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 design,...

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

 

Gaming laptops have little reason to envy their desktop counterparts anymore, and the HP Omen 17 ($1,299 starting, $1,799 as reviewed) shows why. This beastly notebook's Nvidia GTX 1070 graphics card and Intel Core i7 processor allow it to handle...

HP OMEN 17 Review

 

For a gaming laptop, the HP OMEN 17 delivers plenty of bang for its buck, with a vibrant 4K display, impressive gaming performance and even VR capability. But there's more to it than just a speedy graphics card. Thanks to a potent processor, a speedy...

The HP OMEN 17 has serious gaming chops, and it’s VR-ready thanks to an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 graphics card.

Battery life doesn’t top four hours, and it’s even shorter when gaming.

The HP OMEN 17 is a good looking gaming laptop with undeniable graphics muscle, delivering high-end visuals and VR capability.

HP Omen 17: An affordable gaming-caliber laptop almost worth buying

 

You have to make compromises to get to this price point, but HP makes too many.

Before I noticed and recognized the Gsync issue, I otherwise enjoyed my time with the HP Omen 17, mostly because I used an external mouse and keyboard. I used the laptop to work on reviews and follow-up looks at this season's big PC games without...

HP’s OMEN 17 is an epic gaming laptop that needs just a tweak or two

 

HP Inc. isn't a name that comes to mind when you think of “enthusiast PC gaming system,” but the more endearing folks at HP think that recent tweaks made to OMEN gaming brand can change brand perception in the eyes of PC gamers, like myself

By all means, if you have no reservations about the size and weight that a GTX 1070-equipped, 17-inch laptop provides, then take aim at the OMEN 17.

HP Omen 17 Review and Ratings

 

A rare component-by-component value among "Pascal" laptops, the Omen 17 is aggressively priced and swift. We'd like to see just two key things tweaked.

Less expensive than most GTX 1070 notebooks, at this writing ; Beautiful 4K display with G-Sync support ; Solid performance ; Cool and quiet while gaming ; Intel RealSense camera

Plastic build ; Subpar touch pad ; Shallow keyboard ; GTX 1070 can't hack 4K resolution in leading games at extreme detail levels ; No USB Type-C ports

HP has a solid entry into the high-end gaming notebook market with the new Omen 17. This 17.3-incher has excellent gaming performance, and it cranks your game frames with minimal heat and noise. Its revised cooling system is well-equipped to handle its...

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: 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
