These monitors will let you chain multiple displays together from your MS Surface tablet, laptop, or PC*. For me this is particularly nice as my Dell XPS 13 (w/Infinity Display) does not have dock capability but it does have mini-DisplayPort for a sweet daisy chain setup. These monitors will of course work with standard large DisplayPort cables or mini-DisplayPort connectors/ports and you just need to choose the appropriate cable.

*NOTE: as of Feb 2019, Macs and MacBooks do not support daisy chaining via DisplayPort 1.2 and MST. If your late model OSX device has Thunderbolt 3 then you may want to use a ThunderBolt dock. I recommend the CalDigit TS3 Plus.

All of the monitors on this list have been verified to be daisy-chainable when configured properly. Generally, this is a fairly easy process requiring at most a few adjustments in their OSD (on-screen displays) to enable the daisy chaining. Here is a sample from a ViewSonic monitor manual:

    My office is having an issue with a box and graphics card and looks like we might go to an DisplayPort 1.2 MST setup. BUT I didn’t know what monitors were available. I went to google. My results gave me your page as my top result.

    My first thought was…I KNOW THAT GUY!!

    Thanks for this post, it helped me out a ton!!!

    Just a heads up, I utilized your table of MST capable monitors to pick two new monitors for my new MacBook Pro. I LOVE THIS CONFIGURATION. Thank you.

    • Hi Jordan,
      Thank you for your nice comment. I am very glad that you are using multi-monitors with your MacBook Pro 🙂 That makes for a sweet setup!

      Enjoy and have a great day!

      Best regards,

    My company used your displayport 1.2 monitor list to buy (10) of the ViewSonic 24″ monitors that you recommended. The results have been phenomenal and everyone in the office LOVES our new monitors. Thank you for your effort putting this mst monitor list together!

    • Dear Mike,
      Thank you for your nice comment. I am very glad my monitor list was useful! I hope you and your co-workers continue enjoying the nice monitors 🙂

      Have a GREAT day!
