Update: Annnnd, he's gone. Given the sheer discount, it's not surprising that it runs out so quickly. While not as good as a deal, Dell has this listing as Doorbuster deal on their website for $ 799.99, which is still below last year's Black Friday prices. And for other display deals, don't forget to check out our Amazon Prime Day monitor sales summary, which we'll be constantly updating.
Original story: Large monitors tend to have large price tags, especially when loaded with gaming conveniences, such as fast response times and variable refresh rate support. Fortunately, sales are taking some of the sting of waste on a luxury screen. The big sale right now is Amazon’s Prime Day event, and as a part, you can get an Alienware AW3420DW for $ 615.99.
That's $ 384 below its list price on Amazon, and it's below Dell's unrealistic $ 1,519.99 price tag. For a more detailed look at how good this deal is, we highlighted this same model when it dropped to $ 839.99 during last year's Black Friday sale. Today's discount is $ 224 below that mark.
Alienware AW3420DW | Curved | 34 inch monitor | 3440×1440 | 120Hz |
$ 999.99 $ 615.99 on Amazon (save $ 384)
This is a large and fast game monitor with G-Sync support. Compared to the previous model (AW3418DW) that we like so much, the latest version has a higher color gamut and a faster response time.See offer
What you will get here is a 34-inch ultra widescreen display with a curved IPS panel, 3440×1440 resolution (21: 9 aspect ratio), 2 ms response time, 120 Hz refresh rate, and Nvidia G-support. Sync to keep the screen action in sync with your GeForce graphics card (to virtually eliminate screen tearing).
This is a newer version of the AW3418DW, which adorns our list of the best curved game monitors. For the AW3420DW, Dell upgraded the display to a "Nano Color" IPS display, which has a shorter response time (2 ms vs. 4 ms) and a wider color gamut: 98% of the DCI-P3 color space and 134.5% of the sRGB color space, the latter exceeds 99% over the previous model.
Therefore, the AW3420DW offers the same rich features, but is a bit faster and should produce more accurate colors. Get the deep discount and this is an easy recommendation.
