Best USB-C and Thunderbolt displays for Mac [October]

USB-C/Thunderbolt display options have really grown over the last couple of years. While Apple is making its own monitor again with the Pro Display XDR, it’s not the best fit for the majority of Mac users with a starting price of $5,000 (without a stand). Let’s take a look at some of the best USB-C/Thunderbolt displays available in the $400-$1,500 range.


Update October 11: We haven’t seen anything notable in the 4K+ resolution space with USB-C recently. But LG’s high-end UltraFine OLED Pro display launched in August. We also saw some affordable new options from LG and Samsung earlier this year. Check out all the details below.

Another thing to keep in mind, Apple is expected to launch its new 14- and 16-inch Apple Silicon MacBook Pro updates this month which will hopefully come with native dual-display support. Meanwhile, Apple is also testing a new external monitor that will feature a dedicated A13 chip.


All the displays below work great for a single-cable setup with your MacBook Pro, MacBook Air, and PCs. The iPad Pro and 2020 iPad Air can also be used with any of these USB-C/Thunderbolt displays but with limitations.

Even though Apple’s 6K Pro Display XDR is a fantastic product (full review), the reality is that at $5,000+, it’s overkill for many MacBook owners’ needs, budgets, or both.

Notably, one trend we’re seeing — that Apple adopted with the Pro Display XDR — is a 32-inch screen size. Fortunately, there are some solid 32-inch options from other companies in the $1,000 ballpark that offer a compelling experience. And we’ll also look at some 27-32-inch 4K USB-C displays in the $400-$600 range.

LG 32UL950-W

LG 32UL950 UltraFine 4K Display Review 01

This is LG’s UltraFine 32-inch display that includes a solid feature set like two Thunderbolt 3 ports plus two USB-A ports, slim bezels, support for use in portrait orientation, and more.

In his full review, my colleague Jeff Benjamin found he liked the design better than LG’s other UltraFine models with many of the same features.

Specs:

  • 31.5-inch UHD 4K display (3840 x 2160)
  • Refresh rate 60Hz
  • Nano IPS with DCI-P3 98%
  • VESA DisplayHDR™ 600
  • Dual Thunderbolt 3 ports (in x 1 (PD 60W) / out x 1)
  • 4K Daisy Chain with Thunderbolt™ 3
  • 2 x USB-A
  • DisplayPort 1.4
  • HDMI 2.0
  • 3.5mm headphone output
  • MSRP: $1,300

The LG 32UL950-W can be found on Amazon as well as other retailers like B&H Photo.

LG 34BK95U-W

Moving up a couple of inches, LG’s 34-inch widescreen Thunderbolt 3/USB-C display offers a 5120 x 2160 resolution (in-between 4K and 5K). Jeff reviewed this display and found it to be a compelling option for creative pros.

But if you’re a creative professional who knows what you’re getting yourself into, this display is a significant real estate upgrade from 4K. Just make sure you understand that this is really a 4.5K display, and it doesn’t offer any resolution advantages over a true 5K display like the one found in the 5K iMac or iMac Pro.

Specs:

  • Nano IPS (In-Plane Switching) Panel
  • Thunderbolt 3 Interface
  • Power output: 85W
  • 5120 x 2160 Resolution
  • 21:9 Aspect Ratio
  • 60Hz Refresh Rate
  • Brightness: 450 (Typ), 360 (min) cd/m2
  • Support for VESA HDR 600
  • DCI-P3 98%
  • 2 x HDMI
  • 1 x DisplayPort
  • 2 x USB 3.0
  • 3.5mm headphone input
  • Speakers: 5W x 2
  • Slim bezel design on all four sides
  • MSRP: $1,649, but often available for less

The LG 34WK95U-W is usually in stock at Amazon and B&H Photo.

BenQ PD3220U

BenQ PD3220U 4K Thunderbolt Display

This is a nice alternative to the LG options above. The 32-inch BenQ PD3220U features Thunderbolt 3, 4K resolution, 95% DCI-P3 color, 85W power delivery for MacBooks, a variety of professional modes, hotkey puck, solid metal stand, and lots of I/O.

Specs:

  • 3840 x 2160 Resolution
  • 16:9 Aspect Ratio
  • 60Hz Refresh Rate
  • Brightness: 250 typical, 300 nits HDR peak
  • DCI-P3 98%
  • HDR10
  • 1 x Thunderbolt 3 – 85W power delivery
  • 1 x Thunderbolt 3 – 15W power delivery
  • 2 x HDMI 2.0
  • 1 x DisplayPort 1.4
  • 3 x USB 3.1
  • 1 x USB C
  • 1 x USB B
  • Headphone jack
  • Slim bezels
  • MSRP: $1,199 but often available for less

You can usually find the BenQ PD3220U at Amazon and BH Photo.

