It's actually worse then VGA on my monitor (S24A350H). But when you buy a monitor that only has VGA or HDMI, you kind of feel cheated when you find out by testing that you can't use your HDMI, and you have to stick to VGA(is actually looking worse). And you kind of start asking yourself, "shouldn't I have remained with my old monitor so I don't have to downgrade from DVI to VGA?"WHY would you want to use HDMI on a freaking PC monitor? Thats like using VGA on a pc monitor.
