTS.

    I contacted Timothy Pryde from Monster Cable to see if he could send me a replacement 200 X cable. He did, and that cable didn't work either. So I contacted him again, and he sent me another 200 X cable, that one didn't work either to my surprise.

    After trying the second he sent, I just gave up, and asked him if he could just send me a Monster Video cable, so I could just buy Microsoft's Advanced AV pack. He said that was just fine.

    Right now I'm waiting for a UPS slip to be e-mailed to me so I can send back the two cables he sent me. And when he recieves the cables, he said he will send me the Monster video cable.

    He was really helpful, and all in all, I'm very happy with the outcome; he let me keep my Gamelink 200 X incase I need to use my XBOX with a TV set/system that doesn't have an optical input. And he said he was going to thurougly test the Gamelink 200 X cables to see what's the problem. He said he wasn't aware of this problem, and mentioned it as being "weird".

    I gave the Lightwave 100 X 5 stars because it is a solid cable that works when used without the Gamelink 200 X.

    Hopefully Monster Cable will find the problem and ship out newly modeled Gamelink 200 X cables.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Works Amazing!
    I bought this cable before reading all the reviews. Once I read them I became nervous that I was going to have many problems with it. What I found out when I got it is that most of the people who gave it bad reviews either didn't have an understanding of how it is supposed to be used, or didn't install it correctly. Maybe I'm wrong and there really was a bad batch of cables going around but here is some information that will help you avoid any problems with it.

    *Take off the clear plastic caps on both ends (If you don't you won't be able to get 5.1 surround).
    *Make sure everything is securly fastened.
    *Turn Dolby Digital and DTS on in the audio options menu of the Xbox.
    *When your Xbox is on with no game in it, it dosen't put out 5.1 even with the cable. So if you turn on your xbox once you've hooked the cable up and your reciver says its only going through 2 channels, don't panic, its supposed to do that.
    *Most importantly many xbox games don't support dolby digital (5.1). Infact most don't, and it is impossible to get 5.1 surround out of a game that dosen't support it. So check the back of the game where its says the number of players and xbox live info. If a green box says "In Game Dolby Digital" you will get 5.1 surround with this cable. If not, you will only get 2 channels and a sub. So check the game first.
    *May not be vital, but unplug your RCA audio from your tv or your reciver before you hook this up.

    I hope this information helps. Don't let the few bad reviews scare you from buying this. If used correctly it will give you amazing sound. It is truly worth the money.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Buyer Beware
    I am extremely happy with the image and sound quality of this product once I got things working, but beware, some of these cables are faulty.

    I purchased a new Monster Cable XGL400 and XGL-LW100 mid-December 2003 with a new Xbox and was surprised to find that the optical cable was not transmitting an audio signal when connected. I exchanged the cables for a new set and now everything works. I didn't change anything else, just plugged the new cable in and presto.

    It's discouraging that a company like Monster Cable would ship a product that had not been tested. Unfortunately, they are the only show in town so be careful and return the cables if you run into any problems. Don't spend the hours trying to trouble-shoot bad cables as I did.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Can't be avoided with a 3.5mm to TOSLINK cable
    It was suggested that the Monster XBOX video cables would accept a 3.5mm optical plug; this would be a great workaround as adapters to TOSLINK are significantly less expensive. Alas, the proprietary connector on the Monster cables is too small for even a 3.5mm plug and this product is the only way to pair a Monster video connection upgrade with a digital audio connection.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Cable does work for DTS and Dolby D! Here's how!
    Ok....I bought this cable and at first thought it was broken because of some of the reviews I have read here. Alas, I did more research and learned how to correctly hook it up and change my settings in the dashboard and on the dvd you are using. To transmit the signal to your receiver, read this site information ...This is very helpful during hookup. So I got Dolby D to work and was having trouble getting DTS to work. Then I read the review on here saying that DTS was not supported....totally untrue...just enable it in the dashboard. Then be sure to go to the dvd menu and click on LANGUAGES. Here you can select the audio...you want to select either DOlby d 5.1 or DTS 5.1 .....or whatever selection you are looking for. I hope this review saves people a lot of frusturation! ... Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars Great Picture Quality!
    The picture quality on the Monster Gamelink 400 is quite breathtaking, especially on my Mitsubishi 55" Wide-screen HDTV. Without going into technical details, this is by far the best way to hook up the PS2 to your television. Before purchasing, make certain that your television has Component video input AND that you have a receiver with fiber optic digital inputs. You will need a TOS-link fiber optical cable to transfer sound as yes, the GameLink 400 does not include sound. TOS-link cables are quite common and can be found for as little as [PRICE] for a 10' cable, a small price to pay for the huge increase in sound quality and to get the most out of your system.

