The PlayStation 3 Component AV cable is really for two types of customers: those with a PS3 who have a first generation HDTV and those who have a Playstation 2 with a HDTV.

If you have a PS3, then your best bet is HDMI. It's all digital and provides the best clarity. In addition, it is only one single cable for video and audio as opposed to 5 separate connections. There would be no point to buy this cable for your PS3 and HDTV unless you have a first-generation HDTV that does not have a HDMI or DVI input (if you have a DVI input, you can buy a cable or adapter that allows HDMI to DVI connections).

If you have a Playstation 2, this cable is great to use for 480P (progressive scan output) or for usage with Gran Turismo in 1080i mode. Component is also noticeably clearer than S-Video or Composite out. If you don't have a HDTV though, the difference with component versus S-video or composite is not nearly as noticeable and may not be worth it.

Now onto the Sony component cable itself.

Pros:
- excellent quality
- the cable is very flexible and routes easily. It doesn't remain in a twisted or coiled form like some other cables
- the component jacks go easily into the TV. They are sized great and go in easily. I've used Monster-branded component cables for the PS2/PS3, and they require too much force to go in and out of the jacks. It felt like it was putting too much undue stress on the TV jacks.
- the MultiAV connector goes in very tight into the PS2/PS3
- cable rubber / plastic is high quality and doesn't feel sticky or smelly like some other cables.

Cons:
- the packaging is over the top. Sony used heavy thick clear plastic as the box. It's difficult to cut open, and an environment disaster.

I was concerned that I would lose some picture quality using component cable instead of HDMI. That was not the case.. the picture looks great! And the BlueRay picture is awesome. Was quite surprised how well the PS3 upscaled regular DVD's to HD.

I didn't realize that the one I have on my PS2 would work on my PS3 when I ordered this.

I was so impressed by the quality that I kept it and am currently using it (as opposed to using the PS2 one that I already had).

Well made - does the job. BUT if your TV supports HDMI use the HDMI NOT this...

I actually bought these cables to upgrade the picture on my PS2 (these cables work on both PS2 and PS3) to play it on my new HD TV. Wow, what a difference it made going from s-video to component cables. The picture is so much clearer and the colors seem nicer. I recommend these cables to anyone who wants to upgrade to better video quality on the Playstation 2 and 3. The quality of this product is top-notch.

I moved my older PS3 Fat system to an older Sony Plasma HDTV that only had one DVI and one Component Video input that supported HDTV format. I tried to use an HDMI to DVI converter cable so I could use the HDMI output from the PS3, but could not get it working properly with my TV. So, I was forced to use the Component video input on the TV, and thus bought these cables.

Bottom line - I was actually pleased with the quality of the signal this AV cable produces, I can barely discern much quality difference from the HDMI quality I was getting on my other plasma set. If you have no choice but to use Component video on your PS3, don't fret, these cables do a good job!

Thanks for reading.

I use HDMI for my PS3, but due to a lack of S-Video and RCA hookups on my 1080p HDTV, my craving for some of my old PS2 titles was left unfulfilled until I picked up this cable I do not own a PS2 backwards compatible PS3 ). The provided component AV cable is an official component cable designed for use on the PS3 and PS2 systems. The cable has R/L stereo audio and supports Y, Cb/Pb, Cr/Pr.

CABLE QUALITY
The included cable is surprisingly good quality. The main cable itself is heavy duty with plenty of length to it (10 feet). The connector heads are very high quality, and durable. The entire cable itself has some good weight to it. The only real negative I could see about the quality of the cable, is that after the 10ft of heavy duty, thick cable it splits off with the 5 connector heads; each connector using a thinner wire. Still, in the cable's defense, the thickness and quality of the connector wires are vastly superior to the official PS2 S-video cable Sony was selling back in the day.

IMAGE QUALITY
PS2 - It has been a while since I used my PS2 via S-Video, but the component cable did seem to have sharpened the color quality of the games nicely. These cables won't make the games look HD by any means, so don't be shocked when you still see jaggies... but what you will get is much crisper and higher quality image reproduction. It does help very subtly. I would say this is a must have if you plan to use your PS2 for PSX or PS2 games.

PS3 - There is a big downgrade in Image Quality using these over HDMI, but that is to be expected. HDMI makes a huge difference for 720p/1080p titles when compared to the 480i/p titles of the PS2. I would only use these for a PS3 if you do not have HDMI on your TV.
