The Best OLED Gaming Monitors to Buy in 2024

Share this content

Introduction

If you’re in the market for a new monitor and have your eye on the growing range of OLED technology displays available, this guide will hopefully help you find the best OLED gaming monitors to buy in 2024 to suit your needs. We’ll run through at top level our top picks in each size category currently available, and provide a summary of each model along with any useful links where you can get further information, including our detailed reviews.

OLED Panels Pros and Cons

Mainstream OLED displays in traditional and sensible monitor sizes first appeared on the market last year in 2022, and there’s now a decent choice of size, manufacturer and price range available. This panel technology is mainly aimed at dynamic content uses like gaming, video and multimedia. They’ve got excellent, near-instant response times, offer high refresh rates with excellent motion clarity in gaming, and are also very well positioned to handle HDR games and video. The panels offer per-pixel level dimming so you avoid any issues with blooming or halos during HDR usage, as well as being able to individually turn pixels off to deliver true blacks and a basically infinite contrast ratio.

On the other hand they are less well suited to static content, with some challenges in text rendering caused by the somewhat unusual pixel layouts of the panels. The main challenge here though is around the risk of image retention and burn-in, so make sure you consider your usage carefully. You may want to check out our 5 Things to Know Before You Buy an OLED video too before you make your decision.

One key thing to keep in mind here that we will talk about in the recommendations is that there are two competing panel technologies being used here. WOLED from LG.Display and QD-OLED from Samsung. Each has it’s own slightly different performance characteristics and pros and cons, so you might need to consider your individual preference and uses before deciding which is right for you.

Our Recommendations for the Best OLED Gaming Monitors

Having reviewed and used many of the OLED display options on the market, as well as carefully considering reviews and opinions from other well-established reviewers, we’ve picked out what we consider to be the best OLED gaming monitors you can buy right now in a range of different sizes. These are arranged in order of size below from smallest to largest.

27″ – (N America region) – MSI MPG 271QRX

First up is the most popular size and form factor currently available, a 27” 16:9 aspect ratio display. There’s many manufacturers offering 27” models now and the vast majority of them use the same LG.Display WOLED panel with 1440p resolution and 240Hz refresh rate. Our long standing pick of the bunch was the Asus ROG Swift PG27AQDM (reviewed) but that has now been usurped by the MSI MPG 271QRX we recently reviewed. It’s got the same 2560 x 1440 resolution, but a higher 360Hz refresh rate and also uses a QD-OLED panel with several performance characteristics which we prefer, or which out-perform the wide range of WOLED alternatives. This is also the most competitively priced new 27″ QD-OLED in North America, and has a really impressive feature set.

Key Specs

SpecThis screen
Size:27″
Aspect Ratio:16:9
Format:Flat
Technology:QD-OLED
Resolution:2560 x 1440
Refresh Rate:360Hz

Things we like

The 360Hz refresh rate along with the amazing response times of the QD-OLED panel delivers excellent motion clarity experience, roughly equivalent in fact to a 540Hz LCD monitor. This offers some small but noticeable improvements over the 240Hz models available in this space, and make it the fastest OLED monitor currently available. It also allows for support for higher frame rates and reduced overall system latency so is even better for gaming.

The 1440p resolution is well suited to a screen of this size and the text clarity is improved nicely with the modern gen 3 QD-OLED panel being used. It looks sharper and clearer than the competing WOLED panels and is therefore better for text, office and general work. For HDR there is impressive brightness thanks to the QD-OLED panel and it is accurately set up in both SDR and HDR modes. The semi-glossy screen coating of the panel also provides a cleaner and clearer image than the competing WOLED monitors, and we prefer that appearance.

MSI’s model has an impressive feature set including USB type-C (with DP Alt mode and 90W power delivery), proper HDMI 2.1 ports for consoles, a KVM switch, fan-less design, excellent range of OLED care settings, and is backed by a 3 year warranty that also now includes burn-in cover.

Things to keep in mind

The semi-glossy coating handles reflections fairly well, better than a fully glossy coating at least, but doesn’t diffuse light sources as well so may not be as well suited to brightly lit rooms or locations where you have windows or lights facing the panel as a WOLED panel might be. The other drawback of QD-OLED panels is that in brighter rooms, the lack of a polarizer on the panel and the use of a Quantum Dot layer can cause blacks to look more greyish, reducing perceived contrast ratio. This is less apparent on WOLED panels.