    Visible to the naked eye
    The bright side:

    You CAN get better, crystal-clear picture quality. After using S-Video for several years and the going to component, you'll instantly notice colors on the TV you have never seen before. It's not easy to put in words, but if you are ever in an electronics store, look for a demo comparing composite to S-Video to component, and you'll be amazed. Paying the extra money to go to component is definitely worth it when it comes to your DVD's.

    The dark side:

    When it comes to DVD's, this component output is incredible. When it comes to your PS2 games... no noticable difference in my view. Maybe there is or was, but it didn't catch my attention like it did with the DVD picture.

    Is it really necessary or worth the money to get Monster Cables? In my opinion, the answer is NO. I did a test with a 3rd-Party Component PS2 cable...no difference whatsoever. It seems Monster Cable jacks up their prices with their unnecessary mumbo-jumbo features of how they were constructed with nitrogen/plutonium and the gold/diamond/kryptonite ingredients (I'm not being completely serious, by the way)...but, hey, cables are cables. I mean unless you have like thunderstorms, hailstorms, tornadoes and/or massive electromagnetic fields generating in your living room, yeah, you may need these high-quality, invincible cables. But in my opinion, there's no real need. So what if these quality cables last a life time? Name a single person in this world who would keep a PS2 for so long in his/her life.

    My advice is to just get the cheap cables. They are good enough. Or look for the Monster brand cheap like I did on eBay. Seeing that Component cables have three jacks, I've noticed many people make the mistake believing audio is included...NOPE. Those three Red, Blue, and Green plugs are for video ONLY. Go with component, but not Monster brand.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Not recommended
    I bought these cables because I have used monster cables and been happy with them. However, after a month or so of use, there was a short in the cables near where they attach to the Playstation. We had to tape the cables to the power cord in order to get a color picture. After about a week of this, they no longer would show a color picture at all. Save your money. The cables do an incredible job while they work but are not worth the money you spend on them when they break.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Wow, very much worth the $$
    #1, this is in my opinion a MAJOR upgrade if you play games at the very least a couple times a week and have a more up-to-date monitor/TV(preferebly widescreen). I recently upgraded my tv to the Sony KF-42WE610 LCD, this is in itself a big leap in color, detail, etc. However as an example, GT3..one of the best games ever made. Beginning credits with the Polyphony logo I can actually see the "grain" inside the engine walls just before the ignition and the engine starts. Replays look like real-time footage. In-game while playing if you are able to draft the car in front of you, you can see the sky's reflection of clouds off the car in front of you. Now, granted this detail has just as much to do with the TV that i have and the fact that i used Sound and Vision's HT setup DVD setup disc. Which brings me once again to my initial point, if you are not seeing results it is not the cable it is your TV, recommend upgrading to at least a flat screen CRT that is HD compatible. In order to take full advantage of your TVs capability, you should calibrate it using a DVD such as S/V setup DVD or Avia Guide DVD. Definitley worth the money IMO.

