    Best laptop I have ever owned!

    This laptop has a lot of bang for the buck. I searched for a long time and have not seen another laptop with this price that was loaded like this. Every other laptop had something that made it not as good. When I got it, it exceeded my expectations. It’s fast! It runs all of my games at the highest settings. I love it!

    Laptop stopped charging after two days.

    Laptop runs amazing and everything stays cool… but after two days of usage the laptop stopped charging. Troubleshooted with customer support on the phone. Having to ship it in. Timeframe on return 7-10 business days. I am quite upset that this happened after two days of use..

    poor quality

    This laptop seemed to good to be true; which is exactly what it is. At such a good price with those specs I gave it a shot. It feels cheap. I returned it because the keyboard was not registering keyboard clicks very consistently. It runs EXTREMELY hot when playing games, even with the fans blasting as strong as they could (which are so incredibly loud by the way), it was consistent at 95 celsius, which is no good. Even if the keyboard worked for me, I would have returned this laptop as this is obviously not sustainable for long term use. I would look into spending a little bit more money for something with these same specs that is a little more well built. The extra money will be worth the investment to stay away from this machine.

    An incredibly capabale gaming laptop that has a lot of value for the price

    This is a very good laptop that is very capable of AAA gaming at high settings. It was packaged well with seals to prevent any kind of tampering during shipping. Included was a very basic, but free neoprene sleeve for the laptop. There are no straps or pouches but it is soft and will protect the laptop during travel better than if it were left exposed, but I would still suggest getting a carrying case or a backpack if you do plan on being portable with this. Also included was an HDD upgrade cable and screws in case you want to add a your own 2.5” drive to the empty bay on the motherboard.The 1080p 3ms 144hz IPS display looks great and also has great viewing angles. If you’ve never used a 144hz Panel before, you can never go back to 60Ghz monitors for gaming again. 144Hz ruined my last gaming laptop because the difference is extremely noticeable (in general, it feels smoother when you move in games) compared to 60Hz panels. The webcam is passable at 720p. It’s fine for chatting with friends or zoom meetings but not recommended for anything beyond that. It also cannot work with Windows Hello. The 10th gen Intel i7-10750H 6core 2.6Ghz base clock speed processor is very efficient, powerful, and has decent integrated graphics (which the laptop will prefer to use when you aren’t playing games or doing any kind of intensive work that would require more GPU power). There’s a lot of value in this laptop given that this CPU alone is sold for $400 and the laptop also has an RTX 2060 6GB. The RTX is the newest architecture that has the ability to do ray-tracing. If you don’t know what that is, it’s realistic lighting effects that developers are putting into games now, but you need a card that has the ability to process it or you can’t take advantage of the feature.The RTX 2060 GPU is very capable. My average FPS with very high settings on Assassin’s Creed Odyssey was 70. In GTA V on high settings, it was 115. Interestingly, this laptop has a button called Turbo. Now, there’s no overt explanation for what it does when you take the laptop out of the box and don’t read the manual, but it essentially overclocks the GPU for you and kicks the fans into hyper-drive to compensate for the extra heat involved with overclocking it. In terms of performance, on the two games I tested the FPS on, it gave me an average of a 10FPS increase. It is noisy though when the fans are on full blast. I have to give credit to the fans which Acer advertises as “4th Gen AeroBlade™ 3D technology” and the thermal management of this design because even when the CPU and GPU are being stressed, the laptop stays at a reasonable temperature, and by that I mean you can game with it on your laptop while sitting down without it becoming too uncomfortable. Aside from the Turbo button, there’s also a Predator button on the keyboard. Pressing this opens an application that shows you the current temperatures of CPU/GPU and even ambient temperature inside the laptop itself overall. You can customize your lighting profile here, overclock your GPU with 3 speeds (normal, fast, extreme), and you can set your fan speeds to a custom setting or leave it on automatic. Because Acer has this application that controls these settings from OS, the UEFI BIOS is pretty sparse. You can’t customize voltages or do any kind of manual overclocking, but since the application does all that for you, and many gamers don’t overclock their system because they think it might be too complicated or risky, this makes it easy to do so with a simple click of the turbo button or drop down menus in the application. Speaking of the BIOS, you’re going to want to go into it (spam F2 when the laptop is powering on), and disable the annoying POST sound. By default, when you turn the laptop on, it plays a sound file that sounds like a jet engine firing up for some reason. I turned it off because I found it incredibly annoying, but I’m thankful the option to do that existed in the BIOS. Other than that, there isn’t a whole lot of customization to do in the BIOS. It also has WiFi 6! It comes with 16GB of RAM (two @ 8GB) but the DIMMS are user serviceable so you can put 32GB (two 16GB) if you wanted to with no issues.The OS comes per-configured somewhat, using performance metrics for the OS (such as not using the Aero theme). There is some bloatware which I recommend removing.In terms of build quality…this is where the laptop starts to show its low price point. The entire laptop is made out of plastic, and it flexes really easily, especially the panel. The plastic trackpad is just OK, it will function for web browsing and light tasks but it’s not that responsive overall. The two small cutouts for the sound underneath the laptop is a really bad design flaw I wish more laptop manufacturers would get away from. Please just include top facing speakers. The speakers themselves are already not great, so when they’re shooting downwards it makes it even harder to hear some games even when the volume in game is at 100 and the operating system volume is also at 100. For this reason, you’ll want headphones to go along with the laptop.The ports available are:Left side–Kensington lock, RJ45 ethernet, two USB-A 3.2 Gen 1 ports, 3.5mm audio jackRight side–Mini-displayport, HDMI, USB-A 3.2 Gen 2 port (gen 2 adds charging capabilities even when the laptop is powered off), and USB-C using 3.2 Gen 2.Behind–Charging port. Kudos to Acer for putting the charging port in the center behind the laptop.Acer rates the battery as being up to 6 hours, but don’t expect to do heavy gaming on this laptop while you aren’t plugged in. I got about 2 with some minor downtime between games.One thing I want to talk about is the design of the laptop. It does look good, but I think Acer needs to think about the type of person buying this laptop. It’s going to be mostly students who want a gaming laptop that they can also use to bring to class. I don’t think that gaming laptops necessarily need to look like “gaming laptops”. A more subtle design and the removal of any kind of LEDs on the exterior of the laptop would appeal to a much wider audience in my opinion.Overall, this laptop is an incredible deal. For what you pay, you’re getting an incredible capable gaming laptop

