Description

The MSI Optix MAG274QRF is a 27-inch HDR gaming monitor for gamers who want to play smoothly in high resolution. With a 165Hz refresh rate and 1ms response time, you can play even the most demanding games without screen tearing. Thanks to the QHD resolution, you can experience games two times sharper than in Full HD. Combined with the DisplayHDR 400 support, it'll give you vibrant colors and razor-sharp images. In addition, the Quantum Dot technology improves the color representation even more. This way, you'll get even more realistic images. Do you have an NVIDIA video card, such as the RTX 3080? Forget about screen tearing with the G-Synch technology, which ensures that your video card will synchronize with the fps amount of your monitor.

    • Very clear and detailed image
    • Very nice colors

    Very good 1440P monitor. I use this in combination with the new RTX 3080? I7 10700K and 32 GB Ram memory. A beast of a screen and of a PC :-). And the service at Coolblue was again above all my expectations :-).

    Just buy it, you won't regret it.

    • Very fast refresh rate
    • Super sharp image quality (2K)
    • Different game modes via the monitor menu
    • HDR
    • Adjustable in every way
    • Looking obliquely at the image, black looks more like gray

    It's big enough to see all the details, but also small enough to put in tight spots. In addition, the quality of the image is super neat, just like the quality of the monitor itself. Feels sturdy and sits well on the leg. RGB is nice but you don't see shit from it. Furthermore, the 165 Hz frame rate is incredibly fast. This ensures smooth gameplay and just that extra advantage you need in fps games. The only drawback I see is that if you look at the image diagonally, the black looks more like gray. But if you're good at it, you won't have any problems. Price is quite high, but then you have something sturdy and very beautiful in your hands.

    8,4/10
    Impressive Quantum Dot Panel
    • Adaptive sync indicates premium freesync in AMD settings.
    • Beautiful image 1440p resembles 4k.
    • 165MHz. Refresh rate and very fast repost times.
    • One of the highest range/coverage color gamut available.
    • Sturdy base & No nonsense look/ adjustable: height/tilt/swivel.
    • OSD has no Gamma value/RGB settings
    • The colors are saturated here and there.
    • A Premium IPS screen but pricey
    • White screen is not 100% uniform.

    It is indeed a Freesync monitor, says Freesync Premium in my AMD settings.
    The image in games or, for example, a nature film at 1440p is really impressive, it just looks like 4k. The color reproduction and contrast are top notch there. in particular the water with reflections/light is very realistic and flowing.
    I come from a curved VA panel to this flat screen. And my eyes really have to get used to it. I register a kind of inverted curve in the image.
    I was afraid of the black values but I think they are fine. Only in the pitch dark did I see my black desktop a bit lighter.
    I don't see any IPS Glow or blackbleeding. Only in the dark at the bottom left some light in black but no blue glow either.
    This Monitor has an enormous color gamut range and very fast response times.
    Is it just Hossana then?
    No: The color spectrum is not really regulated. I don't see anything in the OSD in terms of RGB. You can't set the gamma value either. And therefore you have very saturated colors (SDR) eg the color of your desktop background.
    So calibration is not easy. Or you are at peace with how it is out of the box.

    A sharp monitor for a competitive price
    • nice picture
    • Adaptive sync
    • Colorful
    • Smooth installation
    • Monitor software
    • 75° degree adjustability

    Firstly, I immediately noticed that the color palette of this monitor is enormously extensive and that the out of the box settings are set as good as perfect, which saves a lot of time. I only recommend lowering the brightness as it can be quite bright.
    After the very smooth installation of the monitor I played a game of cod wz and it was so nice to play in Quad HD res with that very smooth 165HZ refresh rate. If you are looking for a good game monitor for mainly FPS games like me, I can only recommend this one. The monitor also serves as an excellent Netlfix/Youtube monitor. Sharp image quality combined with the aforementioned color palette ensures a pleasant experience.
    The only minor drawback I personally notice is that you can only turn it 75° degrees to the right or left 90° degrees would have been perfect.
    Finally, I am also very satisfied with the software that MSI provides with this monitor (see settings screen), I definitely recommend turning on the adaptive sync & tuning brightness.

    This monitor is great!

    Coolblue, hats off to the service:

    Old AOC broke, Coolblue refunded the purchase price due to no longer being able to order parts. With that I got another monitor of 34", but that's just a bit too much for my PC and desk. It has now also been returned, and I received this monitor today. Apart from the expected malfunction at PostNL (happens more often , if you choose same day delivery when purchasing), which Coolblue itself has nothing to do with, I think: very good service delivered.

    Thanks!
