Connecting Playstation 2 To An Lcd Monitor Through Component Cable

Recommended Posts

I am sick of playing games on my old tv having RF inputs giving very bad picture quality.

So I decided to go for something good, if not the best. Offcourse the best requires me to have an HDTV which I won't buy because it is crazy to invest so much just to improve picture quality.

So I ordered a component cable for PS2 which would be here in two weeks time.

Now I want to know what do I require to connect my PS2 to a 19" tft lcd monitor through that component cable?

Please help me with specific links to the product if any.

Thanks in advance.

Ok thank you all for the suggestions..but still I am not sure, what will work...

Can anyone tell me if this is good enough for me to connect my PS2 to an LCD monitor using component cables.


Thanks in advance.

Please let me know as soon as possible because I have received component AV cable, and this XCM thing is quite expensive and don't want to waste that money away. The video shown on the link really lured me into placing an order for it.

Please help me with suggestions.


Okay, this was my post next to the above thing. But someone edited and merged it. Anyways. I have decided finally and here's my conclusion.

I went mad searching for the best solution to hook my PS2 up to my LCD monitor using component av cables and finally I can make a conclusion based on all my hard work and research behind it. Don't go for cheap VGA boxes, you will compromise with quality. If you want to make one-time investment and want to have the best one, simply go for the XCM Mega Cool VGA Box from team xcm.

I am going for this one and I found the cheapest over here:


If you have links of places where it is cheaper than this one. Please let me know. Thanks.

It's nice that you love PS2. And you will surely love this XCM Mega Cool VGA box too.

I can only say that PS2 is playing like never before. I had never imagined that I would be able to play all my PS2 games with such richness in color and enhanced picture quality.

The colors are truly beautiful through this amazingly Mega Cool VGA box. It is worth every penny I must tell you.

There is no lag whatsoever. You won't see any pixels like you see on SDTV. The picture is perfectly clear and the most important thing is the TEXT appears so clear that I jumped off my chair once the display appeared on my monitor for the first time. Every single character is crisp and clear, which was not the case on SDTV.

In the beginning before placing an order I was afraid about the quality and reliability of this product and the internet didn't help with any good reviews for this. But then I researched a lot, asked the experts and finally made a decision to go for it. And I don't regret a bit.

I was afraid because no one had reviewed this Mega cool thing for a ps2. There are lots of reviews for PS3, XBOX 360, Wii with videos. And they all look fabulous with this box no doubt. But the question was about PS2. Many said that I would be able to play only the games with Progressive Scan option with this box, which really scared me coz I was investing so much into this. That's almost the cost of the PS2. But I am very very happy to be lucky to find the best product.

I ordered this box, from play-asia, to take a look at full details and specs you may go here.

I will surely create a video and put some images, once I get my cousin's 5 MP camera phone...lol!

But if anyone out there has a ps2 and wants to play all those titles in full glory, this is the cheapest solution with the best results for sure.(Unless off course you have all the money to get an HDTV)
