Hp Omen 15 Ryzen 7 5800h Rtx 3060 & Rtx 3070 Review in 2022

Hp Omen 15 Ryzen 7 5800h Rtx 3060 Review

The OMEN 15 2020 was one of the best gaming notebooks of the past year. In 2021, HP will donate not only more powerful AMD Ryzen ™ mobile processors to the OMEN 15, but also the new RTX-3000 graphics cards. The test of the OMEN 15 2021 with AMD Ryzen ™ 7 5800H and GeForce RTX 3060 will show whether my conclusion is valid this year as well.

OMEN 15 with AMD Ryzen ™ mobile processors

The OMEN 15 was offered in 2020 ( test ) with both AMD Ryzen and Intel Core processors. There were not only differences in performance, but also the connections and the WiFi standard. The OMEN 15 2021 with AMD processors still has to do without a Thunderbolt connection and uses the USB-C 3.2 Gen1 port with integrated DisplayPort 1.4, but it now also comes with WiFi 6.

You can currently get the OMEN 15 2021 in two versions in our shop. Our test device uses a 15.6 ″ display with 144 Hz and FHD resolution as well as an RTX 3060 and is currently available for 1499 euros *. But it is also available with a WQHD display with 165 Hz and higher color space coverage (100% DCI-P3) as well as a GeForce RTX 3070. All other features are identical.

As always, there isn’t much to say about the scope of delivery. In addition to the device itself, the white packaging also contains a 200-watt power supply unit and a three-pole power cable. In addition, HP includes a quick reference guide that explains everything and pictures. Unfortunately, the individual parts and the warranty slip are still wrapped in plastic film, as was the case with the previous year’s model. This can be done better.

Gaming meets understatement

HP has kept the chic and comparatively restrained design of its predecessor. This means that the OMEN 15 can be used universally, as it does not have excessive beads or edges or noticeable RGB lighting. Apart from a few inconspicuous logos and the hardware stickers, the OMEN 15 is kept in a simple dark gray.

Only the height of 2.29 compared to 2.25 cm is slightly thicker. The rest of the minimalism remains as well as the narrow display bezels. Overall, the OMEN 15 is a chic and, above all, everyday designed gaming notebook.

Clean workmanship and a relatively unsusceptible surface

There is no full aluminum body for 1,500 euros *, but the matt aluminum surface feels relatively high-quality and looks like it in combination with the dark gray. In addition, it feels like the surface is no longer as susceptible to fingerprints as it was last year.

In terms of processing, however, there are no differences. Everything is cleanly deburred and you won’t find any sharp edges on the OMEN 15. The gaps are also very even. There are no differences from the predecessor in terms of stability. The display can be bent easily with a little effort and you can also press the keyboard surface with force. Since you seldom act so powerfully on the notebook in everyday life, this is not a drawback.

You can still open the gaming notebook with one finger if you – like my colleague Sascha – value it. A shame: if you lift the notebook and knock on the underside, it still rattles a bit. This is a complaint at a high level, but it would have been gratifying if HP had taken care of the matter.

Good keyboard, large touchpad

The keyboard is pleasantly simple and convinces with a sensible typing experience. After a comparatively short period of familiarization, long texts can also be written without any problems. HP also foregoes unnecessary layout experiments with the OMEN 15, which unfortunately often happens with gaming notebooks. The keys have normal dimensions and apart from a few special keys all sit in the intended position, only the space bar is slightly larger than normal.

Good keyboard, large touchpad

The power button is still hidden next to “Remove”, and there is also a dedicated button for the calculator app and the OMEN software. The white keyboard illumination can be switched on and off with the F4 key. However, there are just as few different luminosities as RGB lighting. But it wouldn’t match the simple appearance of the OMEN 15 2021 either.

As in the 2020 model year, the touchpad does not have haptic buttons or a chrome frame. At 11.5 x 7.5 cm, it is big enough to get from one edge of the screen to the other with one swipe.

Many and varied connections including WiFi 6

The OMEN 15 offers you a multitude of diverse connections that can be summarized very easily: Everything is included except for Thunderbolt 4. On the right side are 2x USB Type-A 3.2 Gen1, Mini-DisplayPort, and USB-C including DisplayPort 1.4. On the opposite side, you will find the power, LAN, combination jack, HDMI, and another USB Type-A 3.2 Gen1 connection. In addition, there is the SD card reader at the very front left.

The OMEN 15 is also very well positioned when it comes to wireless connectivity. In addition to the WiFi 6, Bluetooth 5.0 is also on board.

Thanks to the 3x USB-A, Type-C, SD card reader, and RJ45 connection, the OMEN 15 is also armed for all situations in 2021. HP has also distributed the ports sensibly on both sides.

Fast IPS displays are not convincing everywhere

The test device has a matte 15.6 “display with FHD resolution (1920×1080 pixels). The point density is 141 PPI and content is accordingly displayed with good sharpness. The IPS panel in 16: 9 format has a refresh rate of 144 Hz Perfectly suitable for gaming, as games are displayed smoothly without tearing and ghosting. Of course, the requirement is that the frame rate is sufficiently high, as adaptive synchronization such as G-Sync or FreeSync is not supported.

The strengths of the display lie – before the calibration with our SpyderX – above all with a decent color space coverage of 73% AdobeRGB and 74% DCI-P3. The color fidelity is also good for a gaming display with a Delta E 1.38 of. In addition, the maximum brightness of the display is convincing with approx. 350 nits in the middle, just like its predecessor. The gamma of 2.1 is still acceptable, but light gray tones, in particular, are not displayed as accurately.

There are weaknesses, among other things, in the low contrast of 540: 1 at maximum brightness. In addition, the illumination is not very even, so the display in the top left drops by 14% to 296 nits. The display is also set significantly too cold at the factory because the white point is 7300K (50% brightness).

Above all, the calibration improves the white point, which is lowered to 7100K. However, this is still well above the targeted 6500K. In addition, the color fidelity drops to a better Delta E of 1.01. The contrast even increases to 680: 1 at maximum luminance. The calibration, however, does not influence the gamma or color coverage.

This means that the display is by and large good and suitable for the occasional image and video editing. However, if you want to use the OMEN 15 more often for work, you should use the version with a WQHD display and higher color coverage (according to HP 100% DCI-P3). By the way, you can download the calibrated profile here.