    You Won't Believe The Difference This Cables Make!!!!!!!!!!!
    I researched these cables a lot before I bought them and everyone seemed to say that they were better than the Sony S-Video cable. Let me tell, I KNEW these cables would make a difference but I never would have thought they would make SUCH A SIGNIFICANT Difference as they have! I have my PS2 hooked up to a relatively small 20' Sony TV and the difference is unbelievable! I put in Madden and the crowd and turf looked sooooo detailed---that was my test.

    I convinced my friend to buy them for his 27'-inch Sony TV and he's lovin' it. Also, I bought the Monster S-Video cables to use with my X-Box and my 32' Sony Wega TV and the picture and sound are excellent.

    The jump in quality from standard composite (RCA) cables to S-Video is quite significant. The jump from S-Video to Component is not as significant. If your TV has an S-Video jack, get these cables, PERIOD. People complain about the $40 price?!?!?!?! What the heck is wrong with you people?!?! It's only $40 and you're telling me you rather play $50 games on a $200 - $300 (depending when you bought it) System with crap--that's why they came Free with the system--cables that has inferior Picture quality?!

    BUY THESE CABLES AND EXPERIENCE YOUR PS2 LIKE THEY WAY IT WAS DESIGNED TO! You absolutely will not be disappointed. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars The Best Way to Hook your Gamecube up
    Why suffer with RCA video cables anymore? There is a better way to hook your game system up and it's with S-Video. I don't know all the techno babble and why S-Video is better. All I can tell you though is it is. The picture looks a lot better throught S-video than it does through a coax link or RCA cables. There are a couple of different brands of the cables you can get out there, but I'm impressed with these. The long 10 feet cables are great and sturdy. It has gold connectors which are suppose to help give a better picture.

    This is the best way to view your video game system. It's clear and crisper and provides a slightly better gaming experience. This brand of cables is kind of pricey, but is suppose to be one of the best. Just hook up on S-Video and enjoy.

    5-0 out of 5 stars S Video is good
    I am mostly writing this to correct a comment made in the previous review. S-Video does not enable progressive scan output, only component video allows that. The Gamecube component video cable is only available through nintendo's website. Aside from that, this is the best way to hook up your gamecube!

    4-0 out of 5 stars Definite Improvements
    I had recently purchased a Samsung LTN 325W flat panel television. As you may/may not know, LCD televisions tend to receive analog signals poorly. That was no exception when I used the standard composite cable provided with the Gamecube and hooked it up directly to the Samsung. I decided to give Monster's S-Video cable a try, and I was fortunately not disappointed. Using an S-Video cable separates the color and brightness of the video signal, allowing it to be processed cleanly and more accurately. In addition, it allows you to utilize the Gamecube's progressive scan output. The result, a sharper, more vibrant picture. Give it a shot with Mario Golf and Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker. There were definitely improvements. ... Read more

    Amazon.com Product Description

    The next generation of entertainment consoles requires the most advanced cable technology. With its 128-bit "Emotion Engine" drawing 75 million polygons/second, 300 MHz processor, and the ability to play DVD movies in Dolby Digital Surround Sound, the PlayStation 2 was made to blow away all the most serious gamers and movie enthusiasts.

    S-Video is the preferred high-performance connection for the Playstation 2, because it sends the video signal in separator chrominance (color) and luminance (brightness) channels for a picture that's richer in color, brighter, and sharper. It also gets rid of dot crawl, the annoying flickering along object edges. Monster's GameLink 300 S-video uses advanced technologies like nitrogen gas, 24-karat gold contacts, and 8-cut Turbine RCA connectors to ensure the best S-video signal possible.

    Monster's advanced audio technology delivers the full sonic performance of your PS2. Your PS2 is state-of-the-art in audio quality, but its sonic performance is only as good as the cable used to connect it.

