Sounds like cheap cables, nothing to do with it being component or not.
Ummm....Not by a long shot.
I tested all three (composite, S-Video, and Component). I am proud to say that the Component give the sharpest, clearest, and best color production. And I bought the PS2 Component cable for only $9.99 @ BestBuy.
I connected it from my PS2 to HT Receiver to 24feet away Projector. The graphic/video look great. I tried the same setup and used Monster brand cables (the damn thing overprice). After comparing the pictures quality, I had to returne the overprice-Monster cables because I obtained the same picture quality, in playing game and view DVD, using a regular $9.99 PS2 component cable, and two 12feet regular 3RCA A/V cable ($12.99). That saved my hundreds of dollars. I have been using this setup for about 3.5 years now without any problems or degrade in the cables.
For all those who believe the higher the price the better the quality (especially in video/audio cables), it is still your choice. Certainly, you can show off your expensive cables to your friends/family member. That was what I thought too at first.
