The HP Pavilion 15 (15-cd000) display uses PWM for all brightness levels except for the maximum one

HP has decided to use a TN matrix for their HP Pavilion 15 (15-cd000) laptop so it shouldn’t come as a surprise to you that the display is PWM free only at the maximum brightness level.

The tests we’ve conducted show that the display uses pulse-width modulation for regulating the brightness of the screen resulting in the so-called screen flickering effect for all brightness levels except for the maximum one. The emitted light has frequencies around 200 Hz which are considered as aggressive. However, we have a solution for you and it’s our Health-Guard profile which eliminates PWM and also reduces the negative blue light emissions.