    Maximize your gaming and movie investment with the GameLink 300's patented cable technologies. If you're like most gamers, you'll spend hundreds of dollars on games and movies. Why not play them with the best picture and sound possible? ... Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars Great Picture Quality!
    The picture quality on the Monster Gamelink 400 is quite breathtaking, especially on my Mitsubishi 55" Wide-screen HDTV. Without going into technical details, this is by far the best way to hook up the PS2 to your television. Before purchasing, make certain that your television has Component video input AND that you have a receiver with fiber optic digital inputs. You will need a TOS-link fiber optical cable to transfer sound as yes, the GameLink 400 does not include sound. TOS-link cables are quite common and can be found for as little as [PRICE] for a 10' cable, a small price to pay for the huge increase in sound quality and to get the most out of your system.

    Visible to the naked eye
    The bright side:

    You CAN get better, crystal-clear picture quality. After using S-Video for several years and the going to component, you'll instantly notice colors on the TV you have never seen before. It's not easy to put in words, but if you are ever in an electronics store, look for a demo comparing composite to S-Video to component, and you'll be amazed. Paying the extra money to go to component is definitely worth it when it comes to your DVD's.

    The dark side:

    When it comes to DVD's, this component output is incredible. When it comes to your PS2 games... no noticable difference in my view. Maybe there is or was, but it didn't catch my attention like it did with the DVD picture.

    Is it really necessary or worth the money to get Monster Cables? In my opinion, the answer is NO. I did a test with a 3rd-Party Component PS2 cable...no difference whatsoever. It seems Monster Cable jacks up their prices with their unnecessary mumbo-jumbo features of how they were constructed with nitrogen/plutonium and the gold/diamond/kryptonite ingredients (I'm not being completely serious, by the way)...but, hey, cables are cables. I mean unless you have like thunderstorms, hailstorms, tornadoes and/or massive electromagnetic fields generating in your living room, yeah, you may need these high-quality, invincible cables. But in my opinion, there's no real need. So what if these quality cables last a life time? Name a single person in this world who would keep a PS2 for so long in his/her life.

    My advice is to just get the cheap cables. They are good enough. Or look for the Monster brand cheap like I did on eBay. Seeing that Component cables have three jacks, I've noticed many people make the mistake believing audio is included...NOPE. Those three Red, Blue, and Green plugs are for video ONLY. Go with component, but not Monster brand.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Not recommended
    I bought these cables because I have used monster cables and been happy with them. However, after a month or so of use, there was a short in the cables near where they attach to the Playstation. We had to tape the cables to the power cord in order to get a color picture. After about a week of this, they no longer would show a color picture at all. Save your money. The cables do an incredible job while they work but are not worth the money you spend on them when they break.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Wow, very much worth the $$
    #1, this is in my opinion a MAJOR upgrade if you play games at the very least a couple times a week and have a more up-to-date monitor/TV(preferebly widescreen). I recently upgraded my tv to the Sony KF-42WE610 LCD, this is in itself a big leap in color, detail, etc. However as an example, GT3..one of the best games ever made. Beginning credits with the Polyphony logo I can actually see the "grain" inside the engine walls just before the ignition and the engine starts. Replays look like real-time footage. In-game while playing if you are able to draft the car in front of you, you can see the sky's reflection of clouds off the car in front of you. Now, granted this detail has just as much to do with the TV that i have and the fact that i used Sound and Vision's HT setup DVD setup disc. Which brings me once again to my initial point, if you are not seeing results it is not the cable it is your TV, recommend upgrading to at least a flat screen CRT that is HD compatible. In order to take full advantage of your TVs capability, you should calibrate it using a DVD such as S/V setup DVD or Avia Guide DVD. Definitley worth the money IMO.

    You Won't Believe The Difference This Cables Make!!!!!!!!!!!
    I researched these cables a lot before I bought them and everyone seemed to say that they were better than the Sony S-Video cable. Let me tell, I KNEW these cables would make a difference but I never would have thought they would make SUCH A SIGNIFICANT Difference as they have! I have my PS2 hooked up to a relatively small 20' Sony TV and the difference is unbelievable! I put in Madden and the crowd and turf looked sooooo detailed---that was my test.

