5.0 out of 5 stars Works perfectly! 5 July 2007
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Bought an RGB Scart lead for the Wii for around £5.50, but was disappointed that it definitely wasn't RGB, and it had terrible ghosting. So I returned it and bought this. Not only is this still far cheaper than the official RGB Scart cable (£7.99 at time of purchase), but it has an important feature that hasn't been mentioned anywhere - it has a composite run-off block. This is useful for two reasons:

- You can use an external speaker system instead of your TV's speakers, and still get RGB picture quality. Particularly useful for those with smaller mono TVs who want stereo sound.
- You can use it on a TV that has composite ports without digging out the composite cable from the Wii box (provided there is a spare composite -> composite lead somewhere, which there almost always is).

This is true RGB and provides the best picture quality possible from your Wii if you don't have component ports that support progressive scan on your TV. Vast improvement over the bundles composite cables, and far cheaper than the official cables.

Buy!

Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
This cable is hard-wired to force widescreen on the TV's SCART (hooray!), which automatically makes it better than the official cable (unless you've got a 4:3 TV, in which case you probably won't care about RGB anyway).

I've seen quite a few reviews mention that you can't use any RGB cable with a SCART auto-switcher because the Wii permanently outputs an 'on' signal. Turns out that this is due to the 'Autoconnect 24' feature being enabled (by default) on the Wii. I turned 'Autoconnect 24' off and -- hey presto -- this cable worked perfectly with my SCART auto-switcher.

5.0 out of 5 stars superior to the official cable 28 Jan. 2013
By bob
Verified Purchase
if you have an old-shape 4:3 TV, buy the official cable. For the rest of us, this is superior. the reason is that the officlal cable is hard-wired to 4:3 mode, while this one is hard-wired to 16:9. If your wii is outputting a 16:signal, and your tv is 16:9, the official cable will result in a widescreen signal being squashed into a 4:3 shape, requiring you to manually adjust the picture to widescreen: most irritating, wheras this one doesnt have that problem.

I recieved precisely what is shown in the picture, and I note somebody claimed that they got something different, which was hopefully a mistake rather than a deliberate substitution.

The quality of the item is top notch. third-party items like this can often be low quality, but I think this is good. the scart doesnt fall out, the wii socket is a perfect fit in the back of the wii.

Now, most importantly, this is a major improvement on the stock 3 x RCA composite scart (audio L, audio R and video) that comes with the wii. Various games recommend that you switch to 60Hz (NTSC) mode for improved picture (presumably because the system was designed for it, with 50Hz PAL as an after-thought?) but with the provided cable I got aliasing and horrible moving patterns in various parts of the picture and text was harder to read, so I had to change it back. Same result with 2 different TVs. However, with this cable the picture was immediately better, and even more so after changing to 60Hz mode, despite the fact that 60Hz NTSC mode has a lower vertical resolution. Even 2d games seem smoother, which is probable because of the faster frame rate.

The primary benefits for me (when using this product and changing to 60Hz) were much better colours, sharper edges. and smoother movement.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well made, does the job perfectly! 1 Jan. 2011
A nice, well contructed RGB scart cable. Worked straight out of the packaging on all the televisions in the house. The difference in picture if you've been using the composite cable that came with your wii is immediately obvious - absolutely crystal clear!

One thing to note is that this cable is wired for both composite and RGB so if you connect it to your television and find the image isn't crystal clear, or don't notice any difference - check to make sure you're connected to an RGB capable scart socket or have selected the RGB input on your remote (on some older TV's they default to composite and you need to hit another key such as text to go into RGB mode).

All in all - if you use a Wii you can't be without either an RGB cable or a component cable - especially if you're running 60Hz!

4.0 out of 5 stars Picture quality minus convenience 2 Jun. 2007
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Like the official RGB scart cable, this Logic3 version provides a much improved picture quality over the AV cables provided with your Wii. However, also like the official cable, this one suffers from the same problems of the power always being "on", meaning your TV will automatically switch to the Wii channel, even if the Wii itself is not on. Of course the channel can then be changed on your TV, but it's an annoyance to have to do that every time you switch on the TV.

From this we can conclude the the wiring problem is most likely at the Wii end of the connection and probably due to the fact that the Wii has a stepped-up standby mode - indicated by a yellow light on the front instead of red.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Wii product 7 Sept. 2012
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Having purchased a lovely new TV for my lounge I wanted to make the connections for other equipment as good as possible. This cable improved the connection of my Wii as good as possible as there is no HDMI connection on my older game machine. This cable was well worth the money and I would recommend to those whose Wii has no HDMI slot.

The product came as you can see in the picture and it does what it says on the tin. The only problem I have with it is that horrid plastic packaging.
