What kind of monitors are compatible with my T450S Thinkpad DS?

By bobby501 ·

I'm looking to purchase monitors for my docking station that's in the mail. I'm just not sure what kind will be compatible. What specs should I be looking for in a monitor?

My laptop is a T450S Thinkpad. The DS I'm getting has 3 ports, 1 DVI and VGA ports. 5 ports in total but only 3 screens can be used at a time.

Honestly, any monitor will be great. It all depends on what you want. Do you want a gaming monitor? They have high refresh rates and usually start at 1080p and go up to 4K.

Or, do you want a standard monitor with a refresh rate of 60 to 75? You can find those in 1080p too, and they are usually cheaper.

I own two ThinkPads, both run Linux OS and I use any monitor that I have available. My T510 is connector to a display port monitor and my E585 connects to my home TV when I get bored.

It is all a matter of preference. Also, what display connectors does the dock have? You will have to keep those in mind when purchasing a monitor.
