Beautiful Display for gaming

Pros: -Image is super crisp and bright
-Multiple display modes that can be swapped on the fly with OSD
-"joystick" style OSD controls as opposed to the face buttons of old which are hard to operate in low-light environments
-RGB lights can be adjusted in software as well as turned off directly through OSD
-Stand footprint while wide is fairly small due to the narrow arms out to both sides
-VESA compatible
-Comes with all needed display cables out of the box
-Lights can be used for notification displays as well as other useful purposes.
-Overclockable to 149Hz (through NVidia control panel)
-Perfect "sweet spot" for fast refresh and high-fidelity graphics
-Height/tilt/rotation adjustable stand out of the box (NOTE: you have to tilt the monitor back to get it to rotate to portrait mode)

Cons: These are mostly nitpicks, I've so far purchased 3 of these so I clearly like them:
-Takes a little bit of work to get the VESA mount to work at first due to oddly shaped opening for monitor stand
-MSI website doesn't have software for the RGB control (must download from SteelSeries' website)
-Monitor legs for the RGB version are much longer for no real identifiable reason than the Red-LED only counterpart (though this might be due to the height-adjustable stand which the MAG27CQ does not have)
-Lacks G-Sync, but I understand that the price would almost double for it to have that.

Other Thoughts: I absolutely love this monitor, there is now one of them in each of the 3 gaming setups in my house, and they are getting well-used. Previously I was using a 4K monitor for gaming on a GTX 1080 and while the individual frames generally looked really good, the overall quality of the experience was subpar due to the limitations on frame rate of a 4K display, even at 60FPS which I could easily get to, it felt sluggish compared to previous higher refresh rate displays which I had used before, this was my upgrade to solve this problem by meeting frame rate and resolution somewhere in the middle. I strongly recommend this and it's cheaper brother the MAG27CQ which only removes the RGB lighting in favor of Red-Only and the height-adjustable stand to anyone who has a machine that can reasonably run 1440p at 144Hz+ and is looking for an upgrade, and I double down on that recommendation if you're running a red-side graphics card.

Best monitor for the money

Pros: -Very nice contrast

-27"

-1440p @ 144 Hz

-Curved

-Freesync

-Gamesense, although it's a gimmick at best, and it only works in a handful of games. I wouldn't let this influence your decision to buy at all. You should buy it for all of the other reasons it is great.

Cons: -It's hard to find in stock because it's such a good deal, when I bought mine it was the last one in stock at the time.

-Mine shipped with a couple of dead pixels up in the top left corner, but it doesn't bother me enough to warrant an RMA.
I'm not the only one who seems to be complaining about this though, I just go lucky because they happened to be in the corner. I absolutely would RMA if they were close to the center of the screen.

Other Thoughts: -I'm not sure about color accuracy, or how good the calibration is out of the box. I'm not really the type of person to make a fuss about that sort of stuff though.

Everything you need (minus 4k) for under $500

Pros: - colors look great
- 2k, 144hz, 1ms response time
- curved
- gaming osd lets you create different game profiles, and create hotkeys for them. I use about 3 different ones for different games and browsing.
- leds at the bottom of the monitor look cool
- you can easily swivel, move up and down or tilt the monitor.

Cons: - blacks can be too black sometimes, mostly in PUBG
- gaming osd deletes all gaming profiles randomly leaving me having to create all of them again.
- when computer wakes up from sleep monitor will come on for a second then go blank and say no signal. This is corrected by pushing the power button on and off, or using shift control windows key + B.
- stand is pretty big, so it might not be ideal for a small desk

Other Thoughts: I don't know why some people are being so picky, this monitor really gives you a good bang for your buck. Also there is another gaming app (i forget what its called) that lets you change the color bars at the bottom of the monitor to coincide with whats going on in a game that looks helpful and easy to use, but haven't used it yet.

Great fell and amazing curve!

Pros: The curve fits very nicely for a single monitor set up.
The refresh rate is amazing while playing games like Destiny 2 and Fortnite.
The joystick control is very innovative and easy to use.
The lighting on the bottom gives a little flair to your set up.

Cons: The lighting is controlled by using a USB which is understandable, but just an extra cable to route is a little bit of an eye sore.

Other Thoughts: I would recommend this monitor in a heart beat!

Not impressed for the $

Pros: You get what you pay for, it is hard not to like the top of the like.
-2k
-Curved
-1ms Response Time
-144Hz
-Verticle, Forward and Back Tilt, and Side to Side adjusting
-Excellent Coloring compared to my HP Pavilion 27c monitor it was going to replace

Cons: -First one had four stuck pixels, one was close to the center of the screen.
-Second one had several dead pixels right out of the box
-Waiting on my third but expectations are low

Other Thoughts: This is a $500 monitor, 3 attempts at a brand new non defective monitor is unacceptable. It was not refurbished, not open box, and was not damaged in shipping. Oddly enough it was fantastically packaged actually in both cases. Due to stock issues I have been forced to miss out of the sale of a $500 monitor for $400 and will have to pay more for the same thing now or alternative. I am extremely disappointed and like their motherboards, I will never buy a monitor from them again or recommend them to my customers.

Top Quality and screaming Performance.

Pros: + Amazing build quality. Both Monitor and especially the Stand are very sturdy.
+ 2,560 x 1,440 VA panel @144Hz combined with 1MS response time truly shines in FPS & strategy games. Huge departure from my old 75HZ monitor.
+ Highly customizable OSD and easy to navigate with Joystick in the right hand side of the monitor. (I am kinda addicted to this joystick)
+ Strip of LED in the front looks beautiful and can be turned off with OSD. There are also 23 LEDs on the back size of monitor which reflects on the back wall very well. Entire setup looks amazing in a dark room and does not bother me while gaming.
+ Gamesense software works when you plug the monitor into PC via supplied USB which enables the setup of LEDS. For example in Rainbow Six Siege, I can setup Front LED Strips to display Ammo, HP, Performance etc.
+ MSI included every single type of cable one could possibly need all the way from USB 3.0 , Audio , HDMI and DP. I did not had a chance to measure the lengths but they all were sufficient from my needs.
+ I have combined this monitor with Titan XP and works very well. One of the best upgrade I have made this year and this monitor was worth every penny.

MSI Optix MPG27CQ truly stands up to Steel Series reputation for its performance and build quality.

Cons: - None thus Far.

Other Thoughts: + Make sure you have Large desk space as Stand can take quite a bit of space. Stand measures 612mm X 379mm and provides 100 x 100mm VESA stand compatibility.
+ One side note, stand can be completely detached from back of monitor with just flip of a button.
