    Product Overview

    Complete the perfect gaming setup with this 27-inch MSI monitor. Whether you’re upgrading your current display or after a second screen, the WQHD resolution will show all the action in amazing detail. The lighting-fast 1-millisecond response time prevents any lag too, which means you’ll be able to pull off deadly combos at the perfect moment. And you won’t be able to blame your bad aim on your kit either, since the 165Hz refresh rate and Nvidia G-Sync tech work together to prevent any image tearing. Setting it up will be breeze too, as it’ll connect to your desktop via the HDMI or DisplayPort sockets.

    Please note, although this monitor will work with any setup, you’ll need an Nvidia GeForce GTX or RTX graphics card in order to enjoy the full benefit of the Nvidia G-Sync feature. Make sure to check your computer’s hardware specs before buying.

    I thought my previous monitor was good but was surprised at just how much better the colours are on this. The response time and FR are brilliant. Love it. Going to buy a second one soon for a double monitor setup!

    An impressive gaming monitor

    5/5
    If you're looking to upgrade to a gaming monitor with a high refresh rate and G-Sync technology, this is the monitor for you. I have been using this monitor for a month now and I can say so far it has been a vast improvement from my previous monitor. My last monitor was a 4K ASUS monitor with a 30Hz refresh rate, which was a decent monitor apart from when I would play any game. Having a 30Hz refresh rate and no G-Sync (or similar technology) affected how games looked and felt, however, I did not realise how much this affected the gameplay until I got this monitor. I noticed the improvements immediately. The smoothness that games play now is incredible and I would highly recommend this monitor if you are looking to upgrade to a higher refresh rate gaming monitor. Before buying this product, I read a lot of reviews and many of the negative ones brought up similar issues: The colour accuracy, and the monitor only being good for gaming. The colour accuracy is an easy fix, downloading and installing the latest firmware from MSI's website and using the following settings: Red: 92, Green: 90, Blue: 96, provides great colour accuracy (if these settings don't look quite right, it is easy to change them to whatever suits you best). I have found this monitor to be great for any task, I am currently reading and writing a lot using this monitor and I have found it perfectly comfortable to use.

    My first gaming monitor, its awesome!

    5/5
    I'm very pleased with the quality of this display, the brightness absolutely amazing! I got this monitor for for my first ever Gaming PC build, coupled with an RTX 3070ti after using an xbox one on various tvs since 2014. I was looking for a 165htz 1440 with variable refresh, and looking between this and the non-QD model. In the end I decided to pay the extra for the premium display quality as I want this set up to last me a long time and be usable for media consumption as well as gaming. I also do photography work and so the changeable colour modes are another very useful feature to me! It delivers far and above what I was hoping for, in colour, sharpness and ease of use! The brightness is fantastic and makes colour and details pop spectacularly. So far I've played Cyberpunk and Detroit Being Human and both games look stunning. The variable refresh with G-sync is also a fantastic feature of this monitor and makes the game play experience amazing. The only slight speed bump I had in setting up the display was my pc had defaulted to 60htz refresh rate when I first set it up but as soon as it changed that in windows the difference in responsiveness was immediate and this was not a fault of the screen but of me. Make sure you check the PC settings if the picture is not looking as good as you expect because once it is set up this monitor is beautiful. Watching films on this display is also a very nice experience there are changeable picture settings that you can adjust and save so you can set up the monitor for what ever situations you will be using it and then adjust between them on the fly with the joystick control on the rear. ??My only criticism are the power cable has an external power brick like an old laptop charger, I would have preferred this to be housed in the monitor itself just to make cable management easier and the cable stronger. And if you are being very picky the RGB back light strip is very low powered and does not do very much but that is superficial to the operation of it, aside from that I love this monitor. ?

    Brilliant monitor, amazing to game on and is perfect for any setup, although I received mine and had a dead pixel so in the process of sorting that now, other than that though it’s a great monitor
