MSI Optix MPG341CQR 34-inch 144 Hz Gaming Monitor Review

Setup & General Usage

Setting up the Optix MPG341CQR is pretty much like any other monitor out there. Connect power, your desired display cable, but also connect the included USB cable to an open USB port on your computer. The large hole in the stand makes it easy to route cables and they really are not visible from the font of the display.

As I mentioned the back of the monitor has RGB lighting on the one side. While this is cool, it is not something that you are really going to see when you are actually sitting down at the monitor. I really wish we could get displays that have something like NZXT’s HUE 2 Ambient Kit built-in.

If you press in the joystick on the back of the monitor it will bring up the on-screen menu system. It is quite good, but check out the next page to see why you’ll never need to use it.

The Optix MPG341CQR offers a UWQHD (3440×1440) resolution, which I think is perfect for the 34-inch size. Ultrawide’s are typically marketed for productivity, which makes perfect sense as you can easily have two windows open side-to-side with each being around 1720×1440. Ever since I started using a 34-inch ultrawide a couple of years ago I’ve got used to having two different windows up at once, basically using the 34-inch display as two different displays, except it is one with no annoying middle border!
