Review: New Dell/Alienware Gaming Monitor Packs Serious Creative Punch
CRN reviews Dell’s new Alienware 34-inch QD-OLED and looked for an answer for a pressing question. Could a flashy gaming monitor be useful in the business world?
With the ultrawide 21:9 aspect ratio display, you can have many windows open at once without much trouble toggling back and forth between programs. You’ve probably worked on wide screens and double-screen setups, but an ultra-wide screen beats both options. Lightroom and Photoshop can easily both be displayed in the background. If quick accessibility is important to you, the ultra-wide is a wise investment.
The unit does take up a considerable amount of space. It’s not a small footprint by any measure. But it’s workable.
Adjustments are a breeze with a toggle selector just under the front of the display. The factory standard preset excellent in terms of brightness, sharpness and contrast. But you can easily toggle around and find the best solution for your needs. A lot of the presets are meant for gaming.
