Design

One of the main things Alienware products are known for, are the sleek and eye-catching designs that embrace gamers

  • large monitor, and it will dominate pretty much any desk you put it on

  • The stand, made from metallic-coated plastic and featuring the Alienware logo in various places

  • The back of the monitor is silver, with another Alienware ‘alien head’ logo that lights up, and a few more LED strips

  • The back of the monitor is silver, with another Alienware ‘alien head’ logo that lights up, and a few more LED strips

  • Along the bottom-right side of the screen are the buttons that control the onscreen menu, along with the power button (which is lit up with an LED, which you can change the color of, like the other LED lights on the monitor).

  • DisplayPort 1.2, HDMI 1.4, a USB upstream port (for connecting to your PC), and two USB 3.0 ports, allowing the monitor to be used as a USB hub. There are another two USB 3.0 ports on the bottom of the screen.


Display and Performance

The Alienware AW3418DW boasts a 34-inch IPS panel with a 3440 x 1440 resolution, 120Hz refresh rate, and 4ms response time. This panel is a newer version of the LG module used in the Asus PG348Q which was a 60Hz native overclocked to 100Hz while this one is a 100Hz native overclocked to 120Hz. This new formula produces advantages by eliminating issues such as lower response times and missing the advertised speeds.

the Alienware AW3418DW is set too bright at around 210cd/m2, and accuracy is a bit off at Delta E 3.2, which is relatively average, but not ideal for color critical work. Gamma is also a bit off at Delta E 2.6 which is too dark for most uses, although some might like the noire effect it provides.

verdict

The Alienware AW3418DW is currently the fastest WQHD ultrawide out in the market regarding responsiveness and input lag, making it a top pick for serious gamers