    I convinced my friend to buy them for his 27'-inch Sony TV and he's lovin' it. Also, I bought the Monster S-Video cables to use with my X-Box and my 32' Sony Wega TV and the picture and sound are excellent.

    The jump in quality from standard composite (RCA) cables to S-Video is quite significant. The jump from S-Video to Component is not as significant. If your TV has an S-Video jack, get these cables, PERIOD. People complain about the $40 price?!?!?!?! What the heck is wrong with you people?!?! It's only $40 and you're telling me you rather play $50 games on a $200 - $300 (depending when you bought it) System with crap--that's why they came Free with the system--cables that has inferior Picture quality?!

    BUY THESE CABLES AND EXPERIENCE YOUR PS2 LIKE THEY WAY IT WAS DESIGNED TO! You absolutely will not be disappointed. ... Read more

    3-0 out of 5 stars power conditioner for home theater
    I have been using this powercenter for over a year and it works well. What I like best is that I don't notice any loss of signal quality when using the Coax filter. I have noticed this with other coax filters. The color coded and labelled outlets also are handy when moving/adding equipment. This way you know exactly what you are unplugging. A couple things I didn't like about the powercenter is that it is only rated at 15amps (~1800 watts). So if you have a 20amp circuit for your hometheater you are not able to draw all the power you could. This is probably not a big deal unless you have a lot of equipment and are running it all from the powercenter. Another item to watch for it that the coax input/output connectors have a tendency to loosen up. Then when I move the powercenter my sub woofer thumps loudly. Like it is shorting out internally. This is easy fixed or avoided by tightening the coax fittings. Lastly this unit will not take care of ground loop hums that can occur from improperly grounded cable feeds. ... Read more

    2-0 out of 5 stars Nitrogen gas-injected for clearest picture???????
    Okay, when i bought the stuff it said Nitrogen gas-injected dielectric insulator delivers maximum video signal strength for the clearest picture possible. 1) av jacks aren't the clearest, 2)i dont see a difference from my stock av cables and these monster cable ones. 3) The dolby digital works when you buy a cable, i mean what the heck, why would i wanna buy another cable, the fiber optic one plus this one plus tax is like $50. i just suggest you get the component cables, not theese av ones. the S-video ones are okay, but i wouldn't reccomend them. EVEN THOUGH monster cable has the best cables this one is a dissapointment.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Dont buy this product!
    I recently purchased the Gamelink 200X and the Lightwave 100X for my Xbox and I must say that I would like to know how can Monster claim that their hookup cables put out a dolby digital signal when the fiber optic cable (100X)plugs into an adapter which then plugs into the A/V cable (200X). This adapter has a headphone style connector which isnt capable of producing a 5.1 surround signal compared to a toslink connector. Therefore, an A/V receiver does not encode the signal as a dolby digital source, rather it interprets is as Analog/PCM or stereo sound. I must say that I have been extremely happy with all of my other Monster purchases. I have all my home theater components wired with Monster, but this product falls well below my expectation.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Dolby Digital did not work!
    For a company that prides itself on having the best audio and video wires monster made one mistake. They forgot to make sure their product works before they shipped it out. I hooked up my xbox to the game link 200x and monster audio light link 100x and everything video wise was fine. yet I could not turn on the dolby digital in the dash. It seems the xbox did not aknowlege the dolby digital output of the monster cables. For something that costs almost 15 dollars more then the offical xbox packs it should work better and more efficently, but maybe this once i should have gone with the cheaper cables.

    5-0 out of 5 stars remember
    the cable is good but what i liked about it is that it is like 10 feet long so i could play any where, thats what the box says, but you got to remember, all the ac cables are like half the size of the monster cable so if your planing on sitting far away forget it.

