Review: Microsoft Surface Laptop Go 3


Screen measurement with probe

Screen measurements

We begin our test with the panel, and in order to find out the colorimetric quality of this screen out of the box, we took measurements of the screen.

It was tested on DisplayCal according to 51 color patches, with the sRGB profile as the target.

As can be seen, the calibration is rather disappointing from the outset, with 6500K for the expected 6500K, which is rather cold. Delta E is just 1.96% on average and 5.29% at maximum.

In terms of brightness, the screen is capable of 322 cd/m², with a contrast ratio of around 947:1.

The screen is therefore well calibrated, but shows some shortcomings in terms of brightness and contrast. It’s perfectly suited to office use and some photography.
