As we said at the beginning of the review, our unit was an early engineering sample from Acer, and we were not able to perform any performance and battery tests. On the other hand, we can definitely tell you that Acer Predator Helios 300 (PH315-55)’s IPS panel has a Full HD resolution, good contrast ratio, and comfortable viewing angles. It covers 100% of the sRGB color gamut, which results in a pretty attractive image, which is also rather accurate with our Gaming and Web design profile. Undoubtedly, the best feature for gamers is the 165Hz refresh rate, which is paired with quick pixel response times. In addition to that, you get a laptop with a huge feature pack. It has optional G-Sync support, liquid metal on the CPU die, optional Per-key RGB backlight, and more. The I/O is fantastic and it includes a Thunderbolt 4 connector. Once more, it lacks an SD card reader, which we’ve listed as Helios 300 (PH317-56)‘s only disadvantage – this is the 17-inch version of this laptop. Ultimately, the high TGPs of the graphics cards and the powerful processor options make the laptop an incredible piece of machinery.

The Predator Helios 300 2022 generation is a competitive gaming device in the mid-tier sector, dramatically improving performance over prior models. In the recent update, Acer increased the power settings and improved the thermal module to cope with them. The laptop is no longer as cold as it once was, but with up to 50 per cent quicker CPU loads and 30 per cent faster GPU loads, I can live with the components operating at greater temperatures and the fans operating at a higher volume. Furthermore, the Quiet profile tackles both of these issues while reducing previous generations’ capabilities. Aside from the specs, the 2022 Helios 300 includes a redesigned screen, one of the excellent keyboards on the market, and a substantial collection of connectors. With the addition of a 90 Wh battery and minor design and ergonomic refinements, this should be on your radar in the coming months. However, Acer has done little to improve the sound quality of this series, so you’ll need to utilise headphones. They’ll also help to muffle the fan sounds.
