MSI Optix G24C

MSI G24C Review by Alexander Gryzhin (=DEAD=)

The MSI Optix uses a 1920x1080 144hz A-MVA panel with AMD Free-Sync and a nice perceived black depth increasing dark matte grey bezel. Preset color accuracy is passable, but not that the MSI tries to achieve a 2.4 gamma curve which is high compared to the typical monitor and gamma curve used by most consumer media. Content not created with a 2.4 curve in mind will be too dark, a bit dulled, and suffer from loss of detail in dark scenes. Black uniformity issues or back-light bleed is also quite obvious on the unit Rtings tested. The MSI can be considered delay free, but does suffer from typical VA color smearing and streaking which can be seen in the pursuit camera photo.

Curved matte 144hz (Displayport & HDMI) AUO TN panel with AMD Free-Sync (48-144hz range), Displayport, HDMI x2, 3.5mm Audio Out, 2x UXB 2.0, a height adjustable stand and a fake frame-less casing with a perceived black depth decreasing inner black bezel.  It's pretty accurate, but has a preset blue tint and a wide gamut VA panel which over-saturates colors b by >40% unless the Cinema or Custom presets are used, but the Strategy mode provides the most accurate RGB color and gray scale balance.

Curved matte semi-wide gamut (22% over-saturation or 123% sRGB) 144hz VA panel with AMD Free-Sync (60-144hz), Displayport, Dual-Link DVI, HDMI 1.4, a height adjustable stand and a fake frame-less casing with a perceived black depth reducing inner black bezel.  It suffers from a slight preset green tint, but has nearly perfect linear 2.2 gamma.

Curved and fully adjustable matte 1920x1080 144hz VA panel with Displayport, 2x HDMI, 2x USB 3.0 and inaccurate color presets caused by the slightly too high and black crush inducing preset gamma, and strong preset blue tint.
