The Dell Alienware AW2723DF is priced in the upper midrange and excels in competitive gaming due to its high refresh rate and quick response time, which means less motion blur and smoother gameplay. The 27-inch screen size and 2560 x 1440 resolution provide sharp images, making it suitable for a mix of gaming and productivity. With an IPS panel, colors are vibrant and viewing angles are wide, ideal for digital photo editing. The monitor's stand is adjustable for comfort, but its contrast and brightness are not the best for HDR gaming and media consumption. Although it has a good color gamut coverage, professionals who require exact color accuracy for HDR video or print photo editing might find it lacking. It's equipped with multiple HDMI 2.0 ports and a DisplayPort, offering versatility in connectivity. Overall, this monitor balances performance for gaming and everyday tasks but may fall short for high-end professional creative work or the most immersive HDR experiences. Give Feedback

Jeremy Laird | March 2023
"Put all the pieces together, the high quality IPS image quality, the punchy backlight, the good response and the buttery smooth 280Hz refresh and you have a pretty outstanding gaming panel that's also decent for general computing duties thanks to the 1440p resolution."
