Why don't all Monitors have Display Ports?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
As far as I know from reading, Display Port is the highest quality port you can use right?

Is DVI-D with DCHP comparable? Or is DP the best port out there? At least for 120hz+ & 3-D.

I thought hdmi was the best port.

DCHP is content protection (aka DRM) only affects the ability to play media, not quality.

Out of what you mentioned, DVI-D and DisplayPort have the highest capable display ratings in terms of bandwidth and framerate. Your monitor must also match these ratings as some monitors do not fully support the cables and devices that can be plugged into them.

DVI-D does not include a sound channel, but DisplayPort and HDMI do. This is useful when using a TV with built in speakers or a multimedia receiver.

To display 120 Hz 3D, you need to use DisplayPort or Mini Displayport or Thunderbolt or DVI-D Dual Link or DVI-I Dual Link. You can't use an analog DVI to VGA adapter either.

This is what I remember, correct me if I'm wrong.

Ah okay, then I don't know why 120hz monitors even bother having HDMI, that's just silly on their part.

Is there anyway to stop DHCP? I may just not buy Samsung's 700D because of this issue. How is it restricted?

They still have HDMI because some devices can still play on the monitor and use that connection type. It's on there for compatibility.

If the monitor is HDCP enabled, then it will play everything that is encoded with a HDCP signal. It's important to have if you're buying retail copies of movies. If you pirate movies, then it doesn't matter what your devices are certified for, they will all play the pirated content.

However, if your device is not HDCP certified, very unlikely, then you will not be able to play a movie encoded with that signal. This would be a movie purchased from retail stores with copy protection on it. HDMI devices, since 2009, should all be HDCP enabled.

regarding DCHP or HDCP read this

I can play any content, copy protected or not. My setup is a Samsung S27A950D, LG blu-ray HD-dvd combo drive, and a MSI lightning radeon HD 6970.
