9 Reasons For for Choosing the MSI Optix G241VC

Faster Response Time

The MSI Optix G241VC is a 1 response time PC monitor, and so do the AOC Gaming CQ32G1 and the Samsung C27HG70. That's 4ms faster than the HP V270 and the LG 27MK430HB (5ms). More ...

The response time on a PC monitor is a measure of how quickly the monitor reacts to image data sent by the computer's graphics card. Fast response times are particularly important for gamers, who should ideally look for a response time of 8 milliseconds or less.

A faster (shorter) response time is better because fast moving graphics will appear smoother and the gaming experience will feel more responsive.

Higher Typical Contrast Ratio

The MSI Optix G241VC has a high (3000:1) typical contrast ratio, and so are the AOC Gaming CQ32G1 and the Samsung C27HG70, which is twice the typical contrast ratio of the HP V270 and the LG 27MK430HB (low). More ...

The contrast ratio is a measure of the ratio between the brightest part of the image and the darkest part of the image.

Monitors with a high contrast ratio will produce higher contrast, more vivid images.

HDCP

The MSI Optix G241VC has an HDCP (as does the HP V270), whereas the AOC Gaming CQ32G1, the LG 27MK430HB and the Samsung C27HG70 do not have this feature. More ...

HDCP stands for High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection - it is a protocol used by some encrypted DVD players to securely transfer information with no chance of interception.

A monitor with HDCP support will be able to read media from encrypted DVD players and other peripherals.

Better Kagoo Score

The MSI Optix G241VC has received a Kagoo Score of 90, whereas the AOC Gaming CQ32G1 scored 88, the HP V270 scored 85, the LG 27MK430HB scored 86 and the Samsung C27HG70 scored 87.

£7 Cheaper

The MSI Optix G241VC is £150 cheaper than the AOC Gaming CQ32G1, £56.98 cheaper than the HP V270, £6.94 cheaper than the LG 27MK430HB and £199.49 cheaper than the Samsung C27HG70.

Five Months Newer

The MSI Optix G241VC is one year newer than the AOC Gaming CQ32G1, 16 months newer than the HP V270, 13 months newer than the LG 27MK430HB and five months newer than the Samsung C27HG70

Cheaper to Run by £31 Over Five Years

The MSI Optix G241VC is £31 cheaper to run than the HP V270, £10 cheaper to run than the LG 27MK430HB and £20 cheaper to run than the Samsung C27HG70 over five years. More ...

Produces Better Picture Quality

9 Reasons Against for Choosing the MSI Optix G241VC

7.5" Smaller Display Diagonal

The MSI Optix G241VC has a display diagonal of 24, whereas the AOC Gaming CQ32G1 is a 31.5" PC monitor (7.5" bigger) and the HP V270, the LG 27MK430HB and the Samsung C27HG70 are all 27" PC monitors (3" bigger). More ...

The display diagonal is a measure of the size of the monitor. It is measured from one corner of the screen to the diagonally opposite corner of the screen.

A bigger display diagonal means that the screen will be larger and better for displaying lots of content or for seeing the detail in photos and videos.

Smaller Display Resolution

The MSI Optix G241VC has a display resolution of 1920 x 1080 (1080p) pixels pixels, and so are the HP V270 and the LG 27MK430HB, which is half as large display resolution as the AOC Gaming CQ32G1 and the Samsung C27HG70 (2560 x 1440 pixels). More ...

'Display Resolution' indicates the maximum resolution that the monitor is capable of displaying. 'Resolution' is the amount of pixels that make up the image displayed on the screen.

A larger display resolution means that the image will be more detailed, crisper and contain less visual flaws such as blurring.

Does Not Have a Built-in USB Hub

The MSI Optix G241VC does not have a built-in USB hub (As do the the AOC Gaming CQ32G1, the HP V270 and the LG 27MK430HB), whereas the Samsung C27HG70 has this feature. More ...

'USB Hub' indicates whether the monitor has a bank of USBs built into it or not.

A usb hub provides a helpful area to plug in memory cards, charging cables and other peripherals without having to ferret under your desk to plug them into the back of the computer.

Only One HDMI Port

The MSI Optix G241VC is a one HDMI port PC monitor, and so do the HP V270 and the LG 27MK430HB, whereas the Samsung C27HG70 only has two HDMI ports. More ...

The number of HDMI ports the monitor has.

More HDMI ports means that you can plug in more devices (computer, games console, DVD player, etc) to the screen at once.

Fewer Sellers

Only 11 sellers sells the MSI Optix G241VC, but 13 sellers sell the AOC Gaming CQ32G1 and 14 sellers sell the LG 27MK430HB. More ...

The smaller the number of retailers that stock this PC monitor, the lower the competition amongst retailers to keep prices low.
Less Popular

The MSI Optix G241VC is a less popular choice amongst buyers.

