Bottom Line:   
This is the coax cable with "f" connectors. Excellent performance; I use it to connect my video equipment to cable feed and between DVD rec/player, svhs vcr, and tv. No rfi interference; great sharpness and color.

I note some misunderstanding in some reviews here about what a "coaxial cable" is, they are/are not "video" cables, are/are not audio, etc., etc. Checking out this AR with an electronics guy, we find that these are solid-core copper 100-ohm coax cables with RCA plugs each end. They can be used for coax video, audio, and data connections. I connected them to my VCR composite video out; sharp picture, filters out blue and gives tv picture a mild but visible magenta (pink) cast (If your picture source is bad to begin with, such as the typical, crumby antenna wire, don't expect much; this cable accurately reproduces every aspect of a poor source signal). With a good signal, picture is sharper but with a subtle loss of contrast that I didn't care for. But...surprise! Worked quite well as a digital coax between my CD and MSB DAC - very listenable, with slight loss of detail, slightly shallow soundstage. Mild glare in the upper midrange, but never harsh or bright (and I am comparing a $20 cable to a $200 high-end job!). Much better than the $80 Monster M1000d as DC-to-DAC cable. Also used this for DVD playback - HUGE improvement over the cheapies that came with the player, but I still didn't like the subtle magenta cast. Have to give this a "high 3" for both value and performance, though they are a giant leap beyond cheapo, maker-supplied cables. Can't go wrong for $20. Also beats any of Monster's video cables, which are truly disgusting. Want better? Start thinking about refinancing your home.

Great sound for the price. Well built and durable. Great choice without raping you through your wallet. Acoustic Research should dump the packaging, it's horrible.

Note to Brian and others: These are Coaxial Video Cables. Coaxial means the cable has a solid core instead of many small multi-threads like you get for speakers cable or interconnets. Do you have a VCR, Cable TV or a Satellite Dish. That black cable with F Connetions that connects the Cable TV or Satellite is Coaxial cable. The solid core is obvious if you remove the cable and look at the center core. These cables are the same basic contruction except they have RCA plugs. This is the proper type of cable. Solid core cable is the best way to get a good 75 Ohm cable, which is needed for good video. Yes, Digital cable is usually 75 Ohm and 110 Ohm. The 75 Ohm digital coax cable is basically the same solid core cable.
