The new and beautiful Alienware 34-inch curved gaming monitor is $500 off at Dell

The Alienware AW3420DW 34-inch curved G-Sync gaming monitor (opens in new tab) is down to $999.99 at Dell. That seems like a lot, but it's a nice deal when you realize it has been selling for $1,500 since it first came out.

If that price is a little too steep or that monitor a little too large, you can also save on the other new Alienware monitor announced this year. The Alienware 27-inch FreeSync monitor (opens in new tab) is down to $419.99 at Dell, which is a new low. It's currently on sale for $450 at other retailers like Amazon (opens in new tab).

This monitor released in late August for $1,500. This is the price it should've been. Specs include a 3440 x 1440 resolution, 120Hz refresh rate, and 2ms response time. Has a USB hub. The IPS panel uses Nano Color tech for amazing color accuracy.

We shared the announcement for these monitors back in August. The screens released at a starting price of $1,500 and $600 respectively, and we haven't seen them really go on sale since.

The technical specifications for the 34-inch LED backlit monitor include a pixel resolution of 3440 x 1440, a native refresh rate of 120 Hz, and a response time of 2 ms. It also has a brightness of 350 nits, a curved screen for greater immersion, and a 21:9 aspect ratio. The connectivity options include one HDMI port, one DisplayPort, and a USB hub that includes two USB 3.0 ports on the front and three on the back (with one of those being USB upstream).

The monitor also has Nvidia's G-Sync technology. Connect to the monitor from your Nvidia graphics card with DisplayPort to get the full effect. It helps reduce screen tearing and blurring during high impact media or gaming. The difference is huge.

Thanks to the IPS panel, the screen has 178-degree viewing angles. In addition to the color accuracy IPS panels are already known for, this display uses Dell's Nano Color technology, giving you some of the best image quality on any computer monitor around.

The monitor is a followup to Dell's successful Alienware AW3418DW display (opens in new tab). That one is much less expensive at $770, but it also lacks many of the improvements of the new model (including Nano Color tech).
