MSI Optix MEG381CQR Ultrawide Gaming Monitor
MSI has seen fantastic growth in the gaming monitor market over the last couple of years, with solid, well spec’d offerings to suit most categories that might be on your wish list. The MEG381CQR is the company’s latest ultrawide display, which is another double honouree at the CES Innovation Awards for 2020. Surprisingly, the award wasn’t given for the model name, but rather the streamlined OSD controls, which uses a dial similar to the one implemented on the desktop PC listed above. This monitor also houses a front-facing HMI OLED display to view settings. With both of these features combined, this monitor should deliver a significantly improved control method for setting up the display, making picture adjustments, activating different image profiles, changing the refresh rate etc. We’ll be looking forward to seeing it ourselves at CES in January
