4k Monitor - USB-C or no USB-C?
for my MacBook Pro 13" 2017, I want to buy a monitor.
As 21:9 ultrawides aren't really available/affordable in real 4k (i.e. 2000p), I may just go for a "regular" 4k monitor.
I'm considering e.g. a LG 27UD58P and a LG 27UD88-W.
And I wonder, the 88 is significantly more expensive (almost 2x) but features USB-C.
What is the advantage of having a USB-C monitor vs. an HDMI monitor and a USB-C-> 4k@60Hz HDMI or displayport adapter? Is there any?
If I want a USB-C hub, I might as well get a separate one that supports charging, fast USB-A ports, SD-card reader, separate. I didn't find such a hub built-in to a monitor. Even the more expensive ones only have 2x USB-A - which isn't really enough.
Would appreciate your input.
