OK, I just got a new Asus monitor. I can plug it into my computer with Display Port, VGA, DVI or HDMI or Mini DisplayPort. Which would provide the best quality? It's currently connected with VGA (the easiest) and is working fine, but it seems to me that I could have better screen quality with one of the more modern connections. Which would you recommend. in order of screen quality?

Technician's Assistant: Which DVO product do you have?

C624BQ Could this be the number you are looking for?

Technician's Assistant: What have you tried so far with your DVO software?

No software came with the Monitor

Hello,

My name is ***** ***** I can try to assist you. VGA and DVI are older types of video cable technology. You will get much better quality results by using DisplayPort, Mini DisplayPort, or HDMI.

DVI has better quality video than VGA. DisplayPort cables are more standardized, meaning there is really only one type. However, there are different types of HDMI cables.

Some HDMI cables allow the transfer of audio and video. Using HDMI or DisplayPort will offer a better quality picture. Trying to figure out if HDMI or DisplayPort is better might depend on what type of HDMI cable you use.

To me using HDMI or DisplayPort is much better than VGA or DVI.

Thanks,

Aaron

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
