Hi,

I have a new monitor with a DVI input, but my laptop only has VGA or HDMI output.

Obviously I can use the supplied VGA->DVI adapter; but I was wondering would it be better if I bought a HDMI->DVI adapter? What are the advantages?

Thanks,
James

I would just stick to the VGA-DVI adapter you would see no difference if you bought a HDMI-DVI adapter.

I'm with gengiscant here, I changed my new monitor from VGA to DVI input & saw no discernible difference.

I think there is a difference if you connect DVI to DVI, card to monitor, but not with an adapter.
