Nyko PS3 HDMI Cable
The best way to get a high quality screen from your PlayStation 3 is with a high quality HDMI cable. This single cable carries both the audio and video signal to your TV in one 9 foot long package.
HDMI stands for High-Definition Multimedia Interface, and this signal is a straight, conversion-free, uncompressed signal that is as perfectly clear as possible.
This Nyko cable has 24k gold connectors, and shielding along the cable so that other cables and magnets don't have an effect on the signal. This is great for the signal - but the mesh cross lines along the length of the cable seem to make it unflexible. We have many cables here for all our systems and this is the stiffest cable out of all the ones we have.
Still, at 9 feet long, it is longer than several of our other cables and that extra length has come in quite helpful. Luckily we didn't need this segment to be TOO bendy and the cable was able to make the length work.
We already had a HDMI cable in place for our PS3 and to be honest we didn't see any eye-popping improvement by using this one. Certainly a HDMI cable in general will give you a gigantic improvement over using the old style yellow-white-red cables! HDMI is a wonderful quality level.
Still, I do believe in general in getting good quality cables - not going with the cheapest one you can get. Cheap cables we've used in the past have definitely had issues with interference and noise. It is well worth it to spend a little money on the signal transfer between your console and your TV, whatever cable system you're using. I was quite pleased with the balance here of the quality connectors and shielding with the relatively low price.
