Acer Predator Helios 300 review: A well-rounded gaming laptop at a great price


The Acer Predator Helios 300 laptop blends superb gaming performance with a compelling price tag.

Great 1080p gaming performance ; Powerful hardware for the price ; Comfortable design ; Easy to upgrade storage and RAM

Dim display ; Only 256GB storage capacity ; Lid is a fingerprint magnet

The screen isn’t dark enough to dissuade, though, and it’s the only semi-issue of note in the Acer Predator Helios 300. This is a great notebook.

Acer Predator Helios 300 (7700HQ, GTX 1060, Full HD) Laptop Review


A slim gamer! Acer's Predator Helios 300 is a gaming notebook that weighs under 3 kg (~106 oz.). Can its cooling system keep up with the relatively compact build and supply the device with sufficient fresh air? Find out in our detailed review.

easily recognizable ; light weight ; slim design ; GeForce GTX 1060 with 6 GB VRAM ; fast Intel Core i7-7700HQ ; good input devices ; 512 GB SSD ; matte display with good viewing angles ; high system performance ; low power consumption ; great port...

sound system is below expectations ; high temperatures under load ; cooling fans make high-frequency noise under load ; cooling fans difficult to clean ; only one free 2.5-inch slot available ; could offer more ports

The Acer Predator Helios 300 is a great entry-level device for gamers. The 17-inch device is equipped with a fast Intel Core i7-7700HQ, and the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 is a solid foundation for playing current games in the native resolution of 1080p....

Acer Predator Helios 300


The Helios 300 line are Acer's relatively affordable 15.6" and 17.3" gaming laptops with NVIDIA GTX 1060 6GB GDDR5 dedicated graphics and a 7th generation Intel Core i7-7700HQ quad core, 45 watt CPU. We look at the 15" model that starts at $1,100 with...

Acer Predator Helios 300


The Acer Predator Helios 300 is a beefy 17.3in gaming laptop with a surprisingly low price - but are too many compromises made to make the budget?

Plays 1080p games smoothly ; Core i7 processor ; Good-looking design ; Surprisingly lengthy battery life

Keyboard has familiar chiclet foibles ; Trackpad is too soft ; Mediocre build quality

Despite its size and design, the Acer is relatively affordable. The Nvidia’s GeForce GTX 1050 Ti featured here is one of the more modest GPUs from the mobile Pascal roster, offering 768 stream processors, 4GB of memory and a 1,493MHz core clock. That’s...

Acer Predator Helios 300 review


A lot of power for a budget gaming laptop

Lots of power ; Affordable price ; 144Hz refresh rate ; Decent battery life

Gets too hot ; Loud fans ; Lackluster sound

Despite two glaring flaws, namely the cooling system and the speakers, this budget gaming laptop packs a punch. If you’re serious about gaming but have a limited budget, you’re going to want to pick this one up.

Acer Predator Helios 300 review


The Helios 300 is one of the more affordable gaming laptops: not perfect but as long as you plan to plug it in most of the time, it's a fine performer.
