Both colour atlas and colourimeters provide colour measurements accepted by the scientific community (Kayser & Boynton, 1996, chap.
We evaluated the display using a colourimeter and found that the panel on the Asus Vivobook X505 is capable of reproducing only 93 percent of the sRGB colour gamut.
The measurement was made using a continuous flow colourimeter (AutoAnalyzer 3; Bran+Luebbe, Le Mans, France).
The new equipment adds to the already present Anyview from BiB and Cerium's Mark III Colourimeter in the suite.
In terms of performance, the display has a 97% sRGB coverage as per our measurements using a Spyder colourimeter. This isn't a bad number by any means for a display on a machine that costs less than 35K, but what didn't hit the mark was the viewing angle.
