Acer Predator Helios 300

The Acer Predator Helios 300 is a classic gaming laptop that takes the form of both a 15.6-inch and 17.3-inch laptop. As Acer expands its Predator gaming lineup for the second half of 2017, the company continues to focus on thermal technology to push the limits of gaming hardware. Shipping with Windows 10, the Predator Helios 300 offers high-end gaming features and technologies at mid-range price points. Acer’s new AeroBlade 3D fans and a new Corning Gorilla-Glass touchpad design were introduced with the new Predator Triton ultra-thin gaming notebook series and the more affordable Predator Helios notebooks. The large Corning Gorilla-Glass plate above the keyboard serves two functions: It’s a decorative window into the notebook’s cooling system, showcasing the AeroBlade 3D Fan and five heat pipes; but the glass surface also functions as a touchpad. Acer went with a different choice in materials: brushed metal for the lid cover and the interior, and rough plastic for the sides and the underbelly. Its matte black chassis incorporates more stylized red accents compared to the more “serious” design of the Triton 700. Its exterior is mostly black, but with sharp bevelled edges and quite a few red accents and embossed logos. There’s a big Predator logo on the lid, flanked by two red bars, but neither is backlit.

Aesthetically, the black metallic surfaces are prone to smudges and finger oil, so users will have to wipe them often. In terms of build quality, the Helios 300 is fairly well made with a strong inner deck. The display can lean back up to around 150 degrees and the hinges can keep it sturdily set up in any intermediate position. At the heart of the Predator Helios 300 is an overclockable Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 or 1050Ti GPU combined with a 7th-Gen Intel Core i7 (7700HQ) or i5 processor (7300HQ) for outstanding performance. All this processing power is supported by up to 16GB of DDR4 memory (upgradable to 32GB), a speedy SATA SSD and a 1TB HDD. In addition, access compartment doors on the bottom of the notebooks make it easy for owners to upgrade the memory and storage components. Another feature to mention is the webcam. It’s placed on top of the screen, flanked by two microphones and a LED that signals when it’s on. It has a wide-angle lens, but the image quality is grainy and washed out. The Predator Helios 300 also includes a USB 3.1 Type-C port, a USB 3.0 port (featuring power-off USB charging), two USB 2.0 ports, and an HDMI 2.0 connection. This laptop is suitable for casual gamers who also require something more practical.

With the exception of my display concerns, The Acer Predator Helios 300 is one mighty machine. A gaming notebook with the power of play the latest games in over 60fps, a VR-ready powerhouse with one surprisingly long battery life. I was extremely impressed and while I know why the machines is under $1100, it is more than worth it for the power and portability you get.

The Acer Predator Helios 300 is exclusive to Flipkart in the online space, and it’s now available for Rs. 89,990, compared to the launch price of Rs. 1,29,999. Keep in mind that this isn’t an official price reduction from Acer, only Flipkart’s pricing. If you’re looking for beefier internals then Acer has a Core i7 version of this laptop in retail stores which has 16GB of RAM, a 256GB SSD and an Nvidia GTX 1060 (6GB) for Rs. 1,35,550 (plus GST).

ACER Helios 300 Review: Bang For The Buck Gaming Notebook
Source: Unbox English
While the asking price for both versions of the Helios 300 (Intel Core i5/4GB RAM Php 66.9K, Intel Core i7/8GB RAM Php76.9K) isn’t what you’d call affordable, it’s still way lower than the offerings of ACER’s rivals. And like we said earlier, the deficiencies that we pointed out (no SSD, low RAM) can be easily remedied by putting in new parts, which most gaming PC owners are itching to do anyway.

70% Acer Predator Helios 300 review: Extreme performance and price
Source: Gadget Show English
The system boot and game load times on the Acer Predator Helios 300 is quite low. As most of it is handled by the large SSD within the machine. This machine is not a power hog either, 180W is what it consumes at max. The design is slim (because of which there is no DVD drive) and weight of 2.65Kg does make this notebook portable. All this seemed good and we almost moved past the "hot performance" till our eyes went over the price tag. The asking price of Rs 1,69,999 is steep and there is stiff competition from makers like ASUS, and MSI. Both have machines with similar tech specs at lesser price.

