What the hell does Dell have against HDMI?

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
None of their monitors ever come with HDMI ports -_-
post #2 of 20
because they realized that:

1. it is the same signal as DVI, but it carries audio....and their monitors don't have speakers

2. Displayport is better, and costs less/none to license

Considering I don't need audio running to my monitor, I don't really mind.

And a lot of graphics cards come with DVI-HDMI adapters. Any I've bought in the past 3 years did anyway.

Well, if your looking at their budget line of monitors, that typically means people arn't going to be hooking up high end video cards, Blue ray players ect... to the monitors, so to save costs and keep the monitor price down, they cut out HDMI and just give you DVI and VGA. If you want HDMI, you pay a bit more for their higher end monitors
