It means he does not know what you are saying/asking.

Look for a response time of about 25ms.

IF you can go and see the monitor yourself its the best way to do it.

The connections of DVI and DSUB are different. A DSUB will not fit in a DVI and visa versa. You need a graphics card (with a DVI output) also to take advatnage of the DVI that the TFT has.

see click here

The 'usual onnection' - a 15 pin socket is the standard for a CRT monitor - using analog signals.

The new, (better?) connection is using a DVI - Digital Visual Interface. This keeps the signal in its digital form, presumably better as it saves on DAC then ADC at either end?

As far as the consumer end goes, I think the Digital input screens are a bit more expensive, but not being in the market for one, I dont know how much and if it makes any difference.

One thing - you will obviously need a DVI out on your graphics card - or a special adaptor.

I think what Graham was trying to get at was your use of "txt talk" - does it really hurt to use full words?

I think
