The Dell S3422DWG is a very good 34 inch 1440p ultrawide monitor with a VA panel. It has good contrast and amazing black uniformity, so it looks great in a dark room. It's not too shabby in a bright room, either, as it has good reflection handling and great peak brightness in SDR. It's mainly marketed as a gaming monitor. It delivers a great gaming experience with an excellent response time at the max refresh rate, fantastic input lag, and support for FreeSync variable refresh rate technology. Although it's not officially G-SYNC compatible, it's also possible to still use G-SYNC over DisplayPort, but unfortunately, it doesn't work properly if your frame rate drops below 60fps. Sadly, like most VA panels, the image degrades at an angle, so it's not the best for co-op gaming.

Our Verdict

7.9 Mixed Usage

The Dell S3422DWG is a very good monitor overall. It's a great gaming monitor with low input lag and a fast response time. It's good for office use, but the image degrades at an angle, and it has limited ergonomics. It's very good for watching videos or media creators, with good contrast and a superb color gamut. Finally, it's a good monitor for gaming in HDR, but it's not bright enough for a true cinematic HDR experience, and it doesn't have a local dimming feature.

Pros
  • Good contrast.
  • Great peak brightness in SDR.
  • Fantastic low input lag.
Cons
  • Image appears washed out at an angle.
  • Stand can't swivel.
7.6 Office

The Dell S3422DWG is a good monitor for office use. It has excellent screen real estate, great for multitasking. It also has great connectivity, including a built-in USB hub, and it supports Picture-in-Picture and Picture-by-Picture, meaning that you can display two sources at once. It has good reflection handling and great peak brightness, so glare shouldn't be an issue. For work that requires accurate colors, it has a superb SDR color gamut and decent accuracy out of the box, but there's no sRGB clamp.

Pros
  • Excellent gray uniformity.
  • Great peak brightness in SDR.
  • Superb SDR color gamut.
  • Fantastic low input lag.
Cons
  • Image appears washed out at an angle.
  • Stand can't swivel.

The Dell S3422DWG is a very good monitor for media creation. The large, high-resolution screen makes it easier to see more of your work at once. It has a superb SDR color gamut, but coverage of the Adobe RGB color space might be a bit too low for some content creators. Unfortunately, the image washes out at an angle and the stand can't swivel, so it's not the best if you often have to share your screen with someone else.

Pros
  • Excellent gray uniformity.
  • Good contrast.
  • Great peak brightness in SDR.
  • Superb SDR color gamut.
Cons
  • Image appears washed out at an angle.

The Dell S3422DWG looks very similar to the other 2021 Dell gaming monitors, including the Dell S3222DGM. It has a fairly plain design that looks great in any setting. The stand is okay, with a slightly different design than previous generations. Instead of a full RGB backlight, there's a fixed-color blue ambient downlight feature on the bottom bezel.

Swivel Range No swivel
Tilt Range -22.5° to 5°

The stand has an okay height adjustment and a fantastic tilt range, so it shouldn't be too difficult to place it in an ideal viewing position. It can't swivel, and due to the ultrawide, curved screen, it can't rotate to portrait orientation. The ergonomic adjustments feel smooth and are easy to adjust.

Design
Back
Wall Mount VESA 100x100

The back is pretty plain, with no bias-lighting or other advanced features. The inputs are hidden beneath the VESA mounting point, so they won't get in the way if you're planning on mounting it. There's a hole in the stand for basic cable management.

Build Quality

The Dell S3422DWG has decent build quality. Like the other 2021 Dell monitors we've tested, including the Dell S2722DGM, it's entirely plastic. There's a bit of flex along the bottom bezel, but no bubbling or areas of significant concern. The stand is okay, but there's a bit of wobble due to the weight of the display.

The Dell S3422DWG has good peak brightness in HDR. It's not bright enough to deliver a true cinematic HDR experience when watching movies, but it's good enough for gaming. There's some variation in peak brightness in different scenes, but it's not noticeable. It significantly exceeds the peak brightness needed for its VESA DisplayHDR 400 certification.

We measured the HDR peak brightness in the 'DisplayHDR 400' Picture Mode and Brightness set to max. The peak brightness can change depending on which mode you're using.

