Several technicians told me that there's no difference in visual quality when using gold plated ones compared to using cheap normal ones.

It doesn't say anything about quailty perse but offers greater protection to the signal path. Or so the theory goes.

Basically gold offers better cohesion.

Double post!

Hmmmm, I'm not sure. I know a lot of poor quality "gold-plated" stuff gets sold on ebay cheaply, such as audio leads.

I have bought some of these myself, and they are fine for the price, but they are by no-means expensive quality cables.

I don't know anything about these scarts though - they could be fantastic, just saying "gold-plated" doesn't always mean expensive.

Gold plated is only tiny part of a good scart lead and even then don;'t make much difference at all except slightly better connections, the cables itself, the seperation and interference of cables all matters, my parents have a good Squart on their dvd player, and you DO NOTICE the difference between this and the OEM generic black one that came with the dvd player. far richer colours in RGB Scart mode.
