    I really would like to recommend this laptop to gamers on a budget that are looking for a gaming computer, it honestly seems to be an amazing value for the performance that it has. The RTX 2060 is really fast for almost every game, I was able to play Cyberpunk 2077 in high settings and 1080p without a problem with super smooth frame rates, and with RTX on and some settings to ultra I got close to 30 frames per second to 50, depending on the scene, so yeah this is an amazing and very capable gaming laptop. This computer is mostly for 1080p gaming, and should perform amazingly at this resolution, it is capable of 4K to an external monitor but expect Xbox series S like performance at 4K in games.

    The I7 is fast and with the SSD you get incredible loading speeds. The SSD only comes with 250 gigabytes but if you have an external USB hard drive you can install your games there and run them without the need of spending more money, GOG and Steam work this way without a problem. The 16 gigabyte ram is very good, installed in dual channel so it works fast, you can run your monitor in 60hz or 144hz, the image is nice and very sharp, with nice colors to it, but it does have some white bleeding on very dark scenes, personally I think is ok considering how fast the monitor is and how good the colors and sharpness looks, besides this is a budget laptop.

    The dual fans are ideal for cooling, I recommend setting the fans speed to max when gaming on demanding games, the fans do make some loud noises but it’s expected for a laptop with this much power and this small form factor, you can customize your fan speeds to your preference, I personally recommend a cooling base that has heavy ventilation when gaming to increase the longevity of the internal components. The backlight keyboard is red with different dimming levels, you can disable the auto turn off within the Nitrosense app and keep it lit indefinitely. The keyboard I personally find it very comfortable, it clicks nice and does not make too much noise, it feels like a quality keyboard all around. The mouse pad seems nice, does not have a back light but worked well, the Bluetooth seems to be very nice, I don’t seem to notice any lag when using my portable Sony speaker with this laptop, and the sound is very nice and clean.

    The frame and body are made of plastic, it does bend a little but I haven’t had any issues with it, it will probably last easily 3 years if taken care properly, I really like the combination of black and red it definitely stands out. The sound of the speakers is just average; I really recommend using some Bluetooth speakers that have heavy bass instead of the stock ones.

    For anyone wanting an amazing budget laptop I really recommend this Nitro 5 version, it has the right level of performance and you can’t go wrong in gaming with an Intel and Nvidia combination, yes the computer is made of plastic completely but the internal components and the performance that you get is really a great value at this time. I found very useful the option in the Nvidia control panel that lets you use your GPU on specific programs, like Excel, PowerPoint or internet browsers, further speeding up your aps and your performance when using it for Home office work, overall I’m very satisfied with this purchase.

    1. The USB ports they are hard to plug in and plug out of the laptop and will over time get lose inside the laptop and can disconnect when plug in

    2. This laptop CPU will run 🔥 while the GPU doesn’t why who knows
    The highest record temperature that I saw when running sea of thieves was 208F degrees out of the 3 hours and 43 minutes I played.

    3. Make sure u clean (monthly) the CPU and GPU to avoid higher temperatures

    4. If u get on this laptop to play more then 2 hours a day in 18 weeks your A,S,D,W on your keyboard will have start to fade out meaning that you will not see the letters clearly due to your finder’s rubbering them off slowly.

    5. This laptop has only 237GB but u can put another hard drive in if u want just make sure it’s the right one

    6. That’s all hope this was helpful 😇

    Pues el titulo de la laptop esta mal, ya que si me llego la rtx 2060, muy buena laptop, ya la estuve usando y los juegos pesados corren a 60 fps sin problemas, lo que he detectado es que si se caliente, estoy revisando el tema de los ventiladores ya que mi cpu llego hasta los 90c.
    También tiene mi pantalla algo de blacklight bleeding, un detalle que no es muy pronunciado pero que si se aprecia, pero por el precio la verdad es que ya depende de uno si le da mucha importancia o no. Por el otro lado realmente no tiene garantía, solo es la devolución con amazon no hay cambios.

    Por ese motivo me quedo con l laptop ya que por el precio que tuvo no hay nada que se le compare en mexico.

    Great little computer for the price. Runs call of duty no issues. For the price it has pros and cons pro Is it’s pretty fast con the very tiny hard drive cant hold more then 2 games and as a gaming laptop this is horrible. I understand it’s not top end but it’s not cheap either so would love more room.

    I almost bought a 2019 Lenovo Y540 but then I found this 728c variant of the Nitro 5. No other laptops had a 144hz display with an RTX 2060 and 16GB of RAM. I bet a turnoff for many is the smaller SSD storage. For me, I just spent ~$100 on 1TB of SSD. for a total payment of ~1.2k I feel very satisfied.

    I am not a hardcore gamer. I only probably play 2-3hr sessions every other day if not like twice a week. I noticed that games like Valorant bring the CPU temp to an average of 75 Celsius. I can only imagine what happens if you play a higher demanding game like Warzone.

    Fan noise is as I expected with a gaming laptop. when you game it is loud, but if you game with a headset you will not hear it and it is not detectable on your microphone. When you are using the laptop for everyday use, every now and then the fan will turn on but on the quietest setting to cool things but turns off after several minutes. I am getting used to it though.

    As mentioned at the top, SSD storage is small in comparison to competitors’ laptops. It will not be a problem if you play only some games, but if you play alot, I recommend getting an additional SSD. You can easily find SSDs between the $100-$150 range, just make sure you know or have a friend who knows how to properly install it.

    The only reason why I give it 4 stars is because the battery life is very short. It does not deliver the 8 hours as described; more around 4 hours at most. I always play while plugged in. Playing unplugged will probably make the battery life even shorter! The only reason I noticed the shorter battery life was because I used a Macbook before this and their batteries last around 10 hours. I dream of the day that Acer rids of the 2.5” drive bay for a bigger battery 🙂

    I am super stoked to be an owner of this Acer Nitro 5. It has its quirks for sure, but for me, they are overshadowed by the perks. If you are a relatively casual gamer I really think you will like this just as much as I am liking it.
