ChrisF gave a very detailed post about the differences of the main 2 cable options, monster cable 400x (which is $40 at ebgames) vs. the official ms pack with upgraded component cables.
DBZRacer then bought both packs and tested them both. He has concluded that the 400x cables give you a noticable difference in quality.
|Also to add the prices once again for the final comparison:|
MS HD Pack - $20
Optical Cable - $15
Upgraded Component Cables - $15
Total - $50
Monster 400x - $40
Monster 100x Optical Cable and adapter - $30
So the final difference is only $20 or so...
So there you have it, most say monster 400x is the way to go and well worth the money. Also the optical cable and adapter are not required to use the 400x cables so if anything, if you have a big hdtv... do yourself a favor and go for the 400x.
thanks again to chrisF and especially DBZRacer for his research.
|I was in best buy yesterday looking to buy some hdtv cables for my xbox since I just got a 56" hdtv. There were 3 to choose from, the official xbox hdtv cables and two monster cables which I know are good quality from my other, smaller hdtv I have. anyway my question is which is the one that offers the highest possible qualioty and is it noticably different? I ask this in gamers chat for all the real gamers opinion on this.|
 seems like there are actually five choices..
official xbox hdtv cables
monster xbox 100x hdtv cables
monster xbox 200x hdtv cables
monster xbox 300x hdtv cables
monster xbox 400x hdtv cables
I'm thinking of getting the 400x ($60) I assume they are the best
