  Best cable for Wii

| | See all gravythief's reviews (2)

This will give you the best quality picture for the Wii with a compatible TV. The Wii settings need to be changed to take advantage of the better picture once the cable is plugged in.

I think it's always worth going for the official accessories despite the higher cost as they can be trusted to work best.

  Excellent Cable.

Having used a scart cable I decided to get the component cable aftrer reading so many reviews as it is meant to make the picture quality clearer on a HDTV.

Personally I dont notice much of a difference apart from the fact that the picture does seem slightly clearer and colours more brighter.

Nevertheless it is worth the purchase although it is a bit pricy.

  Excellant product!!

I wasn't very keen about buying this product as i didn't believe it could make much difference. But after reading the reviews, decided to give it a go. I'm glad i did because as soon as i got to see the result of having it, i had to eat my words! It improved the picture quality no end, i was amazed, and would highly recommend it. It has a great effect and doesn't cost a lot of money either!!!

  Excellent Product, You will see a difference

I was quite happy with the Wiis picture until i heard Nintendo made a component cable for even better picture on HD TVs.
As with all Nintendo accessories you pay a bit more but you never have doubts about the quality like you get with other cheaper makes.
Both me and my wife could tell a huge difference straight away and are very impressed with this cable, colours in Mario Bros really rich and bright, Mario Galaxy looks superb.
Im unsure what the previous review means about the cable being too heavy & reinforcing the tv; yes its thicker than the normal Wii scart but all component cables are. Its plugged into our flat tv without the need to reinforce (?) it, not pulling down on the connectors or anything.
You change the Wiis setting in Picture to the last option, which isnt available to select without this cable.
I'd give this cable 5 Stars as the quality is excellent, you will see a huge difference and its quickly delivered by Play.

  Increases resolution and definition but...

The assembly is too large and heavy and the cables after the splitter are too short, the positive side is the audio (red and white) are tagged together with a little clear plastic label marked 'Audio'. However its so heavy altogether it can damage modern, thin, TVs and the weight also pulls the cable apart inside the contacts leading to colours dropping out.

If you get it either reinforce your TV and cables, have a TV that has the connectors pointing downwards or use one of the cheaper products that is lighter.

  Fantastic Product

This is a great product, I would highly rate it to anyone. Really clears up the graphics and improves the viewing quality of the Wii.

Believe the previous reviews because they are true.
This cable gives your games a HUGE visual boost, its like suddenly being able to see properly!!!!
The colours are bright and vibrant and images are sharp, not dull/soft and muted like before.
Ok its still not proper HD quality like a Xbox 360 or PS3...........but viewed on my 52" Sony Bravia its still pretty good and well worth the cash!!!!!!!

I, like many people was hopelessly disappointed when our new Samsung LCD tv arrived and we plugged the Wii in. Grey, grainy, flickering - looked worse than on our old CRT tv.

After reading around the most common recommendation was to buy a component cable for the Wii. We went for the Official Cable so as to ensure quality.

I was very sceptical about the difference a cable could make - but the difference was instantly astounding. All graininess and blurring, GONE. Flickering, GONE. Colours super bright and rich - pin sharp.

Changing the display output of the console to HDTV really does give this a HD look - although the Wii itself isn't actually a HD console.

Buy this! It will give you the best possible picture quality that it is possible to get from your Wii. Your games deserve it. Super Mario Galaxy, Mario Kart, FIFA, Red Steel and Okami all look absolutely stunning.

Definitely worth the £17.99.
