Helios 300 (2019) - The Best $1200 Gaming Laptop

  • čas přidán 3. 07. 2019
  • Dave2D review of the 2019 Acer Predator Helios 300. This is the best gaming laptop Acer has made at this price point.
    Helios 300 on sale - amzn.to/30aG29o
    With a GTX 1660 Ti, the 9th gen 9750H from Intel, and a 144 Hz screen this puts every other competitor in the laptop market in a tough spot. If you're gonna compete in this space, you gotta play against the Helios 300.

    I legit think that most companies HATE the existence of this gaming laptop. This puts a LOT of pressure on companies to make something competitive.

    For cheaper you can get a better MSI with same graphics card. For an extra $200, can get an RTX 2060 in it.

    You used to have to spend an arm and a leg on a decent laptop and since Pascal and the 6core 8th gen i7 they're a lot better for the price.

    hello everyone if you are in Australia then DO NOT BUY predator helio 300 2019 model as it is false advertisement. I just bought one with GTX 1660ti i7 16gb ram ... I found the display refresh rate is 60hz then I contacted the store and Acer they told me they don't even know its been advertise on Acer website with 144hz display ...www.acer.com/ac/en/AU/content/predator-series/predatorhelios300
    and they can't do anything else as it comes with 60hz no refund or replacement. acer also asked me to contact NVIDIA, which I did NVIDIA after checking system information they told me THE display IS CONNECTED WITH intel graphics card physically so only way anyone can see gtx performance is connect the laptop with external HD high refresh rate monitor. by default, everything runs on intel graphics and then I called almost every place selling this laptop all of them told me it's coming with 60hz display, not 144hz display and those shop not putting 60hz on their specification on their websites. which is very disappointing as its more then 2000+ dollar gaming machine..if I knew anyway it's false advertising I would have gone for Asus TUF or Asus rog stig or anything else ... very very disappointed with this false advertisement.

    I was planing on getting a ASUS ROG Zephyrus S but then I thought to myself,
    it`s nice to have a high end gaming laptop but this 1200$ one will do the job and it`s more than enought for what im planing to do with it.
    Clicks on the link -> 1500 € (im from eu) for the 8 RAM modell and 1750 € for the 16 RAM.
    Guess I`ll just spend 1k more and get the 244hz 32 gb RAM Zephyrus S instead.

    • Salem Bamakshab
      Salem Bamakshab Před 11 dny

      @Petra Jurkovic well , any laptop comes with igpu ( integrated GPU like Intel HD graphics or the UHD ones on newer CPUs ) these igpu should do the trick when it comes to movies and normal apps and the windows GUI , unless you are talking about 4K movies probably only new models the UHD could run when it comes to igpu line , gtx 1050. Could run 4k movies if your igpu too weak , gtx GPUs and AMD's GPUs aimming for gaming it won't make your experience much better , if your igpu is enough for 4k movies then won't need a GPU .
      If not then any GPU will be enough ,
      Unless we are talking about gaming pretty much igpu is useless here, so yes GPUs are for gaming it won't affect your experience with the movies unless the igpu couldn't run the 4 k movies then the gtx can take the place easily , you won't have any problems with anything less than 4k probably ,

      The gtx 1050ti is better it could run some games that the 1050 won't be able to, it's around 15-25% better fps in most games

    • Petra Jurkovic
      Petra Jurkovic Před 12 dny

      Yea thats probably better to go with,also is it a big difference between gtx 1050 and gtx 1050ti?and does gtx affect movie watching or is it only noticable in games?

    • Salem Bamakshab
      Salem Bamakshab Před 12 dny

      Go to User benchmark site , so you can test both of them and know witch cpu/ GPU is better , for me I would go for stronger GPU than cpu

    TANVIR Před 14 dny

    Their older generation Helios and Nitro devices had poor manufacturing quality. My Nitro 5 came with battery plug loosely attached to motherboard that was causing sudden shutdown while running on battery. It also had shit thermal paste. My friends Helios 300 2017 had similar issue with battery. Both were sent to warranty and there is no issue after that. All they had to do was plug in the battery properly and that would save our one month wasted for warranty. I hope those unacceptable issues are fixed in newer generation.

    i saw all the reviews of this laptop from various youtubers and i think everyone is reviewing the 1200$ one from amazon, which has uneven screen bleeding on the top. But the other configurations like the rgb keyboard model or the rtx models don't have that issue. Cause many of my friends have different configurations and dont have that issue. Can u confirm the same.
