What Video & TV Review of the PGV7000
The Oxy Pure Scart is attractive and meaty in equal measure. The plug ends are stunningly metallic, heavy-duty and gold-plated. The cable itself is wrapped in dark-blue nylon offset by a thin zig-zagging white line.
This cable's chief claim to fame is its use of OCC Copper, a new single-crystal material that's supposed to be thousands of times more efficient than its Oxygen-Free predecessor. The net result of this should be ultra-high speed signal transmission and extremely low loss.
The 24-carat gold plug ends are 100 per cent screened. Multiple layers of shielding are wrapped around the cable to stop radio frequency interference. At each end of the cable before the main plug end sits an EMI suppressor to weed out any electromagnetic interference.
Even on a relatively small 32in screen the improvements in picture quality are immediately apparent. Carrying an RGB feed, the Profigold cable delivers astonishingly vibrant colours - much better saturated than with a standard Scart, and also better contained. On a large rear-projector the impact is even more dramatic.
A composite video signal further emphasises this cable's class. There's noticeably less crosstalk, with cleaner lines and less overt dotty interference over small patches of colour. Improvements in sound are less easy to detect, because TV sound systems aren't really hi-fi enough to show up cable-induced differences.
The Profigold Oxy Pure Scart dramatically improves your picture performance, and does so at a seriously competitive price. What's not to like?
