General info

1.supports total tilt

A swivel stand allows you to adjust the position of the display left or right, so you can position it to the desired angle.
3.Supports VESA mount
MSI Optix MAG301RF 30"
The VESA mount is a standard used by most manufacturers. A device that supports the VESA mount can be mounted on many different supports, from arms to wall mounts.
4.height

399.2mm

The height represents the vertical dimension of the product. We consider a smaller height better because it assures easy maneuverability.
We consider a thinner chassis better because it makes the product more compact and portable. Thinness is a feature highlighted by many manufacturers of mobile devices, but it is essential for a wide range of products.
6.width

709.4mm

The width represents the horizontal dimension of the product. We consider a smaller width better because it assures easy maneuverability.
7.weight

7.25kg

We consider a lower weight better because lighter devices are more comfortable to carry. A lower weight is also an advantage for home appliances, as it makes transportation easier, and for many other types of products.
Devices with height adjustment provide a full range of height possibilities resulting in maximum comfort.
9.supports portrait mode

Display

Response time is how long it takes for a display to change the state of pixels, in order to show new content. The less time it takes to respond, the less likely it is to blur fast-changing images.
2.resolution

2560 x 1080px

Resolution is an essential indicator of a screen's image quality, representing the maximum amount of pixels that can be shown on the screen. The resolution is given as a compound value, comprised of horizontal and vertical pixels.
The bigger the screen size is, the better the user experience.
Pixel density is a measurement of a screen's resolution, expressed as the number of pixels per inch (PPI) on the screen. A higher pixel density translates into more clarity and sharpness for the images rendered on the screen, thus improving the quality of the viewing experience.
5.has an IPS screen
MSI Optix MAG301RF 30"
IPS (In-Plane Switching) is a technology used for LCDs. It was designed to overcome the main limitations of conventional twisted nematic TFT displays: limited viewing angles and low-quality color reproduction. PLS (Plane-to-Line Switching) is a type of IPS screen developed by Samsung, with increased brightness and lower production costs.
6.has anti-glare coating
MSI Optix MAG301RF 30"
Anti-glare helps to reduce the external reflections of light coming from outside the display.
7.has an LED-backlit display
MSI Optix MAG301RF 30"
Uses LED backlighting, resulting in better image quality, more vibrant colors and richer blacks.
Horizontal viewing angle is the maximum angle at which a display can be viewed with acceptable visual performance.
The frequency at which the screen is refreshed. Higher frequency results in less flickering (less noise) and more natural movement representation in action-intense scenes.

Colors

A nit is a measurement of the light that a display emits, equal to one candela per square meter. Brighter displays ensure a screen's contents are easy to read, even in sunny conditions.
Contrast ratio is the visual distance between the lightest and the darkest colors that may be reproduced on the display. A high contrast ratio is desired, resulting in richer dark colors and more distinctive color gradation.
Number of colors that a display can accurately reproduce.
4.supports color calibration
MSI Optix MAG301RF 30"
A properly calibrated screen represents colors as they are and i.e. you can conduct a photo shoot while verifying your photos in real time. An internal sensor and/or colorimeter is usually included for trouble-free calibration.

MSI Optix MAG301RF 30"
An ambient light sensor adjusts the luminance of the device according to the amount of natural light that surrounds it.
