I bought a 19" Samsung panel and it works great but was wondering If I would
see any improvement by using a DVI cable instead of my VGA cable. Anyone
have any words of wisdom on this? Best buy wants $52 for a DVI cable so I
don't want to through my money away.

Thanks,

I have a 19" Flat panel at work with both DVI and VGA cables and I would be
hard pressed to tell the difference between the two connection types.

Bottom line is save your money you will not see any difference.

I can tell the difference on my Sony. I like DVI much better, I've had
both cables plugged in to my vid card at the same time and switched back
and forth, windows is much crisper. Games not as much difference.
Don't get it at Best Buy, http://www.pacificcable.com/DVI.htm have them
for $22.

Though I can notice the difference, I doubt if I would have bought the
DVI cable if mine hadn't come with one.

!!!!$52!!!! In New Zealand I can get one for $12 (~U.S$9.50)
http://tinyurl.com/6u2nz. Go to a local elecronics retailer man. Holy
Hell. $52! BTW, using the DVI on my monitor/gfx card is a huge improvement
on VGA. The colours are darker and washier and the text is not nearly so
sharp when using VGA. Actually some gfx cards output a better VGA signal
than others. Maybe mine's just plain lousy. However, the DVI output is
superb.

I have a Hyundai L90D+ 8ms 19" panel, and like some of the other posters, there
is very little difference between them.

I'm sure most users use the DVI cable for the same reason I do, they know that
in theory it shoild be slightly better. :-))

Mine came with the DVI cable, so no reason not to use it. You also often find
some of the monitor menu setup options are less when using the DVI cable, as the
monitor is capable of setting itself up easier with DVI... so some of the
options are redundant with DVI.

Ok, I thought I would share my results. I ended up getting a DVI cable for
$17.50 from
Cable makers inc. I notice that there is no longer any adjustments available
for auto focus
either on the Flat screen or via software. I guess because of the Digital
signal. I think I
can tell the difference especially in text. I think for $17.50 this was a
worthwhile
purchase. Thanks again for all your input guys.
