Show seasonal allergies who’s boss

If you suffer from seasonal allergies, now is when they are at their worst. Stock up on allergy season’s most important products to keep your home, classroom, and office allergen-free. Start with an air purifier to strip the air of allergens like pollen and pet dander and replace existing air filters for improved air quality. Frequently dust, wipe down hard surfaces, and vacuum carpets and furniture to help eliminate pollen tracked in from outside and dander left behind by pets. When leaving the house, check the pollen count and bring a face mask to help filter the air you breath outside.

No matter what you do, it’s unlikely that the symptoms of seasonal allergies can be avoided entirely. Make sure to have over-the-counter cold and allergy medications on hand to battle symptoms, and stock up on facial tissues so you’ll always have one available when you need them.

Spring (Cleaning) is in the air

Spring cleaning and decluttering is a tradition meant to refresh our spaces for the year ahead. Staples has everything you need to clear out the clutter, store and organize your belongings, and all the right cleaning supplies.

Clear out the clutter

Start by preparing a checklist and make sure you have all the necessary supplies. Use storage bins and a label maker to make sorting and organizing easier. Prepare extra boxes for donations and trash bags for the things you no longer need. Look for decorative boxes & baskets that will compliment your home’s décor and use them to organize. You can also use closet organizers and storage drawers anywhere they are needed.

Start with the basics

An all-purpose cleaner, cleaning brush and microfiber cloths will clean most surfaces. Use a duster to remove unwanted dirt and furniture polish to revitalize wood surfaces. Upgrade your broom, dustpan, wet mop, and vacuum to make cleaning any type of flooring a breeze.

The nitty gritty

Spring cleaning doesn’t stop there. There’s so much you can do to reset your home:

  • Improve air quality and eliminate pollen and pet dander with a new air purifier and an air freshener with a scent you love.
  • On a sunny day, take the opportunity to clean your windows – you’ll need glass cleaner, a bucket, a squeegee, and paper towels.
  • Have a step stool or ladder on hand to access hard-to-reach places like the tops of cabinets and overhead lighting.
  • Replace broken light bulbs and check the batteries in your smoke detectors.
  • Use drain cleaner to clear up sink and bathtub drains.

HDMI vs DisplayPort vs DVI vs VGA vs USB-C: Every connection explained plus how to get 144Hz

Most monitors will have a range of different inputs available, and your PC or laptop will also use different outputs, so it can be difficult to decide which is the best connection to use.

Under most circumstances, you can get away with using whichever cable you have lying around – and whatever works – but if you have more specific needs, such as carrying audio, displaying a higher resolution or outputting a higher refresh rate for gaming, you’ll need to be more discerning with your choice of cable.

We outline the different types of connections below and give you different usage scenarios to help you decide. We’ll also outline the best connection and cable to choose for 144Hz and other higher refresh rate displays.

READ NEXT: Best monitor | Best TV

Here’s a quick summary of the connection types:

  • HDMI: Audio and video signal, best for TV to PC connections
  • DVI: Video only, perfect for older systems or for 144Hz at 1080p
  • DisplayPort (DP): The best connector for an audio and video signal, and can transmit 144Hz up to 4K
  • VGA: Old, legacy video connector. Only to be used when nothing else available
  • USB Type-C: Newest audio, video, data and power connector. The best connection for laptops and mobile devices

HDMI: The best TV to PC connection

HDMI, or “High-Definition Multimedia Interface” to use its full name, is one of the most common video connections. You’ve probably come across it on your television, set-top boxes, tablets, laptops and games consoles.

HDMI is unique among the many connection options in that it’s able to carry both uncompressed video and uncompressed audio. This is why it’s become the connection of choice for most multimedia devices as it’s a one-cable solution.

Other benefits of HDMI include functions such as HDMI-CEC (HDMI Consumer Electronics Control), which allows you to control numerous devices with one remote. For example, connect a soundbar to your television through an HDMI-CEC compatible port and the soundbar can turn on and off with your television and be controlled by a single remote.

HDMI has seen numerous revisions since its inception in 2002. Its most common version, used in most consumer devices at present, is 1.4 but there’s a newer, more exciting 2.0 specification now becoming more prominent. The main difference between the 1.4 and 2.0 specifications focus around bandwidth available. HDMI 1.4 has a bandwidth maximum of 10.2 Gbps/s whereas the HDMI 2.0 tops out at 18 Gbps/s.

