Hello,
I was hoping some of the smart people of Tom's Hardware could help me choose/find the differences between these 2 curved monitors.

MSI Optix 27" FHD 165Hz 4ms GTG Curved VA LCD FreeSync Gaming Monitor (MAG270CR)

$269.99 CAD, $95 off

AOC 27" FHD 165Hz 1ms GTG Curved VA LED FreeSync Gaming Monitor (C27G2)
https://www.bestbuy.ca/en-ca/product/aoc-27-fhd-165hz-1ms-gtg-curved-va-led-freesync-gaming-monitor-c27g2-black-red/14777942
$269.99 CAD, $65 off


Differences I've found
AOC LED panel vs MSI LCD
MSI 1ms vs AOC 4ms response time
Slightly higher dynamic contrast for MSI
AOC is height adjustable

Is AOC the clear choice here due to the LED panel?
Am I really gonna be able to tell the difference between response times?
What's your opinion on the better option between these 2?


Uses

Lecture/video viewing
Light Fps Gaming (csgo/valorant/warzone)
Little video/photo editing

PC
RX 580 8Gb
16 Gb Ram
AMD Fx-8350 (8 core, 4GHz)
Considering a triple monitor setup with my 2 current 60Hz 23-inch monitors

https://www.geekextreme.com/gadgets/lcd-vs-led-one-go-gaming-monitor-20047/ Here is a good article on difference between lcd and led monitors panels. Personally I would go with the 1 ms panel, but 1 ms -4ms imperceptible really.
