External Reviews

Sentiment Score 39%
Reviewers from rtings have found the following***:
The MSI Optix G273QF is a great gaming monitor thanks to its 165Hz refresh rate, FreeSync support, and G-SYNC compatibility. It's good for office use and decent for content creators because it has a large 27 inch screen and 1440p resolution. The stand has terrible ergonomics, so it may be hard to place in an ideal viewing position. It doesn't support HDR and doesn't have many extra features.
