178 DEGREES OF WIDE VIEWING ANGLE

By having a large viewing angle, MSI gaming monitors have more leeway for placing your monitor in your setup without giving up the optimal viewing experience. Colors and details will stay sharp at more angles compared to other monitors with less viewing angles.

ANTI-FLICKER TECHNOLOGY

Generic monitor displays normally have a flicker-rate of about 200-times per second, which is unnoticeable to the naked eye, but can cause fatigue over time. MSI Anti-Flicker technology provides a very comfortable viewing experience by reducing the amount of flicker.

Decent Gamming Monitor 7/30/2020 5:50:29 AM

Pros: - Fast respond time 1ms
- Decent refresh rate 165hz (must use dp port)
- Great design with RGB light at the back

Cons: - not Gsync compatible

Overall Review: It is overall a great monitor. Works perfectly well with my PC.
If it got RGB on the MSI logo at the front that will be awesome!!!

TIP: To get 165hz, you need to use DP port! HDMI only support 144hz!

Great purchase! 7/24/2020 11:17:58 AM

Pros: -2k monitor with a high refresh rate for gaming (165 Hz).
-Curve of the monitor is subtle, so not too drastic of a change from flat screen users.
-Color range and brightness is great for a VA panel.

Cons: -RGB on back of the monitor is not addressable or if it is, there is no easy way to do it. But this is not a concern for me.

Overall Review: I highly recommend this for gamers trying to step up their game from the 60 Hz refresh rates. Picture is alot more fluid and crisp, and there is less input lag in game.

Supererb monitor. 7/3/2020 11:13:11 PM

Pros: great price.
looks great on and off.
stick controller in the back.

Cons: its not a true hdr monitor, but at this price it's not expected.

Overall Review: What a nice monitor for the price, the sweet spot of gaming too.
I have this monitor running with a xfx rx 5700 xt thicc iii ultra and an i5 9600k and my games run butter smooth in this monitor.
The controller stick in the back to control settings works like a charm unlike my Alienware gsync 240hz monitor in my other set up, which I have a hard time using its controller settings.

The monitor arrived in great condition without any dead, stuck pixels or problems of any kind, I would recommend it to any one looking for the sweet spot of 1440p and 165hz.

Incredible monitor!!! 5/14/2020 4:09:43 PM

Pros: - The curve makes it way easier to have a multiple monitor set up
- Colors are incredible
- Plenty of presets and an easy to reach button to adjust them
- Adjustable height

Cons: Only con that i can think of is that there should be some type of ability to "daisy chain" the USBs. I'm using a multiple monitor set up and I can only really reach one USB cable

Overall Review: Before I bought this monitor I had two monitors and decided I wanted a third. This monitor was so great that I decided to break the bank and buy two more.
