i concur. they're ~ $35 with tax, at my local wally world. i wired up my dads big*** tv with a colored component set he had on a tiny not-HD tv. (what makes me laugh, is he never watches th HD channels to begin with)

I'll be honest, i'm a bit of a technology freak

My scart lead alone was 100 and is only 1M in length, I did notice the difference in quality though

You are correct Jeff...but I don't think a quality difference will occur between mine from Hong Kong (which are gold plated just like the wal-mart ones) and the wal-mart ones themselves

Jeff the quality difference may come from the length also. Could be wrong here but the less it travels...the better the look. Mine are exceptionally long

No, not offended in any way whatsover. Usually this type of response is long from me because if I am just short with the answer, people usually say

--he's just jealous he doesn't have 1080p
--he has no idea what he is talking about. 1080p owns 720p.

1080p does indeed own 720p

The difference is actually quite astounding on my Sony Bravia 40" LCD with Sky+HD, even though the maximum output from Sky is 1080i.

I also have a PS3 but at the moment it is nothing more than a glorified Blu-ray player, and a very fine one at that.

I tend to use my Xbox 360 for gaming, not that I am a very big gamer, I just can't resist Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3 and Street Fighter IV.

Eh I guess I am the only one here who doesn't really care whether its 1080p or 720p. I only use those RGA plugs or whatever they are (the Yellow, White, Red ones)

They're called RCA or composite...

Its a bummer for you...even using component (RGBRWY) would make a huge difference

Really? Do you have a video cable for the XBOX that uses those AND is the TV on the input channel for Component?
