Product Overview

MSI Optix G27C6 is a premium 27-inch FHD 1500R-curved gaming monitor in MSI's 2020 lineup. It is powered by a basic 8-bit VA panel.
Its 1500R curvature provides a more immersive visual experience. In terms of color reproduction, one can expect above average performance. 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.

Sentiment Score 35%
Reviewers from rtings have found the following***:
MSI Optix G27C6 is designed for gaming and offers good performance in that regard. It has a 165Hz refresh rate with VRR support and low input lag. Sadly, the response time is slow, and motion looks blurry. It's just okay for office use or content creators because it has a less-than-ideal 1080p resolution.
