Why Has it Scored 70?

MSI is an average PC monitor brand.
At over a year old this PC monitor is slightly out of date, and newer PC screens with more up to date technology are available.
It has running costs of only $57 over 5 years, which puts it in the cheapest 20% of all 1,800+ flatpanel monitors that we have calculated running costs for.
This PC monitor has some good features, but is also missing a couple of features:
Big display diagonal
2560 x 1440 pixels resolution
Less blue light
Size matters
The beauty is
From edge to edge
True color
144HZ REFRESH RATE + 1ms RESPONSE TIME

What is the Kagoo Score?

We calculate the Kagoo Score for each PC monitor by looking at its reviews, features, popularity, age, value for money and running costs.

The Kagoo Score is an easy way to understand whether the PC monitor is recommended.

The Kagoo Scores are constantly being updated. As newer, higher spec PC monitors come to market, the older PC monitors will gradually have their Kagoo Score reduced.
