Introducing the MSI G2712V, a new 27-inch 1080p gaming monitor designed with price-conscious gamers in mind. Although targeted at video gamers, this model may require some compromises when it comes to image sharpness.
The screen’s resolution is 1,920 x 1,080 pixels, allowing for a high refresh rate even with less powerful hardware or higher graphics settings. However, some users may perceive the Full HD resolution on a 27-inch screen as blurry, and it might result in limitations in productive applications.
The MSI G2712V boasts a maximum refresh rate of 100 Hz and a one-millisecond MPRT response time. With FreeSync support, the monitor’s image display can synchronize with the graphics card’s output, effectively reducing issues like screen tearing. It offers a brightness of 300 cd/m² and a contrast ratio of 1,000:1. According to the manufacturer, it covers over 108.27 percent of the sRGB color space and approximately 84.14 percent of the DCI-P3 color space.
The panel is 6-bit with FRC support, providing a simulated color depth of 8 bits. Connectivity options include HDMI 1.4b and DisplayPort 1.2a, along with a standard jack socket. The monitor lacks ergonomic functions, but it can be tilted between -5° and 20°. There’s also no USB hub, but it does feature a night vision function to brighten dark images, particularly helpful in multiplayer titles.
