10 reviews for Acer Predator Helios PH315-51 (NH.Q3HSI.005) Gaming Laptop
Note : **Some of the reviews are picked from flipkart, Amazon and other e-stores.

  1. Rated 4 out of 5


    IPS panel with a matte finish which is always nice to have. It is sharp and colors look good thanks to the 81 percent sRGB color gamut coverage. Heat management is done thanks to two inbuilt fans. As soon as you turn on a heavy game or anything that requires higher performance, the dual fans speed up to cool the innards. Alternatively, you can control fan speeds manually thanks to the pre-installed Predator Sense app. The trackpad has a smooth surface and a red outline. It offers a decent size but the left and right clicks are a bit soft. The Windows gestures work good too and are very responsive. Acer has also added two easy access panels at the bottom to upgrade or replace the RAM or HDD.

  2. Rated 4 out of 5

    Economic Times

    Predator is the name given to Acer’s gaming notebooks. Helio 300 is the latest offering from the company and it offers specifications we have not seen from any other brand at this price. Special mention to the thermal design with dual AeroBlade fans-these are custom, ultrathin metal fans that enable better and quieter airflow to cool the massive heat-generating components inside. The Helios 300 impresses with its stylish and sturdy design-it has a brushed metal finish lid and palm rest. On top are red accents with the Predator logo engraved in silver. Overall, the Acer Predator Helios 300 is a winner in our books. It offers great performance, top-notch specifications, stylish design and saves you some money.

    As I have said, here is the review!


    Overall packaging was good. I haven’t got any cardboard box,mine was wrapped in a 3m long bubble-wrap and wrapped in polythene for about 1cm thick. It was in perfect condition. No tampering or damage in the package as many reviews says. But the package was visible, because its wrapped in transparent materials. Anyway thanks to Ekart courier service for delivering this safely.
    The Acer box was pretty cool. I love the way they arranged things inside.Nice box inside a box 🙂

    Wow!! It was so cooooool to see the lap for first time. The metal lid and chassis, the red finishing on the back, metal outline, the logo and the red strip, everything was eye catching and stole my heart. Just seeing it we can say “Its a freaking Gaming Beast”.
    But the whole part is a finger print magnet. Frequent cleaning is must for this beast
    While opening the lid, there was some clicky noises. Hmm feared a little bit but loose panels are Acer’s trademark 🙂
    The keyboard looks premium & track pad is also very good with integrated buttons. So we cant see physical left&right, that was I looking for.
    The bezels are fine,the logo down the screen greets me every time.
    But the overall design is very very similar to Nitro 5.
    If there is earthing problem, it will give some mild shocks at the edges. Sadly only my room has this problem and so I chose another room for setting this.
    It is acceptable due to the metal designing. I have seen many bad reviews saying this as a major problem. Earth your house correctly and don’t blame this lap for the mess.

    Good display with decent brigtness but not sufficient for outdoors. Colors are very good and vibrant. Also it has the anti-glare coating which indeed is very helpful. But there is a problem, at the four corners there is some light bleeding. Its not a big one for IPS so I’m gonna ignore it.

    Its really bang for the bucks. Core i5 7300HQ + 8GB DDR4 RAM + 128 GB SSD & 1 TB HDD + NVIDIA GEFORCE GTX 1050 Ti is a sweet configuration for most AAA available now.
    The package date was October, I think. So it was a recent one. The thermal designing is not the best. The heat pipes are common for both GPU and CPU, so efficient cooling is not done.Also the fans are close together. But the temperature range are fine. I expected 2 USB 3.0 but there was only one. But no problem. Other ports are standard.

    This come with so much bloatware. But some of them are needy. BIOS time is 1.5 sec and completely starts(without password) in 8-10 sec. Thanks to the SSD but it is not the fastest one in the range. Because of Windows loaded in SSD we get the full HDD to store the game. Your favorite game can be copied to SSD and thus can load the contents faster. The Predator Sense app is very useful to me. It contains various fan modes and real time tracking of load and temperature. Thermal not went above 85C during heavy gaming and for normal its between 65-75C. So no problem there. For extra drop in temp. I have under-volted the core by a factor of .100V.
    Coming to the essence: Gaming. As I said it have the sweet specs at the price for crushing all AAA titles easily. Thanks to the 1050Ti. All heavy games gives 60FPS at HIGH in 1080p. AAA gives 30 above for sure. Crank down some settings and it will touch 40(Played COD Advanced Warfare, Assassin’s Creed (All), Far Cry 4 & Primal, GTA V, Battle Field, Tomb Raider, Crysis 3,etc. at HIGH in 1080p.).
    Sound was super cool on this. Even though this lack bass but the quality and loudness are perfect. Else that who gonna game without headset. The sound from this was higher than my expectations. Thanks to Dolby Audio.
    The Backlit keyboard is a cherry on top. Night gaming made super awesome. Keys are good and have nice feedback. Track pad is good. Camera and mic are enough for skype.

    Battery is fair for this.
    For normal surfing and text editing this gives more than 6+ hrs and for Videos it last for 2 full HD movies. About 4hrs.
    for gaming,not expect more than 1 hr.

