Alienware 25-inch gaming monitor has a native 240Hz refresh rate

At E3 Alienware isn’t just showing off powerful new gaming PC systems. It has a pair of high performance gaming monitors on show and has debuted a range of gaming keyboards and mice. For RGB enthusiasts all the peripherals feature Alienware’s AlienFX lighting, which works in concert with over 150 games titles.


Alienware has been demonstrating a 25-inch gaming monitor with either Nvidia G-Sync (AW2518H) or AMD FreeSync, (AW2518HF) support built-in. Whichever you choose the base specs are the same. The monitor is said to “offer fast, responsive gameplay with virtually no input lag, at an extremely rapid 1 ms panel response time.” Furthermore, it boasts a headline max refresh rate of 240Hz.

These monitors come with three gaming preset modes, full adjustability, single-diecast stand legs, and can provide an almost seamless panoramic multi-monitor view thanks to the ultra-thin bezels.

Alienware has based both monitors upon 1920 x 1080 pixel TN panels with 400nits brightness and 1000:1 contrast ratio. They will become available first in the US, from today, priced at $499 (FreeSync) and $699 (G-Sync).


Dell is showing off both the Alienware Advanced Gaming Keyboard, and the Alienware Pro Gaming Keyboard. Both models feature KaiHua brown mechanical keys, dedicated macro keys, backlighting, multi lighting zones, anti-ghosting and n-key rollover. Prices are $89.99 and $119.99 respectively.


The Alienware Advanced Gaming Mouse has three quick switchable DPI settings and nine customisable buttons. The Alienware Elite Gaming Mouse adds swappable grips, five switchable DPI settings, up to 13 programmable buttons, an adjustable palm rest, and four variable levels of weight adjustment. These rodents are priced at $49.99 and $89.99 respectively and are available immediately.
