Picture Quality

After screen size and resolution, the next most important feature of a Display is its Color Reproduction Accuracy (defined by its color gamut specification).

This Monitor comes with 95% DCI P3 color gamut coverage — equivalent to 129.55% sRGB coverage. The color accuracy on this monitor should be Lifelike! Apart from giving you a truly world-class experience, it will also be useful for professionals who are into photo editing and color grading business.

Understanding the Color Gamut Specification

Color gamut spec of a Monitor is the measurement of the range of colors that the display can show.

Meaning, this specification determines the ability of a display to produce accurate colors. A display with low color gamut coverage will miss out on some colors (such as deep red), so the image produced will look "washed out" in colors.

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

For example, the color gamut of this Monitor is specified in DCI P3.

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

Color Gamut Chart

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

Understanding the static contrast ratio of a Display

Static contrast ratio of a Display corresponds to its Black levels. A Monitor with low static contrast ratio (<1000:1) will not produce deep blacks. Apart from this, such displays often suffer from backlight bleeds such as this:

This will impact your experience, especially in a dark room.

Static contrast ratio and resolution go hand in hand when it comes to details. To put it into perspective, a Display with low contrast ratio will produce less shades of colors, thus lesser detail overall.

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

This Display comes with a static contrast ratio of 3000 : 1, enough to achieve deep blacks.

DisplayHDR 400 is also supported on this Monitor, so that's a plus.

Coming to brightness, it is can achieve a maximum luminance of 530 nits. The backlight used on the panel is W-LED. This amount of brightness is good enough even for a well-lit room!

Gaming Performance

If you are planning to use this display primarily for gaming, you should get a Monitor that features the lowest input lag and response times.

The input lag on the MSI MPG ARTYMIS 273CQRX-QD is 5 ms and its minimum response time is 1 ms. So its a go-to Display if you are interested in gaming.

What is Input Lag and Why it matters ?

This lag is the amount of time at which your key-presses or mouse movements changes the content of your display. Though, this won't matter much if you aren't into competitive/FPS games like call of duty.

Although for better experience, get a Monitor that has an input lag and response time of less than 20ms.

Ergonomics and Dimensions

Now, coming to ergonomics — If you plan to wall mount the Monitor, you can make use of 100 x 100 mm VESA mount (to be purchased separately). It also supports Swivel and Tilt, however there is no support for Pivot on this Monitor.

The width of this Display is 23.9 inches while its height is 16.84 inches ( adjustable upto 3.94 in ).
