Great product for Nintendo Gamecube
by: Anonymous    On: 2006-07-17

I've noticed a definite imnprovement in video quality with my Nintendo Gamecube. Only problem is the a/v leads are too short. The inputs on my a/v receiver are spread out too far and I really had to strain the leads to get them to reach. Other than that, this would be a worthy addition to your video gaming collection.
Nice, but go with the component cable if you got the $$.

This product will give superior picture over the standard coax and composite cables. If your TV has a S-Video input, but no compent input, you won't be disappointed with these. Try comparing the pictures by using the standard cables and then the S-Video cable. You'll really notice the difference (the colors will be more vibrant and the image sharper).

If you want the ultimate in picture clarity, get the component cables though. I don't think Monster Cable makes component for the GameCube (I wish they did), but you'll be able to find other manufacturers that make them.

I only give this product 4 stars because I'm using component cables and it definitely makes a difference over the S-Video cable. If Monster Cable ever came out with the GameCube version of the component cable, I'll most likely but it over my current ones.
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.


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!

Definite Improvements
by: flyfilipino1012    On: 2004-02-29

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.
