Bottom Line

The Acer Nitro 5 AN515-51-55WL 15.6-inch gaming laptop has an affordable price tag and comes with decent hardware, but it runs hot under a heavy load and the storage space is quite limiting.


The Acer Nitro 5 AN515-51-55WL 15.6-inch gaming laptop has received positive reviews for its great value, its decent performance thanks to its Intel i5-7300HQ and 8GB of RAM, and the 256GB SSD, which makes load times and boot times lightning quick and makes the overall system performance feel fast and smooth. Furthermore, the 15.6-inch IPS Full-HD display is said to be good of quality, and the battery life is good for a gaming laptop. While the Nvidia 1050Ti is a decent card, it is an entry level card. Others noted that it can heat up quite a bit and that while the screen is good, it is quite dark. Lastly, while the SSD is fast, 256GB of space is fairly limiting and may fill up quite quickly. All in all, the Acer Nitro 5 AN515-51-55WL drives a commendable performance, but it may run hot under heavy load and the screen may be too dark for some.
