1 - The monitor itself is amazing. I recently upgraded to the MAG271CQR for the 1440p resolution from the MAG271C 1080p version. I loved that monitor too. Great for gaming, clear picture, high refresh rate, love the curve. Great usage experience. That is, until this monitor showed up in the mail today.
2 - I set everything up and booted my computer and noticed there was a solitary dead pixel in the corner of the screen. No big deal right? I've been through this before. Just file for a replacement, use the monitor in the meantime, problem solved. Well, Amazon support directed me to MSI to try and file the replacement under my warranty, but after MSI heard I only had one dead pixel, they said the warranty only covered replacement if I had atleast five. What the frick? I know it's just one little pixel, but I received my item TODAY but the warranty doesn't cover me? If I shattered the screen myself, then would your warranty cover me? Goodness.
I told this to my Amazon support agent and he was honestly as surprised as I was that MSI basically told me to deal with it. Then Amazon came in clutch and offered me a 25% refund to cover the repair of the monitor locally rather than go through the whole replacement/shipping ordeal, and if that doesn't work, they said to let them know. Now that's how customer service should go, MSI.
Anyways, chances are if you order this monitor it probably won't have any dead pixels and you are gonna love gaming on it for many years. But if something does go wrong with it, don't expect any love from MSI.
I will say this though, the black levels, colors and contrast are very high-quality for a gaming LCD. It almost makes it worth it just for that alone. I can't say much about the curve, it doesn't add anything to the experience for me.
The major disappointment for me, is the advertised 1ms response time, seems to be completely bogus. There is significant motion blur on fast moving scenes and objects. Using the ufo blur test, it was immediately noticable, and even in game I can see high contrast areas blur quite a bit when moving the camera around. I'd imagine this is a deal breaker for some gamers, mostly the ones looking to buy high refresh rate monitors. Because what's the point of high fps if the image is going to be blurry anyway? I suppose it's not choppy at least...
So it's hard for me to recommend this monitor for gaming. It's got great picture quality, and high refresh rate, but it's clearly not 1ms response time. (overdrive makes it look worse so no settings can help with the response time either)
I was hoping to replace my old 1080p with this, but I'm not so sure I will now. My 1080p has perfect 1ms response time, hardly any blur at all unless an object is moving hyper speed. (I originally bought that monitor for Nvidia 3d vision, suffice to say, this MSI display has no chance of supporting 3d vision with this low response time)
It's not the worse response time I've ever seen. For games capped at 60 hz, and are more cinematic, it's acceptable. But for first person games, with higher frame rates, it's easy to see the difference between real 1ms and whatever this panel is providing.
BEWARE OF POWER-SAVING MODE SETTINGS IN WINDOWS!!! This is what caused the monitor to flicker in the first place. Once I turned it off, it was all smooth sailing! Very happy with my purchase.
