The Dell Alienware AW3423DWF is a premium-priced ultra-wide OLED monitor ideal for an immersive gaming experience, offering excellent image clarity with deep blacks and high contrast. Its OLED technology provides quick response times, which is great for competitive gaming. However, its glossy screen might reflect light in bright rooms, affecting text readability, which could be a concern for productivity tasks. For media enthusiasts, the monitor offers fantastic color coverage making it suitable for HDR gaming and media consumption, though it's not designed for professional color work like HDR video editing. With a fair brightness level, it might not perform best in very well-lit environments. The stand is adjustable for added comfort, and the connectivity options include DisplayPort and HDMI, but with limited USB ports and without USB-C power delivery. Give Feedback

Jeremy Laird | May 2023
"It may seem like a minor tweak, but the addition of a glossy anti-glare coating makes all the difference. It really lets the OLED panel rip. That this revised "F" model is also cheaper than the OG Alienware OLED and the similarly glossy Philips competition seals the deal. This is our new favourite among the OLED monitor massive."