Summary

The MPG 271QRX provides some very impressive performance, an excellent feature set, and is a nice step up from the 240Hz WOLED models in this space we think. If you’re after a 27″ OLED monitor, this would be our recommendation in North America. You can watch our full detailed video review for lots more information too.

Pros

  • 360Hz refresh rate provides excellent gaming performance
  • Excellent feature set on this model
  • Better text clarity and clearer screen coating than WOLED alternatives

Cons

  • Need to be mindful of external light sources and positioning due to QD-OLED panel

27″ – (Europe region) – Dell Alienware AW2725DF

As an alternative in other regions we would recommend the Dell Alienware AW2725DF we recently reviewed. It’s got the same 2560 x 1440 resolution and 360Hz refresh rate QD-OLED panel as the MSI MPG 271QRX covered above, but has a lower retail price in Europe and so is worth considering because of that. It doesn’t have the wide feature set though that the MSI model does and is lacking things like USB-C, KVM switch, proper HDMI 2.1 ports and so on. It’s still got an excellent warranty and Dell are well regarded in this space, so if you don’t need any of those extras that are offered on the MSI, there is a decent saving to be made here in Europe.

This is less apparent on WOLED panels.

The HDMI ports are only v2.0 despite the misleading advertising from Dell which provides a limitation for Xbox gaming where you need to use a virtual 4K input to use HDR mode, but then can’t use it at 4K 120Hz, if you could find content that support it of course. For PS5 you’d just run at the native 1440p 120Hz and HDR anyway so that’s fine, and features like VRR are supported here still. The screen is also fairly limited in its additional features, so keep that in mind if you were looking for things like USB-C, KVM, speakers and the likes as those are not included here.

Summary

The AW2725DF provides some very impressive performance and is a nice step up from the 240Hz WOLED models in this space we think. It’s not got the same features as MSI’s models, but is a fair bit cheaper in Europe and worth a look for sure. You can read our full detailed review for lots more information too.

  • Limited in additional features
  • Need to be mindful of external light sources and positioning

32″ – (N America region) MSI MPG 321URX

This is a new size category that is finally being released in 2024, and there’s a flurry of new screens being launched throughout the year. We’re going to have to cheat for this 32″ category and provide you with two recommendations, as the pricing of these new screens varies so much by region, it affects our recommendation!

If you’re in North America, then our pick of the bunch so far is the MSI MPG 321URX we reviewed recently. It’s built around a Samsung QD-OLED panel, offering a combination of 4K (3840 x 2160) resolution and 240Hz refresh rate – a dream spec for many people. This is the first time we’ve seen a higher pixel density as well, offering very good text rendering and clarity, and sharp crisp images for work and play. In N America, this screen is extremely competitively priced, around $250 – 300 USD less than competing models released so far from Dell and Asus at the time of writing.

Key Specs

SpecThis screen
Size:31.5″
Aspect Ratio:16:9
Format:Flat
Technology:QD-OLED
Resolution:3840 x 2160 “4K”
Refresh Rate:240Hz

Things we like

As ever the 240Hz refresh rate delivers excellent motion clarity and gaming experience, with the high pixel density providing a sharp, detailed and crisp image. Console support is also excellent on this screen. HDR provides a nice accurate, bright and vivid experience thanks to the QD-OLED panel. MSI have added quite a few extras as well including a uniform brightness operation in SDR mode, USB type-C connection, KVM support, PiP/PbP modes and loads of gaming settings. Being a QD-OLED panel this model also has the standard semi-glossy coating finish, looking nice and clear and clean. Text clarity is also very good thanks to the third gen QD-OLED panel and the high resolution.

Things to keep in mind

The semi-glossy coating handles reflections fairly well, better than a fully glossy coating at least, but doesn’t diffuse light sources as well so may not be as well suited to brightly lit rooms or locations where you have windows or lights facing the panel as a WOLED panel might be. The other drawback of QD-OLED panels is that in brighter rooms, the lack of a polarizer on the panel and the use of a Quantum Dot layer can cause blacks to look more greyish, reducing perceived contrast ratio. This is less apparent on WOLED panels.

We prefer the overall design and appearance of Asus’ PG32UCDM model if we’re honest, and that screen offers a blur reduction BFI feature too which is missing here. Dolby Vision HDR is also not featured on this screen, although it’s very hard to justify the additional cost of any alternatives in North America right now.

