Been testing Polytron XCEL LED TV 24 inch as my Computer monitor display lately and I am using VGA port to connect it. What happen, if you are using LED TV as computer display monitor through VGA port.
Even nowadays, most of computers external graphics card have HDMI port, but VGA is still “Old but gold” for using it as display port. And most of latest brand of LED TV still have VGA port connection port hang on their devices.
But! Can you get full scaled performance from your GPU?
Can you still get the best performance for using LED TV display through VGA port to use it as display monitor for your PC / Mac mini or maybe hackintosh? ?
Let’s find out!
LED TV Display Performance Through VGA port
As I’ve test it out my self, connecting my desktop computer to LED TV as my display monitor that run dual boot Windows and Hackintosh. The performance is pretty good for colour etc except for scale, don’t expect you’ll get the full scaled display.
The biggest scale I could got is only 1366 x 768 in my hackintosh display setting.
And at first test, the picture is a bit flicker but after few times restarting my computer the flickers gone.
Is it because the GPU I that use?
I don’t think so
So it’s because the LED TV Brand?
No! is not!
It is because that’s the only scale VGA connection can offer for using LED TV as your computer display monitor.
Using HDMI Connection to Get Full TV Display Acceleration
So if you want to get the best performance of your TV display, then use HDMI port to connect it to your PC / Mac mini /Hackintosh.
Still using onboard VGA? then it’s time to consider to buy a new graphics card. Most of newest external graphic card have HDMI port built on it e.g NVIDIA.
But if you feel Okay with the scale you get for using LED TV as computer display monitor through VGA connection then, thats all you got. As ive mention above, the biggest scale you can afford is 1366 x 768.
My Personal Note for using LED TV As Computer Display Monitor Through VGA
The LED TV I’ve been used for my computers display monitor lately was Polytron XCEL LED 24 inch. Polytron is an electronic brand factory from Indonesia if you don’t know. And the factory location is pretty close from my home is about 37 min (20.6 km) to go there.
