Alienware’s upcoming QD-OLED monitor has a price tag of $1,299

Alienware’s upcoming 34-inch gaming monitor is the first of its kind to ship with Samsung’s new Quantum Dot OLED panel, and will cost you a reasonable $1,299, according to a report from Ars Technica† The Dell company debuted the monitor (AW3423DW) at CES this year and will begin shipping this spring.

While the price isn’t exactly low, it’s still cheaper than some of the standard OLED monitors on the market today. For example, LG’s 32-inch Ultrafine UHD OLED monitor, while not exactly ideal for gaming, runs for $3,999. Alienware’s 55-inch OLED gaming monitor currently costs $2,719 on Amazon and was first released in 2019 for $3,999 – size is clearly a factor here, but it’s still nice to see a monitor that uses new QD OLED technology that is well below the $2,000 mark.

Alienware’s QD-OLED monitor comes with all the benefits of an OLED monitor, including deep blacks and bold contrast. Adding Quantum Dot technology into the mix allows for higher levels of brightness with more vibrant colors – the monitor should claim 99.3 percent of the DCI-P3 color space. It also has a 3440 x 1400 resolution, a 175 Hz refresh rate and a brightness of 250 nits with a maximum of 1,000 nits. You can also expect a fast 0.1ms response and support for Nvidia’s G-Sync Ultimate technology.

The $1,299 price tag on this Alienware monitor gives us a hint as to the kind of pricing we can expect for other products that use Samsung’s QD-OLED technology. Sony is expected to release the first-ever QD-OLED 4K TV later this year, and it will be interesting to find out how much it costs.
