I visit clients. What is the best adapter to use so that I will be able to plug my Surface Pro 2 into their large monitors?

• Plugable USB 3.0 to DisplayPort 4K UHD
• Plugable USB 3.0 to HDMI / DVI (DL-3500 chipset)
• Plugable UGA-2K-A USB 2.0 to VGA/DVI/HDMI
• Plugable USB 3.0 to VGA / DVI / HDMI (Chipset 3100)

I want to give myself the best possible chance of being able to walk into a customer and being able to use their monitors. I will not always know what types of monitors I will encounter when I arrive.

Can you give me some guidance?



Hi Rick,

Thank you for asking! I’d be happy to assist.

In terms of connectivity, Plugable USB 3.0 to VGA / DVI / HDMI (UGA-3000) is the most flexible USB graphics adapter we have. The adapter comes with a DVI-to-HDMI port adapter and a DVI-to-VGA port adapter. You can connect to any monitors that has either VGA, DVI or HDMI input.


If you needed to connect a monitor via DisplayPort, you could, by using the miniDP of the Surface Pro 2.
Please don’t forget to bring proper graphics cables with you. :slight_smile:

Hope the above information helps! Please let me know if you have any other questions.
