component or HDMI.
on a 42" lcd if it makes any difference
HDMI > Component.
HDMI is better than component.
There's almost no difference between a $6 HDMI cable and a $40 one though, so just pick up a cheaper one.
Go with HDMI if you have it. Also, component can't output true 1080p.
Yeah I'm not 100% sure on that actually. The 360 upscales to 1080p via component and it works, but it doesn't work with my PS3.
really? haha. HDMI bro.
HDMI, make sure you buy a high quality one though otherwise if u buy some shitty brand it will look like composite
No difference between using a metal clothes hanger to send the signal and Monster-brand HDMI cable... I remember seeing a comparison article once. Monoprice or Firefold HDMI cables are the way to go
It's a digital signal so it doesn't make a difference, and unless your PS3 is in the middle of World War II you probably don't need the ZOMG awesome cable shielding. Monoprice/Firefold = win.
make sure you get only Monster Cables if you don't want your shit to suck.
True story i only buy monster cables.
Exactly. It takes more than 50' before there's any difference at all, let alone how much farther it takes before anyone would notice.
Honestly, you won't notice a difference with your naked eye between component and HDMI. HDMI is nice though if you got the right equipment cause it can carry audio and video in one cable. Plus, it's cheaper if you buy it at the right place (monoprice/Firefold).
lol@ monster suckers
1'S AND 0'S BRO.
1'S AND 0'S.
if you don't mind paying $100 for a $0.99 cable.
Shipping costs more for an HDMI cable through monoprice than the actual cable itself.
On a 42" though, you probably won't be able to tell.
Any sub-$200 HDMI cable is a waste of money.
Anyone who spends more than necessary on a freakin' cable is a tool and a chump
