I once bought the monster component cables for PS2. I was impressed with the quality of the graphics improvement. However, it broke about a year ago and I've been using s-video since.

I don't really want to shell out $70 for a PS2 cable. IS there a place like monoprice where I can get a PS2 hookup? (no, monoprice does not carry these cables).

Thanks!

I've never heard of an HDMI cable for a PS2, component was the best as far as I know. Sony makes a component cable that IIRC is cheaper than the Monster and should work just fine. Should be around $20.

There is no "best", best is what's best for you...

Have you tried searching first?

A Mad Catz PS2 component cable is also less than $20.

Only component, no HDMI for PS2.

toysrus.com had the component cable for under $20...they also had the $10 google checkout thing (don't know if they still do)

My 60GB PS3 died from over heating - I have a strong feeling Folding didn't help

found component for 9.99 through target online I think. It was awhile back so YMMV.

Monoprice does have a component solution for you. It's $12.78 and it'll work for Wii, Ps3, 360, and Ps2 (AV out is the same for both PS3/PS2). And its 8ft long.

monoprice is very fast. I just got my cords yesterday. Great price and fast shipping.

How big a difference between component and svhs?

Component vs. S-VHS (s-video) is huge.

I think I bought my component PS2 cable from ebay for $5. It worked great (on the PS3 also, until I upgraded to HDMI).
