I have the XPS13 DE and uses the cheap Color-3D CAC-1504 USB-C to HDMI 2.0 adapter. It works perfectly with my older 1680x1050 Dell monitor (via a HDMI to DVI adapter). The adapter should be capable of 4K@60Hz, but haven't tried it though.
BTW. I am actually able to drive two external monitors
1. Connected via USB-C <-> Display Port cable to 2560x1440@60 monitor.
2. Connected via HDMI <-> HDMI cable to 1920x1080@60 monitor.
I have to connect and enable HDMI monitor first, then the other one.
@wrobell The 9350 doesn't have a HDMI port - are you talking about a different model? Or is that from one of the docks?
I have had success with a USB-C to VGA adapter, which runs my 1920x1200 monitor.
This is using a CableCreation adaptor from Amazon (CableCreation Gold USB 3.1 Type C (USB-C) to VGA Adapter for Apple The Macbook, Chromebook Pixel and More, Black)
I have not had success with a USB-C to DVI adaptor from Camac (Amazon - Camac The New MacBook USB 3.1 Type-C to DVI Adapter Cable Converter High Quality Ultra-thin USB 3.1 Type C male Connector to DVI female for Apple New 12 inch MacBook Laptop - White).
The monitor is detected correctly, but no display...
Using Ubuntu 16.04.
With the XPS 15 9550, I've been able to connect my Dell U2415 (1920x1200) monitor using the built-in HDMI port, and also using the BUTEFO SuperSpeed USB-C to DisplayPort 4K adapter.
This is on Fedora 23 with kernel 4.4.6 - appears to work reasonably well though I haven't used it heavily yet.
Thanks for all the replies so far. I bite the bullet and ordered the 9350 (and the dell usb-c to hdmi cable to make sure I have something to connect to a monitor from word-go). I'll pick up a multi adapter at some point and let you guys know how it goes.
Well the Dell USB-C to HDMI adapter costs $49 and supports resolutions up to 1080p (is that really true!?).
The Color-3D CAC-1504 costs $29 and supports resolutions up to 4k@60Hz.
I chose the latter one and it works well for me.
Hi Sputnik Team,
can anybody confirm that the dell da 200 usb-c adapter works with xps 13 DE with ubuntu 14.04?
I need the usb-c to vga output. Could you please test and confirm with ubuntu 14.04?
@TOMVEST Yes, I probably should have just waited to get that one (although its actually more expensive over in Europe so there wasn't much in it). The Dell adapter is actually billed as USB-C To HDMI 2.0, although it then also says it is limited to 1080p in the actual blurb for the item. If it is actually outputting HDMI 2.0 then I should be able to get 4k@60 4:4:4 on my lovely Samsung 4K TV/Monitor (though that isn't my normal second monitor for the laptop so it will just be a test!).
And in fact I see someone in a forum reporting that they were able to get exactly that - http://forum.notebookreview.com/threads/xps-15-9550-hdmi-2-0.786509/ - I'll confirm that when I get the laptop and adapter.
