Oh yeah? Wanna link me one?

On another note, this is the normal price for the monitor, with an inflated MSRP.
Lowest it's been pre-COV-19 price inflation was about $1000.

It's valid, but the light bleed and QC seems horrendous.
Was doubting anyone could link something worthy of comparing to the Dell AW3420DW, but the vague description proved me wrong.
Dell's Premium panel warranty and 3 year warranty offsets most of these issues.

How are you not understanding that the appeal of this monitor is the ultra wide resolution to simulate multiple monitor in a single one?
Saying "you can get 4k for that price" doesn't mean anything unless it's also an ultra wide but 4k monitor.
It's like telling someone who's about to buy 300 threads King sized bed sheets: "you know you can get 600 threads queen bed sheets for that price right?"

I can vouch that it's an excellent monitor. I purchased it a month ago.

My purchase price was $1088 all in and 4 percent rakuten . I took advantage of an error in the cart that multiplied my savings bringing the monitor to sub $1000 prices. No idea how it happened but I quickly purchased it before my cart expired.

Long story short. Excellent monitor and build quality, but maybe continue to monitor the price

I do, however, prefer the appearance of the OP's monitor. Very clean design.
The Alienware AW3420 is native 120hz. X34 is natively 100hz which needs to be overlocked to get to 120hz. Most should be able to do it without issue, but there have been some instances of not being to hit it.

LG one you linked is great but that's the Freesync version -- the G-Sync one costs way more.

Dell also provides their 3 year extended warranty on this monitor which isn't too bad.

Not a bad price and monitor, especially if you're a fan of Alienware and/or are finishing a set. At a slightly cheaper price point, I have found the Acer Predator x34 to be a very solid ultrawide and would highly recommend it, as long as refresh rate isn't too important to you. There's very little difference between 100 and 120 Mhz but 100 and 144 Hz ultrawide is a little more obvious.

Are you responding to my post or PerformingAzura's? For all we know, Expliciate might be in the market and trying to compare prices and models given different aspect ratio and use cases. It was merely a response to the request.

I understand. What you don't understand is I was providing the link.

Don't nVidia cards (with the appropriate drivers) also support Freesync these days? Why get locked into G-Sync monitors AND pay more?

Okay this one is actually a better deal.

The LG 950F uses the same panel as the AW3420, which the 3rd gen UW LG panel. But the Freesync version lets you go up to 144hz among other improvements like more inputs. Here's a direct comparision: https://www.rtings.com/monitor/tools/co ... w/894/1785

Not that the AW is bad or anything, but it often goes below $1200 if not more when you stack various coupons and cash back. $1300 is more like the regular price at this point.
There's a sucker born every minute.

nVidia cards can be hit and miss when it comes to FreeSync monitors. Going on Google, it does seem this monitor has little to no issues with G-Sync: https://www.reddit.com/r/ultrawidemaste ... 0fb_gsync/

If you're invested in the nVidia ecosystem and really care about G-Sync, monitors with native G-Sync support can make sense.
