what is the downside to this being digital only rather than digital and analog?

From what I have read this is a DVI-D adapter (Digital signal only). What is the downside to this only transfering digital signal? Does this mean it wont play movies on the external LCD?

  • You cannot use it with any external device that requires an analog signal, rather than a digital signal.
