    Amazon.com Product Description

    Monster Cable's Monster Standard THX component-video cable offers a THX-certified video connection between, for instance, progressive-scan DVD players and compatible televisions. Its four-foot length is perfect for moderately long runs from source to monitor (or AV receiver) without undue signal loss.

    DVD players, satellite receivers, and other devices use high-performance delivery methods like S-video, component-video, and digital-audio transmission, and high-quality cables are more important than ever for getting the most out of these technologies. That's why THX, a leader in sound-quality certification for movie theaters, collaborated with Monster Cable to create connection standards specifically for home theater. The cables supplied with your entertainment components don't meet Monster THX standards. Some of the connections you need don't even come in the box, including component-video.

    Although Monster Standard THX cable doesn't feature many of the advanced technologies found in its higher-performance product lines, it still packs plenty of Monsterous features, like high-quality gold-tip connecters and color-coded tips for easy, error-free hookup. (And dig the stylish, futuristic connector design inspired by Lucasfilm's Star Wars epics!) ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars great
    the cables are great they are very strong but bendable at the same time also look cool and most importantly the give a great piture actualy i havent compared it to anything bet i had a component for my ps2 now i have it for my xbox and the the dvds look a lot better with monster cables for my xbox than normal sony component hook up for my ps2 the cables are overall great and the colors really look more real and alive and if u notice with normal av cables u see color mixing and the backgrounds look fuzzy (kinda) and component get rid of 99% (rarely u see a very little color fade or something in a couple of movies in the wrold) and it uses 3 anlog cables for video instead of the 1 anlog that is standerd so u colud say it makes the picture 3x better

    5-0 out of 5 stars Why are there no other reviews?
    Why hasen't any else reviewed this great product? Anyways I got my component cable a few days again and can certainly say I notice a great improvment in video quality over my previous S-Video connection. You can certainly tell the difference in the action packed DVD's like Xmen,Spiderman,Terminator and such. But in movies like Bruce Almighty you may not notice the difference.
    These are definitely worth the cost. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Does It REALLY REALLY matter!
    I gave it 5 stars because I don't own it an wanted to be fair,but I do own cabletogo 2m dvi cable and it's a spectacular picture I have on my toshiba 30hf83 30" hdtv which is slightly better than the component I had hooked up earlier.My point is the cabletogo I believe is under $15dls and has a higher data transmission rate which I believe is above 9mbps dual link and the monster above 5mbps,so it's just something to think about,why waste $99dls.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great Cable but I cannot use it now!!
    I have a fairly new HDTV system I bought back in January. I have a JVC 56" rear projection HDTV and am getting my HDTV source from Insight Cable through a Motorola HDTV receiver. I experimented with component video connections when I first bought the TV but later tried the Monster Cable DVI400. Wow what a difference! DVI is the ONLY way to hook up HDTV in my opinion. The colors are brighter and pictures are sharper. Like all Monster Cable products this is made of very high quality materials and it looks nice too. I cannot believe some of the notes I have seen on the internet from people that feel the component video connection is better. The quality of the DVI connection is so superior that my cable company has decided to turn off the DVI output on my cable box. They claim the quality is so good that pirates could make copies of movies through the connection! They claim that this is a new FCC law even!

    2-0 out of 5 stars does it really matter?
    it is a cable for transferring digital signal... in the digital world, the smallest bit of information is either 0 or 1. in terms of electricity, it is like, either 0 volt or 5 volt. So unless the cable is so lousy that the device cannot tell 0 volt from 5 volt, in which case a gold or platinum plated digital cable is not going to do any good. it either works or doesn't work. there is no "in between".

    this is similar to DTV or HDTV -- either you get the picture or you don't. If you do, it is going to be prestine. If you don't, then there is no picture at all. Note that in this case, the analog (non-digital) portion of equipment still makes a difference, such as the antenna or the speaker cable that is non-digital.