Dell UltraSharp U4021QW – New for 2021

This is Dell’s latest 4K USB-C/Thunderbolt 3 display and it features a 40-inch curved screen. This is technically a 5K2K resolution but for those looking for a large screen size, it may be a good fit. 

Specs:

  • 39.7-inch curved 4K (5K2K) display (5120 x 2160 @ 60Hz)
  • 140 PPI
  • 21:9 aspect ratio (mislabeled as 16:9 on Dell website)
  • 90W pass-thru power
  • DCI-P3 at 98%
  • Suggested retail price: $2,099 – often available for less

Dell also makes the UltraSharp in 32-inch and 27-inch versions.

LG UltraFine OLED Pro – New for August

LG UltraFine OLED Pro display launch date

The new LG UltraFine OLED Pro Monitor is a 32-inch USB-C display with a 27-inch version coming later this fall.

The move to OLED is interesting. While there are some benefits like blacker blacks, and more, there may be concerns about display burn-in.

BH Photo was the first retailer to sell the UltraFine OLED Pro with a $3,999 price tag starting on August 12. The initial stock sold out fast and at the time of writing will, it will be available again from early October.

Specs:

  • 27 and 31.5-inch OLED screen options (27-inch coming this fall, 32-inch now available)
  • 3840 x 2160 4K resolution
  • USB-C with 90W pass-thru power
  • up to 500 nits brightness
  • Dolby HDR 400 True Black
  • 1 ms response time

  • 3 x USB
  • 1 x HDMI

Apple-endorsed LG UltraFine displays

LG UltraFine 24- & 27-inch Displays

While the 27-inch UltraFine display (reviewed) is really the only option on the market to support USB-C/Thunderbolt 3 at a full 5K resolution, the $1,300 price may make this a tough sell for some, especially since it hasn’t changed since 2016.

Another trade-off here is chunkier bezels for a built-in webcam, although these displays do offer a solid I/O setup. Another aspect that sets these displays apart is P3 wide color gamut and 85W power delivery.

The current models are the 5K 27-inch and the 4K 24-inch UltraFine displays.

At almost half the price, the 24-inch 4K UltraFine is a compelling option for an Apple-endorsed display. The 24-inch version replaced the 21.5-inch 4K model last May and retails around $700. Check out our full review here.

If you’re tempted by these displays, you can also keep an eye out on 9to5Toys, where we’ve seen certified refurbished models of the $1,300 5K display go for as low as $550.

Best USB-C/Thunderbolt displays on a budget

While there are some solid displays on the market that include USB-C with less than 4K resolutions, spending several hundred dollars on a new display with a lower picture quality than what you’re used to on your MacBook won’t be a good fit for many.

Here are some of the best USB-C displays that offer a 4K resolution at $600 or less.

LG 32-inch 32UP550-W – New for June

This new budget release from LG is a more compelling option than its older 27-inch 4K 27UK850. The 32UP550-W features a 32-inch screen, 4K resolution, USB-C, 96W power delivery, and more.

Specs:

  • 1 x USB-C with 96W power delivery
  • 2 x HDMI
  • 1 x DisplayPort
  • 2 x USB 3.0
  • 1 x headphone jack
  • 16:9 aspect ratio
  • 60Hz refresh rate
  • Up to 350 nits brightness
  • 3840 x 2160 resolution
  • DCI-P3 at 90%
  • HDR10
  • Anti-glare finish
  • MSRP at $450

This 32-inch affordable 4K USB-C display from LG is available to order on Amazon now with deliveries shipping out starting in July.

LG 27UK850

  • best 4K USB-C displays
  • best 4K USB-C displays

This 4K USB-C display is the successor to LG’s older 27UD88 model that we reviewed a few years back. The 27UK850 27-inch model features an LED-backlit IPS panel with HDR10 support, AMD Freesync, and single-cable USB-C connectivity.

The 27UK850 offers two USB 3.1 ports, but like the previous model, when running 4K at 60Hz, you’re limited to USB 2.0 speeds. It would have been nice to see 87W power delivery for full-speed 15-inch MacBook Pro charging, but that shouldn’t be an issue for most users.

  • 1 x USB-C v. 3.1 with 60W PD
  • 2 x HDMI
  • 1 x Display Port
  • 2 x USB v. 3.1 gen1
  • 3.5 mm audio port
  • 16:9 aspect ratio
  • 60Hz refresh rate
  • 3840 x 2160 resolution
  • sRGB 99%
  • AMD Freesync
  • Anti-glare finish
  • Usually available around $500-$600

For a more in-depth look at this display, check out our review here.

