  1. Jackson Zenisek

    Amazing monitorI love the monitor. With my RTX 3070 and 1440p, it makes gaming so much more enjoyable. The better refresh rate, the better your performance will be. I have alot more workspace with 1440p than I did with my 1080p 60hz monitor. Also the color and the display itself is just amazing, and that’s what I like most about my monitor. I’m also a big fan of MSI products as I have a laptop from them as well. Overall, I’m very much satisfied with this product.

    MY SCREENNNNNNNNNNNNI want to be cry when I open my package. I’m really upset and I do not know what happen with my screen. I need a answer right now.

    Before you buyThis is a great product, I originally purchased this monitor for my Xbox series S because of the native 1440p at 120 FPS. And it works amazing for that the only issue is the VRR/Freesync when you have variable refresh rate enabled for the monitor there is huge dark area ghosting. This is when the monitor will light up dark areas via flashes. But all you need to do to keep that from happening is not use freesync. If that’s a deal breaker for you then don’t purchase this product. But for all of your gaming needs on next generation consoles this is a must have

    VA panel / misleadingThe color on this is great. Shipping had no damages, no dead pixels. For gaming? You can tell there is a big ghosting problem and that is due to the monitor being VA although nothing in the description refers to it being that. I assumed that because it was described as a gaming monitor and 1ms that it would be IPS, as that’s the standard. VA isn’t really meant to be for gaming and fast movement which is weird that they would make this for fast response even though the refresh rate has pixel dragging. Lesson learned from the experience, don’t do what I did. Unless specified in the title, or not added in the product info, assume any monitor is a VA or TN, not IPS.

    Monitor has pretty bad ghosting and smudging on black and dark areasThe screen its self was nice (res, refresh rate) and it was completely playable when it came to playing games or watching videos. But one thing that i also never saw mentioned in the reviews i was reading, was that whenever you read text on a black background or you play a game with a dark area in it the monitor has pretty terrible ghosting issues which makes reading text while scrolling very annoying and playing games with dark areas very distracting. Everything else about it was fine, but the ghosting problem was enough to make me get a different monitor.

  6. Jonathan

    Very good monitor. Quick reviewI got this monitor for my desk setup as I’m a software engineer and like screen space. I also play some pc games on my downtime. It works great for both. 2k looks very good and has great refresh rate. Don’t need more than 165hz when running 2k. One thing I like is that it looks very elegant. Can blend in well at a office or a gaming setup. When I bought this monitor I was worried about getting broken pixels because of other reviews talking about quality control. This would have been a big problem for me as I am looking at this screen many hours a day while working. When the monitor arrived it was the first thing I checked. 0 broken pixels. No issues. Overall I think it’s worth it.

    Very good monitor for the price rangeGot this monitor for my brand new i7-12700K/RTX 3070 setup. It’s very good, has crisp colors and very high contrast, as well as quite a bit of settings you can mess around with to get the display to your liking. It’s also very bright and despite the name saying it’s full HD it’s 1440p and it also has GSync/FreeSync support.It has a little backlight bleed on several spots on the screen when it’s not displaying anything, but surprisingly when the screen is showing a very dark image they’re not nearly as noticeable as they seem, it also has a little bit of ghosting at higher framerates.Overall, with the specs it has it’s probably one of the best monitors you can get for the price unless you decide to go past the $400 price range.

    Looks Great If They Can Fix Quality Control Issues2 of 2 ordered monitors had dead pixel(s) – one dead on monitor #1 and two dead on its replacement. I think MSI may have some quality control issues with this particular model. Unfortunately for them, this was my first time trying their monitors as I love some of their other components’ build quality, but alas, I won’t be buying any more MSI monitors anytime soon.

  9. Rodrigo López

    Satisfacción por calidad-precio Quedé completamente satisfecho con la compra, el monitor llegó en condiciones casi perfectas, ya que tiene un par de píxeles muertos en una esquina, los cuales no se pueden notar a simple vista y por lo que he leído, es un desperfecto más común de lo que a todos nos gustaría. Mantengo la calificación de 5 estrellas porque lo compré en uno de sus precios más bajos históricos en Amazon, con envío internacional gratis incluido, obteniendo un monitor QHD a un precio por el que obtendría uno FHD en las tiendas de mi país, y cabe destacar que no hay ninguna que venda este modelo. En cuanto al desempeño del monitor, destacaría que su mayor pro es la calidad de los colores, y su mayor contra el ghosting, ya que en el TestUFO sí fue evidente, finalmente como mención honorífica me sorprendí de que a pesar de ser un monitor curvo no noté fugas luz en los bordes.

  10. Bruno

    Great Monitor but…Great monitor for gaming, very good color, motion is not perfect but good lacks a little bit brightness in the dark areas which makes visibility a bit difficult in fast action games, on the other side if you increase the brightness too much, the colors and the contrast become bad.
