In a few words
Latest release in the range Razer, we’ve been running tests onRZ09-02385F92-R3F1…Price and type of technology alone do not justify the choice of a model.From basic use (the Web, and e-mail) to online gaming with powerful machines.
This article will help you make the right choice according to your needs.
RZ09-02385F92-R3F1 to surf the Internet?
We can consider that for certain uses, such as surfing the web, it is not necessary to buy a high-powered model. This RZ09-02385F92-R3F1 is a lower quality laptop for those who are not very attentive. The material used by Razer are of average quality and the components have characteristics that are already dating. So you can understand that you will not keep this product for more than 4 years.
It’s almost the perfect tool for travelling. A screen 15.6 inches that makes this model transportable anywhere. Also note that this model is equipped with a touch screen; always interesting for when you get tired of the slippery mouse pad or when no flat surface is available when you have this RZ09-02385F92-R3F1 on your lap. The materials here are of such a high standard that they will last for many years. Knowing that the visible parts are generally less important than the internal components of the computer, we can guess that a lot of care Razer has been taken in the overall design of this model.
The manufacturer offers a processor Intel Core i7-8750H; A mid-range orientation. Indeed, this processor is starting to date compared to what is on the market today. For a few euros more, it is possible to switch to more powerful processors. So certainly, with this laptop you have enough resources for internet surfing and word processing, but you may have to change it in less than 5 years. Very clearly, with only 168 Gb ofRAM, this laptop is not the best equipped model. It is highly likely that if you decide to use the RZ09-02385F92-R3F1, you will have to add at least 2 Gb to one of the avaiilable.Thanks to this, the laptop will allow a more fluid navigation.
This is one of the smallest available disk space among the laptops of the moment. By offering only 512 Gb, this RZ09-02385F92-R3F1 is one of the smallest in its category. This shouldn’t be a major problem, but if you need to, remember to have a USB key with you.
Finally, the autonomy of 6 hours is one of the worst on the market. This is lower than what you can find in its competitors for the same price range. In other words, you will have to keep this RZ09-02385F92-R3F1 most of the time connected to the power cable.
RZ09-02385F92-R3F1 the right choice for watching movies ?
Razer has not designed this model for strictly multimedia use. If you are very mindful of the quality for multimedia use, we advise you to turn to models other than the RZ09-02385F92-R3F1; more high-end products, which on the other hand will be a little more expensive. Finally, a simple computer, yet not really made for audio and video.
As for the screen, it is a model of reduced size, 15.6 inches, with a 1920×1080. Despite this, the colors are correct, and the contrasts allow you to see the details. The only criticism that could be drawn is its size, which makes it a small device compared to other competing models at the same price; over a whole day, it can tire the eyes. However, this computer has a criteria that will interest some nomadic users, the weight; here it weighs only 2.1 kg, partly thanks to its small screen size.
As far as sound is concerned, the card equipment and speakers have been integrated into this RZ09-02385F92-R3F1. We tested it with movies and music at maximum volume. Despite good quality, you won’t get the same sound level as with a decent set of external speakers. In short, it is relevant here to consider buying additional speakers if you are very sensitive to the quality of this function.
Unfortunately, this laptop has only got the processor Intel Core i7-8750H, which today is rather light for this kind of use. As a result, in the important calculation phase, it may be a little brighter, and will consume more energy. However, as long as you only run one application at a time, it may be enough.
Equipped with the GeForce GTX 1060 graphic card, and with 168 Gb of RAM, you will be able to see your movies and even do photo editing if needed. Sufficient for the majority of you, this will not be the case for those who want to make 3D images.
Razer didn’t prioritize connectivity on this laptop. The RZ09-02385F92-R3F1 only 3 ports only provides you with ports. It’s a little tight for you to plug everything in at once.
For multimedia use in travel or on-the-go mode, this RZ09-02385F92-R3F1 may not be suitable. That’s only 6 hours of battery life you have at your disposal. You will have to anticipate the duration of the films, otherwise you will not know the end. Therefore, it is best to use this computer constantly plugged into an outlet, without worrying about battery life.
RZ09-02385F92-R3F1 the right choice for travelling connected ?
It RZ09-02385F92-R3F1 is certainly a laptop, but not really portable and certainly not intended for those who travel. At least that’s what we find out a priori. Having tested this laptop in situations as diverse as traveling, in a suitcase between shirts and jeans, while traveling between home and work, on a family weekend, here’s what you should remember.
Reserve its use at home, between your living room and your bedroom.
With a weight of 2.1 Kg, it is easily transportable. It’s one of the best in its class. When sitting with the computer on your lap, it is perfectly wedged to prevent it from tipping over. With a 15.6 inches screen, it is not easy to surf the internet or to look at pictures in a group.
Razer has decided to provide a touch screen on the RZ09-02385F92-R3F1. Always convenient, the operating mode is as simple as on your smartphone. It’s up to you to make accurate navigational selections.
The keypad RZ09-02385F92-R3F1 is equipped with backlighting. And our test – in the secretary-like way (thus intensive) – showed that it was of good quality.
It is a product that is easy and pleasant to use. Good image definition and a matt anti-reflective tile that you’ll appreciate when you’re outdoors, with no sun glare.
With the installation of the processor Intel Core i7-8750H, the power consumption is rather important.
