    Well I have a 4 year warranty bro so I'm not concerned about the cost of replacing it.

    To be honst with you, out of all the laptops I've owned, there are only 2 screens that I still remember for how good they were

    1) Sony VAIO SZ Premium, back in 2007, that 13inch screen blew me away, it was glossy which I prefer, the colors were so vibrant and looking at it I could almost feel things were REAL. It was mind blowing
    2) Any MacBook retina screen blows all these gloomy/washed out anti-glare screens out of the water. I hate anti-glare screens, they are so dull in comparison.

    I anticipate Alienware will eventually make it an option. The Razer Blade will be receiving an OLED option in the future, I’m sure Alienware will do the same. It is simply the best display period, only thing that comes close are older laptops like Sony VGN and Alienware M17x R2 that has very very expensive RGB backlit panels (vs standard white LED + yellow phosphor coating). RGBLED went out of fashion because it was extremely expensive to produce.

    Area-51M is still a 17.3” panel with thin bezels.

    M18x screen is still bigger. I’ll make a comparison of them later.

    OLED is coming to AW m15. No news about m17 and Area-51M yet.

    Nope just a standard IPS panel. It’s not bad though. I think with calibration it’ll look good.

    When I get my taptop, I'll do a calibration using my Spyder Elite colorimeter and share it with y'all for free [​IMG]

    Thanks, check the color gamut ratings as well.

    Every display is different so we’ll see how yours works out for us. I want to actually invest in one, I could calibrate all my computers.

    yes, best purchase I ever made, worth every penny since you can calibrate unlimited amount of displays, even your neighbors' taptops :rolleyes::eek:

    this is the one I have:

    Can it be used from a computer to calibrate a TV?

    Hi, I just purchased an Alienware 18 for repair (not sure if it's 2013, 2014, or 2015). What exactly do you mean by your quoted line above? Why do you say the 18 is the least reliable of the three? I don't know much about the 18 line. :)
