I see a few on ebay but they all say from Japan. Do they work and should I worry about fake cables? They say official.

any cable will work on any machine just like controllers, it's not locked like games.

PAL and NTSC S-Video cables are different. Here you can get a proper cable for your region: http://www.robwebb1.plus.com/n64/n64.htm

I have an NTSC console. I bought a $7 generic S cable off if Amazon. It was an improvement over the normal cables. Then I sprung for the official s cable. Did not really notice a difference over my generic.

Should I trust this cable? Do they sale fakes or this? I won't want to get burned.

Ok guys so tomorrow i'm either going to get a used S video Monster Cable on ebay for around 70 bucks.

Or I can get the official Nintendo S video imported from Japan on Ebay for around 50 bucks.

I'm dead set on one of those just to get it over with and have the best quality for my SNES and N64.

Anyone advice or comments? Really would love to hear what you guys have to say on this.

I know there are 3rd party ones but i was thinking just pony up and have the best and get it over with you know.
