Some computer manufacturers have been trying to kill USB-A and push consumers towards USB-C, but so far, this scheme has not been successful. Don’t get me wrong, USB-C is wonderful — the reversible connector is far superior to the previous USB design — but there are just too many USB-A devices in the world to have it disappear completely. While he death of USB-A is a certainty, it is still many years away.
If you have one of those newfangled computers that only come with USB-C, you can always buy a hub, dongle, or adapter. For instance, today, NewerTech launches two new USB-C video adapters. One converts USB-C to HDMI and the other to DisplayPort. These USB-C dongles aren’t just great for connecting to computer monitors, but televisions too.
“Stream sports, watch videos, play games, or browse the internet on up to a 4K HDMI or display, TV, or projector with the NewerTech USB-C to HDMI and USB-C to DisplayPort Adapters. Both are backwards compatible with earlier versions of HDMI and DisplayPort so that you can connect your USB-C-equipped computer or device to any DisplayPort and HDMI-equipped display anywhere at its maximum resolution,” says NewerTech.
The OWC subsidiary further explains, “With both the NewerTech USB-C to HDMI and USB-C to DisplayPort Adapters, you can add a second display to extend your desktop view space and increase your productivity. Kick back with family and friends and watch videos and movies on a big screen. See more page content when browsing the web.
