Conclusion

I know right off the bat that people are going to criticize the battery life, screen resolution, and weight of the device, but I have to give Razer credit for creating such a bold product.

Razer EdgeThe game controller really makes a difference for tablet gaming and Razer’s concept just about nails it. I’m not saying it’s perfect, which it is far from, but it doesn’t take away from the fact that playing the latest games on this thing is a lot of fun.

I do agree that Razer needs to find a way to shed some weight to the tablet and Gamepad because playing it for an hour gets tiring regardless of how entrenched you are into your game.

There’s also the question of the Razer Edge’s relevance in the world where one can just buy a gaming laptop and hook up a gamepad. Also, if you are in the market for just a tablet for reading news and eBooks, there are plenty of other options. If you are looking for a gaming PC then you are still better off getting a desktop. However, if someone is looking for a tablet with laptop capabilities such as the Surface Pro and is a hardcore gamer, the Razer Edge is something that should definitely be considered.

Pros

  • Excellent controls
  • Performs very well
  • Great hardware considering size of device
  • Would be awesome for LAN parties
  • Very well constructed

Cons

  • Thick, heavy and uncomfortable after long use
  • Charge port not secure and falls off easily
  • No microSD or SD card Slot
  • Not really a practical device