    Other Cons:
    The screen bleeding on corners.
    Bloatware. And one thing,it comes with a Office 2016 with a trial version to pis* me off.
    First annoyed with the directX files. Have to install manually even after updating NVIDIA drivers.
    Loose Screen
    Mediocre thermal design.

    But all these can be simply ignored!!

    Final Verdict:
    Acer Predator Helios 300 G3-572 has got some deriously good specs and less cons.
    This will only be a Real Bang for the Buck on offer. Mahn this will get some big discounts in festives,BSD,etc. About 50% discount will be given. If you are still looking, wait some time for the offer to come and grab this as fast you can. For upto 60K this is a Real deal.

    Other things found on reviews.
    About zero RPM of fans.
    Are these guys mad? If they have some common sense then they will never ask these kind of question.

    Thank you guys,like if helped

    Its an overall good product and for the money it sounds good at-least on the paper. But when you start scratching it under the surface, you will realise how Acer has cut corners on India spec models. Following things are have been swapped to lower grade items when compared to USA spec models:
    1. Screen on it is from Che Mei instead of LG Philips, so it has poorer color reproduction(sRGB 69% coverage vs 82% on US spec model).
    2. SSD on India spec model is a Hynix version SATA3 drive instead of Intel 600p NVMe SSD. SATA3 SSD have 25-30% performance of NVMe SSDs, so we loose a lot here.
    3. RAM modules are from Micron instead of Kingston ones on US spec models. Reliability of these RAM modules beyond first year of warranty is of doubt.

    Some of the above problems could be solved by changing the components as RAM and SSDs, but that makes it pumping more money into a laptop which already costs twice the price in USA. I would have definitely given this laptop 5 stars if configuration was at par everywhere in world; but Acer is clearly fooling us in name of a good laptop.

    I Got it in my hand a few hours ago.Hence, performance wise it will be very hard to comment or write a review.I will just keep this review segregated in 3 segments.

    Packing: Flipkart packing surely is lacking quality.This seems agreeable for all reviewers here.They just put the predator box inside a cartoon and sent.The cartoon could have something foamy or bubble wrapped with a same size as of the predator box,making it a perfect sized and shaped package.They faultered,and faultered big. Luckily the Acer package is awesome and very hard for any incident to make any tear on it.Acer,+1; Flipkart,a -1 I believe here.

    Shipping and courier: The courier company,named ecom express was pathetic. No one received calls in customer care,the tracking system is even harder than rocket science to understand where the package actually lies, and morover they up delivering the box 4 days after the promised delivery day,but the delivery centre attendant was very helpful and helped me to his utmost possible for getting a smooth delivery once it reached the delivery centre.

    Machine overview:Absolute gorgeous! The bright red backlight is so eye catching!Yes,display brightness is on a bit deemer side,but 1080P display coupled with smooth running processor makes up for it. Speakers with Dolby audio are really problem of any current flowing or anything while charging.Overall pretty impressed.I will update performance wise report after a few days of usage.

    Bought this for 61500…I missed at the first 40% offer..later purchased for 37% offer.Otherwise i would have gone for i7 which was around 70k during the initail offer.
    Thanks to flipkart for this immense offer.And thanks to the reviewers who gave up pros and cons and made me to decide this, since i had a basic idea that acer laps are of poor quality.

    1. Unboxing the beast,the stunning look-gives u guaranteed goosebumps for the first time. Acer packing was hard solid.
    2. The red backlit keyboard catches your attention than the predator logo on boot screen. keys and keystrokes are good.
    3. Boots in 3 to 5 seconds. Their comes the SSD role.
    4. Games runs butter smooth even in high graphics settings.Nvidia 1050 rocks
    5. Cooling system is really cool. Everyone commented about heating issues and undervolting or thermal pasting on cpu blah blah ..Yes the lap starts heating in 5 to 10 mins of gaming( I played Farcry 4 ).Max temp around 70 to 75C .Better play in medium settings with a Cooling pad.(I purchased 5 fans Cosmic byte red led cooling pad-combo woks perfectly)And with the predator sense maximum speeding of both fans will just flush out hot air and reduce the temp to 55 to 60C in few minutes. You can feel the heat
    otherwise that might melt your GPU.Less heating with cooling pad and max speed of predator fans. with long duration medium graphics gaming.
    6. Additional Ram slot.
    7. Turboboost a superadded option. You will feel the game without any lag at present games high graphics settings

    1. Poor packing of flipkart (as said by all reviewers). In future flipkart will deliver their cardboard box and the ordered product separately. Hats off to their quick delivery.
    2. Windows 10.I had slow wifi issue from the start. Updated Qualcomm Atheros driver and few other settings after going through youtube videos .Cant do any online update or any upto 5 days after purchase.
    3. Touch pad sucks. I had a Hp pavilion dv6 6165tx previously.Hence cant tolerate this touchpad. Using Red Gear Gaming mouse-with multi Led
    4. Battery is a drawback.4cell. 3 and half hrs max on mild to moderate usage. Should play games on ac power only. Dont know how long the battery will survive. 9 hrs(as in specifications) it ll be awake without working on lap and just on with low brightness screen i think
    5. 3 usb ports are not sufficient.
    6.Audio is average. for 99k its not worth
    7. 1Tb hard disk with average copy write speed.
    8. Acer service station are at comparitively less districts. Not at my district.

