MSI Optix MPG321UR Gaming Monitor Review

So far, high-resolution, high-refresh games have been a pipe dream, but since a few 4K 144Hz monitors will come out at the end of 2021, this dream game monitor feature set seems to finally exist.

Optix MPG321UR is one of MSI’s new flagship displays, based on a long list of high-end specifications, it looks like an impressive product. It is a bit more expensive than Asus’ TUF gaming monitor VG28UQL1A or Eve Spectrum, but it is also larger, brighter and has a more impressive color gamut, which to a large extent justifies the price increase.
