What customers say about "Key Specs"
AOC C27G1 Curved Full HD Gaming Monitor
  • Some people warned me not to buy a 27 inch screen with 1080p resolution. Well I did anyways and Im extremely happy for this price especially.
  • I had zero dead pixels and the 144hz refresh rate makes gaming super fluid and the curved screen is an added bonus with great viewing angles.
  • The upside of the lower 1080p resolution is that you don't need a monster PC to play at high frame rates.
  • Decided on this product against ones with higher resolution, for an everyday office/occasion light game use, and really enjoy using it.
  • As the resolution is quite low, the individual pixels are more visible.
MSI Optix MAG271C Curved Gaming Monitor
  • Great screen size and resolution.
  • I mostly play games on it, but I do watch movies as well, and the resolution is just perfect.
  • Well I figured what was important to me was going to be screen size and refresh rate. Really good resolution.
  • I liked the screen size, curvature, resolution, and refresh rate.
  • The curvature is actually really nice with good resolution of this monitor.

What customers say about "Features"
AOC C27G1 Curved Full HD Gaming Monitor
  • The FreeSync feature is very prominent and noticable while playing games.
  • Big screen for gaming. Curve is a nice feature. Stand is fantastic.
  • I really wish the design took up less desk space. The height adjustment is a nice feature, though.
  • Extremely narrow bezzel makes multi-screen set ups look almost natural and multitasking in several windows becomes trivial.
  • One of the main selling points for me would be the fact the screen is both height and angle adjustable.
MSI Optix MAG271C Curved Gaming Monitor
  • The base of the monitor is a heavy metal which is a very nice feature.
  • There is also a smart headset feature on the left side which is super cool.
  • It has some cool features like the stand that pops out from the side to hold a headset
  • The ability to put an aiming reticle on the center of the screen really good feature.
  • This is a great monitor for gaming, it has many great features that are easy to use such as, different video modes.
