I'm not attempting to revive the spunky debate between high end/low end/ and no end cables, I'm just trying to figure out if Radio Shack is blatently ripping people off. I was there today buying a composite cable for my VCR and I saw they had "Component" cables... 12ft for $50. Right above them were their Composite AV cables... 12ft for $20. Both sets have three cables. Both have gold plated RCA plugs. Packages seemed to weigh about the same, but obviously I didn't cut them open to inspect the actual wires inside. The only discernable difference I could find was the AV had white/red/yellow ID washers on the connectors and the component ones had blue/green/red ID washers. Are blue and green washers that much more expensive or am I missing something important?
