Avoid if you like punchy colours and like to tweak colour settings. These MSI monitors with VA panel don't even have colour adjust eg 0-100. You have to stick with the basic profiles eg FPS, RTS etc
Same at Amazon if you prefer their customer service..

Hmm... I was think about buying this. What’s a VA panel?



VA panel are in between TN and IPS. VA panel offer colour accuracy, vibrant colours, superior contrast and better black level. However these MSI monitor with VA panel aren't that great. You have to sit dead on straight as VA panel don't offer great viewing angles compared to IPS or even the high end TN panel found in AOC AGON.

Thanks for the info. Being curved would this make things worse or better?

Adding onto the other person.

VA is the middle ground between TN and IPS. The downside though is VA have a really bad habbit of "smearing" especially when you're viewing something dark on a bright background or other way around. This can be really noticable when playing fast paced games.

Also you can get an effect called black crush, this is where details in dark areas can be lost because everything just looks black and you lose fine detail.

I feel like the term 'Gaming Monitor' should have a minimum spec that includes 144Hz refresh...
I wouldn't recommend this as a gaming monitor, however if you don't spend lots of time with your eyes on the monitor then it could suit you, the price is definitely great, also MSI makes good quality products.

This is correct. VA has horrible blur in dark colours. I had a MSI mpg27cq and returned it after 3 days the smearing was unbearable. Went back to TN which is so much more clearer especially for games (dell s2719dgf)
Whats the input lag

I had a MAG27CQ (the MPG's higher spec iirc?) and it was the best monitor I've ever had, unfortunately it had a couple of dead pixels so I had to return it, then they had no stock and I couldn't find another one for a similar price. It is the one that got away

This monitor does quite have a dull display compared to other monitors since it has a VA panel. Definitely go for an IPS display if you want a pleasant viewing experience from all angles. Even though VA and TN panels can both be seen as good screens, when you compare them with IPS side by side you will see a massive difference as I did when I visited curry’s pc world and saw this monitor in person.

Curved at that size is just silly. Good price though for 75mhz.

Would rather brand new undamaged. You never know if it was dropped from height.
I used to have the 144Hz version of this monitor until I gave it to my brother.

Ignore the negative Nancys on here, I thought the panel quality was fantastic! The colours were great, and I didn't notice the smearing.

Those looking for a significant curve will be disappointed though as it's quite a subtle feature.

Having now used good IPS, VA and TN monitors, I think people significantly underrate VA panels.

IPS: Best for colour accurate and professional work. Best for content consumption.

VA: Best all rounder for people that will use their monitor for gaming and content consumption

TN: Best for enthusiast and hardcore gamers who will notice and take advantage of low pixel response times
Loads of rubbish on this thread. This is an excellent monitor for the money. I'd go for a VA panel over IPS any day of the week. Better contrast and refresh rate. VA is ideal for gaming if you want a balance of quality and refresh rate.

Also gaming doesn't have to be 144hz, this has a great balance of specs for the price.

It's got HDMI so you can definitely connect it up and use it for gaming. But there's no speakers in this monitor remember.
Anyone know what the freesync range is on this (eg 48-75hz)?

VA panels have better viewing angles than TN panels and AOC AGON TN aren't better, VA panels have the worst response time and always have some form of ghosting, especially in darker scenes
Am I correct in saying that by buying this monitor I would not have to pay tv licence? I do not have/watch any TVs in the house nor I watch any online TV prgrammes.
This says G-Sync on Amazon but isn't G-Sync? Confusing, definitely a lower spec model
Great deal.Just bought this for my son for Christmas, going to hook it up to his laptop as he only play Roblox currently!
