I would love to give this five stars... 1/27/2019 6:29:37 PM

Pros: Supposedly good performance out of the box
Great values for the price
1060 in it is great
Keyboard is awesome!

Cons: Now.... let’s get to the bad.
I’ve noticed lately it’s running way hotter
Which causes FPS to drop. I turn down settings also, leave fans on max, and still does nothing.
I’ve done everything I can to fix this and can’t find a solution. Other than tell you that the fans are poorly placed as well. They should be separated. I’ve even tried using laptop coolers. Still nothing! Please fix this.

Overall Review: I bought this to replace my ps4. My ps4 might have better thermals than this does... the laptop gets so hot I’m afraid I’m damaging it. So now it just sits and I don’t game on it. Which is kind of why I bought it..

Acer Predator Helios 300 12/3/2018 6:48:34 PM

Pros: Great performance when plugged in, light weight and awesome sound. Runs games and apps smoothly

Cons: The battery life listed is 7hrs . With all battery saving and power options on I still could only get 3hrs which means I can't use it for school work in places I can't be plugged in. There is quite a bit of bloatware running on this machine and some in the background but not enough to slow it down. The battery is internal so there is no option to replace it if and when it will eventually lack a good charge, this is my biggest concern. The Touchpad is large and located where your left hand hovers over the space bar and I've already found myself

Overall Review: I'd recommend this to a Gamer who can be plugged in or has a big battery pack. This rig will consume energy
I don't recommend this to Devs, travelers or Students, which I am and who needs long battery life.

%#^$ing Spectacular Laptop 10/10/2018 4:57:12 AM

Pros: Not only does it look beautiful, the construction is solid, the features are excellent, and I love the full mini-chiclet keyboard.

The bloatware is easy to get rid of, and I recommend just uninstalling the useless ones because there are a few system utilities that are worth keeping. Definitely want the GPU selection tool, allowing you to use the i7's GPU when on battery and the nVidia GPU if you need the power or are on AC.

I was a little concerned that the white color would get dirty easily, but it's not like that at all. It is also the perfect blend between gloss and matte. Everything about this laptop's design is Acer showing that it has stepped up.

And, well, they didn't cut corners on the specs either, with the exception of a normal SSD/HDD, and honestly, I FIND THAT A PRO! Now I can add one of my own instead of paying 3x the price for one to be pre-installed.

Also, the screen is bright, vivid, crisp, and even. They took care to make sure it was sealed properly too!

My most recent discovery is that if you have an external display connected and you close the lid, the Helios will shut down the Intel UHD GPU and hand off duties to the nVidia GTX 1060 GPU full-time! This was an awesome surprise since I can effectively use it as a gaming desktop with a large monitor, external gaming devices, and not have to worry about sharing GPU time with the built-in screen or the distracting backlight or even worse, having to manually turn the screen off and switch the sound devices, etc, etc.

I am really glad I passed on the multitudes of others I looked at and decided to buy this. The Helios rules.

Cons: Not a single one so far.

This is a bit of a reach, but I was confused at first looking under Device Manager when I saw the USB3.1 XHC and then downstream a USB3.0 Root Hub. When I looked at the specs again, sure enough it says the USB3.1 port is rated up to 5gbps. This means that the controller will handle the throughput of USB3.1 but the hub should not.

Thinking a bit more about this, I would say it's actually a good thing and also explains why the laptop handles USB video outputs (i.e. DisplayLink) very, very well. It is the equivalent of having a router/switch/whathaveyou with a fabric that significantly exceeds the port capacity - you will never saturate it! Given that the laptop has 1 USB-C (3.1@3.0), 1 USB-A (3.0), and 2 USB-A (2.0), someone with lots of peripherals might connect additional hubs anyway; this allows for it without sacrificing performance.

Overall Review: If I absolutely had to pick something to change about the laptop, I would lose the USB 2.0 ports on the right and get 2 more USB 3.0 instead. I really like the placement of all of the I/O ports though, this is just a "would be nice to have." On that note, I would really like to see a laptop with just all USB-C that includes a few 3 - 6 inch dongles with adapters to USB-A ports.

The white has really started to grow on me, too. The green accent lighting on the lid is subtle and elegant.

Specs to highlight:
Core i7 8750H 6C/12T CPU at 2.2GHz/4.1GHz - One of the best market value CPU's in its class
16GB of DDR4 2666 RAM at CL19 - Pretty decent memory they put in, and I saw noted elsewhere that it's spec'd at 2400?
nVidia GeForce GTX 1060 with 6GB RAM - Same discrete GPU as in most top of the line gaming laptops; very good
144Hz IPS at 1920x1080 - Fantastic screen, well seated, even around the bezel, no leakage

I had come very close to buying a more expensive gaming laptop on several occasions before finding this one, but again I am very glad I waited because the performance value of this is incredible.

I added a 1TB HGST HDD in the available bay, but I am planning to swap out both the primary SSD (if possible, little more involved) and the secondary HDD I added for 1TB SSD's at the time when I yank the 16GB RAM and drop in 32GB.

I would highly recommend this to anyone.

this laptop is slick 9/23/2018 6:17:07 AM

Pros: a great laptop if you are willing to pay the premium for the special edition color scheme. the processor and gpu are powerful and the 144hz screen is great.

Cons: only cons are that this laptop does not have thunderbolt 3 and it could have better cable management if the usbs and hdmi were in the back and not the sides.
