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 ZenBook UX310UQ in-depth review

ASUS' ZenBook UX series has always attracted a lot of attention and it's easy to see why. All of the ultrabooks from this lineup offer a fairly powerful hardware combined with excellent battery life, good multimedia capabilities in a thin and light package. What's not to like, right? Well, just like everything life, the ZenBook UX310UQ isn't for everyone and it really depends on what you are willing to sacrifice along the way. Just like the 14-inch UX410UQ, the 13-inch UX310UQ offers an U[...]

Pros

  • Premium (all-aluminum) and solid build
  • Light and portable
  • Decent keyboard, good touchpad
  • Excellent screen
  • No PWM above 100 cd/m2
  • Offers the upgradability of a 15-incher (M.2 PCIe NVMe SSD + 2.5-inch HDD/SSD and one RAM slot)
  • Good battery life
  • Great value

Cons

  • The cooling fan doesn't stop spinning even at idle
  • Not the best cooling solution for a CPU and discrete GPU configuration (applies to the 940MX configurations only)
  • No compelling reason to opt for the 13-inch variant - the 14-inch UX410UQ is the smarter choice

CPU Performance: Intel Core i7-7500U

GPU Performance: NVIDIA GeForce 940MX (2GB DDR3)
