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:

    JD!!

    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!!!

  • Jordan K

    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,
      -J.D.

      Hi Jordan, I am glad to see that this worked for you. I am planning to daisy chain Dell U2417H UltraSharp 24. What box are you using?

  • Mike R

    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!
      -J.D.

    Hi buddy,
    ‘Which monitors support MST?’ There is not much information about it. Even on monitor-selling websites, the MST feature is often not written.

    I was thinking about what to do, and I came across this article.

    And you became my hero. 🙂 I thank you very, very much.

  • James

    Very useful list – I’ve been watching for a while while I wait for my company to proceed with a hardware refresh.

    Do you have details on the Dell U2419H ? This appears to be a minor refresh of the U2417H, with a thinner bezel. There’s also a U2419HC which includes USB-C connectivity and also lists MST compatibility.

    • Dear James,
      Great question!

      The U2417H is a great MST monitor option and the thin bezels are just icing on the cake. Fore setup, just make sure that you: (X) enable MST in the monitor settings and (X) use the DisplayPort ports. 🙂 I think these would be great monitors for you!

      Best regards,
      -J.D.

      PS The ONLY reports of MST issues are on MacBook Pro’s which only support mirroring with MST (not extended displays) on Mac OSX, it seems to solely be a software issue as booting in bootcamp (Windows) makes everything work fine. 🙁

    J D,

    At my work I use a laptop with a single 24 inch monitor. I have been looking for a way hook up two monitors.
    While searching for a solution I came across Display Port v1.2 MST. I looked great, but was having trouble locating monitors that would work in my small cubicle.
    Thank you for your fantastic post. I now know more about daisy chaining display port and which make and model to request from logistics.

    • Dear Carl,
      Thank you for your very nice comment. I am glad my post helped and I am super excited that you are going to have two monitors now!

      Have a GREAT week and thank you again for taking the time to comment. 🙂

      Best wishes,
      -J.D.

  • JB

    Thanks for maintaining this list. As someone who runs 6 monitors off 1 graphics card, MST monitors are a must!

    • Wow, that is AWESOME JB! So cool to hear about 6 monitors and only needing 1 video card. Excellent!

      Have a great week and thank you for commenting. 🙂

      Best regards,
      -J.D.

  • Victor

    Thanks for your work mate.
