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

 

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 Review

 

Now this is a good Omen. HP's latest entry in its Omen line of laptops gives the 17-inch gaming machine a drastic, yet welcome redesign. Instead of playing it safe, the Omen 17 sports a daring look that's sure to turn heads. And the shock and awe...

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...

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...
