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

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

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.

Now, the brand has made a jump to the RTX 3080, while our unit came with a 150W RTX 3070 Ti. This, together with the Alder Lake CPU inside should make a difference. We are really hopeful for this year's unit since the last one had some issues, which led to unimpressive clock speeds. Yes, the reason for this was improper cooling. However, Acer has finally implemented a liquid metal thermal compound on the CPU. We expect it t[...]

Disassembly, maintenance and upgrade options

This year, the Predator Helios 300 received a huge TGP injection in its graphics cards. This can very well make it one of the best 17-inchers in terms of value.
