I recently bought two MAG322CQR.
Image quality, interface and so on are superb.
However I have a terrible ghosting issue on both screen no matter the settings, refresh rate, freesync or not and so on.
The best settings I found was 165hz with Anti motion blur but to keep the image quality, I turn it off as there're a loss in brightness.
This is advertised as a 1ms response time monitor and the ghosting is a lot worst than by previous 10 years old IPS 5ms.
I don't think this is just because its a VA panel which I know by design is more prone to ghosting because I have some friends with other monitor with VA panel and this is a lot better on them.
I'm still hoping that there's a mysterious parameter somewhere that would solve it otherwise I really don't understand why this is advertised as a gaming monitor considering the result on that aspect.
I'm considering selling them to buy something else because that ghosting is driving me crazy.

I have firmware FW103 on both, is this the latest ? I did not find any download for an update that would help with this issue.

Yeah I have the same monitor and the 1ms is the MPRT (Moving picture response time) which is the worst thing to use when marketing a gaming monitor. GTG response time is what counts.
This monitor has the worst GTG response time ever. I beleave it's over 25ms gtg. I know because my xp-pen artist 24 pro display is 14ms and I used it to test the refresh rate between the two.
I really wish I never got the mag322cqr and I've been telling friends to stay away from it and any monitor that only spouts the 1ms mprt marketing gimmick. But since I'm stuck with it I'll use it for a while.

I've also been mauling over whether or not to RMA my monitor to update the firmware. Since your monitors FW is greater then mine, does your monitor back light turn off when it's in suspend mode?

I do not go in suspend mode really often but I test it few minutes ago to see and everything was normal, the screen was like like the idle is reached and the screen goes black. The power LED is on but there's nothing in the screen at all.
