5.0 out of 5 stars HD FTW!!! 7 Mar 2011
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I bought these cables to record with my HD PVR. The description claims on amazon that these cables also support 1080p (full hd) which I am glad to say does. My ps3 is displaying full 1080p. I always thought that component cables could not display 1080p but for some reason these one's do. The cable length is 2m which is huge. They are heavy for cables which is only a good thing. When the cables plug into your ps3 the fitting is tight which is good it is not loose like the cables you got with your ps3. On a side note if you want to render 1080p footage you have to record in 1080i (Due to the HD PVR) then render in 1080p. Beware though as this takes a lot of time. I have a phenom X6 with 8gb ram ant a 9 minute video still took around 3 hours. All in all well worth the extra money if you want to record gameplay.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good quality 17 Dec 2011
By Nick

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I was using a Joytech £5 component cable with my PS2 connected to a Samsung 32" LCD TV which worked fine. I wanted a better quality component cable, but the Ixos cable is no longer available and the Monster cable is too pricey at £60. So I took a risk with the Sony official cable. It's a bit over priced at £27, it cost more than my PS2 did! - hence the 4 stars. So was it worth the risk and is the quality better than the cheap Joytech cable?.... Yes it is. There is more clarity in the picture and the colours are better, especially the whites seem brighter. Some games it is more noticeable than others. Overall I'm glad I bought it. Hope this helps anyone trying to decide whether to invest in an expensive component cable over the cheap "eBay" ones. As always amazon were excellent, delivery was quick even using super saver.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Product 3 July 2012
Verified Purchase
The cables arrived very quickly and in very good packaging and do exactly what they are supposed to do,i needed to free up an HDMI port on my TV,and to be honest have not noticed any reduction in picture quality,the only thing i had to do was restore my PS3 to its original settings as for some reason it wouldn't recognize the fact it was no longer connected to the TV via an HDMI port and was now connected to the TV via component cable,but once i did this everything was fine and working like it should,thought i would mention this,as at no time did the PS3 prompt me to do it.had to figure it out myself.If you are looking to hook your PS3 up to a tv with limited HDMI ports and want near HD picture quality then these official Sony cables will do the job very nicely.

I ordered this because I had moved my PS3 and the component cable which I originally purchased from Amazon was no longer long enough. This is not the cheapest but it was the only one which I could find that was 3 Metres long. Also works great with my HD tv giving full 1080 picture quality as did my other component cable. Excellent quality as usual from a genuine Sony product. There are cheaper versions on here though if you do not need the extra length.

5.0 out of 5 stars finally HD from my PS3 17 Jan 2009
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
My PS3 is connected to a projector via AV receiver that doesn't support HDMI. Therefore, this cable was my only option to get HD res.
Works great, but make sure you also get a proper component cable from AV receiver to TV/Projector, otherwise signal will deteriorate and quality will be lost.
Also, this reseller shipped it directly to Bosnia, which is much appreciated!

5.0 out of 5 stars Cant Go Wrong! 4 Mar 2012
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
My review is based on PS2 usage:

Don't waste your money on the cheap PS2/PS3 component cables if you want perfect output from your PS2, they may be fine when just gaming at the standard resolutions, but when you come to play anything that supports Progressive Scan (480i) you'll more than likely find that the cheap cables just aren't up to the job, producing ghosting and colour distortions.

These official Sony cables give a vibrant and crystal clear picture on my PS2, and are very well constructed.

So, if you want to get the most out of probably the best console of all time, you need these cables. If you're switching from the standard SCART combo, then the difference is night and day.

2.0 out of 5 stars Does not work correctly 24 Oct 2013
By Dominic
Verified Purchase
There is a buzzing sound nearly all of the time whiles playing games and viewing home screens (this is on a PS3 with a TV which has 1080p capability) lines also flicker on then screen nearly 100% of the time.
For a top end (if not at the top) product this product is rather disappointing.............Maybe get a cheaper option so you dont waster your money on this?

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect lead for ps3 14 Oct 2013
By D. John
The lead came from USA remarkably promptly, was undamaged and pristine.
It's perfect for connecting ps3 to flatscreen and according to my son the graphics are greatly enhanced and practically no lag.
