Display Profiles

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).

Now the profile has a higher color temperature which makes is suitable for working through the whole day (not only at night) and simulates paper so the pressure on the eyes is greatly reduced.

Pro Tip: As the Health-Guard profile simulates paper and has as accurate as possible colors, it could be a great tool for prepress designers!

Design and Gaming

The second profile type is Design and Gaming – it combines our previous “Web Design” and “Gaming and Movie Nights” profiles in one, so it’s aimed at designers who work with colors professionally, and for games and movies as well (or maybe you’re a designer who likes to relax with some games or movies from time to time?).

“Design and Gaming” takes display panels to their limits, making them as accurate as possible in the sRGB IEC61966-2-1 standard for Web and HDTV, at white point D65.

Just as our previous Gaming profile, this one also regulates the first steps out of black so you can have even faster reflexes when playing in dark virtual environments…or just see everything in the darkest scenes in movies.

Office Work

The third profile is Office Work and it should be used mostly by users who spend most of the time looking at pieces of text, tables or just surfing.

Office Work aims to deliver better distinctness and clarity by keeping a flat gamma curve (2.20), native color temperature and perceptually accurate colors.

Dell Inspiron 15 5570 in-depth review

With the new rise of Intel's new generation of CPUs, OEMs are quick to launch their refreshed lineups with Dell being one of the first to adopt these chips. Sporting a clean and simplistic case, the Inspiron 15 5570 also packs a good punch thanks to its Core i7-8550U processor but fails to impress with the discrete AMD Radeon 530 GPU. There are also some significant trade-offs that need to be considered here and the display quality is the most important one. Featuring a TN panel, while mo[...]

Pros

  • Fairly portable
  • Supports M.2 SSD and 2.5-inch HDD even from the lowest configuration

Cons

  • Unconvincing build quality
  • Dim display with narrow sRGB coverage and extremely low contrast ratio
  • The screen uses PWM for regulating screen brightness our Health-Guard profile takes care of that)
  • Shallow keyboard, bad touchpad design
  • Slow GPU for the asking price
  • Hardware runs hot at higher workloads
