Hi All,

At work we have a Surface Pro 7 that we want to connect to a second display.

I know I need a USB-C to Display-port/HDMI adapter to run the monitor but is there any difference between getting the $65 adapter from Microsoft

Getting a $27 USB-C to display-port cable from Amazon

Or getting one from Lindy

Would rather not get one just to find out it doesn't work as it should.

Any help or advice would be appreciated