Windows 11 including scare and lots of bloatware

Windows 11 is preinstalled on the OMEN 15 2021. About 895 GB of the SSD with 1 TB storage is still free. There is more free memory if you dispose of the unnecessary programs that are installed at the factory. Included are Disney +, Dropbox, ExpressVPN, MS Teams, Minecraft, Spotify, and Xing, among others. In addition, HP spoils you with a pre-installed McAfee version that runs solid 15 processes in the background. One of them is responsible for those annoying ad pop-ups, so choose wisely. Recommended alternative: Uninstall everything, which should even bring better performance.

HP has also added eleven in-house programs to the OMEN 15, including HP Audio Switch, HP Connection Optimizer, HP Documentation, HP QuickDrop, HP Smart, OMEN Gaming Hub, etc. All of these can be uninstalled if you have them you don’t need.

The OMEN Gaming Hub might even be useful for some users, as it combines some useful functions and information. You can, for example, select wallpaper, create an account, create profiles, stream games from an OMEN host PC to a remote client, adjust the lighting, activate various performance modes, read out the temperatures and workloads of the hardware or start your installed games. You can start it with the dedicated button.

Powerful with AMD Ryzen ™ 7 5800H and RTX 3060

The OMEN 15 2021, as a variant with an AMD Ryzen ™ 7 5800H mobile processor and GeForce RTX 3060, should offer the best price-performance ratio for many gamers. The RTX 3060 is specified with a TGP of 100W. The processor relies on eight cores, which not only bring superior gaming performance to the road but are also worthwhile in applications.

The good news: You will get almost no problems with the internal FHD display if you don’t want to be in the latest titles with maximum details or ray tracing on Ultra. Why do I know? Because we run our gaming benchmarks with the maximum level of detail as standard. But even then, the OMEN 15 2021 still achieves respectable frame rates in the more ear-friendly “Balanced” mode. Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, for example, runs with an average of 48 FPS, in Shadow of the Tomb Raider with ray tracing shadows and without DLSS it is even 62 frames per second on average. As always, you can find all results in the diagrams.

Powerful with AMD Ryzen ™ 7 5800H and RTX 3060

Using Division 2, I also looked at how the OMEN 15 fares compared to its predecessor with an AMD Ryzen ™ 7 4800H mobile processor and GeForce GTX 1660 Ti. If the predecessor reached an average of 55 FPS, the 2021 model achieved 68 FPS. After all, an increase of 23.6%. However, not every title scales that well. In Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, for example, the OMEN 15 2020 averaged 46 FPS, a marginal difference compared to the 48 FPS of the current model.

I, therefore, recommend leaving it at high details in current AAA titles so that you can also benefit from the 144 Hz display. In the OMEN Gaming Hub, you can also activate the “Performance” mode, but the OMEN 15 will then be very loud as the components are more heavily loaded.

The more every day, but also more cost-intensive option to achieve more FPS: The OMEN 15 with RTX 3070 and WQHD display. The next better graphics card should achieve around 15-20% more FPS than the RTX 3060, depending on the game, but it will also be louder and warmer.

Strong application performance with 8 cores

Although the AMD Ryzen ™ 7 5800H performs well in games, it shows its true strength in applications. They benefit from the high multi-core performance. This includes, for example, the Cinebench R20, in which the mobile processor with almost 4,500 points is almost on par with the Intel Core i9-9900K from the MSI GT76 Titan ( test ) with 4,633 points – three years old, but the fastest desktop at the time -CPU. The Intel Core i9-11980HK from the MSI GE76 Raider 2021 also got around 4070 points.

In the CineBench R23 and the Resolve benchmark, the OMEN 15 2021 is roughly on par with the Schenker XMG Core 15 ( test ) with Intel Core i7-11800H and RTX 3060, but the graphics card is specified with 130 watts. In our Blender benchmark, the OMEN 15 2021 also draws a level when it comes to CPU performance.

In our Photoshop benchmark, the OMEN 15 2021 also lands in the upper range of our database with a total score of almost 815 points. It can position itself in front of the Acer Nitro 5 ( test ) and the Razer Blade 14 ( test ).

Fast-paced M.2 NVMe SSD from Samsung

I am pleased that HP has not made the red pencil with the SSD. A Samsung MZVLB1T0HBLR-000H1 NVMe SSD with 1 TB of storage is installed in the test sample, which is one of the fastest SSDs in our database with reading and write rates of just under 3.5 and 3.0 GB / s. The AS SSD benchmark also confirmed the run with a very good read and write values.

Acceptable temperatures when gaming

The OMEN 15 2021 with Ryzen ™ 7 5800H and RTX 3060 is a pleasantly quiet companion in everyday life in the “Standard” performance mode. Most of the time, the two fans even turn off completely during undemanding tasks. If they start up in-office use, only a restrained noise can be heard. The temperatures of the CPU and GPU are moderate at 44 and 40 ° C in idle.

But what about the stress test? Then, in addition to the high performance, there is an additional advantage of the modern manufacturing process of the AMD Ryzen ™ 7 5800H mobile processor. In the stress test, the temperatures remained in an acceptable range with an average of 91 ° C (CPU – Tide) and 78 ° C (GPU). Throttling does not occur even under permanent load. The gaming notebook is audible, but the monotonous, rustling background noise is positive. Unfortunately, the 2021 version also has a minimal whistling sound that can be heard in the background.

When gaming, the fans behave similarly to the stress test. A closed gaming headset is recommended to keep the noise at bay. The temperatures are similar to the stress test. In Assassin’s Creed Valhalla I measured 90 ° C on the AMD Ryzen ™ 7 5800H and 80 ° C on the GeForce RTX 3060. The values ​​are also good, especially since Assassin’s Creed Valhalla places very high demands on the hardware and the cooling system. There is no throttling here either.

Bang & Olufsen stereo speakers

The OMEN 15 relies on stereo speakers from Bang & Olufsen. Overall, the sound is good for a notebook and the combination of highs, mids and lows fits. As with every notebook, however, the depths are not particularly pronounced because there is a lack of volume due to the design.

