Top Customer Reviews
I also have a few very minor gripes with the laptop:
*It comes with a DVD drive instead of Blu Ray.
*It comes with bloatware. Easy enough to uninstall but it's a bit annoying.
*The Frost Core device is much too loud. It may be defective. It honestly seems like a gimmick to me and I don't really care about it, but I'm going to contact Acer and update this review with the results.
But gripes aside I am extremely happy with this purchase.
Below is a section of the review that contains some issues that I was able to resolve (see updates below). I'm leaving it for the sake of posterity and transparency.
I have a few semi-major issues with the product:
*The sound is kind of muffled. It may be a matter of tweaking the settings, but so far I've tried changing the sound profile in the Dolby app that comes installed and it didn't do anything.
*The fans are loud. I don't really notice them while I'm playing a game, but if they speed up while I'm browsing the internet or something it's annoying. It actually sounds like one of them may be unbalanced or rubbing against the case. As I'm writing this I realized that I've never used the laptop without the frost core module installed, so I'll try removing it to see if that solves the problem.
Neither of those issues are bad enough that I'd consider returning it or sending it in to be serviced.
I used the version of the Predator 17 with the GTX 980m card for a while and it didn't have any of those problems. Maybe this is just what early adopters have to deal with? If the fan noise corrects itself and/or I can improve the sound then I'll likely update this to give it 5 stars.
Update 1: I removed the frost core and the noise is gone. The fans now sound as they should. I'm going to see if Acer will replace the frost core, but I'm not sure it's really needed so if they ask me to pay for shipping I will likely just leave it be. If I can figure out the sound issue then I'll raise my rating to 5 stars.
Update 2: I'm not entirely sure how it happened, maybe the drivers were updated, but the sound is fine now. It actually sounds awesome. The sound is rich and the speakers get pretty loud. I'm upping my rating to five stars.
Update 3: Changed the description of the review, reordered it a bit and added a note about cooling (thanks for the idea, TheMeta14!)
Replacement came in and runs great. I am pretty happy with this laptop. The only exception is that the 256GB SSD are two crappy 128GB Lite ON SATAs in RAID 0. Some review websites had NVME Toshiba drives in the first slot and the second slot open. I was looking forward to being able to add a second M.2 SSD for extra capacity. Pretty much a bait and switch from ACER. I understand that this is pretty common for review models vs what actually is sold. I am leaving at 3 stars for that reason alone. Everything else is good. Battery life is decent even for a gsync panel. About 4-5 hrs for general use. Haven't tried gaming, but expecting 1-2 hrs max.
Screen is nice. 1080p nice and bright with no bleeding. While it is G-SYNC, it is only 60Hz and I was only able to overclock the panel to 65Hz before running into issues. One nice feature is that even though the CPU is not over-clockable (by a novice at least), the GPU can be overclocked with built in ACER software. No benchmarks worth sharing yet (because I planned on putting all my games on the second M.2 ssd that I now realize I have no room for.
Mixed bag of emotions right now. I do like that laptop, but feel duped into thinking I was getting an NVME Toshiba 256GB drive and an open slot when I got two crappy 128GB Lite On drives with no expansion room.
*** Final update
Well left button in the trackpad lost spring and started sticking an hour in. I wanted to like this computer, but QC is an obvious issue with this batch. Sending back for refund. Maybe I will try Alienware.
