Choosing Your Luna Display Unit Type for Windows

Choosing Your Luna Display Unit Type for Windows

Luna for Windows is coming and will be available in USB-C and HDMI. If you already own a USB-C Luna, you will be able to use it with your PC once we begin shipping Windows units. At this time, Mini DisplayPort (mDP) will not be available for use with PCs. 

Luna Display for Windows supports USB-C or HDMI

Not all USB-C ports are the same!

Not all USB-C ports support displays, which Luna Display requires. For USB-C, your port must support Thunderbolt or DisplayPort. See the visual guide below to determine if you have proper support.

Most PCs have markings next to the USB-C ports that indicate what is supported. You'll need to confirm your part has either a DisplayPort (P symbol) or a Thunderbolt (a lightning symbol). If the port is unmarked you'll need to check your PC manufacturer's documentation to determine what is supported.

My PC has both a USB-C and an HDMI port: which Luna should I buy?

The only difference between the two units is the port type. Many PCs have USB-C ports, and many have HDMI ports. If both ports can be used for an external display, you could purchase whichever one fits in with your workflow best.

Can I use an adapter?

We do not recommend using Luna Display with any kind of adapter. Many of the adapters we have tested do not implement USB-C properly. To guarantee reliable performance, Luna Display must be plugged directly into your PC. → Learn More

What about custom PC builds? Does Luna need to be plugged into the graphics card?

In general, yes. the HDMI or USB-C Luna should be plugged directly into one of the ports on your graphics card. If you do have additional USB-C ports outside of the graphics card, they usually do not support displays.
