5.0 out of 5 stars much needed 8 Jan. 2007
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
owning a regular crt (non HD) TV over 20 inches in size means you should take my advice and get one of these.

I bought one of these the other week and am as pleased as can be with the picture improvement over the original cable provided with the wii. Although the improvement is most apparent in more graphically detailed games such as Zelda I have noticed improvements in wii sports as well, such as grain/texture in the ground being more apparent.

When you switch to RGB scart there is a less hazy image which is particularly beneficial in fast moving action such as Zelda battles. You might also notice slight 'jaggies' on edges of 3d characters but this is just because your quite literally getting a clearer interpretation of what your wii is really trying to show on your tv. The overall gains of one of these cables makes it definitely worth a buy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great picture - Some Issues 26 Dec. 2006
By Pippy H
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Connecting your Wii with the RGB Scart cable gives you a far superior picture than the supplied red/white/yellow composite lead. The picture is sharper and less blurred (so you can actually read small text without eyestrain) and the colours, particularly the reds, are sharper and more.. well colourful really.

However.. it's not a fully wired cable, so unlike an XBox Scart, the pins that control widescreen switching are simply not there. Not too much of an issue if theres a simple button on your TV remote to switch screen ratio, but a pain if like me it means trawling through about 6 menu screens every time you need to switch in and out of widescreen.

Also, there is always a signal - even when the Wii is in standby, so it won't turn on/off your TV as you power up/down the Wii and if you have autodetecting Scart splitters, it may prove problematic.

In summary.. it's more than worth it for the better picture - but for an official, quite pricey cable it really should have been fully wired.

Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I bought this cable more out of curiosity than anything else, and didn't really know what to expect as there seem to be lots of contradicting reports of what RGB scart does for you. Here's my attempt to describe its effects having tried out most of my games on it-

Zelda: twilight princess - This game has lots of very small or detailed text, and the cable improved the sharpness of the details.

Mario 64 - surprisingly, this game was enormously improved from the composite cables, making text more readable and graphics more vibrant and well-defined, making the whole game seem fresher.

Sonic 2 - the game feels more vital somehow- presumably because the lines in the background are more defined so you get a greater sense of it whizzing by.

Zelda: A link to the past - The text across the top of the screen (for arrows, bombs, rupees etc) is more readable.

Super Mario Sunshine - Oddly enough considering mario 64, i saw no discernible difference at all with this game.

Metroid Prime 2: Echoes - Detailed textures were sharper, and given that this game makes extensive use of pretty textures it makes the game look better. Note: this game runs in 480i only, and 480i seemed to look a lot nicer on my TV through the rgb cable than through composite, though i suspect that depends more on the TV.

Overall, the edges of text and buttons, boxes etc. are better defined, and the edges of 3D objects are better defined. Fine details in textures which would be lost in the blurring of a composite signal are preserved by the rgb cable.

If you can find one of these cables at a relatively reasonable price (I found one priced at £16.99) then if you're interested in improved graphics it's probably worth it, as it does represent the optimum experience on a standard-definition TV.

5.0 out of 5 stars No HDTV? Then you need this! 16 Nov. 2006
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
The SCART Adapter supplied with the Wii simply lets you plug the composite cable supplied with your Wii into your TV SCART socket. Composite is the worst connection type for video and audio, leading to blurry pictures on any TV much larger than 14".

The RGB SCART Cable breaks the audio and video signals into seperate wires/signals, resulting in a crisp, sharp image, with much better colour reproduction: it offers the best image quality for those of us without HDTV.

If you don't have a HDTV then you really need to consider one of these. If you do have a HDTV then the official component lead is the one for you!

4.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic 2 Feb. 2007
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
No HDTV? Get this!

Throw those old crappy RYW cables out and buy this! With this scart lead it improves the sound and picture by a great deal. More deepness to the colors resulting in fantastic color and sound is amazing, worth the money.

You may run into a problem with it cutting the edge of the left screen if you do change the screen postion on the wiis settings and your all go!

Worth a buy if you cant use component cables.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent 19 July 2007
By C. W.
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
I was really surprised at how much this improved the quality of the video. It didn't seem like a huge improvement and I was a little disappointed when I played Wii Sports and Wii Play, but after firing up Resident Evil 4: Wii Edition and The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, I was just shocked at how much better they both looked. The main difference is in the crispness of the colours and text clarity. Highly recommended for those without HD displays (and their TV set supports RGB SCART). If you have HD, you must get teh Wii Component cable however.
