Excellent customer service on best buy Hato Rey, Puerto Rico It, just want to start saying its a very slick looking laptop. afterall its a "stealth gaming laptop" ,
Now as far performance, really good and fast the drivers were up to date which was very good, althought i was concerned how hot the cpu temp from a gaming pc, the fans do their job but you hear them and it gets hot sometimes. when playing a really heavy game, my advice just play with the charger connected.
the screen is amazing and gaming on it is awesome. I used it to play final fantasy 14 online and it looked and played awesome.
Very pleased and happy. regarding With a system like this you end up having to use the power supply a lot cause i noticed the battery drains pretty quickly like it only last 2 hours if your not hooked up. but after all is gaming laptop, for everything this gaming laptop offer is really good! and as an art studet as myself that im not gonna use it for gaming that much, but for art programs susch as photoshop and clip studio and toonboom harmony it runs creative programs very fast and smooth.Sep 10, 2021 12:36
This laptop is very fast. No issues with performance. The only concern I have is the quality control. The plastic trim on the edge of my screen is falling off and im constantly having to push it back on. It seems this should not happen when spending this much on a laptop..Oct 09, 2021 22:13
This is a very good gaming laptop by MSI. This MSI GS66 Stealth comes with an i7-10750H 6 core cpu, 2070 max-q graphics card and 1tb m.2 nvme. The RAM is upgradable to 64 gigs and there is another m.2 slot for another nvme. This laptop looks great, slim and sleek almost as good as a Razerblade 15. The keypad is really nice with big keys which makes it easy to get used to and typing is feels good. The touchpad is wide and smooth. I enjoy gaming on it. The only small issues I had and these were minor. The laptop does get hot when gaming over an hour. I wish the brightness went higher on the screen. The MSI logo on the screen should be grayed or blacked out as it is called the stealth. Overall this is a very good laptop. It has the windows hello feature which my razerblade does not. It's powerful enough for gaming and content creation. The MSI GS66 works well with Steel Series Aerox 3 wireless gaming mouse (pictured).Jul 12, 2021 01:15
Excellent gaming laptop, can also be used for office work. I was satisfied with this purchase and the customer service.Aug 27, 2021 15:53
The product is awesome I enjoy everything easy to carry with fast speed and excellent graphics display and easy navigationOct 01, 2021 15:54
This laptop has been running well the first few days I bought. Now keep in mind this is only a laptop not all games are going to run great on it but majority of games do run well on it.Sep 03, 2021 16:26
Best laptop I have ever had would buy again and recommend to a friend so fast and works so well for gaming.Jul 18, 2021 20:09
Laptop runs great, I can use it for school and gaming with no issues.Aug 17, 2021 17:01
Razer Blade 15 Base Gaming Laptop: Cast spells to fight evil with this 15.6-inch 4K OLED Razer Blade 15 Base gaming laptop. The 512GB SSD provides ample space to expand your library, while the Intel Core i7 processor and 16GB of RAM let you plan team strategy via voice chat while playing. This Bluetooth-enabled Razer Blade 15 gaming laptop features an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 graphics card for seamless gameplay at high frame rates.
I actually bought this laptop the first time and I was convinced I made a mistake for gaming so I had returned it for the Advanced 2020 model with the 300hz display --- and the colors are HORRIBLE in comparison to the OLED model of the Blade. If you do any productivity work and do any gaming outside the realm of competition or hxc first person shooting games too, then you will want this OLED version of the Blade over the high refresh rates. ESO on this display is gorgeous and once you see it and how beasty the system is overall you will never be able to go back to a 1080p screen for productivity work and gaming. I thoroughly regret having returned it the first time so I had to wait a week for the 300hz blade to get to my house so i could return it and buy the OLED version for a second time. Please trust me that you will want the OLED if you are a student, programmer, or do any kind of productivity or design work next to heavy (casual) gaming. I am giving this 4 stars Razer and only because it does get a bit hot sometimes under heavy load but also because this is 2020 and we need 4k/2560×1440 displays with high refresh rates on laptops!!!Sep 02, 2020 00:29
I love my Razer Blade. Usually all my stuff is from ASUS ROG, but after looking a lot of YouTube videos and reading reviews, I decided to buy a Razer Blade. I I definitely don’t regret to go with a 4K OLED screen, because video games and movies just look great! I wish, I would have been able to test it at the store, but they don’t have any games installed (Best Buy you need to fix that). Now I know that I can play most games on ultra settings with 60 FPS, but I have to scale down the resolution to 60-70% and I can’t use ray tracing, DLSS helps though if the game supports it. I am actually surprised that I can play Forza Horizon 4 4K with around 50 FPS, of course most people will say I rather play 1080p with a higher refresh rate, but I prefer the contrast & colors of the OLED.
