    they'll work fine...lower priced and well made alternatives would be GE's available at Target

    The AR cables have a good reputation.

    I suggest them for modest systems where the display is not that sensitive to the cable. Your system becomes "sensitive" when you have any of the following conditions:

    - Display size > 40"
    - Display is HDTV/HDTV Ready
    - Running progressive scan or HD signals
    - Long run of cable, 10' or greater

    Good Luck.

    I'm using an AR component cable, 12', on my 42" HDTV-ready set, and the picture looks great. I can't imagine that spending $90 on a Monster cable would make any improvement. Maybe someday I'll buy a set just to see.

    IMHO I think there new pro cable is just a dressed up version of their older cables. There standard stuff if getting kinda cheep looking but I think they are still pretty good cables for the money.
