ACER Nitro 5 Thanos Edition Review: Mad Titan Approved?

Display is good for casual gaming

The Nitro 5 has a 15.6-inch full HD IPS display with ACER’s own ComfyView tech built in, which is their fancy way of saying that it has a matte, anti-glare screen. Viewing angles are good, though the notebook’s display has rather thick bezels on the side.

The notebook doesn’t have fancy display tech like G-Sync, but honestly it doesn’t have the specs to take advantage of the tech anyway.

As for actual display quality, it’s perfectly OK for gaming and multimedia. The notebook comes with an Infinity War splash screen when you start it up that replaces the regular ACER logo and Windows startup images that you typically see. The notebook also comes with Infinity War wallpapers as well.

Keyboard is a joy to type and play with, speakers need a little work though

The SE Thanos Nitro 5 comes with a full QWERTY keyboard with a numpad. The keys feel nice to type on, have plenty of travel despite not sporting mechanical keys.

The keyboard is also backlit, though you can’t change the color from the default red. The touchpad is responsive enough but you’ll probably be plugging in a mouse if you’re really serious about gaming with it. It’s a shame that ACER did not include a similarly themed gaming mouse for the notebook.

The notebook produces decent sound, though it distorts a bit at full volume.
