I feel it is always best to go direct rather than through and adapter. My preference would be using the USB-C port.
But you do a premium for that.
At my office when we conect laptops to an external monitor we use a docking station. The docking station plugs into the USB-C on the laptop and then we plug in mouse, keyboard, and two monitors and it works very well.
This way you just plug in a single cord to your laptop and your ready to go. I am not certain with the Air but for my Dell Laptop it also charges the laptop

Hey there, Peachry77!
You have a series of great questions. Honestly, I think bobberuchi did a fantastic job throwing his opinion in, and I'm inclined to agree on much of it. For example, a USB-C monitor with no adapters needed would be convenient!
I just wanted to stop by and see if you still needed help selecting a monitor. If you do, please clarify both the size you would want, as well as if it needs to be VESA compatible, and I'll be glad to throw a suggestion or two your way.
