Acer Predator Helios 300 Review | Trusted Reviews

 

A 144Hz screen, GTX 1060 graphics card and low price should make this a tempting gaming laptop.

Great-quality screen ; Good gaming performance ; Reasonable value

Slow SSD ; Noisy cooling fans ; Weak speakers

The Acer Helios 300 is a decent option for those seeking a mid-range gaming laptop with a high refresh rate screen.

Acer Predator Helios 300 (15-Inch) Review and Ratings

 

At around $1,100 with Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 graphics, a 7th Generation Core i7 CPU, and a 256GB SSD, Acer's new entry-level Predator is tough to beat. We just wish the IPS screen were a bit brighter.

Exceptional performance for the price ; Solid-feeling shell ; IPS screen ; Easily accessible RAM, hard drive bays

Screen doesn't get overly bright ; Keyboard and speakers could be better

It may not be quite fair (or altogether appropriate) to think of the Acer Predator Helios 300 as a kinder, gentler Predator. But at $1,099 in our review configuration, it's certainly gentler on your

ACER Predator Helios 300 15.6" Intel® Core™ i5 GTX 1060 Gaming Laptop - 1 TB HDD & 256 GB SSD

 

Offer price at time of purchase, a steal. Performance is excellent. Screen amazing.

Not a moan as it’s a gaming laptop but it’s a little heavy on your knee, again not a moan as I expected this anyway.

Totally delighted with my purchase. Being a girl I love the design and that I was able to have it in white. Also delighted with the accessories that came with it. Lovely to use, and surprisingly good battery life.

ACER Predator Helios 300 15.6" Intel® Core™ i5 GTX 1050 Ti Gaming Laptop - 1 TB HDD & 128 GB SSD

 

Amazing performance for an incredible price! Really fast in apps and games, love the design, metallic coated on the outside. You can see a couple of fingerprints on it but it’s a small price to pay. Handles any game you through at it at full settings.

Slightly sharp edges and poor battery life. Bit noisy fan when playing at full settings.
