I just bought my first lcd monitor. Its a Samsung 19in widescreen type.
So here is my newbie question. I notice that the dsub(15 pin analog) cord is fairly thin. It looks like a decent quality and has those things in them, i think they are called “chokes”. They help reduce any “noise” or electronic interference that may be around. But the cord itself is fairly thin.
Is that because lcd monitors dont use as much voltage and so the cables can be smaller?
And can these 15 pin dsub connectors be used on a crt monitor?
I would imagine they can but i have to ask as they do seem to be thin. Of course I have some older 15 pin dsub cables that came with crt monitors and they worked fine, so that is probably my answer.
Anyway, is there some correlation between the thickness of cord and the cords ability to work properly or not and can these cables that came with an lcd monitor be used on a crt monitor?
thanks for taking the time to read this and your comment is welcome.
