Hello friends,

Razer Raptor 27 - 165 Hz is a very good monitor.
I just find a little short only one year warranty, luckily there is Razer Care for added peace of mind. :)


Several competing monitors I checked have THREE year warranties as standard. There's no excuse as to why Razer cannot provide the same before having to shell out additional expense.

Edit:

Razer Care isn't offered on their monitors, so there goes that argument. Try again.

Hello SkyBill40,

You're right, I just read Razer Care contract in detail.
I'm out of luck, products not included. lol
I edit my message.
Thank for allowing me to correct my mistake. 🙂

If I only saw that "the updated Razer Raptor 27 is now both NVIDIA®️ G-Sync Compatible and supports AMD FreeSync" before I made the switch to 1440p with another brand, with no Chroma RGB. 😳
Maybe someone can help cut through my impulsiveness and bring me back to earth here. Keep my CRG9 or sell it for one of these?

So this year I bought a Samsung CRG9 and love it. A few complications that opened the door to me wanting to consider this monitor when I saw it though:

For streaming purposes: Bad choice of monitor. I have to create more scenes, more profiles for add-ons in WoW, and run in a different desktop resolution entirely so that I can stream in a format that won't have massive bars for viewers. Major downer that I didn't consider.

Gaming in general: Not nearly as cumbersome as many warned me about. It has great image quality and it's very smooth in most games running. Making sure games run in 5120x1440 can be a bummer at times but when you find something that does (Doom, World of Warcraft, etc.) it just feels so enthralling.

That said, I'm drawn to image quality and performance over screen size. I thought a 3080 would be able to push this 5120x1440 a bit harder to maintain 120hz a bit more consistently across AAA titles but that's not too huge of a complaint. It performs very well and I'm satisfied each time I play it.

I know the Raptor 27 is overpriced. What makes it approachable to me is 1: Obviously the image quality, 2: My 3080 will make this monitor SING, 3: I'm a Razer addict and want everything Razer if I can so I'm good with the Razer tax, and 4: I find extra value from the base for multiple reasons. Main ones being the RGB and cable routing for all those various ports.

I can't help but feel like I'd be taking a step back in a lot of ways and giving in to new toy effect making the swap from a 49 inch ultrawide to a 27 inch.

The best comes at a price, but that's definetively out of range for me.

I'll stay with my 200€ 32" 75hz that runs at 120Hz natively.^^

Lookin' to snag one of these bad boys, although I'm only getting the 144Hz one, since I honestly don't need that much frame rate, even 60-75Hz is good enough for me.

As for the hecklers saying it's not worth it for the price...
In comparison to other monitors, like my ASUS one I have right now, which was $200 for 75Hz and AMD FreeSync, sure, it would seem overpriced for the average consumer. But some things to consider:
--It's Razer brand, and as far as I've seen with my own products, the quality is virtually assured to be top notch, and if it's not, their customer service was actually pretty helpful with me and my Mamba Wireless when my first one had a bum left-click.
--It's gonna be 165Hz, which if we're talking about a 1440p, 165Hz monitor, unless you're the power gamer type who gets the most expensive builds, like an RTX 3090 or two 3080's, and a i9-9900K, the odds are, you won't even be able to make great use of both 1440p and 165Hz, and if you do, it's probably only going to be on lighter titles that don't need such high-end specs in the first place.
--It includes FreeSync and G-Sync, which are really helpful tools and helps with compatibility between builds, which is especially helpful if you're wanting to stream with this monitor between two PCs, one with an AMD graphics card and the other with an Nvidia one.

Not trying to persuade anyone that the price is 100% reasonable, but just acknowledging that the target audience for this monitor could definitely find use out of these specs. It certainly could get outdated within the next decade, but for what specs most enthusiast PCs have and what games are out that we want to run, I think it's pretty fair. Certainly open to hearing the other side of this, though.
Good monitor but too expensive for me