The LG 27UK850 is available on Amazon.

Samsung 32- and 43-inch Smart Monitor M7 – New for May

  • Samsung Smart M7 USB-C display

New for May 2021, Samsung has launched a 43-inch version of the Smart Monitor M7 with the same overall specs as its smaller 32-inch brother that will come in at $600.

You’re getting some great features at a budget price point like 4K resolution, USB-C, AirPlay 2, and more. However, it sounds like picture quality is not its strongest point.

You’re also not getting things like a 3.5mm audio jack, DisplayPort, and brightness is just 300 nits.

  • 1 x USB-C with 65W PD
  • 2 x HDMI
  • 3 x USB 2.0
  • 16:9 aspect ratio
  • 60Hz refresh rate
  • 300 nits brightness
  • 3840 x 2160 resolution
  • sRGB 99%
  • HDR10
  • Anti-glare finish
  • Smart TV features including AirPlay 2
  • MSRP at $400 for 32-inch, $600 for 43-inch

You can learn more about the 32- and 43-inch Samsung M7 on the company’s website and find it for sale at Best Buy (43-inch not showing up just yet).

ASUS Designo

  • best 4K USB-C displays
  • best 4K USB-C displays

 

This display offers almost all of the same features as LG’s UK850 with a little different aesthetic. The LED-backlit IPS panel doesn’t feature HDR10 support and AMD FreeSync, but otherwise, its specs stack up almost identically.

  • 1 x USB-C v. 3.1 with 60W PD
  • 1 x HDMI
  • 1 x DisplayPort
  • 3.5 mm audio port
  • 2 x USB v. 3.1 gen1
  • 16:9 aspect ratio
  • 60Hz refresh rate
  • 3840 x 2160 resolution
  • 100% sRGB
  • Eye Care blue light filter
  • Anti-glare finish
  • Usually available around $500

ASUS Designo is available on Amazon.

Holding Out?

Thinking of waiting a while longer to see what other manufacturers offer over the coming months? If you feel like you can’t compromise on a 4K resolution but are open to saving some cash by skipping the USB-C/Thunderbolt connectivity, Philips has a 27-inch 4K display for quite a bit less than the price of the other displays on this list. AOC also makes a comparable 27-inch 4K option.

Also, Apple is reportedly working on a more affordable self-branded display more akin to its retired $999 Thunderbolt Display. And there’s also a new external monitor Apple is testing that comes with an A13 chip.

Sidecar

Another option if you want to wait a bit longer on picking up a new external display, make use of the great macOS Sidecar feature that lets you use an iPad as a secondary display.

Best USB-C monitors in 2021

USB-C monitors are a fast-growing market because you get high resolution, high-speed Data transfer, and charging abilities all from one cable. Most USB-C monitors also work as docking stations because they come with multiple ports, which frees up space in your work area. 

The other reason why USB-C monitors are an advantage is the size of the port is minuscule, and most new devices have multiple USB-C ports which can be used for Data, charging, and display. USB-C is the jack of all trades set up that grants users far more options. You can even connect multiple monitors via USB-C cable and then to your device, creating a chain link of monitors. It’s all very sexy stuff, so let’s get into which USB-C monitors we feel give you the best options and bang for your buck.

Just got word we will be adding a few more monitors shortly, including portable options that make working on the go even easier. 

Why buy a USB-C monitor? 

You may be wondering why I would need a USB-C monitor? What are the advantages? Are there disadvantages, who are you to tell me what to buy? We are the crack staff at Laptop, along with our mad scientist in the lab who do all the due diligence in advance to help you select what best suits your needs. So let me break it down to you. 

The main advantage most USB-C monitors have is the ability to use one connection for video, data, and charging, which is a game-changer as it frees up space in your work area. The other advantage is most USB-C monitors also act as docking hubs as they trend towards having multiple USB ports, HDMI, Display ports, and audio ports. Some even come with built-in cameras and speakers. 

As we all know, sometimes we use more peripherals than our laptop or desktop may have ports to support, so having the option to use one cable from your computer to your monitor that then allows you to connect multiple devices to your computer via the monitor, is a fantastic and freeing option. 

Lastly, USB-C monitors tend to come with higher resolution, which we all love and use, especially those working with graphics, photos, and video. Plus, the ability to charge your laptop once you're connected is a huge bonus means there's no need to carry the laptop's charger with you, which can often be bulky and cumbersome.

