Best 2nd monitor for Alienware Laptops (17 and 18 inch models)

  • Hi,

    Often, some customers ask what would be good extension monitors for Alienware 17 and 18 laptops. Does DELL have any IPS-type monitors for gaming, please?

    Thank you.

  • Hey Eddie!

    Most of the UltraSharp monitors have IPS.  Here's a link to the dell.com page where they're listed.  If your customers are looking for a second screen there's some nice large ones, as well as a few dual monitor setups that would be sweet gaming setups.

    Hope this helps!

    I would like to add on this case, all those monitors are IPS however their response time is a bit average to be considered "gaming" monitors. So far I checked:

    U2212HM response time 8 ms gray to gray
    U2412M response time 8 ms gray to gray
    U2413 response time 6 ms gray to gray
    U2913WM 8 ms with overdrive (gray to gray)

    As Emily mentions due to the size and IPS properties they will look nice on a gaming setup however our Alienware OPTX AW2210 had 2 ms response time and 120hz refresh rate if my memory serves well.

    I'm really hoping we re-introduce the OPTX series monitors since our competitors (ASUS, BENQ) offer gaming monitors with the features mentioned above. So I sugest OP to check all the monitors on the page and try to find the one with the lowest response time.

  • Thank you Jose! Very helpful!
