The upstart connector that can do it all, USB Type C is commonly found on the newest, most ultra-portable devices, and is great for pumping video to an external monitor over HDMI. It provides double the bandwidth of SuperSpeed Type A, and can operate even faster if it uses the most recent Thunderbolt protocol.

Editor's Notes

January 07, 2019:

We've finally reached a point in the lifespan of USB type C that it's extensively supported, and its accompanying accessories and peripherals are somewhat standardized and increasingly reliable. But that's not to say all adapters are created equal; far from it, in fact. Uni and Plugable both make very simple, very dependable products, which generally don't cost much; although we should note Plugable's very interesting, standalone DisplayLink module, which can keep the thinnest 2-in-1s from getting unnaturally hot, while still driving multiple, external, 4K displays. That one is actually pretty pricey, but extremely effective given the right use case. Choetech is a brand you may not have heard of, but as far as affordable products go, they're hard to beat; especially useful is their USB-C pass-through model, which will let you mirror your display without giving up your last type C port. We like Sabrent's docking station quite a bit, as it makes it quite easy to access large-format displays and non-travel-friendly keyboards, mice, and other peripherals, with only a single plug. Like many of their products, the CalDigit is particularly reliable, and offers dual video output, which isn't especially common. And if you're okay with a 30 hertz signal, the ColorfulDay is a good choice, as it's quite simple, and doesn't cost a whole lot.