Specifications

Display: 27 Inches

Resolution: 3840 x 2160

Max Refresh Rate: 60Hz

Response Time : 5ms

Reasons to buy

+Native 4K Resolution+Wide Color Gamut coverage+Good port Selection+Flexible design

Reasons to avoid

-Could be brighter

With a beautiful 4K panel focused on color accuracy, a very user-friendly amount of adjustability, and an ergonomically pleasing design, the fact that the Dell UltraSharp 27 4K USB-C Monitor (U2720Q) only costs $539 is shocking. Targeting creative professionals and people that place a high value on productivity, the monitor has a healthy amount of ports, which create a productivity-enhancing atmosphere for those working with high-end color graphics, photos, and video.

The Dell Ultrasharp 27 4K U2720Q is a business workflow beast. The monitor offers many connection options with its wide array of ports.

Max Refresh Rate: 60Hz

Response Time: 5ms

Reasons to buy

+Bright, vivid matte screen+100W power delivery via USB-C+Plenty of ports+Flexible design+Slim bezels+Built-in IR camera

Reasons to avoid

-Pricey-Poor webcam quality-No internal speakers

The HP E27d G4 is a great monitor for mobile professionals looking to upgrade their home offices. What it lacks in top-tier specs is offset with enterprise features, like an anti-glare panel, IR camera for facial recognition and 100W power delivery. 

Those additions make the E27d a practical option. Just plug in your laptop with the included USB-C cable then use the IR webcam to instantly log in. From there, enjoy the bright and vivid reflection-free 27-inch screen all while your laptop is being charged.

3. Asus ZenScreen MB16AC

Specifications

Display : 15.6 Inches

Resolution: 1920 x 1080

Max Refresh Rate : 60Hz

Response Time: 5ms

Reasons to buy

+Portable+Works with any laptop+Great software

Reasons to avoid

-Confusing stand-Dim

Throw this monitor in your bag, and you'll have a second display wherever and whenever you need it. The USB-C connection powers the display, so you don't have to worry about finding an outlet. Boasting Thunderbolt 3 compatibility and autorotation, the ZenScreen makes a compelling argument for getting a second monitor. While this model is marketed as a travel monitor, it's flat design makes the screen fragile, so you should always keep it protected before putting it in your backpack or suitcase.

4. LG 49WL95C-W monitor

Specifications

Display: 49 Inches

Resolution: 5120 x 1440

Max Refresh Rate: 60Hz

Response Time: 5ms

Reasons to buy

+Ultrawide display provides the most detail of any display on the list

Reasons to avoid

-Expensive-USB-A inputs sole USB-C used for display

The big daddy of USB-C monitors, the LG 49WL95-W targets deep-pocketed professionals and the enthusiast crowd. This panel has a gorgeous 5120 x 1440 resolution, which makes 4K look rather quaint. This resolution is overkill for the average user — but hey, if you've got it, flaunt it. The LG offers two USB-A ports, with the sole USB-C port for display only. 

If you work on projects with sequential program layouts, the extra space granted by this behemoth ensures that the entirety of your timeline will fit on the screen without the need for zooming out. And as this display boasts 99% of the sRGB gamut, you'll see every color pop. 

5. BenQ EW3270U monitor

Specifications

Display: 31.5 Inches

Resolution: 3840 x 2160

Max Refresh Rate: 60Hz

Response Time: 4ms

Reasons to buy

+Gaming-optimized monitor

Reasons to avoid

-No power provided from USB-C

Offering the ability to adjust brightness and color temperature based on the content on screen and ambient light conditions, the BenQ EW3270U will ensure that your games will always be optimized. FreeSync guarantees the smoothest graphics at all times. For games in which every detail is important and stutter must be avoided, BenQ provides a solid display that would be ranked even higher with the addition of power delivery. 

6. Asus Designo MX27UC 27-Inch Monitor

Specifications

Display: 27 Inches

Resolution: 3840 x 2160

Max Refresh Rate: 75Hz

Response Time: 5ms

Reasons to buy

+ASUS Eye Care technology minimizes eye fatigue+Rich speaker system

Reasons to avoid

-Poor customer service-Pricey

You can stare at this screen all day — literally. Thanks to Asus Eye Care technology, which reduces eye strain, you can work for hours in relative comfort. Now, you can use those sweet peepers of yours to admire your uncluttered, single-cable setup. The USB Type-C port gives you power delivery, 4K video and data transmission. Dual 3-watt speakers paired with optimized sound will impress the average user and deliver the rich, spacious sound audiophiles crave. 

An elegant, icicle-gold finish encompasses the whole package and complements premium laptops such as a gold MacBook Pro. If you're looking for a monitor with USB-C functionality, impressive external speakers and a slick aesthetic, look no further than Asus' Designo. 

