    Any suggestions please for locally available USB-C monitors (~27 inches)?

    Am looking at:

    - 27" MSI Optix MAG272QP LED 165hz FREESYNC, HDMI DP TYPE C
    - 27" BenQ EX2780Q LED IPS 144hz FREESYNC, 2560 x 1440p, HDMI DP USB type C

    What third-party (USB-C) monitors are you currently using?

    Thanks.

    You can just buy a HDMI/DisplayPort/DVI display and use a USB-C to HDMI/DisplayPort/DVI cable

    Thanks. Was hoping to take advantage of the convenience of using USB-C to charge my laptop/other external devices while also outputing video.

    I think he wants a USB-C monitor so he doesn’t need to plug in his Mac. The monitor can charge his laptop too. Just one cable needed.

    By "plugged in" - he meant hooked up to a power source.

    ^That "one cable" does both. Connects and charges at the same time.

    I got a 14’’ Lenovo Thinkvision M14. It has 2 usb-c ports: one on the left and one on the right; both acting as DP and PD. It charges both the monitor and my laptop with just a single usb-c charger so I only need one charger for my laptop + external monitor, ipad pro and iphone via usb-c to lightning cable (via a 60w 2 port usb-c GaN-charger)

    My use-case though is to allow me to do multi-tasking while working from home. I was looking for a bigger screen but the price, portability and pass-through PD was the deal breaker. I have converted all my chargers and powerbanks to usb-c with PD and future protecting with thunderbolt 3 compatible devices.

    was about to buy a portable one during Singapore's Circuit Breaker (lockdown/quarantine)

    but all ASUS models were sold out and only AOC was available and I can't find any info if it will work with Samsung's DeX.
