The 17-inch 2-in-1 solution from Dell appears to have more than one selling point and the display is definitely one of them. Our tests show that the IPS panel is capable of reproducing fairly accurate colors and has all the needed properties for an excellent multimedia experience. The profile packages contain 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 extent.
The Dell Inspiron 17 7779 has a Full HD IPS panel with 90% sRGB color gamut coverage, extremely high contrast ratio (1300:1), high maximum brightness (353 cd/m2) and optimal color temperature – 6500K.
Since our profiles are tailored for each individual display model, this article and its respective profile package are meant for the Dell Inspiron 17 7779 with 17.3″ panel manufactured by AU Optronics with model number B173HW01 V.0 (Y147T, AUO109D) featuring FHD (1920×1080) resolution and the machine can be found at Amazon.com: Dell Inspiron 17 7779.

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. The notebook’s screen isn’t suitable for color-sensitive work but it’s more than enough for good multimedia experience. Our profile, however, improves the color accuracy as much as possible.
We’ve also adjusted the gamma curve and white balance to fit the standards.
Gaming and Movie Nights
You can take advantage of the Gaming and Movie Nights profile, which will improve the overall visibility – especially in darker areas of the image – during gaming and watching movies (you can see an example here).
As for the Health-Guard profile, it reduces the blue light impact and eliminates the PWM. However, since the panel doesn’t use PWM from 55 cd/m2 and above, the Health-Guard profile will come in handy only for reducing the negative blue light emissions.
