The new USB Type-C connector has become de rigueur among new technology products, showing up on everything from smartphones to notebooks. The new port offers a number of advantages over the older micro USB slot, including directionless plugin, increased data rates, and the ability to carry power to charge external devices.

Another feature of the new connector is the ability to carry audio and video signals along with data, allowing one cable to provide both input to a display and power out to a connected notebook or mobile device. Accordingly, display maker Eizo has jumped on the bandwagon according to a press release issued on Tuesday, offering the 27-inch FlexScan EV2780 monitor with USB Type-C connector.

The EV2780 is a large bezel-less display with a 1mm-thick frame and a fully flat surface and comes in black and white with matching cables. Picture-by-picture functionality and a number of ergonomic and energy-saving enhancements are also on board. The LED-backlit IPS panel offers up 178-degree viewing angles and WQHD resolution (2560 by 1440 pixels).

The monitor offers three USB Type-C ports. One of the connectors can serve as an input, as a connection to power external devices, or both depending on the device. The other two USBM Type-C connectors are available in an integrated USB hub. The EV2780 also offers DisplayPort and HDMI ports for additional input support.

Eizo’s Auto EcoView sensor automatically adjusts the screen’s brightness to match ambient lighting as well as apply circadian-dimming capabilities. If a user has more than one EV2780 in a multi-monitor setup, then all of them can be adjusted in a single step. A Screen InStyle server app is available that allows administrators to adjust monitors across an enterprise.

The EV2780 includes dual 1W speakers and a headphone jack for audio support. The ergonomic stand offers 155mm of height adjustment, up to 40 degrees of tilt, and 344-degree swivel. The monitor can also be pivoted a full 90 degrees for portrait-mode support.

Eizo has not yet announced availability for the EV2780, which will vary by country. Contact Eizo for pricing and availability in your region. The monitors will come with a five-year warranty and six-month bright pixel guarantee to provide buyers with some confidence.

The new USB Type-C connection continues to make waves in the market, with more and more machines adding the new port and in some cases making it the exclusive connectivity option. As more peripherals switch over to USB Type-C, that becomes a net benefit, because the new specification offers some real benefits over legacy connections.

Storage is one area where USB Type-C can offer some advantages, and we're seeing more storage options being released that leverage the new specification. Western Digital (WD) has just announced another USB Type-C storage option that focuses on high capacity, as 9to5Mac reports.

Satechi’s Power Meter might help save your USB Type-C from short circuiting

USB Type-C has a lot going for it. It's a universal standard and it replaces bulky, outmoded plugs that hogged a disproportionate amount of space in phones and computers. But it has an obvious downside -- a minefield of compatibility problems. Just because two devices have USB Type-C does not mean they will play nicely together. It is tempting to use a Google Pixel USB Type-C plug to charge a MacBook Pro, but doing so could short circuit the laptop's motherboard.

That is where the Power Meter, a new voltage monitor from Satechi, comes in.

If you invested in a new laptop this year, chances are you have a few USB Type-C ports at your disposal. They might be a little lonely, however, since many peripherals have yet to adopt the new standard. USB Type-C boasts a number of improvements over the traditional USB 3.0 -- including a smaller form factor, faster transfer speeds, and a more future-proof overall design -- but it’s not quite as ubiquitous as USB 3.0.

That’s where Trendnet's latest hubs come in. On Friday, the adapter manufacturer unveiled a new lineup of USB Type-C adapters, hubs, and converters to make your life easier by bridging the gap between your new devices and your old ones.
