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.

Lenovo Flex 5 (14″) in-depth review

With the higher price of the new Yoga 520, compared to the older Yoga 510, we get not only apparent visual improvement but also a much better chassis, more comfortable input devices, improved portability and, of course, more powerful hardware. This is the stepping stone to the Yoga 720 and sells for roughly $150 less with the same processor. Interestingly, though, the trade-offs that come with the lower price tag aren't as many as you might think and maybe not that important to some users. [...]

Pros

  • Good build quality
  • Great input devices
  • Decent IPS display for the more budget-oriented configurations
  • The panel doesn't use PWM for regulating screen brightness
  • A lot of upgradability options for a 14-inch device (2.5-inch HDD + M.2 SSD slot + RAM slot)

Cons

  • Subpar battery life
  • The display appears to be a bit dim and color-deficient for the more expensive configurations with Core i5 and i7
