HP OMEN Quad HD 27" MSI Optix AG32C
3 Reasons For
NVIDIA G-Sync
The HP OMEN Quad HD 27" supports NVIDIA G-Sync, however the MSI Optix AG32C does not support this feature.

G-Sync is a system for gaming monitors that aims to reduce the amount of screen tearing - a visual flaw caused when the screen refreshes while a picture is still being sent to it, meaning that the monitor tries to display 2 images at once.

Reduced screen tearing allows for a cleaner, smoother gameplay experience, with less visual flaws.

Read more Read less | Edit
Energy Efficiency Rating is Higher
The HP OMEN Quad HD 27" has a European Union Energy Efficiency Rating of "A+", but the MSI Optix AG32C has a rating of "B".
Better Brand
HP PC monitors have an average rating of 91.1%, however MSI only has an average rating of 86.6%.
7 Reasons For
4.5" Bigger Display Diagonal
The MSI Optix AG32C is a 31.5 PC monitor. That's 4.5" bigger than the HP OMEN Quad HD 27" (27").

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.

Read more Read less | Edit
A Lot Faster Response Time
The MSI Optix AG32C has a response time of 1, however the HP OMEN Quad HD 27" is a 1.8ms response time PC monitor (0.8ms slower).

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.

Read more Read less | Edit
10% Wider Horizontal Viewing Angle
The MSI Optix AG32C is a 178 horizontal viewing angle PC monitor. That's 18° wider than the HP OMEN Quad HD 27" (160°).

The horizontal viewing angle dictates the maximum angle at which the monitor can be properly viewed.

A larger viewing angle means that the monitor can be watched from many different parts of a room successfully. Conversely, a very small viewing angle means you would effectively have to sit directly in front of the monitor to be able to view the screen successfully.

Read more Read less | Edit
Headphone Out
The MSI Optix AG32C has a headphone out, but the HP OMEN Quad HD 27" does not.

'Headphone Out' denotes whether the monitor has an audio passthrough, allowing your to plug headphones directly into the monitor, and have the sound from your computer run through them.

A direct headphone out is helpful if you want to listen to music from your computer - it means you can use a headset without having to rummage under your desk to plug the cable into the back of your computer.

Read more Read less | Edit
Cheaper by £300
The MSI Optix AG32C is £300 cheaper than the HP OMEN Quad HD 27".

A greater number of shops increases the chances of the product remaining in stock and also increases the price competition amongst retailers for this PC monitor.
