I love the tests on this site but the way they rank screens remains a mystery to me. They rank them by Adobe RGB coverage while almost all content you ever see is sRGB. Adobe RGB makes sense for photography ... but not when nearly all screens barely brake the 50% level. It would also be wrong to estimate the sRGB coverage from the Adobe RGB percentage because 65% Adobe may represent about 100% sRGB or just about 50% sRGB ... total non-sense in my opinion. Then I take offense with great screen rankings when the screen has too many pixels. Sorry, but Windows simply does NOT work with 4K. If you are not limited to the use of a very small number of programs - like for example exclusively Adobe software you simply cannot work with the sceen without setting it to a different resolution - and that means the screen quality has to be graded at THAT resolution. Also all mirror displays should get at least a 20% setback in that category. Oh yes, the Zenbook 500 is of course missing at the top (as is the ZBook 15 with DreamColor display). One other strange thing - notebookcheck.net systematically gets to different and normally worse measurment results than ANY other review site I ever came across. Over and over again NBC measures less gamut than anybody else. As I'm looking for a display with about 99+% sRGB all this is very annoying.
