It is not necessary to spend large sums of money when you want to have a monitor with “Premium” specifications , since more and more brands offer alternatives that are positioned halfway between the medium and high ranges. One of them is Dell, who has a complete catalog of quality screens, such as the Dell SE2723DS.
DELL S Series SE2723DS is a “Premium” monitor that allows you to enjoy multiple conventional activities, whether for work environments or entertainment and gaming. Thanks to its screen with QHD resolution, as well as the presence of AMD FreeSync technology and eye protection through ComfortView Plus, it manages to rise above the market average without any problems.

Choice of design and connectivity
Starting with its aesthetics, it is clear that Dell has not wanted to draw too much attention to this model as if it has been appreciated in other of its previous releases, although it does not stop offering good sensations at first sight. Here the great advantage in its favor is found in the reduction of its bezels around the panel.
While the bottom bezel is slightly thicker, the remaining three bezels are ultra-thin to reduce distractions and improve the visible screen-to-body ratio. Behind there is nothing out of the ordinary with a completely black smooth surface that also responds to a VESA mount in case you want to fix it directly on the wall with a third-party accessory.
It is worth mentioning that Dell SE2723DS comes with a rectangular base that is quite robust in its external lines to help better stability on the desktop, while its support is capable of changing the viewing angles between -5º to 21º as well as up to 10 cm your height to find the ideal viewing position.
In terms of connectivity, there is good news in the availability of two HDMI inputs to allow easier switching between computers and consoles without having to disconnect cables, although its 1.4 standard is not one of the most recent in the industry. There is also a DisplayPort 1.2 port missing for those looking for a PC variant and a classic 3.5mm headphone jack.
Image quality guaranteed
Turning to the most relevant specifications of the DELL S Series SE2723DS, it all starts with the inclusion of a 27-inch IPS panel with a native resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels , which means sharper images with up to 1.77 times more detail than what is normally seen in Full HD content.
The presence of a compatible refresh rate of up to 75 Hz , response times of up to 5 ms, native contrast ratio of 1000:1 and maximum brightness levels of up to 350 cd/m² are also appreciated . To ensure color consistency no matter what position you view it from, there are 178° viewing angles/both horizontally and vertically, plus anti-reflection capability with In-Plane Switching technology.
Moving on to the unusual benefits, we must point out ComfortView Plus technology, an integrated and always-on screen function that limits harmful blue light emissions without compromising color accuracy. For those who spend many hours in front of the screen every day, this can mean a great contribution to the protection of visual health.
Finally, for video game environments, the addition of AMD FreeSync technology is appreciated, that is, superior synchronization with graphics cards from this manufacturer that allows you to always be in contact to avoid any negative details in real-time images, such as delays, “ tearing” or “ghosting”.
Comparison with Dell Alienware AW3420DW
As expected, despite the good sensations that this model gives, it remains one step below the most outstanding monitors of the manufacturer. For example, a possible jump in quality is the Dell Alienware AW3420DW , which not only increases the size of its screen to 34 inches but also offers a curved design with an ultra-wide panel that fits a 21: 9 aspect ratio.
Although in the end both teams reach a vertical resolution of 1440 pixels, the Alienware is capable of raising the refresh rate up to 120 Hz , while offering NVIDIA G-SYNC technology and even an RGB lighting system on its striking later design that logically places it directly in the most demanding gaming field on the market.