    so a [$$$$$] DVI cable shouldn't make any difference than a [$$] one.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Diminishing returns?
    I bought this MonsterCable DVI cable to connect my DVD player to my new HD TV. I was certainly impressed with the image quality and the sturdiness of the cable, though honestly I found the connector pins a bit finicky.
    Soon my HD system grew and I needed a way to better utilize the Sony TV's single DVI input, so I bought a very nice Geffen 4 port remote controlled DVI switch. It came packaged with 4 rather generic 6' DVI cables, which I used to connect the components to the switch, saving the MonsterCable for the switch's output to the TV.
    The result was great in all cases. That's when the scientist in me took over. I started swapping cables like mad, and asking any poor soul who happened to be around to identify the best picture. The result? No one, myself included, could discern the least little difference in image quality from cable to cable.
    Being that the generic DVI cable is one fourth (!) the price of the brand name, obvious questions about diminishing returns are raised. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars A definite buy!
    I do have to admit that being a smart shopper I was hesitant to shell out so much money for "just a cable". But upon the advise of a coworker who said "now that you have a big screen TV you HAVE TO GET A COMPONENT VIDEO CABLE". And right he was. I definitely notice a difference in picture color (not necessiarly in quality but the colors are cleaner and more true to life) when playing DVD movies. I would definitely advise investing in a good cable!

    5-0 out of 5 stars top of the line product
    It may sound somewhat surprising, at first glance, that a short piece of cable between your TV and DVD player can make a noticeable difference in the picture quality, but once you compare a cheap cable with a good one, you'll see that there is a difference! My DVD player came with a very cheap-looking cable with three RCA connectors on each side, and I used this cable to hook up the DVD player to the component (RGB) input of my TV before doing anything else. I dismissed this cable immediately as the picture was much noisier than I expected. A $15 S-Video cable performed better. However, I had to adjust the settings in video equalizer of my DVD player to increase color saturation, and also had to decrease sharpness of the picture to make noise unnoticeable. Finally, I bought the Monster cable (don't tell my wife about it!). This cable resulted in a perfectly sharp and clean picture without any adjustments in the CD player. Due to double-shielding of this cable, there was no sign of the noise that I saw with the S-Video cable either.

    I do not know if there is a noticeable difference between this cable and a less sophisticated one that may cost half of its price. I guess, everything depends on the kind of TV and DVD player you are using. But I can say for sure that my experience convinced me that there is a tremendous difference between this high-end cable and those from the very low end.

    The last thing: I do not think that it makes any sense to use such an expensive cable for a connection other than component video (Y + two color difference channels), also called "color stream" by Toshiba. If you do not have a component video input, use either S-video, or composite video (Video+2 audio connector). In the latter case (or if you need a cable to connect your VCR) a cheaper cable would do. This one is worth the money only if you do not want to settle for anything less than perfect.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great Quality just Way Overpriced!!
    These and all other brand cables from MC are all overpriced including these. I have a 20" JVC I'Art television and I have my DVD connected through component. I have used Monster Cable component cables and they put out pretty much the exact same picture as my newer PHILIPS brand component cables that I only had to pay about [$$$] or so for. The PHILIPS are also shielded and gold plated and all that good stuff. So buy these MC component cables if you dont care about price, but otherwise buy PHILIPS brand that are way cheaper and put out the same quality picture.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great Cable at Good Price
    Recently bought a Analog Big Screen TV. Switched from S-Video to Component cables. There is a big difference. The picture looks more film like with Component cables. Do not hesitate to upgrade. Stay away from cheap Wally World brands. You get what you pay for. The S-Video cable I used was Monster Cable M1000 sv.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Welcome to the world of COMPONENT VIDEO!!!!!!!

    4-0 out of 5 stars Great cables, horrible price
    I haven't actually owned these Monster Video 2 Component cables, but I did own the Monster Video 3 Component cables which run for about 100 bux for the same length. If you're going to run all over these cables and pound them with hammers then these cables are wonderful. But if these cables sit quietly behind your audio and video equipment then these cables function as well any other component video cable.

