How many of you are using the monoprice component cable for your wii? I want one of these and am looking for your expert opinion. I am thinking about grabbing one of these versus the 30.00 original.

Thanks in advance,
Mike

For the $9.00 it would cost to by the cable from Monoprice ($6.00 for cable + $3.00 for shipping), you can't go wrong. It would cost more to drive to a store to pick it up.

I've always been happy with the products from Monoprice.

May as well go with Monoprice. It's not like you're dealing with HDMI stuff that is being connected to 1080p systems. I think a $9 cable from them will not have much discernable difference between their regular cables.

I use Monoprice Wii cables. They work just fine. I also use multiple Monoprice cables around the house- component, Cat5 and HDMI. They all work very good. No different than the higher price name brands I have collected overthe years.

Home much of a difference does the component cable make for the Wii? I'm using the in-box composite cable, and even on my new 42" Plasma it looks pretty good. A few blocks and artifacts, sure, but not as bad as I thought. Is it worth the upgrade?

For 9 dollars to go from 480i to 480p it's worth a try.

As the A1 Ads say, "Yeah; It's THAT Important."
