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.

ASUS TUF Dash F15 (FX516) in-depth review

Last year, ASUS was one of the first manufacturers (if not the first) to trust AMD and their Ryzen 4000 processors. And it turned out to be a success. You could have snatched a rather affordable unit with supreme computational performance, which was something unseen to this day. And as they continue to do that in 2021, with AMD's even more powerful Ryzen 5000H CPUs, they did a slight detour. This is how the TUF Dash F15 (FX516) was born. Instead of the extremely powerful AMD processors, it includes something bold from Intel - the Core i7-11370H - the first quad-core high-performance Core i[...]

Pros

  • Good keyboard with decent travel, clicky feedback, and an RGB backlight
  • Interesting and efficient CPU/GPU combo
  • 3200 MHz memory in dual-channel, RAID support via dual M.2 PCIe x4 slots, and Thunderbolt 4 + Wi-Fi 6 support
  • The display doesn't flicker at any brightness level (LM156LF-2F03)
  • Has a good contrast ratio and comfortable viewing angles (LM156LF-2F03)
  • Can be purchased with a 165Hz 1440p panel

Cons

  • Lacks an SD card reader
  • It gets pretty loud and hot on the outside when gaming
  • Covers only half of sRGB and has slow response times (despite the fast refresh rate) (LM156LF-2F03)
  • Lacks a Web camera
