Hello! I just bought a new monitor and they gave me two cables, HDMI and VGA cable. What are these two cables for? What is the difference between HDMI and VGA cable? Can I use both at the same time because I think there is an option to use both simultaneously. Thanks in advance!

VGA cable will only transfer visual information to the monitor but HDMI could transfer both audio and visual signal. Normally, VGA can only connect to the computer but HDMI provides a variety of different electronic products, for example, you can connect with DVD / Blue-ray players, PlayStation, Xbox, mobile phones etc.

Yes, you can connect them at the same time but most of the monitor will not display image simultaneously, switching between different inputs is required. Please check with the manual.
