Awesome monitors

I bought 2, they are perfect, I have 3 suggestions to buyers (probably obvious to many of you). Firstly I'd recommend downloading the MSI Gaming OSD software (I couldn't configure mine to run at 165Hz with out it). Secondly when I launched games, the screen turned orange (high saturation), after hours of digging, I found that windows 10 was going into Night Vision mode (don't know why), but you'll need to go into the control panel and disable this. Thirdly the monitor does come with an HDMI cable, but it's a little on the short side, Id recoment buying a longer DisplayPort cable or a longer HDMI cable. I've only had the monitors a couple of day, but they really are fantastic, best purchase I've made in years (and such an awesome spec/price)

Bang for your buck, few more expensive monitors, 165Hz is excellent, GTA5 on my system is a little laggy, turned down to 144Hz and is fantastic, no doubts that this monitor can deliver 165Hz with no issues.

Great for the price, my budget was around £200, this came in at £220 once £11 shipping charge was added, which was to be expected.

You won't be disappointed, came extremely well packaged, easy to put the stand on, and came with a USB type C lead which I don't have use for, also came with an HDMI lead to connect to my new 5700XT Red Devil.

Great monitor

This monitor has made my gaming experience so much better. I love how smooth the gameplay is since I play a lot of competitive csgo it’s very important to have the fast 168hz and 1ms respond time. I love the design as well it suits the rest of my set up really well.

Kurt harris 2020-03-31

The monitor has fantastic colours and allowing me to be able to change the monitor through software instead of using the buttons is a game changer. Setting up the 165Hz was easy and without any changes I have been able to jump straight into gaming. I chos

This is a great monitor, easy to setup and has changed my gaming experience with the size and colours.
