Alienware OptX AW2210


Best known for its high-end (and high-priced) gaming systems, Alienware is looking to enter the monitor market. The Dell subsidiary is making it debut with the 21.5-inch OptX AW2210 ($299 direct). This desktop display boasts wide color gamut...

Highly adjustable stand. Great color and dark-grayscale performance. Includes dual HDMI ports and a USB hub

Slightly expensive. Unable to reproduce very light grays. Finicky function buttons

Designed for gamers, the Alienware OptX AW2210 is a slick-looking 21.5-inch HD display that offers some nice ergonomic and connectivity features as well as solid color and 3D gaming performance, but they come at a high price.

Amazing Monitor!


Amazing buy. Definitely worth the dinero.

This monitor is fast, the picture is crystal clear, and it has a lot of connections available. Comes with just about all of the cables that it is compatible with

If I have to say anything bad about this - No HDMI cable in the box, and no built-in speakers, but neither of these are advertised, so I couldn't really call them cons at all

Consumer review by:

Great monitor


Amazing picture ; Great Response time ; No lag

Back ports kind of hard to get to can't seem to get the plastic guard off, but other then that nothing

Love the monitor


When I finally build my own machine last year, I did a lot of research. I knew I was trying to build a machine that could handle the high refresh rate needed for intense 3D gaming as well as a machine that could handle the demands of content creation...

Just excellent


Having used now two of these for my Alienware Aurora ALX I have nothing but positive to say about the displays. Highly recommended!

The Best TN Panel


No more dead pixels, no more ghosting, and no more hideous light bleed from all over the screen (just a hint of bleed from the right and bottom screen). This monitor is perfect for a TN panel, the best of the best.

Monitor is nice for the price.
