Mac laptops and desktops have gradually removed ports like USB-A, HDMI, and DisplayPort in favor of USB-C ports with Thunderbolt 3. One of the downsides is that adapters are commonly needed to connect HDMI or DisplayPort monitors, but on the other hand, this move brings the powerful simplicity of Thunderbolt to your devices. BenQ monitors have support for Thunderbolt 3 and DisplayPort alt mode over USB-C, allowing you to connect your monitor directly to your Mac device, with no adapters needed. Additionally, BenQ monitors for Mac devices have two Thunderbolt 3 ports to take advantage of daisy chain technology. With Thunderbolt, you can easily have superfast storage devices, audio capture devices, and even multiple monitors connected in daisy chain while only using one Thunderbolt 3 or USB-C port on your computer.
Another benefit of using USB-C connectivity instead of more traditional HDMI or DisplayPort is the USB Power Delivery protocol. It allows USB-C devices to provide up to 100 watts of power through one cable. BenQ’s Mac-focused monitors incorporate power delivery functionality to make sure your Mac laptop is charged and powered without taking up additional ports. Keeping a cable clutter-free workspace has never been easier.
To cover your diverse connectivity needs, BenQ monitors for Mac users go beyond Thunderbolt to encompass HDMI, DisplayPort, and several USB connectors. That allows you to boost your work efficiency and extend the usability of your monitor with quite extensive connectivity.
