generic vs official vga cable?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
hi guys just wondering if there was a huge difference between the generic and official cables, and plus I live in canada so I dont wanna pay duties on stuff coming in from america so would it just be less hassle getting the official kind?

The Xbox 360 Official cables are absolutely phenomenal. I have never tried generic brands, but they can be less than favorable, I hear.

Two of my friends have the vga cables. One of them is generic and the other is an official Xbox one. They look the same quality wise and both have 19" ws monitors.

To my knowledge, none of these wires makes a huge difference. I use cheap, chinese HDMI cables, and as long as the integrity of the cable is intact, it's all just electrons bouncing through conductive metal.

Monster cables make me laugh that someone would pay so much for them; there is a marginal quality difference in terms of shielding and connector quality, but $150 for a HDMI or other such cable is insane.
