  Superb Quality HD. As good as Hdmi.

This is ideal for anyone who hasn't got the newer consoles with the Hdmi port as the Component Cable is as near as good as Hdmi as you are going to get. It is 1080i/p the same as Hdmi. The only difference in the two, apparently, is the sound quality. If your Xbox 360 doesn't have Hdmi, then I highly recommend you buy this. You will notice a massive difference in quality, especially on bigger TV's.

If your lead comes with the standard red,yellow and white jacks and the component red,green and blue, then no you wont need to buy this as you allready have it.
Just ensure that the switch on the scart side( the bit that connects to the x-box itself) is set to hdtv and go into ur system settings and display settings in your dashboard and choose the hd settings that work on your tv, mine was the 1080i.

i have had my core 360 for nearly 3 years..... i thought it was pretty god damn good, until i bought this HD lead! seriously i have been missing out!!! the HD is out of this world! i have not been getting the most from either my TV or my 360.... cant believe Mircosoft didnt supply one of these to everyone, as not having one does the 360 an injustice.... if you have a core console, and you dont have one of these, then you have, like me missed out on HD detail.... time to replay all my games in stunning Hi Def!!! Those of you who luckily get on of these in the box with the Pro, must pity us fools = ~)

I bought a 40" Samsung 7 Series LCD TV last week, so imagine how stupid i felt, when I realised my 360 was one of the older models that didn't have a HDMI connection. £17.99 later i'm sorted!! This lead is for all those 360 owners who have a HD TV with component connections on it, but don't have a HD connection on their 360. All you do is simply plug one end into you 360 (where you currently have a scart) and plug 3 of the coloured leads (red, blue and green) into your HD TV. If you don't have an AMP or DVD home cinema system, you also plug in the red and white audio leads, into the audio inputs on your TV. If you do have and AMP or Home cinema, simply leave the red and white leads out and plug an optical lead into your AMP/home cinema and the other end into your new £17.99 HD AV cable. You then go into your 360 dashboard, system settings, display settings and change it to 1080P. You are now playing your 360 in HD, and don't it look good!! Fantastic product and I can't recommend it enough!!!!

To the confused reviewer below:

This is the standard cable you get with the premium xbox 360 and the xbox 360 elite, however you only receive a standard Red/Yellow/White RGB lead with the arcade or older core units.

When I first bought a 360 I noticed the difference immediately and I thought that the graphics couldn't get much better. I was wrong. This cable can be used with an SD TV and is very easy to install. If you have a HD telly and no HD cable buy this and you won't regret it!

  Confused!

Just entered the 21st century kicking and screaming but isnt this just the standard cable you get when you purchase any xbox 360??

Excuse my ignorance!!

  An must have for your xbox 360!

I bought one of these recently and (sorry to sound cheesy but) it has seriously enhanced my 'gaming experience'. I am not a technical kinda guy when it comes to audio / video, but i wanted the best picture for my tv and xbox as possible. I read some reviews on here and elsewhere and i decided to go for this one. It was a great decision and i am glad i got this because the games look freakin amazing now. I have a new Samsung 32" flat screen TV and combined with my xbox 360 (arcade model) and this component cable gaming is better than ever. I haven't got a surround sound system, but i could say that with this cable it would kick even more ass. Buy with confidence and without hesitation.
