Why DisplayPort?

The inclusion of DisplayPort over other video outputs on the TS3 Lite, TS3, and TS3 Plus is due to its versatility. DisplayPort allows users to connect to virtually any monitor they need. DisplayPort to HDMI, DVI or VGA cables are widely available. * Active adapter / dongle is required to convert from DisplayPort to HDMI, DVI and VGA.
