HP ProBook 470 G3 (17-inch, HD+, TN) display profiles – Quality and Health impact results

hp-probook-450-profilesDespite the HP ProBook 470 G3 being a budget-friendly device, we must admit that the display quality is better than we expected. However, our profiles will surely come in handy 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 HP ProBook 470 G3 has an HD+ TN panel with 65% sRGB coverage, moderate contrast ratio (470:1) low maximum brightness (201 cd/m2) and a bit high color temperature. So our profiles will deliver overall better image quality by correcting color reproduction, limiting the blue light emissions and fixing the gamma.

Since our profiles are tailored for each individual display model, this article and its respective profile package is meant for HP ProBook 470 G3 with 17.3″ panel manufactured by AU Optronics with model number 219E featuring HD+ (1600×900) resolutuion and the machine can be found at Amazon.com: HP ProBook 470 G3.

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. And as you can see in the graphs below, this profile will bring down the dE2000 from the whopping 9.8 to 2.1.


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).


Health-Guard profile

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.

Are these computers purchased at a retailer like Consumer Reports does, or are they special built by the manufacturer and sent in for these reviews? I bought a 470 G3 from “N”, and it had very strong PWM. It was the 1080p display “ultra wide viewing angle TN” display as mentioned in the review. My replacement computer (same model number) does not have PWM and still has the same great looking image, but without the pain. Why do they stick whatever parts they want into these as they… Read more »

Sorry that I mixed this up with another review that I read and confused them. But still, another review did state no PWM on the 1080p display. My first purchase did have PWM, and the replacement does not have PWM. I suppose this could happen just as easily on a 900p display. And I am saying, I personally feel that PWM needs to be disclosed in the specifications. Thank you for letting me post this, but if it is deemed out of line; please delete. Regardless, thank you for the work you do on your reviews, disclosing much more valuable… Read more »
