As part of our project to bring better image quality while bringing down the negative impact of laptop screens, we would like to post the results from the Ideapad 700’s screen (15-inch version). We’ve prepared the usual Health-Guard, Office work / Web design and Gaming / Movie Nights profiles. You can read more about the profile packages here and how to take advantage of them. 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 Lenovo Ideapad 700 (15-inch) has a decent IPS panel with little drawbacks – considering the price point, of course – but the display still uses PWM and needs some gamma correction so here’s where our profiles come into play.
Since our profiles are tailored for each individual display model, this article and its respective profile package is meant for Lenovo Ideapad 700 with 15.6″ BOE NV156FHM-N42 (FHD, 1920 x 1080) IPS screen, which can be found at Amazon.com: Lenovo Ideapad 700 (15″).

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 IPS panel of Lenovo Ideapad 700 isn’t exactly the best option if you’re going to use it as a professional design workstation. 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 5.2 to 3.4. Let’s see how that looks in the two graphs below…
Gaming and Movie Nights, Health-Guard
The IPS screen of the Ideapad 700 will do fine when it comes to general multimedia but performs even better with our Gaming and Movie Nights profile. 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).
