This is useless without an HDMI port. Like many people, I got rid of my CRT over a decade ago!

Are you not aware that VGA ports are still very much alive? I only switched to DVI a few months ago, and this monitor has a VGA port, as well. I'll admit I'm lagging the times a bit, but I've got two PCs with HDMI, and it's useless to me. I'd prefer HDMI on one, but the touchscreens I'm looking at don't have both HDMI and a reverse-wire hookup (for a car PC, to hook up a reverse camera separately to the monitor.) Aside from that, HDMI touchscreens are significantly more expensive.

Last I heard, the old-skool D-sub connectors aren't due to become deprecated until 2015.

I have three TFT monitors. Two have DVI and VGA inputs, one has VGA only. I also have a Samsung HDTV, which has four HDMI inputs, various analogue inputs, and a VGA input. So, a VGA-only device will work with 100% of my display devices; an HDMI-only device will work with 25% of my devices with a standard HDMI cable, or 75% of my devices if I buy an HDMI-to-DVI cable.

I'd say a VGA-only device is pretty useful, really...

Yeah. About a decade too late! VGA ports really needs to die. I hate them.

Imagine if projector and laptop manufacturers all switched to HDMI (and/or Mini-DisplayPort) 5+ years ago. We wouldn't be in the situation we are in now.
