Unparalleled visuals: OLED displays deliver astonishing image quality that drops you directly in the game and takes you to new depths previously unexplored.

Infinite contrast: Because OLED displays feature individual pixel lighting and a practically infinite contrast ratio, the Alienware 55 OLED Gaming Monitor achieves “true black” for significantly higher contrast, allowing gameplay to come alive in breathtaking detail.

Colossal colour: A cinematic-quality, wide colour gamut of 98.5% DCI-P3 means colours appear vivid and exactly how they were meant to be seen, making this monitor ideal for both gamers and content creators.

Exhilarating clarity: 4k (2160p) resolution delivers new depths of jaw-dropping detail, taking immersive gaming to an entirely new level. It’s something not often found in gaming monitors, giving the Alienware 55 OLED Gaming Monitor one more advantage over the competition.

120Hz refresh rate: React with split-second decisiveness thanks to a blazing-fast 120Hz refresh rate at 4k resolution.

Seamless graphics: AMD Radeon™ FreeSync™ and G-Sync compatibility eliminate screen tearing, ensuring a fluid experience in image and gameplay.

Low input latency: Thanks to low latency, it takes less time to process changes on screen, ensuring images are quickly and clearly displayed and gameplay feels more responsive.

Blazing-fast response time: An image refresh time of 0.5ms ensures everything in motion stays sharp.

I must be losing my mind when a 55" half baked OLED monitor for £2799.30 is getting voted hot.

A LG C9 is HDMI 2.1 equipped and does 4k @120hz. It will probably even do a much better job with HDR and 4k movies and it costs half the price.

So did i miss something?

It's Alienware, so you can expect better response time and gaming …It's Alienware, so you can expect better response time and gaming experience. The brand itself is not cheap but it's top of the range!


The response time on the LG C9 OLED in game mode is about 2.4ms, with input lag of about 6ms. It's incredibly fast and the difference would be totally imperceptible in my view. The 0.5ms response time advertised here is the absolute best case and only grey-to-grey. In reality it's likely longer.

Something like a C9 OLED is a much better display in general, and can be had for half this price so it would be bonkers to buy this Dell monitor instead. Unless maybe you absolutely must have a DP input!

Wow. Pretty spectacular monitor, but way above my pay range.
Wish thay did a 35 inch verson
What's the difference between this and LG E9 OLED?
No mention of HDR ????

Also to the above comment. This is a monitor not a TV. So will not have Freeview Tuner or TV Remote

Im not sure if 55 inch Monitors have remotes though. Would be a pain if they didnt

Its a monitor, so doubt it would have a TV tuner.

Plus it has a 0.5ms response time which is aimed at gamers.

Agree. The LG C9 is a better choice for less money.
400 nit peak brightness only on such an expensive monitor it should be 1000 nits to be real HDR

1000 nits only applies to LCD TVs, and even then that's a bit misleading. 540 nits is the standard for OLED. This is because they don't need to be as bright as they don't crush as many dark areas to black, so the dynamic range is wider at the dark end.

Still seems like an expensive device though.

Googling a bit, it looks like the LG C9 has 6ms input lag at 120hz or 12ms at 60hz, so under a frame of lag either way. That's certainly good enough for gaming and it's a lot cheaper.

My bad. I'm sure I've heard of some oleds being 1000nits. Maybe i imagined it.
I guess with the true blacks oleds have they don't need to go that bright.

My point is that you can't compare the Alienware with LG as it's piece of art and extreme quality. It's not for everyone, but if you are into Alienware brand the 21% discount is great.

Dont forget the £1200 GPU needed to drive this too.
Yup C9 much better VFM.
Dell/Alienware are expensive and I would never buy one of their PCs over building my own. But the monitors they build are really top quality. I've just bought the Alienware 34 inch Nano IPS monitor and it's absolutely fantastic for gaming and brilliant accurate for photo editing. I'd love to have this but I haven't got the room.

Who even wants to game on a monitor like this?

Having a monitor this size on a desk seems like a terrible idea, and you would want a real TV in the living room instead of this
Can you stack these on a vesa mount - I'd like to have then in a 2:1 configuration with two at the bottom and one above.
stuellis11/05/2020 07:11

Agree. The LG C9 is a better choice for less money.


Yep. The CX will release at around £1700, still cheaper with gsync support and I’m confident we’d see a further drop in response times for gamers.

The partnership between LG and Nvidia blew these Big gaming displays out of the water in respect of value IMO
This has zero benefit over an LG C9 for £1200, other than the ability to do 120hz 4k TODAY whereas the c9 will need a hdmi 2.1 GPU which doesn't exist yet. You can still do 120hz 1440p on the C9 though with HDR enabled, and at a lot higher than 400 nits.
Lot of money to have a start menu burned in unless you're actively trying to prevent it. I'd love a dedicated OLED for my PC but I worry enough using it on my C9 purely for gaming. I can't see this working well if you're sat on the desktop the majority of the time. Screensavers are fine and all but they do detract from the user experience.

What model did ya go for?
This should be voted into the ice age.. There is no reason to buy this over a C9. Review admittedly there is no HDMI 2.1 graphics card support yet to do 4k and 120Hz at the same time..(review) and this thing does have a 1.4 display port that can.. But that don't change things

Exactly... this is probably just for those people simply looking for high end of everything and don't really care about spending a thousand or two. I doubt the target customers will use hotukdeals at all...

Having the money to afford this, I admit, large some of money does not disqualify anyone from liking to get a deal. There are a hell of a lot of people on HUKD that can afford this and are willing to pay to be early adopters. I was an early(ish) adopter of 34inch ultra wide with G-Sync and paid a very hefty sum for an X34A but that was long ago and I wat something new. For me it's either this or the LG C9 55inch, but for me personally I would rather go with teh LG and keep that money saved towards a top tier GPU when I can buy one with HDMI 2.1.

Edit:Just to add that I'm not convinced about burn in with OLED so the other reason is if I can get 2-3 years out of the panel then I can write off the £1200ish LG a lot easier than £2500 for this. Though even with screen burn in there is still value in the TV so it won't be the full amount anyway

This is‘Gaming’ though, innit?
is there a pc with this too lol
I believe there have been enough reviews of this including Linus.
All for early adopters if you have the money but make sure you know any flaws from a review so you know if its something you can live with.
People have been much more impressed by an LG C9 for gaming. Much much cheaper as well.
Some bizarre comments in support of this so let me just mention a few things. You could buy an LG C9 with HDMI 2.1 ports and a dedicated gaming mode and have as great an experience as this monitor then also enjoy 4k UHDs for <£1200 for a 55". The rest of the money which is basically £1100 or so i could build a bloody fantastic PC and STILL not get anywhere close to 4k/120hz with great graphics.

Genuinely you are burning money if you buy this. Hell, i could buy a 65" and STILL save money. Well, there is that "Fools and their money are soon parted" saying for a reason i guess
If this was £2k-ish then I may be seriously tempted!! But alas I don't think they gonna drop quite that far anytime soon
