​​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 Stealth 13 (2020) review: great gaming on the go

 

Razer is better than ever, but the competition has caught up.

Sturdy, compact, beautiful build ; Colorful keyboard with updated layout ; Powerful gaming specs with a 120Hz screen

Expensive compared to portable competitors ; Performance can’t match larger gaming laptops ; Large top and bottom bezels (by current standards)

But Asus still keeps the crown

Razer Blade Stealth 13 (2020) Review

 

Premium, compact design ; Gaming chops, 120Hz display are unique at its screen size ; Good battery life ; Improved keyboard layout ; USB Type-A and -C ports (two of each) ; Support for Wi-Fi 6, Windows Hello

Performance won’t match larger gaming laptops ; No dedicated video-out ports

The updated Blade Stealth 13 is the best version yet of Razer's gaming ultraportable. A compact metal build, a gaming-ready GPU, and a robust feature set elevate it to the upper echelon of premium ultraportables.

Razer’s Blade 15 doesn’t look like a gaming laptop, but it behaves like one

 

It may not look like a gaming laptop, but it certainly is one — for better and worse.

Solid build quality with understated design ; Great high-refresh rate display ; Plenty of power for gaming, productivity, or creative work ; Windows Hello login and lots of useful ports

Shallow keyboard with frustrating layout quirks ; Poor palm rejection on the trackpad ; Abysmal battery life ; Loud, constant fan noise

So while I love the looks of the Blade 15 Advanced, especially in the Mercury white finish, and I adore the power on tap and the buttery-smooth display, it’s not a computer I can really recommend for anything other than gaming.

Razer Blade Advanced: One of our favorite gaming designs, but be prepared to pay for it

 

The 15-inch Razer Blade makes the jump to new Nvidia RTX graphics, but even the entry level RTX model is expensive.

Typically great Razer design, at its best in the alternate Mercury White color scheme. Excellent performance, especially considering the small size. One of the only gaming laptops with a very thin screen bezel.

Faster RTX 2070 and RTX 2080 GPUs are not available in the white color scheme. The system can get very hot, which has led to some online complaints.

The Razer Blade 15-inch gaming laptop keeps up with the Nvidia RTX trend. The base model feels expensive, but the higher-end version hits a good mix of price and performance.

Razer Blade Stealth (2019)

 

Razer's 2019 Blade Stealth ultraportable, a smart refinement of its excellent predecessor, packs a sharp (and sharp-edged) redesign, a new dedicated graphics option, and snappy performance with a strong supporting feature set.

Sleek redesign. Super-thin bezels enable smaller footprint. Good performance (and discrete graphics option). Choice between 1080p and 4K displays. Bigger touchpad, better keyboard. Long battery life. USB-C with Thunderbolt 3.

No more per-key keyboard backlighting. Models configured with Nvidia graphics can get pricey.

Bottom Line: Razer's 2019 Blade Stealth ultraportable, a smart refinement of its excellent predecessor, packs a sharp (and sharp-edged) redesign, a new dedicated graphics option, and snappy performance with a strong supporting feature set.

Razer Blade Stealth review

 

One of the unexpected surprises from earlier this year was the Razer Blade Stealth , a high-end 12.5-inch ultrabook from Razer that represented a major shift for that PC and accessory maker. Rather than another highly designed gaming laptop, the...

The Razer Blade Stealth includes a Core i7 processor and high-res touchscreen even in its lowest-end configuration; it has more ports than other 12-inch laptops and a fun Chroma backlit keyboard.

It's bigger and heavier than 12-inch laptops from Apple, Asus and others. The thick bezel around the screen feels dated and configuration options are limited.

The Razer Blade Stealth offers better specs for less money than the competition, and includes features others lack, such as a high-res touch screen and full-size USB ports. The design is slick, the price is right, but it's not as slim and portable 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
