MSI Optix MPG27CQ review: A gaming monitor with RGB lights that serve a purpose


The first monitor to use SteelSeries' GameSense tech has a responsive 144Hz 1440p panel and excellent image quality

144Hz refresh rate at 1440p ; Ideal for competitive and casual gamers ; Punchy colours

GameSense doesn’t support all games ; Too dim when 'Fastest' response time setting enabled

Despite the MSI representing the best use of RGB I’ve seen on a monitor, then, it’s still not something that would persuade me to choose it over its rivals.

MSI Optix MPG27CQ Gaming Monitor Review: Color Curves, Calibration Conundrums


In our coverage of the latest high dynamic range (HDR) monitors, we've talked a lot about extended color and its impact on both gaming and other kinds of entertainment. It's not enough to offer 3,840 x 2,160 resolution and HDR. You need a color gamut...

Vivid color and contrast ; Good gaming performance ; Backlight strobe option up to 144Hz ; Good build quality

No sRGB gamut option ; Calibration yields zero benefits ; Lighting software has limited support ; Brightness is fixed in Anti Motion Blur mode

The MSI MPG27CQ is a competent gaming monitor with excellent video processing and contrast, FreeSync and a 144Hz refresh rate. Its out-of-box color is good enough without calibration, but software support for the RGB lighting is limited.

With its high refresh rate and quick pixel response, the MSI Optix MPG27CQ is a good choice for high-performance gaming, but it lacks HDR and was only so-so in our video testing.

144Hz native refresh rate over either DisplayPort or HDMI connection. Support for AMD FreeSync. Good pixel response. Nifty RGB lighting.

Lacks support for HDR. Ho-hum video-playback performance.

Bottom Line: With its high refresh rate and quick pixel response, the MSI Optix MPG27CQ is a good choice for high-performance esports gaming, but it lacks HDR and was only so-so in our video testing.

Great curved monitor


"The colour range and sharp text on this monitor is great. I read a few reviews and saw that it does take a little setting up but I found plenty of guides online on how to set it up correctly. Love the little pop out arm on the side to hold my headset...
