    My USB on the monitor doesn't work. Do you have a solution for this?

  2. BitonOffSteak

    Can someone tell me if this has G-Sync compatibility? AND is the MPG27CQ2 the same as this one, just a newer version?

  3. Jaws Fishing

    Hi im currently in the market fir a new monitor and currently the mpg27cq and the mag272cqr are at the same price what monitor would you recommend i buy?

  4. Rudi Bácsi

    I have MSI Optix MPG27CQ, but i see red shadow and other ghosting often.
    Is my monitor faulty, or is my video card small? (AMD R9 390 8GB) (sorry if my English is bad)

  5. [-dokutah-]

    How would I calibrate this model at home? What tools would I need?

  6. ewww, i thougth that topic is about great rgb colors for editing, I'm leaving dissapointing…

  7. mc st

    It's on sale now for $349 USD, if somebody is interested.(mag272qr, I think that is the newer and no RGB strip version)

  8. Versatility

    Why is there no mounting support for this monitor.. Such a shame.

  9. goorii

    AOC Agon AG273QCX would be better than this? What do you think?

  10. Plumbud

    No measured response times. lame.

  11. I have this monitor how do you turn it on bye itself
    With out projecting your laptop to it

  12. wolfNflux

    Too bad.u guys didn't mention the msi optic mag27cq instead. Literally the same but with less I/O and a lot cheaper in price. I have one. Got it second hand for 200usd

  13. Bernielokz

    I want this to game with my Xbox one X. And also to use it as an external monitor for my MacBook Pro when I edit in FCPX and Lightroom. Will this be a good buy ?

  14. Abdo Ebrahim

    Can you post the benchmark for the response time and input lag on Facebook as it is missing in this review

  15. Sqooky

    this man look like someone you see in a bookstore

  16. Rudi Bácsi

    I have an MSI Optix MPG27CQ, ghosting and red shift is terible 🙁

  17. Harmonodram

    Why we have to look at the guy 50% of testing time? So pathetic

  18. Yordan Sergeev

    Is there a chance that you can provide a calibration file or settings for the monitor ?

  19. lvcid_fx

    i am going to get this monitor on christmas i am so exited

  20. S.Khan

    What are the post calibration settings?

  21. Gold

    Gaming monitor and you dont test the response time.. i am disappointed

  22. Aikano9

    Was about to buy this, but after the shit they just pulled with you, I ain’t gonna buy it

  23. tuckerrobinson13

    So, I have this model, however cannot mount it on my arm bar. The hexagon back does not fit any model of adapter. Does anyone have any thoughts on this?

  24. Ryan S

    Still one of the best VA monitors. The manufacturing could be a little better but the VA market is missing this monitor.

    Currently you have the typical $200-300 VA with 10ms response or the Samsung g7 at $700 with 4ms response and nothing between, well besides this.

  25. BeTakh

    Can anyone help me? i have this exact monitor, but i cannot set it to 144 hz?