    Best Gaming Computer 2020

    I bought this laptop as a last second mobile CAD workhorse (I’m an Engineering Technician). I did a TON of research on laptops close to the $1K mark that were also prime available on amazon. There are a few configurations of this laptop on Amazon, this being the entry level RTX version. So far, I’ve been blown away by the build quality and performance of this Helios 300. ACER has been my go-to for reliable computing for awhile now. Let’s get to it:PROS:X2 M.2 slots for storage PLUS a SATA bay for even moreRGB zoned keyboard (and a great feeling one for gaming / everyday tasks)BIG vents on rear and sides, PLENTY of intake area on bottomThe thing just looks awesome, props to the design team for making a gaming laptop that looks professionalPredator sense UI is clean, loads quickly, and easy to useWith ray tracing on I saw around 60 fps on COD war zone with settings maxed.Not so much CONS:Fans get loud under load, but they react quickly and bring temps down FAST. It’s an RTX machine, what can I say?Audio could be improved, especially BASS… but you’ve read this before with any laptop ad I know you’ll be using headphones for gamesPower connector is in the rear center, you have to account for hardware layout here howeverBATTERY LIFE – probably the biggest complaint here, I would have absolutely spent an extra $100-$200 for better battery life if possibleSTORAGE CAPACITY – Would have liked a configuration on Amazon with 1TB + of this amazing nvme SSDIncluded case feels nice, but should have an extra pocket for the power brick (considering you’ll almost always need it)All in all a lot of this goes without saying, but what is worth repeating is that this computer has 100% exceeded my expectations. This is the laptop to get mid-late 2020 if you want a 10th gen Intel chip and RTX. Thank you ACER!