You can easily watch podcasts, YouTube videos, and even one or two films on OMEN 15 2021. Even with music, you can turn the level up to 80% without being plagued by high-pitched heights with earaches. However, S-sounds tend to hiss. Depending on the genre, the most balanced sound is more likely at 60-70% volume. That is completely sufficient for operation in medium-sized rooms.

Bang & Olufsen stereo speakers

If you like, you can use the internal speakers for gaming. The sound is sufficient for this, but the sound mixes with the noise of the fan. I, therefore, recommend a suitable gaming headset.

Open, upgrade, wait – everything is possible

The OMEN 15 2021 is almost identical to its predecessor, so this time there are only eight Phillips screws that can be loosened quickly and easily with a small screwdriver. Then you just have to hang your fingernail on the back between the gaps and pry open the bottom. This is quick and can be done without tools.

Open, upgrade, wait - everything is possible
Open, upgrade, wait - everything is possible

Once inside, the components are neatly sorted and easily accessible. These include the two RAM modules, which you can exchange for 2x 16 GB if necessary. The two M.2 ports for the NVMe SSDs are located to the right and left of the battery under copper heat sinks. Since only the left slot is occupied, you can retrofit another NVMe SSD on the right. The battery itself is also only screwed and can therefore be easily exchanged if it should ever be necessary.

Overall, the OMEN 15 is also very easy to maintain and upgrade in this model year. Even laypeople should be able to install an additional SSD or a RAM upgrade without any problems. In case you are not sure: We have created an upgraded video for the almost identical OMEN 15 2020 in which we show and explain the individual steps in detail.

Conclusion: Hp Omen 15 Ryzen 7 5800h Rtx 3060 Review

The OMEN 15 remains a very strong and recommendable notebook for the majority of gamers in the 2021 model year. Appealing design, flawless workmanship, many and above all diverse connections, fast 144Hz display: This means that the OMEN 15 2021 can positively stand out from many gaming notebooks. In addition, there is the combination of AMD Ryzen ™ 7 5800H, 16 GB RAM, and GeForce RTX 3060, which enables both high-performance FHD gaming and working in demanding applications as well as occasional image editing to run smoothly.

The matte FHD display can score with an acceptable color coverage (73% AdobeRGB), a high maximum brightness (348 nits), and a good color fidelity (Delta E 1.38) ex-works. The weaknesses, on the other hand, are the mediocre contrast, the uneven illumination, and the white point that is set too cold. Some of the weaknesses can at least be improved with a calibration. If you want to work with the gaming notebook frequently or are looking for an even better color display with a higher resolution, you should use the model with a WQHD display, 165 Hz, and RTX 3070 ( shop ).

Hp Omen 15 Ryzen 7 5800h Rtx 3060 Review

The built-in stereo speakers are adequately matched and are completely sufficient for most everyday tasks. The SSD convinces in everyday life with very high read and writes speeds, you can also easily install another NVMe SSD, upgrade the RAM to 32 GB or replace the battery. The OMEN 15 2021 is audible under load, but on the whole, a closed headset is enough to block out the background noise. The hardware, which is stronger in comparison, also warms up a little more than in the previous year but remains in the uncritical area.

It’s a shame: HP will continue to garbage the OMEN 15 in 2021 with heaps of preinstalled programs that not only steal storage space but also run so many processes in the background that it should also affect performance. There is not much more to complain about with the gaming notebook.

This means that the OMEN 15 remains a clear recommendation in the 2021 model year, but the plus in performance compared to the previous year is also noticeably reflected in the price given the current 1499 euros *.

Razer blade 14 Gaming Laptop Review

With the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 and AMD Ryzen 5900HX, the Razer Blade 14 is a gaming notebook beast that is not much larger than an A4 sheet of paper.

AMD CPUs have been very popular among enthusiasts for years. More cores also mean more work being done at the same time. Intel still holds the monopoly on notebook CPUs, but things are slowly changing. The Razer Blade 14 is one of the first notebooks to make this change and is right on point. Thanks to an Nvidia RTX 3080, Razer Blade 14 has a real beast on offer, but one that is kept on a chain.

Design & workmanship – discreet gamer

Like all devices in the “Blade” series, the Razer Blade 14 uses clear lines and few frills. Apart from the (illuminated) logo on the display lid, it is hardly possible to tell who the notebook is from – that’s a big compliment. The first time you lift it, you notice that the Razer Blade 14 feels heavy. At just under 1.8 kg, it is no heavier than other gaming notebooks. But because of the small form factor, it feels “denser”.

Razer blade 14 Gaming Laptop Review 2021

The torsion-resistant aluminum housing feels very good and is on par with a Surface Laptop 4, DELL XPS 13, or MacBook Pro. The case, however, has a minimal tendency to collect fingerprints.

Keyboard, trackpad & webcam – crisp, glass & well

A quick note on our test unit: We received the version with the American keyboard layout for the test. If you buy the Razer Blade 14 in our shop, you will of course get the Same.

Razer blade 14 Gaming Laptop Review

I had to get used to the keyboard of the Razer Blade 14. I’m a big fan of short key travel and that’s exactly what it delivers, but it lacks a precise pressure point. After two days, however, the writing went as far as possible without any problems.

The Razer Blade 14‘s trackpad, on the other hand, is a dream from the first second. Glass surface, Microsoft Precision drivers, and good size make it a good mouse replacement for the on-the-go – not for gaming, of course, but for everything else.

The webcam delivers the typical quality: a bit fuzzy, a bit grainy, but at least with accurate colors. There are pluses for the infrared sensor next to the webcam, as it enables Windows Hello on the Razer Blade 14. This is always welcome, as it replaces the constant entering of a password.

Connections – Type-A & Type-C

Both the right and left sides of the Razer Blade 14 have a USB 3.2 Gen2 Type A and Type C port. Both ensure fast data transfer and the notebook can also be charged via both Type-C ports.

USB-C cannot deliver the full voltage of the power supply, but it is perfect for getting through the day and charging. Most gaming laptops do not use Type-C power delivery

Razer blade 14 keypad

Beyond that, there is a device for a Kensington lock and the HDMI 2.1 output on the right side of the Razer Blade 14 , while the actual charging port and a 3.5 mm jack connector are built-in on the right side.

