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.
