Like many poor-quality S-Video cables, the image is sharper than Composite, but there is a visible checkerboard pattern over the video. For video recording however, this is mostly compressed out, leaving only the improved sharpness visible. But for the price, you can't go wrong!
This is a very good connector. Inexpensive and does the job. It has a loose connection to TVs/monitors. This is a plus in my book since tight connections on modern screens feel like you are going to rip out the sockets if you try too hard.
PROS: Inexpensive price. Brings a good picture. Flexible yet firm. Loose contacts.