Appreciably Lower Expert Review Score

The average expert rating of the MSI Optix G241VC is 85%, whereas the average expert rating of the AOC Gaming CQ32G1 is 95% (based on 6 reviews).

Lower User Review Score

11 Reasons For for Choosing the AOC Gaming CQ32G1

Bigger Display Diagonal

The AOC Gaming CQ32G1 has a display diagonal of 31.5, but the HP V270, the LG 27MK430HB and the Samsung C27HG70 are all only 27" PC monitors (4.5" smaller) and the MSI Optix G241VC is only a 24" PC monitor (7.5" smaller). More ...

The display diagonal is a measure of the size of the monitor. It is measured from one corner of the screen to the diagonally opposite corner of the screen.

A bigger display diagonal means that the screen will be larger and better for displaying lots of content or for seeing the detail in photos and videos.

Larger Display Resolution

The AOC Gaming CQ32G1 has a display resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels pixels, and so is the Samsung C27HG70, which is twice as large display resolution as the HP V270, the LG 27MK430HB and the MSI Optix G241VC (1920 x 1080 (1080p) pixels). More ...

'Display Resolution' indicates the maximum resolution that the monitor is capable of displaying. 'Resolution' is the amount of pixels that make up the image displayed on the screen.

A larger display resolution means that the image will be more detailed, crisper and contain less visual flaws such as blurring.

80% Faster Response Time

The AOC Gaming CQ32G1 is a 1 response time PC monitor, and so do the MSI Optix G241VC and the Samsung C27HG70. That's 4ms faster than the HP V270 and the LG 27MK430HB (5ms). More ...

The response time on a PC monitor is a measure of how quickly the monitor reacts to image data sent by the computer's graphics card. Fast response times are particularly important for gamers, who should ideally look for a response time of 8 milliseconds or less.

A faster (shorter) response time is better because fast moving graphics will appear smoother and the gaming experience will feel more responsive.

Higher Typical Contrast Ratio

The AOC Gaming CQ32G1 has a high (3000:1) typical contrast ratio, and so are the MSI Optix G241VC and the Samsung C27HG70, which is twice the typical contrast ratio of the HP V270 and the LG 27MK430HB (low). More ...

The contrast ratio is a measure of the ratio between the brightest part of the image and the darkest part of the image.

Monitors with a high contrast ratio will produce higher contrast, more vivid images.

Headphone Out

13 Reasons Against for Choosing the LG 27MK430HB

Smaller Display Diagonal

The LG 27MK430HB has a display diagonal of 27 (as do the HP V270 and the Samsung C27HG70), but the AOC Gaming CQ32G1 is a 31.5" PC monitor (4.5" bigger) and the MSI Optix G241VC is a 24" PC monitor (3" smaller). More ...

The display diagonal is a measure of the size of the monitor. It is measured from one corner of the screen to the diagonally opposite corner of the screen.

Only 1920 X 1080 (1080p) Pixels Pixels Resolution

The LG 27MK430HB has a display resolution of 1920 x 1080 (1080p) pixels pixels, and so are the HP V270 and the MSI Optix G241VC, which is half as large display resolution as the AOC Gaming CQ32G1 and the Samsung C27HG70 (2560 x 1440 pixels). More ...

'Display Resolution' indicates the maximum resolution that the monitor is capable of displaying. 'Resolution' is the amount of pixels that make up the image displayed on the screen.

The response time on a PC monitor is a measure of how quickly the monitor reacts to image data sent by the computer's graphics card. Fast response times are particularly important for gamers, who should ideally look for a response time of 8 milliseconds or less.

A faster (shorter) response time is better because fast moving graphics will appear smoother and the gaming experience will feel more responsive.

Half the Typical Contrast Ratio

The LG 27MK430HB has a low (1000:1) typical contrast ratio, and so is the HP V270, which is half the typical contrast ratio of the AOC Gaming CQ32G1, the MSI Optix G241VC and the Samsung C27HG70 (high). More ...

The contrast ratio is a measure of the ratio between the brightest part of the image and the darkest part of the image.

The LG 27MK430HB does not have a built-in USB hub (As do the the AOC Gaming CQ32G1, the HP V270 and the MSI Optix G241VC), but the Samsung C27HG70 has this feature. More ...

'USB Hub' indicates whether the monitor has a bank of USBs built into it or not.

A usb hub provides a helpful area to plug in memory cards, charging cables and other peripherals without having to ferret under your desk to plug them into the back of the computer.

Only One HDMI Port

The number of HDMI ports on the LG 27MK430HB is one, and so do the HP V270 and the MSI Optix G241VC, but the Samsung C27HG70 only has two HDMI ports. More ...

More HDMI ports means that you can plug in more devices (computer, games console, DVD player, etc) to the screen at once.
