    It is not a normal scart lead juboy - it is for a PS2 and it takes away the green tint when using RGB on the dvd playback, and it enables auto-switching on a w/s tv, as well as improving video quality.

    Sure, I realised it was for a games machine but at £15 is it really the 'ultimate'? I don't see how something that cheap can be that good.

    Why? What is wrong with the Blaze one? Five minutes ago you didn't even know what it was, now you say that it can be bettered? That was a quick demo! :D :p

    Where did I say there was something wrong with it?

    Where did I say I didn't know what it was? You appear to have assumed I thought it was a regular AV scart (which, naturally, would be discussed in the Gaming Hardware forum).

    'Ultimate' should mean 'the best that can be made'.

    What I AM saying is that if it can be sold for as little as £12.99 (with the retailers margin and the manufacturers margin in there -with, potentially a distributor or third party on top of that) then it can't be particularly well made from top quality materials.

    The cable carries RGB video and audio signals with two scart connectors and phono connectors.

    All that for £12.99 and that's the pinnacle of what can be done?

    And are you really suggesting that it CAN'T be bettered?

    lol Gamers have to remember that in the world of AV a £15 Scart lead is cheap ^_^ Many go for £60/m and thats being modest. Anyway for the PS2 I think its a good scart lead if you have to get rid of the macrovision when using it as a DVD player. As for increasing the image quality... That depends on many factors (such as correctly calibrating your TV etc)... But the image wuld certainly be better than using a composite lead.

    I'd buy the cable ^_^ But then I already have two...

    One thing to note: Although you can remove the Green Macrovision using the switch on the SCART, all its doing is making the lead Composite instead of RGB :|

    Still, i have it, got it about a year ago and i have found it to be very good, much better than the RGB i had before.
