Product Expert monitors

The MSI Optix MAG271CQR is a 27-inch WQHD monitor for fanatic gamers. Smoothly play fast shooters and racing games thanks to the 144Hz refresh rate and 1ms response time. This widescreen monitor has a resolution of 2560x1440 pixels, which means the monitor clearly displays games and movies. Do you have an AMD video card? If so, FreeSync makes sure you don't experience tearing and stuttering. The curved screen truly wraps itself around you so you're in the center of the action. The LED light at the back of the monitor can easily be adjusted via the MSI app. Tilt and adjust the height of the screen to ensure a nice sitting posture. You can use the MSI remote display to adjust the image settings from your smartphone.

Note: For QHD gaming, you need a powerful video card, such as an NVIDIA GeForce RTX GPU or AMD Radeon RX 5000 series GPU, or an Xbox One X or S.
