The monitor comes with a 120 Hz "console mode" for compatibility with the Playstation 5 and XBox consoles. This budget-midrange monitor is also able to offer deeper colors than most others in its price range.

Walmart is currently selling the MSI Optix G272 IPS gaming monitor for $100 USD off the original launch price of $260. The deal is notable for the large 27-inch display size, fast 144 Hz refresg rate, and fast 1 ms response times to make this particular monitor fit for fast-paced gaming.

Other than the core specifications mentioned above, the Optix G272 also offers >90 percent DCI-P3 coverage and AMD adaptive sync. Its main disadvantage is the native resolution of only 1080p whereas pricier 27-inch monitors are typically 1440p or QHD. The lower PPI can be advantageous for gamers looking to maximize frame rate at the cost of resolution, but those with more powerful GeForce RTX 3070 or 3080 class GPUs will have the headroom to pump out both higher frame rates and resolutions than what this budget-midrange gaming monitor was designed for.
