MSI’s Optixs G242 is a 1920x1080p monitor with max 144Hz at 1ms response times. It’s a solid all rounder for the average gamer.

I would recommend it for either gaming or general productivity. It’s not the best gaming monitor, but 144Hz/1ms for this price is hard to beat!

MSI’s Optix G242 is only 23.8″ @ 1920×1080, but is also a 144 Hz monitor.

The features listed by MSI are below:

  • IPS Panel – Optimize screen colors and brightness to enhance your viewing experience.
  • 144Hz Refresh Rate – Respond faster with smoother frames.
  • 1ms Response Time – Eliminate screen tearing and choppy frame rates.
  • Night Vision – Smart black tuner to brighten your day by bringing out the fine details in dark areas.
  • Wide Color Gamut – Game colors and details will look more realistic and refined.
  • Game Mode – Choose your gaming style to experience the best visual effects.
  • Frameless Design – Enjoy the ultimate gaming experience with super narrow bezels.
  • Anti-Flicker and Less Blue Light – Game even longer and prevent eye strain and fatigue.
  • 178° Wide Viewing Angle – Colors and details will stay sharp at more angles with a 178° wide viewing angle.

MSI’s Optix G242 has Adaptive Sync to help with screen tearing. The 1ms response times are good for gaming. I’m not really a gamer, but do notice it when al tabbing and stuf. It’s got a very sturdy metal base and high quality finish.

I have started using it since my T.V. died. I use to rely on my old TV for a lot of coding work. The links on this page are Amazon affiliate links, so I will get a small percentage. They are all currently My Gear, I paid for them, and I do recommend them.

    Solid metal base with rubber feet. Clear picture and 1ms at 144Hz is decent for the price.
