Component cables vs. HDMI

What type of connection is best? By component cable or HDMI?

 
The two connections give similar results with no major differences.

 
With an HDMI cable, your television will get digital high-definition video and audio transmission with a single wire, with a resolution until 1080p.
 

With component cables (red, blue, green), it will get analog high-definition video transmission, with a resolution until 1080i.
 

Commonly used audio and video cables:

 

hdmi-cable   HDMI – With an HDMI cable, your television will get digital high-definition video and audio transmission with a single wire, with a resolution until 1080p.