    1-0 out of 5 stars The cable doesn't work as advestised
    I bought this cable in conjunction with the XGL-LW100, and Dolby Digital simply did not work. This was not the case of me not setting the option in Dashboard - Settings, the XBOX simply did not recognize this cable as implementing Dolby Digital. This is very disappointing, I have been a loyal Monster Cable customer for as long as I can remember, and their product simply didn't work here. Microsoft XBOX support knows of these problems, and the tell you to get the Microsoft kits, so buyer beware on these Monster Cable solutions, they don't work on all XBOX's.

    I returned both the XGL200 and the XGL-LW100 for the Microsoft Advanced AV kit and got Acoustic Research fiber cable and gold plated RCA video cable and I enjoy Dolby Digital 5.1 and DTS from my XBOX now. One other thing to set straight is that the Microsoft Advanced AV kit includes the breakout box and basic cables to hook up S-Video and RCA audio, but not a fiber cable or RCA video cable. ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars monster cables for ps2
    who every says these cables are bad really must not knew what they are saying I have two ps2 one american one imported both use monster cables and a dreamcast which are all hooked up to monster cables for hdtv tekken tag is improved 75% I can see sweat coming from unknowns body and every thing behind the action as it should be see by true gamers so take it from a person that only plays imported games if you have the money go with monster

    3-0 out of 5 stars Fine for composite, but...
    Let me start by saying that Monster Cable makes fine products. Their A/V cables are the best in the business period as far as I'm concerned. That said it is really a waste of money to get this kind of cabling for Composite Video. If your TV accepts S-video or component video then I would definetly opt for the GL 300 and 400 respectively. But at this level the performance doesn't justify the cost.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Might be a good product if.......
    Maybe Im just a rock but how are you supposed to connect your system to both a TV and a audio reciever/decoder? There is not enough play in the end to allow the video cable to go to the TV and the audio cables to go to my sound system. So after trying to slice the individual cables apart with my kbar I finally gave up and just used regular AV cables.

    2-0 out of 5 stars There is a noticeable difference, but not worth the [amount of money]
    I got this Monster cable for my PS2 because of the Monster name. And that's just about all you'll get if you buy this set of cables to replace the ones that came with your PS2. Yes, the image quality and the sound quality are improved, but not enough to justify the [amount of money] that you'll spend for these cables. If you got money to burn, then get these cables. Else, the ones that came with your PS2 are good enough.

    5-0 out of 5 stars DVD playback relief
    Like a lot of people, I was more than a little disappointed with my PS2 when I brought it home only to discover the bloody thing wouldn't play DVD's worth a...well you know what I'm saying. I was experiencing what I would liken to a tracking problem on a VCR. Flickering, blurred images, etc. I had sent my PS2 back to Sony twice in an attempt to remedy the situation, and each time was met with more failure.

    I was at my wits end, until my brother pointed me in the direction of these cables. Now my PS2 plays DVD's like a champ. BUY THESE CABLES (Or any of the other monster products) You won't regret it. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great Product!
    I bought this as extra protection for my Samsung 56 inch DLP and audio system. Compared to using a normal surge protector, the Monster HTS 2600 indeed provided a clearer picture, cleaning up the snow and artifacts. I haven't really tested out the audio yet. It's good for peace of mind, as I want to protect my expensive investment.

    2-0 out of 5 stars What a Gimmick!!
    I did not know which unit to buy for my Home Theatre, so I thought what the hell, I'll buy all of them, try them and see which ones works the best. Not being surprised with the results, I saw NO significant change in sound or picture on the 2600, 3600, or the 5100. But, I still kept the 2600 as it did look nice on my rack and it does protect from surges on your coax lines as well as your AC outlets. If you want a really good surge protector, then this is what to get, but don't expect any changes in your sound or picture.

