70% Acer Swift 3 16 review: Old school package but decent value
Source: Digital Trends English
You really can’t knock getting a large, 16-inch laptop with excellent productivity performance and good battery life for $1,000. That’s the Acer Swift 3 16 in a nutshell. My biggest complaints with the laptop are its slightly subpar build quality and its 16:9 display, making it feel too wide. But the keyboard is adequate, and the touchpad is large, although Acer needs to loosen up the buttons a bit. If you’re looking for a large-format machine for productivity use with a bit of creative work tossed in, then the Swift 3 16 is a strong candidate. Even though its display is 16:9, the Acer Swift 3 16 provides more than enough performance for productive multitasking, and the large screen can comfortably host two windows side by side.

Acer Swift 3 (SF316-51) review – 16-inch laptops are becoming more popular than ever
Source: Laptop Media English
Acer Swift 3 (SF316-51)’s IPS panel has a Full HD resolution, comfortable viewing angles, and a good contrast ratio. Its backlight is safe when it comes to PWM, while the color coverage is about 98%. This, paired with the good color accuracy with our Gaming and Web design profile, makes the panel great for professional work, requiring accurate color representation.

80% Acer Swift 3 (16-Inch)
Source: PC Mag English
The Acer Swift 3 may not have been our favorite ultraportable machine when we looked at the smaller version a few months ago, but as a 16-inch machine in the latest refresh, it works really well. The H-series 11th Generation Intel processor gives the Swift 3 a much-needed performance boost. Couple that with excellent battery life, and you have a very capable productivity machine. However, if you're looking to squeeze some more performance from your 16-inch machine for about the same price, we'd recommend grabbing our Editor's Choice pick, the Dell Inspiron 16 Plus, which will net you a GeForce RTX 30-series GPU, as well as a peppy H-series processor and even better battery life.

Comment

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.