7. Lenovo ThinkVision M14t

Specifications

Display: 14-inches

Resolution: 1920 x 1080

Max Refresh Rate: 60Hz

Response Time: 6ms

Reasons to buy

+Colorful and bright display+Lightweight design+Active Stylus is fantastic+Sturdy kickstand

Reasons to avoid

-Cons-A bit pricey-Glossy screen is reflective-Could use another port

The Lenovo ThinkVision M14t offers excellent image quality; it’s wonderfully light and has a sturdy kickstand. The touchscreen works exceptionally well and can be helpful under the right circumstances. The included Active Pen also makes the ThinkVision M14t a standout with its excellent features and 4,096 levels of pressure. The plug-and-play ThinkVision M14t worked with every laptop I plugged connected it to flawlessly. The ThinkVision M14t’s 1920 x 1080-pixel screen produced stunningly vibrant colors and super sharp images. I was shocked it wasn’t a 4K panel.

However, although everything about the ThinkVision M14t is premium, some may find the near $400 price steep for something that’s just a portable screen with only two USB-C ports. Still, it’s the secret weapon for workaholic travelers.

This 4K display delivers beautiful picture quality with High Dynamic Range support, AMD FreeSync and Opt-Clarity technology, making it great for streaming movies and shows as well as casual gaming.

Aspect ratio: 16:9

Reasons to avoid

-Expensive-Thick bezels

Fledgling content creators will find a great value in the LG UltraFine 24MD4KL-B, if they’re looking for the best USB-C monitor that won’t break the bank. This 4K display’s high resolution and color accuracy get things done while its USB-C and Thunderbolt 3 is a boon for Apple fans. It’s still pretty pricey, especially for everyday users. However, it’s a pretty good purchase for content creators, especially if you’re used to more expensive models. Though you do have to compromise with a smaller screen size and thicker bezels. If you’re working with a smaller desk space, this is definitely ideal.

Viewing angle: 178/178

Contrast ratio: 1,000:1

Color support: 99% AdobeRGB, 95% P3, 100% sRGB

Weight: 25.6kg

Reasons to buy

+Improved brightness and colour uniformity+USB-C connectivity+Hardware calibration with 16-bit LUT precision

Reasons to avoid

-Main connection bay is hard to reach-‘Paper Color Sync’ needs refining to be truly useful

Pro-level displays are no longer the premium priced, inaccessible purchase they started out to be. At least as far as the BenQ SW321C PhotoVue is concerned. This 32-inch 4K photo monitor is up a step or two in terms of both performance and usability, featuring an incredibly wide color gamut of 99% of the Adobe RGB color space and 95% of DCI-P3. If you’re in the cinematography or photography sphere, that’s exactly what you need. And, that’s on top of all the other features this monitor boasts – including a plethora of ports like downstream and upstream USB 3.1, DisplayPort, HDMI, SD card reader and, of course, USB-C. This is among the best USB-C monitors for photo editing you’ll find, and the best part is you’re getting it for cheaper than all others.

The best USB-C monitors in 2021: top screens that can charge your laptop

The best USB-C monitors might prove to be an indispensable tool, whether you’re a Windows or MacBook user. USB-C is fast becoming the standard port of sorts for laptops, with many Ultrabooks now dropping other ports and sticking with this one type. This isn’t surprising as this latest type of connection is capable of carrying more power and data at faster speeds, which makes it more efficient than older connectors.

The best USB-C monitors for MacBook or Windows laptops, therefore, are able to transfer video, data, and power more efficiently over a single cable. That means that they’re not only able to display what’s on your laptop, but they’re also able to provide fast charging capabilities to your devices at the same time. As a result, they offer a great deal of convenience for busy creatives, especially those with USB-C only laptops.

Even if you’re not a content creator or graphic designer, you’ll still benefit from one of the best USB-C monitors. That’s especially since most of them still come with DisplayPort and HDMI ports, giving users a lot of versatility in terms of what kind and how many computers they can use it with. And, there's now a huge range of screens that offer this useful connection, from 4K displays to gaming monitors, so you’ll find an ideal one no matter your needs.

To help you find the best USB-C monitor for you, we’ve gathered the top and most highly rated ones in 2021. Take a look at our picks below if you’re ready to jump on the USB-C bandwagon. And, before you hit buy, do make sure to check out our included price comparison tool for the best prices available. You might also want to see our pick of the best 4K monitors or the best monitors for video editing and best monitors for MacBook Pro.

