For those voting cold, a scart cable is not like a HDMI cable.

A scart cable needs to be shielded to stop interference from outside sources. Cheap cables are no good whatsoever, however a good cable from the likes of Monster (and back then Monster were good at what they did) is worth the extra money.

For anyone that needs a scart cable then this is a great product at a great price.

but on the other hand, these were designed to be used with back facing scart plugs, most modern tv's have down facing scarts (my panny,samsung and bluapunkt) where if you use heavy cables, they fall out. I know I have some monster cables. So yes these are better tan cheap scart cables but only if you have rear facing or maybe side facing plugs.

good price for a top guality cable. as someone has pointed, seems very few people know the difference between cheap tat and decent shielded cable.

I paid £2 for one. Does the job and doesn't have any of the interference you mention. Proves it's all just a marketing gimmick.

Sadly this does show up some igornance and I'm certainly no Monster fan but with analogue signals a shielded, decent cable can make a fair difference to the results.

Of course there are ways to use a £1 scart lead and that is to remove all the return feeds so it's a one way only cable which sorts out crossover bleedthrough that affects cheap scarts. But that's no good if you need to daisy chain or record to/from equipment.

Unlike HDMI, it is very easy to see and hear the problems that cheap analogue cables can suffer from so thankfully no need to get idiotic advice from PC World.

must've been made by plucking the hairs of a unicorn and braiding them into cables. BTW shielded only matters if theres heavy interference EM wise.

Do people still use these leads ???

That sounds like SCIENCE. This one time, a thing didn't happen for some reason, so the accepted truth and weight of scientific data must be flawed.

The benefits are real. I have a DVD recorder I used to use. The recordings were noticeably better when I used a high end SCART cable (back then, I had cables from IXOS and Thor). Because you were lucky with your cable, or more realistically, because you have never had a high end cable to compare your output against, it doesn't "prove" anything at all.

Funny you should say that as yes I do have a high end one for your information. My father bought a high end gold braided cable and again, my point still stands. My cheaper cable was the same quality at a cheaper price. Pretty much like the HDMI argument, there is no point in buying high end, just stick to cheaper stuff.

I mean if you want to waste money be my guest.

Doesn't everyone have at least two SCART leads in the Man draw already?

Anyway...this discussion is 5+ years out of date...I think the terms 'cross talk' 'noise' and 'attenuation' will be lost on anyone still using SCART!

I don't debate or object to your opinion, I just object to your use of scientific language to back up an unscientific point.

You have provided no proof of anything, just an opinion backed up by some anecdotal evidence. This is fine, but don't present it as fact or it undermines the point you are trying to make.
