I just got the Surface Pro 7 and I'm loving the power of USB 3.1 gen 2 (the USB-C port on the side).

I have everything connected via a single USB-C dock including two more monitors.

My main workstation is in the lower level.

Never really understood why images get turned. On my PC it showed normal.  Ok, upon click it comes up right.

 

Anyway, the above is where I mostly live.

RedneckDude, I can see it is Samsung screens you have there, but would it be possible for you to add which models they are, or links if you have any ?

Cheers !

You're most welcome! I gave up looking for a better quality monitor when I got my BenQ's, there is absolutely nothing better.

Enjoy!

Go with the Benqs if you can afford it, great monitors.

 

That said, I don't know what graphics card you run, but with my Radeon card, I am able to run the Samsungs at most any resolution I want.  Higher than native.  I run at 2560x1440, even though the monitor isn't supposed to go higher than 1920.