The reason that bandwidth becomes important is due to the advent of 4K content. Due to the limited bandwidth of HDMI 1.4, only 24fps was possible at 4K resolution (3,840 x 2,160). Now, thanks to the extra bandwidth available in the 2.0 spec, up to 60fps at 4K resolution is possible. This also allows you to view 144Hz at 1080p (1,920 x 1,080) through a HDMI 2.0 connection.

Colour depth is also another area where the new HDMI 2 specification gains some advantages. Where 1.4 was limited to 8-bit colour, HDMI 2 has 10-bit or 12-bit available. This is important for when High Dynamic Range (HDR) content becomes more widely available.

HDR can be described as the ratio between the lightest and darkest parts of an image. Typically, with standard dynamic range, you’re losing detail at either end of the light spectrum. Expose a scene for the shadow detail and you end up with blown-out highlights or expose for the highlights and you lose shadow detail. HDR allows a greater range of detail across the full light spectrum.

You’ve probably already come across HDR through photography. Most smartphones now have an HDR mode where they essentially take numerous images at different exposures and combine them. As HDR has become part of the Ultra HD standard, you can expect more Ultra HD Blu-ray content to take advantage. The likes of Amazon and Netflix stream HDR content, tool.

More often than not, if you’re connecting something to a television, HDMI will be your best, and likely only, bet. Most PC monitors will also include an HDMI input. The good news, where it comes to 1.4 versus 2, is that you don’t need to rush out and buy new cables. To take advantage of the 2.0 spec you just need both devices on each end of the cable to be 2-compatible. Any HDMI cable will do, and we’ve already seen that there’s no difference in HDMI cable quality.

The thing to look out for are the different HDMI connection sizes. Not only is there full-sized HDMI (Type A), but you can come across mini-HDMI (Type B) and micro-HDMI (Type C), too. These are commonly found on portable devices such as tablets, camcorders and action cameras, where their physically smaller connections are required. You can either buy HDMI-mini-HDMI/HDMI-Micro-HDMI cables or you can buy mini/micro-HDMI adaptors so you can use your full-size HDMI cables.

Not pertaining to the HDMI cable itself but, instead, the HDMI connection on your device or TV is something called HDCP or “High-Bandwidth Digital Content Protection” to use its full name. The latest version of HDCP is HDCP 2.2, which is necessary for 4K content. HDCP essentially stops you from being able to connect a playback device, such as a Blu-ray player, to a recording device to make copies. This sort of copy protection has been around for decades.

You will likely find that your new Ultra HD/4K TV supports HDCP 2.2 on its HDMI port, but it’s not always for all of them. Some models will only support HDCP 2.2 for HDMI 1 and HDMI 2 inputs, so if you’re connecting a shiny new Ultra HD Blu-ray player, such as the Panasonic DMP-UB900 or Samsung UBD-K8500, make sure to use the correct HDMI input.

DisplayPort: 4K at 144Hz with audio and video capabilities

Until HDMI 2.0 became a standard, DisplayPort had it beat when it came to high resolutions. DisplayPort 1.2 has long been able to carry 3,840 x 2,160-resolution video at 60fps (or a refresh rate of 60Hz) and is the most common DisplayPort specification on most consumer monitors and devices now. This has 17.28Gbits/sec of bandwidth.

A newer 1.3 and 1.4 version, that both have a maximum data rate of 25.92 Gbits/sec, are both becoming more widely available. With the increased bandwidth capabilities, it opens up the floodgates to higher resolutions such as 7,680 x 4,320 (8K).

DisplayPort 1-1.1a is able to output 144Hz at 1080p, while 1.2-1.2a can output 1440p at 144Hz, 1.3 outputs up to 120Hz at 4K, and 1.4 can output 144Hz at 4K using Display Stream Compression (DSC).

