    Yes the best connection is the component lead. After that RGB Scart and then S-Video. You will see a substantial improvement with the component lead. :thumbsup:

    I've got this, and its absolutely FANTASTIC!! (with my silver PS2 v9)
    Ultimate RGB SCART Lead For PS2, blue lead from Blaze:
    http://specialreserve.co.uk/Ultimate_Rgb_SCART_5879_r.html


    - It removes the green screen when u watch DVD's (no need for anything else)
    - Picture is crystal clear, compared to the normal scart
    - It has a switcher for dvd's & games (but I can't see what difference that makes)

    I recommend it thoroughly!
    However I don't know much about component...

    I am now hoping to hook up the PS2 to my Pio 435XDE plasma...
    Are you saying component will be MUCH better than the amazing scart lead I have?
