ABOUT THIS MONITOR

The MSI G321CUV is a 32 inch 4K Display from MSI. It was launched in 2022. It comes with a 10-bit Curved VA panel with Anti-glare/Matte finish.

Picture Quality

After screen size and resolution, the next important feature of a Display that impacts picture quality is its Color Gamut.

The MSI G321CUV features 99% sRGB color gamut coverage. Thus the color reproduction quality on this Monitor will be excellent! Your viewing experience will be world class.

Understanding the Color Gamut Specification

Color gamut spec of a display indicates the range of colors that the monitor can show.

In layman terms, it determines the ability of a monitor to produce accurate colors. A monitor with low color gamut coverage will miss out on some colors (such as deep red), thus producing a "washed out" picture.

It is specified in different units - sRGB(most popular), NTSC, DCI P3 Adobe RGB, rec.2020.

In case of this Monitor, it is specified using sRGB.

But you don't need to worry about that, below is a chart that will help you choosing a Monitor with good color accuracy.

Color Gamut Chart

Other than color accuracy, the static contrast ratio of a monitor has equally important role in picture quality.

Understanding Static Contrast

A display with high enough static contrast ratio will produce deep blacks while a display with low contrast ratio (<1000:1) will produce images that may look muddy as shown in below image.

Example of a display with low contrast ratio

As you see, this will affect your experience considerably.

Also, a Display with high constrast ratio allows you to see more details. So, resolution and static contrast ratio go hand in hand in a sense.

If given a choice, always prefer a FHD Display with high contrast ratio over a 4K Display with low contrast ratio.

This display features a static contrast ratio of 3000 : 1, enough to display deep blacks and eye-catching visuals.

HDR is also supported on this Monitor in form of HDR10.

As for brightness, it is can achieve a maximum brightness of 250 nits with the help of W-LED backlight.

Gaming Performance

Now if you need a display primarily for gaming, make sure to get a Monitor that features the lowest input lag and response times.

Sadly, there is no specification for input lag on this Monitor.

But since this is not a cheap Display from MSI, input lag on this Monitor could be 20ms or below.

What is Input lag ?

This lag is the latency at which inputs changes the content of your Monitor. For casual Non-FPS games, input lag doesn't matter much.

But ideally, look for a Monitor that has an input lag and response time of less than 20ms.

Coming to ergonomics — VESA mount is supported on this Monitor with an interface size of 100 x 100 mm. However, there is no Swivel or Pivot support in this monitor except Tilt support.

The Monitor measures 32 inches vertically and 28.99 inches horizontally.

Overall it weighs around 7.3 KGs including stand. Without stand, it weighs 6.1 KGs.
