    So I'm trying to get an Alienware and have two options: Alienware 13 r3 oled and Alienware 15 r3 4k.

    Has anyone seen both and have on idea on which looks better?

    Thanks for reading.

    The oled does look better, but it's likely to get dead pixels much faster than the 4k panel.

    Having had multiple Samsung galaxy phones and a Vita, OLED is just godly. I can only imagine how good it looks on a 13" panel. I rather have OLED then 4k honestly.

    I've not used the 15 R3's 4K display but based on other ones I've used I would choose the OLED.

    Does it seem to produce a more clearer image?

    How does OLED seem to compare to other types of screen in your opinion?

    OLED is over saturated, the blacks are very deep and nice and the image is really colorful, but the color representation is terrible. Once you have an OLED you NEED to calibrate it, it's mandatory. It's as I said, OLED is better than the standard LED screen u're used to see, but it does like to break fairly easy.

    If you mind dead pixels a lot and want something that lasts really long, then go for something that has a great screen and calibrate it, once you did that it looks very good as well. You honestly won't notice that much of a difference when for example using a good calibrated panel for 1 day, then sleep 1 night and then use a calibrated OLED screen, you will notice that the colors are different, but you won't really consider either worse or better, just different.
