Personally It's not worth the money to me. I have bought this laptop 2 times and it sucks. As soon as you load up a game the fan kicks on. The heating is crazy the fan it's a lot louder than you would expect and you don't really get the 3.8Ghz, it's more like 2.8 while normal gaming most of the time. The laptop has one long air exhaust vent on the back with one side blocked off so it sucks up a lot of dusk from the bottom which will cause heating problems eventually so you would have to constantly clean it. The displays also have the a lot of backlight bleeding which you can see on black screens. For the price you would expect a little bit better you can find better laptops for that price.
Hey very nice video. I wanted to ask if you have performed an extended gaming session test for this laptop. ive been reading alot of things online that it gets pretty hot. (well enough to concern the owners). Yet some reviewers say that it runs pretty cool. Do you have thoughts on this? thanks
Well the state of import taxes in the Philippines makes any laptop above gtx1050ti overpriced for the extra 25-40% increase performance. I could have bought it but I chose not to spend Php70000 for the 1Tb 8gb version.
Compared to the vx15 1050ti Php45000 1Tb 4gb
amit das I bought this laptop recently. The only thing I was skeptical about was the display. But rest assured, it's got a good display. The brightness is sufficient for indoor use. You could easily get 40+ fps in the most demanding AAA games at ultra settings.
amit das dell, Acer has horrible customer service and quality. A while back I bought an Acer laptop (lower end mind you). After 1 year it broke down, and out of curiosity I decided to tear it open. It had a different CPU than advertised. Never buy an Acer.
and the power button is on the keyboard which is a no,no, if you press to hard and the cheap plastic breaks there you go, I got a ASUS gl551 which works great but there it is the cheap keyboard, and Acer is the same like kind, and I replaced my keyboard 3 times now in two years, so if your really wondering what else they cut back on you quested it the cheap ass keyboard
You are right =)) But do you have any suggest for me ? Im very often multitasking , gaming etc etc and undervolting seems not to help so much. I set fan speed to max and it reduced to 75-85* something....
I'm considering getting this for college as I work in Adobe, AutoCAD, etc (I can't just use a chromebook for my college work). I also saw that this laptop machine is capable of VR (The 1060 is more than enough) hype hype hype, but I'm wondering what I should do with my old PC... Of course, I'm not going to go into much detail about a desktop I have had for 4 years now and upgraded since purchase (My PC: GTX 960 FTW, AMD Fx6350, 8gb RAM, 1TB Harddrive) This laptop is LITERALLY better than my PC and I don't even have a good keyboard, good monitor, or anything really that would make me want to use my PC over the laptop. I'm just wondering if this laptop would be too much to take back and forth from home. How is it reliability wise? Would I be able to replace my PC with this? Also, does this laptop make loud enough noise to the point where I'd want to hide in the back of a corner during a lecture? Thank you anyone who answers this!
What would you pick for video editing Acer vx 15 or Acer predator hello 300. Is the helio screen brightness a big difference compared to the vx?I like to video edit outside on the beach sometimes. I know graphics card is better on helio
My girlfriend bought this laptop for my birthday, it's amazing, i'm actually typing this message from it. It's been like 2 months of using it, I recommend every bit of it. At first I was dissapointed, the plastic used to built this laptop seems pretty cheap to me, but it's holding really well, mine has AeroBlade 3D Fan, and 128 gb SSD + 16 gb of ram, i7 7700k 3,4 ghz and geforce gtx 1050TI 4gb. Runs league of legends like is nothing, fans are getting louder sometimes, but when I put my hands on the back of it, it's cold as ice, and that make's me feel super comfortable, even with the noise.The backlit keyboard runs 24/24 because i simply love it. If it had lights on the back panel like his big brother was really really nice. My girlfriend took this one since the other predator had only 1060 3gb but with no ssd and only 8gb of ram, it's a waste in my opinion to go for a 1060 instead of 1050ti 4gb, it's not a big of a difference, if you want a big difference you would go for an 1070 or 1080, there you can see full power. As i said, I'm super happy, and I hope to have it for like 2 years from now, if it will run smoothly in the next years I will choose the next gaming laptop from predator again.