I think it’s a great laptop, I would definitely recommend it.
PS: you can buy cool skins for it that also protects the laptop for scratches.Oct 31, 2020 23:09
Only downside is that the fan can get loud if you are playing in a hot environment.Nov 01, 2021 06:41
Oled screens are better than matte screens with high refresh rate. This laptop is a creator, with the ability to game as well. Performance combining with cooling system and thin and lightweight makes it an ideal laptop to carry around. It symbolizes "WORK HARD, PLAY HARD."Feb 19, 2021 19:49
Awesome machine if you can get it on sale. Macbook pro build quality with some real impressive specs. Benchmarks are fantastic but the cooling system could use some improvement.Mar 13, 2021 08:02
Plays lots of games at max settings when resolution is changed to full HD. 4k screen looks amazing. The laptop is extremely thin for what its packing.Jan 23, 2021 12:35
Meets my needs for gaming and video editing basically don't even use my desktop any longer.Apr 16, 2021 15:44
Overall. this computer was excellent, has a great keyboard and screen, and great performance. things to improve on, however,
Better Quality control (Mine has no issues, your mileage may vary)
Possibly increase the size of the trackpad EVEN MORE, even though it is an excellent size
Better speaker quality
Better mic/camera quality for better windows hello
Better battery life
More synapse 3 options, not really anything bad though.
Excellent overallMay 31, 2020 20:53

Outclass the competition with up to an 8-core AMD Ryzen 9 4900HS CPU and potent GeForce RTX 2060 GPU that speed through everyday multitasking and gaming. Customize your fit with either a 120Hz gaming display or high-resolution WQHD panel, both Pantone Validated for superb color accuracy. Quad speakers pump out incredible Dolby Atmos sound for immersive movies, games, music, and more. Live life at Zephyrus speed with a light and portable gaming laptop, and be active anywhere. Styled in metallic Eclipse Gray or pearlescent Moonlight White, the Zephyrus G14 is a stunner. Its clean aesthetic travels easily from LAN parties to lecture halls, with fine-tuned detailing that puts it in a class of its own.
The G14 is a great laptop! Runs games and editing hadn’t been so much better with this laptop. Though first day I bought and opened up the box the screen had a line on the display screen. Which I was kind of disappointed in having bought a $1,300 laptop and dealing with a hardware issue. But other then just that issue the laptop is great if it isn’t dealt with a problem like mine had.Apr 17, 2021 08:57
I did a decent amount of research before buying this laptop. I knew right away I did not want something bigger than 14 inches. In fact, for me in particular, 14 inches is the ideal size to provide portability, comfort and an optimal viewing experience.
I wasn't looking for a heavy duty editing or gaming laptop. I do some gaming on the side and some use of the Adobe services/platforms but this was mainly for my job. This was a good buy.
Here are the pros:
-light and portable
-easy to use
-finger print login access as you turn it on
-graphics card performance under heavy use
-quality of screen
-Black design with the lighting works well (compared to the white design)
-Fan noise (it can get loud)
-Graphics can be weird (when I use a video conference service, the quality of the images is distorted, it looks as if I'm watching a VHS home video)
-It sometimes does not know which is the main display when connected to second/third monitor (for example, it might show that display 1 is the main display but taskbar and icons are showing in a different display) for this the connection needs to be reset to fix
-USB hubs should be either on the back or the left side of a gaming laptop-- this one has two in the right side
-Screen brightness when on battery is low
-No camera (not an issue for me, just noting it)
I use this with a USB dock, having three monitors connected to it, and am happy to say it does the job. It outperforms an i7 even though this device was not listed as compatible. Again, the only issue is some graphics problems when using video conferencing. But other than that, this thing performs great. I throw somewhat heavy work at it on a daily basis and I feel confident working knowing the device is not going to let me down.
