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.

MSI Optix MPG27CQ

 

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...
