Cooler Master, a well-known manufacturer of computer cases and cooling components, has released a new budget-friendly gaming monitor – the Cooler Master GA2501. What sets this monitor apart is the fact that it features a VGA (DE-15F) connector, which many people considered to be forgotten.
D-Sub connectors, which include VGA, have their origins in the 1950s, and the popular VGA was introduced to the market in 1986. However, with technological advancements, digital connectors such as HDMI and DisplayPort replaced the VGA connector. Therefore, Cooler Master’s decision to reintroduce VGA to the GA2501 monitor is quite unexpected.
The GA2501 appears to be an ordinary monitor but hides this forgotten technology. It has a 24.5-inch IPS panel with Full HD resolution and a 100 Hz refresh rate. The monitor has a brightness of 250 nits and a matrix response time of 4 ms (GtG).
In addition to the VGA connector, the GA2501 monitor also offers HDMI 1.4 and a 3.5mm Audio-Jack socket. It can also be wall-mounted thanks to support for the VESA 100×100 standard and tilt angle adjustment. Unfortunately, height adjustment is not available. The price of this monitor is around 110 euros.
It is worth noting that the GA2501 is available in the European market but cannot yet be found in Polish stores. For those interested in this model, purchasing through foreign online stores remains an option.
