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:

Dell Vostro 15 3568 in-depth review

Here we are with another alteration of the ultra-affordable Vostro laptops from Dell. Last time we reviewed one of these, the Vostro 3559 to be exact, and found quite a few flaws, despite the relatively low price. With the newly updated 3568, however, we hope there won't be so many shortcomings to be taken into consideration. One thing is for sure, though, the chassis is absolutely identical so we are bound to see some of the issues here as well. In any case, it's good to see the new Kaby[...]

Pros

  • Considerably low price for a Core i5-7200U-powered laptop
  • The touchpad seems nice
  • Oustanding battery life
  • The display is brighter than we expected (235 cd/m2)

Cons

  • Inefficient GPU
  • Poor build quality (flexible base, lid)
  • Spongy keyboard
  • The screen uses PWM from 0 to 99% brightness (the Health-Guard profile eliminates that)
