It’s the monitor that I’ve been waiting for
For being the first (and so far the only) QD-OLED monitor on the market, Alienware’s AW3423DW should satisfy a lot of people. If only it were easier to purchase right now.

For those who have the new AW3423DW and the LG C1, how does the QD-Oled compare?
The AW3423DW is terrible inaccurate OOTB and blacks turn grey, if ambient lighting hits the screen, due to the lack of a polarizer. The difference is minor and only noticable in bright colours when compared side-by-side. The AW34 also suffers from metamerism, which means perfect D65 will not look like D65 on non wide-color-gamut displays the bias is more towards a reddish-green.

AW3423DW (and other OLED) text rendering is bad. Are there subpixel rendering fixes? Will microsoft step in?
I am replying to this post on my AW3423DW right now. I've had it for about two full days now, and I have to disagree. The text looks just as good on mine as any other 1440p gaming monitor I've tried.
Hardwareunboxed with images on the AW3423DW with different lighting scenarios to show the lifted blacks.
A bit strange that Tim and Vincent, two of the most respected reviewers in the world, are both wrong when claiming that the AW3423DW doesn't handle room lighting well. This seems more and more like a repeat of the "My Samsung G9 is perfect" situation. Perhaps we need to accept that there are no perfect monitors/TVs...which doesn't stop me dreaming of ever finding one though 😂.
When you have two AW3423DW and they both have dead/stuck pixels 😭
Ordered 4 AW3423DW's - 1 had a broken control stick, 1 had colored 'tear' lines streaking across half the panel, 1 seemed fine until I noticed a dead pixel and slight damage to the screen coating layer, the last one seems to be fine (for now). Luckily, they were able to ship me replacements relatively quickly, even though the replacements were obviously refurbished. I've had many Alienware ultrawides and this has had the most QC issues by far... ...but I'd put up with the hassle again for this monitor though, it checks so many feature boxes and the picture quality is amazing as expected.
Aw3423dw & aw3420dw stacked
Decided to stack my older model aw3420dw on top, I'm actually loving it. For the aw3423dw, SD hdr is on 50 and custom mode with 400 true black. Don't really know how to dial in color yet. Just a little comparison, probably doesn't show the oled off.
Need help deciding between AW3423DW and LG 34GN850
The AW3423DW no doubt is a great monitor but at double the price of the LG, it's a little hard to swallow. I will eventually get the AW later after perhaps 3 years when competition catches up and prices drop. A 38" Quantum Dot is definitely on my radar.
thinking of replacing my current LG ultrawide
There really isn't anything that can compete with the AW3423DW right now. My premier order got canceled too and I just went and bought it through the store. If you don't need a new monitor right now the current ETA for deliveries is the beginning of June.
Dell Alienware AW3423DW
The Dell Alienware AW3423DW is the first QD-OLED monitor. QD-OLED is a new technology that aims to combine the strengths of OLED and quantum dot displays to produce perfect black levels with a wider range of colors that get brighter compared to standard OLED displays. It's the same technology that t...
