MSI Launches MAG272QR – A High Refresh Rate Gaming Monitor

Previously at Blur Busters, we covered an article on MSI Tweeting about its new MAG272CQR. The CQR, by comparison, is a curved monitor, where the QR isn’t, despite that, the MAG272QR looks like a gaming monitor that’s going to turn a few heads.

The MSI MAG272QR is a 27-inch VA monitor running at 2560×1440. The monitor has a 165 Hz refresh rate and sports a 1ms (GtG) response time.  The monitor supports variable refresh rate through AMD FreeSync and has a stand with support for swivel and tilt, as well as rotation into landscape and portrait.

As is, the monitor has support for HDR, and includes Anti-Flicker and Less Blue Light, with Night Vision and Game Mode. While all of these are pretty common, they are still great to have whenever using a new monitor with these kinds of factory settings.
