Acer Predator 17 (UHD, IPS) display profiles – Quality and Health impact results
The new Acer Predator 17 (G9-793) with GTX 1070 features the same UHD IPS panel as its predecessor and thus inherits all the excellent properties making it the ultimate display for multimedia, gaming and even color-sensitive work. In the pack below, you will find the usual Health-Guard, Office work / Web design and Gaming / Movie Nights profiles, each of which will improve the overall image quality in certain aspects. You can read more about them here and how to use them. We also suggest reading our dedicated article regarding blue light emissions and PWM and how our custom profiles help eliminate both to certain extend.
The Acer Predator 17 has an 4K UHD IPS panel 100% sRGB and 100% Adobe RGB coverage, high contrast ratio, high maximum brightness and numerous other useful properties. However, there’s always some room for improvement with notebook screens nowadays and our profiles will aid in some particular situations.
Since our profiles are tailored for each individual display model, this article and its respective profile package is meant for Acer Predator 17 (G9-793) with 17.3″ panel manufactured by AU Optronics with model number B173ZAN01.0, which is the same panel as the one in the last generation Predator 17 (G9-791), so the package is suitable for both versions of the laptop with UHD, 3840 x 2160 IPS and the machine can be found at Amazon.com: Acer Predator 17.

Office Work / Web Design
This profile aims to deliver the most accurate colors possible in the sRGB gamut – the colors used on the Web. That makes it suitable for Office work and, in some cases, for Web Design. However, even this display needs some slight tweaking in order to be suitable for color-sensitive work. The 100% coverage of the sRGB and Adobe RGB color space make room for some great potential so our profile will bring down the average dE2000 from 4.7 to 1.1.
We’ve also adjusted the gamma curve and white balance to fit the standards.
Gaming and Movie Nights
You can take advantage of the Gaming and Movie Nights profile, which will improve the overall visibility – especially in darker areas of the image – during gaming and watching movies (you can see an example here).
As for the Health-Guard profile, it reduces the blue light impact and eliminates the PWM. But since the screen doesn’t use PWM for regulating screen brightness, the profile will still be useful when it comes to blue light emissions.
Installing and using the profiles
