The MSI G271 144Hz E-Sports Gaming Monitor
MSI G271 144Hz IPS E-Sports Gaming Monitor
MSI’s rapid expansion in the gaming monitor has provided us with competitive value products which include great gaming performance and design. The new MSI G241 and G271 models embody those qualities, along with the fact they both are using IPS panels instead of the usual VA types the brand has been keen on using.
As we’ve mentioned before, 144Hz 1080p IPS monitors have been missing over the course of the gaming display industry’s growth. We’ve only begun to see and enjoy these models, which often combine excellent responsiveness and color fidelity into a very affordable offering. TN variants are still faster while VA versions have better contrast ratios, but IPS’ advantage in viewing angles and color accuracy consistently increases its demand in the market.

Both models will sport the new FreeSync premium branding which indicates that LFC is supported together the specs mentioned. Comparable models like the AOC 24G2 and 27G2 use the same module, so you can expect excellent image quality results and responsiveness from these two.
Other specifications mentioned is an ambitious 95% DCI-P3 color coverage for the MSI G241 and 92% DCI-P3 for the MSI G271. Both will also ship with proprietary Anti Motion Blur implementations which use backlight strobing to further boost the pixel response time.
