    Hey guys

    I just recently bought a mid 2019 Blade 15 Advanced with 2070 max q and 240hz screen. I got it for about 2500 bucks from best buy (for some reason it was 100 bucks off?)

    Anyway i have decided to repaste with liquid metal and while im a pretty experienced computer builder and tinkerer i noticed that HIDEvoloution offers this same service when buying a razer from them only i noticed the exact laptop i bought from bestbuy, from them is 2800+ without factoring in the repaste.

    What gives? Why are they selling this machine for literally more than any place else including razer themselves?

    Is there someone here from HID that can give me some input? Do they offer price match or anything?

    I would return this machine and buy one from them instead + a repaste and maybe an SSD upgrade if they will at least sell this machine at MSRP without some nutty markup for no reason...

    Their pricing is like this because they arent an official reseller as far as I know.

    They have better CS who know well the tech for supporting buyers I heard. Maybe you can pm @Donald@HIDevolution for more details.

    HID doesn't offer much advantage for Razer laptops. They will not service these units in-house and must ship them to Razer for any repairs. I would also be wary of their "upgrades". Some others here haven't had much luck in that department.

    I know Razer forum Moderator who bought the Blade from Hidevolution, he got replacement power brick while having the old broken one not shipped apparently, with Razer Store you should send the defective unit first. That’s other user experience so I’m not quite sure about this, but I can ask if you need more accurate info.
    I know also that he broke the anchors and apparently he got that fixed even he did LM on his unit, usually on Razer’s warranty term breaking unit while doing that is not covered by guarantee, unless he cheats somehow or got great CS.
