Gone are the days of cluttered work or play stations with a host of cables needed to connect peripherals. The newest monitors do so much more than simply display high-quality visuals.

Connectivity is now a consideration in the selection of monitors. Is setting up the monitor complicated and time-consuming? Or is it just a matter of plugging it into a PC or a gaming console and it’s up and running?

Will it be a problem hooking up peripherals needed for work? Not if the display has a built-in USB-C port or dock. With a USB-C cable, you can transfer data at lightning speed or even charge a laptop, smartphone, or printer while keeping your space clear.

The only connector you’ll ever need

With a built-in USB-C port, transfer of large amounts of data between devices takes only seconds. A device that supports the 3.1 USB is plugged into this port and transmits not only audio and video but power as well.

The all-in-one connector is the way of the future with transfer rates of 10 gigabits per second. It delivers bi-directional power up to 100 watts. This allows the charging of a variety of compatible peripherals – laptops, tablets, smartphones – while in use.

A home office can benefit from the latest monitor with built-in USB-C port precisely because it frees up space in the workstation even when using multiple devices and peripherals. Investing in a USB-C equipped monitor is all for convenience.
