BNC monitor connectors, how is it better

Discussion in 'Hardware' started by Martin Magnusson, Apr 19, 2004.

  1. I recently bought a Sony GDM-F520, which has both 15-pin and BNC
    connectors. I suppose I should buy a BNC cable, but in what sense is
    that better than an "ordinary" VGA cable?

    There is also a slight convergence problem with the monitor. Has
    anyone noticed this. I suppose that the changing the cable won't
    affect this.

    The image will be slightly sharper at high resolutions with the BNC connectors because of the higher frequency response of the BNC cables. Convergence is a problem with the CRT and is not affected by anything external to the monitor. Unless the monitor is a bottom of the line cheap model the convergence being off is a good reason to exchange it. A monitor with BNC connectors does not fit this description.

  3. Thanks for your answer.
    It's a Sony GDM-F520, but I bought it used (it was said to be 2.5
    years old). The convergence is not perfect, but it is probably better
    than my old Hitatchi CM611T.
