Is there any way to obtain the QWERTY US Blade in Germany without forward freighting? According to Razer Limited Warranty, the Warranty is only valid in the country of purchase (read - not Germany). Thinking back to the battery problems, I don't want to be punished and stuck without a warranty just because I want to have a laptop with a standard keyboard.
What should I do? I'm either stuck with QWERTZ (which is horrible as I am programming) or I'm stuck without a warranty (which is horrible once the battery starts swelling).
No local retailers offer QWERTY US layout. None. Moreover, as I was told, they can't even order any other layout than QWERTZ (I spoke to Saturn and some others).
Amazon DE doesn't offer anything other than QWERTZ. Amazon from other countries = paying 20-30% more than MSRP, and 99% of the time the laptop is not available for delivery. eBay is full of scam.
Thanks for the advice, but no.
Razer should just list the QWERTY US layout on the German website. That is not hard for Razer to do - and there will be a lot of happy customers coming directly from the Razer Store website.
I am not alone in Germany who wants a QWERTY layout instead of QWERTZ. This is evident by a lot of similar posts, Razer Insider included:
Exceptional, Razer. /s
You can find a variety of US ANSI Blades available from sellers in Germany, and many of them offer international shipping
This is a blatant lie. Provide at least one example, please?
This is not a lie Amazon sometimes has Razer blade with US layout or directly imported from Amazon US, you can also check on laptop seller on eBay or use idealo search engine with key US tastatur/ keyboard anded with the model you’re searching.
I understand it’s hard to search non qwertz keyboard here for your wish laptops model, i wish I can find Japan keyboard layout Razer blade but it was difficult and import from Japan is way more expensive than US through Amazon, i even noticed lower prices due better mrsp in US on Amazon. I even use Nordic keyboard now on my book 13, sometimes if you’re lucky it’s cheaper since no one or rarely poeple buy it, so please check out on Amazon, at this time i write this post I didn’t find a good one (latest model with reasonable price) but once new model are restocked on Amazon maybe you’ll find some.
Then provide at least one example of Razer Blade 2022/2023 that I can buy in Germany with QWERTY layout...? Anyone?
Firstly, QWERTY US is the standard keyboard layout, all others are non-standard niche layouts.
Secondly, I, yet again, remind you that Germany is a part of EU. And Razer has the EU-EN store that operates in EU. And it has the US layout option.
Therefore, your comparison with Japanese layout is bonkers.
Buying from US means I won't have any warranty. Which is unacceptable when it comes to Razer Blade. I have to buy the laptop in EU (at least).
I repeat, Razer should deliver to Germany from EU-EN store OR list the US layout option in the German store. I am NOT the only one asking for it: /german-online-store-general-demand-for-us-layout.76634/
You don’t believe me!? Simple google search you’ll land here.
I think I saw also pre order blade 16 since mrsp was different like somehow converted currency but I’m not sure about that.
Because it is reseller ask yourself if they cover the guarantee, can’t answer this but my book 13 with Nordic keyboard has 2 years guarantee from them, but it’s different story.
You can whining all the time, if selling laptops with us layout in EU doesn’t make profit and only add more problems like stocking issue i don’t see the merits from that. I think notebook.de had also the problem, can’t sell the stock. As for EU layout on EU store I think it’s limited to some regions that not covered by big Razer stores due some imports or taxes procedures, this is I’m not quite sure but EU laws quite complicated for both costumers and manufacturers.
It’s indeed officially, but I saw some users in different regions still got support from that region where he’s living at that time, not in EU though, but basically Razer has service points on most big regions here, maybe in the future they’ll cover it “officially“.

Holy hell are you clueless. Now, onto the "you don't believe me?" part.
The only laptops you've linked are the old versions of Blade which somehow ended up here. Razer never offered them directly. They are ridiculously overpriced and are exceptions. There are basically just two. That's it.
1. I‘m on those Reddit it’s rarely poeple asking that.
2. Yes, then buy from there if you can, from Germany store it’s not possible yet. Or get as I said from retailers.
3. It’s if you buy from Razer directly from retailers some of them restocking, there’re indeed order system but will take time until the costumer get it.
4. No I think they don’t, they’re not as big as Asus Apple etc, having only 4 laptops model and now 2023 plus 2 new 16 ang 18, i believe it’s almost full of capacity if we’re talking about storage they won’t bother hearing your whining asking US layout in country that doesn’t have it for now.
5. Not all, and sometimes out of stock, the rest explanation same with number 4.
Nope you can buy from Amazon US directly from Amazon Germany as well but now the don’t have any, and only that atm since new model out, they don’t have stock anymore, again stock. Razer laptops isn’t cheap yes you can say overpriced but it’s what it’s, they don’t do budget.
I have the same problem in france and I try to contact with their customer service but unfortunately they don’t have any solution for it.
Razer should know if you don’t care end-users’ expectations you will lose your future.
