HP Omen 17 review: Great gaming performance at a great price

 

You can think of HP's updated Omen 17 as that sleeper car that pulls up next to your tricked-out ride at a stoplight.

HP Omen 17 review

 

Hardcore gaming in a go-anywhere shell: can HP's Omen deliver?

Stacks of power to deal with almost anything at Full HD resolutions ; Handles VR surprisingly well ; Outputs to monitors without complaint

Build feels plasticky and creaky ; Screen is washed-out ; Ridiculously bulky and heavy ; 90-minute gaming battery life on average

A consummate gaming machine with a shoddy build, there are cheaper, prettier ways to enjoy VR

HP Omen 17 Review

 

HP enters the Indian gaming laptop market rather late with the OMEN series and they could have done better with the extra time they had on their hands.

Comparatively low-priced ; Has a NVIDIA GTX 1070 ; Really good display panel

Not enough USB 3.0 ports. No USB Type-C port either. ; Build quality can be much better. ; No easy access for the SSD or HDD.

Aside from putting in a GTX 1070, there really isn’t much about this laptop that would attract the “gaming” label. Performance wise, the HP Omen 17 does take a few steps back because of the older CPU but when it comes to gaming it decimates practically...

HP Omen 17 review: Great for gaming, but expensive

 

Though a late entrant in the segment, HP Omen 17 might just be able to give the older players competition. Here is our full review.

HP Omen 17 (7700HQ, GTX 1050 Ti, FHD) Laptop Review

 

Wasted opportunities. This year's Omen 17 update brings us a Pascal GPU, 16 GB of RAM, and a powerful Kaby Lake CPU. Our review is going to reveal whether or not we can recommend the Omen 17 despite some drawbacks.

decent SSD + 1 TB hard drive ; user-replaceable battery ; nice design ; fast CPU & GPU ; 16 GB of RAM ; long battery life on low and medium load ; good price

noise ; temperature ; very noticeable screen bleeding ; PWM flickering ; dpc latencies ; poor touchpad ; complicated maintenance

The Omen 17-w206ng left us slightly flabbergasted and disappointed. Our gut feeling tells us that this could have been a very powerful notebook if only HP hadn’t screwed up.Its design is overall pleasing, and its components are well-balanced and...

HP Omen 17 (GTX 1060) Notebook Review

 

Well-balanced. At a purchase price of almost 1300 Euros (~$1390), the Omen 17 w100ng is presently the cheapest device within its lineup. This slightly lower-performance model also renders games smoothly on its matte Full HD panel. The Omen offers a...

good price-performance ratio ; M.2 socket supports NVMe ; G-Sync support ; matte IPS panel ; SSD+HDD

touchpad makes inferior impression ; no USB 3.1 Gen2 Type-C

The entry-level model of the Omen lineup does not feature a Core i7 CPU but "only" offers a Core i5-6300HQ processor. Consequently, the buyer "only" has to cough up 1300 Euros (~$1390). However, the installed processor has more than enough computing...

HP Omen 17 (i7-6700HQ, GTX 1070) Notebook Review

 

Omen meets Pascal. After other manufacturers of high-end laptops already equipped their systems with the latest Nvidia GPU generation, HP now follows with the Omen series and launches a gaming machine for an appealing price. But is the...

IPS display (wide viewing angles and high contrast) ; no backlight bleeding, no PWM ; good price-performance ratio ; G-Sync support ; fast NVMe-SSD ; stylish keyboard illumination ; high gaming performance ; 8 GB VRAM ; fast processor ; thin, nice...

no USB 3.1 Gen. 2 ; touchpad leaves a cheap impression ; complicated maintenance ; no optical drive ; integrated battery

Many people think about business or office notebooks when they hear HP, but the Omen name represents the gaming series from HP. Our test model, the Omen 17-w110ng, can meet the expectations for a gaming notebook. Users get a powerful CPU/GPU...

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.