Acer Predator Helios 300 (17-inch, PH317-51) review – distant from its smaller sibling, yet so alike
Source: Laptop Media English
So is the 17-inch Helios 300 worth it? Well, the pricing of the machine is crucial and unfortunately, Acer wasn’t able to bring the price of this machine lower than the new 17-inch Acer Aspire V 17 Nitro BE and the Predator 17 (G5-793 with GTX 1060). So there’s not really a good reason to opt for the Helios 300 instead of the Predator 17, for instance, unless you really want the 7th generation Intel CPU and better portability because these are the only things in which the Helios 300 is better. And what about the 15-incher? With a display like this, the 17-inch Helios 300 appears to be the smarter choice here but you will give up some of the portability and the better build.

If you're looking for a budget-friendly gaming machine that's reliable, you can't get much better than the Helios. Between the top-tier components and effective cooling system, this affordable laptop more than gets the job done. If you're a hardcore gamer, it's powerful enough to handle virtual-reality experiences and the occasional AAA title. And if you just need a multi-tasking workhorse, it can do that too.

Acer Predator Helios 300 (G3-571) midrange gaming laptop review (GTX 1060 6GB, I7-7700HQ)
Source: Gaming Laptops Junky English
I’ll keep it short. The Acer G3-571 / Helios 300 is a basic gaming laptop, but for $1050 (current price), the laptop is the most convincing gaming laptop for that price I’ve tested. It sports the usual hardware of I7-7700HQ, GTX 1060 6GB, 1080p IPS display (with low response times in my unit) and a SATA 256GB SSD and it’s easy to find 1TB HDD for $50 to throw in. The basics are good – performance is as expected (actually I got a little higher FPSs compared to the Y720), temps are in the safe range and are lower – again – than the Lenovo Y720, keyboard is rather good. The most notable drawbacks are the low color IPS display (common), the lack of mDP, and only 2xUSB 3.0 port and ofcourse no Thunderbolt 3 and sound quality isn’t good. It doesn’t have GSync either, but that’s not different compared to the competition. So, I find this machine to be a better choice compared to the Lenovo Y720.

The Helios 300 is a highly customizable laptop that delivers some pretty solid gaming performance. The screen and weight are two things that bring it down, and we wish that it would run a little bit quieter. But these faults aside, it’s a great attempt by Acer to create an affordable gaming laptop that can cater to any gamer’s needs.

It may not be quite fair (or altogether appropriate) to think of the Acer Predator Helios 300 as a kinder, gentler Predator. But at $1,099 in our review configuration, it's certainly gentler on your wallet than a similarly configured Acer Predator 15, which currently sells for around $1,400.

Acer Predator Helios 300 Review: Mid Range Value
Source: Lowyat.net English
That said, for a GTX 1060-equipped laptop, the Acer Helios 300 certainly offers quite a lot for its asking price. The combination of a 256GB SSD with a 1TB hard drive is especially generous when compared to the competition, with only MSI matching it pound for pound. Considering that Dell and HP offers GTX 1050 Ti laptops for only RM600 less than the Helios 300, the combination of a GTX 1060 and a 256GB SSD is definitely worth a punt.

Gaming upgrade. Our exclusive review of Acer's massive fella. Equipped with a 45 W CPU and a GTX 1070 the brand-new case contains a true gaming powerhouse. The Helios 500 is the successor to the Helios 300, and while still quite hefty and bulky the new kid on the block is not as sharp-edged anymore.

But all of these good stuff come at a price: the Helios 500 retails from $1,999, which comes up to about RM7,965. It’s a high price to pay, but the gaming laptop’s feature set may justify it. If you’re eyeing to get the Helios 500, it’s expected to be available here in Malaysia very soon.

Source: Ultrabook Review English
The Helios 300 is Acer's mind-range gaming laptop built on Intel Core H processors and 1060 graphics and overall one of the best value notebooks in this market. The excellent pricing and solid performance are its main selling points, alongside a nice keyboard, alright IO and a fairly good screen with 144 Hz refresh rate on the updated 2018 model. There are however still some aspects to improve, like the size of the battery, arguable design decisions and rather lackluster speakers. Read on for more details.

