Component video - worth it?


Recommended Posts

Is anyone out there using component video cables with their PS2? If so, is it a substantial increase in picture quality?


I'd take a blind leap myself, but I'm limited in the component input dept, and if I get cables for the PS2, I'm really going to have to get a switcher too. :roll:

Its worth it IMHO. If you have a progressive capable set you will be able to enjoy progressive enabled games like Ratchet and Clank Going Commando for one. Also you may notice a big difference in color separation and reduced color bleeding in general. One game thats an excellent example of this is Onimusha 3 which uses a great deal of reds and greens in its color pallete and the differences in how "solid" these colors appear is quite noticeable on my set.

In my experience, it depends on the TV. On the PS2 on my progscan RPTV, the change from composite to S-Video was huge, but the move from S-Vid to component was negligible. Like you, if I went component I would need a switcher so I left it at S. Most PS2 games aren't progressive anyway so it wasn't as big a priority as, say, XBOX.