Summary

The MPG 321URX provides an excellent spec and range of features, backed by some impressive performance and an aggressive price point. You can watch our full video review for lots more information too.

Where to Buy

Buy the MSI MPG 321URX on:

Pros

  • Excellent combination of 4K resolution and 240Hz
  • High pixel density resolves any lingering text clarity concerns
  • Very competitively priced 32″ 4K OLED option in N America currently

Cons

  • ELMB / BFI blur reduction not included on this model
  • QD-OLED panel not as well suited to brighter room conditions
  • No Dolby Vision HDR support

We’re going to have to cheat for this 32″ category and provide you with two recommendations, as the pricing of these new screens varies so much by region, it affects our recommendation!

If you’re in Europe, then our pick of the bunch so far is the Dell Alienware AW3225QF we reviewed recently. It’s built around a Samsung QD-OLED panel, offering a combination of 4K (3840 x 2160) resolution and 240Hz refresh rate – a dream spec for many people. Dell’s model is the only one in this size that has a curve, although it’s pretty subtle at only 1700R. This is the first time we’ve seen a higher pixel density as well, offering very good text rendering and clarity, and sharp crisp images for work and play. In Europe this screen is competitively priced, around £300 – 350 GBP less than competing models released so far from MSI and Asus at the time of writing in this region!

As ever the 240Hz refresh rate delivers excellent motion clarity and gaming experience, with the high pixel density providing a sharp, detailed and crisp image. Console support is also excellent on this screen. HDR provides a nice accurate, bright and vivid experience thanks to the QD-OLED panel. Dell have added a few extras as well including a uniform brightness operation in SDR mode, PiP/PbP modes, Dolby Vision HDR and even eARC sound support over HDMI. Being a QD-OLED panel this model also has the standard semi-glossy coating finish, looking nice and clear and clean. Text clarity is also very good thanks to the third gen QD-OLED panel and the high resolution.

Things to keep in mind

The curve of this model won’t be to everyone’s liking and there are flat alternatives available. We didn’t find it too bad at all, it’s pretty subtle and arguably more comfortable for general usage, gaming and multimedia. Dell’s model doesn’t have USB type-C connectivity or a KVM switch, nor does it have BFI/blur reduction, so consider whether any of those are useful to you.

The semi-glossy coating handles reflections fairly well, better than a fully glossy coating at least, but doesn’t diffuse light sources as well so may not be as well suited to brightly lit rooms or locations where you have windows or lights facing the panel as a WOLED panel might be.

Where to Buy

Buy the Dell Alienware AW3225QF on:

Pros

  • Excellent combination of 4K resolution and 240Hz
  • Dolby Vision HDR and eARC sound are currently unique to this model
  • Most competitively priced 32″ 4K OLED option in Europe right now

Cons

  • Missing some extra features like USB-C and KVM switch
  • QD-OLED panel not as well suited to brighter room conditions

34″ ultrawide – MSI MAG 341CQP

If you want something a bit bigger, then there’s loads of different choices in the 34” ultrawide market. Our long-standing pick in this space was the Dell Alienware AW3423DWF, although that’s not been surpassed by the recently launched MSI MAG 341CQP monitor. It uses the same Samsung QD-OLED technology panel as the other 175Hz refresh rate models you can find on the market, but they’ve updated the feature set and specs nicely in line with their other 2024 monitors. It’s got a lot of new features that aren’t present on older models like the Dell.

Key Specs

SpecThis screen
Size:34″ ultrawide
Aspect Ratio:21:9
Format:1800R curvature
Technology:QD-OLED
Resolution:3440 x 1440
Refresh Rate:175Hz

Things we like

The ultrawide format provides more desktop space for general and office uses than the 27″ models, and is also a popular choice for a lot of modern games that support ultrawide aspect ratios. There’s a load of added modern features like a USB type-C connection, KVM switch, PiP/PbP modes, a fan-less design and a great selection of OLED Care features. This sets it apart from many other 34″ ultrawide monitors built around this same Samsung Display QD-OLED panel with 175Hz. We prefer this QD-OLED panel to the alternative, competing WOLED panel which might have a higher refresh rate of 240Hz, but has an aggressive 800R curvature which we feel is too much in many situations.

Things to keep in mind

Being a QD-OLED panel, the sub-pixel layout and panel coating are different to the WOLED monitors on the market. This uses a first generation QD-OLED panel and the text clarity is not as good as the second generation panels so you might see a bit more fringing in office applications. We expect to see some newer 34″ QD-OLED monitors using a newer 240Hz panel later this year, at which point this recommendation may well change.

