What adapters I need to buy to connect T490 to 2 HP Compaq LA2405WG monitors?

2020-10-18, 2:31 AM

I'm using Lenovo ThinkPad T490.  I want to connect it to two HP Compaq LA2405WG monitors which has DVI-D, VGA, and DisplayPort.  What type of adapters do I need to buy in order to connect the 2 monitors?

 

Thanks.

https://www.amazon.com/Plugable-DisplayPort-Thunderbolt-Compatible-Chromebooks/dp/B087V7BDYW/ref=sr_1_4?dchild=1&keywords=usb+c+to+displayport+pluggable&qid=1603123359&sr=8-4

 

OR a different brand. Plugable makes reliable products without overpaying IMO.

 

Other should be be your choice to USB A.

 

Displayport will get you 4K 60Hz if you monitors are capable of that. For USB A, that wont be achievable.

 

 

OR you can buy a dock.

If you only  want to connect the two  monitors and don't want/need a dock, than look for a MST hub  like this one here and connect it to the thunderbolt compatible USB-C port.
