Monoprice has released two DisplayPort adapters to easily connect two displays through a single USB-C port – whether you’re looking for HDMI or DisplayPort connectivity. In addition, one is currently for sale.
Monoprice, the company behind a selection of PC accessories and cables, introduced its new display adapters that can connect up to two 4K (3840 x 2160) displays at 60 Hz or a single 8K monitor, and they also support high dynamic range (HDR) ). On Windows laptops, expect multi-stream transport (MST), along with single-stream transport (SST) and mirror displays on both Windows and Mac models.
For both the DisplayPort and HDMI models, all you need is a USB-C port or Thunderbolt 3 host port with DisplayPort Alt Mode support. We haven’t tested these adapters, but the price tag makes them an affordable option for those looking to expand the number of displays your laptop can be connected to.
The two adapters are currently available from Monoprice, while the DisplayPort model is currently on sale for $20.99.
We have yet to test these, but the adapters should come in handy if you have 4K displays but a limited number of video inputs on your laptop. If you’re looking for even more connectivity options, you’ll also find USB-C hubs at a similar price to these adapters on our best USB-C hubs list.
