I'm upgrading my old 27inch Mac for a new Mac mini M2Pro and need to select a new display. Apple Studio is far too expensive. I was considering the Dell Ultrasharp U2723QE (27”). Any useful feedback on this display would be most welcome. Phil
Apple is highly profitable because they still have some outrageous hardware pricing.I'm upgrading my old 27inch Mac for a new Mac mini M2Pro and need to select a new display. Apple Studio is far too expensive.

The specs. here do not even mention Adobe RGB for color gamut. As @Gnits mentioned, do you want a wide gamut monitor? If so, I woudl investigate further before buying.I'm upgrading my old 27inch Mac for a new Mac mini M2Pro and need to select a new display. Apple Studio is far too expensive.

I am horrified by vendors who sell screens and do not make it easy to find the colour gamut of their displays. Displays that only quote 100% sRGB may appear as a decent spec, but sRGB is the smallest colour space. They should clearly state % for AdobeRGB, P3 and sRGB.
Did he say why he thought their screens were unbeatable? Not that I have anything specifically against Apple screens, but I would think that a recommendation from a company employee without some kind of explanation is not especially helpful if one is in the midst of a decision making process, even if their intention is good.I got talking to an Apple employee and asked his opinion. He wanted to know for what I was going to use the display. He said that they normally suggest buyers look at all the the other display manufacturers if they are doing general work, but for photography specifically he said the Studio Display was unbeatable. I’m not sure that I’d say unbeatable, but I did go for the Studio and am glad I did. It is a great display for photography and it has things like a great sound system and built in web cam with center stage, and a bunch of ports. I’m happy I went down that route and was able to afford it.
its not the specific hardware quality I was referring to as much as the items that @Conrad Chavez mentioned in his posts above (e.g. color gamut, display accuracy, backlighting, etc.). To say a product is unbeatable, or whatever superlative one wants to use, without say why, IMHO, is not really bringing much to the discussion, especially if you are an employee of the the company. Had they mentioned the extremely low delta measurements on monitor accuracy, especially in the higher gamut color spaces, for example, that might be something that would help convince me as to their advantage for photography.@Ken - iFixit did a teardown of the Studio Display not long after it was launched. They said: "This is exactly the same display as the 5K iMac, and while a 60 hertz LCD isn’t much to write home about these days, at least Apple has a native 5K display [made by LG] without the computer attached!"

It also mentions “remarkable gradient handling” (no banding). They did say the white balance and gamma are not quite as good in the full P3 gamut mode. But it sounds more than acceptable overall. Tom’s Hardware also reported a nice low delta-E for this display.“The accuracy before calibration is simply exceptional. There are hardly any inaccuracies to the colors and white balance in the sRGB mode, and the color temperature is nearly spot-on with the 6500K target.…The accuracy after calibration is remarkable as you won't notice any issues, but it isn't that much better than before calibration.”
