Alienware’s QD-OLED gaming display is a fantastic visual presentation
While gaming monitors had the speed, low latency, and variable refresh rates to compete, gamers who wanted great HDR either had to settle for a little extra brightness and color or pay a lot. money for a poor local dimming experience. This curved 34-inch ultrawide gaming monitor, on the other hand, leaves a lot to be desired.
For the price, the Alienware AW3423DW has a good balance of specs. It targets the higher resolutions of 4K monitors (which still command a premium price) while offering a faster 175Hz refresh rate. When you combine that with G-Sync Ultimate’s wide variable refresh rate and powerful capabilities HDR, it’s simple to see how the $1,299 price tag stacks up against the competition.
The monitor doesn’t do much beyond its visual delivery, however. There are no built-in speakers, and the power it needs to deliver such high performance can rev up the fans inside.

But it goes even further with 95% coverage of the AdobeRGB color space and 99% of the DCI-P3 cinematic space. HDR videos and games look stunning, bringing together the full capabilities of the display for rich colors, dazzling brightness, and tons of depth.
It’s not an overly bright monitor, sitting around 240 nits, but it can burn out when displaying HDR highlights, which we measured at almost 1000 nits. Thanks to its OLED screen nature, its lack of backlighting means it can display those 1000-nit pixels alongside black pixels elsewhere on the screen, delivering a contrast ratio that blows away any panel competition. VA and LCD. out of water. This allows the monitor to be as plush in dark scenes as it is fiery in bright scenes – and that’s just the lighting