    5-0 out of 5 stars YOU SHOULD BUY THIS BEFORE ANYTHING ELSE.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Must Have
    Simply put this cable is a must have for the XBOX! In my opinion, Monster Cable is the best in the business for audio and/or video cables. Yes, they are a little pricey, but you get what you pay for here. The quality of this cable is top notch. If your TV has S Video Ins, trash the standard a/v cable that comes with the system. What a difference! You gotta get this cable. Peace.

    2-0 out of 5 stars not really worth the money
    Yes these are Monster cables. Yes Monster Cables are better quality than ordinary cables, but the difference between Svideo and Composite is not something to jump for joy about. The differences between Component and Composite is astronomical, and between Svideo is noticeable. If you get these cables, you won't really notice a significant difference in picture quality, (especially if your RCA cables are gold plated and top of the line). I have a Sony 27in Trinitron Television. Connecting my Xbox directly into the Svideo jack didn't do what I thought it would. I was looking for Computer like clarity, and didn't get it. Neither will you. If you ever purchase an HDTV with component inputs, the difference will be there. Until then, don't waste your money. It might be a good idea to get the Gamelink Optical adapter for Dobly 5.1 sound however. Oh, if you have component inputs on your television then buy the XGL400 not the XGL300.

    5-0 out of 5 stars S- Video first, games second.
    THe first thing i do when i buy any console is get a Monster S video cable, then i get the games. The thing with monster is its the best, but it cost alot. When first released cables cost $50, but now its reasonable. I think Monster goes over the board with the development of this thing. Just read the product info. Basically if your TV gots svideo hook up, get these.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Faulty product
    I bought the 300x cable two days ago. Since then I have been nothing but frustrated -- though my regular AV cable that came with the console still works perfectly, I get NOTHING from the Monster cable -- the ring on the Xbox just blinks green and orange, signifying a bad AV connection. No amount of fiddling has made a difference. On top of this, Monster's customer support was almost nonexistent. Xbox's support was helpful, but they confirmed what I suspected from the process of elimination. This cable is the problem. For the price I paid, you'd think I'd get a product that worked, and barring that, at least some service from the manufacturer! I'll never buy Monster again.

    5-0 out of 5 stars A Must Have
    I connected my X-Box to my 19inch LCD computer monitor via a ViewSonic VB50HRTV TV tuner using the Microsoft RCA jacks supplied with the X-Box, and the results were pretty poor.

    I figured I had wasted my money on the tuner, but a friend convinced me to try an S-Video cable, and customer reviews here on Amazon.com convinced me to try the one from Monster Cable.

    Wow and more wow! What a difference. If you have an S-Video ready TV or TV tuner interface, this Monster Cable is worth the added expense. It makes the image brighter, sharper, and more colorful. It improves the imagery in every game I own.

    I know it's hard to fork out big bucks for something as unsexy as a cable, of all things, but this cable is really worth it. ... Read more

    To start, this is a reasonably priced 3.3M (10ft) toslink-to-toslink cable. Compared to other higher quality and longer length optical cables and you'll see the difference in price. I use this cable but not for my connection to my PS2 since my DVD player functions far better than the console itself.

    Now, if you do NOT run your Playstation2 into a receiver/home theater system, it's not a wise decision for you to buy this since it won't serve any purpose for you. (For example, if you don't use this unit to watch DVD movies or pump it through your receiver for 5.1 Dolby Digital/DTS sound. (5.1 Digital Sound has yet to be implemented in a PS2 title.)

    5-0 out of 5 stars If Audio is important, this is a must!
    How important is sound quality to you? Are you going to use the PS2 for DVD movies and you already have a dolby digital or DTS receiver? If you answer yes to either or both of these questions, then this cable is a must have. It's as simple as that. First off, the only way you are going to get the dolby digital/dts sound and experience the DVD movies the way it should be, you'll need this cable. The sound quality was noticeable.

