Paragraph in lede, unreferenced and also not in body[edit]

"Although many devices still include VGA connectors, and VGA generally coexisted with the DVI standard, VGA and DVI are both being rapidly phased out in favor of the newer and more compact HDMI and DisplayPort interface connectors."

This needs citations and expansion. 04:43, 30 May 2017 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by 131.191.60.228 (talk)

I suppose, but DisplayPort, miniDisplayPort, and HDMI to VGA adapters are readily available. (With active circuitry inside.) The other direction is harder, so many devices have VGA inputs, while VGA outputs are being phased out. Gah4 (talk) 19:55, 11 September 2017 (UTC)

Most devices still include VGA connectors ...[edit]

It seems to me that many include the VGA signals in the DVI connector, and supply the appropriate adapter. Does that count as including a VGA connector? Gah4 (talk) 19:43, 6 September 2017 (UTC)

IBM[edit]

There seems to be edit warring regarding redirect vs. pipe. From WP:NOTBROKE the redirect is preferred except for a listed set of reasons. Seems to me that the exceptions don't apply, so that it should be IBM, but I don't want to add to the war. Someone please settle this. Gah4 (talk) 05:32, 28 September 2017 (UTC)
