    Buy them! Unless you are quite good with a soldering iron, you will end up with:-

    1) A blob of plastic where you once had a plug
    2) Lots of cores joined that shouldn't be
    3) Burnt fingers
    4) Ulcers through the stress of working out what you've done wrong

    Been there, done that... and I AM quite good with an iron.

    looks good but do you know 15 pin vga is 10 + 11 shorted to the same wire or would you use 2 wires ?? also still need to know about the interferince blocks on it

    Plus the time, patience, swearing, and minor burns
