Alienware, now under the watchful eye of hardware giant Dell, is a brand that delivers serious gaming gear to, well, serious gamers. These premium products include full fledged laptops to gaming peripherals, an important one being the monitor. Today we have a coveted model by them, called the AW2310. It’s large, wide and comes packed with promises, one of them being 120 Hz refresh rate for 3D playback. Let’s check it out.

The bezel itself is a straight up, solid rectangular block made of matte black. There are no curves, no plastic rims nothing. The Alienware logo is printed on the center of the bottom panel, while the right panel lower end, has a column of touch responsive buttons, very seamless and slick. The LEDs representing the buttons light up in pure white.

The stand is where all the action is – it’s glossy and contoured to look like the leg of an Autobot. The screen can swivel and tilt quite healthily: about 45 degrees in each direction with a 20 degree tilt. The screen itself can be adjusted for height, it slides up and down on the stand’s brace.
