    i now have my tv connected with an inexpensive s-video cable; is it worth the cost of a $50 gas fill monster s-video cable? The guy a Best Buy who seemed pretty knowledgable thought it would be a significant improvement. He also so suggested Monster stage 2 surge suppressor ($100). What's your thought on the two
    thanks

    Maybe you can try A RGB-scart cable also as Monster cable available.
    They say that RGB is better than S-video.

    1) It's extremely unlikely that a Best Buy employee is knowledgeable about anything. [​IMG]
    2) You are very unlikely to notice any difference in the two s-video cables unless you have a really top-notch monitor. If you DO have a top-notch monitor, then you should upgrade to a component cable which will definitely be better than any s-video cable.

    Buy it, try it, and take it back if it's not worth the difference.
    Incidentally, the Monster surge/line conditioner that contains Stage 2 filtering is $150 retail. That only refers to it's filtering capability. The $100 one is rated the same for surge protection(up to 1665 joules) and has Stage 1 filtering.
