Display Profiles

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.

ASUS ROG Zephyrus G14 GA401 in-depth review

Ladies and gentlemen, this is perhaps one of the most exciting laptops of 2020. And it is not because of a crazy innovation like the secondary screen on the ZenBook Duos of last year. No, this is because we got a proper 14-inch laptop, equipped with an 8-core, 16-thread 35W processor, and an RTX 2060 Max-Q graphics card. Again, the device comes from ASUS, and its name is the ROG Zephyrus G14 GA401. In addition to the exciting new hardware, this laptop has one other distinctive feature. It is[...]

Pros

  • Optional AniMe Matrix light show on the lid
  • Good keyboard with decent travel, clicky feedback, and a backlight
  • Packs one of the most powerful mobile chips out there and supports Wi-Fi 6
  • 8GB/16GB of soldered memory plus one RAM SODIMM slot supporting 3200 MHz memory in dual-channel and NVMe drive support
  • The display doesn't flicker at any brightness level (AUO B140QAN02.3)
  • Has a good contrast ratio and comfortable viewing angles (AUO B140QAN02.3)
  • High resolution, 95% sRGB coverage and great color accuracy, partially thanks to our Gaming and Web design profile (AUO B140QAN02.3)
  • One of its USB Type-C ports can be used to charge the laptop or to output a DisplayPort 1.4 signal

Cons

  • Lacks an SD card reader and Thunderbolt support
  • The laptop gets loud and very warm when gaming
  • The RTX 2060 Max-Q happens to run quite warm after during periods of gaming
