Thanks to a recent law passed by the European Parliament, USB-C is becoming more common on new monitors. A USB-C monitor acts as a USB hub and provides additional ports for connecting various USB devices. Additionally, the USB-C port serves as a video-input alternative to HDMI or DisplayPort, and some USB-C monitors can charge a connected device while in use.
USB-C monitors can be confusing and often come at a higher price compared to monitors without the interface. However, they offer a wide range of connectivity options.
