HP Omni 27-1015T Review


IPS panel; HP’s Magic Canvas

Expensive; gimpy volume control in HDMI mode; no Blu-ray drive

We used to get excited when HP would send us its latest all-in-one. Each new model seemed to add some cool innovation or new feature that no other manufacturer had. The Omni 27-1015T has us wondering if the all-in-one pioneer has tired of pushing the...

HP Omni 27 Quad Review


Big display; HDMI input; HP’s Magic Canvas

Absurd volume control in HDMI mode; integrated graphics; display lacks precision for critical applications

THE DISPLAYS IN HP’s TouchSmart series top out at 23 inches. To get anything bigger, you must move over to HP’s Omni all-in-one lineup. The upper limit here is a ginormous 27 inches, but you won’t get that slick touch user interface, and you’ll need to...

HP Omni 27-1015t


If you're an avid movie watcher or video hobbyist, you probably already know about the video-friendly all-in-one desktop PC, the HP Omni 27. With the release of Intel's third-generation processing platform the Omni has gotten a hardware refresh. The...

Third-generation Intel Core i5 processor. Has a 27-inch HD display. Beats Audio. HDMI-in for expanded use. USB 3.0. Generous 15-month subscription to Norton Internet Security. A 2TB hard drive

No Blu-ray drive. Bloatware

The HP Omni 27-1015t has plenty of great features. Big screen, great sound, faster processor? Check, check, check. But, where's the Blu-ray drive?

HP Omni 27-1015t All-in-One Review: Beautiful, Affordable, Boring


As all-in-one desktops go, the HP Omni 27-1015t is a fairly standard entry. Though the screen is large and attractive, overall this machine lacks the “wow” factor necessary for it to stand out among the competition.

Large, beautiful 27-inch screen ; Speedy, high-capacity hard drive

Reflects a lot of glare at certain angles ; Screen not touch enabled

The HP Omni 27 101-T is a great all-in-one for use as a media streamer or a makeshift HDTV, but don't expect much computing performance.

HP Omni 27 Review


What happens when an all-in-one escapes HP's product laboratories and heads straight for the Cold Stone Creamery across the street? You end up with the HP Om-nom-nom … er, sorry. The HP Omni 27.

Attractive design ; Large display ; Excellent audio quality

Resolution is too low for the display’s size ; Limited video connectivity ; Poor performance ; Not a great value

HP’s TouchSmart line offers more functionality while the iMac is more powerful and more attractive. Given this competition, it’s hard to see where the big Omni fits.

HP Omni 27 Review


HP's made a name for its TouchSmart series of all-in-one desktops over the last few years, culminating in some quite desirable models as of late. But what about those consumers who want a large, stylish machine and have no particular need for expensive...

If you want a large all-in-one for a relative budget price, the HP Omni 27 is a great choice. While I would have liked to have seen a full 2560×1440 panel, the screen will be more than enough for most, and HP’s partnership with Beat Audio means a sound...

HP Omni 27 Quad


Hewlett-Packard's Omni 27 doesn't match Apple's highest-end iMac in display resolution, but for anyone interested in using a Windows all-in-one as an entertainment hub, you will immediately appreciate the benefits of the Omni 27's large...

For now, the HP Omni 27 has the largest display available among Windows-based all-in-ones.

Despite its big screen, the Omni 27's other specs are only average for its price.

HP's Omni 27 is the king of Windows all-in-ones in terms of screen size, but you'd be smart to wait and compare it with the other 27-inchers due out later this year.

HP Omni 27


2012 is shaping up to be a big year for big screens. Samsung recently announced that it has sold 5 million Galaxy Notes, a jumbo smartphone with a tablet-like 5.3-inch screen, and more big-screen smartphones are expected to follow from other companies...

Large-screen PC at a relatively low price ; Decent productivity performance ; Excellent audio ; Upgradable

High-end configuration is pricier than similar Asus model ; Lack of a touch screen makes a future Windows 8 upgrade less appealing

Those looking for a big-screen machine at a relatively low price will find a lot to like with HP’s Omni 27. But its lack of a touch screen will make an eventual Windows 8 upgrade less appealing.

Review: HP Omni 27 all-in-one desktop PC


When we reviewed the HP TouchSmart 610-1030a all-in-one last year, we questioned just how useful most users would find the touch interface on a desktop PC. Thankfully HP has provided a non-touch alternative for those not likely to find much benefit...

HP Omni 27


The Omni 27 from HP is an all-in-one computer meant for basic computing, multitasking and the occasional high-definition movie. You can expect average performance from the computer, but the audio system is excellent and the large screen boasts a clear...

The Beats Audio is excellent. The speaker emits a variety of lows and highs no matter what you're listening to

For a computer with such an impressive display, the internal specifications are only average

This is an entry-level all-in-on PC. Despite the large screen, the computer has only average specs, so you won't be using this for things like gaming or graphic design.
