70% Razer Blade 17 (2021) review
Source: Tom's Guide English
The Razer Blade 17 provides excellent performance and gorgeous visuals, albeit for a lot of money. In terms of performance, it's similar to its close competitors — although said competitors don't offer full 4K screens, so you'll have to take that into account. If you're in the market for a powerful 17-inch gaming laptop, the Alienware m17 R4 is also worth considering, as is the Maingear Vector Pro. But there's something undeniably stylish about the Razer Blade 17's design, and you'll get good performance for both work and play.

100% Razer Blade 17 (2022) review: ultra performance that comes with a price
Source: T3 English
So why wouldn't you opt for this for your next laptop upgrade? Well, the price is clearly too much for a lot of people – the best components cost the most money, and the amount of power that's available here is way more than you'll need if you're simply writing out essays and reports, doing some light emailing, watching movies and so on. This is strictly for serious gamers and video editors with a healthy bank balance. Check the widgets embedded on this page for the latest pricing on the Razer Blade 17, but at the time of writing you can pick up this impressive laptop in the configuration that we reviewed for around £4,300 or $4,000. Now, you can get a pretty decent car for that price, so it's a question of just how much you're willing to spend to get the best performance you can currently squeeze into a laptop chassis. Every laptop is a compromise between performance, size, battery life, price and various other considerations, and it's clear where Razer has and hasn't compromised here.

The Razer Blade 17 has a few small disappointments regarding battery life, but it more than makes up for it by being an absolute powerhouse for PC gamers and creatives alike. Whether you're going to be playing games or making them, this is a machine that can handle anything you throw at it, all while keeping its cool and fan noise at a minimum.

85% Razer Blade 17 (2022) Review: Faster And Cooler Than Ever
Source: The Verge English
Touching on the last year-to-year change that you might frequently use, Razer’s 1080p Windows Hello webcam has received some noticeable improvements. While it still produces a grainy image that struggles with exposure, the color accuracy, white balance, and detail are good enough to rely on in a pinch. It’s a noticeable improvement over the 720p cameras that Razer previously used, but it’s relative. Most laptop webcams are still bad, but this one’s much less bad than before. Still, you may just want to get a better webcam if you live in Zoom during the workday. A buying decision for a big, expensive gaming laptop usually weighs heavily on how powerful it is and how much it costs. But if your list of criteria also includes a laptop with an appealing and thin design, a stellar keyboard and trackpad, alongside a bunch of power, the Blade 17 is one of a few options out there at all to meet your needs. And thankfully, this year’s model is a particularly good, if still quite expensive, one.

91.2% Razer Blade 17 2022 Core i7 RTX 3080 Ti laptop review: Supercharged performance | Notebookcheck
The original Blade 17 design launched in 2019 with a target TGP of only 100 W. Fast-forward to 2022 and Razer has significantly upped the target to 165 W without any major changes to the chassis. Are there any repercussions users can expect from the more power-hungry internals?
70% Razer Blade 17 (Early 2022) review
Source: Laptop Mag English
The Razer Blade 17 is a solid gaming laptop that I’d expect to find in the mid-$2,000 range. You might be thinking that price is a bit too low for a laptop that’s as powerful as the Razer Blade 17. Well, power only goes so far. People need to see what they paid for, and if all they’re seeing is a far too dim display that belongs on a Chromebook, they’re not getting what they paid for. If you have money to blow, consider the Alienware x17 R2 ($4,800). It’s also stupid expensive, but at least you get a pleasantly bright display. Overall, the Razer Blade 17 is a solid gaming laptop for those that can find it at a discount and are willing to look at a different panel configuration.

The Razer Blade 17 with the RTX 3070 Ti is a full 800 Euros (~$842) cheaper than with the RTX 3080 Ti. With the thin case of the Blade, can you really notice a performance difference in favor of the more expensive GPU? We'll get to the bottom of this in our review.
