MadCatz S-Video/Audio Cable any good?

Anybody have one of these?

It looks a little cheap, like there could be a lot of interference and all that. I want a S-Video connection for my GameCube but i haven't seen anything good.

If what the guys at IGN said is true, then there is no difference between the third party cables and the official ones.

But not all cables are the same quality, third party or not. Some set of s-video cables got a horrible rating from IGN because they were so under-insulated that they had interference problems. This is basically what I'm asking about these cables.

Personally, I would like a dedicated set. I don't want the extra clutter of the connection ends for the xbox and ps2. However, I think Monster cables are ridiculously over-priced. At the moment they don't have anything for GameCube anyway.

Yes, good.

If you can tell the diff. between this and 1st party then I would be REALLY impressed. This is a quality product for those w/ many systems.

Also, MadCatz used to be kinda low in terms of product quality, but I would have to say that in the past 1-2 yrs thier stuff has really improved quite a bit.