Apart from a network connection and possibly an SD card reader, nothing is missing on the Razer Blade 14. All built-in ports shine with high transfer rates. USB4 would have been nice, but so far it has hardly added any added value in gaming.

Display – fast and accurate in color

The Razer Blade 14 is also not stingy when it comes to the display. Not only are the colors of the extended color spaces displayed precisely, but the illumination is also uniform with a deviation of just 10 percent across the entire panel. These values ​​are usually significantly worse, especially with fast displays.

With just over 350 nits of maximum brightness, it is not enough for use in blazing sunshine, but the Razer Blade 14 display is definitely bright enough for a relaxed lap in the shade. Gamma (2.2) and Delta E (1.38) ex-works are also very good. This makes the Razer Blade 14 suitable for color-critical work.

Together with the fast 165Hz, the display of the Razer Blade 14 leaves nothing to be desired. It doesn’t matter if you’re editing a fast shooter or a high-resolution photo with it – the display does its job and does it very well.

Performance – RTX 3080 (Razer blade 14 Gaming Laptop Review)

With 8 cores and 16 threads, the AMD Ryzen 5900HX is a real monster in the Razer Blade 14. The CPU draws circles around its Intel counterparts – at least in applications that benefit from many cores. The Ryzen 9 is also ahead in terms of single-core performance, but the gap is to Intel’s 10th or 11th gen. Is no longer that great.

Performance - RTX 3080

The Razer Blade 14 is accordingly well suited for creative applications. At a certain point, however, the built-in 16GB RAM becomes a bottleneck. Unfortunately, the RAM is firmly soldered and so you have no chance to tickle out a little more power afterward. This is not a limitation when gaming, but when editing large video files, for example.

battery life

When it comes to gaming, the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 can shine. The graphics performance also fires the native 1440p display without any problems. Especially in graphically demanding games, the details can be turned to the maximum, and still, an average of almost 60 FPS can be achieved.

Performance - RTX 3080
Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080
Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080

However, this shows one of the problems with modern gaming notebooks. The terms “RTX 3060”, “3070” and “3080” are only of limited significance. The GeForce RTX 3080 in the Razer Blade 14 is fired with 100 watts. In larger gaming notebooks that have more space for more cooling, and RTX 3070, for example, also draws more watts. Accordingly, the Razer Blade 14 delivers a lot of performance, but less FPS than, for example, the 17 ″ MSI GP 76 Leopard with a 3070 (test).

Battery life – better than most gaming notebooks

There was a dark time when gaming notebooks barely lasted four hours without a power supply. Fortunately, that time is largely over. Even a powerful device like the Razer Blade 14 can last around six to seven hours of normal office work. As already mentioned, the USB-C port can also be used for intermediate charging.

However, it becomes clear that the CPU throttles its performance without a socket. Thanks to the fast SSD and the sheer strength of the other components, this is fortunately hardly of any consequence in everyday use. When the almost 62 Wh battery is empty, the Razer Blade 14 can be charged quickly with the 230V power supply provided.

Temperatures and fans – cool, but definitely audible

With the high-performance components installed, I expected the Razer Blade 14 to struggle with cooling. In fact, the fans do a good job: both the CPU and GPU are kept in a good range. Thermal throttling does not occur. That’s impressive for the little space the Razer Blade 14 has.

Razer Blade 14 display

Even the fan noises are kept within limits and are no louder than other gaming notebooks. However, our test unit produced a slight beep under load. So you can’t avoid the obligatory headset when gaming. This is a shame since the speakers of the Razer Blade 14 are very good – minimally muffled, but with enough space for mids, light bass, and a decent volume.

Upgrading – minimally feasible

Ten Torx screws stand between you and the inner workings of the Razer Blade 14, but it is only partially worth it to loosen the clicked base plate. So you can change a maximum of the built-in 1TB SSD and the WiFi module. Everything else is permanently installed or soldered.

Conclusion of the Razer blade 14 Gaming Laptop Review

The Razer Blade 14 is one of the best gaming laptops I’ve had on my desk to date. Thanks to the AMD Ryzen 9 5900HX, it offers a lot of performance in a handy form factor. Workmanship, connections, and display are in the first league – typical for the Razer Blade series.

The Razer Blade 14 also scores highly in terms of battery, keyboard, and gaming performance. As a gaming notebook in the form factor, there is hardly anything to complain about and there is very little competition at the moment.

Razer Blade 14 display

As a creative machine, however, I miss the option of being able to retrofit 32 or even 64 GB of RAM. Just to be able to lift the Razer Blade 14 from a gaming notebook into the league of mobile video editing machines. This would open up blade 14 to the second group of users. They might also twitch less if they were to spend around $2,199 on a gaming laptop. An SD card reader would still be desirable for graphic designers.

I really hope that Razer will pack everything from the Razer Blade 14 into a new Blade 15 – including the beastly AMD CPU and more powerful cooling so that the RTX 3080 can use more watts. The door to first-class AMD gaming laptops is more than open and I hope that many more manufacturers will bring such gaming laptops onto the market.

Design & processing

The design is simple and you won’t find excessive decorative stuff. There are two small Lenovo logos on the body and on the display lid. And there is also a chrome lettering on the display lid. The colored Chrome logo is the only color accent on this notebook. Lenovo uses matte plastic as the material. This gives the Chromebook S345 a solid robustness (it can only be bent with a lot of effort) and a high resistance to fingerprints. They can hardly be seen and if they do, they can be easily wiped off again.

 Lenovo Chromebook S345 Review

The workmanship is typical for Lenovo: flawless. All parts fit, nothing creaks or crunches or wobbles where it shouldn’t wobble. The few gaps are pleasantly even. There is absolutely nothing to complain about.

The display bezels are wide for today’s standards, but that is not to be expected otherwise with a notebook in this price range. The webcam is housed in the upper frame. If you want to use them, you should pay attention to good lighting. Otherwise you will get pixel mud. You should avoid backlighting in any case.

 Lenovo Chromebook S345

The display hinges are pleasantly stiff. You can’t open the Chromebook S345 with one hand, but that’s a completely overrated feature in my opinion. It is important that the display does not wobble even if you use the one-finger search and hack system on the keyboard. To get the display to shake, you have to shake the table properly. Everything else doesn’t care.

