A compact and portable 2-in-1 convertible notebook might be good enough for daily use, but some scenarios call for more. Sometimes, you need a more extensive, sharper display with brighter colors or a smoother refresh rate, depending on your task.
Connecting your device to one external display or more can give you the portability of one device plus a fantastic visual experience. The dual display allows you to optimize your workflow awesomely or enjoy a good movie with more friends.
For example, you could have a fully opened document on one display, and your inbox opened on the other one. Connecting to a dual display is possible because of monitor ports.
The five main types generally seen are USB-C, DisplayPort, HDMI, DVI, and VGA
USB-C is the most recent addition to the list, and it may replace the other types in the coming years. It has carrying power, can connect accessories, and its standards include both HDMI and DisplayPort.
You can use USB-C for dual display with the right accessories. With a hub, docking station, or adapter, you can hook up your USB-C device to two or more monitors at a time. In addition, there’re USB-C to dual or three DisplayPort adapters and a USB-C to HDMI connection.
If you want efficiency and ease of work from two monitors, you can get it even if your PC only has USB-C ports. Depending on what you plan to transmit or share across all screens, you can use one or more connecting ports.
Some ports can transmit only audio, while others can share audio or video feed, but the quality may be terrible. However, you can mix and match monitors if your laptop or USB hub has all the ports.
However, you need to pay attention to the compatibility of the devices to ensure efficient connectivity. Also, ensure you select the best input for each monitor’s specifications to get the best refresh rate and resolution from each one.
