    LCD Monitor

    When buying an LCD monitor Is it important to get one that will run on either digital or analog? What will the digital do for me?

    Digital is better but you must have a video card that supports digital output.

    For a overview of LCD monitors and information re the advantages and disadvantages try these links.

    Checking through the documentation that came with my monitor it said simply "This monitor supports both digital and analog. It is recommended that the digital cable is used for optimum performance"

    My 17" LCD monitor documentation also says the same, that the Digital feed gives better results than the Analogue feed. Personally, I couldn't detect any difference, because both are wonderful. I've left it on Digital feed because I always believe what I am told...! <img src=/S/nope.gif border=0 alt=nope width=15 height=15>

    This happened in my office. We can't really tell the diference between the digital and analog connections. (With high-end monitors, computers, video cards and graphical applications.)

    So I used the digital cable because they were newer <g>
