Best monitors to use with the Surface Go 3: Samsung, LG, and more
The Surface Go 3 is Microsoft’s latest affordable tablet, and it’s an important part of Microsoft’s Surface family. While it may not be as exciting as the Surface Pro 8 or Laptop Studio, it’s important to have a solid entry-level offering. The Surface Go 3 offers an all-around solid experience at an affordable price, and now it’s noticeably more powerful than its predecessor. However, it’s relatively small, so if you want a second screen — or simply a bigger one — we’ve rounded up some of the best monitors to use with the Surface Go 3.
One thing that’s important to remember with this tablet is it doesn’t have a typical display output, so your options are somewhat limited. You can either find a USB Type-C monitor or use a Surface Dock to use more traditional outputs like HDMI. Almost all the monitors in our roundup have USB Type-C inputs, so you don’t need to go through the hassle of buying docks or adapters.
If you need more space to multi-task, this LG UltraWide monitor gives you a Quad HD 21:9 display so you can snap as many apps as you want with room to breathe. Plus, it supports HDR10 and up to a 100Hz refresh rate if you have another PC to take advantage of it.
If you're doing color sensitive work and you need the most color accurate display, the ASUS ProArt PA279CV is one of the best options you can get. It has a Delta E < 2 so colors will look true to life. It's a 4K IPS display too, so everything will look fantastic on it.
If you're worried that a second monitor will drain the battery on your Surface Go 3, this one has a battery built right in, so it has its own power source that lasts up to four hours. It's a larger 15.6 inch display if you prefer the additional real estate, plus built-in speakers.
All of these are great options for the Surface Go 3 since most of them will work with a USB Type-C cable right out of the box. We also tried to focus on more affordable monitors for the most part, since the Surface Go 3 is also an affordable device. Despite that, these still cover a wide range of use cases and price points, so you can find something that truly suits your needs.
If you haven’t yet, you can pre-order the Surface Go 3 using the links below to choose your preferred configuration. If you’re planning to use multiple screens for multi-tasking, we’d definitely recommend getting a model with 8GB of RAM, as the experience won’t be fantastic with just 4GB. If you need an adapter for HDMI, you can check out this premium USB-C to HDMI adapter from Anker. We also have a list of the best Windows tablets if you’d like to explore alternatives.
