Acer Predator Helios 300 Budget Gaming Laptop PC Review

The Acer Predator Helios 300 PH315-52-78VL, a budget gaming laptop, now armed with NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660 Ti graphics, the latest 9th Gen Intel Core i7 Processor. The Helios 300 also comes with a new custom-engineered 4th Gen AeroBlade 3D Fan Technology that keeps the performance up and the heat down.

Enjoy an incredibly fast 144Hz refresh rate and 3ms Overdrive response time in Full HD for frames that are crisp and clear for high-octane gameplay. You can say farewell to blur and enjoy smooth gaming experiences.

We are impressed with this PH315-52-78VL model’s performance for the price. This is a powerful machine for a budget gaming laptop. It can handle the most demanding games at medium to high settings. It has a refresh rate of 144Hz, which you’ll rarely see in gaming laptops of its kind. And it has a crisp, 1080p display with a true-to-life color palette.

 

Quick Spec
CPU: 9th Generation Intel Core i7-9750H 6-Core Processor 2.6GHz with Turbo Boost Technology up to 4.5GHz.
Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660 Ti with 6GB of dedicated GDDR6 VRAM.
RAM: 16GB DDR4 2666MHz Memory.
Screen: 15.6″ Full HD (1920 x 1080) widescreen LED-backlit IPS display, 144Hz Refresh Rate, 16:9 aspect ratio, 3ms Overdrive Response Time, 300nit Brightness, 72% NTSC.
Storage: 256GB PCIe NVMe SSD (2 x PCIe M.2 Slots | 1 Slot Available)

The Predator PH315-52-78VL gets a respectable array of ports including: Gigabit Ethernet, one USB Type C, three USB 3.1 (one with Power-off charging), an HDMI port, a Mini Displayport and a headphone jack. Wireless connectivity comes via Killer Double Shot Pro Wireless-AC 1550 802.11 ac Wi-Fi, alongside an HD Webcam (1280 x 720) with Super High Dynamic Range (SHDR) support.

Acer Predator Helios 300 Backlit Keyboard

We like the keyboard on this gaming laptop. It’s not only comfortable, ergonomically speaking, with good enough bounce, sufficient travel, and a matte feel to keep your fingers from slipping; but it’s also responsive and accurate. Like the design, the keyboard doesn’t have any incredible features that stand out or give it a gaming edge.

Acer offers a chiclet-style keyboard with nice travel and includes a dedicated numeric keyboard, something you rarely find on a 15-inch laptop. It is spacious, with 4-zone RGB backlighting and the main deck of 15 x 15 mm keys.

In short, The Acer Predator Helios 300 PH315-52-78VL is a budget gaming laptop that does stand out quite as much as it did in the past, with a better CPU and Ti GPU for gamers. The Acer Predator Helios 300 PH315-52-78VL may not be the best out there, but it’s just a step below the best. If you’re on a limited budget, you can’t ask for a better deal.
