    For any of you who have the LG 173WFG 17.3" FHD 144Hz IPS Display which is in most Alienware Area-51m laptops, here is the Spyder5Elite calibrated Profile.

    Download LG Philips 173WFG.icm

    Here are how the Spyder5Elite App set the options in Control Panel / Color Management (ignore the model displayed that's from my previous laptop's screen, the file should be Dell LG Philips 173WFG.icm in our case)

    Now, click on the Change system defaults button on the bottom right of the Advanced tab.

    Then head over to the Advanced tab again in the new Window that popped out and check the box at the bottom which says: "Use Windows display calibration" and you will see the changes in color immediately when you do that.

    After applying this color profile, you will notice the colors are much more rich and vibrant. They're very pale and dull with the default profile. This screen was in dire need for a calibrated color profile!

    Solid! One of the first things that I did was to calibrate the display and yes you're absolutely right...it needed it lol... The FHD panel itself is pretty nice.... definitely on the higher end and with a nice calibration it really shines...

    Thanks for sharing!

    I was unable to find it anywhere.

    I can confirm this...
    I have visually compared this to a couple desktop monitors that say they have 4ms response times and the LG is visually faster.
    It is important to also know that the AUO has a similar response time even though places have reported it to be faster.
    I'm super picky and its very difficult to see a difference if there is any.
