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.

First curved monitor 6/5/2020 4:06:21 PM

Pros: Liked that this curved monitor was able to b adjusted far more unlike a previous flat monitor of similar features (144hz 1440 p Freesync) . I think the curve is pretty neat just needed to get used to it in a way. RGB stuff is neat but I’m still figuring out how to get it to work. The little red nub for the monitor toggling is great to go through screen settings . Looks pretty great.

Cons: Unfortunately I had some sort of defect where the screen against a grey background it appeared as if there was pressure from the back of the monitors insides were pushing against the screen so it had some weird discolorations that could hardly be noticed and really didn’t bother me but I submitted a ticket to MSI asking if this was normal of curved monitors and they told me to send it in after showing them a pic of it.

Overall Review: Once I get it back and I’m able to play with it more I’m sure I’ll enjoy it a lot more. I feel as though the colors are pretty good I’m no technical expert I think I noticed some ghosting with my 144hz refresh rate something I didn’t notice with my older flat TN panel of similar specs. Not sure if it’s cus it’s a VA again I’m not an expert . I just watch reviews and sometimes buy on those recommendations. Just sucks that as my first MSI monitor and first curved screen I had to send it to RMA and been stuck on my cruddy 10 year old Asus 60hz Va 1080 p 22 inch screen seeing as I sold my flat screen TN panel to a co worker to help pay for this. I was considering getting a second curved monitor from MSI to spoil myself but now I’m a little hesitant.

Good monitor but some flaws. 6/3/2020 11:05:09 AM

Pros: Monitor looks great, seems to be high quality, the RGB is really nice, Really liked that "gamer" look. Good price for a 2K 144Hz when I purchased.

Cons: 2nd RGB light went out only like a month after having it. Not really worth the pain of returning or sending back but still a bummer.

Overall Review: Monitor works great, stinks that one light went out on it. It is very noticable too, maybe if it was the one on the left or right it wouldnt be as bad. I still think I would consider an MSI monitor in the future, just not this one, I wanted to get a 2nd one but I'll probably find something else. I don't like dealing with returns so I'll probably just end up disabling the RGB.

Great monitor. Absolutely no regrets. 5/28/2020 12:33:56 PM

Pros: OSD setup is great
Windows App to manage settings is a game changer.
G-Sync works on my 2070 Super with FreeSync enabled.

Overall Review: I did a lot of research before purchasing this monitor and the reviews covered everything so there were no surprises. The OSD setup is great and the Windows App (no OSX app sadly) is something I’m not sure I could go without after having. I found a few profiles that have great colors and no issues with them while playing games or doing my normal day to day work.

Beautiful Monitor 5/16/2020 9:11:32 PM

Overall Review: An immersive experience out of the box. No dead pixels or similar issues. Make sure you're discerning with Mystic Light usage so there aren't driver conflicts with your specific combination of hardware.

Less than impressed 5/11/2020 6:54:44 PM

Pros: good customization for picture quality. Fairly simple to operate with some youtube videos. user friendly.

Cons: I have been gaming on this monitor for 2.5 days, everything was going great and then BLACK SCREEN. Manufacturer says i have to send it in for a warranty exchange. No reason after not even 3 days this should happen. Im on console not PC, which was a little annoying since you cant benefit from all the features this has to offer. I would have to go back and forth from my laptop to console just to adjust settings and download steel series and game ODS.

Overall Review: its cool and i liked it while it lasted but i am very upset this thing took a dump after 3 days. not worth the money and not very good for console.
