Well, this is kinda funny. I use a composite cable with my PS2, and it's got better quality than either s-video or component/RGB, simply because I'm using a noninterlaced video monitor.
Commodore 1702, yo! This thing has a better picture quality than my uncle's new $12000 DLP projector, his panasonic HDTV, and any other TV I've seen -- and it was built in november 1985.
I'm not puttin y'all down, since it is pretty small (13"-14") but that quality is top notch. You can pick one of these commodore monitors up for a dime and a song these days, sometimes you pay more for the shipping than you do for the monitor. I'd recommend it to anyone playing on an older 13"-19" TV without s-video, it's cheap, it's definitely capible, and has superb picture quality due to it's fine dotpitch and non-interlacing tube.
(and for all you people saying NTSC is interlaced all the time, the PS2 is capible of putting out more than one kind of signal -- one of these days I'mma pick up a blaze VGA lead, and try it with my Viewsonic Ps775 (2048x1536@60Hz/1600x1200@75Hz -- 17" yo!) and check that out. But right now I'm broke, like a lotta sceners, heh.
And contrary to my lil blurb to the left, I'm not in california anymore
