Just looking at it makes you realize that the 34-inch spaceship that landed in your living room is mighty pretty and oozes power. Its silver finish gives a cutting-edge feel, and the two LED light strips, which you can change the color of, provide a space-age impression. Its eerie glow heightens your gaming suspense, and upon closer inspection, you will not be disappointed as the violent, vivid colors displayed on this monitor bring your gaming experience to a whole new level.
The AW3418DW is a mouthful to say, but you might as well keep that mouth of yours open for the jaw-dropping specs it throws at you. It is the best gaming monitor out there and clocks an impressive refresh rate of 120Hz, which for the new buyer means bye-bye to blur and ta-ta to tearing. You will undoubtedly be moving from a slower device, and the difference will be as clear as the screen you are looking at.
The Alienware’s display is so broad that the player’s peripheral vision gets to savor the sensation of playing a game. Where an HDTV has an aspect ratio of 16:9, the AW3418DW rivals the aspect ratio of your latest movie house with 21:9. With a width like that, we are talking a totally immersive gaming experience. What is more, when it comes to width – Alienware have kept the bezels to a minimum, and therefore it does not encroach on any of your screen real estates.
One would think with a monitor like this; you would have to beam someone in from Star Trek to assemble it. Fortunately, this is not the case, and without having to get out your screwdrivers, spanners or even the hammer, you can have this sturdy, yet sleek, monster screen ready to whisk you away in no time at all. Due to you being able to take off the back panel you can now easily get to the I/O ports on this impressive monitor. It also comes with a DisplayPort 1.2 and an HDMI 1.4 connection which is really all you need for gaming pleasure. To add to this, there is a 3.5mm headphone port, four USB 3 ports, and a USB upstream port.
At just over a thousand dollars Alienware stays ahead of the game with their gorgeous and curved monitor. The screen can be tilted forward or backward, swiveled side to side and even raised up and down. The gaming characters burst to life and move fluidly with no noticeable drag. The gaming sensation is instant, vivid and powerful with an explosion of detail. You will be sucked into your gaming reality.
It is a no-brainer when it comes to competitive gaming. The AW3418DW puts you on the battlefield and gives you the whole picture clearer and faster than anything else out there, allowing you to beat your competitors like Alienware have beaten theirs. Good luck.
