As a preamble to this test

Latest release in the range Razer, we’ve been running tests onRZ09-02385F92-R3F1…Our analysis was made according to 6 user typologies.To make the choice easier, we have judged this Razer RZ09-02385F92-R3F1 according to what you are going to do with it.
After reading this article you will know if this model suits your needs.

RZ09-02385F92-R3F1 compatible with internet use?

We can consider that for certain uses, such as surfing the web, it is not necessary to buy a high-powered model. With this RZ09-02385F92-R3F1, the company wanted to design a very basic model. The material used by Razer are of average quality and the components have characteristics that are already dating. In other words, don’t expect to keep it for more than 3 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 appear to be designed to last several 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. A technical choice to reduce the final price of the laptop. The compromise could be on a model with a smaller screen size but with a better processor. 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 will be a very good idea to spend a few extra euros to upgrade your computer with an extra 2Gb or 4Gb. 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. With only 512 Gb, Razer considers that you won’t need to store too many files locally, and that you’ll rather do it on a public cloud. Not prohibitive in your daily use, but annoying; If you are used to consuming space, think about having a large USB key or external hard drive near you.
Last point concerning the autonomy of 6 hours: A time of freedom that you will have to take into account and keep the power kit not too far away. The batteries that equip this model are less efficient than those of other models in the same category. 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. In other words, a computer dedicated to “classic” uses for most users, but not specifically audio and video oriented.
Equipped with a small screen size, 15.6 inches, it has a resolution format 1920×1080. Despite this, the colors are correct, and the contrasts allow you to see the details. Continuously over the course of a day’s work or movie viewing, you may feel tired; such a small screen means you have to concentrate more to see better. The big advantage of this size, however, is the weight: here you have a laptop that weighs only a 2.1 kilogram.
As far as sound is concerned, the card equipment and speakers have been integrated into this RZ09-02385F92-R3F1. To test the audio quality, we turned up the volume with a movie trailer and then with a few songs of different types. Even if the result is good, be aware that even the best laptops will never beat a hi-fi system on this point. In other words, if you are demanding on the sound part, you will have to add external speakers.
Even if the use of this laptop does not require the latest generation of processor, be aware that it Intel Core i7-8750H is now outdated. The result will be higher electricity consumption and less quiet than in recent generations. However, as long as you only run one application at a time, it may be enough.
As far as applications are concerned, did Razer not install any. There’s only the operating system. This is a Windows 10 that allows you to add the free or paid software you want. Can only be VLC to manage the audio and video part.
With GeForce GTX 1060, ahigh-performance graphics card, a dedicated memory of 168 Gb of RAM, you can watch movies, with smooth images, possibly retouch photos or edit video. Not good enough for 3D imaging professionals, but good enough for most of us.
Connectivity is unlikely to be a priority for Razer. 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.
It RZ09-02385F92-R3F1 is one of the worst endowed laptops on the market. With only a little autonomy, you don’t have a lot of time. A management of the time available to take into account when you are on the move watching a movie. This situation may annoy many people, considering that the interest of a laptop is to be free of these details.

RZ09-02385F92-R3F1 compatible with on the move use ?

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.
Forget about vacations and commuting.
Its light weight allows you to take it wherever you want. It is one of the lightest in this category. It’s hard to have a large, lightweight laptop; the compromise is made according to your use. A 15.6 inches size that can be painful when you have to stay there for more than an hour.
Razer has decided to provide a touch screen on the RZ09-02385F92-R3F1. A few finger pinches to zoom in, side slides to test the comfort of use. It’s up to you to make accurate navigational selections.
The backlit keypad of this RZ09-02385F92-R3F1 is simple and convenient for when you’re in a taxi or a dimly lit subway. After spending some time typing on it, we can say it is of good quality.
This laptop is very comfortable to use. The image is beautiful, and with its anti-reflective matt tile, no more problems even outdoors.
The processor Intel Core i7-8750H is inferior to other competitive products.
Also, the batteries hold the charge for a shorter time; probably the worst results in this range. You will need to expect 2/3 of this estimate for standard use; if you push the processor, the number will drop a little more.
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 reduce the risk of breakage while on the move, this model is equipped with a 512 Gb SSD hard drive. The main advantage of this type of hard drive is that it contains fewer moving parts and is faster than standard drives.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.For those who do not have enough space on the disk, it will be necessary to go through the option of a subscription on the cloud; the price decreases regularly.
Thanks to a reduced space requirement, departures on holiday with all the plane-bus-hotel transfers will be simple. Its 15.6 inches screen is so compact that it’s almost the size of a large tablet.
It RZ09-02385F92-R3F1 provides only 3 connectors. He’s one of the far less equipped laptops around right now.
The techno bluetooth of this model will allow you to connect locally to any type of device that accepts this communication protocol: phone, connected speakers, car…
Because of all these elements, we do not recommend this RZ09-02385F92-R3F1 for travel use.