Acer Predator Helios 500 PH517-51-93LS

I always question the existence of 17.3 screen gaming laptops. My reason is the mobility. Well, of course when you need to carry a desktop, then you have to carry a monitor as well. This makes more sense for mobile desktop replacements, but you give up your option for upgrades, mostly for processor and GPU. In our case, I have one of the newest Predator models. Equipped with i9 8950HK and 1070 8 GB GPU. Is the rest too important? Well, not much. 32 GB RAM, 4K screen, 512 GB PCIe SSD are just nice touches. Do you know why? Because Nvidia's Turing cards are on the horizon. Will you regret your decision when they arrive? Since you won't be able to change your GPU, in just a few months of time you will be missing out lots of opportunities. It is not because the 1070 GPU is not good. But it is a questionable purchase since a new GPU is coming out, which is especially thought for 4K. In most of today's games the CPU is not the bottleneck, it is actually always the GPU. With the 1070 it is possible to get above 60 fps in 4K, but will it stay that way next year? Okay, enough about GPUs. Overall, everything about this laptop is at top levels. Well, if there was at least a GTX 1080 GPU, it would have been better, but yeah, this is what we have. You can play all the games in high/ultra resolution, maybe some demanding titles will have a hard time running in 4K, but the rest will be no problem. Here comes the deal. This laptop, if it is okay to call this a laptop, is 4 kg. So it is not mobile. Since it is equipped with high-end components, I won't talk about battery life or anything similar. All things considered, I think you can play all games in high details for the next few years. But afterwards, it is a question. Since the Helios 500 doesn't have a Thunderbolt connection or Gen. 2 USB 3.1, external GPUs are out of question. Overall, yeah it is a great gaming laptop. But is it future proof? That is a thing that you need to answer by yourself. Hands-on article by Ümit Yılmaz Güneş

Ревю на Acer Predator Helios 500 – истински звяр с Intel Core i9-8950HK
Source: Laptop Mag English
Acer Predator Helios 500 ще промени света на гейминг лаптопите. Не само заради използването на най-новото и най-доброто от Intel в лицето на Core i9-8950HK, но също и заради изключително ефективното охлаждане и невероятен дисплей. Можем да определим Lenovo Legion Y920 и HP Omen 17 като директни конкуренти, защото това устройство също разполага с отключен за овърклок процесор и голям и ефективен термален дизайн. Преди да започнем с хвалбите трябва да отбележим, че по принцип харесваме по-леки и тънки устройства с не толкова агресия във външния вид. Клоним към сливащи се с околната среда устройства. Затова добавихме в сравнението MSI GE73VR.
Positive: Powerful hardware; high performance; backlit keys; nice display. Negative: Heavy and bulky.

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.

Acer Predator Helios 300 PH315-51-73C5

The Acer Predator Helios 300 PH315-51-73C5 is Acer's mid-range gaming laptop, which is built on Intel Core H processors and 1060 graphics. The Predator division was only formed in 2008 and was designed to focus primarily on gaming. It has been one of the most popular mid-range gaming laptops, mainly due to the pricing. With its part-metal build and GeForce GTX 1060 graphics, the Acer Predator Helios 300 is a compelling mid-range gaming laptop in a premium suite. The 300’s has been masterfully crafted and features brushed aluminum with two distinct curves providing an element of depth. Acer has placed two red lines on the inside and the Predator insignia is found in the very center. Along the edge of the lid, there is a section of plastic which not only helps with gripping to open/close the unit but also prevents any nasty smudges or fingerprints appearing on the lid. A dedicated graphics card that’s mere steps below the best, 16 GB of memory, the solid state drive and an 8th generation Intel Core processor, make this budget gaming laptop an impressive one when it comes to performance. The NVIDIA GTX 1060 has been selected and in this case, the 6 GB version. This model is ideal for 1080p gaming and is the sweet spot for this category of laptop. Most games will be able to sustain a healthy 60 fps with detail maxed out. The only thing that really affects gaming performance is the fan. Due to the fact that the fan and cooling system on this gaming laptop isn’t great, a user will experience thermal throttling, which in turn causes stuttering and frame drops whenever the CPU or GPU overheats. However, setting the fan to max and turning on CoolBoost puts a stop to the stuttering, and the performance returns to as it should be. There’s a 15.6-inch matte display on the Helios 300, with an IPS panel. The display has true-to-life color reproduction, with stronger blue and magenta hues that we like better than warmer tones for gaming and watching movies. The display also boasts a 144 Hz refresh rate, which is not typically seen in budget gaming laptops. This is a major upgrade from the 2017 model to help minimize blur and make up for dropped frames. Connectivity is located in the usual place, which is along each side. On one edge there are a Kensington lock, a Gigabit Ethernet LAN port, a USB 3.1 Gen2 Type-C port, an HDMI 2.0 port, a USB 3.1 Gen1 port, and an SDXC card slot reader. Users will notice the LAN port looks rather different to a conventional slot, since the lower latch drops down. Cable is connected and then the latch is released for a secure fitment. Over on the other side, there are 2 USB 2.0 ports, activity/battery LED indicators and a DC-in port. Hands-on article by Jagadisa Rajarathnam

