Product Overview

MSI Optix AG321CR is a mainstream 32-inch FHD curved gaming monitor in MSI's 2021 lineup. It is powered by a basic 8-bit VA panel.
Its 1500R curvature provides a more immersive visual experience. The included stand comes with tilt, swivel, pivot, and height adjustments that make for a more ergonomic viewing experience. Additionally, this monitor can get quite contrasty.
In terms of drawbacks, this monitor lacks HDR support, has very low pixel density, and is not very bright. Further, the 8-bit panel is rather limiting in terms of color reproduction.