    Whether or not you really see a big difference in picture quality will depend on your setup. For example, my TV is a JVC rear projection that upconverts all video to 1080i so that the use of component connections at 480p is not a very big difference in picture quality. And of course your dvd player should have progressive scanning if you want to capitalize on the benefits of component connections to begin with. Also, having the same manufacturer for your TV and DVD player tends to yield better results in general.

    The point being that all of these others factors and more will determine the quality of your video much more so than any 'special' cables. The cables do no work, they are just a medium that signals must pass through. Hence, the better cables are the ones that preserve the 75 ohm signal without distortion. But this is precisely the problem with ALL component cables that use RCA interconnects. The physics of the RCA connection do not allow for the ideal 75 ohms to pass through unmolested by interference, regardless of how great the cable is or how much it costs. In fact, the implementation of RCA interconnects was never intended for video use. It began as an audio solution and manufacturers gradually implemented it instead of the BNC interconnect because of cheaper costs and user familiarity.

    In the end, I don't think these more expensive cables make a noticable difference in performance. For that matter, I don't see why people prefer to use toslink (optical) over digital coaxial. The toslink is much more unstable and sensitive to movement even though it's not susceptible to electrical interference since it uses light (but using light also requires the hardware to do more work in translating the signal). Point being that the audio quality is identical, but the toslink just costs more. Here again, the cable is not 'special', it only acts as a medium for signals to pass through, your actual equipment does all the work. So the ultimate question: Is it justifiable to spend so much more money on these high-end cables? Sure it is, in the same way some people choose to buy a Rolex over a Timex.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Buy the Cheap ones!
    Using the component input on your TV can make a huge difference in picture quality, but the differentce between the lower priced monster cables and the most expensive monster cables in not noticeable. Save yourself $50 and buy the cheap ones.

    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

    I used to wonder why spend the extra money. It's just cable after all. Well, I wonder no more. I have an older TV and a decent but older receiver. The sound was okay but I was wanting something better. I bought a couple of these cables, and S-Video cable and 16 gauge Monster speaker wire.

    My system is AWESOME now. I was truely impressed at what a difference a $50 (or there about) investment in cables made.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Oops, wrong size
    I bought this set in an attempt to improve the quality of analog to DVD using a Canopus box. The problem was, the cable jacks were too large for my VCR's component output. They fit in the jacks, but were loose would only provide a connection when I jiggled them about. I've never had this problem with this type of cable before, very disappointing.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Um... It's Just WIRE and CONNECTORS
    I've purchased a lot of cable recently including S-Video, Component Video, and Optical Cable. I purchased this short cable to run data from my progressive scan DVD player to my Denon 987. And to be perfectly honest, the stuff Sears sells in their audio/video department works just as well as Monster and costs quite a bit less. Mind you, I'm not anti-Monster, heck my house is filled with 100s of feet of 16-gauge Monster THX cable. But you can get really good cable for a lot less if you look around. Try Ebay for starters...

    4-0 out of 5 stars S-Video vs. Component on a 14" Flat Screen
    I can't believe this item hasn't been written about more often. At the time of my purchase it was ranked in the top 450 in sales at Amazon.

    As for the cable, I purchased it mainly out of curiosity--to see if there really was an improvement over S-Video. I'm currently using a 14" JVC I'Art Flat Screen TV and a Toshiba SD3950 DVD player.

    To my surprise there is a slight difference in look between the two when viewed on a small monitor. The S-Video is slightly washed out whereas the Component cable deals better with the contrast. Without using any of the DVD presets (e.g. "Enhanced Black Levels") shawdows and dark areas seem richer and the colors pop out a little more--although its probably not as noticeable to the average consumer.

    For myself, who is really picky about the look, it was worth it at such a cheap price. For most conusmers using a 14" screen it won't matter and using an S-Video cable along with tweaking the DVD presets to "Enhance Black Levels" they should be fine.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Very Happy
    This Component Video Cable is one of the better home electronics purchases I have made. I bought a Toshiba 51" HD-ready big screen, an Onkyo Theatre-in-a-box, and a Toshiba progressive Scan DVD player. I used these cables to connect the DVD player to the TV for picture (and optical cable for sound).

