Connect Dell XPS 15 to two monitors using (1) HDMI-HDMI and (2) USB Type-C to DP/HDMI cables


Feb 10, 2016
Hi all!

Want to connect my Dell XPS 15 to two Dell monitors.

The Dell XPS 15 has: (1) USB Type-C port and (2) HDMI port
(It also has two USB 3.0 ports, just to add)

The two Dell monitors both have: (1) DP port, (2) mini-DP and (3) HDMI port

My question is, can I connect my Dell XPS 15 to one monitor using a USB Type-C to HDMI cable [or even a USB Type-C to DP cable], and then the second monitor using a HDMI-HDMI cable, and have two independent displays (i.e. NOT the same image on both screens)?

Here are the cables I'm thinking of buying, but ONLY if my idea is going to work of course:


(2) USB Type-C to HDMI:

(3)USB Type-C to DP:

As I only have one USB Type-C port on my laptop, I would only buy one of the (2) or (3) listed above. Any thoughts on which one is best?

This is Dell monitor , of which I have two, the Dell 24 UltraSharp Monitor U2414H:

Thanks in advance!
