HP Omen 17 review

 

A monster of a gaming laptop that's relatively affordable

Affordable price ; 4K, G-Sync Display

Plastic-y build ; Large physical Size

Sacrifices in the HP Omen 17's fit and finish are a small trade-off for the graphical prowess it's capable of.

HP Omen 17 review

 

The 17-inch HP Omen hits the sweet spot. There are laptops with greater graphical grunt, but they're mostly either heavier or more expensive. There are thinner, lighter laptops, but they're mostly either less powerful or, yet again, more expensive. The...

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-inch) review: It's all about what's on the inside

 

What it lacks in flashy design or extras, this big-screen gamer makes up for in performance.

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 Omen 17 (2019)

 

HP's flagship Omen 17 blends an attractive design with strong performance to make a solid big-screened gaming rig. It's a good value, although its fans could be quieter and its upper configurations don't offer a configurable per-key backlit keyboard.

Powerful gaming performance with full-power Nvidia GPU. High-refresh-rate G-Sync display. Lots of factory options. Decent speakers. Gaming macro keys and Thunderbolt 3 port.

Noisy cooling fans. Keyboard backlighting is dim and not per-key configurable. Brief battery life.

Bottom Line: HP's flagship Omen 17 blends an attractive design with strong performance to make a solid big-screened gaming rig. It's a good value, although its fans could be quieter and its upper configurations don't offer a configurable per-key...

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.

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

 

The HP Omen 17 brings Nvidia's Pascal graphics, a 4K display, plenty of storage, and excellent performance to the midrange price tier, making it a good gaming laptop that is also a good value.

Attractive pricing. 4K display. Strong gaming performance. High storage capacity. Appealing, relatively slim design.

Plastic body. So-so touchpad.

Conclusion For a very reasonable price given the 4K display and the GTX 1070, the HP Omen 17 is an attractive proposition. Its performance is on par with or better than you'll see from midrange gaming laptops that cost more, many of which can't match...
