The 2560 x 1440 resolution remains popular for productivity purposes. Delivering a comfortable pixel density and good amount of desktop ‘real-estate’. The Dell U2722D and U2722D of the UltraSharp series are built around this. The monitors have the simple and minimalistic styling the series is known for. This includes a slender dual-stage (‘InfinityEdge’) bezel design at all 4 sides. With a slim panel border that’s flush with the rest of the screen plus a thin hard plastic outer part. The stand has a low-profile base with satin silver-coloured plastic covering at the top. The OSD (On Screen Display) is controlled by a joystick at the rear of the monitor. A dedicated power button accompanies this.

Minimalistic styling

A 27″ IPS-type panel with 2560 x 1440 (WQHD or 1440p) resolution is employed. This supports a 60Hz refresh rate and has a specified 1000:1 static contrast ratio and 178° horizontal and vertical viewing angles. 10-bit colour is supported (8-bit + FRC assumed), with the monitor factory calibrated with an average DeltaE <2 under the sRGB colour space. A flicker-free WLED backlight delivers a colour gamut of 95% DCI-P3 and a 350 cd/m² typical maximum luminance. This includes a blue peak that's shifted to less energetic wavelengths to potentially enhance viewing comfort. Dell refers to this as ‘ComfortView Plus’. A Low Blue Light (LBL) setting in the form of a ‘5000K’ colour temperature setting is also included. A 4ms grey to grey response time is specified, to be taken with the usual pinch of salt. The included stand attaches using a quick-release mechanism and offers full ergonomic flexibility. It can be removed to reveal 100 x 100mm VESA holes for alternative mounting. A comprehensive array of ports are included, facing facing downwards. These include; AC power input (internal power converter), HDMI 2.0, DP 1.4, DP out (for MST daisy chaining), USB-C upstream (data only), 2 USB 3.2 Gen2 ports, 3.5mm audio out and RJ45 port. Outside of the main port another USB 3.2 Gen2 port is located alongside a USB-C downstream port with 15W PD. In addition to these ports, the ‘DE’ model has the following in the main port area; USB-C (90W PD, DP Alt Mode, upstream data), another USB 3.2 Gen2 port and an RJ45 port.

Comprehensive port selection ('DE')

Further details on the ‘D’ model and ‘DE’ model are available on the manufacturer’s website. The ‘H’ is listed for ~$580 and ‘DE’ for ~$680 USD, but we expect this is elevated due to limited initial availability. A variant of the ‘D’ with different included accessories is also listed in some regions; the U2722DX.
