What customers say about "Connectivity"
MSI Optix MAG321CQR Curved Gaming Monitor
  • Comes with all components needed for connection and setup.
  • Excellent options for connecting a monitor, the connectors are quite convenient.
  • USB ports aren't 3.0 and aren't exactly convenient being on the rear of the panel.
  • The monitor will not always recognize the DP connection once it've been in power saving mode for a while.
  • Displayport wouldn't work out the box, had to connect the hdmi just for it to get a signal and only occasionally would the displayport get a signal.
