MSI Optix MAG272CQR Gaming Monitor Review
Peter Donnell / 4 weeks ago
We love a great graphics card, the latest PC games, and much more. However, to really get the most out of all of them, you’ll want a quality gaming monitor. There’s certainly a lot of monitors out there to choose from, but MSI thinks they’ve got one of the best gaming monitors for us today. The MSI Optix series certainly ticks all the right boxes for the PC enthusiast too. It features a 1500R curved 27-inch panel, which should be more than enough for most PC gamers. Plus, with a 1440p resolution, it’ll look crisp, and with a blazing fast 165 Hz refresh rate, it’ll be silky smooth too.

Extra icing on the cake includes a snappy 1ms response time, HDR support, RGB lighting, gaming OSD, and a fantastic stand with lots of built-in ergonomics adjustments. The list goes on! However, a good resolution, a fast panel, a great size, that’s the most important stuff and it’s right on the money for them all. So, let’s get it out of the box!
