Razer Blade 14 review: The usurper has arrived

 

The Razer Blade 14 is a huge success, combining an amazingly thin chassis with incredible gaming performance.

“The Razer Blade 14 steals the crown as the best gaming laptop you can buy right now.”

​​Razer Blade review (2014): a 'no-compromise' premium gaming laptop

 

The newest Razer Blade is the company's best laptop yet, but it trades epic battery life for an exceptional display.

Fast and powerful ; Great 3,200 x 1,800 display ; Slim, compact and attractive

Expensive ; Screen resolution can undercut performance ; Shorter battery life than the 2013 model

Razer CEO Min-Liang Tan describes the 2014 Razer Blade as a "no-compromise" gaming laptop, and that's almost accurate. Between the machine's screaming graphics performance, its thin chassis and that new QHD+ touchscreen, I was hard-pressed to find a...

Razer Blade 15 Advanced Model (Late 2021) Review

 

Same premium, sleek, and light all-metal build ; Top-end performance in our RTX 3070 configuration with 360Hz display ; Superior touchpad, upgraded 1080p webcam ; All models include at least 1TB of storage, a good fit for gaming

Pricey, especially as configured ; Chassis gets quite hot in spots while gaming ; Diminished battery life

This modest update to the premium Razer Blade 15 ups the ante with a newer CPU and improved 1080p webcam. While the battery life falls short, its GeForce RTX graphics and high-refresh screen options deliver a top-end gaming experience.

Razer Blade 14 Review

 

Super-slim 14-inch metal build ; Potent AMD Ryzen 9 CPU and up to Nvidia RTX 3080 graphics ; RTX 3070 and 165Hz 1440p display in test model enable high-end gaming ; All models include HDMI, USB-C, and 1TB of SSD storage ; Per-key RGB lighting and...

Steep starting price ; 14-inch screen may be small for some gaming enthusiasts

The Blade 14 is an all-new gaming-laptop design for Razer, bringing the trademark premium build (and AMD CPU power!) to a size and component sweet spot between the Blade Stealth 13 and Blade 15.

Razer Blade 14 review: pint-size power

 

A powerful, pricey package.

Portable 14-inch build ; Powerful eight-core processor and top-end GPU ; QHD 165Hz display option

Pricey for its size ; Battery life is just okay ; No Thunderbolt support

Razer has crammed an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070, an AMD Ryzen 9 5900HX, and a QHD 165Hz display into a compact 14-inch package. The rest of this laptop is as Razer Blade as they come.

Razer Blade 15 Studio Edition Review

 

Sleek aluminum build. ; Stunning 4K OLED screen. ; Long battery life. ; Huge touchpad. ; Good cooling.

Fast, but doesn't top the performance charts. ; No ISV certifications or eight-core CPU option. ; Keyboard lacks tactile feel. ; Standard warranty just one year.

Razer's stylish white Blade 15 Studio Edition turns the Blade 15 Advanced gaming laptop into a mobile workstation competitor with a 4K OLED screen, Quadro RTX graphics, and Nvidia Studio driver support. Sleek and all aluminum, it's as elegant as...

Razer Blade (2014)

 

The newest Razer Blade ultraportable gaming laptop has a lot to love, but we had very high hopes and came away a bit disappointed.

Slim, ultraportable design. New Nvidia GeForce GTX 870M graphics card. Upgraded graphics. Indium Gallium Zinc Oxide (IGZO) display with 3,200-by-1,800 resolution and touch capability.

Runs very hot. High-resolution display may actually hamper performance. Shorter battery life than previous model reduces portability.

Conclusion The Razer Blade (2014) is disappointing, mostly because we had such high hopes. Razer still manages to outfit the laptop with some amazing capabilities, but it feels like the company reached too far, too soon, stepping up the resolution at...

Review: Razer Blade (2014)

 

The latest version of Razer's perennial hit -- a sleek, super-powered gaming laptop -- has been updated with a better screen, and it's still the...

Still the best way to get gaming to go. Responsive touchscreen and touchpad. Impressive speaker quality. Upped resolution now supports 3200 x 1800 pixels

Dimmer screen is a letdown, as is the price hike. What, no page up/page down keys? One key’s backlight died during testing

Razer Blade (2014) review: laptop gaming never looked so good

 

I feel spoiled. Ever since I started playing games on the new Razer Blade gaming laptop, I've had a tough time enjoying them practically anywhere else. My TV and my desktop PC only display games at...

Great design ; Sharp, high-resolution display ; Good touchpad performance

Poor battery life ; No SD card slot ; Some games don't work at full resolution

Razer Blade 14 (2014) review

 

Ah, to be thin and beautiful. In the world of laptops, that feels like the mission across the board, except when it comes to gaming laptops. But what if there were a Retina MacBook Pro of gaming? What if it had a super high-res touch display and...

The new Razer Blade boasts the same beautifully thin design, but adds a sharp 3,200x1,800 touch display and advanced Nvidia graphics.

The battery life is worse than last year's model's. Adding more SSD storage can turn this into a pricey laptop.

Razer’s newest gaming laptop trades ultralong battery life for a fantastic screen and even better graphics. It’s a trade worth making: this is the best Razer gaming laptop, and the best thin gaming PC anywhere.
