So, what’s up guys? Jonathan here. And this might be the perfect Macbook setup. Specifically, I’m looking at the H277HU from Acer which is a 27 inch IPS display with a trick up its sleeve. First off, it is really, really pretty. The base, which is made out of metal, and not plastic, has this gold finish,.
Which looks killer paired with a white back. And there’s something strangely satisfying with metal versus plastic. It feels premium and is cool to the touch. You combine that with the bezels, or rather, lack thereof, and that makes this one of the best looking monitors I’ve ever seen,.
And a great starting point for a minimal, but great looking, setup. On the back, you will see a couple of USB3 ports, display port, and HDMI, but where the magic happens, is this guy right here: a USBC port. Normally the idea of a 12 inch Macbook hooked up to a monitor would sound like a nightmare.
There would be cables and dongles everywhere, but this monitor fixes that. It’s essentially a giant hub that allows you to dock the Macbook, transfer data, but what seals the deal, is that it charges the Macbook, and all through a single USBC cable. Keep in mind this is done through.
The monitor’s power supply. So that’s going to mean a couple of things. One: you’re not going to need the Macbook charger, and two: you now have two USB3 ports at your disposal. Personally, I love the implementation of a dock set up, but it’s even better when you’re connecting and disconnecting with a single cable. Now, one slightly annoying thing is because.
There are different kinds of USBC cables, not every one will work with this monitor. The ones that come with the Macbook and most phones are USB2 and those will not work. So what you’re going to need is a fully compatible USB 3.1 USBC cable, which fortunately is included. But the problem is, to the naked eye,.
There really isn’t an easy way to tell the cables apart. So, for this instance I have a wireless keyboard and mouse going through a single USB receiver. That is a preference because I like these models, but if you do want to go blue tooth, that’s going to keep that port open. Another example of how this could be useful is with external storage.
