Product Overview 34-inch gaming monitor featuring a curved 1900R IPS display with NVIDIA® G-Sync™, wide viewing angles and incredible resolution. Lose yourself in every game.

Iconic Design Is in Our Blood
Looks that kill: A premium, polished silver finish and ultramodern design reflect our commitment to sophisticated appearance, unparalleled quality and gargantuan gaming.

We focused on the details so you can focus on the screen: Your monitor features an ultrathin 3-sided bezel for an expansive 34-inch screen space. Our unique step-venting details help dissipate heat and maximize performance. And we added the unearthly glow of Triad lighting to complete the monitor that’s better looking than it has to be.

Curve your enthusiasm: Completely immerse yourself with a sweeping, 1900R curved infinity display that takes you deeper into the game and a 21:9 aspect ratio that makes every vantage point epic. The curved screen maximizes your field of vision, reducing eye movement, so you can stay comfortably focused on the game longer.

The Competition Can Eat Your Dust

Expand your horizons: In-plane switching panels mean a wide 178°/178° viewing angle from any vantage point and incredibly vivid, detailed sRGB99% colour reproduction from wherever you are in the room.

Get real: A 3440 X 1440 WQHD resolution display delivers sharp, crystal-clear graphics with 3.68 million pixels—1.77 times more detail than a Full HD display. So you’ll see every blade of grass, every glint of steel, every drop of sweat more vividly, intensely and richly than ever before.

Synched up and ready to roll: NVIDIA® G-SYNC™ technology displays full frames only when the monitor is ready to display them. This means your screen frames load so fast, you can say goodbye to distortions—like tearing and artefacts—and get used to smooth, vibrant images.

By the time this sentence is over: Refresh rates so fast you won’t have time to worry about lag. Bring on even faster responsiveness with 100Hz native [or up to 120Hz overclocked] refresh rates and 4ms response times to max out on the highest, fastest level gameplay that looks and feels super smooth.

Your Central Battle System.

Designed to Beat the Competition

Every Seat Is the Best Seat in The House
The new swivel-hinge combo design supports tilt, swivel and height-adjustability so wherever you feel most comfortable, you’ll still have the best possible vantage point. It’s ultimate comfort for endless gameplay.

Choosing a monitor is not an easy decision to make, and not just because of the large number of variations in resolution, refresh rates, sizes and connectivity options. There are also varying panel technologies used to form each display that need to be considered. These panel technologies can be grouped into three broad categories which cover the vast majority of monitors sold in the consumer market.

34.1" Alienware AW3418DW Ultra Wide Curved G-SYNC Monitor, IPS, 3440x1440, 120Hz, 21:9, 4ms, 300cd/m², DP1.2/ HDMI 1.4 is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Out of this world picture quality and in game performance.... I purchased Alienware to replace my 4 years old 1080p 144Mhz monitor. I was originally planning on getting 35inch Asus HDR but lack of solid release date and unknown price made me change my mind. I have also found out that Asus will be on VA panel so viewing angles might be an issue and for such a big monitor with curve this potentially could be a problem. This is my first IPS panel so coming of TN panel I was little worried about infamous IPS glow. This is first time I experience IPS glow so have nothing to compare Alienware glow against but honestly I think that I have very little IPS glow. I have some at the left and right bottom corner. Left side has some glow.(about 0.7mm), right side is affected by 0.4mm are of IPS bleed. Please bear in mind that monitor's is not calibrated well out of the box. I really encourage everyone to download and install ICC profile from TFT central. Please also reduce the brightness. I noticed that reducing brightness to 37 reduced IPS glow on the right side to about 0.25mm and I achieved similar reduction on the left side corner. TFT ICC profile and recommended calibration improved viewing experience and helped to bring this 1440p gorgeous screen to its full glory. Panel's colour reproduction is amazing and panel's uniformity is great. No dead pixels etc. Monitor's OSD is very intuitive and packed with features. It is easy to navigate and offers quick & easy access to monitor's presets. You can customize brightness and contrast for each preset which is really helpful as I found brightness to be too high on all pre sets. Your adjustments to the profiles are saved. OSD also lets you to configure LED lighting effects. LED lights are very subtle but add to the beautifully striking design of this monitor. Monitor's native refresh rate is 100Mhz and can easily be overclocked to 120Mhz. I am running this monitor in full OC mode and have not come across any major issues. Screen flickered once or twice (due to panel being OCd) but it happened to me only few times and performance will vary and will depend on your PC GPU etc so you might not have any flickering at all. I cant really notice the difference between 144Mhz 1080p panel and 100-120 Mhz 1440p panel. If anything I find GSYNC to be great piece of technology and having to experience it for the first time I am truly amazed how much it helps to improve overall gaming experience. I feel that even if games runs slower they feel smoother than they did on 144 Mhz monitor. It is truly amazing. Contrast ration is lower than advertised but blacks are really good anyway so I do not find this to be an issue really. I believe that unless you work with lots of dark content this will not be a problem for you. Games look superb, the colours are beatiful and level of details is astonishing. I tested monitor's performance in few games and just WOW. I could see individual rain drops on Adam Jensen's armour. Particle effects, textures and colours never looked so good in SW Battlefront II. Battlefield 1 looks stunning. IPS colour reproduction rules ! Service from Scan was great as always. Thank you ! What I like about this monitor: Aggressive, amazing curve which is very immersive and pulls you more into the game Gorgeous 1440p screen Design and build quality of this monitor GSYNC technology and refresh rate What I do not like: lower than expected contrast ratio price
