reply from Samsung re DVI


J

john

Several of you were kind enough to answer my request for information
on DVI versus Analog input.
In addition to querying this group I dropped a note to Samsung. See
below
Refreshing to get a definite answer from a big company

PLEASE
No canned answers. If you don't know or care just say so.


Monitor 19â? LCD Samsung Model 193P-Silver. Has input for either
digital or analog hookup

My graphic card ATI AIW 9600 Provision for dual monitors but only
analog output ,no DVI.

Question, If anyone knows for sure. Would I see enough
difference/improvement to warrant the expense of switching to a card with
DVI provisions




Dear John


Thank you for contacting us.


The amount of visible difference between an analog and digital
connection on the same monitor is subjective, and will vary with both the
screen images being displayed and the visual sensitivities of the user.
Generally, text will appear to be more clear when using a digital
connection, but most users do not report a difference when viewing graphics
and images. We do not recommend the purchase of a new video card for the
sole purpose of adding DVI output to a system, since such an upgrade would
not add any more supported resolutions or refresh rates.

Exactly right.

I don't game at all, I mostly use my workstation
for video rendering (where DVI wouldn't matter)
and for CAD work (where it makes a huge difference).

If you have a Best Buy around, just TRY a DVI
card and determine the difference for yourself,
they take things back, no questions asked.

Yea, then they put it back in the box and sell a now used card to some
poor sucker. Sometimes people deliberately return the wrong card too.
Like they will buy a 9800pro and return a 9200 to the store for a
refund. Once a box has been opened the stores should return it to the
manufacturer but they often don't. I once bought a soundcard from
Radioshack that they swore to me had never been used before and yet
the card was defective and missig a serial number for one of the
software progs. It obviously was someone elses return. It's a shady
practice IMO.

It is but the shadiness is on the part of the store. They accept returns as
a normal part of their business and charge accordingly. If they then put
the product back on the shelf at full retail instead of selling it marked
down as used on their head it lies.

There are those who argue that using a store's return policy to determine by
test if a product is satisfactory is somehow wrong. It's not--you pay Best
Buy or CrapUSA a premium for this convenience. Without it, why do business
with them at all?
