Hi
Thanks for posting.
It is good practice to also add the merchant and price to the title. It helps people who are just browsing through. And in my experience your post will get a few more “hot” votes.

They are well worth taking a look at.
Again, thanks for posting
Kind regards Andy

Most people will need one of these as well to make the audio into a normal 3.5 socket.

fake?
Yes, and not worth it IMO. I've used the fake ones like this before and they're rubbish. The end section of the VGA cable isn't shielded properly so you get image ghosting. I ended up buying the official Microsoft cable and had no such problems + build quality was 10x better.

The official Microsoft cable comes with this attachment included.

This a totally different cable so your comparison is not relevant.

I agree that these fake VGA cables are a false economy. Much better to pay a few extra quid for the real one.

Fake? Where does it say its from Microsoft? Similar box, granted. I dont see why this is any different from buying a different manufacturers one such as 4Gamer (all made in china anyway). Some are good, some are rubbish. Sure, DX is not known for quality, so this could be rubbish. Just wait for the reviews before ordering and find out.

Genuine ones are not a "few quid" more, they're 3 times the cost. We teach programming XBox XNA here, so will order one and let people know what they're like compared with Microsofts overpriced ones. :thumbsup:

Not technically fake as it doesn't claim to be made by Microsoft but it's clearly using Xbox 360 trademarks without Microsoft's permission. It has been deliberately branded in a way to trick the unsuspecting consumer into thinking this is the official product being sold at a bargain price.

I have first hand experience using these cheapo cables, official 3rd party MadCatz cables and the official Microsoft cable. All but the MS cables gave a noticeably poorer quality image along with ghosting. And all were manufactured in china (even the official one). Just because something was made in China doesn't automatically mean it is poor quality. It's all down to quality control, materials and design. The official cables have extra and thicker shielding, are constructed from higher quality materials, finished better and are generally better designed. The extra £10 for an official cable is well worth it IMO.

Spending cash on a VGA cable in order to benefit from the improved picture quality is a waste of money if you just go for these cheap ones. When it comes to cables carrying HD analogue video/sound then you really want to go for the best. It's not worth cutting corners for the sake of a couple of £.
