The Alienware AW3418DW offers an incredibly rich 34-inch curved display and strong gaming performance. Alienware has proven that it can make peripherals that are striking as its future PCs with the AW3418DW curved monitor. The Alienware AW3418DW is built specifically to grab your attention. This bold ultrawide display sports the same sleek design aesthetic as Alienware’s desktops and laptops, with a sharply angled base and thin LED lighting strips along the monitor’s rear panel, stand and underside.
The AW3418DW can be tilted 5 degrees forward or 25 degrees backward, swiveled 40 degrees side to side, or raised up or down about 5 inches, all of which is fairly standard for a gaming display. You can’t rotate the display into a vertical portrait mode, but that’s not a feature I’d expect from an ultrawide curved monitor. Alienware’s curved display has a fairly standard selection of inputs. In the back, you’ll find HDMI and Display Port for connecting to your PC, as well as two USB 3.0 Type A ports and a USB 3.0 Type B port for accessories. The rear ports are a bit hard to reach since you can’t rotate the display vertically. Fortunately, there are an additional two USB 3.0 ports as well as a headphone jack located on the bottom bezel for easily connecting your accessories.
Alienware’s curved monitor turned in a strong 270 nits of brightness on our light meter, topping the Acer Predator X34 (261 nits) and our 255-nit average, while coming up short of BenQ’s XR3501 (304 nits). Alienware’s display reproduced a strong 127.2 percent of the sRGB color gamut, besting the Acer Predator X34 (98.9 percent) as well as the BenQ XR3501 (115 percent).
The AW3418DW packs three game-specific display modes: an FPS mode that ups the brightness, an RTS mode that packs extra-saturated colors, and an RPG mode with deeper, more cinematic blacks. There are also three fully customizable presets, as well as a warm preset, a cool preset and a ComfortView option that reduces blue light.
