The strange thing is LG only list W2230S-NF and not the W2230S-NFV and it is only 1366x768.

Is DVI better than VGA? If do, why? My video card has both

DVI is all digital.
VGA is analogue.
Can often be a better picture on the DVI connector than via VGA.

Some PCs have a poor quality VGA output whereas their DVI output is fine. The same goes for monitor inutputs as some aren't so good for VGA. The higher the resolution the more likely that VGA will look worse although I've never used VGA @ 1080P so can't comment on that.
My HP 20" 1680x1050 TFT looks good with both inputs except when using a Dell Mini 1012 which has a below par VGA output and lacks a digital one so it had to go.
It's just safer to buy equipment that has digital I/O as it removes one potential for poor quality.

I've never been able to see a difference between DVi and VGA even though there is an extra step to the conversion of Analogue to Digital.
#14
Cheap yes - but you get what you pay for. At Full HD an analogue input is no fun! And I would certainly prefer 16:10...

good spot op, thanks - altho the normal price for this at pc world is £83.41 according to google

http://www.google.co.uk/products/catalog?q=LG+W2230S&oe=utf-8&rls=org.mozilla:en-GB:official&client=firefox-a&um=1&ie=UTF-8&cid=6024948924369311620&ei=nc52TKWsH4Hp4ga838ylBg&sa=X&oi=product_catalog_result&ct=result&resnum=3&ved=0CCQQ8wIwAg#

which means £3 something saving, and as some are mentioning we have to add the postage cost on top.

in all a good deal for a 1080 res monitor - for those of u complaining about it not being dvi/hdmi you can get a dvi or even a hdmi converter for a few quid at flea bay - just a thought, was thinking fo going for this myself but not 100% sure

Yeah...but this won't be HDCP compliant, so you can forget using it for gaming or blu-ray movies.

1080p is pretty pointless without HDCP.

Hardly! I don't have any applications that require HDCP so it's pointless to Me.

Same here really... there's always talk about VGA being poor at HD resolutions and DVI or HDMI being better because it's digital but it often seems to be based on what people think and assume (digital must be better than analogue) but often haven't tried it..... I've certainly found very little improvement using HDMI or DVI - VGA is more than capable of giving excellent results up and beyond 'Full HD' and of course VGA was giving us higher than 'Full HD' resolutions for computer monitors for the last decade or more.

Of course it's not much good for HDCP protected content and DVI / HDMI is certainly worth having although for £90 with only VGA it's hardly the end of the world.

I also rarely hear complaints that HDMI / DVI takes a few seconds to lock and that can be a pain at boot screen or BIOS.... something VGA never suffers from :D

Yep, your answer is the nearest to being correct. There is one further step which is D to A. The RAMDAC of the video card performs the Digital to Analogue conversion but when the signal enters a monitor with digital display, the incoming Analogue signals are converted back to Digital.

This is the reason why VGA is potentially of lower quality than DVI or HDMI. Another detriment is that the analogue signal is not fully centralised on a digital display - after all, there is no concept of an origin for analogue signals so further processing is required to either auto adjust the picture to be centralised (or manually adjust in some cases).
