    Hi all,

    I aa looking for some straight forward reasonably priced SCART to SCART leads, fully wired. Thinking of IXOS (but posisble a bit expensive), QED (a little cheaper) or Thor (avoiding Monster like the plague as I think they are out to rip you off) of the named brands. Even looking at the no name cheap leads from www.cableuniverse.co.uk - has anyone had experience of these?

    These will only be short runs - 1m max but possibly 0.5 m. What about flat leads?

    I am wanting to buy 4 or 5 leads so really £30 a lead is a bit too much, and I havn't got the best of kit as yet.

    Any thoughts and cheap places to buy?

    Cheers.

    If anyone else sees this thread and is looking for a similar answer, then I have plumped for some flat non-branded SCART to SCART leads at http://www.tvcables.co.uk/cgi-bin/tvcables/SC001.html. A £5.99 each, fully screened with metal connectors it can't be bad if, like myself, you need a few leads and don't necassarily have the topmost kit to connect together. If I upgrade the kit, I will probably upgrade the leads.

    I did also go to Cabel Universe but although they where quick to respond to my question ("are there products individually screened"), they seemed a little confused about what they sold. First the products wheren't fully screened, then they where, then they failed to clear up the confusion. Oh well.

    What's the quality like? Do they individually screenied cables?

    I don't mind paying a little extra for a quality lead but I can't stretch to £30 a lead just yet as I need 5 of them.