The best USB-C monitors available right now

01. LG 32UN880 UltraFine Display Ergo

The best all-rounder USB-C monitor

Specifications

USB-C: Yes, 1

Screen size: 31.5 inches

Aspect ratio: 16:9

Resolution: 3,840 x 2,160

Brightness: 350 cd/m2

Response time: 5ms

Viewing angle: 178/178

Contrast ratio: 1000:1

Color support: 95% DCI P3

Weight: 10.3 kg

Reasons to buy

+Excellent picture quality+More accessibly-priced

Reasons to avoid

-Not a lot of premium features

Next to all the other options on here, the LG 32UN880 UltraFine Display Ergo takes a more back-to-basic approach. That isn’t to say it is lacking in features. On the contrary, there’s a lot to love here. The ergonomic C-Clamp stand, for one, lets you pivot, extend, retract, swivel and tilt the monitor every which way without fuss, the way a robust desk monitor arm would. It also comes with HDR10, which offers a bit of improvement in picture quality whether you’re in gaming, productivity or creative mode. And, there’s also a plethora of ports on hand; a DisplayPort, one USB-C, two HDMI and two USB-A ports are more than enough for most users.

As far as the more premium features, however, don’t expect a whole lot. Instead, what you’re getting is a brilliant 4K monitor with 350 nits of brightness and 95% DCI P3 colour gamut for most users' bright and accurately vibrant viewing pleasure (not to mention, for beginner photographers editing needs). What we’re saying is that it might not be rich in features, but it delivers where it counts, which to most people is really all that’s important. Especially when it’s one that’s more affordably priced than all the other top contenders.

02. BenQ SW321C PhotoVue

The best USB-C monitor for creatives

Specifications

USB-C: Yes, 1

Screen size: 32-inch

Aspect ratio: 16:9

Resolution: 3,840 x 2,160

Brightness: 250 cd/m2

Response time: 5ms

Viewing angle: 178/178

Contrast ratio: 1,000:1

Color support: 99% AdobeRGB, 95% P3, 100% sRGB

Weight: 25.6kg

Reasons to buy

+Improved brightness and colour uniformity+USB-C connectivity+Hardware calibration with 16-bit LUT precision

Reasons to avoid

-Main connection bay is hard to reach-‘Paper Color Sync’ needs refining to be truly useful

If you’re looking for the best USB-C monitor overall for creative work, especially photo editing, this is the one. You get a lovely big 32-inch 4K display so you can really dive into the detail of an image, while the impressive colour gamut support (99% Adobe RGB and 95% DCI-P3) means you can get the look of your pictures (or videos) exactly how you want it. 

The USB-C connectivity means you can bring your laptop back from a photoshoot and plug in a single cable to immediately get working on a bigger canvas. Similarly, you can just as quickly unplug the one cable when you need to head out the door to go to a job. 

There's also a useful connection hub – you can use its USB 3 ports for external storage and other peripherals, but perhaps the most useful feature is the built-in SD card reader since MacBook Pros don’t include them these days. The accuracy and detail are desirable for everyone, but the whole setup here is smartly designed for photography.

03. Dell UltraSharp U2720Q

A well-priced 4K USB-C monitor with great image quality

Specifications

USB-C: Yes, 2

Screen size: 27 inches

Aspect ratio: 16:9

Resolution: 3840 x 2160

Brightness: 350 cd/m2

Response time: 5ms

Viewing angle: 178/178

Contrast ratio: 1,300:1

Color support: 99% sRGB color gamut, 99% Rec 709 color gamut, 95% DCI-P3 wide color gamut, Delta E

Weight: 9.6kg

Reasons to buy

+Sharp 4K resolution+Great colour quality+Good connections and power

Reasons to avoid

-Average brightness

This is the best 4K USB-C monitor you’ll find before having to make the leap into the world of seriously expensive specialist screens. It’s not just about the quality of the pixels here; this monitor is also extremely well-equipped all around. It's a rare display that can actually deliver 90W of power over USB-C, which is enough for any laptop running at full power on intense tasks, including a 16-inch MacBook Pro. There are also three USB Type-A ports for connecting accessories, and is has full ergonomic adjustments and rock-solid build quality, as you expect from Dell’s office products.

On the screen side, the 27-inch 3840x2160 display is extremely sharp – and with 95% DCI-P3 coverage, 99% sRGB and 99% REC 709 support, you know that you’re seeing things accurately. The 350 nits of brightness is pretty average, but offers great uniformity, and it’s HDR 400 rated. As a screen for both creative and office use, this is extremely hard to beat.

