Premium Component & S-Video Cable
The cable market is a lucrative business in
the gaming world that range from extremely cheap to extremely expensive.
Fortunately for gamers across Australia, Futuretronics continues their
trend of high quality affordable gaming cables and their latest addition
to the market is their XBox 360 Compatible Component & S-Video Cable.
Our first impressions of the XBox 360
Component & S-Video Cable was the quality of the product which featured
a rather sturdy and thick cable. This ensures that the inside cables are
protected from outside noise and interference which in turn effects the
picture quality and can cause a variety of other problems such as
ghosting and washed out colours. Another feature of the cable is that
the plugs are gold plated which also improve the overall image quality
that is generally found on mid-range to expensive cabling.
The Futuretronics XBox 360 Component & S-Video Cable also supports two
different video formats with Component being near the high end of the
spectrum (Digital televisions) and S-Video for standard televisions.
Installation & Quality
The cable itself was easily connected to
our XBox 360 console and our LG high definition TV and upon booting up
our XBox 360, we automatically noticed a difference to the picture
quality when compared to our standard component cable. The images were
now crisper and sharper with colours appearing more vibrant and
We also tested the S-video aspect on an
older television, however the differences were minimal which may be an
indication of the television, rather than the cabling itself. Either
way, for $49.95, the cable is definitely an investment for all types of
In conclusion, if you are looking for an affordable and well made
component cable for your high definition TV then we would recommend the
Futuretronics XBox 360 Component & S-Video Cable. Definitely a worthy
accessory for your console, especially those who have purchased the
standard edition of the XBox 360 and wish to experience HD TV!