The panel coating remains the same between gen 1 and 2, and is the same across the different QD-OLED panels available. This is one of the main differences compared to the WOLED models. The coating is what we would call a “semi glossy”, looking cleaner and clearer than the quite grainy WOLED matte coating. It handles reflections fairly well, better than a fully glossy coating at least, but doesn’t diffuse light sources as well so may not be as well suited to brightly lit rooms or locations where you have windows or lights facing the panel. The other drawback of QD-OLED panels is that in brighter rooms, the lack of a polarizer on the panel and the use of a Quantum Dot layer can cause blacks to look more greyish, reducing perceived contrast ratio. This is less apparent on WOLED panels.

Summary

The MAG 341CQP is an excellent choice if you want a larger ultrawide format screen and can be found at an attractive price point too. You can watch our full detailed review for lots more information too.

Where to Buy

Buy the MSI MAG 341CQP on:

Pros

  • Larger screen size and ultrawide format
  • Cleaner and clearer text than WOLED panels with semi-glossy coating
  • Modern feature set and extras

Cons

  • QD-OLED panel causes reduced contrast in brighter room conditions
  • 175Hz refresh rate is not as fast and clear as 240Hz OLED displays

45″ ultrawide – Corsair Xeneon Flex 45WQHD240

Corsair Xeneon Flex 45WQHD240 photo

If you want something a even bigger for added immersion in gaming and movies, then there are a few 45″ ultrawide models available. Our favourite is the Corsair Xeneon Flex 45WQHD240 as it provides something unique – a bendable format. This allows you to manually bend the screen anywhere from flat to an 800R curvature, giving you the flexibility to use the screen in a range of different situations. If you want a flat screen to ensure straight lines and no distortion for things like spreadsheets or office work, or perhaps even for some games like FIFA where the lines of the pitch needs to look straight, then you can use it in flat mode. If you want to increase the feeling or immersion and have a more wrap-around screen for something like a racing game or RTS, you can bend the screen instead. This might sound like a gimmick, but it’s actually very useful in real use. This model has a 3440 x 1440 resolution, 240Hz refresh rate and adaptive-sync VRR support.

Key Specs

SpecThis screen
Size:45″ ultrawide
Aspect Ratio:21:9
Format:Flat to Curved 800R (bendable)
Technology:WOLED
Resolution:3440 x 1440
Refresh Rate:240Hz

Things we like

Like the 27″ models, this 45″ screen has a 240Hz refresh rate which is currently the fastest offered in the OLED market, delivering excellent motion clarity and a high frame rate support. The larger screen size and ultrawide format is great for gaming and video immersion and makes the screen better suited to multimedia viewing, especially from a more distant viewing position (e.g. console gaming or watching a movie). The ability to bend the screen and choose between flat and curved is a nice feature too.

Things to keep in mind

Because the screen still only has the same 3440 x 1440 resolution as the 34″ ultrawide models, the text clarity is not as good and it’s not as well suited to general and office type work. Fine for occasional use, but the text size is quite large, and the lower pixel density exacerbates the text clarity issues caused by the sub-pixel structure of its WOLED panel. This panel has the same coating as the 27″ models, which is a matte finish and fairly grainy, certainly more so than the QD-OLED panel options. The brightness is also fairly limited when using the uniform brightness mode in SDR, so something else to keep in mind.

Summary

The Corsair Xeneon Flex 45WQHD240 provides a nice large screen and excellent gaming experience, along with a unique bendable format to give you a lot of viewing flexibility. You can read our full detailed review for lots more information too.

Cons

  • Low pixel density so not as good for text of office work
  • WOLED panel leads to some text fringing and has grainy appearance
  • Low brightness in SDR when using uniform brightness mode


49″ ultrawide – Samsung Odyssey OLED G95SC

Samsung Odyssey OLED G95SC photo

Now we’re getting in to the really large monitor sizes. There’s only a few 49″ super ultrawide model currently available, so this was an easier category to select our favourite from. Right now, the Samsung Odyssey OLED G95SC is a very good OLED screen if you want a very large format like this. It’s 49″ size and 5120 x 1440 resolution make is the equivalent of dual 1440p 27″ monitors basically, giving you a great alternative to multi-monitor setups. This screen has a fairly subtle 1800R curvature by Samsung’s standards, giving a nice balance on a screen this size. It also has a 240Hz refresh rate like the 27″ and 45″ models which is faster than some competing options in this size, which only offer 144Hz. This is backed as usual by adaptive-sync for variable refresh rates.

