Most LCD monitors nowadays sporting only a VGA input. Seriously?! The LCD panel is 100% digital and so is its driving circuitry, heck even the video card works digitally. Why force a lossy digital to analog and back to digital conversion step into the process when it's certainly easier and cheaper just to go lossless digital (aka DVI, HDMI) all the way?

I can't believe most small to medium sized consumer grade LCD monitors you can get in stores nowadays only provide analog video interconnects. Doesn't make sense from an economic standpoint either (plain digital would be cheaper since it requires less hardware).

In fact that has been putting me off from upgrading my 16" LCD to a 19" or 20" model. I prefer to wait and get a used LCD with a DVI input than a brand new one with just VGA. Surely I can't be the only one who feels this way.... am I? ::)

My screen came with both, so I'm pretty much indifferent to it, but I think it's a cost saving measure. The manufacturers must figure everyone either has VGA or has a little adapter to easily get it.  :(
Hey people, TRG still exists. Come join the meh-ness.

Our Vizio came with both kinds, including (I think) RF, AV, HDMI, VGA, & component.

Edit: Come to think of it, this brings up a subject that irks me - the emphasis on high quality video.

I was perfectly set with analog TV, but now when I play old gen games on that LCD screen, the quality looks really bad now.

I think this is the same reason why I don't want to get laser eye surgery - I don't want to see everything clearly.  I'm compulsive, & when I wear contacts I always find myself cleaning things.

C'mon, you saw it coming. :P Zing!

Freshmen.  And I don't mean like every single one.  I just mean the ones who come into high school thinking they own it or can do anything because they have a cool older sibling.  It's bull.  What I do like is how the teachers understand this though, which means if we have to yell at them or something, they look past it.
I like to glitch old VHS tapes and turn them into visuals for live music events. Check out what I'm working on - www.instagram.com/tylerisneat

Not as bad, but pretty annoying. He just sits at my table and does nothing, only because my friend felt sorry for him. He just looks... Eck. I was to scrub his face with steel wool.

Also related to annoying things: my english teacher.
