Health-Guard

The first and most important profile (in our opinion) is the Health-Guard – when being used with our LM Profiles application, Health-Guard eliminates the harmful Pulse-Width Modulation (PWM) and reduces the negative Blue Light which affects our eyes and body.

Since it’s custom tailored for every panel, it manages to keep the colors perceptually accurate (they may seem strange at first but after a few minutes our brain will start recognizing them as accurate ones – that’s how Health-Guard differs from alternatives like f.lux).

Office Work and Web Design

The second profile type is Office Work and Web Design. Business tasks are various, most often related to a set of office-targeted applications. Sometimes, working outside is necessary. In such cases color accuracy is paramount, but so is image clarity, brightness, contrast etc. A piece of text must be legible, graphics and histograms must be clear. All of this is precisely what this profile is for. If you’re doing office work, web design, or simply value color accuracy when browsing the Internet, this is the profile to use!

It’s important to note that not all displays are suited for Web design – our profiles can not compensate for insufficient sRGB coverage (most TN panels have this problem), so you you might want to check our detailed color tests in the respective product reviews we’ve done if you want to use the machine for professional work.

Gaming and Movie Nights

Gaming is among the main driving forces for the fast clip of hardware development. Gamers are well-aware of the fact that a poor image can ruin the entire experience.

The same goes for watching movies. Imagine sitting down for a nice movie after a long day, and barely making out what’s on the screen. The ‘Gaming and movie night’ profile can make a huge difference. We strongly recommend you use it, since it’s gamma curve is specifically tuned to reveal details in the dark sections of the image.

Here’s what this amounts to:

Acer Aspire V 15 Nitro Black Edition (VN7-593G) in-depth review

With the 17-inch Aspire V 17 Nitro BE out of the way, it's time to take a closer look at the smaller and more modest 15-inch V 15 Nitro BE. We expect it to perform much like its bigger sibling but also provide a different experience in a few key areas. The hardware is identical so performance-wise the notebook didn't surprise us but we had different readings on the battery tests, display tests and also some troubles with the cooling capabilities. But as we said in our previous review, the[...]

Pros

  • Overall good build quality
  • Thin and light - good portability
  • Good keyboard
  • Slightly above average battery runtimes
  • Bright IPS screen with wide sRGB coverage and high contrast
  • Plenty of I/O including USB-C 3.1 Gen 2 with Thunderbolt support

Cons

  • Unsatisfactory cooling solution (CPU and GPU throttle under heavy workload)
  • The cooling fans constantly spin
  • Our unit had a wobbly touchpad
  • The screen uses PWM from 0 to 99% brightness (our Health-Guard profile takes care of that)

CPU Performance: Intel Core i7-7700HQ

GPU Performance: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 (6GB GDDR5)