The main advantage of DisplayPort is the ability to output to multiple displays through Multi-Stream Transport (MST). You can do this by daisy-chaining compatible monitors over DisplayPort or by connecting a DisplayPort MST splitter to your single DisplayPort output on your PC or laptop. You have to work within the bandwidth limitations of whichever DisplayPort specification you’re using, such as two 1,920 x 1,080 monitors over 1.2 or two 3,840 x 2,160 displays over the DisplayPort 1.3+ specification. As such, DisplayPort is often a great choice for those looking to use multiple monitors.

DisplayPort also has advantages where it comes to screen-refresh rates through AMD Adaptive-Sync/FreeSync and Nvidia G-Sync. This is what both companies have opted to use for their graphics implementation. Essentially this helps reduce screen tearing, which is of particular interest for gamers. At the time of updating this article, it’s also the only way you can run Nvidia G-sync on an AMD FreeSync monitor. Read more about it, here.

DVI: 144hz at 1080p

DVI stands for “Digital Visual Interface”, and is another common connection found on PC monitors. Things can become a little confusing when you consider there are three different types of DVI. There’s DVI-A (analog signal), DVI-D (digital signal) and DVI-I (integrated analog and digital signal). Not only that, but DVI-D and DVI-I have single-link and dual-link versions. Nowadays, DVI-A is very uncommon, as it’s no better than VGA.

The differences between single-link and dual-link refer to how much bandwidth the cable can carry. A single-link DVI-D or DVI-I cable can carry 3.96 Gbit/s, which tops out at 1,920 x 1,200 resolution. Dual-link, on the other hand, physically has extra pins on the connectors, allowing a maximum bandwidth of 7.92 Gbit/s and 2,560 x 1,600 resolution. Although DVI is still a common connection, it’s becoming dated, so if you want to output a very high resolution you’ll need to use HDMI or DisplayPort instead.

On the plus side, DVI-D can output a 144Hz refresh rate at 1080p.

VGA (D-SUB): A legacy cable connection

VGA is the oldest of the connections outlined in this article. It’s been around for decades, dating back to the days of thick, heavy CRT monitors of yesteryear. VGA stands for Video Graphics Array but can also be referred to as an “RGB connection” or “D-sub”. While VGA can technically output to 1,920 x 1,080, the problem is that it’s an analog connection, so as you push the resolution higher you get image degradation as the signal is converted from analog to digital. Unless you absolutely have to, use one of the other connections instead of VGA.

USB-C: The best laptop connection

With the release of the 2016 MacBook, Apple pushed the boat out and replaced all of its laptop’s connections with the USB Type-C connector. USB Type-C has been making a greater appearance within monitors, such as the Philips Brilliance 258B6QUEB that we reviewed, that has a USB Type-C input, making it the perfect companion for the 2016 MacBook.

What really makes the USC Type-C connector popular is its fully reversible plug, cross-platform compatibility (with new smartphones, tablet, laptops and computers), and its ability to not only output video, but also to transmit audio, data and power. This makes it an extremely versatile video cable, and we expect to see a lot more using it in the coming years.

How to combine HDMI, DisplayPort, DVI, USB-C and VGA

Most motherboards and dedicated graphics cards will have multiple outputs. You can use a combination of these to output to multiple monitors. So if you have HDMI and DVI outputs, connect one monitor using HDMI and the other using DVI. As mentioned above, if you’re using DisplayPort and your graphics card or device supports Multi-Stream Transport, you can daisy-chain DisplayPort and USB-C monitors, too.

If you want to combine the graphics outputs of your motherboard and your dedicated graphics card, this can be possible with certain Intel processors. This uses a “hybrid multi-monitor” mode but will be dependent on the chipset and possibly the motherboard used. You might also need to upgrade the BIOS to get it working. Intel lists the following chipsets as compatible in this hybrid mode: Hybrid multi-monitor support is officially supported with Intel Embedded Graphics Drivers for systems using the Intel Q45/G41/G45 and GM45/GL40/GS45 chipsets, or later.

How to get 144Hz: Which cable is needed for 144Hz?

At a glance:

  • Choose DisplayPort for 144Hz up to 4K – supports audio and video
  • Choose DVI if DisplayPort isn’t available – supports video only
  • Choose HDMI 2 if DisplayPort isn’t available or if you require audio over 144Hz (as DVI doesn’t support audio)

For those of us who game, you might be wondering what’s the best cable to use to achieve a 144hz refresh rate. There are various cables you can use, but you should pay close attention to the version of your output port and that of your monitor.