The result is a poorer autonomy. This figure is an estimate and consider instead that you will have 70% of this autonomy.
Battery life is worse than the competitors, with only 6 hours before the laptop has to be plugged back into the mains.
In order to speed up booting up and calculations, this laptop is equipped with a hard drive type SSD of 512 Gb. SSDs are much faster and lighter, and have no moving parts. With SSD technology, however, you benefit from a considerable improvement in the time it takes your notebook to start up and get out of standby mode.And if you absolutely need more storage, you can buy an external drive, or take out a cloud account.
Even though your laptop will stay in the hotel more often than in a briefcase when you take it to the airport, you will appreciate its volume. Equipped with a compact 15.6 inches screen, it is one of the smallest models of the moment.
The connector part is less well supplied, with only 3 possibilities. He’s one of the far less equipped laptops around right now.
With the bluetooth functionality of this model you can also simply connect with your loved ones’ devices.
Following our tests, it appeared to us that it is not RZ09-02385F92-R3F1 really made for travelling.
The RZ09-02385F92-R3F1 for audio or video editing ?
Definitely not intended for audio and video editing. This type of use requires power and memory, which this model lacks. Even if it would be possible to do audio or video cutting, it doesn’t seem to correspond to this need. Razer has favoured more standard uses, which require less computing speed. You should also be aware that this model is becoming outdated. So use this laptop for simple tasks, otherwise you’ll reach the limits and very often you’ll have frozen screens .
The software suite installed by default on this model provides the bare minimum to start working. You can always try to do video editing with the processor Intel Core i7-8750H. The general design is now too old to consider this type of use in a pro version.
This model contains an SSD for the operating system and backup part. The advantage is the speed of starting and execution, but the disadvantage is the shorter lifetime of the disk. The RZ09-02385F92-R3F1 allows a price reduction with this choice, with an available space of 512 Gb. It is nevertheless one of the good laptops in terms of storage, compared to its competitors.
As with most laptops, don’t expect incredible battery life (6 hours). This is less than average, so we advise you to keep the power cable close by, otherwise you may lose your work unexpectedly. With most competitors on the market, this figure is better.
On the connection side, the RZ09-02385F92-R3F1i s equipped with USB 3 technology. An interesting format for transfers when you want to move your large audio-video files. In addition, this technology offers a better rate of high-speed file transfer between your laptop and external drives.
Clearly, it’s not RZ09-02385F92-R3F1 designed for audio-visual editing. This also explains its price positioning below the laptops designed for this specific use.
RZ09-02385F92-R3F1 the right choice to play online?
It is sometimes interesting, when you decide to buy a laptop, to be able to use it for several functions. With this RZ09-02385F92-R3F1, it will certainly be possible to play simple games, but as soon as the need for calculations requires more power, the image rendering will degrade. Clearly, Razer has done nothing here to meet that purpose.
Provided with a resolution of 1920×1080, this model is unfortunately much less equipped than its competitors. The visual comfort during the game phase, and the image quality will be less good.
Each year the power of the components increases, so this model is now far behind the others. Tests have shown the limitations of this laptop, including some image degradation and processor temperature rises. Finally, if you want to play often, we recommend a model with more power.
Since Razer has not designed this model for gaming, the display system is not dimensioned for an exemplary reactivity during your gaming sessions. Unless you play games with designs older than 5-10 years.
On the question of hard drive size, this model is not very good.512 Gb are the minimum for computers today, making it one of the laptops with the least amount of space.
Because you will have to carry it sometimes, you will appreciate its weight, 2.1 Kg, among the lightest of the moment.
One of the lowest battery life 6 hours, which will force you to often leave this laptop plugged in.
In short, an average rendering that makes this RZ09-02385F92-R3F1 a poor choice for video games, whether local or online. But it can be a good choice for office functions.
The RZ09-02385F92-R3F1 for office automation.
In case your unique and main everyday use is a tool for office automation, Razer may have put a rather low computer on the market. In detail, here’s what’s going on.
If you’re already a Linux or Apple user, your choice will probably head for this laptop. In this case, it is Windows 10.
Assuming that you will have to take this laptop to the office, on a trip, or any other travel, you will appreciate its weight. This model, with its 2.1 Kg is one of the ultra-compact ones.
For office use, chances are that the absence of the numeric keypad will annoy you over time. Unless you only do word processing that does not require its use.
Thanks to the matt treated screen surface, there is almost no reflection of direct sunlight or lamps in the offices. In use, a matte screen gets dirty less quickly than a glossy one.
When working in semi-dark areas, you will appreciate the backlighting of the keypad on this RZ09-02385F92-R3F1.
The storage of this model, 512 Gb, is one of the smallest. Not really a problem for office use, but perhaps penalizing for some users.
In short, the RZ09-02385F92-R3F1 is an average choice. Or for occasional use, knowing that due to its technical characteristics it will be obsolete in less than 3 years.
Finally, the RZ09-02385F92-R3F1….
This RZ09-02385F92-R3F1 will be a one-time choice, and for moderate use. It’s not expensive, but it’s almost too much considering its low power.
Simply put, we were not convinced for uses such as :
– web browsing
– listening to music and watching videos
– travel use
– make audio and video editing
– playing video games
– office tasks
