Our take on the Monster GameLink™

by Loren Barstow
Monster Cable

The Nintendo Wii creates a new, enjoyable gaming experience, but the cable that comes with the console won't give you a very sharp picture. For the best possible picture, step up to Monster's GameLink cable. It features a proprietary connector on one end that plugs into your Wii console; the other end includes high-quality component video and RCA stereo audio connections. The cable's advanced design and construction reject noise, giving you a crisp, colorful picture and rich, dynamic sound with your favorite games.

Overview: This Monster GameLink cable is made exclusively for use with Nintendo Wii. It has the proprietary Wii connector on one end and component video and stereo audio plugs on the other end. The cable allows you to connect your Wii game console into your TV or home theater. Note: The Wii console comes with composite stereo and stereo RCA audio plugs only.

480p Graphics: The Wii console is capable of 480p video output, however, you cannot enjoy the progressive scan video with the cables that come in the box. The Monster GameLink cable's component video plugs enable you to get the best video the Wii has to offer.

Technologies: This GameLink cable features the following Monster Cable technologies:

  • Component Video:
    • Heavy-duty Double Shielding: 100% Mylar and 95% copper braid rejects electromagnetic and radio frequency interference
    • Nitrogen Gas-injected Dielectric Insulator: maximizes video signal strength for the best possible picture
    • Silver-content Solder Connections: high-conductivity connections for optimum transfer of delicate low-level signals
    • 24k Gold Contact Turbine Connectors: provide greater contact pressure for improved conductivity and maximum signal transfer
  • Stereo Audio:
    • Split-tip Center Pin: provides greater contact pressure and ultra-low signal distortion for improved sound
    • High-purity Copper Stranding: for greater clarity and wider dynamics
    • SingleHelix Construction: dual conductors twisted in a special helical configuration reject EM and RF interference

Lifetime Warranty: The cable is covered by the Monsters Live Forever limited lifetime warranty. The warranty lasts as long as the original owner owns the product.

This cable is great

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
If you have a HD TV, you need this cable. The improvement in colors is noticeable, but the sharpness of the images is greatly improved. For those hardcore gamers, the rendering is a lot less blurring, so you can better enjoy the action. Nice quality cable, more long that the stock AV cable.
