6ft 18AWG CL2 Premium 5-RCA Component Video/Audio Coaxial Cable (RG-6/U) - Black

Component video, also known as YPbPr, produces the highest quality analog video. This cable includes conductors for each of the three video channels (Red, Green, Blue) as well as the two stereo audio channels (Red and White) and is ideal for connecting the analog output of DVD players and VCRs to the corresponding inputs on your TV.

The video conductors in this cable are made from RG-6 coaxial cable, with 18AWG cores and shielding to prevent EMI and RFI interference from disturbing your video signal. The audio lines utilize 27AWG stranded conductors. The connectors are gold plated to ensure smooth, corrosion-free connections. The connector housings have color-coded, knurled rubber rings for easy identification and a perfect grip when installing or removing the cable.

This cable is CL2 rated, indicating that it conforms with fire safety and insurance requirements, making it safe for use through or within the walls of residential class buildings.

Not so user friendly ribbon cable

Pros: Durable, perhaps too much so for its own good. Quality of the individual cables is good.

Cons: Cable is very, very stiff. Half the RCA connectors fit too loosely to stay connected. One Audio cable was short circuited.

Let it be known that I have loved virtually all my prior purchases from Monoprice. This 5 cable ribbon, however, seems to have more challenges than benefits.

The ribbon itself is extremely stiff. The component video cables are not lined up in the usual order and the audio cables are a bit longer than the video cables. None of this should be a deal breaker until you factor in the stiffness. There is simply no way to flex the cable without affecting your connections. Since half the RCA connectors came fitting very loosely any effort to adjust or flex the cable resulted in a loss of contact somewhere in the chain.

The excess cable could also not be easily tucked out of the way. My tuner just kept flying off the rack. After a struggle I did get the cable adequately supported with plastic ties only to discover that one of the audio cables was shorted out. While it was not difficult to substitute another audio cable I decided to call it quits at this point. I purchased a set of flexible component video cables and paired them with some spare audio cables. Five separate flexible cables worked well even if the look was a bit more cluttered.

Although this ribbon design seems like a good idea and the quality of the cables was never in question the ergonomics and RCA connectors chosen do not seem very synergistic. You might be able to separate out the cables and obtain a better outcome but it sort of defeats the purpose of having a single ribbon design. A bit of a disappointment, unfortunately.

Updated review
I was very excited to get these cables. The build quality seemed to be very good. Firm connections at the time.
Well, it has been almost two years now since I have used these. I only pulled them off the back of the TV just one time since I installed them. Now comes the problem, I was wondering why the picture quality was not very good.
The connections had worked away from the inputs. The RCA ends just loosened to the point where there was no connection at all. The metal must be very cheap. I am so disappointed.

My apologies for the problems you had with the component cables. We do offer a lifetime warranty on all of our cables and would be more than happy to issue an RMA for a replacement. I would just need an order number to get the process started. Again my apologies for any inconvenience this may have caused.

Pros: This is a good quality cable that functions just as well as those costing 3 times more. I recommend this cable to anyone looking for a high quality cable for a modest price.

Cons: None

Good quality. No surprises. Just the product I expected for a lower price that what I'm forced to pay locally.

Pros: Nice thick cables((kind of stiff). The RCA ends appear to be good quality and the final end product, the picture quality, is great. I have used much higher value cables, and I wish I had known about Monoprice before. Monoprice hasn't let me down yet!

Cons: The RCA ends are a just a bit to large for my TV inputs(I have a Samsung DLP]. Had to really force them into the holes.
