“The hex-mesh jacket that surrounds the cable seemed a little odd at first to myself, however I find it makes the cable rather tangle free and is very tear resistant”

- The conductors are copper; so corrosion is possible. Given the extremely good quality of all Monster products, this is unlikely to occur.
These cables by Monster are designed to bring excellent picture quality to your home theatre and they do this perfectly. The durable design and gold contacts ensure that you will be able to use these cables for years with your component video switch or component device.
The support of HDTV signals and enhanced definition TV signals is a good feature that ensures you’ll be able to get the most out of your HD cable receiver or the component video switch that it runs through. The resolutions that are standard are supported by these cables.
The hex-mesh jacket that surrounds the cable seemed a little odd at first to myself, however I find it makes the cable rather tangle free and is very tear resistant. The durability is nice as that means stepping on the cable or moving it has very little chance to ruin any part of it. This is an ideal cable for a component video switch for this very reason.
Given the high quality of picture that is transmitted through this cable and the durability, it is a very good bang for the buck. Give it a shot if you’re building a home theatre; as stated it would be a good cable choice for connecting your component video switch to your HDTV.
One thing that worries me is the conductors of this cable are of fine threaded copper which leads me to believe it is possible for it to face corrosion; however it should not be much of an issue as it looks like it’s a rather well designed component cable. The fine threaded copper is probably better for transferring the picture quickly and cleanly, and so this is only a minor quibble.
Component video switches and component devices sometimes need a better cable to get the full usage out of the device and this is a good choice right here. The Monster Ultra Series creates a great picture and you should seriously consider investing in a set or two if you love your video experience.
