  • Intel Core i5-7300HQ
  • NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti (4GB GDDR5)
  • 15.6”, Full HD (1920 x 1080), IPS
  • 256GB SSD
  • 8GB DDR4
  • 2.48 kg (5.5 lbs)

Pros

  • Decent build
  • A slightly more simplistic design approach with less flashy appearance
  • Fairly comfortable input devices
  • Full HD IPS display
  • The panel doesn't use PWM for regulating screen brightness
  • Reliable cooling solution (at least for the AMD configuration)

Cons

  • The display becomes really dim (just 104 cd/m2) when the notebook isn't plugged in
  • The CPU is less powerful than its competitors and too old to be included in a 2017 build
  • The Radeon RX 550 can't beat the GTX 1050 in the same price range

In addition to receiving efficient and health-friendly profiles, by buying LaptopMedia's products you also support the development of our labs, where we test devices in order to produce the most objective reviews possible.

Office Work

Office Work should be used mostly by users who spend most of the time looking at pieces of text, tables or just surfing. This profile aims to deliver better distinctness and clarity by keeping a flat gamma curve (2.20), native color temperature and perceptually accurate colors.

Design and Gaming

This profile is aimed at designers who work with colors professionally, and for games and movies as well. Design and Gaming takes display panels to their limits, making them as accurate as possible in the sRGB IEC61966-2-1 standard for Web and HDTV, at white point D65.

Health-Guard

Health-Guard eliminates the harmful Pulse-Width Modulation (PWM) and reduces the negative Blue Light which affects our eyes and body. Since it’s custom tailored for every panel, it manages to keep the colors perceptually accurate. Health-Guard simulates paper so the pressure on the eyes is greatly reduced.

Acer Nitro 5 in-depth review

Acer's Nitro 5 lineup seems like a strange addition to the gaming family since there are already low-end gaming configurations under the Aspire VX 15 brand. In any case, the Nitro 5 has more in common with the mid-range Acer Predator Helios 300 notebooks rather than the VX 15 due to its cooling design, chassis and overall construction. And while the case looks good and appears to be more solid than the VX 15, the Nitro 5 incorporates a poorly-designed cooling solution with both cooling fans stuck on one side. We've seen the same done in the Helios 300 and the Lenovo Y520 and it's needless to say we weren't pleased with the results. On the hardware front, Acer is shipping the Nitro 5 in various configurations and most of them include the Core i5-7300HQ and the Core i7-7700HQ CPUs pai[...]