    Great budget gaming laptop

    After spending hours researching what laptop to get, I went with the Helios 300. It has good battery life, a super fast refresh rate and its specs looked really good for the price. The Predator sense app that it comes with is super useful as you can customize pretty much every aspect of the laptop. I only have small 2 problems with the laptop. The fans can get pretty loud at times but you can customize fan speed through the Predator Sense app and the other problem is that when playing games it will blow hot air onto your right hand. Not much of an actually problem but it’s different from my last laptop and something to get used to.BenchmarksCSGO – It plays csgo at 250-300 FPS on max settings and with the screen it plays amazingLoL – once again 175-250 FPS on league at maxRust – 70-90 FPS at graphics level 5. Plays much better than the last laptop I had!

    Prepare yourself for some configuration

    This is not reflective of the laptop itself, this is Microsoft being Microsoft. Your idle temperatures, out of the box, are going to rest as high as 70 to 80 degrees Celsius. Yes, you read that right. Windows 10 has implemented a protocol that uses only 2 of the 6 CPU’s at rest, which for a PC works out fairly well but for a laptop is a thermal nightmare. Don’t panic. A minor adjust of the max processor state from 100% to 99% should fix this issue and there are several YouTube videos out there that will show you how to do this. Make this the very first thing you do after you apply all the updates to the OS and video card. Second is switching the global setting in the NVIDIA control panel in 3D management from “auto” to “NVIDIA preferred.” Third is to make sure you give those rear fans some room to breathe- I give them about 1.5 inches standoff from the resting surface.These three things take about 90 seconds to do and they gave me idle temperatures of 39 degrees. Other sources will tell you to undervolt (these machines are factory undervolted by 0.125v) with ThrottleStop or UTX. It’s up to you which route you take, but you absolutely must change the power management settings whether you choose to manually undervolt or not because Windows 10 will fry your machine if you don’t.Other than that, I’m super happy with this laptop and you’re getting a ton of bang for your buck.

    Even better than last year’s model!!!

    If you’ve heard of the Helios 300 then you’ve heard it’s one of the best, if not the best price to performance machines you can get. For $1,200 you’re getting a beautiful 144hz/3ms 1080p display that’s very crisp and looks great. The aesthetics remain similar to last year’a model with the exception of the back vents look way more aggressive, very nice looking. It has in take slits above the keyboard for increased cooling. The 10th gen intel and rocking a 2060 or 2070max q depending on your configuration. Well, let me get to the meaty parts. Easily upgradable, non soldered ram, dual channel, WiFi 6 non soldered, two nvme slots and one 2.5 SSD slot. The cooling is PHENOMENAL. I was going to repaste but I wanted to see how it performed with factory paste. Well, the highest it reached was 91c and dropped down to 88c immediately. It was averaging 80-88c while gaming for over an hour(far cry 5 max settings). I will repaste just because I like tinkering with my stuff, but the average user not need worry about this. The GPU stays even cooler. Those intake slits they added above the keyboard makes all the difference. Let’s see what else… the sound is good, typical laptop speakers, use a headphone. The material feels very nice. It does not feel like a “budget” gaming laptop at all. In a sea of overpriced gaming laptops with similar or higher price tags, this one is truly the winner. Also, I know ryzen is great, and you’ll read all about “8 cores vs 6 cores maaaaan!” I went through 3 ryzen laptops. While the extra cores and threads were nice, they’re meaningless for gaming, especially when they run slower and hotter.

    The product is great, but Predator support is awful

    The product itself is great, but no technical specifications are provided (in-box or on their support site) for the additional M.2 slots or RAM compatibility for upgrades. I asked Predator support for information regarding max storage capacity for each M.2 slot because I found information saying that some models were only tested with 512GB drives, with some customers reporting 2TB drives as compatible. I was told that the maximum amount for each slot is only 256GB, which is clearly incorrect since this model comes with a 512GB drive. I also asked what speed each slot would run at when both are filled because some motherboards do not support two full-speed PCIe devices, such as the X570 Aorus Master in my desktop computer. I received no answer.Edit: I took a chance and installed a 2TB 970 EVO Plus NVMe, a 1TB 970 EVO Plus NVMe, and 32GB HyperX Impact RAM @2933 MHz. Everything is running at full specs and I’m happy with the machine overall. In addition to the support issues and lack of technical documentation, battery life is another concern–even with the stock configuration, the battery lasts little more than 2 hours.