    Comparitive review:
    1.This is a fingerprint catcher as per many comments. its mild as per my opinion. within limits.
    2.Many said the screen is dim. But i find the dim screen from certain angles. Screen is Okay. Wont bring you a headache.
    3.Not so heavy
    4. Many had received a product with yellow white spots on screen. And thats a bad luck.Go for replacement.
    5. Finally its not just a beast. A step above.

    Check out Red gear blazer keyboard -Red led & Red gear wireless gamepad . best at the cost.Good combo with this predator. Just plug in and play.Catches everyones eyes. Not much costly and i aint an advertiser.
    Verdict : Worth for 60K range.Dont buy for 99k. Dont just wait during offer time for this stunning beast.Go for i7 if you are a video editor and a big multitasker and if available for 70k. And finally this is the only product which made me to type this much and hope this review might help someone to buy this on next offer season

    Thanks for reading.

    I bought this laptop on 8th of December at a price of 60k.
    Important things to talk about it-
    1.When you open laptop lid to makes some cranking sound each time, i don’t know what’s the reason but it makes me fear sometimes.
    2. When opening the lid(laptop screen) during the device is on it make some graphic glitches sometimes. I have updated intel driver till now its good.
    3. Putting the dolby setting to dynamic makes speaker sound cracking sometimes.
    4. Battery life after using for 3 days it now pretty good
    It was charged at 90% at(6:18pm) then i used for ppt viewing and at the background i was downloading movies(WiFi) at 9:29pm its have 52% left. Its pretty good.
    5. Stereo speakers are good but not loud as the speaker is below. Previous i was using Asus X50LD i7 its speakers were below the keyboard.
    6. Gaming its good.
    7. Screen brightness Ok Ok

    First of all, I would like to Praise Flipkart for the Great Packing.

    I took almost 15 min for me to unbox it.

    Starting From Very Beginning :

    1. Box itself Look premium.

    2.Very well Packed and protected ( By Acer )

    3. Then the Laptop Itself is very very Good looking.

    4. Not so heavy as mentioned by other users.


    Now next things to mention.

    1. Easy and very quick window registration and setup Thanks to SSD.


    I was using this Laptop with Changer in by the time I completed setup.
    Then after 30 min I un plugged it .

    Then What I saw is that laptop crashed or shutdown whatever you call it.
    I thought I might went on sleep.

    I restarted it .

    The same thing happened 3 times in a row.

    I was annoyed as I thought I got defected Product.

    I searched online on Forums as many users were Facing the same .

    My laptop was just 30 mins old , I was about to return It .

    But before Filing the return I Tried couple of things and My issue got resolved .

    The Steps are :

    1. The is a small Battery reset Hole/Point on the Backside or you can google it how to reset it.

    2. Use a pin to reset/press that button . ( For about 120 sec keep a hold onto it )

    3. Now most important step : Update BIOS.

    4. Goto acer Site and update is only 6 mb . ( Please read instructions carefully before doing it )

    My issue is resolved by Doing these two


    Coming to performance :

    1. Boots within 8 sec

    2. Looks Premium

    3. No lag at all.

    CSGO : 200+ FPS on MED settings

    PUBG : 80+ on High


    Also CONS ( As mentioned by other users )

    1. DIM screen : Not really , It is decent

    2. Fingerprint magnet : YES YES YES

    3 TRACKPAD : VERY VERY GOOD for me big and smooth

    4. HEATING : not at all while normal use : Yes While gaming : Fan are not that loud Even on MAX


    Verdict :

    Best laptop if you are getting it for 60k

    Already wasted days searching online for better deal and laptop .
    This is the best 🙂

    I have been using the laptop for the past three weeks. My usage consists of moderate gaming, browsing and office work.

    I can say my overall experience has been positive. However, there are few things with respect to Laptop and Acer that i disliked.

    Product Cons:

    1) Design of the track pad makes it usage difficult, i used Usb mouse to overcome this.

    2) The battery is mediocre and requires to be plugged in quickly.

    3) The display clarity could have been better especially during browsing documents and webpages.

    4) The product is overpriced at one lakh. This is part of the reason why Flipkart has some leverage to give some good discount on the product.

    I dislike Acer’s strategy of introducing trimmed down products in India. The Helios 300 version in USA has a better graphic card along with more ram and storage space. After paying a premium price too Indian customers get a bad deal. This bias towards emerging markets need to be changed. Companies should treat all their customers equally worldwide.

    Overall its a decent laptop for gaming.

    P.S : Please avail the extended warranty offered by Acer to this product. You get three year protection along with 1 TB external Hdd for nearly 3000 rupees.

    Packing was really poor. Flipkart, if you guys can’t get enough bubble wraps atleast get the appropriate size boxes. Laptop till now has no physical damage yet. Going to use and see if needs to be replaced or not. I would like to emphasize again please improve your packaging. Product till now is working fine. Just lil issue in software.
