My PS2 used to be connected by the aeninct composite cables that came with it to my 32 HDTV and the picture was horrible. The graphics of most PS2 games were dull and lack luster and the in-game text was blurry. In my personal experience it was so terrible that playing aeninct PS2 games gave me headaches. I bought this in hopes for any type of improvement and to my surprise I was astonished by how gorgeous some PS2 games came out. The colors were more vibrant and the graphics were more crisp. Best of all the in-game text were absolutely clear! Now I'm able to play aeninct games without worrying about being paid headaches. This cable works wonders and is able to bring out the PS2 s full potential of showing games in widescreen 480p and letting you enable Progressive Scan in some games. The one feature I have not tried yet with this cable is connecting it to a PS3 since I do not currently own one.
