Acer Nitro 5 AN517-54-77KG Review And Specification


The Acer Nitro 5 AN517-54-77KG, Acer's newest entry in the budget midrange gaming PC market, checks all the necessary boxes for your portable gaming and productivity demands. This gaming laptop, which has a 17-inch screen and almost the same hardware as its 15-inch stablemate, the Acer Nitro 5 AN515-55-53E5 that we just reviewed, is excellent for gamers on a budget.

That's because Acer Nitro 5 offers more for less money, especially when compared to rival laptops like the MSI GE75 Raider and ASUS TUF Gaming F17. It has an Intel Core i7-11800H processor and an Nvidia GeForce GTX graphics card for about $1000, and it completes the package with a respectable 1080p screen with a 144Hz refresh rate and a comfortable keyboard for both work and play.

The 17-inch Acer Nitro 5 is undoubtedly one of the finest value big screen laptops available because to its affordable price, decently powerful specifications, and extensive feature set. Although some compromises had to be made in order to achieve the sweet price, we're delighted that none of them materially affected the performance of the laptop, especially given the savings it provides.

The Acer Nitro's appearance and feel leave something to be desired, but that doesn't mean it's unappreciative; just the contrary.

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

These are the three elements that we have mixed feelings about. 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 17.3-inch, 1080p, 144Hz refresh display used by the Nitro 5 AN517-54-77KG is still sharp and clear but tends to tilt towards the darker side (even at its brightest setting), and it is nearly bezel-free.

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

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.
