Reviews for the Acer Nitro 5 AN517-55-78NJ

70% Acer Nitro 5 (2022)
Source: PC Mag English
It's annoying that Acer has heard our gripes about the Nitro 5's hard-to-read keyboard for years without fixing it, but the laptop has otherwise shown steady improvement, moving from the 30fps to 60fps threshold and now taking a step nearer the big leagues with a 144Hz display. Unfortunately, the competition has improved too—it's easier to stand out in the $700 or $800 segment than the fierce, crowded $1,100 or $1,200 arena. We still like the Nitro 5, but it's no longer our first pick.

85% Acer Nitro 5 review (AN517-55 2022 17-inch model – Core i7, RTX 3070Ti)
Source: Ultrabook Review English
While it might not seem so at a first glance, Acer have much improved the 2022 Nitro 5 series in quite a few ways compared to the previous generations. They've tweaked some of the design lines and ergonomics, included some good screen options, beefed up the power settings and the cooling module, added up a 90Wh battery, as well as updated the internal specs to the latest available today. These make the Intel configuration reviewed here a powerful implementation in its class, and a proper alternative for what is still most likely the better-balanced AMD variant also available in this chassis.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

Acer: The company was founded under the name of Multitech in Taiwan in 1976 and renamed to Acer or Acer Group in 1987. The product range includes, for example, laptops, tablets, smartphones, desktops, monitors and televisions. Gateway Inc. and Packard Bell also belong to the Group and sell their own laptops.

While Acer still had the third largest global market share in the notebook segment in 2008, it ranked 6th in 2016 with a market share of 6% after they had continuously lost market shares.

There are dozens of Acer laptop reviews per month, the ratings are average (as of 2016). Gateway, which has an own laptop line-up, has also belonged to the Acer Group since 2007.


77.5%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
