Im thinking of getting the samsung 40" 1080p screen, and was disapointed to see it had no DVI input, instead it had a VGA in. IS the quality noticeably worse via VGA? Why did samsung drop DVI support?

Quality over VGA is great, it is very much HD capable.

However, HDMI is backwards compatible to DVI so you can buy a simple DVI-HDMI adapter or DVI-HDMI cable to connect your TV.

I understand that HDMI is backwards compatable, but i had heard that the TV overscans sources on HDMI, which is awful for PC display. Basically i will be using the set mainly as a monitor, and i've heard VGA starts falling apart at such resolutions.
