The best
Ultrawide monitors
compared

More screen area for higher productivity

The introduction of ultrawide monitors was intended to increase productivity, since you can now have several windows open next to each other and don’t always have to switch back and forth between different windows. It also saves having to set up multiple monitors side by side. We’ll show you which Ultrawide monitors are the best here.

Our main product is the Dell U3818DW, since it scores best in the overall concept. Especially due to the Picture-in-Picture feature, this monitor can increase productivity in various areas. Our alternatives are mainly aimed at gamers, even though they can definitely both be used for different areas. The Acer Nitro XV340CK impresses with its excellent motion handling, while the Dell AW3420DW scores with its native G-Sync.

Our main product is the U3818DW from Dell. This ultrawide-monitor offers an incredible amount of space with its 38 inches to have several applications open at once. Thanks to the IPS panel, the monitor has a wide viewing angle and colors are displayed excellently. Especially if you work in the creative field, it is interesting to know that the screen covers the complete sRGB color space and also brings a good Adobe RGB color coverage. Unfortunately, black looks more like a dark gray, thanks to the not-so-good contrast ratio, and HDR is not supported either. One of its best features, however, is Picture-in-Picture, which displays two input signals at once. The USB-C port also keeps the setup minimalistic, since fewer cables are needed.

Ultrawide for an excellent gaming experience: Acer XV340CK

  • Ergonomically adjustable
  • Mediocre contrast ratio
  • No HDMI 2.1 port

The Acer Nitro XV340CK is especially suitable for gamers who want a larger screen. With 34 inches, the monitor offers an enormous amount of space with a resolution of 3440 x 1440 pixels, which corresponds to a UWQHD resolution. A refresh rate of 144Hz, a response time of 1ms and support for VRR, FreeSync and G-Sync compatibility make it very suitable for various games. HDR is supported, but it cannot display a large color gamut. The screen also has 2 USB 3.0 ports and also has the Picture-in-Picture feature, which allows two input signals to be displayed at once.

With native G-Sync: Dell AW3420DW

  • Native G-Sync
  • No HDR
  • Poor contrast ratio
  • No HDMI 2.1 port

If you have an Nvidia graphics card installed in your PC, you will appreciate native G-Sync in the monitor. In this respect, the Dell Alienware AW3420DW comes into question. 34 inches offer a lot of space and the UWQHD resolution provides a clear picture, which is also true to color thanks to the IPS panel. However, the monitor lacks a bit of contrast and black looks more like a dark gray. Gamers should still be happy about a refresh rate of 120Hz, as well as a response time of 2ms. Furthermore, an immersive gaming experience is created thanks to curvature of 1900R.
