A while ago we published the full review of the ASUS X555 (or K555 as it’s called in some parts of the world) and now we’ve prepared the full set of profiles that aim to bring you better image quality and reduced negative impact on your eyes. We’ve prepared the usual Health-Guard, Office work / Web design and Gaming / Movie Nights profiles but if you don’t know what these profiles are all about, we suggest you read our dedicated piece. 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 ASUS X555 has a budget TN panel with considerable drawbacks but some of them can be fixed by using our custom profiles. They improve the general picture quality, limit the PWM to some extent and also decrease the amount of blue light emissions.
Since our profiles are tailored for each individual display model, this article and its respective profile package is meant for ASUS X555 with 15.6″ LP156WHB-TLB1 (HD, 1366 x 768) TN screen, which can be found at Amazon.com: ASUS X555.

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; although the TN panel of Lenovo ASUS X555 isn’t exactly the best option if you’re going to use it as a professional design. We would advise that you pick a notebook with an IPS screen and better gamut coverage / contrast ratio. However, we successfully bring the average DeltaE 2000 (color accuracy, lower is better) down from 9.2 to 4.7. Let’s see how that looks in the two graphs below…
Gaming and Movie Nights, Health-Guard
The IPS screen of the X555 isn’t good for multimedia purposes either but our Gaming and Movie Nights profile will make things a tad better. This profile lets you see more details in the darkest areas (you can see an example here).
As for the Health-Guard profile, it reduces the Blue Light impact and eliminates screen flicker on 200 cd/m2 brightness (be sure to keep the brightness slider at its Max position).
