03/28/2023 at 08:36 by Jusuf Hatic – MSI is expanding its display portfolio with the MAG401QR monitor, which will be launched with a diagonal of 40 inches and KVM switch functionality.
Hardware manufacturer MSI has introduced a new display, the MAG401QR, which is primarily aimed at PC gamers. The new monitor should be priced at 500 US dollars, but it is still unclear whether the RRP will also be applied in Germany. The company did not name a release date either in the announcement or on the associated shop page, but at least there are first details on the specific technical data.

True to its name, the MSI MAG401QR is designed as a 40-inch monitor, which, however, does not have any curvature and works as a regular flat screen. The manufacturer uses IPS for the panel, while the resolution is 3440×1440 pixels. The refresh rate is said to be up to 155 Hertz, and the manufacturer specifies a response time of 1 ms. In addition, Adaptive Sync to avoid tearing and a black image stabilizer are integrated, as well as a blue light filter and flicker-free backlight on board.
With regard to the color spaces, MSI promises 118 percent coverage of the sRGB color space with the MAG401QR, while DCI-P3 and Adobe RGB should be covered with 84 and 90 percent, respectively. The monitor also includes DisplayHDR 400 certification. On the connection side, the display has two HDMI 2.0b ports, a DisplayPort 1.4 connection and a USB 2.0 hub. There is also a headphone output and a USB-C port with DisplayPort alternate mode.
In addition to the usual VESA compatibility (100 x 100 mm) for mounting on a wall or a corresponding bracket, the MSI MAG401QR includes a KVM switch function. The feature allows users to reliably control multiple computers and their associated peripherals from a single module, which can then be used to switch back and forth between the respective main systems via the OSD menu.
