The non-US version does have the old keyboard lighting. Secondary functions aren't lit as advertised on the US keyboard. This could be a deal breaker for some, as for this was something I was looking forward to as well.

CPU Overheat (read update part)
Will update the list over time as I have it only for a couple days for now, but I am not regretting it yet.
Also, get the RTX 2070 version with 256GB SSD and buy a bigger NVMe SSD separately, you can end up actually saving money.
=== Update ===
My initial review hasn't changed about the laptop. I still think it has great build quality, has great performance and it is very satisfying to use it for work and gaming alike. And the overall positive experience outweighs the negatives in my case.
I did approach Razer support about the keyboard and the possibility of an update in the future, but sadly didn't got a satisfying answer back.
CPU Overheating issues. Yes there is an issue with the CPU hitting 100 degrees and throttling down because of that.
Is it a Razer only issue? NO, every slim gaming laptop is plagued by this as when you have a six core CPU running on 3.9Ghz, that thing will produce a massive amount of heat and the cooling system in slim laptops aren't good enough to mitigate this problem. If you don't like this, you have to buy a bigger laptop with bigger cooling.
For me, undervolting was a fine solution. Now it only creeps up to 80-85 degrees.
Of course if you're not going to do any CPU heavy tasks, or run games which use it extensively, then you're not going to experience this and you will be fine.
Apart from these, everything is still in working order. No issues with the battery, no manufacturing problems which could have popped up in a couple of weeks time.
I've been looking for a new gaming laptop for a while but with such an expensive item as this I tend to spend a lot of time reading many professional reviews to try and narrow down what I want before I buy. At this end of the market there aren't that many options with most manufacturers only offering 1 or 2 models with limited configurations. If you've looked into this yourself you will see that there are pros and cons to all of them which makes that decision even harder.
My previous laptop had an Intel i7 6700HQ and Nvidia Geforce 970m which, although fairly good at the time, I really wish I went for the 980m instead. I'm finding that laptop can no longer run games at high settings at 1080p (in fact Geforce experience recommends 720p for some games!). VR was borderline playable on an Oculus Rift CV1 which also rules out being able to use any new VR headsets with higher resolutions etc.
I decided that I wanted an Nvidia 2080 Max-Q and 9th Gen Intel i7 processor. I won't be using the laptop all the time for gaming so something that is also small and light(ish) with good battery life, for browsing the net etc. Good battery life and high end CPU and GPU generally don't go together so just those requirements alone narrowed it down to just a handful of laptops.
I eventually narrowed it down to the Gigabyte Aero 15x and Razer Blade 15 Advanced as both of these models appear to have the best battery life and also don't look like typical gaming laptops, other than their RGB back-lit keyboards.
Why did I choose the Razer Blade?
- The Razer Blade has slightly better performance in numerous benchmarks.
- The Razer Blade is quieter overall, especially when not gaming and just using the laptop in Windows (fans are very quiet or off altogether). It is also slightly quieter under load.
- The overall finish and build quality of the Razer seems better and looks very slick with it's milled alluminium body.
- Notoriously glitchy software on the Gigabyte Aero and underwhelming AI performance.
- Lots of reports of keys not registering properly or registering twice on the Gigabyte Aero.
Negative things about the Razer Blade I knew about prior to purchase:
- More expensive than equivalent specification from other manufacturers
- Not very upgradeable (only has 2 DIMM slots and 1 NVME slot which are all populated)
- Not available with NVME drive larger than 512GB
- Secondary function/symbol keys STILL not back lit
- 'Up' cursor arrow key located between Right Shift key and /
- No Ethernet port
Opening the box:
When the laptop turned up I was surprised how small the box was. I know the laptop is small anyway but they certainly aren't wasting any packaging with this laptop! There wasn't much in the box other than the laptop and the PSU (which is quite chunky!). There was also a small microfibre cloth for cleaning the screen and chassis. Unfortunately there was no freebies in the box with this laptop and at nearly £3k it would have been nice to have a game or something to showcase the laptop's performance, especially from a company such as Razer that primarily make kit for gamers!
