Pros: i7 4702 Quad Core Processor is Very Fast
8gb 1600mhz ram Performs Wonderfully
Nvidia GTX 765m is Powerful and Graphics are Amazing
256gb mSata SSD Offers High Performance Storage
Killer WiFi Card Provides Fast and Stable Connections
This is where the Razer Blade really shines. The build quality is phenomenal. Everything is seamlessly designed. The all aluminum body is excellently crafted with a sleek matte black finish. The keyboard and trackpad are the best I have seen on any laptop.
The display on the Razer Blade has seemed to receive quite a bit of criticism. I think it is great. A 1600x900 resolution is perfect for a 14" display and provides higher performance/fps while gaming. The colors are bright and vivid. I have noticed no ghosting at all on this display!
Everything about this laptop is a pro!
Overall Review: This is by far the best laptop I have ever owned, used, seen. The build quality is something one can really appreciate it. It packs all of the performance I need in an amazingly small form factor. The keyboard and trackpad are the best I have seen on a laptop. High quality and very responsive. This laptop is as good as it gets, and is what you can expect from Razer.
Pros: Fast Connection Speeds
Made by intel
Overall Review: I installed this card in my Razer Blade 14". It provides a much faster and reliable connection than the previous card. (Killer 1202) Especially when further in distance from my router. Killer is a marketing hype. This isn't the first time I have had issues with Killer cards. From my experience, they are unreliable and inconsistent.
Pros: Can't decide
Cons: Can't decide that either...
Overall Review: I really don't hear much of a difference using this software. Gave it 5 eggs for being free!
Pros: Almost instant email delivery
Overall Review: Print it off, go spend it. I still can't believe you can buy gift cards with a newegg preferred account. Used it to get a gift.
Pros: Almost instant delivery to email.
Pros: Fast reads and writes
Matches my Razer Gear
Overall Review: Its a flash drive, do people really go all out on these things in reviews? Well I can say that it seems pretty quick to me, and I have had no problems with it at all.
Pros: Pretty High Quality Display for the price.
Bright Vivid Colors, Dark Blacks.
Fast Response Times/Refresh Rates.
No Ghosting or Trailing in Games.
No Dead Pixels!
Cons: Thought it had built in Speakers... HaHa
Overall Review: This is by far the best monitor I have ever owned! I am really happy with it. It is my first 1920x1200 16:10 display, and I am not disappointed. I really like the extra height. Seems to perform well in gaming, and works great when I am doing my programming work. The extra height really helps when utilizing multiple windows at once. Love It!
Pros: Got it for free with my Razer Blade 14".
Cons: Wouldn't know, gave it away.
Overall Review: I got this mouse for free and gave it to my girlfriends Mom for her laptop. She says it works great.
Pros: Great Design!
All Black Aluminum!
Comes with sound/mic splitter and decent case.
Cons: I think they will scratch fairly easy with the black paint on aluminum.
Overall Review: I personally think they sound better than my friends $150 Beats. I have been using them more with my iPhone 5s than anything. Work great with that. I also use them with my Razer Blade 14" when I am on the go.
Pros: i7 Haswell Quad Core is Fast!
Nvidia GTX 765m handles my games at max settings!
256 gb Samsung mSATA SSD stock!
Killer WiFi card performs great!
Keyboard and Touch Pad best I have seen on a laptop!
Appearance and Build Quality:
I hate to say it, but this is what really pushed me to buy the Razer Blade. I love everything about its appearance. The matte black paint job, sleek slim design, glowing green keyboard and Razer logo on lid. Sharpest looking laptop I have ever seen in my opinion. The build quality is great as well. The aluminum makes it feel nice and sturdy. No flex whatsoever! You would have to see one in person to truly appreciate it. Pictures do it no justice!
Cons: TN Panel has horrid viewing angles.
CPU, GPU, RAM all soldered to the board.
I would say price, but you get what you pay for!
Overall Review: The 1600x900 resolution does not bother me at all. That is perfectly acceptable for a 14" laptop. However, this display is about as TN as they come. Mediocre colors, bad viewing angles. I did not dock an egg for this because I was already aware of the display quality and I understand why they went with this panel. Razer was more so aimed at straight performance. A 1920x1080 IPS display may have provided a better picture quality, but the 1600x900 TN provides higher FPS in games and faster refresh rates. When I am at home I have my Blade hooked up to an Asus 1920x1200 IPS 2ms(GTG) Monitor and I can play League of Legends at max settings using it. All that matters to me. I am only using the laptop display when I am on the go.
Another thing to keep in mind with this laptop is that the Processor, GPU, and RAM are all soldered to the board. The GPU is expected, but the Processor and especially the RAM being soldered to the board may steer you away from this laptop. Just know that if one thing fails, the Blade will need a whole new motherboard.
Pros: Nice Design
No extra power adapter needed
Overall Review: I was looking for an external HDD for random stuff and back ups. I happen to come across this one on a really good sale. Only cost me $70.00 with free shipping. Worth every penny.
Pros: Hooked it up, works great. Does what I need it to.
Cons: Takes up two usb ports, which is not stated anywhere in item details that I could see
Overall Review: I purchased this item for my girlfriend because she purchased a Sony Vaio all in one touch computer from newegg, and she failed to realize there was no disc drive on it until she went to burn a cd. Funny right?
Pros: Awesome picture quality, fast, operates very smooth, very nice design, great looking computer. No issues at all with it!
Cons: None as of yet!
Overall Review: After I read some reviews online I was starting to doubt my purchase. There was comments about it being slow, not that great, etc, etc. This thing is quick and fast for only having an i5. All of the poor comments I read were FALSE!
Pros: FAST, High Quality, High Performance, Has Everything I Need and Much More! Processor is snappy, plenty of RAM and HDD space, and the graphics are AMAZING for a laptop!
It is an Asus... where can you go wrong?
Cons: Has Windows 8, really not a con but I wanted a Windows 7 Model. All sold out :(
Overall Review: You can not beat such a top of the line laptop for such a fair price. Higher specs than an Alienware I looked at which was over $500.00 more!
