When Razer offered to send over their new Blade 15, i jumped straight onto my emails and said yes as fast as i possibly could. But for a couple of weeks i wasn’t able to do anything with it, because the lovely NBN co decided to be their typical selves and f**k me over. Anyway, here’s the review.
Big thanks to Razer for sending this out for review!
Design and First Impressions
The whole body of the Razer blade is made fully from aluminium and is super duper sturdy. The keyboard has literally no flex at all. Included in the box is the Blade itself, the power brick and some legendary Razer stickers. On the left side is the power jack, gigabit Ethernet, 2 USB 3.2 ports and a 3.5 mm audio jack. On the right you will find Mini display port (1.4), HDMI 2.0 port , USB 3.2 port, and a Thunderbolt 3 port, plus a kensington lock.
Above the screen is the webcam, my model has a 720p webcam. Also around the monitor is the antennas for the WiFi.
To the left and right of the keyboard are the speakers, and on the right is the power button.
The bottom of the Blade is where you’ll find the 4 rubber feet to stop it from sliding around. On the top or the ‘lid’ is the oh so famous Razer snake logo that lights up while the laptop is on.
The speakers are pretty decent on the Blade, they are decently loud and don’t distort even at loud volumes. They have good, clear audio and decent bass. They aren’t two special but they’re good enough.
The keyboard on the Razer blade is amazing, it has a nice clicky but tactile feel to it and doesn’t feel mushy. It is RGB but on the model i have it unfortunately isn’t per key RGB but the zone lighting is good enough. The layout is completely fine in my opinion, unlike some other reviews that claim it has a ‘weird’ layout.
The trackpad on the Razer blade is pretty big, it is very sensitive and easy to glide you finger or fingers around on it. Both the left and right buttons are easy to actuate and the trackpad does support touch clicking and gestures.

The Razer Blade 15 comes in at a whopping $3,549 AUD, this is a little expensive but for the features you get and the overall build, it is somewhat understandable.
The Razer blade 15 boasts a full 15.6″, 1080p, 144hz matte display. The display has super thin bezels coming in at only 4.9mm. It has decent colour accuracy and recreates scenes really well. The screen does come factory calibrated so you don’t have to worry about that, and is 100% sRGB.
The model i received has a core i7-9750h and RTX 2060 graphics.
I had a great time with the Razer Blade 15, it is a great notebook and i highly recommend it.
I would like to say another big thankyou to Razer for sending this out for review and dealing with all the issues that happened during the review period.
Buy one today from Umart.
