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 VivoBook 15 F515 (X515 / S515 / M515 / D515, P1512) in-depth review

Today we have a hot-out-of-the-oven multimedia laptop that may take over the world with its budget price and somewhat capable internals. It is a part of the VivoBook lineup and is built on a chassis, very similar to that of the S15 S530. The laptop we're talking about today is the VivoBook 15 F515, and it comes with a choice of some Ice Lake processors (and one Gemini Lake CPU), as well as the MX130 and MX330 when it comes to the graphics power. Let's pause here. So, the laptop features an older chassis, and comes with an optional MX130... which by itself is a rebranded GeForce 940MX - a g[...]

Pros

  • Decent upgradeability
  • GeForce MX250 and an IPS display at a great price
  • Comfortable viewing angles and good contrast ratio (AUO B156HAN02.1)
  • It doesn't use harmful PWM to adjust brightness levels (AUO B156HAN02.1)

Cons

  • Unsatisfactory build quality
  • Covers only 53% of the sRGB color gamut (AUO B156HAN02.1)
  • Weird and inefficient cooling solution
  • Mediocre input devices
  • Very small battery (although light loads will drain the battery surprisingly slowly)
