If you have an HDTV or high-definition video component that lacks HDMI connections — like a DVD player, camcorder, cable or satellite TV box — you can still enjoy a beautiful high-def picture. Monster's high-performance M850cv component video cables have been tested and certified by the prestigious Imaging Science Foundation (ISF®) to deliver the razor-sharp detail and dazzling color we expect from HD signals.

The M850cv's solid copper conductors are coated with silver to improve high-frequency response. Dual-layer shielding, which includes Mylar® foil and copper braid, protects the signal from outside interference and hum. Monster's gold-plated Turbine® RCA connectors have ten precision cuts in the collar, plus a split-tip center pin for a reliably snug, secure connection that won't corrode.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I needed these a set of component video cables so I could hook my video unit into my TV. These cables were just what I was looking for. When the cables arrived - I unpacked the plastic, hooked one side to the video unit and the other to the TV and no I'm watch my DVDs with no problem.

Pros: Great product - just what I needed and the price. It's nice to get something on sale especially when you use it right away. When I was looking for the cables, I came across these - at this price - I figured I couldn't afford not to get them. The work great!

Cons: None

Works as audio interconnect

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Excellent cables for audo interconnects. Requires several hours of break-in for the bass to fill in before it sounds good. I'm still considering getting AQ Sydney but this one is the best I've tried so far. It's by far the best value at the Crutchfield price.

Pros: Polished silver plated conductor and excellent shielding.

Cons: Monster ends are always too tight. Color doesn't match audio cables.

M850CV High Definition Component Video Cable: The Monster M850CV high-definition component video cable provides superior 720p/1080i high-definition video reproduction with deeply saturated blacks and brilliant natural color. To experience all the rich color and detail in today's high-definition DVDs and broadcasts, you need more than an HD display and video source. You need a true high-definition video cable that maximizes signal integrity and home theater performance. Unfortunately, even so-called "high-performance" video cables can lack the construction and technology needed for truly accurate transmission of HD video. The M Series M850CV component video cable features many of Monster's most advanced technologies for an HD picture with stunning color and definition.

Silver Conductors: Certified for optimum performance by the prestigious Imaging Science Foundation, the M850CV component video cable features premium silver coating on all three component conductors (Y, PB, PR). This dramatically enhances high-frequency response and signal integrity.

Gas-Injected Dielectric: An advanced nitrogen gas-injected dielectric ensures precision 75-ohm impedance for maximum signal strength, even over long cable runs.

24k Gold Turbine Connectors: To reduce distortion and signal loss at the point of connection, the M850CV features patented Turbine connectors with premium 24k gold contacts and 10 individually cut contact points. This no-slip, corrosion-resistant connection is reliable, rugged, and built to last.

Metal Connector Shell:  The Monster M850CV high-definition component video cable employs a rugged protective metal housing with premium finish for long-lasting durability and style.

Dual-Layer Shielding: 100% aluminized Mylar foil and 95% copper braid metal-to-metal shielding ensure optimum rejection of EM and RF interference.
