• CPU: Intel Core i5-8300H
  • GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti (4GB GDDR5)
  • Display: 15.6”, Full HD (1920 x 1080), IPS
  • Storage: 512GB SSD + 1000GB HDD
  • RAM: 32GB DDR4

Pros

  • Decent build
  • A slightly more simplistic design approach with less flashy appearance
  • Fairly comfortable input devices
  • Full HD IPS display
  • The panel doesn't use PWM for regulating screen brightness
  • Reliable cooling solution (at least for the AMD configuration)

Cons

  • The display becomes really dim (just 104 cd/m2) when the notebook isn't plugged in
  • The CPU is less powerful than its competitors and too old to be included in a 2017 build
  • The Radeon RX 550 can't beat the GTX 1050 in the same price range

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.

Design and Gaming - screen profile

Design and Gaming

This profile is aimed at designers who work with colors professionally, and for games and movies as well. 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.

Health-Guard

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. Health-Guard simulates paper so the pressure on the eyes is greatly reduced.

Acer Nitro 5 (AN515-52) in-depth review

Acer's Nitro 5 lineup seems like a strange addition to the gaming family since there are already low-end gaming configurations under the Aspire VX 15 brand. In any case, the Nitro 5 has more in common with the mid-range Acer Predator Helios 300 notebooks rather than the VX 15 due to its cooling design, chassis and overall construction. And while the case looks good and appears to be more solid than the VX 15, the Nitro 5 incorporates a poorly-designed cooling solution with both cooling fans [...]
