Great value for the price I paid ($904.79). The separate components would have cost just as much, if not more to put together myself, especially if you consider the cost of Windows 10... Case isn't too gaudy. It's a little over-designed for my taste, but at least it doesn't look like a decapitated cyborg... Acer bloatware is easy to uninstall, but there is quite a bit of it.
3.5 / 5 stars - Acer's Nitro 50 is a no-fuss, basic gaming desktop with modest power for 60fps HD gaming that doesn't cost a fortune.
Review date: October 24, 2018 | Model: Acer Nitro 50
The Acer Nitro 50 is a fine gaming desktop for mainstream shoppers, occupying a space just below midrange and, in our test configuration, above true entry-level pricing. Performance is on-point and reliable for 1080p gaming and quick enough for general tasks and light multimedia jobs. On a component level, however, we didn't note too much that distinguishes it from the Dell Inspiron Gaming Desktop, however, essentially filling the same role at a higher price. Despite being less expensive, Dell's tower, as we tested it, offers more storage via a combination of speedy SSD and roomy hard drive, and it has a nicer design, while all else remains even. As such, the Inspiron Gaming Desktop retains our Editors' Choice award. But if you like the Nitro 50's design, you prefer the space savings, or one of the other Nitro 50 configurations fits your needs, it's a solid alternative.
