HP Omen (17-inch) review

 

For the most part, gaming laptops are made to look aggressive, with angular bodies, multicolored lights on the lid and keyboard and big stylized fan vents. You might also find extra buttons or other controls on the keyboard deck, making these systems...

The 17-inch HP Omen is available in several configurations depending on your needs and budget. Reasonably priced even with its top-end, VR-ready version. Low-key design and good battery life compared to other gaming systems. Nice ultra HD-resolution...

Lacks the flashy design or macro/shortcut keys found on other gaming laptops. Can get hot and loud under load. No USB-C ports. No touchscreen.

The 17-inch HP Omen might not look aggressive, but you'll have no problems taking down the competition with this fully loaded gaming laptop.

HP's 4K Omen 17 has good gaming graphics at a great price

 

Nvidia GeForce 1070 graphics in a 17-inch laptop for $1,700. Those numbers add up well.

The HP Omen 17 comes in a wide range of configurations, most of which offer good graphical bang for your buck.

The 4K variant has poor battery life, no option for a Nvidia GeForce 1080 GPU.

It's not the most powerful gaming laptop out there, nor the slimmest one, but it's among the best combinations of price, screen size and performance.

HP Omen 17 (2017) review: You get a lot of gaming laptop for the money

 

An updated design fixes some flaws in last year's Omen gaming laptop, but the real selling point is still its great value.

Great specs for the price ; Nice build quality

Mediocre touchpad ; Sound quality not up to par with other big gaming laptops

The 2017 version of the HP Omen 17-inch gaming laptop is a small but welcome update from . It still has some room to grow, with “just okay” audio and a “just okay” touchpad, along with a rather pedestrian aesthetic. But at least it’s not nearly as...

HP Omen 17 (2017)

 

The new HP Omen 17 bears a new exterior design and fast gaming performance, but is largely same as last year's on the inside and carries a higher price tag.

Fast gaming performance. 4K display good for media viewing. Plenty of ports.

Expensive for components and build. GTX 1070 isn't powerful enough for gaming on the 4K screen.

Bottom Line: The new HP Omen 17 is still good for gaming, but the high price tag and minimal improvements over its predecessor make it a questionable buy.

HP Omen 17 – Review

 

The HP Omen range is supposed to represent the top table of gaming technology, but we've not been impressed in the past – the Omen X desktop was a bit of a disaster .

HP’s latest laptop delivers great gaming speed, decent benchmarks elsewhere and a solid multimedia experience thanks to its good screen and speakers. Battery life is solid, too.
