Dell Inspiron 3552 (HD, TN) display profiles – Quality and Health impact results
Expectedly, the Dell Inspiron 3552 notebook doesn’t excel in image quality and instead uses a budget type TN panel suitable for general office work and browsing. But, of course, our profiles can improve the general image quality of the notebook’s display so 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 Dell Inspiron 3552 has a TN panel with with narrow sRGB coverage, close to optimal color temperature and decent maximum brightness. Thus our profiles will improve the visibility in the darker areas of an image, bring down the average deltaE (improve color accuracy) and limit the PWM to some extent.
Since our profiles are tailored for each individual display model, this article and its respective profile package is meant for Dell Inspiron 3552 with 15.6″ CHI MEI 53 MPX-156BGE (HD, 1366 x 768) TN and the machine can be found at Amazon.com: Dell Inspiron 3552.

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, this display doesn’t have the needed properties for color-sensitive work so we suggest looking for a laptop with a better IPS panel that has a wider sRGB coverage and more accurate colors out of the box. We were able to partially fix the problem with the color accuracy bringing the average deltaE from 14 to 5.7.
Along with the color adjustments, we were also able to tweak the white point and also made some corrections of the gamma curve.
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 PWM to some extent. This profile will surely come in handy since this panel uses PWM from 0 to 99% brightness and pulsations are pretty aggressive at 260 Hz. It will also bring down the negative blue light emissions.
