    I own one of these and it is always compared to the Acer Predator X34P as it also has 120 Hz. I do not regret the price difference at all. Sure it's worth $200-$300 extra than some of the competition, but I am more than willing to pay slightly more for something that I'll likely keep for 6+ years.

    Plenty of discussion about this from previous sales:

    https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/438783

    It is an amazing monitor and I have never regretted the purchase.

    Main differences for me to the X34P are:

    Alienware has:
    - NO power brick - the X34P requires one
    - Preferred the very clean look of the Alienware over the X34P - did not like the Predator logo bottom centre of the screen, Alienware has no logo. Personal preference only.
    - LED lighting is located on the back of the monitor, which I preferred - X34P has them on the bottom edge of the screen
    - Stand more solid and stable, some reviews said the X34P could wobble slightly on desks
    - Dell warranty

    I think both are great choices, but the Alienware ticked all my boxes.

    Monitor comparisons below:

    MONITOR Signal Processing Response Time Average Lag
    Acer Predator X34 5.25ms 3.95ms 9.20ms
    Acer Predator X34P 5.20ms 3.95ms 8.00ms
    Asus ROG Swift PG348Q 5.30ms 3.90ms 9.20ms
    Alienware AW3418DW 0.35ms 3.45ms 3.80ms

    This is basically a condensed version of my previous posts about the AW3418DW - hope it helps if you are trying to decide.

      No in monitor gamma setting annoys me with the dell though

      I'm happy with mine too. I chose this over the x34P, no regrets. There is an Alienware logo on the bottom centre of the screen btw, but it's not too noticeable.

      Where is this from because it looks like bullshit.

      The screen also looks incredible from a design perspective - very happy with mine, which I've had for about a year now (my dad and sister own the X34, they're great but it's not the same level)

    •  

      Actually, My gaming monitor has 120 Hz, HDR (Dolby Vision and 10+).
      But no G-Sync or freesync and its 13ms lag at 1080p @ 120 Hz, 24ms @ 4k 60Hz.
      It is 55" 4K and it only cost me $1500.

      Your guess is right - Sony 55X9000F TV.

      I heard there is one or more Samsung TV support freesync now.

      •  

        Is that only at 1080p or can you input 4k @120Hz as well?
        What about custom resolutions like 3840x1600, or 3840x1440?

  •  

    for those looking previous deals https://www.ozbargain.com.au/product/alienware-aw3418dw
    not saying it's a bad deal but was just under $1400 last month.

    PAID $1600+ during the Christmas sale to replace my 7+ yrs old dell U2711.

    Amazing monitor, just love it!!

    •  

      I’m tempted to upgrade from my U2711 from yonks back as well. This one or the Acer… hmmm.

      Are the old U2711s worth anything on the second hand market? Not sure whether to donate or try and sell.

      •  

        I am still using my U2711 as a second monitor.

        not sure if anyone will buy as a second hand as its really big and heavy.

    •  

      144Hz, HDR and 1ms response time makes this look very good on paper.

      It is Free-sync instead of G-sync but it looks like it's G-sync compatible with the right drivers now. Must say it looks quite good.

      Only downside I can is you can only order from the Amazon US site. With shipping it comes to just shy of $1500.00 delivered.

      •  

        I've also been tossing up between these two monitors. I was reading a bit on the Reddit ultrawidemasterrace thread and the LG is their undisputed top choice for ultra wide 34" monitor.
        That being said, the only places I've found that deliver to aus are on Amazon, eBay (cheapest) and New egg and they're all around $1500USD delivered. With the risk of having to RMA at your own expense I'm not sure i can justify the extra $750AUD or so difference between the LG and the AW.
        Furthermore, currently I'm not sure even a 2080ti can get >120hz with max/near-max settings on many games anyway, so the extra 24hz is unlikely to be utilized even if it IS noticeable to the user.
        Can't comment on picture quality though but I've heard only glowing reviews from buyers of AW for gaming.

        •  

          Wow - forgot to change to US dollars. That makes it heaps more expensive. Add the dramas you face if the panel is defective in any way and… yeah nah.

    •  

      If you have no issue possibly getting a defective monitor and having to return it to Amazon/LG, then go with that.

    •  

      This is the cheapest I've found it online if you're looking around. Please let me know if you find it cheaper. Comes to about $1800 aud (i might have exaggerated the $750 aud difference in my earlier reply).

      That is the monitor we have all been waiting for. Looks like we are getting dumped old models before we see the new models.
      Acer has been putting their 75Hz 34" and 37.5" on sale lately, so there is probably a good chance we will see a good upgrade from them as well.

  •  

    I don't think the 20hz extra is worth the $400 or so over the ASUS and ACER equivalents.

    Alienware makes the ROG tax look non existant

      The Acer/Asus panels with 20Hz less (100 overclockable) are different panel with worse colour reproduction and less curve. The Acer model with this panel is the X34.

      There are also Acer/Asus/other with the same panel as this monitor that are usually cheaper but less so than $400. The Acer model is the X34P.

      •  

        Fair enough. Didn't know of a notable improvement in the panel. On face value it seems too much otherwise.

      •  

        To sum up the majority of the reasons to go this vs the x34p is (and please also look at the links in the top comment), is the dell quality control, customer service, and aesthetics. Whether that's worth the extra price is buyer preference.

        •  

          It took Dell 3 months to replace my monitor due to "supply issues". So take the customer service with a grain of salt, I had to check in constantly to get progress. The final result was great but the replacement process was terrible.

          That being said, if I wanted to simply return the monitor for a refund then that would have been muuuuch smoother and faster.

    This was about $100 cheaper on newegg for quite some time.
