Consensus

our Verdict

This monitor is excellent for office use and media creation. The Dell U2723QE boasts strong image quality, with a brightness of 372 nits, a contrast ratio of 2002:1, and a 100% sRGB color gamut, which sits in the top 25% of computer monitors. These factors allow it to perform in brightly lit rooms and present vibrant images accurately. It also has wide viewing angles, which are handy for office use, allowing groups to view screens from off-angle positions.

However, the monitor has a very low response time of 20.7 ms, which ranks among the bottom 10% of computer monitors.

ReasonS to Buy

  • Good image quality
    • The Dell U2723QE’s 4k resolution caters to office use and media creation. The display effectively displays dynamic content, given its tested brightness of 372 nits and a contrast ratio of 2002:1, ranking in the top 25% of our tested computer monitors list.

    • Also, at sRGB 100%%, the monitor displays a vibrant and bright array of colors, great for watching a wide range of content, and ranks higher than about 75% of competing computer monitors.

    • Additionally, the monitor is equipped with an IPS Black panel, producing deeper blacks than traditional IPS technology.

  • Wide Viewing Angles
    • For effective screen sharing and collaboration, the minot has wide viewing angles, allowing others to view on-screen images from the sides.

  • Great build quality
    • The monitor is sturdy and well-made, presenting no design issues

Reason to Avoid

  • Subpar refresh rate
    • The monitor can face issues with displaying text clarity, given its native refresh rate of 60 Hz. Additionally, the computer lacks certain gaming features, like variable refresh rate, which help in this department.

  • Poor response time
    • The monitor experiences motion blur during fast-paced scenes, given its slow total response time of 20.7 ms, which is in the bottom 10% of our tested computer monitors. This can cause blurriness and degraded visuals during gaming or scrolling extensive documents.

The Dell U2723QEl and Dell S2722QC are both high-quality 4k monitors. The U2723QEl has a wider color gamut when using it for HDR. However, if you plan to use the computer in a bright-lit room, the S2722QC has better reflection handling.

The ASUS ProArt PA148CTV is a lower quality but more portable monitor compared to the Dell U2723QEl. In terms of display, the Dell U2723QEl has a 2002:1 contrast, compared to the ASUS’s subpar 985:1 contrast. Additionally, the Dell has a better peak brightness, measuring in at 372 nits compared to the ASUS’s 281 nits. Both monitors have slow response times and lack features like variable refresh rates, making them less than ideal for gaming. For a look into other competitors, we have a Pixio PX7 Prime review.

The Dell U2723QEl is an updated version of the Dell UltraSharp U2720Q, with more features and a better-quality display. Two main features that the U2723QEl has, which the U2720Q lacks, are a KVM switch and a larger USB hub. The U2723QEl also supports daisy chaining, and the U2720Q does not. Lastly, the U2723QEl has superior contrast, viewing angles, and black levels. For more insight into a great office monitor, read our LG 32UN500 W review.