To get 144Hz, you should ideally use DisplayPort as it’s the most capable out of the bunch. Here, DisplayPort 1.0-1.1a is able to output 144Hz at 1080p, while 1.2-1.2a can output 1440p at 144Hz, 1.3 outputs up to 120Hz at 4K, and 1.4 can output 144Hz at 4K using Display Stream Compression (DSC). It’s the best connection to display 144Hz.

However, some older graphics cards and older monitors don’t have a DisplayPort output or input, but instead, have DVI and HDMI. Thankfully, these support 144Hz, but you’ll need to be wary of the version and the resolution you wish to output.

If you want to get 144Hz at 1080p out of an HDMI port, you’ll need to ensure that you’ve got access to an HDMI 2.0 port on both your monitor and graphics card. If your graphics card or monitor are relatively old, chances are, you’re using version 1.4 or below, where you’ll have a maximum refresh rate of 120Hz at 1080p. This is where DVI comes in handy, as it’s able to achieve 144Hz at 1080p.

No matter what connection you choose, you’ll want to ensure that you go into your monitor’s settings (OSD) to set the DP version to 1.2 (or higher) or HDMI 2.0 (or higher), and finally check your GPU settings are configured the faster refresh rate.

VGA cable – how to choose, test, connect and solder?

Computers and other equipment have been present in our lives for many decades. Music, movies, social networks, everything without which a modern person cannot live. When purchasing a computer, many are faced with the problem of assembling it, not knowing how to connect the VGA cable.

What is a VGA cable?

A VGA cable is required to receive an image on a computer. It was first released in 1987 by IBM. LCD TVs and DVD players are equipped with a VGA cable for picture but no sound. Produced by different manufacturers.

  1. It is used to connect to ports, connectors, monitors and video cards.
  2. Have 15-pin connectors: 5 at the top, 5 in the middle, and the remaining 5 at the very bottom.
  3. Finding out what a VGA cable is, we note that this type of cable consists of two blue plugs.

What does a VGA cable look like?

Standard wire with cord and connectors. The contacts of the latter are gilded, this is done to protect against oxidation. A pair of control screws serves to additionally fix the connector. The standard length of the VGA cable is 135 cm. The maximum operating voltage is up to 30 V, and the weight of the cable is about 85 g.

Why do I need a VGA cable?

The main task of the VGA cable is to connect the computer system unit and the screen, TV and DVD player. Each connector has certain parameters that are responsible for the image quality. The VGA cable carries an analog signal. It is easy to use, so, to get started, you need to connect one end to the socket of the system unit and the other to the monitor.

  1. Users often wonder if a VGA cable transmits sound? Unfortunately, it is only for images, and you will need a special audio cord to play sound.
  2. For analog signal transmission VGA cable is the best solution.

VGA cable – specifications

Today VGA cable is not as popular as it was 10 years ago, due to the fact that technology does not stand still, electronics is developing at a tremendous speed. However, many non-digital plasma TVs still support this monitor cable today. Competition between manufacturers of LCD TVs and plasma screens is growing every minute, with the advent of a cable capable of transmitting both sound and image, the popularity of VGA cables has declined sharply.

  1. A VGA cable has 15 pins, each with a different function.
  2. The connecting cable is popularly called “male” and plug-in connections are called “female”.
  3. The contacts are arranged in three horizontal stripes.
  4. Analogue signal, transmitted using contacts, “broken” into blue, red and green colors.

Pros and cons of VGA cable

A huge advantage of VGA cable is the customized flow of production in large quantities for over 30 years. This is the best cable for transmitting analog signal to CRT monitors. The pluses include an unlimited choice of various adapters.

Like any other device, the VGA cable has its downsides.

  1. Impossibility to transmit sound along with the picture, only video.
  2. The resolution of 1280×1024 px is the maximum, and when displaying an image on FHD displays, there is a high probability of distortion.
  3. If you use a poor quality computer cable, there may be interference.
  4. Not suitable for digital devices.

Which is better VGA or HDMI cable?

