What customers say about "Key Specs"
Alienware AW3418DW Curved IPS Anti-Glare LED-Backlit Gaming Monitor
  • The 120Hz refresh rate with G-Sync is extremely smooth and performs very well on my RTX 2080.
  • I was using was a 144hz monitor and although a downgrade to the refresh rate to 120hz I really didn't notice any difference.
  • 100-120Hz is enough in most games with the settings on ultra settings.
  • Really immersive game experience, and the 3440x1440 is a game changer for work productivity.
  • 3440x1440 is pretty demanding and even a 2080TI will need some games knocking down in graphics quality if you want to maintain 100-120fps.
Alienware AW3418HW Full HD Gaming Monitor
  • Good balance of FPS with ~144Hz vs Resolution 1080p.
  • Great monitor. Playing all games on ultra at 144+ and it’s as smooth as butter.
  • Great product, great 32 inch monitor with great quality picture.
  • 2560 x 1080 resolution at 144hz (OC’s to 165hz) with G-Sync runs just about any game smoothly with no screen tearing.
  • Super picture quality very complete 2560 x 1080 resolution.

What customers say about "Display"
Alienware AW3418DW Curved IPS Anti-Glare LED-Backlit Gaming Monitor
  • The extra field of vision is very handy in the fps I've played and strategy games benefit from the extra space as well.
  • Picture quality is amazing and back light bleed for this type of panel isn't too bad.
  • The monitor being a IPS display was a great choice for this ultrawide, as I do digital art and game casually this display ticks my boxes.
  • The colour reproduction is great and the display is generally very vibrant.
  • Its a 21 : 9 display which means most films and YouTube videos aren't "fullscreen", its something to get used to having black bars on the side.
Alienware AW3418HW Full HD Gaming Monitor
  • The curved screen creates an immersive experience. Brilliant graphics.
  • Really impressed with this monitor. Colors are full and vibrant.
  • 21:9 ratio with curve is easy on the eyes, helps with a little longer game play.
  • 21:9 screens are close to perfect with no letterboxing.
  • Monitor 21:9 that becomes excellent even in the workplace. Possible to change the various presets on the game scene

What customers say about "Features"
Alienware AW3418DW Curved IPS Anti-Glare LED-Backlit Gaming Monitor
  • G-Sync, search it up, it is amazing game changer comes with this monitor.
  • G-sync works well, and you have only to install the monitor drivers or it won't work properly!
  • This beast is perfect. Games like a champ, displays movies in Native, and multitasks workloads effortlessly.
  • The RGB is good, can be configured or switched off completely.
  • The stand for the monitor is probably the only bad thing I can say about it, as it's very big and heavy.
Alienware AW3418HW Full HD Gaming Monitor
  • Best monitor I've used for gaming - Gsync works like a dream with nearly no setup.
  • Very well made and with g sync built in works amazing.
  • The build, the materials everything about this monitor just screams quality.
  • Love the G-sync and 144hz that I was waiting for to favor the fluidity (I play a lot at fps).
  • Unhappily there is no built-in speakers. Could be the best monitor.
