Acer Predator Helios 300 (17-inch) review

 

Acer's Helios 300 laptop, part of the Predator gaming line, has a lot of things going for it. It's got a cool name, first off. It's reasonably priced, although not the least-expensive laptop you can get with these parts. There's a patented cooling fan...

The Nvidia 1060 graphics card is overclockable, and cooling is assisted by a patented superthin fan. For a 17-inch VR-ready gaming laptop, the price is very reasonable.

You can find the same GPU in 15-inch systems that cost less. The screen is only standard 1,920x1,080 resolution and doesn't really pop. The part-plastic body is a yawn.

You can find similar components for less, but Acer packs a lot of unique features -- and a big screen -- into the midpriced Predator Helios 300.

Acer Predator Helios 300 (i5-8300H, GTX 1050 Ti, Full-HD) Laptop Review

 

Budget laptop for gamers. Powerful notebooks often come with a hefty price tag. This is not the case with the Acer Predator Helios 300. The gaming-capable version of this laptop costs only 1100 Euros ($1296). You can learn in this review how the...

great price-to-performance ratio ; fast Wi-Fi ; Nvidia Optimus ; great battery life ; IPS panel

not a lot of ports ; poor sound quality ; limited maintenance options ; slow SSD with coil whine ; screen bleeding

Even though Acer has cut a lot of corners to get the price down (slow SSD, few ports, poor sound quality), the Predator Helios 300 is still a great device. All in all, the 17-incher is an exciting offer for price-conscious gamers. The battery life also...

Acer Predator Helios 300 – Review

 

The Acer Predator Helios 300 looks like a high-end gaming laptop thanks to its aggressive design and 17.3in screen but, pleasingly, it's not priced like one.

The Acer is a well-made machine with good balance, especially considering the £1,300 price. The GTX 1050 Ti is a solid 1080p gaming chip, the Core i7 processor is fast, and the screen is solid.

Acer Predator Helios 300 (17-inch) review: Big screen gaming without the big price

 

Acer's Helios 300 packs in features including on overclockable GPU and a patented superthin cooling fan.

Quality!

 

Paying this sort of money you would expect premium quality and boy do you get it with this machine! 17.3 inch screen is certainly a step up from 15.6 inch and although some may not think so, it makes a big difference, images and graphics are super...

Best laptop I've had

 

Super speed and graphics. Sound could be a bit better but not important for the use I wanted it for. Games are awesome and start up and shut down are lightening fast. Buy this if you want quality.

Avoid

 

Overheating straight from the box! Acer worst model laptop ever. Display quality is verry bad.
