Reviews for the Acer Predator Helios 300 PH317-52-75L8

Acer Predator Helios 300: We review the bestselling gaming laptop on Amazon
Source: Good Gear Guide English
Overall it’s hard to complain much about the Acer Predator Helios 300. Sure, the battery could be larger, but then it would be heavier and bigger too. With its friendly upgrade paths, top-notch CPU and GPU, and hard-to-beat price of $1,100, there’s a good reason why the Predator Helios 300 has long been the bestselling gaming laptop on Amazon.

Acer Predator Helios 300 (17-inch, PH317-51/52) review – distant from its smaller sibling, yet so alike
Source: Laptop Media English
If you are expecting the usual Predator experience from Acer, you will definitely be disappointed. But if you are a fan of the lineup and you still don’t want to spend so much money on a 17-inch GTX 1060-equipped gaming machine, then the Predator Helios 300 (17-inch) might suit you. Even with all of its drawbacks, there are still some things that need to be considered.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 (Laptop): The mobile GTX 1060 is based on the GP106 chip and offer 1280 shaders. Compared to the identically named desktop version it features a slightly lower clock rate. Games in Full HD and maximum details should run fluently on the card. These graphics cards are able to play the latest and most demanding games in high resolutions and full detail settings with enabled Anti-Aliasing. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.
Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  
8750H: On Coffee Lake architecture based processor for big and heavy laptops. Integrates six processor cores clocked at 2.2 - 4.1 GHz (4 GHz with 4 cores, 3.9 GHz with 6 cores) that support HyperThreading. Manufactured in an improved 14nm process (14nm++). » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
17.3":

This large display size is used for laptops which are mainly intended for an use on a desk.

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.

2.9 kg:

This weight is representative for typical laptops with a 14-16 inch display-diagonal.


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.


80%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