    There is quite a noticable difference in quality to the S-video output I was using prior to purchasing this cable. I would have to say that the picture is better than movie theater quality. You absolutely have to get this cable if you are considering purchasing a progressive scan DVD player and an HD or HD ready TV (plasma too for that matter). This cable lets your system be the best it can be, and will probably remain top-notch as long as component video is the best AV solution. ... Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars Great cables, horrible price
    I haven't actually owned these Monster Video 2 Component cables, but I did own the Monster Video 3 Component cables which run for about 100 bux for the same length. If you're going to run all over these cables and pound them with hammers then these cables are wonderful. But if these cables sit quietly behind your audio and video equipment then these cables function as well any other component video cable.

    Whether or not you really see a big difference in picture quality will depend on your setup. For example, my TV is a JVC rear projection that upconverts all video to 1080i so that the use of component connections at 480p is not a very big difference in picture quality. And of course your dvd player should have progressive scanning if you want to capitalize on the benefits of component connections to begin with. Also, having the same manufacturer for your TV and DVD player tends to yield better results in general.

    The point being that all of these others factors and more will determine the quality of your video much more so than any 'special' cables. The cables do no work, they are just a medium that signals must pass through. Hence, the better cables are the ones that preserve the 75 ohm signal without distortion. But this is precisely the problem with ALL component cables that use RCA interconnects. The physics of the RCA connection do not allow for the ideal 75 ohms to pass through unmolested by interference, regardless of how great the cable is or how much it costs. In fact, the implementation of RCA interconnects was never intended for video use. It began as an audio solution and manufacturers gradually implemented it instead of the BNC interconnect because of cheaper costs and user familiarity.

    In the end, I don't think these more expensive cables make a noticable difference in performance. For that matter, I don't see why people prefer to use toslink (optical) over digital coaxial. The toslink is much more unstable and sensitive to movement even though it's not susceptible to electrical interference since it uses light (but using light also requires the hardware to do more work in translating the signal). Point being that the audio quality is identical, but the toslink just costs more. Here again, the cable is not 'special', it only acts as a medium for signals to pass through, your actual equipment does all the work. So the ultimate question: Is it justifiable to spend so much more money on these high-end cables? Sure it is, in the same way some people choose to buy a Rolex over a Timex.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Buy the Cheap ones!
    Using the component input on your TV can make a huge difference in picture quality, but the differentce between the lower priced monster cables and the most expensive monster cables in not noticeable. Save yourself $50 and buy the cheap ones.

    These cables are super with my new DVD player. There is absolutely no interference from my other home theater equipment. The picture is soo clear, and vivid. The cables themselves are really made well, they could hold up 100 pounds of weight no doubt. If you get these Monster cables you won't be sorry.

    You shouldn't have any doubt in your mind about buying these superb video cables. They provide the highest quality picture on your tv. Since there are three cables instead of one, more information, can be sent to the tv with better detail.

    5-0 out of 5 stars A definite buy!
    I do have to admit that being a smart shopper I was hesitant to shell out so much money for "just a cable". But upon the advise of a coworker who said "now that you have a big screen TV you HAVE TO GET A COMPONENT VIDEO CABLE". And right he was. I definitely notice a difference in picture color (not necessiarly in quality but the colors are cleaner and more true to life) when playing DVD movies. I would definitely advise investing in a good cable!

    5-0 out of 5 stars top of the line product
    It may sound somewhat surprising, at first glance, that a short piece of cable between your TV and DVD player can make a noticeable difference in the picture quality, but once you compare a cheap cable with a good one, you'll see that there is a difference! My DVD player came with a very cheap-looking cable with three RCA connectors on each side, and I used this cable to hook up the DVD player to the component (RGB) input of my TV before doing anything else. I dismissed this cable immediately as the picture was much noisier than I expected. A $15 S-Video cable performed better. However, I had to adjust the settings in video equalizer of my DVD player to increase color saturation, and also had to decrease sharpness of the picture to make noise unnoticeable. Finally, I bought the Monster cable (don't tell my wife about it!). This cable resulted in a perfectly sharp and clean picture without any adjustments in the CD player. Due to double-shielding of this cable, there was no sign of the noise that I saw with the S-Video cable either.

