Reviews for the Acer Predator Helios 300 PH317-53-79Y1

68% Acer Predator Helios 300 Review – The 2020 Baseline Gaming Laptop
Source: Pokde English
There are some issues that can be fixed, and some you will just have to live with. Despite the issues, I do feel that it’s a better offering than the Triton 300. With that, I award the Acer Predator Helios 300 with our Bronze Pokdeward.

85% Acer Predator Helios 300 review (2019 PH317-53 17-inch model – Core i7, RTX 2060)
Source: Ultrabook Review English
Acer did an excellent job with this redesigned 17-inch Predator Helios 300, creating a new laptop from scratch, with a smaller form-factor, latest generation hardware and most of the modern features potential buyers expect in a gaming computer in 2019, just like with the smaller 15-inch variant. This one performs even better, runs cooler and includes better speakers and a brighter screen, but it's also chunkier and heavier, given it's a 17-incher, and still lacks certain traits some might want in a versatile all-day computer, like TB3, a card-reader, a cleaner design or longer battery life.

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.

» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


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.