The laptop looks very slick and design-wise it's probably one of the nicest laptops I've ever seen. It's incredibly thin at 0.7 inch thick and feels very solid but it's not too heavy. It has a matte finish to the 1080p 240Hz screen and a really narrow bezel surrounding it. I really don't think they could have made this laptop any smaller if they tried - and to think it has an Intel i7 9750 and Nvidia Geforce 2080 Max-Q crammed in there really is quite mind blowing. The laptop has a black matte finish on its aluminium chassis, and yes, it's a massive fingerprint magnet! One thing I really don't like is the front lip for opening and closing the laptop, the edges of where this recesses are quite sharp and uncomfortable to rest your wrists on. Razer could have rounded this off and it would have been perfect.
Thankfully there's no backlight bleed or dead pixels at all on this laptop which is a massive relief because once I see something like that I'll always focus on it afterwards and it will just irritate me! The screen is very clear and the colours are great. It's perhaps not as bright as some other laptops but for indoor use it's absolutely fine. The 240Hz refresh rate makes a massive difference, even in Windows, and the mouse cursor and dragging windows etc. is buttery smooth. Unfortunately this laptop's screen doesn't support Nvidia G-Sync which would have been the icing on the cake, but apparently G-Sync does not work with Optimus (laptops that use the Intel graphics when in Windows and switch to the Nvidia graphics when gaming etc.). You can always plug a G-Sync monitor into one of it's various display connectivity ports and it will work fine.
The keyboard has very shallow travel in the keys which I'm still getting used to but that is something that some people prefer. The 'Up' cursor arrow on the keyboard is located in between the right shift key and the / key. Whoever came up with that design decision has obviously never used a keyboard before. For starters most gamers will use W, S, A and D instead of the cursor keys. Anyone who types and uses their right pinky finger to press the shift key is going to find themselves constantly pressing 'Up' when typing... and that is... really infuriating but I am getting used to it.
The lack of back lighting on the function and symbol keys is a really bad design decision by Razer, especially as they have been criticised for this with earlier models. I'm really disappointed that they didn't sort it out for this laptop which is incredibly expensive and one of their flagship models... it just seems that despite so much backlash from this they decided to not fix it... unless you live in America. Razer do not sell spare parts so even if a new version of the keyboard is released for the UK laptops with this fixed you probably won't be able to buy one and install it yourself. If you use a keyboard a lot then you will remember which symbols are on which keys but now I find myself inadvertently needing to think about where a key is if the lightning is quite low in the room - not so much for gaming but for browsing the net etc. On the plus side you do have full control of the keyboard lighting with the Razer Synapse software which gives per-key Razer Chroma lighting and profiles etc.
Gaming wise I've been really impressed with this laptop so far. The 2080 Max-Q demolishes anything I've thrown at it in 1080p and the 240Hz refresh rate does make things even smoother (it's just not G-Sync though!). It's definitely not desktop 2080 performance that's for sure - it's a heavily down clocked 2080 and performs roughly the same as a desktop 2070 which is still impressive for a device this size. This laptop has the 90W version of the 2080 Max-Q (opposed to the 80W version) and therefore is slightly faster. There's plenty of benchmarks out there to give you an idea of performance though. VR is buttery smooth on this laptop, including the Valve Index which is a brand new headset with higher resolution and refresh rates than previous headsets.
At a push I can probably get about 5 hours out of the laptop with the screen brightness and keyboard lighting set very low and just browsing the internet on WiFi. Anything more demanding and the battery life plummets quite quickly. When gaming don't expect any miracles with the battery life and perhaps an hour at the most - I've not really tested this because it's very noticeable that you are running on battery as the frame rate and quality is heavily reduced. At least the Nvidia Experience software is fairly aggressive on settings when running on battery to try and extend the battery life.
