We spent 27 hours on research, videography, and editing, to review the top options for this wiki. The immense bandwidth of USB-C makes it a perfect match for today's high-end displays. Whether using the 10-Gbps, Gen-2 standard or the blazing-fast, Thunderbolt 3 protocol, some of today's most advanced monitors are outfitted with this useful connector, enabling resolutions and refresh rates exceeding HDMI, while turning the monitors themselves into power delivery-capable docking stations.

Editor's Notes

November 02, 2018: Very important to note whether your computer uses DisplayPort over USB-C Gen 1 or Gen 2, or if it's Thunderbolt-3 capable. The biggest of these require the more advanced TB3 standard, but we'll see more such-enabled laptops and other products emerging soon, as Intel has apparently dropping licensing on the product for the time being. The Samsung may have the best colors until we see OLED monitors, and it's also one of the few to have such a high native refresh — 100Hz at that resolution is pretty nuts, and would take some serious hardware to game at. The ZenScreen is a refresh of a year-old product, and man, is it cool. Between those, the Brilliance, and the 38-inch LG, you can't go wrong.