RZ09-02385F92-R3F1 the right choice for audio or video editing ?

The publishing or the musical creation are not the uses that the engineers of Razer have thought of for this RZ09-02385F92-R3F1. The weak point of this model is its processor, and its amount of memory. However, this does not prevent you from editing as long as you are patient and no other applications are launched. Note that this model is not of the latest generation. It will be more suitable for word processing and Internet browsing, and as soon as you try to run applications in parallel, you will have frozen screens and a rise in computer temperature, whose processor will quickly reach its operating limits.
It’s going to be a little harder on this model than on some of the other competitors. It is possible to edit, but it is not the task that the processor Intel Core i7-8750H does best. However, there’s no question of switching to professional applications; the processor performance and the 512 Gb disk size will calm your nerves due to their lack of power and space.
This model contains an SSD for the operating system and backup part. As a reminder, an audio and video editing use, involves a large capacity hard disk drive for storage, and speed of execution with an SSD. Here with 512 Gb you will have enough space to store everything. It’s a product that provides enough space to save all your audio and video creations.
The autonomy of this RZ09-02385F92-R3F1 is of 6 hours in normal use; This is less than average, so we advise you to keep the power cable close by, otherwise you may lose your work unexpectedly. Maybe the next model will be better off.
For the connector part, the RZ09-02385F92-R3F1has the USB3 format. The latest convenient protocol for interfacing computers and electronic devices such as external hard drives. This standard allows transmission speeds of up to 5 Gbit per second, about ten times faster than USB 2.0.
As you will have understood, it RZ09-02385F92-R3F1 proposes a rather basic oriented use. However, it will be perfect for web browsing and word processing.

RZ09-02385F92-R3F1 for video games?

It is sometimes interesting, when you decide to buy a laptop, to be able to use it for several functions. Our tests have shown that yhis RZ09-02385F92-R3F1 wasn’t designed for video games. Clearly, Razer has done nothing here to meet that purpose.
With only 1920×1080, this model is below standard ones. 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. Ideal for old design games, it has difficulty restoring the images and colors of the latest online games. 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. An exception to this is if you play on games that are more than 5 years old.
When it comes to disk space, this computer ranks low.He’s one of the worst of the moment, with only 512 Gb.
Even if the weight is not very important when you use it for games, know that this model is one of the lightest of the market with its 2.1 Kg.
For autonomy, 6 hours, this model is worse than most other laptops.
In the end, we do not recommend this RZ09-02385F92-R3F1 for games; low performance will degrade the rendering and playability. On the other hand, it is very suitable for word processing and multimedia.

Is the RZ09-02385F92-R3F1 adapted to 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. Review of the details for this new laptop.
Razer has designed this new laptop for the majority of users. It’s Windows 10, last generation.
It’s not RZ09-02385F92-R3F1 equipped with all the applications you’ll need. You will have to download the applications you need, which implyies for some software a slight increase in the overall cost.
One of the big advantages of a laptop is naturally its ability to follow you when you’re on the move. A weight of 2.1 Kg, which makes this computer one of the best in the lightest category.
The numeric keypad is not present on this model. As soon as you’ll have to do calculations on a spreadsheet, it will be less simple.
Our tests have verified that the matt treated screen limits the effects of light. But at the same time, the light intensity is low enough so as not to tire the eyes in the dark.
If you plan to use your computer at the end of the day, in total darkness or semi-darkness, opt for a backlit keyboard such as the one offered on the RZ09-02385F92-R3F1.
It’s one of the smallest backup spaces, with 512 Gb. If you’re working on shared documents in the cloud, such as Office365 or Google drive, no problem.
Simply put, it’s not RZ09-02385F92-R3F1 the best choice for office use. For the same price you will find more suitable and more powerful models.

Finally, the RZ09-02385F92-R3F1….

This RZ09-02385F92-R3F1 will be a one-time choice, and for moderate use. Its aging technology will make its use disappointing fairly quickly.