The pricing itself was a bit of an issue, now in retrospect, because I bought this when new models came out. It seems I could have waited a week to buy a newer device for cheaper and with better performance. But that's life, I suppose.Apr 30, 2021 21:45
It is the fastest, coolest laptop I have ever owned, and the AniMe Matrix lights are my favorite part. Turns heads for sure wherever I go.
Make sure you update the drivers though (fairly easy to do, it comes with a built-in ASUS app for that). The other negative reviews about this crashing are honestly unfair. You should have some basic knowledge about how to use/maintain a computer - look elsewhere if you are still figuring out the difference between a keyboard and a USB stick.Nov 20, 2020 12:12
Great PC! Unfortunately I bought it at the wrong time. The 2021 RTX3060-5900HS was coming out. I returned this PC for no reason other than I'm waiting for the newer version. From all the reviews the performance is not overwhelming between the 2020 and the 2021 version. I'm holding out for the better screen (2K), only because I'm particular on clarity. If you really want this PC, wait for the discounted price, ASUS is now selling it for $1699.00.Apr 30, 2021 18:16
I haven’t had any issues with the laptop so far. Runs everything smoothly and has a good battery life. Plays my games well. Fan noise is noticeable when playing a graphically intense game. Lack of webcam is a downside, but at least I know the government isn’t watching.Mar 31, 2021 01:56
This product has been working very well for me from the very first day I bought it.Apr 02, 2021 15:57
When this laptop worked it was very nice. We bought this for my son for college. It is light and has great battery life. For after classes you get a gamer-ready laptop without the bling that says your're a gamer.
Unfortunately, the amount of blue screens on this is unacceptable. We looked at reddit and updated the firmware, etc. and the problem continued to persist. You can read about USB not working without a reboot. Can you imagine being in your online class and getting a random blue screen?
If not for that, I would give this 5 stars.... when it works.
We returned it and are now trying the lower model.Sep 04, 2020 16:49
Great laptop! I use this for video editing and gaming, and it does it's job fantastically!May 17, 2021 20:27
Razer Blade 15 Base Gaming Laptop: Battle foes and rescue the world with this mercury white Razer Blade gaming laptop. An Intel Core i7 processor and 16GB of RAM deliver fast performance, and the NVIDIA RTX 2070 graphics card provides real-time ray tracing for depicting lifelike reflections on the battlefield. This Razer Blade gaming laptop features a 15.6-inch 4K OLED screen for immersive gaming, and the 512GB SSD offers fast load times.
I purchased the Razer Blade 15 Base from Best Buy as "Used, Satisfactory" for a good price. The laptop is sturdy, well built with a metal body and a very beautiful 4k screen. It has plenty of ports and everything connects perfectly from ports to wi-fi to bluetooth. I have tried it with high end games as well as multiple graphic design (PhotoShop, Indesign, Fresco) windows open and it is very fast ad responsive. The only thing I have ugraded so far is the storage, I added a second SSD on the open M.2 port as 512 GB of memory is not as much as I would like. The process was just a matter or a few screws, unplugging the battery and plugging in the SSD. It could not be easier. The included 16 GB of RAM work very well, though that is something that in the future I would likely be upgrading (it can use up to 64 GB of RAM). This is not the latest model out there and I have read a number of reviews that critique the rtx 2070 Max-q. This is a mobile version of the graphics card and the new generation apparently is better, I'm no expert. The only thing I can say is that for me it has worked very well. Games play smoothly at the highest graphics. Though I am not one to measure frame rates or anything like that. A few things to note: The all metal body, when gaming gets hot. Really hot, as in, it will burn your fingers hot. Other users have recommended cooling pads for gaming, I have elevated the laptop from the table to allow more free flow of air through the computer's cooling fans at the bottom, that has worked pretty well. I also tend to use a gamepad or mouse/external keyboard for more comfortable gaming. Also, as beautiful as the screen is, it is 4K at 60hz. Even at a lower resolution all you will get is 60 hz because that is the native refresh rate. The screen is also glossy and has a lot of glare in daylight. Finally my one real disappointment with the purchase, I thought I had lucked out with a perfect looking, if used, laptop. Then I opened a white setting screen and saw it: burn in. There is an Xbox Gamepass ad as well as the computer info indelibly etched on the screen. It is really only noticeable in a light screen but I have noticed it when playing games with a bright daytime setting which is annoying. This is something that really should be clearly advertised when selling the computer. I expected scratches and some grit, not burn in on the screen. But it was a great deal so I kept it (over $600 savings from new). The burn in is not that noticeable under normal circumstances (I am including a photo) And my graphics design and digital artwork, I tend to do in an external tablet monitor anyway. Obviously this was a floor model that was left on for hours on end on thee same image, however, it should be noted that burn in is possible.Jul 05, 2021 09:37
I do tons of 4K RAW video editing and was looking for a laptop which can smoothly playback real-time frames and render at high speed. Don't get me wrong on why I choose this laptop for content creation. Believe me, I have purchased 10 different laptops including the latest MacBook 16" with 5600M, Asus M16, G14, G15, MSI 15 and bunch of others within 2 months and not single one has provided me with required power and feel to it.
