HP Omen 16 Review


Slim, relatively portable build for a 16-inch laptop ; Midrange gaming performance at a reasonable price ; Wide selection of ports including Ethernet

All-AMD configuration outpaced by Intel- and Nvidia-based competitors ; Unimpressive 144Hz refresh rate and full HD resolution ; Mediocre battery life

The HP Omen 16 is a fine gaming laptop without any major flaws, but you can find superior performers in the same price range.

Our HP OMEN 16 gaming laptop review looks at a configurable AMD-powered laptop with a 16-inch 144Hz FHD display and new cooling technology.

Sturdy, relatively slim build quality ; Decent performance ; Larger 16.1-inch screen with 144Hz refresh rate ; Plenty of ports including two USB Type-C ; HDMI 2.1 support ; A few configurations to choose from ; OMEN Tempest Cooling Technology offers...

720p webcam ; Speakers need more oomph ; Slower response rate on FHD model

Personally, I like the style of the HP OMEN 16. Performance is decent as well, and if you want even better performance, there are other processor and graphics card options available as well. Even though this configuration just missed the Highly Rated...

HP Omen 16 Gaming Laptop Review


The Omen 16 is a great gaming laptop with solid build quality and aesthetics. If HP can figure out the configuration and pricing model, I think they'd have a winner.

HP Omen 16 (2021)


The HP Omen 16 2021 is an all-AMD gaming laptop – can it beat Nvidia at its own game, or will this Radeon graphics core struggle to keep up?

Great connectivity and features ; Solid 1080p gaming performance ; Excellent AMD processor ; High-quality, high-resolution screen

AMD graphics can’t compete with Nvidia ; Mediocre build quality ; Keyboard and trackpad disappoint

The HP Omen 16 is a capable and affordable machine for mainstream gaming and work, thanks to its solid all-AMD internals and great screen. However, its GPU is outpaced by Nvidia’s offerings and other machines offer better build quality and ergonomics....

HP Omen 16 review: the best of both worlds


How well does HP juggle value and performance?

Smart Design and build quality ; Good battery life for a gaming laptop ; Solid specs and performance

Can run loud ; Struggles with ray tracing ; No Thunderbolt ports

The HP Omen 16 strikes an interesting middle ground between high-end gaming and general-use laptop. Much like its smart and discreet design, this is a machine that has no problem being used as an everyday streaming and surfing device, work machine, or...

HP Omen 16 review: Performance for a very fair price


A more mature kind of gaming laptop, perfect for those who like to play games but would never wear a Fortnite hoodie out of the house. It is

1440p screen with solid colour ; Good performance for 1080p gaming ; Confidently reserved design

RGB keyboard backlight is a little weak ; Radeon RX6600M lacks a few neat advanced features ; Noticeable display backlight bleed in our review sample

A more mature kind of gaming laptop, perfect for those who like to play games but would never wear a Fortnite hoodie out of the house. It is well-specced for 1080p play, although some of you might want to consider the step-up Nvidia RTX 3060 version...

HP Omen 16 review: An affordable all-AMD gaming laptop


AMD's new entry-level gaming GPU goes head to head with Nvidia's RTX3060

Quality 165Hz, 1440p display ; Good performance for the money ; Decent sound system

No DLSS upscaling ; No numeric keypad ; Mediocre battery life

Putting the AMD GPU to one side for a moment, the entry-level HP Omen 16 is a thoroughly recommendable machine. The 16.1in display is undoubtedly the star of the show but the sound system deserves a mention in dispatches, too. The Omen is also a...
