Review on Alienware Curved NVIDIA Edgelight Monitor 34", 3440X1440P, 120Hz, Ultra Wide, Anti Glare, ‎AW3420DW, IPS, LED by Jeff Auditore

Revainrating 5 out of 5

A quick replacement for a broken X34 has turned out to be a really good choice.

To update. I've been using it every day for several months now. zero problems. There seems to be a bit more back bleeding in the corners now, but unless you look for it you just don't see it. I have it on an Amazon Basics arm (RevainBasics Premium Single Monitor Stand - Motor Lift Mount, Aluminum - Black) https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00MIBN16O/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1I it I have had since 2018 and i am a beast Get is constantly moving and adapting to what I'm doing on the computer and there are no problems. I really like the Alienware display. As with any display, you need to customize it to your liking and I did that on day one and have played with all the features ever since and loved it. I don't use speakers. Good buy although I wouldn't replace my X34 with it if the X34 hadn't been destroyed. I had no plans to upgrade my display until the end of 2020. When changing the settings for the DCS, I was able to bring the corner of the keyboard to X34. pbmiphzx and turned it into a 30 inch screen. While I've tried to come to terms with it by picking up speed with the displays, it's now "smooth, smoky, fiery" fun, and that's true of the beautiful x34 I've had since May 2018. Now I'm back on the 2011 ASUS VE276Q Black 27 and once you get to widescreen there's no going back so after seeing what's coming I settled on Alienware. VERY HAPPY. This is a very good screen with deep blacks and really good colors compared to other 34 inch screens. Very little bleeding in the corners. Almost no top and little around the controls in the lower right corner. It took a while to set everything up and I was really impressed. I'm playing with low or off lights in the room and the brightness setting has been turned down a bit. I see people complaining about it, but for me it's perfect. Did a clean install with the GFroc drivers and set the frequency to 120Hz. Featuring EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti SC2 Hydro Copper for smooth graphics performance. It's mounted to a dual-display VESA mount that moves every day, and the extra cable hooks on the back do the job nicely without straining the connection points. Nice cover sheet to really hide them. I really love the lighting system on this one, but I've already gone through my RGB baby dance phase so it's all set to red for the most part, but you have some nice lighting options. Too bad I don't use the stand that came with it. It's insanely durable with lots of lightweight options. The little touch on/off indicator at the bottom of the screen is really helpful. The only change I would make to it is the touch brightness and color. The 2 USB ports at the bottom hold my Unifying USB receiver and my 3D printer's fat flash drive. Absent, but immediately on the spot when needed. There are more USB ports on the back, but all I have is the TrackIR5. Very little piano black, which is good as I leave fingerprints everywhere. The entire back is off-white, and to be honest, I don't really care. It doesn't get hot at all so I plan on wrapping the back in vinyl. The little alien in the corner is glowing, it's just nonsense, but nice. I had an Alienware M17 R2 in 2010 and never thought of it again after that time. Really good administration. Very easy to use and move. Standard power cord and additional cords included. As long as everything does its job for the next year, I can postpone updating my display for another year or so. Maybe get another used one to replace the ASUS I use as a second screen for game instructions and basic functions like messages and quick web searches. Not a fan of their prices. It came out around 1500 and sold for less than 1,000, which should have been appreciated from the start, but it's worth every penny of that 1,000 price tag in my opinion. I just missed a good sale, but what can you do if you don't buy a new display? Overall I think it's a fantastic choice for gaming and movies. There aren't any HDR options or sky-high highs, which I expected for an upgrade, but at the native 120Hz it tears it apart. A. Good packaging with Alienware box. It's Christmas fever, and this month Revane got a little confused with the packaging. You usually get tons of airbags and what not. All it had was a discarded piece of brown paper that did absolutely nothing in the slightly larger box it came in, so the Alienware box had a few dents on the corners, but the factory box was everything at his place. Prime usually works better. I once received a pack of cheap metal brushes that were packaged as the most fragile items ever shipped. If you're on the fence with this, go ahead and get it. Good price for the spec and looks great.

  • Amazing screen if you think about it just pull the trigger it's worth it.
  • Ghosting: This is when traces of motion or images remain on the display after an object has been moved or removed.
