Monitor Connector Preferences

When it comes to connecting a computer to a monitor, you have a lot of choices these days.  Recently I was asked what I would use, and I made a list of my preference in descending order, depending on what is available:

  1. DVI to DVI
  2. HDMI to HDMI or DVI to HDMI (using adapter or special cable)
  3. Etch-A-Sketch controlled by an artistic robot that draws a representation of what is on your screen
  4. 15-pin analog VGA to whatever
