XBox 360 VGA vs HDMI vs Component
 

 
I know, it's a fully loaded question that'll likely generate dozens of different responses, but I wanna know what y'all think. I'm hooked up through component on a 23" Dell HD LCD @ 1080i. My 360 isn't one of the new ones, but I've been contemplating getting the VGA cable.

I'm upgrading to a 46" Samsung DLP soon that only has one HDMI port that's gonna be dedicate to my PS3. From what I've read, VGA is comparable to HDMI and supports 1080p. But in the meantime, is the VGA cable gonna provide a significant difference? I've heard the picture is sharper and the black levels are a lot more pronounced. So is anyone here running on it? Lemme know!

vga can do 1080p. HDMI is the best choice as it transfers everything within a single cable so less cable behind the tv, digital signal so less chance of interference, and when using it you know that you are getting the best possible picture from that cable. I've used vga on two different tv's now and hated it on both.

VGA is cool but your best bet is to go with HDMI. At Best Buy they have HDMI cables for both 360 & PS3 I think that I remember paying like $97 for mine & I love it its made by Psyclone. Thats if you want the best quality.

OUCH. I don't know if you have any friends that work in retail like Best Buy but you need to ask them to use their discount to get you cables. That price is insane. Literally the only reason you would need a higher end HDMI cable is if you needed it to be really long (over 50ft). The shielding on some of the cheap cables isn't sufficient usually if the cable is longer than 50ft, but on anything shorter than that you're just paying for a brand name and better looking packaging.

I finally got my VGA yesterday.. sh*t was crisp. I went and opened up the box real quick like a d*ck, and ignored the the PC Audio adapter. I was mad for like an hour wondering why I couldn't get sound without hooking up the red and left inputs to my stereo. blah.. whatever.. got it to work, and the picture was clear as fu*k.

there is one commn misperception.... that the component cables cannot go 1080p but they can and they look as good as HDMI. it depends on your tv and if your tv's component inputs can accept 1080p so dont bother with the vga thats for hooking it up to PC monitors if your going to get a new HDTV then use the components and make sure you tv supports 1080p at component level

i mainly got the VGA because I ran out of component inputs. I've only got 2 sections for component, VGA, and DVI, and of course, the composites. My TV doesn't have HDMI, and my Time Warner receiver and PS3 are hooked up on the components. So to avoid going and unplugging one unit to plug in the other, I bought the VGA and don't regret it. So yeah, I copped for multi-purpose functionality, and really not just picture quality. Despite that, I'm still very pleased with the quality.

well my only option is component

my xbox doesnt have vga or hdmi but my tv does let component go up to 1080p and it looks absolutely amazing. i just played SKATE on 1080p and i was fu*king blown away
