ASUS GL552VW is yet another notebook we welcome to our profile package list of laptops that have paid a visit to our laboratory. There we put them through extensive tests, and that includes display quality and health impact benchmarks.
Here we’ll cover what we’ve managed to achieve with our equipment in terms of color accuracy, blue light reduction, and gaming experience. In other words – what you’ll be getting if you decide to support us and buy the profile package from the module below.
The package includes three profiles – Health-Guard, Office work / Web design, and Gaming / Movie Nights. The first one reduces the negative impact of the screen (Read more here), the second one executes whatever tweaks are possible in order to change the display colors so that they are as accurate as possible in the sRGB color gamut, commonly used on the Web. You can read more about the profiles here:
Since our profiles are tailored for each individual display model, this article and its respective profile package is meant for ASUS GL552VW configurations with 15.6″ LP156WF6-SPB5 (FHD, 1920 x 1080) IPS screen, which can be found at Amazon.com: ASUS GL552VW

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. ASUS ROG GL552VW is suitable for Web Design and, as you see below, the LaptopMedia profiles achieves average deltaE2000 = 0.72. The gamma curve is perfectly aligned with the 2.2 standard.
Gaming and Movie Nights, Health-Guard
ASUS ROG GL552 is one of the best gaming notebooks on the market and if you happen to own one, you should definitely consider buying the “Gaming and Movie Nights” profile, which delivers a better experience when ambient lighting is low.
Sadly, GL552 uses somewhat aggressive PWM below 99% brightness. Fortunately, the Health-Guard profile eliminates it and you can use your display at 200cd/m2, without PWM (be sure to keep the brightness slider at its Max position). Moreover, Health-Guard reduces negative impact of blue light, so if you’re not using your GL552 for work with colors, we recommend choosing this profile after sunset.