Noise and Temperatures:
When using the laptop on battery for things like browsing the net etc. it's completely silent and the fans only come on when the CPU is being heavily utilised for anything. When gaming and plugged into the mains the cooling fans are quite loud but it is supposed to be quieter than a lot of other gaming laptops out there. You will probably want headphones if you are gaming to drown the fans out, which have a white noise tone to them. The 2080 Max Q seems to max out at 70 degrees after a reasonably long gaming session. The cooling solution is borderline sufficient for this laptop and I 'm not going to even attempt to overclock the GPU or CPU. Due to the limited cooling capacity of this laptop the temperatures will definitely spiral out of control very quickly. The CPU temperatures really seem to be the problem with this laptop though and I've seen them getting into the 90's which is pretty close to the TJ Max of the CPU (in which case it will start to throttle heavily). I used Intel's Extreme Tuning Utility to apply a 140mV under volt (-0.140V) on the CPU and that has made quite a difference but this CPU just runs very hot under load. You can also use ThrottleStop to achieve the same thing but there's a bit of learning curve and a lot of settings that you most likely won't use. You shouldn't have to under volt a brand new laptop to stop the CPU from melting though.
The bottom of the laptop also gets incredibly hot when gaming so it'd definitely not suitable to use on your lap unless you fancy becoming infertile. I purchased a Gryf Lapdesk (ASIN B07BG9RS78) which means I can use it on my laptop for gaming if I want to but I prefer to use it on a table. Whilst gaming the area above the function keys gets quite hot but the keyboard itself is relatively cool. You can feel the air being dragged through the keyboard which is quite an ingenious way of keeping it cool with just the middle of the keyboard being warm to the touch. The laptop cools down pretty quickly after you stop gaming as does the volume of the fans.
The trackpad on this laptop is massive and much bigger than most of its competitors. The mouse buttons are integrated into the trackpad but I think I would have preferred individual buttons for left and right clicks. It's not a bad trackpad and it's quite nice to use but I had to turn some of the multi finger gestures off because it would incorrectly register a 3 or 4 finger swipe which minimises your windows etc. This could actually be a Windows issue and not the trackpad itself though. I'm using a wireless mouse with this laptop quite a lot which works fine but one thing that is really annoying is that when I have a mouse connected I don't want the trackpad to work because tapping the trackpad with your palm causes accidental movement or clicks in Windows and games. The trackpad can be turned on and off in the Windows trackpad settings BUT there's no keyboard function key or option in the Razer Synapse to toggle this feature so you have to open the settings every time you want to change it. If you leave your Logitech mouse's dongle connected all the time then Windows will think a mouse is connected even if the mouse is turned off and you'll need to go into the trackpad settings to turn it off.... or wear out a USB port by repeatedly inserting and removing a USB dongle.
There is a webcam built in that supports Windows Hello for Bio-metric unlock and this seems to work really well but as a webcam the quality is very poor and you would be better off with an external webcam if you plan on video calling etc. There is no Ethernet port on this laptop which is not ideal but the Wireless works really well and also supports WiFi 6 which is a new standard that hasn't been widely adopted yet. I found the Amazon Basics USB 3 to Ethernet adapter works really well and I keep that in my laptop bag in case I ever need to connect a network cable. The laptop only has a 12 month warranty which I'm not too pleased about considering how much it cost. I decided to purchase a separate extended warranty with accidental cover... just in case. I'm appalled that Razer are not offering NMVE drives larger than 512 GB as a configuration option. This is a high end gaming laptop and it's very easy to fill 512 GB when you have to factor in your Windows installation too. I upgraded the drive to a 2TB Samsung EVO 970 Plus which works perfectly but is another significant cost on top of a significantly more expensive laptop.
I really love this laptop but the small number of shortcomings are stopping me from giving it a full 5 stars because it's not perfect and those things do annoy me. As this price point this should be the perfect laptop but I can't say that it is but it does come close for me.
1. UK keyboard layout (and apparently all non-US layouts) does NOT have led lighting on the symbols and function keys - major letdown and false advertising by Razer in this respect. This was supposed to be an improvement of the 2019 model, mention on Razer's website and most reviews of the product.
2. Some noticeable backlight bleeding (on my 144hz 1080p display) - this may vary between units but I am not the only one complaining. Mine is not too bad, but it says something about Razer's quality control.
3. Lid does not perfectly align with the bottom of the chasis - enough to fire my ocd.
4. Bendy metal case - now this far from what you will get on, say, a Gigabyte ultraslim gaming laptop or a Clevo, but this is definitely not a mac in that respect. Better use a good laptop bag/case.