 Lenovo Chromebook

The keyboard sits in a small recess. The keys have a very short travel and are too spongy for my personal taste. You have to get used to them. Not only because the keyboard offers a soft typing experience, but also because keys such as CTRL are sometimes larger, because the Windows key, for example, is missing. The same applies to the assignment of the function keys. It is different from a Windows computer. After a few texts for rehearsal, longer texts are no problem either. Unfortunately, there is no keyboard backlight.

 Lenovo Chromebook keypad

The trackpad sits in the middle in front of the keyboard and is sufficient for occasional use. It responds usefully and has no dead corners. So you can use the entire width for gestures. But I still connected a Bluetooth mouse very quickly. Navigation simply ran faster and more precisely. The input devices fully correspond to what can be expected in this price range.

Many and versatile connections

There are plenty of connections on the Chromebook S345. A total of four USB ports are available, all with the 3.2 Gen 1 standard and thus 5 Gbps maximum transfer rate.

 Lenovo Chromebook S345 ports

On the left side you will find a USB-C port, a USB-A port, a 3.5mm combo connector and a microSD card reader. The latter is not the fastest under the sun, but is completely sufficient in everyday life. Since the internal memory of 64 GB is tight, you should consider using the microSD card reader for permanent memory expansion. If you prefer to use the cloud to save your data, you have 15 GB of free storage space in your Google account. You can purchase additional storage space via Google One.

 Chromebook S345 Review

On the right side there is the socket for the Kensington lock, another USB-C port and the second USB-A port.

The Chromebook S345 is charged with USB-C. It doesn’t matter which of the two ports you connect the 45 watt charger to. I think one thing is really good: Both USB-C ports support DisplayPort. This gives you free choice when it comes to setting up your monitor on your desk. You can connect it on either side. This flexibility does not exist everywhere.

usb ports

Display

Lenovo specifies a maximum brightness of 220 nits. Unfortunately, I didn’t have a Spyder on hand during the test period to measure it. But the information should be more or less correct. The brightness is sufficient for working indoors. Occasional trips outside are also possible. In this case, however, you should make sure that you rest in a shady area if possible. Then you can still recognize screen contents usefully. However, you should completely avoid direct sunlight. The display cannot outshine that.

inexpensive laptops

The display is also not suitable for color-critical work. The coverage of the sRGB color space should be around 50%, that of the more extensive AdobeRGB color space 40-45%. Easily optimizing photos for social media is no problem. If you need exact colors, the display is not suitable.

The 14 “display has a full HD resolution and that means that your content is displayed nicely and sharply. It is a TN panel, so you have to expect color shifts here if you look at it from the side. In everyday office life, however, this is no longer tragic.

performance

Chromebooks have long been said to be weak boxes. And rightly so. You don’t get strong hardware with the S345 either. But it is completely sufficient for the intended purposes. Basically, Chrome OS is an operating system that does a lot out of weak hardware.

 Lenovo Chromebook

The AMD A6-9220C processor was introduced in 2019 and is clearly not one of the most powerful CPUs from AMD. Its performance is slightly higher than that of an Intel Pentium N4200. It is supported by 4 GB of RAM. And what does that mean in understandable German?

The performance is sufficient for all office tasks. Google Docs runs smoothly, as does Google Sheets. However, you should avoid extremely extensive tables. The system also runs smoothly in other respects. Different apps start smoothly and even image processing, for example with Snapseed, runs smoothly. Photoshop Express, on the other hand, ticks off every now and then. Surfing with Chrome was not a problem at all and opening tabs excessively did not slow down performance either.

lenovo display

I would have loved to try video editing, but I couldn’t find any app that supports the Chromebook S345.

So far so good. Now let’s get to the downside of performance. Gambling is canceled because “is not”. You can get tarmac to run, but it’s so jerky that it’s not fun. Put in a round of PUBG? I tried. I never got into a fight though. Whenever the Chromebook finished loading, the battle was over for me.

office laptop

The AMD A6 has a power consumption of 6 watts. That’s not a lot, and that’s positive in this context. Because the low power consumption allows fanless operation thanks to passive cooling. So you won’t hear the Chromebook when it’s in use. This is definitely an advantage in environments such as a university library.

 Lenovo Chromebook S345 Review

According to Lenovo, the battery should last up to ten hours. That works out pretty well too. I lost about 10% of the charge per hour when the display brightness was fully turned up. So it is easily possible to spend a working day without a power socket.

The operating system is Chrome OS. This is very similar to Android. So if you have/had an Android smartphone, you will find your way around immediately. The Google Play Store is available for apps. However, not all apps support Chrome OS, so you may have to look around for alternatives to your smartphone apps. We have written an overview of the first steps in Chrome OS for you. Read it through if you have no experience with it. Basically, Chrome OS is simple and you will find your way around quickly.

The core of Chrome OS is that the data is stored online. So you can work anywhere you have WiFi. Since there is unfortunately still not nationwide WLAN everywhere in Germany, e.g. on regional trains, the offline mode is a useful extension of Chrome OS. With it you can save your music on the Chromebook or play it offline. Mails and other office tasks also go offline, of course.

sound

You shouldn’t make any great demands on the sound. The speakers sit on the bottom and produce a thin sound.

Even at half volume, they sound tinny and high-pitched. Depths can only be recognized in rudiments. If you turn up the volume, then of course it does not improve. The heights are then partly clinking.

 Lenovo Chromebook sound

However, the quality is sufficient for the ubiquitous zoom or team calls. Speech is output properly.

Basically, you should either connect proper speakers or headphones for a good sound. That works without any problems via Bluetooth or jack.

Upgrade: easy to open, little to do

Upgrading is only possible to a limited extent. You can neither get to the RAM nor to the memory. When you have loosened the nine Phillips screws on the back, you can simply remove the base plate. You may need an old pick, a disused credit card, or something similar – I was able to pry out the record so easily.

If the battery gives up the ghost in the distant future, then you can swap it. It is only fixed with a couple of screws. The WiFi module can also be exchanged.

Conclusion Lenovo Chromebook S345 Review 2021: Inexpensive office laptop

Is it worth buying the Chromebook S345? The honest answer is: it depends. If you are looking for a laptop with which you can write texts and create tables and which can get through the day without a socket, then you can buy the Chromebook S345 with a clear conscience. The price of $349.00 is pretty much unbeatable at the moment.

