This is a good price for what this monitor is superficially, but let me tell you 1080p at 27 inches is a no go in my book, I used to have one and once I got 1440p 144hz 27 inch ips i realized what I was missing out on it makes 1080p look blurry. Honestly if you have $200 to spend and want 27 inch get 1440p at 60hz even if your gaming. Despite what gamers everywhere will insist, 144hz not really extremely noticable, you do notice it and it kinda makes 60hz look a little choppy if you have them side by side but only a little, it's really more of a nice to have, like it's really on the level of importance as having a usb hub built into the monitor, but maybe a little more important. If you just have 60hz your brain fills in the info and it looks smooth enough, but 1440p is much better to have imo everything just looks clearer. It's much easier to interpolate smoothness when given a high resolution at a low refresh rate than it is to interpolate clarity at a high refresh rate but low resolution

I should also mention though one of the biggest plusses with 120hz and above is that if you play 60fps youtube videos at 2x speed you need 120hz because otherwise the 60hz screen can't keep up and the video and even the audio very surprisingly will lag and skip and there will be black frames, it's strange but if you have 120hz the screen and gpu are in sync with the video and everything is good. I don't know what exactly causes these out of sync issues like if it has something to do with the gpu decoding the audio at the same time and keeping in sync with the screen but it's something to keep in mind

Agreed for the most part. 1440p is a good DPI @ 27". However, there is a niche for people that don't need 1440p but rather 1080p gaming @ 144hz with a 27" monitor. 1440p @ 144hz would require quite a bit of.. neglected 2080Ti's Big Grin
Just set in-game resolution to 1080p and it looks good, and use 1440p for everything else. 1440p 144hz is literally $50 more.
Imo 27" and 1080p is way too big for the resolution. 21.5" 1080p was killing me for a while from where I sit.

Not available in MN, ugh. Was hoping to upgrade from my TN panel to something a little better. Maybe the next decent IPS.

This is a great deal for a 144hz monitor. But trust me, 27 inches at 1080P really looks inferior compared to 24 inch. If you plan on sitting 3-4 feet away you could get away with this but otherwise do not buy.
Been using a 27" 1080p for years now as my main gaming monitor, no issues. I guess it depends how good of a monitor you get, but since mine is ages old now everything has to be better than this, lol.

Exactly my reasoning too. We'd all like the higher version of something, but realistically speaking... QHD cost more, same refresh rate at QHD cost more, gpu to run at monitor refresh rate (3070 or 2080ti) cost more. Again... Ideally, yes 1440p is better resolution for the size, but we're talking different price point all together for gaming. Sure there are cheaper 1440p monitors nowadays that has high refresh rate, but you still run into the issue of being able to run it, graphics wise. Also, there are other sacrifices that the cheaper ones make that isn't obvious on paper, like cheap panels.

I can only solely speak on the MSI Costco one I have currently but will be returning it. I do feel like FHD isn't enough because of the pixel destiny but you are aware of that and don't mind. I found some pictures and videos were a bit pixelated more than I would like due to the density. I have a Acer 23" with the same specs as the MSI except it only exceeds 144hrtz while the MSI can reach up to 165 hrtz. My Acer has a bit more darker black than the MSI does. I felt like the MSI has a bit of a washout color even after tweaking with the settings. This happen to be worst when I brought out to the living room where the room is very bright. I didn't have this issue as much with my Acer. I bought this for gaming and editing photos. But if all that doesn't effect your choice MSI would be awesome. Fps was great with the monitor. Lots of features. I believe it's VESA compatible (don't quote me). The curve panel is really awesome for gaming as you don't have to move your head as much. This Gigabyte does have a tilt and height adjustment vs the MSI is only tilt. Good luck bro!
You brought up some really good points, I'll have a chance when it arrives tomorrow to see it in person. As long as what you said about the picture quality doesn't affect FPS games, then I should be good. I'm not a content creater... Just a software dev, so I have a 4k monitor for crisp text that is a must for coders. However, I'm using that same monitor for gaming...using MBP16 boot camp windows...downscaled to 1080p. It manages to run at avg 45fps in warzone, but the picture quality is horrendous. I haven't gotten around to building a PC again yet, so I'm hoping (and the reason why) getting a 1080p monitor will take pressure off the MacBook GPU and picture will be better because it's not being downscaled to 1080p from 4k.

I appreciate your input, I'll try to have my own quick input by tomorrow night.

gna keep it nice and simple 27" at 1080p will have noticeable pixels. with my experience it just looks terrible. anything above 24" needs to be 1440p

Anyone have personal experience with the monitor? I recently ordered MSI Optix 27" Class FHD FreeSync Curved Gaming Monitor for $30 MSRP on Costco's website. I honestly looked through pages of Google search for technical reviews for each, but I can't find any. All the ones I've found just read out the specs and the "benefits", but not really anything about the monitor experience.

The notable differences between MSI Optix G27C5 and Gigabyte G27F:
- MSI is VA panel vs Gigabyte IPS
- MSI has higher refresh rate (although not enough to matter to call it a difference)
- Gigabyte has more features that can actually be useful (Aim stabilizer and Black Equalizer)
- Both are Freesync premium, but only Gigabyte is G-sync compatible (not the same as g-sync certified but better than nothing)
- Gigabyte has a higher peak brightness (250 vs 300 i think)

This are at least what I felt to be important. There were other minor panel differences, but not enough to matter or I really care about. After rebates and/or discount, both monitors sell for $200. While Gigabyte looks better on paper, from what I could find for reviews (mainly on personal reviews in places like newegg, bestbuy, etc., nothing technical), Gigabyte is a pain to deal with. Their quality control also seems to be an issue. Combine that with purchasing from newegg, it can be a major headache.

The other things I managed to find about Gigabyte was, while the additional features are nice on paper, it doesn't necessarily translate as well on screen. One technical review I manage to find said the Black Equalizer washes out the game (which is understandable), but it can get to a point that it actually degrades the resolution of the game and not just wash it out.

I don't really care about the whole 27" FHD crap. It's purely for gaming, so I'm not worries about the color accuracy or pixel density. Both monitors seem to be good enough for its intended purpose.

If anyone has any input, that'd be great. In the mean time I'm still going with MSI to try it out. Play some games and see if the dark scenes are a problem. I hate being killed in warzone because a full black latex suit woman is camping in a dark corner inside a building with a damn origin.
I have an msi optix 27" mag , and my monitor is compatible with nvidia gsync drivers and is gsync compatible. Only in certain settings but it is possible.
