Razer Blade 17 review: Pleasant, but not perfect

 

The updated Razer Blade 17 features the latest components and some slight tweaks to the design. Is that enough?

Great design and build quality Powerful for gaming Extensive ports Excellent, colorful screen Surface stays relatively cool

Throttled CPU performance Poor battery life Very expensive

“The Razer Blade 17 isn't perfect, but it's still among the better 17-inch gaming laptops you can buy.”

​​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 (2022) Review: Still a Stylish Gaming Laptop for the Deep Pocketed

 

Razer undoubtedly knows how to make a great gaming laptop. But, like Apple, you don't buy a Razer for value.

Expandable RAM and storage ; Fantastic port mix including a UHS-II SD card reader ; Three display choices to match gaming needs ; 2-year battery warranty

Palm rests get hot under load ; Expensive

Razer Blade 15 Advanced Model (2022) Review

 

Best-in-class design with a few small improvements from 2021 ; Intel "Alder Lake" CPU and Nvidia RTX 3070 Ti deliver strong performance in all types of games ; Attractive 240Hz QHD display ; Varied port selection, 1080p webcam, and a top-notch touchpad

High starting price, even higher as tested ; Mediocre battery life undercuts portability appeal

The Razer Blade 15 Advanced Model is still one of the costliest gaming laptops, but the latest CPU and GPU silicon bring its performance to the next level while maintaining a premium portable design.

Razer Blade 17 (2022) review: faster and cooler than ever

 

Razer studied the blade.

Great QHD performance ; Runs cooler and relatively quietly ; Still among the best keyboard / trackpad combo

Lousy battery life ; USB-C charging limited to 54W ; Expensive ; Still the same ol’ design

Razer’s 2022 Blade 17 comes bearing a few welcome cosmetic changes. The more head-turning tweaks are its more powerful components like the 12th Gen Intel CPU and Nvidia’s RTX 3080 Ti, which yield impressive performance.

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 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