Occasional image editing with Snapseed is also not a problem. The Chromebook from Lenovo is not suitable for further or even professional image processing. Both the hardware and the display set limits here.

The Chromebook S345 is an office notebook in the truest sense of the word. It is made for this purpose and it delivers here. It is not suitable for everyone who has more extensive use cases.

Razer blade pro 17 gaming laptop 2021 review

The Razer Blade Pro 17 masters performance, display, design and workmanship at the top level and only annoys with the usual weaknesses of a gaming notebook.

Pros
  • design
  • processing
  • power
  • connections
Cons
  • Fan volume
  • 512GB SSD

Intel i7 CPU, Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070, a QHD 165Hz display, and an adult design make the Razer Blade Pro 17 one of the best gaming laptops currently available on the market. With a price of € 2700, it may not be cheap, but it is worth every penny of it and is particularly interesting for gamers who want a powerful, yet very compact gaming notebook.

Scope of delivery and packaging – Razer cult

The scope of delivery is clear. In addition to the Razer Blade Pro 17, buyers will also find the compact 230W power brick in the packaging. Razer has to rely on a proprietary charging port, as Type-C / Thunderbolt 3 can transmit a maximum of 120 watts and that would not be enough to supply the Razer Blade Pro 17 with energy under full load.

Razer blade pro 17 gaming laptop 2021 review

Razer is otherwise cautious with the packaging of the Blade Pro 17 and relies on sustainable materials – very exemplary.

Design & processing – simple elegance

The Razer Blade Pro 17 is a real beauty with its black aluminum case. No frills, clear lines, neatly crafted corners and good material thickness, with which nothing is imprinted. When it comes to workmanship, I give the Razer Blade Pro 17 full marks – I really like to hold it in my hands.

Razer blade pro 17 gaming laptop

The very good workmanship of the Razer Blade Pro 17 also extends to the hinge, which holds the display precisely in position and still ensures that the display lid can be opened with just one hand. Both things I expect in the price range but other gaming laptops sometimes forget.

Razer also holds back elegantly with the logos. Apart from the three green snakes on the outside of the display lid, nothing reminds of the gamer roots of the Razer Blade Pro 17. Apart from that, the notebook is as subtle as it can be and I love it.

Razer blade pro

The disadvantage of the aluminum surface is that it is attractive for fingerprints. The darker areas are particularly noticeable on the black case. That should be the reason why the Razer Blade Pro 17 also comes with a microfiber cloth.

Input devices & webcam – good, good and okay

The Razer Blade Pro 17’s trackpad is probably one of the best out there. The glass surface and Microsoft Precision driver ensure that you can work quickly and well even without a mouse. I would still use the mouse when gaming.

Unfortunately, the Razer Blade Pro 17 also uses springboard technology for its trackpad, which means that clicks in the upper third are not recorded. Huawei has now successfully brought an all-clickable trackpad into its more expensive ultrabooks, and I’m sure that when the Razer engineers are done with the toaster, RGB mask, and straw, that will be at the top of their list.

Razer blade pro 17 gaming laptop 2021 review

For the keyboard, Razer decided against a number pad despite the 17 ″ display. The advantage of this is that the keyboard does not appear compressed. A full-fledged Enter key, a large right shift and a good distance between the keys allow a very good typing experience, which is increased again when the RGB lighting is set to a plain white.

I’ve never been a fan of number pads on notebooks and the keyboard layout on the Razer Blade Pro 17 is very convincing in everyday life. However, the minimal key drop ensures that the direct feedback is a bit short. Nonetheless, I enjoyed typing long texts on the Razer Blade Pro 17.

Razer blade pro 17 gaming laptop keyboard

The Razer Blade Pro 17’s webcam isn’t on the same level as the keyboard and trackpad. Depending on the lighting conditions, the picture looks washed out and lacks details, or a dark blue T-shirt mixes with a dark brown couch. In times of more and more Zoom meetings, I would have wished for a little more, but Razer also has external solutions in its range.

gaming laptop 2021 review

But there are pluses for Windows Hello. In conjunction with an infrared camera, this ensures that your laptop is unlocked immediately when you wake it up. Any solution that allows fewer passwords deserves praise. If you are outside and have a mask on, you can alternatively use Windows Hello via the fingerprint reader next to the keyboard.

Let’s start on the left. In addition to the connection for the power supply, a network connection, two fast USB-A ports, a fast Type-C socket and a 3.5mm headset-mic combo connection await you here. There are advantages especially for the network connection, because unfortunately it is no longer standard everywhere. Razer even goes one better and installs a 2.5Gbit port. So if you process and transfer a lot of and / or large data over the network, the connection benefits you twice.

Razer blade pro ports

An HDMI 2.1 port, a fast Type A and a Thunderbolt 3 port are waiting on the right. The latter in particular is the cherry on the cake, as it enables extremely fast data transfer or, alternatively, clears the way for a good docking station.

Razer blade pro ports

The SD card reader is more interesting for creative minds who, for example, want to copy their pictures or videos from a camera for further processing. As part of this group, I am actually perfectly happy with the connections on the Razer Blade Pro 17.

Display – 165Hz QHD display is the sweet spot

Most laptop manufacturers build in full HD displays or jump straight to 4K. The problem with this is that 4K does not offer much added value on a display diagonal of 14 to 17 inches. The pixel density at the average distance between the eye and the display is subjectively hardly higher at 4K than at 1440p. However, the 4K panel needs more power and is more difficult to bring to a high frame rate.

Razer blade pro display

Instead of Full HD with 240Hz or 4K with 60Hz, the 1440p-165Hz of the Razer Blade Pro 17 are the perfect affordable combination of frame rate and resolution for a laptop. If you want, you can get the Razer Blade Pro 17 with Full HD and 360Hz for 100 € more. With RTX 3080 and for 1000 € more, there is also a 4K touch option, which then reaches 120Hz – if you want a little more. For most of them, however, the QHD 165Hz version should meet all the important points.

Beyond the technical gaming values, Razer was not stingy with the display of the Blade Pro 17. With 100% coverage of the sRGB color space and 76% of the extended Adobe color space, it is not suitable for professional image editing, but it is accurate enough to fine-tune your holiday photos, for example.

