Is it OK to have a XBOX 360 VGA cable from a Generic brand and not from original Microsoft?


I am planning to hook up my xbox360 console with my monitor(max resolution 1440*900) and considering to buy a vga cable from generic brand (cheaper) and not from Microsoft.So will there be any noticeable difference between display quality or so?

  1. You won’t notice it in very standard settings (600×800) though once you increase the resolution you’ll notice ghosting. The genuine microsoft cable is a lot thicker than a generic cable. I’m guessing there’s some sort of shielding in the cable itself.

    Anyway I already answered this question in great detail with pictures and a explanation.

    Here’s a link to my detailed answer.

    Short answer: Buy a genuine microsoft cable, it’s more than worth the price.

  2. No not really. Here is one thing and surfing around on the internet can back me up. There are some of the generic brands that are not good to buy. I can’t think of any off the top of my head at this time. But hey I have generic brand: hdmi cables, wireless controller, play and charge kit, I even have a flash drive that is generic brand as well. So my answer is no you will not see a display but the thing is the cheaper the product the less operating life it has. Make sense?