    For those who have a DVD player already connected to your dd5.1/dts receiver, you can still connect the PS2 to the receiver, assuming you have a free optical connection on your receiver. Most newer receivers should have at least one of each, a coaxial and a optical connection for digital sound. Mine have 2 of each and currently I have a monster digital coaxial cable connected from my regular DVD player to my coaxial port on receiver and optical connection from PS2 to my reciever's optical port.

    Playstation 2 currently does not have any available titles that are capable of dolby digital 5.1 surround sound, but there should be one coming. "The Bouncer" by Squaresoft should be the first to implement the 5.1 channel Dolby Digital surround sound and I'm sure there'll be more later on. This cable is definitely worth the money.

    2-0 out of 5 stars BUYERS BEWARE!!!
    I bought this cable to hook up my Playstation 2 with a Promedia DD-5.1 (Digital Decoder). The Problem is that the cable I bought didn't produce 5.1 Dolby Digital or DTS, just stereo. Read the reviews for the X-box Lightwave 100 cable; they are the same cable except for the color. Some people maybe haven't figured it out yet because they don't use a Digital Decoder, but all they are hearing is Stereo sound. Im pretty upset because I sent my Digital Decoder back to Klipsch thinking that was the problem, but it was actually the cable. By the way the customer service at Klipsch is simply the best, they produced high quality equipment, not like over at monster cable. So beware! If you are paying big $ for a cable shouldn't it at least work or do what it say it does?

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great Optical Cable for the PS-2 or for any optical device
    This is a great cable for the price. It will fit any toslink device like DVD players, CDRW players, or Dolby Digital Recievers. I am using 3 of these in my current home theater set-up. First of all it is 10 feet in length and sells for around $30. Similar Monster Optical Cables are about $50 which aren't labled for PlayStation 2. I have personally compared these and have found no differences in sound quallity. Second it is a pretty tough cable. My daughter practically used one for a jump rope, and to my surprise it preformed flawless.

    Something to note: I've found that about all games support this cable, but only with the PCM format (cd quality stereo). A few say they are presented in Dolby Digital 5.1, but this is only when a movie clip plays. I believe the PlayStation 2 hardware will not support dolby digital 5.1 during actual game play.

    5-0 out of 5 stars This is the way to go if you have a digital receiver.
    Using the optical-audio output jack on your PS2 is clearly a must for those that already have a digital home-theater receiver/speakers and also log a considerable amount of game-time every week. Unfortunately, I believe that this applys to a very narrow band of people.

    If you, like myself, meet both the above criteria, this is well worth the investment. Your digital receiver uses the PS2 audio output coming over this cable and digitially splits your game's soundtrack into six different signals. You will then have six different sounds coming out each of your six home theater speakers. Playing a very soundtrack-intense title like Twisted Metal Black at a loud volume over such a system incredibly adds to your gaming experience.

    You do, however, need to have a home theater system (centered by a digital receiver!) already in place to make use of these features. Mine costed $(...), but you can pay as little as $(...) for lower end systems (you can also spend over $(...)). Overall, it is not worth it to buy a complete home theater just to make use of digital output. But is well worth buying this cable to give you the sound capability it offers if you already have such a system in place.

    Connecting everything can be confusing, it is not as easy as plug the cord into two places. You must read your digital receiver manual, adjust the settings properly, and then do the same on your PS2 console. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars A Must-Have for the Monster Enthusiast
    Not having this surge protector is asking for trouble. It is small and convenient. It looks ultra-cool with its numerous lights going to work for you.

    The PS600 is specifically geared to protect your PS2. Monster is known for quality and this product is no exception. It will even protect you from online surges (for when the PS2 goes online in the future).

    This is definitely a wise investment.

    5-0 out of 5 stars THE BEAST
    The Powerstation blows away the competion by allowing you to play your video games in the most severe lightning storms and not have to worry about your system being destroyed. Allowing you to plug in up to six things is also great. You can plug in your T.V., console(s), speakers, lamps?, and anything else. This baby rocks. ... Read more