It does not have any weaknesses in terms of white point, contrast and color homogeneity. In addition, there is only a 13% deviation in brightness on the entire panel, which ensures a subjectively even illumination.

Razer blade pro 17

Overall, I can hardly imagine a better display for private use. For professional use, however, I would use an external monitor. Thanks to the Thunderbolt 3 and the HDMI port on the Razer Blade Pro 17, that’s no problem.

Performance – Full HD & 1440p run very well

With an Intel i7 CPU and an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070, the Razer Blade Pro 17 provides plenty of performance for everyday use. Even in demanding AAA blockbusters, good 60-70fps are possible at any time in the native QHD resolution of the display and with maximum details. You can get even more out of this in games that support Nvidia DLSS.

Razer blade pro 17 gaming laptop 2021

But the Razer Blade Pro 17 is also convincing in a professional environment. For example, exporting a 30-second commercial in 4K resolution only takes one minute. The built-in SSD, on the other hand, is rather average in terms of pure write and read rates. It’s not slow and doesn’t interfere with games, but it’s not difficult to find faster NVMe SSDs on the market.

There are plus points for the cooling behavior of the Razer Blade Pro 17. Even under heavy load there was no thermal throttling of the CPU or GPU. Accordingly, the notebook’s full performance can be expected even under continuous load.

Battery – better than expected

Usually, gaming notebooks aren’t really gifted with long battery life. I was all the more surprised by the Razer Blade Pro 17 that it lasted a little over seven hours under a rather light load with office work and 220 nits of display brightness. The competitors are often more in the range of four to six hours.

gaming laptop

When the battery is empty, it can be charged quickly with the power adapter. If you want to commute a lot with the Razer Blade Pro 17 and are toying with a second power supply, you should know that it costs 170 € – ouch.

Temperatures and fans – under control

Here, too, I hardly have any criticism. After more than an hour in Remedy’s Meisterwerk Control (about 50fps, QHD, max. Details) I only found one really warm spot on the device – directly in the middle above the keyboard. Unsurprisingly, since two out of four fans are located underneath.

In terms of fans, the Razer Blade Pro 17 is not above its competition – unfortunately. Like practically all gaming laptops, this notebook also tends to make clearly audible fan noises under stress. So when gaming you need a headset. Which is a shame, since the built-in speakers are among the better on the market.

Synapse and software – less is more

The Razer Blade Pro 17 holds back when it comes to unnecessary software. Small additional programs like Xing and Spotify are preinstalled, but you won’t find any apps like Candy Crush. Otherwise, a clean Windows 10 Home is used.

The keyboard of the Razer Blade Pro 17 relies on RGB and so the in-house Synapse software can also be used to play something with the light effects and the key assignments.

In addition, adjustments to the fan control and the GPU mode can also be made here. Both very useful features when battery consumption is secondary.

Upgrade – exemplary

A total of twelve T5 screws connect the base plate to the rest of the case of the Razer Blade Pro 17. The whole plate can then be easily lifted off. Underneath, the upgrade-friendly interior of the notebook is revealed.

razor internal

The two RAM bars are immediately visible and can be exchanged just as quickly. There aren’t any free banks, but at least you won’t be punished for the rest of your life with the Razer Blade Pro 17’s 16GB.

The Razer Blade Pro 17 comes with a 512GB SSD ex works. This is sufficient for the beginning, but with modern AAA games just a few games are enough and the memory reaches its limits. So I am pleased that Razer has planned a slot for a second NVMe SSD with which you can expand your storage quickly and easily.

The battery is only held by eight Philips (+) screws. No glue is used, but two screws are hidden under small stickers. Nevertheless, in a few years, when the battery naturally starts to wear out, a replacement battery can simply be bought. Overall, Razer is very exemplary when it comes to upgrading.

Conclusion on Razer blade pro 17 gaming laptop 2021 review – adult gamer

The Razer Blade Pro 17 is a beautiful machine that I would be proud of if it were my daily companion. The design has grown up and the workmanship is at the highest level. Especially the large display with its 165Hz and 1440p resolution has proven to be ideal for laptop gaming for me.

Thanks to Intel Core i7, Nvidia RTX 3070 and 16GB RAM, QHD is no problem in current blockbuster games in all its glory and even 4K including ray tracing is feasible. Razer is a bit stingy to install only one 512GB SSD ex works, but at least a second NVMe SSD can be installed quickly and easily.

Razer blade

The biggest weakness of the Razer Blade Pro 17 shares it with other gaming notebooks – the fan noise. But I can forgive that, because the powerful hardware is very well cooled and the performance is always fully available.

For currently 2299$ might not be the cheapest gamer on the market, but it would be the one I would recommend any adult gamer to. If you want to go really high-end, you can also choose a version with RTX 3080, 32GB RAM, and a display with 4K and 120Hz for 1000$ more. In any case, I’m very reluctant to part with the Razer Blade Pro 17. But if the 17.3 inches are simply too big for you – the Blade Pro is also available as a 15-inch model.

Razer blade 15 base model review

Is the Razer Blade 15 worth it?

Razer blade 15 base model review Yes, the Razorblade is a gaming laptop. But razor goes through painstaking effort to make sure that its flagship laptop is not just another gaming laptop. Coming back to this design in 2020, it might not be as striking as it was when it launched a couple of years ago. But spending some time with it again, I was reminded of just how much this stands out from a lot of the competition in a lot of different ways.

Razer blade 15 base model review

Design

The design of the razor blade is more about what it avoids than what it does. And you’ll know what I mean if you set this thing next to a laptop from the predator line or the Alienware line. It’s really obvious right away this is a normal laptop for lack of a better term. And it totally knows it the focus here is all on straight lines and simple design language it’s more in line with a MacBook than a traditional gaming laptop. There are two exceptions to that rule of course and they both involve glowing lights. You’ve got the green snake logo on the lid which still glows in the dark.

The Keyboard (razer blade 15 base model review)

And of course the RGB backlighting on the keyboard with twelve levels of brightness control and endless customization options. Razor still does RGB backlighting better than anyone else and speaking of the keyboard. Razer has finally made a design change here that I have been bothered by for years and we’re talking about the keyboard layout. They’ve finally given in and gotten rid of those full-size arrow keys and instead used kind of the typical half-size up and down arrow keys. But the result is that the shift key

The questions mark is now next to each other like a normal keyboard layout. And now I don’t have to struggle with that every single time I sit down and type at this computer. And for me, I do that all day so this was a huge huge relief and Razer does intend you to use the blade for more than just gaming.

