It's definitely more economical than finding another monitor with hdmi built-in.
If you have a Chromebook with DisplayPort, this will work.

What are the quality drawbacks? Isn't it digital, so either it's there or it isn't?

There aren't any quality drawbacks, more logistics and usage drawbacks. DP->DL-DVI adapters are notoriously finicky and somewhat unreliable in operation. Many Mac Mini owners have tried this, and while it works, it doesn't work all the time. There's sleep issues, display corruptions, just plain not waking up. None of them are lasting issues; a cold reboot usually fixes them, but it is annoying.
