Fast delivery, and this is a "must have" for everyone with a full-HD television. Much better than the original cable from nintendo, which makes the screen kinda blurry.

  Good quality Wii HD Component Cable at low price

I was very disappointed what the screen was like when I connected my Wii for the first time to my 42" HDTV. Saw this product at a really low price so instantly bought it. The difference is the clearer detail / graphics on the screen.

***Wii owners should change the screen settings to EDTV/HDTV in the Wii Settings menu after connecting this cable.***

I bought this item in the hope that the previous reviews only represented the experiences of the minority. Tragically I was wrong and this cable is just simply broken.

Bought it for Xmas to replace standard cable however it will lose video connection half way through a game and at times the Wii has booted up with no picture. Audio side is fine as I can always hear what is going on even when I cannot see it.

I would honestly advocate getting the official cable as it is worth spending extra for a cable that actually works

  Does What It Says!

Except, it also does what it doesnt say, causes tv to flicker and tear like mad! Maybe just me who only has this problem but think about being the next if you purchase this item. Go for the genuine lead from Nintendo (y)

  Great value for your money.

I was a bit wary of buying this due to how cheap it was. I have recently bought this item and it works great on most HD TV's I tried it on. I tried it on a Panasonic widesreen rear projection HDTV (spare room TV) and it don't work when you change your Wii screen settings to HD/TV, but does work on 50/60Hz. Must just be that TV!? Worth the buy though. Save yourself a few bob.

  Great quality product for the price

This product is a great alternative to the official Nintendo Component cable and works just as well.

If you do buy this product, I would recommend that you change the wii Screen settings to HDTV and change the sharpness of your television to the lowest possible for best results.

There are some noticable jagged edges around the images but it is still a HUGE improvement.

Works exactly the same as the expensive cable. I use this with my Onkyo 607 to upscale the Wii to 1080i looks amazing!

  It Works Fine

For 2 pounds I wondered if there was a difference between the Official Nintendo one which is 15 pounds. Since the Nintendo one doesn't serve tea I assume it is exactly the same.

At first I had trouble with it because I had put the cables into the wrong holes. The reason is because there are two red cables and one is audio and the other video so a switch around and all is working.

I'm not sure about difference except it looks a lot more saturated and colorful. I noticed an odd flicker around my character in a menu selection screen but in the actual game is seems fine.

Overall I'd get this over the official one.
