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.
