    By RGB I think you mean Component video? Component separates the video signal into three colors... RGB. It's the best quality of the two. If you have the means, I highly recommend picking it up. It's totally choice.

    I only saw Widescreens with RGB-in, i was looking for a 21" flat, It only had 2 scarts in the back and an AV input in the front.

    Yeah, that would be it.

    I think everyone uses that here, for VCR's, DVD players, games consoles etc, its the norm

    It usually comes with an adaptor, Where the 3 separate cables (Audio L, Audio R, and Video) convert to that scart

    You fucktard, S-Video is 10x better than Composite. In S-Video a analog/digital comb filter is still used, the same for composite, but the L/C signals are a scrambled mess. Component is three separate colors that are displayed directed to the picture tube. It's like a clear tunnel from your PS2/DVD player. S-Video is a tunnel that is filtered, and composite is like your sewage tunnel.