At first I was skeptical to buy this model because it has been barely reviewed by the youtubers. It weird that how youtubers who review bunch of other laptops and benchmark them for content creators miss this one which is specifically designed for content creation. It's kind of annoying though.
So, in spite of all the confusions, I decided to purchase and give it a try. I don't play much games except FIFA once in awhile so I don't care about gaming benchmarks.
So now talking about the laptop, the design and built quality is totally amazing. This is probably the most beautiful laptop I have purchased in terms of how it looks. Even beats MacBook Pro 16. I don't know why Razer does not make this color available for their other laptops. You can barely notice any fingerprint and seriously you'll get addicted to it's look when you start using it. So, I updated all the windows thing and all the drivers. The 4k OLED screen is amazing & feels good to work on it but the flickering issues are too visible and put you out. For me it's not big of a deal. Everything went well until I started editing 4K.
The laptop get's so hot within 2-3 hours that you can barely use the keyboard. Then I started doing more research and found out that razer blade battery gets bloated under 1 year of use because the battery area also get's heated. Come on! And the power delivery when rendering 4K video is very low. MSI creator 15 (I returned MSI 15 because it's fan noise is loud is crazy loud) with RTX 2070 can render my sample test under 3 mins while this laptop took almost 15 mins. I simply don't get it. It's the same test. The Asus M16 and G14 2021 for that matter also took same 15 mins.
I'll still keep the laptop and do more test before my return period ends. Hopefully. I'll be able to convince myself to keep it but we'll see!Jul 28, 2021 22:19
This thing is BEAUTIFUL! But I ended up returning it because of one small issue. If it wasn't for this, I'd have LOVED to keep the laptop.
But the screen broke me. OLEDS are marketed towards creators and artists because of their wide gamut. But they reproduce all those lovely colors with a very high rate of deviation. Unless you keep this monitor on one, single calibrated brightness level, the colors will shift as you adjust the brightness. If you do color sensitive work, this will probably bother you. I calibrated this monitor about 5 times before figuring out what was going on. I also don't know if it was specific to my unit, but part of the screen was brighter than the rest.
With the bad out of the way, this is a really beautifully designed laptop! If you're gaming, you wouldn't notice the small color inaccuracies that a photographer or artist would, the blacks are deep, and colors punchy with this OLED panel.
The build is top of the line, all glass and metal- you really feel like you have something special. I'm fans are quiet as laptop fans go in Photoshop and Zbrush. I am not a gamer so I don't know about it's gaming preformance.
Protip: Undervolt it and you can get up to 7 hours of battery life, if the low battery life reported in reviews bothers you.Oct 08, 2020 17:18
I was a bit worried about going from a 2018 Advance model to this one, mostly because of the battery.
I have been using it for more than a week daily and I have to say that everything is holding up really well. I can get about 6-7 hours of light use (emails, documents and youtube videos) even with the screen set to 4K.
I know that 60hz may be slow, but most of the games I play are more single player cinematic games, so the OLED is better for that.
