Reviews for the Acer Predator Helios 300 PH315-54-760S
Source: Digit week
The Acer Predator Helios 300 (2021) offers gamers powerful performance paired with a colorful display and a comfortable keyboard. The Acer PH315-54-760S model we’ve reviewed is priced fairly considering its GeForce RTX 3060 GPU, but competition is stiff – for the same rice or a little more, the Alienware m15, Gigabyte Aero 15 XC, and HP Omen 15 offer eight-core processors, better GPUs and more advanced features. The Helios 300’s ace in the hole is its price, and being the base model, it’s still more than capable of 1080p gaming thanks to its GeForce RTX 3060 – just like its more costly models with RTX 3070 GPU. Its outstanding partial metal design, good port selection, and nifty one-button overclocking help it stand out against the competition.

The Acer Predator Helios 300 is great for gamers and content creators who want a laptop that will serve as a desktop alternative. Its pricing is low enough to remain competitive with desktops and there’s plenty of wired connectivity for adding a monitor and wired peripherals. The laptop’s chunky design and poor battery life hold back its portability, but that’s less of an issue if you rarely move it. This underlines the strange state of PC gaming hardware in 2021: supply constraints have led to high prices and spotty availability. In a typical year, buying a laptop as a desktop alternative would mean paying a premium for lackluster performance. The Helios 300 shows that, in the strange year that is 2021, a chunky laptop might be the most practical choice.
