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).

Now the profile has a higher color temperature which makes is suitable for working through the whole day (not only at night) and simulates paper so the pressure on the eyes is greatly reduced.

Pro Tip: As the Health-Guard profile simulates paper and has as accurate as possible colors, it could be a great tool for prepress designers!

Design and Gaming

The second profile type is Design and Gaming – it combines our previous “Web Design” and “Gaming and Movie Nights” profiles in one, so it’s aimed at designers who work with colors professionally, and for games and movies as well (or maybe you’re a designer who likes to relax with some games or movies from time to time?).

“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.

Just as our previous Gaming profile, this one also regulates the first steps out of black so you can have even faster reflexes when playing in dark virtual environments…or just see everything in the darkest scenes in movies.

Office Work

The third profile is Office Work and it should be used mostly by users who spend most of the time looking at pieces of text, tables or just surfing.

Office Work aims to deliver better distinctness and clarity by keeping a flat gamma curve (2.20), native color temperature and perceptually accurate colors.

HP OMEN 17 in-depth review

The previous Omen 17 generation was somehow decent but not good enough to go against the competition in most aspects. Now, HP comes in strong with completely overhauled Omen 15 and Omen 17 gaming laptops that address most of the issues we had before the update, although we had fewer complaints about the 17-inch version. Anyway, HP manages to surprise with cool new design, better choice of materials, much better keyboard, usable touchpad and immersive 120Hz IPS display. The good news is that [...]

Pros

  • Fairly sturdy construction and refreshing design
  • Good input devices (improved keyboard and much better touchpad)
  • Excellent IPS panel with G-Sync and 120Hz refresh rate
  • The screen doesn't use PWM across all brightness levels
  • Stable and effective cooling solution
  • Expanded I/O including Thunderbolt support

Cons

  • Hefty chassis
  • Short battery life due to lowered battery capacity compared to the previous model
  • The lid is a little flexible due to the single-hinge design