04. MSI Prestige PS341WU

The best ultra wide USB-C monitor for creatives

Specifications

USB-C: Yes, 1

Screen size: 34 inches

Aspect ratio: 21:9

Resolution: 5120 x 2160

Brightness: 450 nits

Response time: 8ms

Viewing angle: 178/178

Contrast ratio: 1200:1

Color support: 98% DCI-P3, 100% SRGB

Weight: 10.3kg

Reasons to buy

+Great colour support+Excellent resolution

Reasons to avoid

-Slightly plasticky build

The MSI PS341WU was made with creatives in mind, and that's evident from its feature list, which boasts things like 98% DCI-P3 and 100% sRGB colour coverage, a 5K display in an ultra-wide 21:9 aspect ratio and HDR 600 support – not to mention, a strong 450 nits of average brightness. It also offers full ergonomic adjustments, so it’s easy to make sure that you’re seeing the display clearly and working comfortably for long periods.

It’s also a USB-C monitor, of course, and features three regular USB 3.2 ports, so it acts as a useful connection hub. It’s the accurate, wide colours and high resolution that really draw us in, though. This is basically a 4K display with a bunch of extra working space, meaning you can view things in great detail and still have loads of room for tools.

05. BenQ EW3270U

A beautiful 4K USB-C monitor

Specifications

USB-C: Yes x 1

Screen size: 31.5 inches

Aspect ratio: 16:9

Resolution: 3840 x 2160

Brightness: 300 nits

Response time: 4ms

Viewing angle: 178/178

Contrast ratio: 3000:1

Color support: 95% DCl P3

Weight: 7.5kg

Reasons to buy

+Blue light options+Wide port variety

Reasons to avoid

-Lackluster speakers-Weird headphone jack placement

This 4K USB-C monitor is another great-value all-rounder, with a few extra features that might tempt you in its direction. The 32-inch panel offers a bit more screen real estate while delivering all the detail of 4K plus HDR support. However, AMD FreeSync means it’s also a great choice for gaming, while BenQ’s Opt-Clarity technology also makes it easy to tweak the display profile and make it more visible in whatever conditions you’re in, such as in dim lighting. Flicker-Free and Low Blue Light features also keep it comfortable for users over long periods.

It doesn't just check these boxes, though. There’s also 95% DCI-P3 colour support, so you’re also getting the colour reproduction you want from a creative screen. The only thing really missing here is USB hub support, but given the excellent price, maybe you can live with that. This is another great option if you're looking to get one of the best USB-C monitors. 

06. ASUS ProArt PA24AC

The best smaller, more affordable USB-C monitor for creative work

Specifications

USB-C: Yes, 1

Screen size: 24 inches

Resolution: 1920 x 1200

Aspect ratio: 16:10

Brightness: 300 cd/m2

Response time: 5ms

Viewing angle: 178/178

Contrast ratio: 1000:1

Color support: 100% sRGB

Weight: 6.5kg

Reasons to buy

+Excellent color accuracy+Small size, but pro quality

Reasons to avoid

-Not very high resolution-Not especially bright

This is a great smaller USB-C monitor with impeccable image quality. A lot of the competition starts at 27 inches, but this is made to bring pro-level picture quality to a home office or small desk. And, of course, if you’re going smaller, USB-C only makes sense, since it keeps everything even more minimalist.

The 1920 x 1200 screen may not be particularly high resolution, but it’s high enough for most people, and it's certainly fair for the price. We also really like that it’s 16:10, giving a bit more height for viewing photos and documents since they aren’t always ideal fits on 16:9 screen. Even more important is the 100% sRGB coverage, 14-bit internal LUT and special uniformity tech to make sure everything looks top quality. At 300 nits, it’s not massively bright, but it’s about average – and again, we’ll take that for this price, given the strong uniformity of the screen. Finally, a full set of ergonomic stand adjustments means it’s great for working in comfort. The ASUS ProArt PA24AC is ideal for the creative office on a budget.

07. BenQ DesignVue PD3220U

An outstanding USB-C monitor for professional creatives

Specifications

USB-C: Yes x 2

Screen size: 31.5 inches

Resolution: 3,840 x 2,160

Aspect ratio: 16:9

Brightness: 250 nits

Response time: 5ms

Viewing angle: 178/178

Contrast ratio: 1000:1

Color support: 100% Rec.709, 100% sRGB, 95% DCl P3

Weight: 10.7kg

Reasons to buy

+Gorgeous design+Lovely IPS panel

Reasons to avoid

-Only good color accuracy-Not cheap

This is a USB-C monitor made with creative pros in mind, and that’s obvious from the outset. The biggest sell is the big 32-inch 4K panel delivering stacks of detail and an overall image quality from the IPS panel that's absolutely top-notch. The HDR support is a nice bonus.

