    Default 15 pin video cable?

    Does the 15 pin video cable still have value and is it as good as the other video cables, so does it make any difference if I use a 15 pin cable of something else?

    Default Re: 15 pin video cable?

    Its the old SVGA socket/plug.

    Nothing wrong with it for ~normal~ use.
    Longish cables or even cable extentions needed to be high quality or you'd get noticeable degradation
    Many people with dual monitors used both the SVGA & DVI ports

    Its analogue , vid/monitor connectors are trending towards digital : HDMI , DVI, Display port
    HDMI has the advantage of vid+sound, so one cable does both if the monitor has speakers
