if you buy this ps2 cable it can be converted to work on a xbox by rounding off the one side that has the flat corners on it . lol done it before using a cable box power cord . plus it looks better than the stock black cord

why pay 12.99 for a power cord when they have ones, that dont need to be cut down, for 2.99

Edit: And dont tell me it gives you better performance.

Monster Cables are way over-rated and way over-priced....your basically paying for the name (and yeah a little of the look) hey, I personally don't care what you spend your money. I'm just saying a 12 buck power plug isn't gonna do anything but maybe boost your self confidence and lower your bank account.

Alrigh there's a MAJOR difference in a power cord and xbox, personally I never see the power cord, and in fact I think that power cord looks ugly as hell, it looks like it belongs on a child's play thing. Id much rather save my 12 bucks for a cold cathode or a bunch of leds.

I cannot understasnd why someone would pay for this. For all of you that was wanting to do this you have a few option:

A) Send me $12.99+S&H and I will send you a power cord that will make your xbox work just like it did before and just as good as the monster cable power cord, but with no improved performance. In other words a factory power cord

cool.gif Send me $12.99+S&H and I will send you a monster cable power cord that will make your xbox work just like the factory power cord, but with no improved performance.

C) Send me a picture of you and $11.99+S&H and I will slap you if i ever see you for even considering this mod.

Someone was just posting about monster cables on another forum.. check this out:
Monster Cable DVI-D cable: $129.99
Generic Dual-Link DVI Cable: $13.99

I think these cables are a ripoff, and personally I wouldn't consider it an Xbox mod to spend 13 bucks on a power cable. To each his own, I suppose!

i know... in maximumpc they did some benchmarks on monster usb cables.... the $20 versus teh $0.25 cheap ass one... they both took about 4 minutes on average to transfer with a usb hard drive... except the monster was... gasp... 4 seconds faster...


Even if there is a slight gain, not that i've ever noticed, it isn't worth the several hundred percent price raise.
