Xiaomi is now trying to enter the gaming monitor market, with their first entry of the Mi Surface Monitor. While Xiaomi made their name is smartphones, TVs and speakers, their next market to go into is the gaming monitor market!
The Mi Surface is Xiaomi's attempt to bring itself into the gaming monitor market!
Their newest product has just been announced a 34 - inch, 144Hz monitor, which has some amazing specs to it, a resolution of 3440 x 1440, and able to make use of AMD's FreeSync. With the monitor's beefy specs it has the potential to become a huge monitor in the gaming community, especially if priced competitively. The low response time of 4ms GTG enables a very good gaming experience.
The design of the Mi Surface itself is very minimalistic with very little bezels around the edges making you more immersed in either your movie or game, the curvature of the monitor is not harsh enough to distract you from your game, but not subtle enough to be ignored, the curvature of the monitor is right around 1500R. This leads to the monitor to be an amazing value, being 144Hz, Curved, and 1440p.
Xiaomi is also offering a smaller monitor, called the Xiaomi Monitor. The Xiaomi Monitor is an only 23.8-inch monitor, that has the resolution 1080p.
