Acer Nitro 5 (2019)

 

For less than $900, this 17.3-inch version of Acer's Nitro 5 bargain gaming rig plays top games at top quality settings at close to 60fps. Its screen is merely adequate, but the laptop as a whole is a great value.

Solid 1080p gaming and a giant display at a low price. Room for storage expansion. Decent webcam.

Lackluster screen. No SD card slot or Thunderbolt 3 port. Hard-to-read keyboard.

Bottom Line: For less than $900, this 17.3-inch version of Acer's Nitro 5 bargain gaming rig plays top games at top quality settings at close to 60fps. Its screen is merely adequate, but the laptop as a whole is a great value.

Acer Nitro 5 (2019) review: A great budget-conscious laptop, at least for the moment

 

Acer's Nitro 5 may age quickly with its entry-level hardware, but it's a great option for budget-minded buyers who enjoy light gaming and wouldn't mind upgrading in a few years.

Excellent keyboard ; Inexpensive ; Great battery life

Awkward shape ; Low-level performance ; Dim screen

Honestly the only aspect of the Nitro 5 that gives me pause is longevity. Look at that benchmark again: The GTX 1650 struggles with a four-year-old game. You’re definitely not going to max out most of 2019’s biggest releases, and it’s only going to get...

Acer Nitro 5 (AN515-42, Radeon RX 560X) review – not just a facelift, there is a new engine under the bonnet

 

Acer's Nitro 5 series has just expanded with one more device and guess what – it is powered by AMD once again. The company replaced the old 28nm AMD FX-9830P APU, which requires 45W of …

Refresh of a good foundation;Easy storage upgrade;No PWM-adjustment for all brightness levels;Backlit keyboard;Cool and relatively quiet under high load;Anti-smudge exterior;Good battery life for a gaming device

Dim display, while on battery power;Very resistive touchpad buttons

ACER Nitro 5 AN515-54 15.6" Gaming Laptop - Intel® Core™ i5, GTX 1050, 256 GB SSD

 

Very glad I got this before Covid-19 lockdown. Graphics card and processor keep demanding games going, and the SSD is a real performance jump in terms of loading. Fans are nice and quiet. A glowing keyboard is pretty cool too.

Can't really see the keys without the backlighting. I'd like to say it could do with more storage and a slightly bigger screen, but it is already good value for £650. Personally I prefer having visibly separate left and right buttons below the...
