PAX AUS 2018: MSI bring their ESL-approved 244Hz Oculux gaming monitor to Australia

Rounding out their usual offering of gaming laptops and giveaways, MSI's booth at this year's PAX Australia also saw the company show off its new 244Hz Oculux gaming monitor.

First shown at this year's Computex, the gaming monitor pairs up a top-notch spec-sheet with sharp looks and G-Sync support.

The MSI Oculux features a 244Hz refresh rate, 0.5ms response time, 300 nits of brightness and support for Nvidia's G-Sync display tech.

The other cool detail here is that MSI told us that the Oculux has been adopted by the ESL as the organisation's official gaming monitor in 2019 for ESL One events.

The only catch here is that the price and the fact that it's only available in a single sizing of 24.5-inches - which may limit its appeal for those who prefer a larger display.

The MSI Oculux NXG251 gaming monitor will be available from December (via MSI's usual partners) at an expected retail price of $750.

Disclosure - MSI covered the cost of our flights and accommodation for PAX Australia 2018.

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

This smart laptop was enjoyable to use and great to work on – creating content was super simple.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries


As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
