Alienware Releases 21.5-inch LCD Gaming Monitor

By - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 3 comments

Alienware's new monitor is a... monitor.

Alienware is known for making excessive and flashy gaming systems – after all, it’s the system maker’s specialty.

The company normally offers its computers with Dell UltraSharp monitors, which takes advantage of its parent company’s product line. When we found out that the boutique builder was planning to unveil a special branded monitor, we were left wondering just how one would make a typical utilitarian monitor into something flashy and excessive.

Thankfully, Alienware’s just announced 21.5-inch OptX AW2210 appears to have specifications and a price that makes it attractive to more than just hardcore gamers.

Even though Alienware says that the monitor is “Designed to Intimidate” and “Impress your opponents with a slim matte black bezel, sleek lines and a dramatic profile that sets the tone for serious gaming,” it looks like most other LCD monitors apart from the angular stand.

Check out the rest of the specs:

• 21.5-inch Widescreen Flat Panel LCD
• 1920 x 1080 Full HD Resolution
• Ultra-Fast 2ms Response Time
• Low Input-Lag for Intense Gaming
• 16.7 Million Colors for Vibrant Images
• 80,000:1 Dynamic Contrast Ratio
• Tilt, Swivel and Height Adjustable Stand
• 2 x HDMI ports allow for you to plug in to your PC or your TV for either PC or console gaming sessions
• 4 x Universal Serial Bus ports for hassle free connection to flash drives, mouse, keyboard and other peripherals

The press release and the Dell configure website has this priced at $299, but the link from Alienware’s site has it for $290 – something to keep in mind if you’re interested in picking one up.
