sync

Reviews around sync (4.51 of 5)

  • Excellent quality, no dead pixels, G-sync works as advertised
  • A few competitors in this class already offer cheaper solutions with HDR, G-SYNC and strong refresh rates (LG, ASUS)
  • Smooth G-Sync and great refresh rate, color and picture look amazing
  • Additionally G-Sync also felt much more smooth and responsive than freesync.
  • It is a little expensive but the g-sync and quality is worth it IMHO.

gaming

Reviews around gaming (4.49 of 5)

  • Smooth G-Sync and great refresh rate, color and picture look amazing
  • I'm left wondering if I should have bought a cheaper gaming monitor and kept using my old Dell for photos.
  • Smooth G-Sync and great refresh rate, color and picture look amazing
  • The only negatives I haveWith some brief google searching, it appears to be a known issue among AW users with the AW software to adjust lighting via the desktop application
  • I'm not a competitive gamer, but the G-SYNC implementation and 120 Hz refresh rate make for a smooth gaming experience.- The curve is good for immersive FPS gaming.- Out of the box color

picture

Reviews around picture (4.26 of 5)

  • Picture is great, nice and smooth and no dead/stuck pixels
  • I upgraded from Dell's 32" curved gaming screen, and this is better in every way: the picture is sharper, the contrast is better, nVidia G-Sync works
  • All I can say is the picture is so clear and crisp and smooth at near 120 fps
  • n’t go wrong with it
  • This is what allows you to see the same great picture from every angle.

display

Reviews around display (4.21 of 5)

  • The built in cable managment is awesome, the display is crisp and beautiful, and the viewing angels are amazing
  • This Alienware checks all the boxes and is an incredible display
  • It's a very bright display has to be around 450 nits Max brightness
  • Very good display for gaming, business & content creation.
  • But it lacks HDMI 2.1 or 2.0 and the backlight glow is horrible, no support form Dell with applciations like Display Manager which is not handy for professional use

experience

Reviews around experience (3.89 of 5)

  • The following calibrations are a compromise to get a great gaming experience even in a well lit room but still have an acceptable color accuracy
  • I'm glad I did, because the experience is incomparable to a typical 16:9 viewing ratio
  • The only negatives I haveWith some brief google searching, it appears to be a known issue among AW users with the AW software to adjust lighting via the desktop application
  • It is the nicest screen and immersive experience I have ever had and it serves as an ideal workstation - haven't gotten to play games on it
  • Nvidia video cards recently allowed G-Sync functionality on all monitors, but if the monitor isn't fast enough, you'll get a poor experience.

Reviews around build (3.86 of 5)

  • The only negatives I haveWith some brief google searching, it appears to be a known issue among AW users with the AW software to adjust lighting via the desktop application
  • This monitor is amazing, the build is very solid and the image and color gamut is very, very impressive

  • Comments 1 month after purchase:Excellent build quality, minimal bezels
  • If you manage to get an Alienware that has no IPS glow, go for it, for I will miss the build of that monitor

stand

Reviews around stand (3.71 of 5)

  • I purchased this monitor recently and I really like the design and solid stand
  • The stand would be amazing if you could pull it out from the base but unfortunately not.
  • n’t go wrong with it
  • Monitor works great the stand came with a broken power pin so the lighting on the stand doesn’t work
  • Only major complaint is how bulky the stand is

screen

Reviews around screen (3.51 of 5)

  • The most common complaints were about "light bleed" (which happens when the back light of an IPS panel "bleeds" out from the bezel of the screen while the screen is dark)
  • As my back grounds changed the darker the screen the more prominent the lines, the lighter same lines
  • Love how it helps productivity and just an amazing screen for gaming
  • 120 vs. 75 in a game that can push out that frame rate is an extremely subtle difference from what I've seen, and most games I play are full screen with all of the graphics settings pegged at maximum, and even the 1080Ti struggles to maintain 60 fps in a game like ESO with those settings
  • This screen is one of the best screens that i have ever used!!!!

thing

Reviews around thing (3.29 of 5)

  • If you can afford this thing, you won't be disappointed.
  • I also loved the USB availability - this thing has, like, six USB ports that you can daisychain off one upstream USB plugged into the computer - love it
  • It might take some time to adjust your eyes but man does this thing look beautiful
  • At that point, I realized that it wasn't just the saturation that was making things look crazy, there was also a significant red hue that was very unnatural looking
  • Smooth G-Sync and great refresh rate, color and picture look amazing

tear

Reviews around tear (1.80 of 5)

  • n’t go wrong with it
  • HORRIBLE screen tearing
  • Overall I am happy with the AW3420DW for the significantly better build quality, as well as having a dedicated G-SYNC module for the more graphically intensive games I play where frame rate can fluctuate more.
  • Initially I noticed terrible screen tearing when playing Control and Resident Evil 2 at max setting but this is because the monitor comes set at 60hz refresh rate out of the box
  • Jedi Fallen order with my previous 4K monitor with no G-sync, and saw irritating frame tearing a lot.

issue

Reviews around issue (1.76 of 5)

  • I had no dead pixel issues, and the brightness was more than adequate in my somewhat light room.
  • I didn't want to take the chance of dead pixels or other issues
  • For the first several days the monitor worked seamlessly, no issues great graphics
  • I think I'll live with the Dell until these monitor companies finally solve some unreasonable existing tech issues
  • My amazon box came in pretty rough, but the monitor was very well protected in the Alienware packaging/foam, no dead pixels or major issues at all

room

Reviews around room (1.44 of 5)

  • The blacklight bleed on the all corners of the monitors are noticeable if you're in a very dark room but it really isn't bad
  • IPS bleed in corners is faint and in a smaller area than other monitors I've owned and is only noticeable for a completely black screen in a dark room
  • Given that this is an IPS panel, there is some backlight bleed, but I only notice it in a completely dark room
  • The following calibrations are a compromise to get a great gaming experience even in a well lit room but still have an acceptable color accuracy
  • The brightness is more than sufficient for my use in a dark family room
