    Hi,
    I have just brough a 22" LG monitor to use as a monitor with my MBP. The monitor has both a VGA and a DVi port on the back. I already have a VGA cable but was wondering whether it is worth buying a seperate DVI cable and DVI to mini display port adaptor. Is there a notable difference over using VGA?
    Any info/suggestions greatly appreciated

    On that size it's often hard to see the difference. On my 27" it's obvious.

    I think you'd have to try it to really know.

    For the price of the cable, I say go for DVI, although it should be noted that I haven't done a head to head comparison.

    $10.30, that is all you need for an all digital, DVI connection…. :apple:
