First, per LaptopMedia’s review of the Predator Helios 300 PH317-55, the notebook has a durable construction with acceptable levels of flex. The laptop also houses plenty of ports with two USB Type-A 3.2 Gen 1 ports, one USB Type-A 3.2 Gen 2, one Type-C Thunderbolt 4 port, a single HDMI 2.1 input, one mini-DisplayPort, a 3.5 mm headphone/microphone combo jack, and an ethernet port.
More importantly, the Predator Helios 300 PH317-55-59J9 on offer boasts a spacious 17.3-inch 1080p display with a 144 Hz refresh rate. The display gets fairly bright at 314 nits, covers 96% of the sRGB gamut, and has an excellent contrast ratio of 1520:1 according to LaptopMedia’s testing. Because the panel on the Predator Helios 300 PH317-55 is IPS, the display has good viewing angles.
Finally, the combination of a Core i5-11400H and an RTX 3060 is powerful enough for 1080p gaming, as the Predator Helios 300 is able to push most games past 60 fps at high-to-ultra settings. eSports titles like Apex Legends run at above 100 fps with max graphical options.
