Having 2560 x 1440 pixels spread across a 27″ screen provides a good amount of desktop-real estate and clarity. The Dell P2723D of the ‘P’ series offers this, with a focus on a comfortable and productive experience. The usual modern and unfussy design is used, with satin-finish silver plastic for the stand base and a matte black plastic bottom bezel. The top and side bezels are dual-stage, with a slender panel border flush with the rest of the screen plus a slim hard plastic outer part. The OSD (On Screen Display) is controlled by a joystick at the rear of the screen, towards the right side as viewed from the front. A dedicated power button is also included.
A 27″ 2560 x 1440 (WQHD or 1440p) IPS-type panel is employed, with support for a 60Hz refresh rate. Other aspects to note include a matte anti-glare screen surface, 1000:1 static contrast ratio, 178°/178° viewing angles and 8-bit colour support. A flicker-free WLED backlight provides a 350 cd/m² typical maximum luminance and 99% sRGB colour gamut. This is a ‘ComfortView Plus’ model, with the blue light peak shifted to less energetic wavelengths, potentially aiding viewing comfort (TÜV Rheinland certified hardware solution). A ‘ComfortView’ Low Blue Light (LBL) setting is also included to reduce blue light of all wavelengths, providing a warmer a look to the image and promoting a more relaxing viewing experience. A 5ms grey to grey response time is specified, but as usual don’t pay too much attention to this figure. The stand attaches centrally via a quick-release mechanism and can be removed to make way for an alternative 100 x 100mm VESA compatible solution, if preferred. The ports face downwards and include; AC power input (internal power converter), HDMI 1.4, DP 1.2 and 2 USB 3.2 Gen1 ports (plus upstream). 2 further USB 3.2 ports are located at the bottom of the screen, beneath and to the left (as viewed from in front) of the main port area for easy access.
Further details can be found on the manufacturer’s website. The monitor has an initial listing price of ~$550 USD.
