    I am looking to connect my PS2 to my new LCD via component and have a choice of the IXOS at £23 plus P&P or a 'quality gold' component AV cable on Ebay for £7 (big difference in price which leads me to believe the IXOS is much, much superior- but is it????)

    I am willing to pay for the extra to get a quality cable however as my PS2 is approx 5 metres from the screen...........i will have to connect the PS2 component cable to a triple (gold plated contacts) coupler and then connect the coupler to a quality 3 metre components cable to reach the LCD.

    I know that there may be a loss of quality going through an 'extention' lead so i am looking at the IXOS but will a third party cable be just as good if i connect using the above method.

    I don’t know what the eBay one is like, but my friend has an IXOS one and the picture is very sharp. My PS2 is still connected via composite :( However, if I were going to connect via component I’d go for the Ixos.

    I bought a 4,10€ PS2 RGB cable at FNAC and I'm using it for component video to my Loewe TV and it's a huge diference!

    EDIT: In RGB is allmost as good!

    I've got a cheap £5 component cable for my PS2 and the quality is the same as the official one I had before it (which cost a fair bit more). Not sure how good an IXOS cable is but can't fault this cheap one.
