The bigger screen size of the Acer Aspire V17 Nitro Black Edition is just one reason to opt for it (PWM report)

61FX+TmEjuL._SX355_With the previous generation, Acer didn’t present a good reason to opt for the 17-inch version over the 15-inch version of the popular Aspire V15 and V17 Nitro laptops. This year, however, is a different story, intentionally or not.

While the 15-inch version boasts a pretty good IPS panel, the display uses PWM across all brightness levels and thus affecting one’s eyesight in a negative way. But as for the 17-inch version, well it lacks the so-called screen flickering effect. This means that the display is user-friendly and doesn’t harm one’s eyesight. You can see on the graph below.
