The brand new and very competitively priced 32” 4K 240Hz OLED monitor from MSI. Offering an extremely impressive spec and set of features, at an attractive price point. This is a video format review covering all our usual testing and analysis.

1) Bug with sRGB / Adobe RGB / Display P3 modes when switching between SDR and HDR modes – We’ve checked and confirmed that at the moment the MSI MPG 321URX has a bug where if you are using any of the three colour space emulation modes (via the “pro mode” setting) during SDR, this remains active when you enable Windows HDR. To get full gamut for HDR you’d have to switch back to another pro mode (like “user”) otherwise you have unnecessary clamping of colours even for HDR source content which you don’t want. This is particularly problematic if you’d been using the sRGB mode in SDR.

Really this pro mode should either be locked and defaulted back to one of the full wide gamut modes when HDR is operational, or the setting for pro mode should be independent between SDR and HDR modes, allowing the user to select sRGB perhaps when in SDR, but one of the other modes (e.g. “user”) when they are using HDR, with the screen remembering which one was active when you switch. We’ve reported this bug back to MSI for investigation.

2) The MPG 321URX from this review DOES support firmware updates. The lower spec version of this screen, the MAG 321UPX does not

3) The screen has a few different scaling options in the menu. There’s ‘auto’, 4:3, 16:9, 16:10 and 1:1 modes. You can use the 1:1 mode if you want to input a lower resolution (e.g. 1080p) and have a smaller simulated screen size, with black borders around the sides but with 1:1 pixel mapping. There’s no options to move the position of the active area, it’s always central on the screen. You cannot control the screen size simulation though like you can on the Asus PG32UCDM where modes for 24.5″ and 27″ are available. The size of the visible area when using the 1:1 mode is entirely dictated by the resolution you set. for instance a 1920 x 1080 res ends up around 15.75″ diagonal in size on the MSI.

4) The “game mode” menu just has various modes for different genres where the colour vibrancy and sharpness have been artificially enhanced. Experiment with those if you want for different games, but they will be less “accurate”. They are just additional presets like those in the “pro mode” menu, they could have easily been in the same section but have instead been split out. Whichever mode you activate last, from either section, will be the one that is active on the monitor.
