Anyone know of an LCD monitor with USB port(s)?

by proof71991 / March 13, 2007 12:51 PM PDT

so I was wondering if anyone knew of any LCD monitors for a computer that has a USB port(s) actually built into the monitor.
I could have swore i've seen some with USB ports in them but maybe i'm just dreaming. am I?
if the do exist does anyone know where I can find them

Look at the Dell 24", 27" or 30" wide screen LCDs for a few examples.

I have the same monitor but for some reason, the USB ports don't work. Any reason why?

connect a USB cable from the monitor to one of the USB ports on the tower? That would be my guess.

Patch Cable Question for Dell Monitor
by bilros / May 10, 2007 4:30 AM PDT

What does the cable look like and which slot does it go into on the monitor? I have a similar monitor at work but they didn't provide me with a cable.

I too have a Dell Windows 7 and found a Samsung SyncMaster 205bw monitor on sale that has two USB ports. Also picked up an LG Flatron for my MAC with two USB ports for my G4 Power MAC. $25 at the local thrift shop works great too.

Why have USB on monitors? Video feed?
by charles-e-on-CNET / July 10, 2012 4:37 PM PDT
In reply to: LCD with usb ports

Why do some monitors have USB connections or hubs ... do these only work like independent USB hubs, or can you also feed video to such a monitor via a USB cable. I know USB couldn't feed video before, but is that happening now with 3.0 appearing? Or what are the uses of these USB ports/hubs on monitors? Is this only for connecting USB sticks ... and only for displaying static photos/docs from the PC?
