    If you have a TV that supports Component-in then you should definately go for it. It will give you the best possible picture your PS2 can give(much better that AV-cable that come in bundled).
    Images will be sharper and colours will be less washed out
    beeter contrast crisp images higher detail
    (all is there in PS2 manual)

    Someone's wankin ya mate I have two;)
    Seriously one is official sony and one is a monster cable brand.
    Beware the monster does not have audio cables so you also have to use the fiber optic audio with it.
    The sony cable has R/L leads for the audio also.

    Sony makes component cable, as well as Monster, and Psyclone (which is what i bought). And then there are a bunch of cheap crappy cables like you can buy on Ebay. If you want an improvement then spend the extra money and buy one of the three name brands listed. If you have a TV that supports component cables then you should see an improvement in picture quality for sure. It will not be huge but should be enough to make the cables worth getting.
