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.

Acer Aspire 5 (A515-44 / A515-44G) in-depth review

Ever since the new AMD Ryzen 4000U processors got released, manufacturers are slowly but surely flooding the market with AMD versions of their laptops. Ultimately, this is because of the superior performance of the new Red CPUs, which also come at a lower price, compared to their Intel counterparts. The Aspire 5 (A515-44G) is such a device, which is derived from the A515-55. We're not going to lie, it is probably the same outfit, with only the motherboard (and the everything on it) swapped. In addition to the laptop, we're going to see how the "new" AMD Radeon RX 640 performs. Well, we [...]

Pros

  • Features Ryzen 4000U processors at a great price
  • Comfortable viewing angles and good contrast ratio from the IPS panel (LG LP156WFC-SPD5)
  • Doesn't use PWM to adjust its brightness levels (LG LP156WFC-SPD5)
  • Decent battery life
  • Supports memory and storage upgrades

Cons

  • Lacks a Thunderbolt connector and an SD card reader
  • Covers only half of the colors of the sRGB gamut (LG LP156WFC-SPD5)
  • The Radeon RX 640 is hardly any better than the integrated graphics card
