The Wii Component Video Cable allows you to hook your Wii console system to a high-definition TV (HDTV) or enhanced-definition TV (EDTV) to view 480p progressive output. 480p progressive output displays at a higher resolution than standard 480i resolution. This component cable is specifically designed to provide the sharpest video and sound for your Nintendo Wii gaming system. Ultra thick and flexible PVC jacket with color coded connectors help to simplify installation.

Also, going from interlaced (RCA) to progressive (the "p" in 1080p) with component cables made games like Mario Kart, Smash Bros, and New Super Mario (games with a lot of movement) look FAR better.
If you wind up with a Nintendo Wii that comes with the red,white, and yellow connector, you definitely need to swap it out with this thing, you won't regret it.
36" Panasonic LCD. I am streaming animation and movies from my Wii using Amazon's Prime
Instant Video and wanted to improve my viewing pleasure with a sharper screen.
It does appear to have improved the definition although certainly not to true HD levels. After
all, the Wii can only render to 480p even with the component cable. I view my HDTV set from
about 10 feet and the images on the TV have improved clarity. Nice.
I have to say for about 5 bucks it was worth the investment from this company, Minisuit, and
can recommend it. The non-OEM component cable from Minisuit is 5.9 feet long and was one of
the reasons I bought from them. Some of the other cables from other companies are only
about 4 feet long.
So far it has been 5 weeks and there have been no problems of any type.

Most HDTVs or HD amps have Component hookups on the side or back (on the front as well)
and usually include the audio leads along side, which are included on this cable as well. I do not
know if your audio will improve with the component cables. Maybe someone can answer that
Once you have installed your cable you also need to to go into the Wii setup and change the
resolution or you will not gain any benefit from this component cable.
To do this:
Turn on your Wii. On your screen, Bottom Left, is a Wii Icon for
- "Wii Options". Pick that.
- Then pick: "Wii Settings", then choose
- "Screen", then,
- "TV Resolution".
- Then pick: "HDTV [480p]"
- "Confirm" your choice and Back out.
You are set to watch or play your Wii in 480p. So, have a good time on your upgraded Wii
for minimal time and money.
I was going to get the HDMI adapter but I read many reviews about quality issues, etc... and, in the end, decided to go this direction since my TV had component inputs... GREAT CHOICE!! The clarity is superb and honestly, I can barely tell the difference when I watch programs on Netflix...
ALSO The cables are long enough that I do not have a problem now that I have mounted my TV...
However, this Component Cable for the standard wii works great as a replacement for the situation for the WiiU. I can use the wiiU on one of my component slots instead and still get a great 1080p picture, or so my tv claims it's 1080p
I took this out of the package and immediately connected it from the wii to the television component plugs. It worked immediately upon turning on both units and after changing the wii settings from 480i to 480p, my resolution was wonderful. Streaming on netflix is much better as well! The cord is short, which is ideal because of the way my tv stand is set up. I don't like clutter and there is just enough cord to reach everything and keep it tidy.
The delivery of this item was incredibly fast. I ordered it yesterday afternoon and received it late this morning from OnTrac. Amazon continues to come through for me and so far, MiniSuit has giving me a quality product!
