I have an ENVY 20-030 [no port for an external monitor].
I am told that I can use the USB3 port, with a USB-to-VGA or HDMI or DVI connector.:
Which connector is best?
Does HP sell a siutable connector?

Allow me to welcome you to the HP forums!
I use a USB-to-VGA adapter to drive a third monitor for my desktop and find it works great! I can't use it for videos or gaming, because the USB 2.0 port doesn't provide enough bandwidth, but I have the other two monitors for that.
What you buy is up to you. If you use a USB 3.0 port, then you would have enough bandwidth to drive either HDMI or DVI -- and the choice then depends on how much you want to spend.

You sure are quick to reply !
The unit is at my office and I can't access it until tomorrow: the answer however is that it doesn't matter which connector I use - an "el cheapo" will do.
Thank you V.M.

.... the answer however is that it doesn't matter which connector ...
This is depend on port or ports on your monitor. You have to buy the one which can be connected.
