The Alienware AW3423DWF is $1099 and comes with a 3 year warranty for defects and burn in. It's the same size as a 27" vertically as well.This is almost what i have been looking for, 27 is perfect for my setup, i am more then happy with 1440P since my video card cant run 4k anyway. Not a fan of the antiglare but will be keeping an eye on this for sure
Looked at this model and i dont like the curved screen, buying a monitor these days is so hit and miss, if i could get a 27-30 LG C2 i would already have one sitting on my deskThe Alienware AW3423DWF is $1099 and comes with a 3 year warranty for defects and burn in.

Waiting for 32" version, 27" too small for me. Been running 32" for over a decade now.
Lol yeah."...Or perhaps we can interest you in the new 22-inch, 480Hz flavor OLED - coming to your ass in 2024...."
People have been bugging LG for smaller sized OLED's for so long that I'm wondering if they aren't beginning to release ever-smaller sizes sarcastically. As a student of South Korean culture and mindset (I watched Squid Game, and I've heard about something called K-Pop) I'm starting to suspect that's what they're up to.
You must have missed the Alienware OLED monitor that released back in June. It has a 175 Hz refresh rate.https://www.lg.com/us/monitors/lg-27gr95qe-b#pdp_where
Looks like the age of OLED gaming monitors is about to become a reality.
Newsflash: Any display technology is inherently prone to premature aging, which is another way of saying burn-in/static image retention or uneven pixel/phosphor wear. Now, how you USE your display and will it affect YOU....that's entirely dependent on your relationship with the technology gods...
I didn’t miss it. Unfortunately, that’s an Ultrawide monitor with a curve, so it does not appeal to me.You must have missed the Alienware OLED monitor that released back in June. It has a 175 Hz refresh rate.
Yea and how many people actually experienced burn in on a crt or traditional lcd? Can it happen? Sure but I never seen it. Outside Plasma, rear projection and OLED TVs burn in was never a concern for people.Newsflash: Any display technology is inherently prone to premature aging, which is another way of saying burn-in/static image retention or uneven pixel/phosphor wear.

Worth mentioning: CRT's suffered from this and none of us a gave Two F's about it back in the day......unless you owned a rear projection device (which was VERY high voltage and VERY bright to light up those big-box projection TV's)....those you had to be a little more careful with. So, you're PROBABLY going to be fine but, don't dismiss it as "not a thing" anymore.....the lowest likelihood of seeing image retention is with LCD but, full disclosure, I had a Westinghouse Monitor that was backlit by CCFT's in the mid 2000's that absolutely had "burn in". Different problem because of the quality of the crystal display itself and the crystals not switching back they way they needed to do, but the image output issue was the same as burn in.
02 cents: I have found that having a super inky black display is great for watching movies, but for gaming...9 times out of 10 things are moving too fast and I am too engaged to *really* care about "Is my monitor imagine quality THE ABSOLUTE BEST RIGHT NOW!?"....if you're sitting there staring.....you notice the displayed images more...if you're gaming.....you're gaming, and only if the display is garbage/hiding information/distracting do you notice if your color accuracy is aligned to some standard or how many peak nits you're getting in HDR.
Thats the kind of crap Linus Tech Tips needs to focus on because otherwise all their monitor reviews would be 30 seconds long: "It displays your games, it has no smearing or it does" etc.
I've only seen burn-in on old CRT and TFT monitors when they're left on all day at the highest brightness setting with no screen saver. Coincidentally it's the same with OLED. That should definitely qualify as an edge case, not the norm. The issue with CRT displays is the phosphors decaying and needing the white balance adjusted for it. I've been using my LG C8 for over 4 years now with a mix of gaming and PC use, and there is no sign of burn-in.Yea and how many people actually experienced burn in on a crt or traditional lcd?

Uh, if that were the case, we would have more monitors with gloss coatings.It uses an antiglare/problur coating, making MOST of the advantage of OLED useless.
People always bring up burn in on these. Had my 48 CX since they came out. I mostly play Wow and Diablo 3 on it. Haven’t had any issues at all. I do run window in dark mode and have a screen saver and have to shut off after 15. But I have messed up and left it on a few times in something paused with no issues. I’m so use to the 48 now I’m not sure I could go much smaller like 40-42 maybe. My buddy got the 34 Dell and it’s way to tiny. Granted I have a super deep desk at 34inchs so I sit pretty far back. I think 32 is a good solid size. As someone else said I wish they would bring back 16:10 miss my dell 30inch from way back. Oh and damn near anything will burn in. My gym has a newer LCD at the front desk(I do there IT work) it’s burned like crazy from the check in program they use.
Some one else was saying you don’t notice picture quality when gaming. I beg to disagree, playing a dark game on my CX is so much more immersive. The contrast makes such a huge difference In everything.