That’s clear it’s more than just the excellent keyboard and touchpad. That they use here it’s also in just the size of the Razer Blade it only weighs four and a half pounds. And you can set this thing next to a Dell XPS 15 or a 16 inch MacBook Pro. And it fits into that same size category it has all the bells and whistles of a premium laptop. – including the IR camera above which lets, you do Windows Hello facial recognition. Even the port selection here lends itself to somebody who wants to use this laptop for more than just gaming.

Port Selection

In addition to your normal mix of USB a USB C and HDMI you also get a Thunderbolt 3 port here. And a full-size SD card slot Razer knows its target audience and obviously, that includes people who will use those types of ports daily. When it comes to performance, what you get on a spec sheet can be misleading. There’s a lot more going on here than just listing off the process or the graphics card the RAM and that kind of thing. The way that a system actually integrates those components can produce wildly different performance results and the razorblade is kind of an interesting example of that well let’s get this out of the way first.

Gaming With A 300Hz Display

As a gaming laptop which that’s what this is, it’s fantastic to use the new NVIDIA r-tx 2080 Super Max Q graphics card. Which is the top of the line for these thin and light gaming laptops in 2020. The super in the name of the graphics card really only amounts to about 5% of an increase in performance over the previous models give or take. Depending on the game. but the gameplay experience that you get on the razorblade is as much about the screen. As it is about the graphics card this particular unit I have here came with a 300 Hertz refresh rate screen at 1080p resolution. And even though you might like the sound of a 4k OLED panel. which razor also offers if gaming is your main prerogative. This is the one you want 300 Hertz might sound like overkill.

But it ensures that your screen will never bottleneck your GPU. And all that extra Headroom means you won’t experience all that nasty screen tearing. That you get in some gaming laptops. It’s nice to know that even lighter games like CSGO or Rocket League which actually caps at 250 frames per second still won’t also come close to that upper limit. The Razer Blade kept up with B few laptops like the Acer predator Triton 500 in pretty much every game. I tested at max settings and keep in mind those are two laptops with pretty much identical components and for tonight. We’re talking about 110 frames per second. In Battlefield 598 and even 60 frames per second in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey. It still sorts of mind-boggling to me that a laptop this size can produce those types of frame rates.

Content Creation

So that’s gaming and the way the razor blade handles its power share between the GPU and the CPU is oriented. More towards that graphics card. It’s not to say that the razor blade isn’t a good laptop for content creation. But it does have some limitations. There this time around the razor blade gets upgraded to the 10th gen Intel Core processors. And this one, in particular, is the core 10 875 H. Which adds two extra cores and four new threads.

So now you’re up to eight cores and 16 threads ideally. That would give you some extra performance for things like video editing photography any kind of content creation. Applications that can use those extra cores and in case you’re curious games. Nowadays can’t really use those extra cores all that much.

However, we have some new consoles coming up. And that could actually end up changing the way games use extra cores in the processor. so one like this actually might be pretty dominant in the future. But right now you’re not gonna see much of a difference between this and the six-core processor from last year. But back to video editing, the razorblade is really not a bad little machine at that type of task. It’s just that there are some better options out there these days like the laptop.

I recently reviewed the Dell XPS 17. Even though it only has an RT X 2060, there’s more going on here than just from the spec sheet. Because that’s able to tap into that GPU a lot more in applications like Adobe Premiere. So just because you read r-tx 2080 supermax cube, that doesn’t necessarily mean that this is going to perform a lot better than something like a Dell XPS 15. The same goes for the display.

Honestly, I already talked about how great it is for gaming with that high refresh rate. But the fact that it’s matte 1080p like it’s not ideal for the type of content creation tasks. That you might want to do with it, the contrast is pretty good, and everything looks beautiful on it. But if you wish to that broader color gamut, you’re going to have to jump up to the 4k OLED version of the razor blade.

Airflow

Now that this particular design is beginning to show its age a little bit. I do have a lot of things I’d like to see improved in the future. The first has to do with airflow now razor works hard to make sure there’s some poke hold all over the chassis and put vents in every possible area. I get it. It’s not what this design is going for in terms of looks. Still, the result is that the razor blade is a little bit warmer than I’d like it to be I expect warmer surface temperatures.

when I’m doing something like gaming. But I found that even when I’m just kind of doing a lighter workload in Chrome. The surface temperatures and the polymerase and the keyboard are just kinds of uncomfortably warm. Especially if you use it for to eight hours at a time it’s a delicate balance between performance and surface temperatures. And fan noise and I still think there’s a little more work to be done here to make sure it’s balancing.

The Speakers

All those things correctly, and then there are the speakers there okay. They’re located right here on the keyboard. Deck pointed up like this should be but the quality is just not really there. The bass is missing, and you compare this to pretty much any MacBook. it’s just a world of difference.

Price

Lastly, it’s not cheap this unit here it costs 3000$. That’s three grand but of course, what you get is a full terabyte of SSD storage 16 gigabytes of RAM. And all those powerful other components. but you’re still gonna be at least three or four hundred dollars more than a lot of the competition.

That has those exact same components and results in a pretty similar performance. A good example is the predator Trident 500. That I mentioned earlier and that one even comes with double the RAM. Razor also offers a number of cheaper models. They call these the base Edition and this is a slightly thicker chassis but it only starts at $1,600. And then it does get you a 144 Hertz. Refresh rate no matter what model you get the competition at that price.

I’m really across the board is still really tight. However, honestly, the razorblade is still a trailblazing gaming laptop. I think it’s changed the way we perceive gaming gear or any technology. That is used correctly for PC gaming.

I don’t think I’m alone in that. I don’t want my laptop that I spend thousands of dollars. Not also to be able to function as just a standard laptop. And that’s a pretty huge thing to demand. Considering how much horsepower you need to power modern games at reasonable frame rates. The razorblade is still the laptop that does that best. Hopefully, you got an entire Razer blade 15 base model review.