As expected for a VA panel, the Dell S3422DWG has a mediocre horizontal viewing angle. Gamma starts to shift immediately as you move off-center, causing the image to wash out. Colors wash out quickly but retain their hue even at a wide angle. The curved screen helps compensate for the degrading image, but our testing doesn't show the effects of this, as we measure viewing angles from the center of the screen.

The Dell S3422DWG has excellent gray uniformity. The sides of the screen are a bit darker than the center, and there's a dark horizontal band running across the center of the screen, but it's not too noticeable. There's very little dirty screen effect. Near-black scenes look even better, with no significant issues. Gray uniformity can vary between units, but it's rare for modern monitors to have any issues like this.

The Dell S3422DWG that we bought has decent accuracy out of the box, but this can vary between units. The white balance is decent, but brighter scenes are a bit off, and the color temperature is a bit cool. Gamma doesn't follow the sRGB target curve, and most scenes are too bright. Unfortunately, most colors are oversaturated, and there's no sRGB clamp.

The response time at the max refresh rate is excellent. We recommend the 'Super Fast' Response Time setting, as it delivers the best overall results. There's a bit of overshoot with this mode, but it's not very noticeable. The 'Extreme' setting has a faster response time, so there's a shorter blur trail behind fast-moving objects, but there's significantly more overshoot, and there's a visible trail of inverse ghosting. Like most monitors with a VA panel, the Dell S3422DWG has a slower response time in dark scenes, resulting in black smear in some content.

Note: There's also a fourth response time setting, 'MPRT', but this isn't actually a response time setting, it just enables the black frame insertion feature. This setting is only available if the refresh rate is between 100Hz and 144Hz.

The Dell S3422DWG has an optional backlight strobing feature that can be enabled by setting the Response Time to 'MPRT'. Enabling this feature locks the overdrive settings. It has a narrow range of refresh rates that support the feature, which is a bit disappointing. The backlight timing seems to be pretty good, so there's little crosstalk. Sadly, like most monitors, this feature can't be used at the same time as the variable refresh rate feature. The scoring is based only on the refresh rate range supported by the BFI feature, not how well it works.

The Dell S3422AWG has a fast refresh rate, and it supports FreeSync variable refresh rate (VRR) technology. It has a wide refresh rate range for VRR, ensuring a nearly-tear free gaming experience from an AMD graphics card.

Although it's not officially certified as G-SYNC Compatible, it's possible to enable G-SYNC when using this monitor with an NVIDIA graphics card, but only over DisplayPort. Unfortunately, there are some issues when using this monitor in G-SYNC compatible mode. As long as your frame rate stays above 60fps, you shouldn't have any issues. If it drops below that, we noticed significant flickering that got worse as the frame rate decreased. We've also seen a few reports of a screen door effect in some games, but we didn't notice this issue on our unit.

The Dell S3422DWG has fantastic low input lag, resulting in a very responsive gaming experience. Enabling VRR increases the input lag a little bit, but it's not really noticeable.

Unfortunately, we couldn't measure the 10-bit HDR input lag because the highest refresh rate for 10-bit HDR over HDMI on this monitor is 60Hz, and we don't have the necessary tools to measure it at its max refresh rate over a DisplayPort connection. We don't expect HDR to increase the input lag.

There are two sets of inputs on the Dell S3422DWG. The main inputs are located on the back of the monitor and face down. There's a second set of connectors underneath the bottom bezel, near the Dell logo. That panel has two USB ports and a headphone jack, which is a nice convenience feature.

There's some confusion over the bandwidth of the DisplayPort connectors on the monitor, as Dell's website lists both 1.2 and 1.4. We checked the supported resolutions and confirmed that they must be 1.4 ports.

Differences Between Sizes And Variants

We tested the 34 inch Dell S3422DWG, which is part of Dell's S Series of gaming monitors. It's the only size available in an ultrawide format, but there are other models in Dell's S Series lineup, some of which are listed below. There's also a non-gaming variant of this model, known as the Dell S3422DW. It has a similar form factor, but a lower refresh rate and a completely different design.
