Reviews for the Acer Predator Helios 300 PH317-54-71AE
However, the battery life is average, it’s a fingerprint magnet, it doesn’t differ much from its previous iteration, 4-zone RGB feels a little outdated in 2020, the fan gets really loud in Turbo, and it’s true potential is held back by the single stick 8GB RAM. If you already own the previous iteration, there’s really no reason to upgrade to this one but otherwise, it’s still one worth considering.
