Acer Nitro 5 AN515-55-53E5 Review And Specification

Acer Nitro 5 AN515-55-53E5 Review And Specification

 The Acer Nitro 5 AN515-55-53E5 gaming laptop is made for gamers on a tight budget who don't have a lot of cash to spend on a gaming laptop. This is a budget gaming laptop that can run most games and costs under $1,000 for the model we're examining. However, don't expect it to run demanding games like Cyberpunk 2077 at their highest settings.

The Acer Nitro 5 widens your options for an affordable gaming laptop that can handle 1080p gaming and can be used for productivity activities when you're not playing, making it perfect for entry-level gamers. It certainly offers more for less money, especially when compared to other gaming laptops that have comparable hardware. 

and a midrange Intel Core i5-10300H processor. A user-controllable dual-fan cooling system, a Full HD 15.6-inch IPS screen, and a comfortable keyboard complete the package.

The Acer Nitro 5 is unquestionably one of the greatest value laptops available because to its low asking price, decently powerful specifications, and robust feature set overall. Acer undoubtedly made some compromises to keep the price of this laptop reasonable, but none have a noticeable impact on the overall performance, especially given the money you're saving.

The Nitro 5 line has since been updated by Acer with a late 2022 model that should be future-proof for a few years, so if your budget can stretch a little and you have a thing for newer components, you might want to consider that. It's the Acer Nitro 5 AN515-58-725A, which improves on the success of its predecessors to deliver even better gaming performance.

A 12th generation Intel Core i-12700H processor, an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 GPU, a 15.6-inch 144Hz 3ms IPS display, 16GB RAM, and 512GB SSD storage make this newer Acer Nitro 5 AN515-58-725A (2022 model) more powerful than the basic, red-themed design of the original Acer Nitro 5. For a couple of hundred dollars more, that's a lot of computer. Otherwise, the Nitro 5 AN515-55-53E5 is still a fantastic value for entry-level gaming if you're on a limited budget.

Acer Nitro 5 AN515-55-53E5 Design

The Acer Nitro 5 leaves a lot to be desired in terms of appearance and feel. That doesn't imply it's uninteresting or unappealing; in fact, there are some highlights to enjoy.

Though red accents may be found on the keyboard, backlight, trackpad, and top rear bar, we like the minimalist gaming style. The number of ports is a plus, and the display hinges are strong and tight.

Beyond that, the Acer Nitro 5 design isn't very noteworthy. For instance, the screen cover is constructed of subpar plastic, the region surrounding the keyboard track attracts fingerprints like crazy, and the screen has bezels that surround it by almost an inch. The newest USB 3.2 Type C, another USB 3.2 Gen 2 (with power off charging), two USB 3.2, one HDMI 2.0, and an Ethernet connector are among the ports available.

Display, Camera & Sound

The 15.6-inch, 1920 x 1080 display of the Acer Nitro 5 is a mixed bag. On the one hand, it allows you to play games on a brilliant panel with a 144Hz refresh rate, but on the other, it ruins the spectacle with mediocre colors.  

Although you may play Assassin's Creed Valhalla while driving over England's vast fields, the greens and yellows of the scenery appear to have been overexposed. But it doesn't mean it looks horrendously ugly—especially when you ascend into shadowy spaces—since you're always guided by the game's bright display. Again. Combat is significantly improved by the fast refresh rate, especially when the graphics settings are reduced.
Test results show that the Nitro 5 only covers 45.7% of the DCI-P3 color gamut, which is less than the 52% average for low-cost gaming laptops. The HP Victus 16 (77.3%) is more vibrant, but the Acer Nitro 5 is still somewhat more colorful than the rival MSI Katana GF66 (44.2%). Additionally, the Nitro 5's brightness of 316 nits, which is far more than the 295-nit average for gaming laptops on a budget, is startling. It maxes out the MSI Katana GF66 (248 nits) once more, but the HP Victus 15 (358 nits) continues to lead the group.
The camera is shaky and takes video at a maximum frame rate of 720p. Expect low quality pictures if you plan to use it for anything other than casual web chats.

The sound on the laptop is rather echoey and high-pitched, but you can customize it using the equalizer in the Dolby Audio software. Simply put, unless you're Origin, it's just another laptop with poor audio, which is standard for leisure gaming.

Keyboard & Trackpad

Acer Nitro 5 AN515-55-53E5 Keyboard

The keyboard is another aspect of the Acer Nitro 5s that most people purchase. It doesn't have anything really unique about it; the WASD keys are emboldened in red paint, and the symbols and lighting are all red. Overall, it's simply your standard, average keyboard. Having saying that, we found it to be incredibly reliable and comfy.

The keyboard is quick and responsive, and you won't encounter any lags, missed presses, or unintentional pushes - whether you're working or playing. The trackpad is pretty firm and offers a lot of travel. Even though gaming laptop trackpads are generally discouraged in PC gaming, particularly for FPS, RPG, and action titles, we had higher expectations for this.

A Battery's Life 

Unexpectedly, the Acer Nitro 5's battery life lasts longer than you might anticipate from a cheap gaming laptop. We were astonished that this laptop could run for 4 hours and 13 minutes at 50% brightness because gaming laptops are often known for having poor battery life.

This is partially due to the less-bright display's low battery consumption and the newer, more energy-efficient 10th-generation processor.
