MSI Optix MPG341CQR is one of the most impressive gaming monitors of the year. Features include facial recognition software that recognises who's using the monitor at any given time. Night Vision mode brightens up the darkest parts of the display so that you don't lose the detail into the shadows. Eventually there'll be support for Amazon Alexa, letting you turn your desktop PC into a smart home hub.
