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:

Office Work - screen profile

Office Work

Office Work should be used mostly by users who spend most of the time looking at pieces of text, tables or just surfing. This profile aims to deliver better distinctness and clarity by keeping a flat gamma curve (2.20), native color temperature and perceptually accurate colors.

ASUS ROG GL702VS in-depth review

How is the ASUS ROG Strix GL702VS any different than the ASUS ROG G752VS? That's the first question we asked ourselves when looking at the specs sheet. And in which cases the GL702VS is a more smart investment than the G752VS since both are pretty close to each other price-wise. The same is valid when talking about performance as well. However, the GL702VS is considerably more portable, which in turn results in lowered cooling performance and also skips on some of the features that the G752V[...]

Read the full review

Pros

  • Generally sturdy build
  • Fairly portable for a 17-inch gaming laptop
  • The touchpad is nice despite being too small
  • A wide range of I/O
  • An excellent IPS panel with 75Hz and G-Sync (120Hz version is optional)
  • The panel doesn't use PWM for regulating brightness

Cons

  • Suboptimal choice of materials
  • Keyboard could be better (longer key travel)
  • Poor battery life due to the absence of NVIDIA Optimus support
  • GPU throttles under heavy workload (unconvincing cooling system)
