What of these 2 is the better deal?


Hello! I was debating on which monitor to get. 

The first one I'm looking at is a LG monitor with 1440p 144hz 27" ips  monitor 


The second one is a msi monitor thst has the same specs as the LG,  flat(despite the pictures apparently) and 165hz 


They both seem to have the same specs but the msi has more hz and 30 dollars less? It it a software/reliability problem? If not is the msi known for worse panels or do they come from the same manufacturer like Samsung?is there a difference in Vesa mounting or io?I'm in the final process of looking for peripherals so any info on the price difference or reliability would be much appreciated. Thank you!