Key Specs

SpecThis screen
Size:49″ ultrawide
Aspect Ratio:21:9
Format:1800R curved
Technology:QD-OLED
Resolution:5120 x 1440
Refresh Rate:240Hz

Things we like

Like the 27″ and 45″ models, this 49″ screen has a 240Hz refresh rate, delivering excellent motion clarity and a high frame rate support. The large and very wide screen size are great for certain games where this aspect ratio is supported, as well as for multi-tasking and split screen work. We felt the subtle curve was appropriate on a screen this size and not too aggressive. Being a QD-OLED panel (like the 34″ ultrawide models) the panel coating is semi-glossy, giving a clean and clear picture and avoiding the grainy appearance that the WOLED models have. This is also a second generation QD-OLED panel which has improved pixel shape and pixel fill compared with the 34″ models (which are first generation), leading to some improvements in text clarity and sharpness which is great news.

Things to keep in mind

The semi-glossy coating handles reflections fairly well, better than a fully glossy coating at least, but doesn’t diffuse light sources as well so may not be as well suited to brightly lit rooms or locations where you have windows or lights facing the panel as a WOLED panel might be. The other drawback of QD-OLED panels is that in brighter rooms, the lack of a polarizer on the panel and the use of a Quantum Dot layer can cause blacks to look more greyish, reducing perceived contrast ratio. This is less apparent on WOLED panels.

We found the Tizen OS software and menus on this screen to be a bit difficult to use, with lots of weird settings and user experience decisions. Once you get things like HDR mode set up properly and get used to the software, it’s not too bad, but the initial experience is a bit frustrating in places.

Summary

The Samsung Odyssey OLED G95SC is a great option for very large ultrawide requirements, with some impressive performance once you get past the initial setup and annoyances with the software. You can read our full detailed review for lots more information too.

42″ large format – Asus ROG Swift PG42UQ

Asus ROG Swift PG42UQ photo

Last up is what we would consider to be the maximum size useable as a desktop monitor, and while there are some 48″ OLED screens available that are designed as monitors, we think 42″ is definitely more comfortable. Make sure you have the space for the screen of course. Our pick of the bunch here is the Asus ROG Swift PG42UQ, offering a 42″ WOLED panel, 4K resolution, 138Hz refresh rate and designed specifically as a monitor and not a TV like some 42″ OLED screens are. As such it includes DisplayPort connectivity, standby mode and USB hub data ports for example.

Key Specs

SpecThis screen
Size:42″
Aspect Ratio:16:9
Format:Flat
Technology:WOLED
Resolution:3840 x 2160 “4K”
Refresh Rate:138Hz

Things we like

One of the key use cases for this screen is a cross-over between a desktop monitor and a TV. It’s large size makes it a great choice if you want a screen for console gaming, or when sitting further away from the screen for any of your content. It’s a good choice for movies and video as well. It also has a 3840 x 2160 “4K” resolution making it very well suited to high resolution gaming, including from modern games consoles like the Xbox Series X and PS5. It has some HDMI 2.1 ports to handle 4K 120Hz from those consoles too. Thanks to the monitor-focused design it has a lower input lag than some other 42″ OLED screens on the market, and features like DisplayPort and standby mode make it easier to use as a desktop monitor than some of the competition.

Things to keep in mind

Being a 4K resolution screen and using a panel originally designed for the TV market, this 42″ OLED has a much lower refresh rate than the smaller monitors listed in this article. The panels native 120Hz is boosted slightly to 138Hz via an overclocking mode but it won’t offer you the same level of motion clarity or frame rate support as the 175Hz – 240Hz models in smaller sizes. The 4K resolution delivers a reasonable text size, but the pixel density isn’t quite as high as the 27″, 34″ and 49″ models listed here.

Because it was designed as a desktop monitor it does lack the TV-like features that some other 42″ OLED screens have, so you won’t find built in smart TV apps, a tuner or support for Dolby Vision or HLG formats for HDR. Also keep in mind that due to the large size, the stand offers very limited adjustment so you may want to consider arm/wall-mounting it instead.

Summary

If you want a really large screen, perhaps as a single display you can use for your PC and also as a TV, then this 42″ OLED would be a good option. You can read our full detailed review for lots more information too.
