1.5ft 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.
Color Coded: Green, Red and Blue (Component Video) & Red, White (Stereo Audio)
- Triple heavy-duty super shielded RG-6/U coaxial cables to maximum signal transfer and minimize interference.
- Gold plated RCA plugs to improve conductivity.

- Solid center conductor: 18 AWG (1*1.02) Super shielding: 120 % aluminum foil + 9*16/0.12 Braid
Fully molded construction. Excellent quality.
- 26 AWG (10/0.12) Super shielding: 120 % aluminum foil + 48/0.12 Braid
PROS: Durable, heavy-duty construction. Extremely tight plugs - I can't imagine this cable coming loose. Ever. I mean seriously, they're like mini vise-grips. My fingers are sore from connecting them (this is all a good thing)!
CONS: The audio cables are slightly longer than the video cables. I'm not sure if this was intentional - it seems so since the extra length is present on both ends. Since these cables are very heavy-duty and stiff, and this one in particular is very short, it tends to make my equipment move around from the uneven tension (I've got a very light-weight external usb tv tuner connected to my satellite box for my computer). Had I known it would be like this ahead of time, I might have bought the 3 ft. version. The cable works perfectly though, and I'm sure with a different setup it might not be noticeable.
PROS: Very good quality cables and connectors
CONS: The 2 audio cables are longer than the video cables. This made it very difficult to connect to components / video switches as the video cables are being pulled out from the connector. These should all be the same length.
Monoprice is a great company, but I did have one weird issue with them. They actually charged me twice for the same order. I was given a refund the next day, but just thought it was a bit weird to get charged twice.
PROS: Heavy duty construction,Great performance and price! Exactly as advertised! Perfect for my application. (TV on top of cable box, no HDMI plug on cable box. Had to use component connection.)
PROS: Supposed to be good But.....
CONS: Well, I have noticed that picture quality has decreased with this cable vs. my old thin wire cable that came with the Slingbox.