    I do not know if there is a noticeable difference between this cable and a less sophisticated one that may cost half of its price. I guess, everything depends on the kind of TV and DVD player you are using. But I can say for sure that my experience convinced me that there is a tremendous difference between this high-end cable and those from the very low end.

    The last thing: I do not think that it makes any sense to use such an expensive cable for a connection other than component video (Y + two color difference channels), also called "color stream" by Toshiba. If you do not have a component video input, use either S-video, or composite video (Video+2 audio connector). In the latter case (or if you need a cable to connect your VCR) a cheaper cable would do. This one is worth the money only if you do not want to settle for anything less than perfect.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great Quality just Way Overpriced!!
    These and all other brand cables from MC are all overpriced including these. I have a 20" JVC I'Art television and I have my DVD connected through component. I have used Monster Cable component cables and they put out pretty much the exact same picture as my newer PHILIPS brand component cables that I only had to pay about [$$$] or so for. The PHILIPS are also shielded and gold plated and all that good stuff. So buy these MC component cables if you dont care about price, but otherwise buy PHILIPS brand that are way cheaper and put out the same quality picture.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great Cable at Good Price
    Recently bought a Analog Big Screen TV. Switched from S-Video to Component cables. There is a big difference. The picture looks more film like with Component cables. Do not hesitate to upgrade. Stay away from cheap Wally World brands. You get what you pay for. The S-Video cable I used was Monster Cable M1000 sv.

    Amazon.com Product Description

    Monster Cable's Monster Video 2 (MV2) component-video cable uses high-purity, high-density copper stranding for lower signal loss and heightened protection from video noise--both of which are real considerations in complex, high-resolution home theaters, especially over a six-foot cable run like this cable provides.

    The cable's double shielding blocks most electromagnetic and radio-frequency interference, while its low-loss insulator delivers efficient signal transfers from your satellite receiver, DVD player, gaming console, or camcorder.

    The MV2CV's straight-cut turbine RCA and split-tip pins provide excellent contact pressure at both ends, while its corrosion-resistant 24k gold contacts ensure high signal integrity. If you've already adopted the sensible habit of cleaning your cable contacts with alcohol every so often, you'll find you can afford to do it a little less often when using gold-tipped interconnects.

    5-0 out of 5 stars More room for more connections!!!
    I know that most people say that it makes no difference for the picture quality, but I purchased this cable for two separate reasons:

    1. With the digital cable box my cable company offers, you would have to switch inputs to go from a high definition channel to an analog channel. This is mildly annoying. The other connection possibility is the DVI interface. This eliminates the need to switch feeds since the cable can send both signals to the TV.

    2. By using the DVI connection on the back of the TV, you allow more space for component cable connections. For those of you who have video game systems where you can use the component connection, but didn't have room because of the need for the high definition decoder, now you have free space!

    This cable has made everything so much easier! Once again, way to go Monster!!

    2-0 out of 5 stars does it really matter?
    It is a cable for transferring digital signal... in the digital world, the smallest bit of information is either 0 or 1. In terms of electricity, it is like, either 0 volt or 5 volt. So unless the cable is so lousy that the device cannot tell 0 volt from 5 volt, in which case a gold or platinum plated digital cable is not going to do any good. It either works or doesn't work. There is no "in between".

    This is similar to DTV or HDTV -- either you get the picture or you don't. If you do, it is going to be prestine. If you don't, then there is no picture at all. Note that in this case, the analog (non-digital) portion of equipment still makes a difference, such as the antenna or the speaker cable that is non-digital.

    So an extremely expensive DVI cable shouldn't make any difference than an inexpensive one.