With Black Friday and Cyber Monday unfortunately over this is still very easily a machine that you can afford to gift someone who is a gamer in your family and it’s also a laptop you personally can invest in if you’re a gamer. It’s one of the best gaming bundles not related to a gaming console there is. There’s so much to like with the Helios 300 and a few things to not like so much but the pros far outweigh the cons and I’d HIGHLY recommend this laptop to anyone looking for a gaming laptop. Acer absolutely nailed it and with Xmas holiday weeks away this is the time to pick up this laptop for your gaming needs. Head to Acer’s website and buy it direct from them or of course check your favorite retailer.

80% Acer Predator Helios 300 Review – 144Hz IPS Laptop
Source: Kitguru English
Not everything here is perfect, with the metal finish showing fingerprints a bit too readily and the large bezel round the screen is a bit 2015. The oddly placed hash key also took a bit of getting used to. However, overall that screen and the core performance make this laptop well worth a look.

Acer Predator Helios 300 Special Edition review: Paint it white
Source: Good Gear Guide English
I wouldn’t spend the extra $300 for the Acer Predator Helios 300 Special Edition, but your mileage may vary. My wife is utterly enthralled by its white-and-gold color scheme, and when I told her you could get the same laptop in black and red for $300 less, she said she’d still opt for the Special Edition simply for its aesthetics. No matter which version you buy, you’ll be getting a great gaming machine. Just be sure to budget for an extra SSD.

Acer Predator Helios 300 Special Edition PH315-51-78UA

The Predator Helios series can be considered as high end budget gaming laptops. The reason for that is not the hardware, but the used materials. Most of the gaming laptops, especially in the high end, use magnesium alloy cases, whereas Acer prefers plastic material, a lot. This helps to reduce the costs of the end product. If you consider 1,200 Euros, low of course. Don’t let the “Special Edition” in the name confuse you. In today’s industry, I think there is not much of speciality going on in terms of hardware and we mostly end up seeing those special stuff only on the outside and Predator Helios 300 Special Edition unfortunately is no different. In this case, the naming simply means instead of going for red or black coloring, picking gold and white. It is kinda obvious this model is targeted to female gamers. It sounds a bit strange, but yeah, it is what it is. Is there anything else worth mentioning about this “Special Edition”? Unfortunately not. In fact, in all the high end gaming laptops, this laptop could be considered mid range with its technical specs. It comes with at least a GTX 1060, in my opinion it is the minimum GPU all the gamers should aim for. I would take this further and say that all the current laptops which come with GTX 1050 or 1050 Ti can and maybe should be considered as multimedia laptops. Because they can not continue to provide high performances or lets say high details with high fps values any more and it will be worse going forward. Compared to Asus, MSI or any other gaming laptop manufacturer, this laptop does unfortunately not stand out. It is just a change in the colors and nothing much. If you fancy a white / gold laptop and are ready to pay more just for that well, go for it. Compared to a regular Helios, this model costs 300-500 Euros more depending on the provider. Is it worth it? It is a decision you have to make. In my own opinion, it is not worth it. A real gamer would spend that money for a GTX 1070 update, that would make a lot more sense. To sum it up, “Special Edition” naming seems to be just for marketing purposes as there are no real special thing to consider about. It is still a good gaming device. But all considered, I don’t think it is worth to spend extra money on it. Hands-on article by Ümit Yılmaz Güneş

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.
