amazon Acer Predator Helios 300 reviews
Superior appearance, simple and beautiful.
With the Acer Helios 300, you will see a familiar design that comes from the Predator 15/17 and the Acer VX5 but has been cut off. The exterior is still a large sheet metal is scratched with the Predator logo prominently in the middle of two red plastic accents to create accents. The top part is the location of the antenna should be embossed embossing to create a hand grip to open the machine and the link between them is also diamond cut to highlight but not so prominent on the Red-Black background.
The hinge portion remains the same, remains a solid block and offers the ability to open with one hand (slow opening), and is also quite rigid without vibration when the force is applied.
Underneath is the heat-escaping slot, especially due to the fact that the fan has been pushed to one side so that the line is only partially open, the left part is shielded to restrict dust into the machine.
Left edge with RJ45 LAN ports, USB 3.1, HDMI, USB 3.0, SD card slot and Kensington lock
Right edge with 3.5mm headphone jack, 2 USB 3.0, power port and battery indicator.
The bottom right side has holes for air suction, and alongside the upgraded location of the upgraded components, you can easily upgrade to a hard drive like an SSD, add more RAM to the Helios 300.
The Helios 300 does not share the same layout with Predator 15/17, and this layout is similar to VX5 and is only different in terms of typing and pressure. This keyboard experience was a bit weird from the start and it was completely different from every previous Acer keyboard.
The WASD cluster with red borders, Fullsize keyboard and function keys on the Helios 300 are almost redundant.
Previously, the other device on the hands of Acer’s gaming line was the VX5, with the VX5’s display as a component to “for enough” as it looks like the most expensive thing on the VX5 is the heat dissipation capabilities, Performance is strong and the screen is just a little component highlights on it.
Helios 300 is completely opposite. The screen is not very bright, but the color is quite good, it does not bounce up in a certain color and has high brightness, while the screen coating works pretty well, giving the anti-glare. For the wide viewing angle, almost with this screen I am completely satisfied, the display on it is almost too full with a Gaming machine.

Helios 300 heat dissipation capability
First of all, the features inherited from the senior Predator 15/17 is that equipped with two AeroBlade 3D Fan fans with ultra-thin 0.1mm fan blades, and these blades are steel. and is exclusively designed by Acer to increase the heat dissipation efficiency, along with the Dust Defender’s ability to automatically reverse the fan to push dust out to keep the system clean and cool.
In addition to the Predator line, Acer equips it with Predator Sense software, which provides a more intuitive view of the system, with three main parameters including: Load, Temperature and Speed. The same is that it allows you to customize the GPU mode, boosting system performance.
PredatorSense is equipped with the CoolBooster feature, increasing the fan speed of the Helios 300 to above the threshold for increased cooling efficiency.
The ability to upgrade hardware easily, not too difficult to remove the machine
The Helios 300 speakers are just fine, bass, but not deep and also lose details so only suitable for Gaming, listening to music and watching movies only acceptable.
On the Helios 300, you can easily get a 2.5″ hard drive and easy RAM right from the back of the machine without having to remove the entire cover. With the standard configuration followed by 8GB of available RAM and a spare RAM slot, you can upgrade to 16GB of RAM anytime you want.
Similar to the VX15, the Helios 300 has been equipped with the M.2 slot SSD from the beginning, but has quite a low performance with an average reading of 550MB/s and write only equal the HDD falls to about 135MB/s.
For me after a period of experience Predator Helios 300, I think that it fully deserve the price that Acer offers. You want the strongest machine at a certain price, it will have the strongest, but the strongest is sometimes not the best, but if you want a machine that is still strong but it has many things worth The Helios 300 is definitely the best gaming computer in the segment as well as Acer’s.
