The Alienware 34 QD-OLED monitor is already sold out after going on sale this morning.
The highly anticipated 34-inch gaming monitor retails for $1,400 and features a curved design, high response rate, Nvidia G-Sync Ultimate certification, and a range of included ports and cables among its key features.
In our Alienware 34 QD-OLED review, we cited its QD-OLED contrast, HDR performance, color saturation, minimalist design, and affordability as its most positive attributes.
Specs include a size of 34 inches with an aspect ratio of 21:9, a refresh rate of 175Hz and a curve of 1800R. Its brightness and HDR performance, however, is what makes it so special. Alienware claims peak brightness of up to 1,000 nits in HDR, and that’s exactly what we were able to measure on it.
Included cables include a DisplayPort to DisplayPort, a Mini DisplayPort to DisplayPort, and a SuperSpeed USB cable.
Rear ports include two HDMI 2.0, one DisplayPort 1.4, two USB 3.2 Gen 1 downstream with battery charging support 1.2, two USB 3.2 Gen 1 downstream, one USB 3.2 Gen 1 upstream, one audio output and headphone jack.
The monitor’s G-Sync Ultimate feature also contributes to the overall performance with its high refresh rate.
Gaming monitors with OLED technology remain rare on the market. LG recently announced its 48-inch UltraGear 48GQ900 monitor; however, the brand has yet to reveal the price of the product. The monitor is expected to be expensive due to its size and OLED display. This monitor has other highlight features as well, such as 4K resolution, but it’s a much bigger screen.
The release of Alienware’s OLED monitor, with a curved design nonetheless, is an indication that the display technology could be set to enter a range. The Alienware 34 uses a QD-OLED display panel made by Samsung, which seems to be cheaper than the traditional OLED panel.
Overall, component pricing is a big reason why OLED displays aren’t common in gaming monitors. Alienware released a 55-inch Alienware OLED gaming monitor in 2019 that cost $4,000. Its price then fell to $2,500.
The Alienware 34 QD-OLED currently appears to be completely out of stock, with no clear indication of when supply will drop.