Differences between VGA and HDMI cables in connector, signal processing, and data transfer quality. VGA cable manufactured in 1987, modern digital devices slowly began to force it out of the market. In comparison, the HDMI cable wins.

  1. In 2000, HDMI, capable of transmitting digital audio signals, first went on sale, which significantly hit the popularity of the VGA cable.
  2. HDMI is currently the best analogue of VGA.
  3. The advantage of HDMI is that the digital signal is less susceptible to distortion than analog.
  4. The

  5. VGA is a great cable, but inferior in performance to HDMI.

What is the difference between a VGA cable and an SVGA cable?

VGA cable was considered one of the best for 256 color picture reproduction, but there is one thing, it was the best for computers in 1980. Over time it became less cost effective and was replaced by SVGA cable.

  1. SVGA monitors display 16M colors for more realistic games and better video quality. The biggest difference between a VGA cable and an SVGA cable is color reproduction.
  2. Unites them in the way the image is displayed on the screen – through a 15-pin connector.
  3. VGA cable is the past, SVGA is the future.

How to choose a VGA cable?

When buying a VGA wire, the first thing you need to pay attention to is the quality and remember that a high price does not always give a guarantee, but a too cheap option can fail. Many users noted that gold-plated contacts display a clearer picture on the monitor without interference, but this is not entirely true, nickel-plated or chrome-plated contacts work just as well, but are much cheaper.

  1. Check the product for defects before purchasing.
  2. VGA cable with retractable connectors is easier to connect.
  3. When choosing, the maximum length of the VGA cable should be no more than 5 m. It should be taken into account that the longer the cable length, the worse the image and more interference.
  4. If you really need to extend the wire without causing interference, you can purchase a special extension VGA cable.

VGA cable splitter

This product is popularly called a splitter. It is designed to connect two monitors to one PC, the image on them will be the same. To get started, you need a minimum of actions, connect the splitter to the VGA output and to the monitor. You can also add multiple screens.

  1. The splitter does not affect the resolution, it just passes the signal to a large number of sockets.
  2. VGA monitor cable is connected to the computer through the system unit on one side and to the screen on the other.

How do I check if the VGA cable is working?

If a VGA cable is included with a branded monitor, then the probability of its failure is almost zero. A wire bought in a store or ordered on the Internet cannot boast of a quality guarantee. A poor quality or damaged VGA cable will not be able to support high resolution video. Unscrupulous manufacturers, in order to save money, do not use all the connectors in the contacts. A multimeter is used to determine the health of the cable.

  1. To start the test, turn off the monitor and system unit, and disconnect the VGA cable.
  2. Insert the red and black cord into the multimeter, the black one into the port marked with plus, the red one into minus.
  3. Turn the multimeter to the “Ohm” position,
  4. The VGA monitor cable must be aligned so that you can see the connectors at both ends, they must be installed so that the wide side is on top.
  5. To calibrate the multimeter and reset the display, touch the red and black probe leads.
  6. Very carefully touch the black probe on the left edge, in the top row at the end of the cable. Then, repeating all the above steps, to red.
  7. Look at the readings on the display, the resistance must be greater than 0, but less than 20. If the multimeter reads 0, this means that there is no continuity between the two leads, the cable is damaged or defective.

How to connect the VGA cable?

This requires two monitor cables. After connecting the screen to the system unit, the power cable is plugged into the outlet. For safety, it is better to purchase a surge protector, it protects against sudden power surges. The second cable is connected to the video card socket. VGA connector is designed to connect monitors on cathode ray tubes. Modern flat screens are connected to the DVI connector.

  1. You can use a VGA cable for the projector.
  2. Before connecting to a laptop, both devices must be disconnected from the network.
  3. Insert the plug into the special sockets.
  4. Turn on the projector first and then the computer.

How to solder a VGA cable?

For this task, it is worth cutting the wire at the place where the break occurred and stripping it. Carefully solder the conductor and put a heat shrink tube on it. After soldering, evenly distribute the shielding braid on the outside, solder everything and glue it with insulating tape. The procedure is relevant if you do not watch high-definition video, but if you use a modern monitor, it is better to purchase a new cable.

  1. Too short VGA cable is not always convenient to use, it is better to choose an average length.
  2. Before soldering, take all precautions and keep children away from work area.
