The budget-friendly Acer Aspire F 15 doesn’t offer the best image quality out there but it will get the job done when it comes to office work and general browsing. In the pack below, you will find the usual Health-Guard, Office work / Web design and Gaming / Movie Nights profiles, each of which will improve the overall image quality in certain aspects. You can read more about them here and how to use them. We also suggest reading our dedicated article regarding blue light emissions and PWM and how our custom profiles help eliminate both to certain extend.
The Acer Aspire F 15 (F5-572G) has a TN panel with exceptionally low contrast, fairly narrow sRGB coverage but doesn’t use PWM for regulating screen brightness above 55 cd/m2. However, our profiles will improve a good portion of those drawbacks and will also reduce the blue light emissions.
Since our profiles are tailored for each individual display model, this article and its respective profile package is meant for Acer Aspire F 15 (F5-572G) with 15.6″ INNOLUX N156HGE-EAB (FHD, 1920 x 1080) TN and the machine can be found at Amazon.com: Acer Aspire F 15 (F5-572G)

In addition to receiving efficient and health-friendly profiles, by buying LaptopMedia's products you also support the development of our labs, where we test devices in order to produce the most objective reviews possible.
Office work / Web design
If your field is office work or web design, or you just want your monitor's color set to be as accurate as possible for the Internet color space, this profile will prove to be useful.
Gaming or Movie nights
We developed this profile especially for occasions on which you spend a lot of time in front of your monitor with some games or watching movies – it will be easier for you to discern fine nuances in the dark.
This profile reduces the negative impact of pulsation and the blue spectrum, securing your eyes and body. You still get a pitch-perfect color image, albeit slightly warmer.
Office Work / Web Design
This profile aims to deliver the most accurate colors possible in the sRGB gamut – the colors used on the Web. That makes it suitable for Office work and, in some cases, for Web Design. However, this display doesn’t have the needed properties for color-sensitive work so we suggest looking for a laptop with an IPS panel that has a wider sRGB coverage and better contrast ratio. Anyway, we successfully bring the average DeltaE 2000 (color accuracy, lower is better) down from the whopping 11.8 to 3.9. Let’s see how that looks in the two graphs below…
Along with the color adjustments, we were also able to tweak the white point and also made some corrections on the gamma curve.
Gaming and Movie Nights
It’s probably not the best choice for multimedia and gaming but our profiles ensure slightly better visibility. Gaming and Movie Nights profile lets you see more details in the darkest areas (you can see an example here).
As for the Health-Guard profile, it reduces the Blue Light impact and eliminates PWM to some extent. Since the notebook is missing PWM above 55 cd/m2 brightness, this profile still comes in handy for reducing the blue light emissions.
