Acer Nitro 5 (AN517-52) review – 17-inches of reasonably priced gaming
Source: Laptop Media English
Indeed, 17-inch gaming notebooks are not that popular, compared to their 15-inch siblings. They are more difficult to handle, take more space, and generally, they look like something’s wrong with them. However, the benefits of having a larger screen can be numerous. First of all, in many cases, you don’t need an external monitory, just because, the 17-inch display is big enough for home use.

Overall, Acer has done a great job of building a 17in gaming laptop for those on a tighter budget. Coming in at under £1,000 in the UK but you get a Core i7 chip, 120Hz screen and, most importantly an RTX 2060 GPU.

71% Acer Nitro 5 Review – Amd Ryzen 9 5900Hx + Geforce Rtx 3080
Source: Pokde English
For the most part, this Acer Nitro 5 gaming laptop is the same as before but supercharged with even more powerful components. You get great performance, 1440p display with 165Hz refresh rate, a comfortable 4-zone RGB keyboard, decent array of ports, can function as an emergency powerbank, and it finally moved towards the HDMI 2.1 standard. However, the build quality can still be improved, would be better if they made it lighter, there is slight thermal throttling, display is a little dim, and it lacks an SD card reader. At RM8,999, this may seem pricey but given what you’re getting, it does provide good value for money spent, especially since you wouldn’t need to upgrade anything further. At the end of our Acer Nitro 5 review, I award this gaming laptop with our Silver Pokdeward.

Acer Nitro 5 (AN517-41) – high-end hardware and a good price tag in one place
Source: Laptop Media English
In short, the Acer Nitro 5 (AN517-41) can be a high-end gaming device (if you configure it with the top CPU and GPU options) with a decent price tag for not-so-pretentious power users. Sure, it’s an all-plastic device but the whole build is sturdy while we observe some slight bends here and there but nothing too serious. At the same time, the laptop offers a decent gaming experience, the fans aren’t too loud, the CPU temperature is fine and the same goes for the GPU – 76°C core temperature is a normal result especially for a graphics card like the GeForce RTX 3080. The whole picture is complemented by a good keyboard and if you pick the optional unit with RGB backlight we can call the Acer Nitro 5 (AN517-41) a complete package for gaming.

80% Acer Nitro 5 review: Great gaming value with a great display
Source: PC World English
You're likely accustomed to seeing models of Acer’s venerable Nitro 5 budget gaming laptop line with prices comfortably in the triple digits. The company extends the line into midrange gaming laptop territory with this configuration ($1,700 at Acer), which packs a QHD display powered by an AMD Ryzen 7 5800H CPU and Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070 graphics. Despite its many charms and strong performance, the Nitro 5 takes a close second to the Asus ROG Strix G15 Advantage Edition, which remains the best gaming laptop value we've seen lately. The Nitro 5 has an obvious advantage in screen resolution, however: Its 15.6-inch QHD display lends a versatility to the Nitro 5 that makes it an excellent productivity machine as well. If you’re looking for a do-it-all laptop for both work and play, there’s a good argument to be made for the Nitro 5.

Source: PCR English
Well, the gaming laptops world updates almost every day, so research before deciding is always a good step. After research, I found this laptop to be the best in its category in terms of price point and its specs. It beats a lot of laptops, also 2000 range laptops. And there are not too many 17-inch range gaming laptops in the market. So if you are looking for an excellent gaming laptop with a larger 17-inch screen, with the newest Intel i7 CPU, beefy Graphics, and 1TB, yes 1TB (!!) SSD, this AN517-54-77KG is a really good value for its price, unless, of course, if you want to spend more.

Source: Digit week English
Hardly the gaming laptop of your dreams, but this year’s Acer Nitro 5 has got a big screen and audio that are accurate if not exemplary. Its keyboard is probably the rough stone here, but you’re still able to get a perfect external gaming keyboard/mouse combo. The biggest concern with this laptop is the price. Normally, Acer Nitro is a budget line, but above one grand – even if you’re getting a 17-inch screen, this laptop is actually more than its 15.6-inch Acer Predator Helios 300 counterpart, with the same Core i7 processor, but a more powerful Nvidia RTX 3060 graphics card. It remains our Editors’ Choice for midrange gaming laptops. If you’re a hardcore gamer with hardcore demands, you better look elsewhere. But if you’re on a budget – or just settling into PC gaming – and you’re willing to compromise on a few things for a big screen, the Acer Nitro 5 AN517-54-77KG is definitely an option worth considering.

70% Acer Nitro 5 (17-Inch)
Source: PC Mag English
The latest 17.3-inch Acer Nitro 5 has the performance chops you'd want in a high-end laptop, even offering a better deal than most $2,000-plus gaming rigs. That, plus sufficient storage and a fast display panel, are its biggest upsides. Beyond those points, it's a fairly unremarkable system—the design is plain, the build has some flex, and its display quality is a bit below average. Also, while it's largely an esthetic and consumer satisfaction issue, the Nitro 5 lacks some of the style, build quality, and premium experience that you might expect from a laptop in its price range. You can bring the abovementioned competitors' prices down with lesser configurations and get a nicer build without sacrificing much power. To be sure, the Acer is a fair deal for what it offers, but we have tested more appealing options in this price tier, with our pick probably going to the Lenovo Legion 7 Gen 6.

70% Acer Nitro 5 review: A big-screen RTX 3080 laptop with screaming value
Source: PC World Australia English
With the 15.6-inch Acer Nitro 5 model we reviewed earlier this year, Acer pushed its venerable Nitro 5 budget gaming laptop line into midrange gaming laptop territory by outfitting the $1,700 configuration with RTX 3070 graphics and a QHD panel. With this Nitro 5 (model AN517-41-R3NX), Acer further extends into the midrange category by bumping up the graphics to an RTX 3080 GPU and stretching the display to 17.3 inches — albeit with a lower, 1080p resolution. These upgrades push the price north of US$2,000. The bulky, plastic chassis doesn't scream premium gaming laptop or even utter with much confidence midrange gaming laptop. If your goal is to buy the most power and the biggest display for your gaming dollars, then the 17.3-inch Nitro, which is powered by GeForce RTX 3080 graphics and AMD's stellar Ryzen 7 5800H CPU, is worthy of your attention.

Acer Nitro 5 (AN517-54) quick review – decent non-expensive offer
Source: Laptop Media English
The Acer Nitro 5 (AN517-54) is a decent non-expensive offer with a 17.3″ screen. It seems the AN517-54 devices offer a lot of bang for their buck. The display options include two 1080p IPS screens with 60 Hz and 144 Hz refresh rates and there is a 1440p panel with a 165 Hz refresh rate – the latter will be a good idea if you choose the GeForce RTX 3070 (100W). In short, the Acer Nitro 5 (AN517-54) is a decent non-expensive gaming laptop with a big 17.3″ screen that comes with a good keyboard and decent touchpad. It comes with great upgradability options for its price. At the end of the day, this laptop offers a lot for its money and you can configure it to a powerhouse if you choose the Intel Core i7-11800H and GeForce RTX 3070 (100W).

93% AN517-54-79L1 – Where It Falls Short
Source: PCR English
Summarizing this review, if you are looking for a 17″ gaming laptop that has the newest CPU, RTX GPU, get this one. The 16GB rather than 8GB RAM, and monstrous 1TB rather than 512GB SSD storage are good values. The 144Hz refresh rate, backlit keyboard, and so many ports onboard are very welcome, too. It has a reasonable price due to the difficulties of the shipment of the chips right now, and this Acer Nitro 5 AN517-54-79L1 won’t disappoint.

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.