One of the key features here is that its USB-C connection is not just USB-C – it’s also Thunderbolt 3. This is part of what pushes it up the price scale, but if you need ultra-fast connectivity then it’s essential. It means you’re able to daisy chain multiple monitors from one connection, store full-quality high-res video files on external storage and work with the live, and even connect external GPUs. It's the ultimate docking monitor for elite needs. BenQ really knows how to put together a great screen for creatives, and this is one of the best.

08. Gigabyte M32Q

The best USB-C monitor for gaming

Specifications

USB-C: Yes, 1

Screen size: 31.5 inches

Aspect ratio: 16:9

Resolution: 2560 x 1440

Brightness: 350 cd/m2

Response time: 1ms

Viewing angle: 178/178

Contrast ratio: 1000:1

Color support: 94% DCI-P3, 120% sRGB

Weight: 10.2 kg

Reasons to buy

+Wide enough colour gamut+Lots of features for the price

Reasons to avoid

-Contrast ratio could be better

USB-C monitors aren’t just for creative professionals and masters of productivity. There are gaming options too, as the surprisingly affordable Gigabyte M32Q proves. With 94% DCI-P3 and 120% sRGB coverage, it doesn’t quite make it as a display for pro-level content creation. However, that’s more than good enough for most users and it’s certainly good enough for gaming, especially when combined with its VESA DisplayHDR 400 certification, 1ms GTG response time, 165Hz refresh rate, and AMD FreeSync support. 

There’s no doubt that gamers, especially those who play competitively or have a penchant for fast-paced titles, will love it. This is one terrific USB-C gaming monitor, and looks every bit the part, touting gaming-inspired aesthetics, a dashboard that displays your CPU usage, clock speed and cooling management, and small gaming-centric extras. It keeps its price competitive as well. Just keep in mind that this isn’t a 4K monitor, which means you’re not gaming in 4K – though unless you have an expensive high-end GPU like an RTX 3080, you couldn’t do so anyway so this 1440p is just the ticket for most gamers.

09. Lenovo Q27h-10

A smart-looking USB-C monitor for a minimalist workspace

Specifications

USB-C: Yes, 1

Screen size: 27 inches

Resolution: 2560x1440

Aspect ratio: 16:9

Brightness: 250 cd/m2

Response time: 4ms

Viewing angle: 178/178

Contrast ratio: 1000:1

Color support: 99% sRGB

Weight: 5.89 kg

Reasons to buy

+Very sleek design+USB hub

Reasons to avoid

-Limited ergonomic adjustment-Not the strongest colour support

This is one of the best cheaper USB-C monitors you’ll find, and we’re rather taken by its sharp design – especially compared to the chunky and more ‘practical’ looks you get from most of the monitors here. The 4mm-thick bezels and single metal arm make it look far more premium than its price, and it would look right at home in any design studio. This does come with a downside, though: you can only adjust the tilt, not the height or pivot. 

Despite the low price, Lenovo has still seen fit to include USB hub functionality alongside its vital USB-C connection, so it’s not a case of style over substance at all. Its price means it won’t lead the pack for image quality, but it's perfectly good for most uses. It offers 99% sRGB coverage and resolution of 2560x1440 keep everything really clear, even if it's not as sharp as 4K. It balances its features and its price really well, and is desirable too – we‘re fans.

10. Asus ProArt PA32UC

The best pro-level USB-C monitor for video editing

Specifications

USB-C:

Screen size: 32 inches

Resolution: 3840 x 2160

Aspect ratio: 16:9

Brightness: 400 cd/m2

Response time: 5ms

Viewing angle: 178/178

Contrast ratio: 1000:1

Color support: 100% sRGB, 99.5% Adobe RGB, 95% DCI-P3, and even 85% of Rec.2020

Weight:

Reasons to buy

+Feature-packed+Stunning image quality

Reasons to avoid

-Extremely expensive-Not for gamers

If you want a serious USB-C monitor for video editing, it doesn’t get much more serious than this. It offers 4K resolution (at the Ultra HD standard) and huge HDR – it can reach a peak brightness higher than most TVs, so it’s one of the best ways to work with HDR footage. It also offers colour coverage that includes 100% sRGB, 99.5% Adobe RGB and 95% DCI-P3 – not to mention, pro-grade calibration features and a hardware calibration tool in the box. Strong gamma tracking and consistency complete its credentials as a creative powerhouse. Like we said: serious.

As for connectivity, it's not just USB-C, but also Thunderbolt 3, which means you can daisy-chain it to other Thunderbolt 3 devices with colossal bandwidth between them. That includes monitors, or RAIDs with your uncompressed 4K, 6K or even 8K video on it, ready for you to work with live using your tools of choice. The Asus ProArt PA32UC comes with a high price tag, but if you need what it offers, it’s worth every penny.
