This is it on Newegg...no HDMI:

Even D-sub should be fine though...if you've got DVI, you're good. The only difference between DVI and HDMI is that HDMI can carry sound, while DVI can carry an analog signal. Other than that, they are essentially the same thing with different connectors.

HDMI and DVI carry the same signal, so you can call them "HD" if you like. The difference is in the connector and DVI's lack of ability to carry sound. Get a converter and you'll be fine.

i have both dvi and HDMI cords. Is it worth it to buy an hdmi to dvi adapter and use it?

My brother might get one, so we just print that coupon and bring it to a store that has one?

It would make absolutely no difference...they're literally the same thing, as far as the video signal goes.

But are they one of those return it if you are not satisfied company, or one of those you have to have xx pixels to count as defective?

Chances are good you will get one without a dead pixel. I have had many LCD monitors and not one of them had a dead pixel. If you are really that worried about it go into Staples and ask someone. They'll probably have some type of return policy for it

The very first LCD monitor I got, I got a dead pixel, however, we bought about 3 other LCD displays, and they are all fine.
My brother got it, they said we can just return it for any reason within the 14 days.
