Dell continues to offer its users an optimal 27-inch Quad HD monitor P2723D with a flexible rotating stand. It comes with a 2K resolution, IPS panel, clean edges, and 4 USB ports for easily connecting to multiple peripheral devices. It is one of Dell’s latest monitor models that was launched in early 2022. So we’ll learn more about this Dell P2723D review below.
Referring to Dell monitors, you will immediately think of the company’s UltraSharp line of monitors, which are particularly well-known in the world of graphics and design for their attractive design, high-end display quality with many useful features. However, there is also a “P Series” monitor line aimed at the office world, which also bears many similarities with the UltraSharp line, but with graphics-specific features stripped to focus on essential features.
Dell P2723D review: design
We will begin this Dell P2723D review with its design as it is the main highlight of this monitor. Dell’s monitors have always had a distinctive “serious youth” design that’s hard to confuse, and the Dell P2723D remains faithful to that tradition. The square design, matte black color covers the entire screen but is equally excellent thanks to the attractive silver base.
The 3-side border is neatly created, with the background plate pushed even closer to the frame for a more vivid image. Only the bottom edge of the screen is still a bit thick. It’s a detail that Dell has always “saved” for the high-end UltraSharp line, which often has thin borders on all four sides, which are very drawable.
Like other Dell monitor models released in 2022, the base on the Dell P2723D is refreshed compared to the previous model, a trapezoid with one surface, the larger beveled bottom. The stand is neat, takes up little space, has a solid metal core, and helps the screen stand firmly on the table.
Flexibility is a Dell monitor’s strength, and in the Dell P2723D, it is driven when the stand not only allows for a height change of 150mm or closer to the table, tilting the screen back and forth, but it also allows it to rotate to the left. Turns to the right of 90 degrees both horizontally and vertically.
The ability to rotate the screen vertically is suitable for those who need to program, design, or edit videos of Tiktok, Reels, and Shorts.
On the P2723D, when rotating the screen vertically, you can always go to the screen’s menu to rotate the displayed content, no longer needed to adjust in Windows. It’s a new feature added by Dell to make vertical screen rotation more convenient.
If there’s no need to use a stand or desk space doesn’t allow, the Dell P2723D can also be wall-mounted according to VESA standards.
The monitor stand also has a wire slot to keep your workspace neat. It’s also simple to mount and remove the stand with just one button, even without the need for a screwdriver because a screw lever is available.
The back of the screen integrates all the control keys into a single button, in the form of a joystick. The screen’s control menus are scientifically and intuitively arranged, making it quick and convenient to fine-tune parameters and select features.

Dell P2723D review: connectivity and features
The back of the Dell P2723D keeps the minimalist design true to Dell’s style with the familiar matte black plastic material. The connection ports are centered near the base, facing down on the table, so attaching the cable is a bit tricky.
The number of ports on this monitor is modest, with 4 USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type-A 5Gbps downstream ports and 1 USB Type port in addition to 1 HDMI 2.0 port and 1 DisplayPort 1.2 port (both supporting the HDCP 1.4 standard). -A 3.2 Gen 1 upstream.
So you will have only 2 ports for outputting images, but up to 4 ports for transferring data, connecting to peripherals like mouse, keyboard. Notably, the 2 USB-A ports are located right next to the screen, which is very convenient when you need to attach a memory card reader, portable hard drive, or USB – things you often need to take apart. it occurs. Unfortunately, the Dell P2723D doesn’t have a USB-C port for quickly connecting to a new-generation laptop, which helps output images, charge the battery, and transfer data.
In terms of features, as it is a task-oriented monitor model, Dell equips the P2723D with several optimal features for work such as Comfort View Plus to help protect the eyes and protect the eyes with a flicker-free screen. To keep comfortable, reducing eye-damaging blue light, while keeping colors stable. Comfort View Plus is a combination of flicker-free anti-flicker and blue light filters to limit eye strain. Apart from this, optimum modes such as watching movies, and playing games are also present for relaxation and entertainment during stressful working hours.
This monitor also allows for deep fine-tuning of colors via built-in menus, or users can install Dell Display Manager software to fine-tune from Windows without manipulating the hardware keys on the screen.
With Dell Display Manager, you can also quickly adjust brightness and contrast, and use the Easy Arrange function to optimally arrange application windows in split, triple, or even split 8. Dell Display Manager has up to 38 different split-screen settings for you to freely choose depending on your needs.
In addition, this software also has an auto-restore feature, which will automatically revert the application window to the preset position even if the screen is suddenly turned off.
In terms of parameters, Dell P2723D has a size of 27 inches, 2K QHD resolution (2560 x 1440 pixels), 16: 9 ratio, 60Hz refresh rate, 8ms response speed, anti-glare IPS panel, standard brightness 350 nit standard, 1000:1 contrast ratio, 99% sRGB color gamut display.
These parameters are almost on par with the high-end model Dell UltraSharp U2722DE, so the display quality is fully guaranteed. But note that Dell’s P series doesn’t have color calibration from the factory, so if you need a higher color standard, you’ll have to do the color balance yourself.
The Dell P2723D still maintains its style on a Dell monitor with very good display quality, sharpness, detail, high brightness, vivid and true colors, and 2K resolution, thanks to an IPS panel with a light matte anti-glare coating. The QHD resolution on a 27-inch screen delivers a pixel density so high that you won’t see pixels when sitting at a typical distance of about 60cm or more from the screen. It’s also comfortable enough to split the screen into 2 or 3 application windows to run multiple apps in parallel, increasing multitasking capabilities.
As a monitor for office and home work, it’s not hard to understand that the Dell P2723D comes with a 60Hz refresh rate panel. The screen, on the other hand, has 99% sRGB color coverage, so it can meet both semi-professional photo and video editing needs, rather than just working with Office applications or browsing the web. This monitor allows deeper fine-tuning of colors via built-in menus, or users can install Dell Display Manager software to fine-tune from Windows.
The default response rate of this monitor is 8ms and can be increased to 5ms in Fast mode. However, you should only use fast mode while playing the game, whereas, in normal use, Fast ode easily causes ghosting while scrolling the mouse.
After hours of hard work, watching movies or even playing light games on the Dell P2723D is a satisfying experience. The optimum mode for watching movies, and playing games are fully present.
For $399.99 on Amazon.com or £262.18 on Amazon.co.uk, the Dell P2723D maintains its pace when it comes to offering a 27-inch 2K monitor with good display quality, a flexible stand, an eye-catching design, and a sufficient number of connections for most needs.
At the end of the Dell P2723D review we would like to say that this is a screen that is aimed at office people, people who do graphics, design, video editing and content creation, they also need to be able to use this screen in those jobs only. There are a minor changes that are needed.
