Acer Aspire R13 uses the same IGZO screen technology as the Aspire S7 and thus, inherits great screen properties
We were very pleased with the screen quality presented in the Aspire S7 and it turns out that the Aspire R13 uses the very same panel manufactured by Sharp with a model number of LQ133T1JW02. That being said, results will not differ much from the initial ones, unless some additional calibration and tuning was done.
However, the panel covers 96% of the sRGB and 74% of the Adobe RGB color gamut and has a high contrast ratio of 1100:1. The maximum brightness is 342 cd/m2 – enough even for outdoor work under direct sunlight, but the color temperature was a little out of the normal range – 7180K and for the record the optimal one is 6500K (D65). So images appear a little colder than they should. Despite the little drawback, the screen brings WQHD (2560×1440) resolution to the table and no worries about looking at the screen for long periods of time, because our PWM tests show that it’s user-friendly. Screen flickering was recorded only from 0 to 22% brightness and even then the frequency of the emitted light was higher than usual, which is even better. You can see the results on the graph below.
We are currently working on the full review and soon we are going to publish it along with all detailed tests we’ve conducted.
