MSI gaming monitor functions perfectly after blocking a bullet

As reported by PC Gamer, gamer and streamer Eric Gan was rudely woken during the morning of March 4 by loud noises in his apartment.

Gan and his friend later discovered the source of the sounds: bullets, which were fired from somebody on the street toward the pair's dwelling. Five shots entered Gan's room (as well as his friend's) through the windows and walls.

Thankfully, nobody was hurt. Most of the bullets flew harmlessly toward the ceiling and walls.

However, one bullet struck the back of Gan's previously-mentioned MSI Optix G27C2 gaming monitor. Amazingly, not only does the monitor still function perfectly, but the bullet didn't even penetrate it fully.

MSI certainly wasn't going to waste the opportunity to accrue some positive PR. In a gesture of goodwill, the company reached out to Gan privately to offer him a replacement monitor and other MSI-related "swag."

Regarding the shooting itself, Gan has reportedly been assured by police that the incident was random, and the result of a party that was happening across the street. Gan and his roommate were not being targeted.

What I find amazing is that the house owners gave a crap about the stupid monitor. So if some of them got killed along the way, I guess MSI wouldn't get a chance to brag about the monitor quality? How dumb is that?

Speaking of the proverbial elephant in the room...

Did anyone notice, razer logo on msi display? anyway it's just "flesh-wound" for the monitor, as in the rear of usually sits a wide metal frame. so the 4 screws on the bracket are able to hold the weight of the entire monitor.

This is America. It should be apparent that money comes before lives.

So according to you, one cannot value lives unless they give up all their money?

I think you may have made some poor decisions in life if you find your statement even remotely correct.
