    This minus me checking for burn ins lol. I don't know about others but part of me wishes something does fail in about 4-5 years that way I have an excuse to "Upgrade" lmao

    x34Predator (2015) - > AW3423DW(2022) -> That monitor is the only upgrade I'm going for lol. Not sure when but IMO that's the next iteration. When GPU's finally have DP2.0 is when I hope we start seeing them. . Also waiting for true gaming 27-32" 4k monitor to pair the AW with at the moment...

    Primarily use the AW for PC with some console side duties. With the PS5 officially supporting 1440p, visually a much better experience now. So far my favorite HDR display for both PC and console now.

    Samsung Odyssey OLED G8 34" 21:9 (3,440 x 1,440) Ultra Wide 175 Hz

    Super interested in how the same panel performs with Samsung vs Dell vs MSI when they finally all release. Haven't heard anything about MSI variant in a while

    Dell Alienware AW3423DW 34″ QD-OLED 175Hz (3440 x 1440)

    As you said, there is imperceptible difference in image quality pertaining to scenes like in COD. The x34(100hz max) is such an old panel though so when it comes to refresh and clarity, it's so lopsided on how clear the QD is. Lack of UW support in PC gaming is so dumb especially nowadays...

    Dell Alienware AW3423DW 34″ QD-OLED 175Hz (3440 x 1440)

    - If black light bleed or lack of contrast doesn't bother you with your current panel, I don't think SDR content will be a substantial improvement to you especially if you typically use in lighted environment. That being said, HDR performance, if supported by the game/content you are watching is...

    Dell Alienware AW3423DW 34″ QD-OLED 175Hz (3440 x 1440)

    Yup, can confirm it works. HFW is somewhat odd though depending on what you choose for in game settings. VRR works for performance mode but seems to disable HDR. Resolution enables HDR but disables VRR. Can't remember about balanced.

    21:9 is built-into the menu so no need to create custom resolutions etc. lol

    Odyssey Neo G8 - 4K 240 Hz 32" Quantum Mini LED

    Gotcha, thanks for the feedback. Seems much better then. Possibly due to much higher resolution but damn, sad to hear yours started developing them.

    Dell Alienware AW3423DW 34″ QD-OLED 175Hz (3440 x 1440)

    Thanks for taking the plunge for us Odellus lol. Have HDR running all the time with "SDR" set to 8. That being said, same as you have not babied this monitor at all. No screensaver, display off etc. Have only interrupted the refresh thing a handful of times though.

    Dell Alienware AW3423DW 34″ QD-OLED 175Hz (3440 x 1440)

    As others have brought up, likely related to G-Sync. Make sure to change the setting to Full Screen only. Had a similar issue with a Photo Editing app (Hardware Acceleration) and that solved the issue for me.

    Odyssey Neo G8 - 4K 240 Hz 32" Quantum Mini LED

    Pertaining to VRR control. If this is anything like the G7, the setting was introduced in later firmware updates to combat "black flicker". While it does prevent the flicker, some would perceive increased stutter...

    Tft didn't take any measurements though they did note PCmonitors uses the same method they do. That being said, you shouldn't be comparing input lag results between reviewers as the tests done are not "Standard". The best you can do is to compare the reviewer's result with other monitors...

    IMO it's in LAN scenarios that such a thing would make the biggest difference. Online gaming, ping is still king and then there's just other variables. That being said, I understand those who want to have the best of the best but usually those people still complain about anything regardless...

    Dell Alienware AW3423DW 34″ QD-OLED 175Hz (3440 x 1440)

    For brightness, I'll update my post but it's mostly for people who like to blast theirs 250+nits as preference and/or due to room lighting scenario. That video is taken with a N20 at 960FPS so it makes it more visible. In real time use, would say the bigger difference is in feeling and how much...

    Dell Alienware AW3423DW 34″ QD-OLED 175Hz (3440 x 1440)

    For my case usage, yes. I am still happy with 3440x1440p along with wanting high refresh. My original set-up of 4790 & 980ti with the x34 was just fine but obviously even back then would need to turn down settings. In 2020 updated to 5900x/3080 combo which was finally able to utilize x34 to it's...

    Dell Alienware AW3423DW 34″ QD-OLED 175Hz (3440 x 1440)

    True, but I think the publications need to be contacted otherwise they wouldn't know. Because how about things such as VRR/Gsync/Free-sync on/off during these tests among other things. Just recently Rtings included these but moving forward, think it needs to be a staple for other as well. That...

    Dell Alienware AW3423DW 34″ QD-OLED 175Hz (3440 x 1440)

    It could, but if you're getting an OLED bright lighting scenarios is somewhat already a known thing to keep an eye on. Is this from an official source or just hearsay? If Dell is having trouble getting these out, surprised BB would have any. Which makes me wonder when and if Samsung will...

    Seems like majority of owners here are just enjoying their monitor/panels. Looking at all the reviews, primarily YT, it's interesting to see how others perceive the technical data and subjective portions.

    Dell Alienware AW3423DW 34″ QD-OLED 175Hz (3440 x 1440)

    The test is valid and "proper". There are a lot of us who use Gsync/Adaptive Sync. That being said, hopefully you get your non-gsync results as well since that is also valid.

    Dell Alienware AW3423DW 34″ QD-OLED 175Hz (3440 x 1440)

    Matches my initial impression of the monitor as well. Works fine for my "competitive" needs though I assume most would be using a 16:9 for said scenarios. Curious if Dell can fine tune the processing delay and how the G8 will handle this. That being said, have basically swapped over gaming/FPS...

    Dell Alienware AW3423DW 34″ QD-OLED 175Hz (3440 x 1440)

    Nothing too scientific but sharing some findings with my prior monitors recorded with N20U "Ultra Slow" capture. For MW19/Vanguard, between the G7 and AW I'd go with the AW. x34 (2015) vs AW at native 3440x1440p resolution Aw3423DW vs X34 Predator(2015) Capped @60FPS/Max Hz COD Vanguard...

    Dell Alienware AW3423DW 34″ QD-OLED 175Hz (3440 x 1440)

    Attaining high refresh is of course preferred but with OLED and Gsync this baby is smooth. Only clarity is diminished when you start getting lower FPS of course.

    Odyssey Neo G8 - 4K 240 Hz 32" Quantum Mini LED

    Depends on you and how you perceive stutter/judder and if you have games/gpu that can actually push the higher refresh. Samsung panels are great but the biggest issue so far is how Samsung Electronics executes with said panels. For example their 1440p G7 variants on paper are basically what...

    Dell Alienware AW3423DW 34″ QD-OLED 175Hz (3440 x 1440)

    So far haven't seen any real numbers taken with Native display resolution and Max hz. Waiting on Rtings, HUB, TFT, Prad, etc. The panel is fast and without the weird ghosting/smearing issues. Have placed a G7 240hz 1440p and AW side by side and the G7 is a smidge faster in response while AW has...

    Surprised they could even ship you one that soon. I'm guessing stock just came in and orders are going out again. That being said, guessing your going the lottery route right now? Unless if they've changed how it ships with the bubble wrap sheet? Edit: you answered above while I was typing...
