Does not having it impede its primary function?

Hardware

Quote from a 3/5 star PC Magazine review of the Samsung display I picked up back in 2007:

While I’m pleased that the digital port is HDCP compliant, I think a monitor in this price range should offer something more in the way of multimedia connectivity, such as an HDMI port or a card reader.

A monitor losing points because it doesn't have a card reader? No wonder my toaster only got 3/5 stars.

Sorry I couldn't resist, I've always wanted one of these.
