The Dell S3422DWG is a midrange monitor with a widescreen curved design that is well-suited for an immersive experience in both gaming and productivity tasks due to its large size and ultrawide aspect ratio. It has decent color reproduction for general use, but it's not ideal for professional photo or video editing as it doesn't fully cover professional color gamuts. The monitor is equipped with a higher refresh rate and variable refresh rate support, making it a solid choice for casual gaming. It might not be the top choice for competitive gaming due to its response time. It also offers a good amount of connectivity, although lacking in the latest HDMI 2.1 ports. With a VA panel, expect good contrast but not the best HDR experience, as its peak brightness is adequate, but not exceptional. Give Feedback

IGN

Whitson Gordon | August 2021
"The Dell S3422DWG is, overall, a great monitor that delivers on most of its promises, providing a sharp ultrawide experience with smooth motion. It is, however, not as great of a value proposition, costing a bit too much compared to similar competitors."