I was aiming to get a RTX 3060 laptop pat some point, but I could not pass on the price of this one, I am very glad I picked it up.
If there is one thing I would like razer to do about this laptop is the battery size; with this model now using 2 M.2 slots, there is room to be able to extend the battery a bit more, with that making it the best option for people that want the budget option.Feb 11, 2021 19:32
I love the oled display and I would recommend it to gamers / movie watchers but to people needed for work I wouldn’t recommend the battery on this laptop sucks for a laptop, the battery is small it doesn’t even extend all the way so there’s an empty space, note that it gets really hot so I upgraded the ram the thermal pads to Fuji poly extreme and added liquid metal on both the GPU and CPU and it runs way cooler, I bought this refurbished on Best Buy for 1400 something, I got this because the gpu shortage and it made no sense to upgrade my pc when DDR5, AM5 are coming this year instead I ended up selling all components except some, I mostly work from home as a webdev and graphic designer and I have external display optimized for CMYKMay 01, 2021 00:19
Great computer. Just easily runs hot. I had to buy a fan just to use it for a long amount of time. Battery dies extremely fast! You literally have to keep it plugged in the whole time or it will die within 30 mins of a full battery!Jul 31, 2021 16:26
This laptop is very nice, runs cool, the oled 4k screen is the nicest screen i have ever seen. even in 4k, tripple a games are still very playable. got this laptop open box, got a great deal.Apr 21, 2021 20:57
I was very excited to get the laptop, although once the laptop was tested for performance it wasn’t quite what I made it out to be, or the specs. All software was updated prior to use, and granted I did use it with no cooling pad, but the laptop was as hot as a pan.
(Which I now realize you always should use a cooling pad for gaming laptops).
Anyways, because of the premium aluminum construction, which is not a bad thing at all, the heat transfers on to your hand, therefore making for a pretty uncomfortable typing experience, or gaming. It’s hot to the touch and it burns if you use it for long enough.
As far as the 4K qualities go, they’re great but I found myself using it very rarely for the little amount of time I had it for. I Watched movies and played like 2 games on it, one of them being WarZone. The gaming part is when this laptop just doesn’t do it for me. As previously mentioned it gets hot, and the rendering, as well as refresh rate is poor. Shortly after I bought another laptop from MSI, which runs everything buttery smooth. Although it is warm, it is nothing compared to the heat the Razer gives out.
Plus, for the same price, I got a proper 2070 SUPER.
Which the sales person emphasized the Razer blade has, and it obviously doesn’t. But whatever.
Anyways, I also did some research and found that in the long term, 4K can be detrimental to the laptops life-span and display.
This is a PC for moderate users, movie watchers, and perhaps, content creators or college students, but take very good care of it.Jul 31, 2020 12:59
Razer Blade Laptop: Trounce the opposition with this Razer Blade Pro 17 gaming laptop. The Intel Core i7 processor and 16GB of RAM handle modern titles and everyday multitasking effortlessly, while the 512GB SSD offers ample media storage space and swift boots. This Razer Blade Pro 17 gaming laptop features an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 graphics card, which renders ultra-realistic visuals on the 17.3-inch Full HD 300hz display for smooth high-resolution gaming.
Great product. High end unit. Must buy. Best buy. AmazingNov 18, 2021 07:55
I guess it's a nice laptop on paper. It required a great deal of updates to software and drivers, so lots of time loading things. Razer notes that updates are delivered via Windows update, which is not true, especially for the Intel and Nvidia drivers.
Screen flickers when on battery. No solutions on the web that work. NO support from Razer.
Keyboard is not precise. You have to hit the key directly and firmly or it fails.
No excuse for this in a "highly rated" and expensive notebook.
VERY disappointed. Probably will return.Feb 15, 2021 12:17
Absolutely worth the money! The build quality is superb. They really put thought into this thing. The aluminium unibody is rigid and smooth. The Keyboard and trackpad are very responsive and nice to use. Even the power adapter is branded, custom, and slim! I'ts an absolute beast in gaming + productivity work. Screen is super bright and crisp. I'm coming from a Mac, and didn't think a PC could be this refined, but they did it. Absolutely would buy this laptop again.Jun 04, 2020 22:34
