    This looks like a nice 27" monitor until you get to the 1080p part, at that point you look for a different model or brand of PC gaming monitor. Because imho 27" gaming screens for a PC is when 2160x1440p is the perfect resolution.

    1920x1080 at 27" just isn't good enough these days. 2560x1440 would have been much better and there is no need at all for a screen that small to be curved.

    Yeah, FullHD just isn't good enough @ that size IMHO - and those inputs!? HDMI 1.4 & DP 1.2... bit old-school tbh.

    A lot of flash with little substance. Hope their next offering is more competitive.

    I think you've all missed the point. Have you guys even looked at the pricing?

    A year ago a 23.5" 120Hz 1080p VA monitor cost £275. And that was non-curved with no adaptive sync.

    This thing isn't supposed to have the absolute best specs. It's meant to be good value for money.

    Re: MSI enters gaming monitor market with the Optix G27C

    Couldn't care less about the pricing because of the screen res. A 27" screen is just too big for 1920x1080. I have a five year old 27.5" screen at 1920x1200 and the screen size is too big for that res. Anything more than 26" should be at least 2560x1440 in my opinion.

    I got myself a korean Croossover 27" AH-IPS, with 4ms response, 60hz (o.c. possibility to 100hz) with the 1440p for 300€ + 70€ taxes - that was a year ago.
    This monitor's price is arround 390€ (guru3d.com). The monitor is fantastic except that I wouldnt buy it because of lack of 1440p

    Well then feel free to ignore this monitor and go pay double for what you're after. Meanwhile leave the rest of us who can't afford to buy the absolute best to have the option of not buying the absolute best.

    I just see the size, then the resolution and stop reading. The price is laughable too because there are many very good quality 1080p screens available for less.
