I assumed that would be the answer. So why do manufacturers made a full HD product without a full HD connection, doesn't make sense.
Anyway, the reason I was asking is because I have a choice of two monitors (same manufacturer). One is LED backlit without HDMI and the other is LCD with HDMI. Both the same price. I assumed the LED would give a better quality picture, but as it doesn't support HDMI I am back to the drawing board.
