    Just been looking through this thread about which VGA cable to get.

    Couple of questions.

    1. Did anyone really notice the difference between the £20 MS cable and one like the Logic one here ?

    2. Would either of these cables have optical out or do I need an optical cable in addition ? Would the audio (it is TOS optical right ?) lead be long enough togo into my amp OK which is about a foot below the TV which would have the VGA cable plugged into it ?

    Thanks people !

    I bought a non ms vga cable to plug into my projector and it has optical out plus the picture quality is spot on, mine was £9.99 from gamestation.

    Hope it helps.

    If this helps, I've had both the official MS one and a mad catz one, and the mad catz one had noticeable ghosting. I didnt recieve an optical cable with either, but both also have LR audio outs, at about 1 - 2 metres long.
