Nice but some small iszues 4/26/2020 1:42:56 PM

Pros: Screen looks beautiful. The refresh rate and the options for changing displays to different settings such as ray tracing, etc. Could ask for a better monitor

Cons: Only issues I'm having is that if I'm in a game and unlock and achievement or if I turn up the volume via keyboard, the screen will go black for a second then pop back up with lower settings. But then go black one more time and come back with full picture quality. Maybe it's something on my end buy I have yet to figure it out.

Overall Review: Overall It was worth the buy besides the couple small issues that i am currently dealing with.

Great display 2/2/2020 11:53:44 AM

Pros: Easy configuration
Beautiful picture
Sturdy

Cons: Had to go to the official site to grab the manual for one specific question, manual in box was one sheet of how to put screws in stand.

Overall Review: This display has been excellent so far. I’ve used it quite a bit and also found myself moving my consoles over to it rather than use my 4K tv just because of how easy on the eyes it has been.

Setup was easy and the configuration menu is robust but not overwhelming. Happy with this purchase and can’t wait to add a second one.

i love this monitor 1/24/2020 8:55:44 PM

Pros: great picture quality. 240hz curved, hdr its everything as advertised.

Cons: requires the usb A to usb B chord and the display port or hdmi cable. not a big deal
and comes with all 3 cables.

Overall Review: it took me a few hours to figure out what was wrong I thought I had received a damaged product. I upgraded from a 27 inch curved msi 144hz monitor. but when I got this monitor I set up both monitors side by side at the same time running extended display. and right off the bat I noticed the new 240hz monitors screen was darker a lot darker. the settings through the button on the back were all the same between both monitors so I called msi and talked to their tech department. the guy I spoke to was not really any help but the next day I was able to figure out that I needed to use the usb A to usb B chord as well as the display port cable and there is an app to download. the gaming OSD app. do not look for that app download by selecting this exact monitor on msi website
I had to dig through a few options of monitors to find the app. it works on all msi monitors as far as I know. but the app gives you full control over all the settings in the monitor a whole lot more than ive ever seen on any tv or monitor. I was able to get the screen brightness adjusted through the app you can not adjust brightness through the buttons on the back. and you can even program the app to auto change to different setting depending on which game you load up. over all I am
absolutely blown away with this monitor. I love the 240hz I love the HDR I use nvidia gpu so the freesync is useless for me. I would have got other 27 inch 240hz monitors but after my experience with acer on my laptop I wont go with another acer product and Samsung with gsync has to many reviews saying you have to turn gsync off so I waited and got this. not a simple plug and play but once set up. I personally think this 1080 screen has better picture than my 65 inch lg 4k tv

Defective at arrival! 1/24/2020 11:19:23 AM

Pros: The monitor looks amazing with really vibrant colors for a 240Hz Monitor.

Cons: HDR support is not widely supported & not really perfected with many games like Destiny 2 which makes it look very dark at really low Nits & not much you can do to up the brightness & windows 10 also have trouble with HDR content as you would have to turn it off if surfing on the internet & watching non HDR content, the colors would look washed out & with the wrong color profile.

Overall Review: I was excited to receive my monitor but at opening i noticed that my monitor had one dead pixel & to go through the hustle of putting the monitor on it’s original package & return it & prob wait another whole to weeks was really just annoying & dissatisfaction.
