    Monitor with dual displayport inputs?

    Hey all

    I've been looking around at a couple different options for monitors, and I'm drawing a bit of a blank.

    With the devices I have on my desk setup it would be helpful if the monitor had dual displayport inputs for me to conveniently switch to. I'm looking at 27" 1440p IPS monitors for my use.

    I can only find those with Dual HDMI and single Displayport connections.

    Any help would be appreciated on recommendations if monitors exist. Ideally budget would be up to £500, but I'd also like to be aware of any that are above this. I've tried looking at display port switches, but since I'm planning on getting a new monitor anyway it would be good to have an AIO solution.

    Thanks!

    They might exist but I haven't seen one when browsing for monitors recently. Would a displayport to HDMI cable solve this for you? Unless you're doing crazy resolution/refresh/HDR then they'll work the same.

    my dell U2414 has multiple DP - not sure if that correlates to their current 27" range but might be worth a try

    Re: Monitor with dual displayport inputs?

    Hmm, this seems to correlate with my findings so far. It's been a long while since I last went monitor shopping so I just wanted to see what's out there.

    I could use displayport > HDMI, but just wanted to see if there was a way I could keep it clean and just use 'vanilla' DP cables.

    Thanks folks

    Re: Monitor with dual displayport inputs?

    2xHDMI, 1xDP seems to be what is generally found... I'd recommend using productchart (google it, can't post links yet) to help narrow down your search for what you want, and manually checking the ports on the few that remain. Maybe you'll strike gold
