Predator Triton 500 SE initial review: For serious gamers who prefer subtler style
Source: Pocket Lint English
If Acer's original 14-inch 'Style Edition' Predator Triton didn't quite deliver on scale or power, then the Predator Triton 500 SE is here to up the ante. It's got a bigger, brighter and meaner screen, plus power options that are far more considerable - but then so is the price tag, so you'll need to get saving. The design - pretty much pitched as 'gaming laptop for the business person' - is more discreet than your gaming laptop average, but there's still all the RGB lighting, cooling vents, ports and Turbo overclocking that you could want. It's good to see something a bit different to diversify the gaming laptop and creators market. Although, as we said of the original SE model, the 500 SE ought to up its game when it comes to screen sturdiness - especially at this price point.

ACER Predator Triton 500 SE Laptop Review
Source: eTeknix English
If money is no object, and performance is the absolute objective, then there’s simply no competition. A machine that’s greater than the sum of its parts. With premium components and its stunning build quality, it delivers remarkable gaming performance with ease, making it one of the fastest systems I’ve ever reviewed.

80% Acer Predator Triton 500 SE (2021) review
Source: Laptop Mag English
The Acer Predator Triton 500 SE is a solid do-it-all laptop but it's not the best overall gaming laptop in terms of performance and thermal management. Although it nails the basics, it's hard to recommend a product designed for gamers that drops the ball in these areas. Gamers need the best bang-for-the-buck for performance but also require good thermal management for long gaming sessions. It’s competition does better in those respects. However, there is a place for this laptop. If you dabble in gaming but perhaps do more photo or video editing, or are coding, this may be the right one for you. The Triton is relatively thin and light for a gaming laptop, making it easy to carry with you for everyday tasks and the occasional mobile gaming session It has an understated design that doesn’t stand out too much at work or at school, if that’s a concern. Its keyboard is nice to type on, and has a large, bright, high-res screen so coders and writers alike will find this pleasant to use for long work sessions.

Acer Predator Triton 500 SE pre-review (2021 PT516-51s model – i9-11900H, RTX 3080)
Source: Ultrabook Review English
Nonetheless, the 3060 (starting at $1749) and 3070 (starting at $1999) configurations are arguably the better value and where most people should end up shopping, so we’ll have to see how competitive this Triton 500 SE ends up once available in stores. Based on past experience and the little data available so far, I’d expect it to be aggressively priced in most regions. Anyway, that’s about it for now with this preview of the Acer Predator Triton 500 SE PT516-51s. I hope we can have the finalized review soon enough, and in the meantime, let me know what you think about this series and leave your comments below so I can go over them in the update.

The Acer Predator Triton 500 SE has the look of a top tier gaming laptop from its aggressively styled build, beautiful WQXGA display and respectable specs. But behind those attractive specs is a hollow device that offers below average gaming performance, low storage and weak speakers.

90% Acer Predator Triton 500 SE review: A gaming laptop that’s safe for work
Source: PC World English
For everything that’s on offer, the Predator Triton 500 SE is both a remarkable value and impressive balancing act. Gaming laptops with high refresh rates tend not to come in 16:10 aspect ratios, and the one notable exception—Dell’s XPS 17 9710—has both a standard 60Hz display refresh rate and a higher price ($2,099, when similarly equipped) to boot. While the Triton is by no means inexpensive at $1,750, it’s a reasonable ask for its combination of portable gaming and productivity on an ultra-smooth screen. Best of all, you might not even be embarrassed to be spotted with it.

Source: PC World Australia English
The Acer Predator Triton 500 SE is a gaming laptop that doesn't just want to be a gaming laptop. Instead, it falls into a burgeoning category of more work-friendly gaming rigs, joining the likes of the Asus ROG Zephyrus G15, Gigabyte Aero 17, and Dell XPS 17 9710 in toning down its wild side. There are no racing stripes or flashy LED patterns here, and the 2560 x 1600 resolution screen has a taller 16:10 aspect ratio to help with regular old office work. Yet the Acer Predator Triton 500 SE is ready to party when needed, with an Intel Core i7-11800H CPU, an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 Max-Q GPU, and a 165Hz refresh rate display for super smooth gaming (and, to be honest, web browsing). While some games don't play nice with a 16:10 aspect ratio, and the display could be more vibrant, overall this is a solid value for a laptop that's equally comfortable at work or play.

The Acer Predator Triton 500 SE marks a fine update to a good gaming laptop line, offering an uncommon screen size and the latest hardware to deliver a powerful, reasonably portable gaming experience. The performance may not blow you away for the price, and the disappointing keyboard and 512GB SSD keep it from feeling truly special, but it approaches the power of truly high-end gaming rigs for less money, so it may be just what you're looking for in the midrange tier.
