Alienware 34 Curved Gaming Monitor (AW3420DW) sports a lusty retail price of $1,519.99. The curved 34-inch screen features only a thin black band running around its perimeter. Out of the box, the monitor easily covers 100% of the sRGB gamut. The AlienFX lighting system has four different light zones.

The Dell Alienware AW3420DW is an impressive ultrawide gaming monitor with a stylish design and native G-SYNC support. With a 1440p resolution, images are delivered with great detail, but the monitor's low contrast ratio and sub-par black uniformity make it hard to recommend for dark room viewing. The LG has a higher refresh rate, a significantly higher peak brightness, as well as much better viewing angles. The Acer has a smaller screen and a 16:9 aspect ratio, but a much sharper 4k resolution.

Sentiment Score[*] 84%
Reviewers from Techradar have found the following[***]:
The Alienware AW3420DW is a sign that Ultrawide monitors are starting to hit the mainstream. It keeps the 34-inch display size, along with the 21:9 3,440 x 1,440 resolution. It also brings with it attractive RGB lighting and easy-to-use menus. However, this gaming monitor does cost $1,499 (about £1,160, AU$2,200)
