Used the monitor for about 1 year then it broke

Pros: Nice monitor till it broke on me

Cons: After about 1 year the colors of my games started to turn purple and blue. It only happens after playing a gaming for about 20 mins. Very disappointed that it broke on me. Now i have a 250 dollar monitor that can't even play games. Thanks a lot Optix

Other Thoughts: I would advise potential buyers to not even waste your money on it. If it has the potential of breaking on you. I looked up the problem online and the same thing has been happening to a lot of people out there.

Great Monitor while 144hz worked.

Pros: Beautiful monitor, 144hz looks absolutely amazing.

Cons: 144hz mode stopped working after about 2 months of having this. I initially thought it was bad cables so I bought a new dvi and display port cable, but it did not work. Then I thought it was my bad gaming card so I saved up for a few months and bought a geforce gtx 1080 8g gaming x, sadly that did not fix the problem either.

Other Thoughts: Good monitor but I would be skeptical on how long it will last.

Great monitor

Pros: Work really well and the syle is nice

Cons: When you are putting the stand with the monitor just look out not to loose the screw in the stand. There is a small gap and it can be pretty difficult to take the screw back.

Refresh rate range is terrible

Pros: FYI, I bought this when it first came out.

-Colors look fine for most part
-144Hz, smooth FPS if you hit the right frames
-Curved screen sucks you in to the experience more
-Ergonomics are attractive

Cons: Cons-

-Refresh rate range is only 90Hz - 144Hz, so FPS below 90 will always result in screen tearing combined with slight stuttering, making it hard on your eyes when you lock a game at 60 FPS (or anything under 90 FPS). I couldn't find any resources at the time that stated the refresh rate range, so you can tell MSI deliberately kept this information from the consumer on purpose. This particular spec is a deal breaker for me and I will be selling it off and purchasing another 144Hz monitor in the future.
-Can't mount
-Blacks are relatively poor
-1080p, so yes, you can see the pixels at a close range

Other Thoughts: I would not recommend to anyone. Too many cons to make it worth it, unless you can get it a very good sale.

If you have any further questions regarding this product or have any suggestions for improvement for us, please do not hesitate to contact us directly at usreview@msi.com and we will be more than happy to assist you. With Freesync enabled, the range available is only 90-144Hz. However, we have heard people using Custom Resolution Utility to extend that range to 30-144Hz (there is normally slight flickering when first applying this range, but it usually goes away after a minute or so)!

Great product. Would recommend for mid-range monitor budget.

Pros: -Tilt & curving display.
-Really simple and quick sync.
-Sturdy mount.
-Low pricing for the features on the item.

Cons: -Cannot adjust height.

Other Thoughts: - Only comes with DisplayPort cable. You will have to buy DVI/HDMI extension if you don't have spare ones at home.
- Parcel came after just 3 business days with standard ground shipping.

Good while it lasted

Pros: Very nice while it worked

Cons: After only few months of moderate use, monitor doesn't turn on anymore,
Tried different PC's, different outlets, different video cables and different power cables.
Plugged in my old monitor and it worked first try so I know it isn't my system.

Other Thoughts: Registered my product on the MSI website, and hit the request support, all I get is a page error....
