I purchased a Dell computer for a friend who is not a computer guy and I am setting it up. The Dell Monitor has built in USB ports on the side and back. What type of cable do I need to hook these USB ports up? Normally I would think it would be a cable with two USB male ends. However on the back of the monitor I also see a little square port. Like the kind that would be on the back of a printer. Is this the type of cable I need, a USB printer cable?

Yes, one like for a printer. The different ends (thin rectangle and square-ish) are called USB A and USB B connectors.

I just got two new Dell 22" monitors at work, and the damned things don't have USB. I have my old 22" monitor sitting on my desk just acting as a USB hub until I can get a new video card.

Under confident conditions, Cobra USB is the best drive for using individually.......in downloading process is the high level...Dell USB Port on Monitor is the best one.

WTF is this supposed to mean? Spammer getting his post count up so he can link spam in his signature?
