Acer Spin 3 SP314-21N review: A quiet 2-in-1 laptop with pen input

Versatile. Acer's 2-in-1 laptop is equipped for office and Internet operation with a Ryzen 3 APU, 8 GB of working memory in dual-channel mode, and an NVMe SSD. The touchscreen can not only be operated with the fingers but also with an active input pen.
Sascha Mölck, 👁 Sebastian Jentsch (translated by Mark Riege), 🇩🇪 🇳🇱 ...

The Spin 3 SP314-21N series from Acer stands for 2-in-1 laptops in the 14-inch format that are run by AMD APUs. Our test unit is equipped with a Ryzen 3-3250U APU. The convertible isn't unknown to us, since it is the identically built sibling of the Intel based Spin 3 SP314-54N. The competitors include devices such as the HP Pavilion x360 14 and the Lenovo Ideapad Flex 5 14ALC05.

Case and Equipment - The Spin 3 offers USB 3.2 Gen 2

Acer uses a silver gray case with matte and smooth surfaces made from aluminum and plastic. The convertible does not show any faults in the workmanship. There are no uneven gaps and we did not notice any material protrusions. The amount by which the base unit can be warped is just barely acceptable. The battery is built in, and you can access the insides after removing the bottom of the case.

The 2-in-1 device offers two USB-A connections (USB 3.2 Gen 1) and a single USB-C connection (USB 3.2 Gen 2) that neither supports DisplayPort via USB-C nor Power Delivery (= power via USB-C), which is unfortunate. An external monitor can be connected via HDMI. The microSD storage card reader turns out to be one of the slower models using our AV PRO microSD 128 GB V60 reference storage card.

Acer offers some Spin 3 models that are equipped with an active input pen, such as the Spin 3 SP314-54N that we already tested. The pen is then housed in a slot on the right side of the case, and it can also be recharged there. However, the active stylus is not included with the equipment version that we are testing here. Since the pen slot is closed by a cover, you would not be able to use the slot to house the pen or recharge it.

The WLAN transfer rates that we determined under optimal conditions (no other WLAN devices in close proximity and close distance between laptop and server PC) are not up-to-date anymore. The reason is easy to find: The Qualcomm QCA6174 WLAN chip that is used only offers maximum transfer rates of 867 Mbit/s.

Windows 10 Home in S mode serves as the operating system. However, you can perform a free upgrade to the regular Home version of Windows 10, and we performed this upgrade in order to be able to run our tests.

Input Devices - The SP314 does not offer a keyboard illumination

The chiclet keyboard is not illuminated. Its flat keys have a slightly rough surface and offer a short stroke and clear pressure point. The key resistance could have been more crisp. The keyboard has some slight give while typing. Overall, Acer delivers a keyboard suitable for everyday tasks here.

The smooth surface of the multitouch-capable ClickPad, which has a footprint of about 10.5 x 6.5 cm (~4.1 x 2.6 in), makes it easy to slide your fingers. The pad also responds to inputs in the corners. It has a short stroke and clear pressure point.

The touchscreen supports up to ten touch points and responds to inputs promptly. It can be operated with fingers as well as with an active input pen. A short test with the "Bamboo Ink" universal input pen that we used was successful. The Bluetooth connection between the pen and the Spin 3 worked flawlessly.

At 232.4 cd/m² and 578:1 respectively, the brightness and contrast of the reflective 14-inch touchscreen (1920 x 1080 pixels) turn out too low. We consider values higher than 300 cd/m² and 1000:1 as good. We did not notice any PWM flickering.

Display Response Times

Display response times show how fast the screen is able to change from one color to the next. Slow response times can lead to afterimages and can cause moving objects to appear blurry (ghosting). Gamers of fast-paced 3D titles should pay special attention to fast response times.
       Response Time Black to White
28 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 14 ms rise
↘ 14 ms fall
The screen shows relatively slow response rates in our tests and may be too slow for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 61 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is worse than the average of all tested devices (23.4 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
48 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 21 ms rise
↘ 27 ms fall
The screen shows slow response rates in our tests and will be unsatisfactory for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.692 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 77 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is worse than the average of all tested devices (37 ms).

Screen Flickering / PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation)

To dim the screen, some notebooks will simply cycle the backlight on and off in rapid succession - a method called Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) . This cycling frequency should ideally be undetectable to the human eye. If said frequency is too low, users with sensitive eyes may experience strain or headaches or even notice the flickering altogether.
Screen flickering / PWM not detected

In comparison: 52 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 21941 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

The IPS panel offers stable viewing angles and can be read from any position. However, outdoors you can hardly read it or even cannot decipher anything at all, since the low display brightness and reflective display surface prevent this.

Performance - Acer's 2-in-1 device brings a Ryzen 3 APU

With the Spin 3 SP314-21N, Acer offers a 2-in-1 device that brings sufficient performance for office and Internet applications.

Test Conditions

The Spin 3 doesn't offer any manufacturer specific power profiles, but the Windows standard profiles are used. We ran our test with the "Highest Performance" profile activated. The power limits of the APU are 25 watts (PL1) and 35 watts (PL2).

Processor

The CPU part of the Ryzen 3-3250U APU (Picasso) consists of a dual-core processor that runs at a basic clock speed of 2.6 GHz. Via Turbo, the clock speed can be increased up to 3.5 GHz. Simultaneous multithreading (two threads per core) is supported.

The processor runs through the multithread test of the Cinebench R15 benchmark at 3.4 to 3.5 GHz and through the single-thread test at 1.6 to 3.5 GHz. In battery operation, the CPU runs at 2.6 to 3.4 GHz (multithread) and 1.6 to 2.4 GHz (single-thread).

We evaluate whether the CPU Turbo can also be maintained constantly by running the multithread test of the Cinebench R15 benchmark for at least 30 minutes in a loop. The Turbo runs at varying speeds.

System Performance

The system runs smoothly and quickly, offering sufficient computing performance for office and Internet applications. This is also shown by decent results in the PC Mark benchmarks. The working memory transfer rates of the Spin 3 remain behind the values of the competitors. The reason for this is the Ryzen 3 APU supporting at most DDR4-2400 storage, while the competitors and the Intel sibling model use at least DDR4-3200 storage.

The working memory is soldered in.
