The MSI G273QPF with an IPS panel is a strong choice for both casual gaming and productivity at a budget price, offering a balance between image clarity and fast performance thanks to its good refresh rate and response time. Its 27-inch size and 2560 x 1440 resolution deliver sharp images, making it suitable for digital photo editing. However, it's not the best for HDR gaming or media consumption as it lacks strong HDR peak brightness and does not support HDR content well. The lack of an adjustable stand might affect ergonomics, but the monitor does include features like variable refresh rate to reduce screen tearing. Its connectivity is quite decent, with multiple HDMI 2.0 ports and a DisplayPort, but it does not have the latest HDMI 2.1 or USB-C ports, which could limit future usability for cutting-edge gaming systems or as a single-cable solution for laptops.
