I will be buying the AW QD-OLED, so excited.
I won't be buying the AW QD-OLED.
Changed my mind, buying it, looks awesome.
Nope, not buying it, ultrawide is trash.
Tried UW at a mates house, actually I think I like it, will be buying.
Nope, ultra wide is trash.
**** it, I am buying it, don't want to miss out.
This monitor is trash, I ain't buying it.
UW is so trash.
Trash...

Erm, I am not a UW lover?

No one here said everyone wants UW? Your the one in a UW monitor thread constantly trying to justify why you are missing out on this monitor?

Am I RIGHT? :p;):D

Playing around with a black screen screensaver. The monitor seems to flash white briefly before going dark.

Anyone else tried that?

MSI just announced the MEG 342C QD-OLED at Computex be interesting to see how it compares to the Alienware.

Some pics of it here https://www.pcmag.com/news/msis-latest-monitor-uses-samsungs-qd-oled-display-tech

Not a fan of the gold highlights, but I definitely think it looks nicer than their usual gamer focused stuff. Tiny pics so I might be mistaken, but it looks like it has way less venting than the AW so it'll be interesting to see how it handles cooling.

Not a fan of MSI. Would take a lot for me to buy from them. Good to have choice though.

Even with the shortage of AW’s I trust Dell more based on my experience with them than most other companies. Just hope mine does not fail for at least another 4-6 months as it will take that long for stock situation to normalise. After that can expect next day replacement for sure :)

If Dell does release a 27-32” 4K 120hz QD-OLED and I can shift what I have and buy that at no extra cost, I may do that potentially. Saying that though I am getting used to this potato resolution once again, so may not even bother as the extra width does come in handy for productivity. Plus running older games at native and not worrying about UI is nice.

My guys, the stars have aligned and my order went in to production at some point today! Not sure exactly when as I didn't get a notification, but forward movement is always a good sign.

Anyone with a 3rd of June estimate, check your order status on the Dell site!

Same here, 3rd June estimate and went into production this morning. Here’s hoping that means it’s actually gonna arrive soon.

If I was to order one the estimated delivery date has now gone from September to Estimated delivery date Tuesday, 4 October. :rolleyes:
Bloody hell. It says August on their website for new orders. Why are they be saying that when your order is October?

That said, bodes well for me. My revised delivery date for the next one I got on the way is June 15, so I should be in the next lot of dispatches hopefully :)

Both are pretty ugly imo,MSI with the gold and Dell with the white! Maybe the gold strips on the MSI are rgb? Not fussed about RGB myself but if it is you can atleast changed it to something other than tacky gold, or better yet turn it off.

Oh I don't care about the backs. The Dell at least looks modern/futuristic on the back and you never see the back anyway. The MSI has too many front facing styling distractions from what I can see. I much prefer completely plain fronts with a matte case frame/bottom bezel.

The MSI definitely has some advantages over the Alienware, the built in KVM and no g-sync fan are I suppose the main ones. It's also far more likely to get firmware updates that can be installed via the user.
