Im coming from an HP2311Gt,a monitor from 2011,a regular non gaming monitor. I recently bought the MSI Optix G27C4 because of its ability to use up to 165hz and saying its an 1ms monitor,while not being overly expensive. Im far from being impressed. The screen looks bland,whites look like yellow,its lacking colour and text looks like garbage on desktop/browsing compared to my HP monitor. Reading text is damn near hurting my eyes with upping dpi to 110 - 120% and then still its nowhere near great to look at. Reading this text right here on this forum looks good,but when i scroll it has an excessive amount of ghosting,its like enabling chromatic aberation in a game. In games it adds a crazy amount of motion blur and ghosting which is also very apparant when doing several tests on https://www.testufo.com/ghosting. Even my text is ghosting quite a bit when im scrolling in my browser or windows,even when adjusting Cleartype. And no matter what i try to change,its usually only making things worse. E.g if i try to improve my screens quality by adjusting the contrast/gamma/brightness ratio,the ghosting will be more excessive overall. Do want to add that fullscreen Video playback ( Movies ) look great, as watching this video or , but Gaming/typical window use/browsing does not. Is there some firmware patch coming out soon or some new driver with better calibrated settings ? Because im about to send this back and use my monitor from 2011 again wich has less ghosting,less motion blur,better colours,and better contrast/brightness ratio aswell. And although my older Hp 2311GT is not 1ms,it felt Much smoother than the MSI G27C4 for some reason. Its damn near absurd that this is supposed to be an "1ms" "gaming" monitor and what it describes to do is absolute bs from what ive seen and most settings you can enable in the monitors menu will just make things worse. All my games play and look worse than on my older monitor. Its also weird how you sell a 165hz screen but are unable to add in a DP cable which is needed to reach 165hz but instead give us a HDMI cable that only goes up to 120hz. I don't know what to do atm. Shall i just return this ? Shall i wait for some firmware patch or a new monitor driver file ? Im really not happy with my purchase and atm seriously regret buying this. ___________________________________ I posted this message in the MSI forum ( https://forum-en.msi.com/index.php?topic=329412.0 ) ,hoping for a reply.Im so bummed atm hoping I would get Less motion blur a faster response time and better looking screen,but it seems to be the complete opposite Also want to ask can using a 20pin DP cable compared to a 19pin be the cause of excessive ghosting or a lack of screen quality ? Im using the 20pin so far,i just learned about how its recommended to use one without the 20pin being enabled since its giving extra volt you dont need. Like when i turn off my PC completely my mobo light is still on and one fan keeps spinning at a lower speed and i can hear the DP cable buzz a bit,giving power. Shall i just get my old CRT monitor out again because i remember ghosting/motion blur only having become an issue with all these new amazing 4k 8k ultimate refreshrate maximum response time superduper clear quality OMG SO AMAZING !!!! Lcd monitors . Its like they took one step forward but 3 steps back. We can have 4k 8k monitors with 165hz but more ghosting/motion blur than a monitor out of the early 2000's. It seems so hard to get a proper monitor nowadays without having to spend 1-2k,or i just had bad luck with buying this one.
