I will start by saying that this monitor is quite an upgrade from what I had been using. Despite being 21.5", it is almost too big for where I need it. It sits between my desktop and my ICOM transceiver. I will have no problem at all getting used to this. The only issue I have is this. The package comes with two monitor cables, the VGA cable and a DVI-D Single Link cable. My current video card is an NVIDIA GeForce 7600 GT, which has two DVI-I Dual Link ports. This monitor has both a VGA port and a DVI-D Dual Link port. So, when I first tried connecting this monitor to my system, I used the digital DVI-D Single Link cable. This did not work. All I got while booting up was a small window on the screen momentarily containing the words "DVI-D POWER SAVING MODE". I just happened to have a VGA to DVI-A adaptor lying around, and therefore I am up and running with the supplied VGA cable. I will refrain from describing my experience with LG customer assistance "CONSUMER UNIT". Does anybody have any suggestions on why I cannot go digital with this setup?
