The 10 Best USB Type-C To HDMI Adapters
January 06, 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.
