Product Overview

MSI MAG ARTYMIS 242C is a mainstream 24-inch FHD curved gaming monitor in MSI's 2021 lineup. It is powered by a basic 8-bit VA panel.
Its 1000R curvature provides a more immersive visual experience. Additionally, this monitor can get quite contrasty.
In terms of drawbacks, this monitor lacks HDR support, comes with limited adjustments, and is not very bright. Further, the 8-bit panel is rather limiting in terms of color reproduction.
