Dell is having a limited sale on their monitors including the new Alienware AW3420DW for $1000 + Tax & free shipping. (Normal is $1,500 + Tax)

Native 120 Hz refresh rate and is 34 inch gaming monitor with the full colors brought by IPS Nano Color (98% DCI-P3) technology and a 2ms response time. Featuring a 1900R WQHD resolution and 21:9 display ratio.

Biggest differences between this model an the older AW3418DW is the native 120Hz refresh rather than 100Hz OC to 120Hz found on the old, 98% DCI-P3 color, 2ms response time rather than 4ms, and an updated stand.

This price is less than the comparable Freesync LG panel.

1) Sign up for email to get 10% coupon code (Email took me ~20 min to arrive)

Quote from jsp872 :
I actually had horrible luck with the AW3418DW, and went with the Asus PG348Q instead. On paper the alienware is the better monitor, but the stutter and dark shadows around the edges were bothersome enough for a return, I thought it was just the one I got and returned it for a different one and it was the same, my local Microcenter has so many alienware returns and non Asus, so I know it isnt just me. Not saying yours is like that, but you may have got a good one out of the bunch, which seems pretty rare
Yeah I definitely don't have dark shadows or stutter on either of mine. The first one I received had a bad displayport cable that Dell Support replaced, but that was the only issue I had with them.

I have both monitors plugged into a 1080 atm.

Can someone explain why this is better than the 34GK950*? Seems close on specs.
No, because it's not. It only has better warranty. I just picked up the 34GK950F for $718 from urlhasbeenblocked. Is everyone posting here high?

Can't help you there. I haven't ordered much though urlhasbeenblocked, like 3 items, but never had a problem. My monitor order with urlhasbeenblocked was through BuyDig. I guess you could order it from them. They occasionally go on sale for $799 which still beats this deal. You won't be disappointed.

The horror stories about the LG monitor with scanlines, along with terrible LG customer service, steered me far away from it. I'd rather pay more for much better customer service, with a panel warranty that leaves little to be desired. Just my 2 cents.

I am waiting on the u3818dw to go down. How is it compares to this one. I am not an avid gamer and don't have a rig to go with. It would like a good IPS screen with a good screen and for work and for my son's games. I like the usb-c thunderbolt on the U series to reduce clutter but not sure if I should wait

This is the same panel as the LG 34 Gsync version (NOT the freesync version which was actually a better panel than this), that was on sale for $650 a few days ago.

The LG and Dell are pretty much the exact same panel (from LG), one has GSYNC and the other, Freesync. Dell down-clocked it to make use of the V1 GSYNC module. That is a known fact posted on tech sites.

It comes down to personal opinion. To me, the LG looks like something found on a 12 yr olds desk and when it breaks, you replace it before calling them.

Dell has its perks for sure. Warranty, nicer bezel / stand etc. Side by side though, they will look very close to the same pic quality.

Some will think, "oh the LG is a few bucks cheaper and it's the "Same". That's cool to, nothing wrong with that. At the end of the day, I just prefer the more premium look on my desk, but I don't look down on LG owners. They probably buy new monitors more than me so they want to save a few bucks.

Go with what your fav one is that fits the budget. We can claim some are better than others all day, and in the end, most are so close it really doesn't matter. Just be sure to get a 1440p IPS 100+ Hz Smilie

Wow, relax bud. ​There's no need for insults.

Go on Amazon and read the recent reviews. All point to the same issue with scan lines. Google the scan line issue too. LG customer service is terrible across the entire range of products.

Your choice is your choice. I'm just trying to educate potential buyers of the reasoning behind my decision.

According to tech sites, they are the same panel. Dell put in a V1 GSYNC chip so they had to downclock it to 120Hz.

Comes down to personal preference. On one had, you have a slightly cheaper (price) version in the LG with Freesync and on the other you have a slightly more expensive (Dell) version with GSYNC.

To me, Dell looks more premium, has a much better warranty, and quite frankly, I prefer the HW adaptice sync in GSYNC much more than Freesync, but everyone is different on that depending on their own situation.

The 120 vs 144 Hz should have no play in your decision. For me, the LG would need to be below $500 for me to even consider it. But again, that is me. YMMV

Edit: The Dell at full MSRP is overpriced, no doubt about that. One thing I forgot to include as to why Dell normally clocks in slightly higher than the competition as well is that they properly calibrate the colors on every monitor before it ships. So out of the box, it looks better than the same LG. Now, nothing is to stop that LG owner to calibrate their own if they know how and have the tools, but hey, most of us want to throw it on the desk and only tweak a few things. That doesn't mean it should be $1,500 but hey, it is something.
