Product Comparison: AOC AG273QCX vs MSI Optix MAG271CQR
- The resolution when connected to DP is great.

- The resolution makes the text crisp and easier to read.
- The resolution is in the perfect spot for me and I'm very happy.

- Up until now I've stuck with full HD (1080p) screens, but I finally decided it was time the upgrade to 1440p.
