We’ve encountered this panel before in the previous generation the Acer Predator 17X with GTX 980, but this time the display offers somehow better image quality may be due to some stock calibration. In the pack below, you will find the usual Health-Guard, Office work / Web design and Gaming / Movie Nights profiles, each of which will improve the overall image quality in certain aspects. You can read more about them here and how to use them. We also suggest reading our dedicated article regarding blue light emissions and PWM and how our custom profiles help eliminate both to certain extend.
The Acer Predator 17 (G5-793) has n FHD IPS panel with 90% sRGB coverage, high contrast ratio (1100:1), really high maximum brightness (363 cd/m2) and almost aligns with the optimal color temperature 6500K. In addition, we didn’t detect any PWM – as expected – but our display profiles will still come in handy because they will increase color accuracy. limit blue light emissions and correct the gamma so the screen will be more suitable for gaming and multimedia.
Since our profiles are tailored for each individual display model, this article and its respective profile package is meant for Acer Predator 17 (G5-793) with GTX 1060 with 17.3″ panel manufactured by LG with model number LP173WF4-SPF2 featuring FHD (1920×1080) resolution and the machine can be found at Amazon.com: Acer Predator 17 (G5-793).

In addition to receiving efficient and health-friendly profiles, by buying LaptopMedia's products you also support the development of our labs, where we test devices in order to produce the most objective reviews possible.
Office work / Web design
If your field is office work or web design, or you just want your monitor's color set to be as accurate as possible for the Internet color space, this profile will prove to be useful.
Gaming or Movie nights
We developed this profile especially for occasions on which you spend a lot of time in front of your monitor with some games or watching movies – it will be easier for you to discern fine nuances in the dark.
This profile reduces the negative impact of pulsation and the blue spectrum, securing your eyes and body. You still get a pitch-perfect color image, albeit slightly warmer.
Office Work / Web Design
This profile aims to deliver the most accurate colors possible in the sRGB gamut – the colors used on the Web. That makes it suitable for Office work and, in some cases, for Web Design. However, this display doesn’t have the needed sRGB color gamut coverage so you will have to look for a better IPS panel for your color-sensitive work. Still, our profile will bring the average dE2000 from the whopping 3.8 down to 3.2 deviation. Take note that usually values above 4.0 are unwanted.
We’ve also adjusted the gamma curve and white balance to fit the standards.
Gaming and Movie Nights
You can take advantage of the Gaming and Movie Nights profile, which will improve the overall visibility – especially in darker areas of the image – during gaming and watching movies (you can see an example here).
As for the Health-Guard profile, it reduces the blue light impact and eliminates the PWM. Since the display’s backlight doesn’t flicker, this profile will only help by reducing the negative blue light emissions.
