This updated LG panel seems to have a slightly higher color accuracy (95% SRGB) according to some reviews. You should definitely expect hitting this Power button by mistake at least for the first week or so. A productive keyboard, ample connectivity, and nearly 10 hours of battery life mean it can serve as a general-purpose PC. The $1,299 Omen model 15-en0029nr that I'm reviewing is, as I noted, on the pricey side if you're purely after graphics-driven performance. It comes in a ‘Shadow Black’ matte colour and honestly looks great. As an Amazon Associate LaptopMedia earns from qualifying purchases.

The panel lacks support for frame-rate-smoothing technologies such as G-Sync or FreeSync, but these are rarely seen outside of much more expensive gaming notebooks. The Omen 15 also does well in connectivity by offering four USB ports (three Type-A and one Type-C, all version 3.2 Gen 1 supporting 5Gbps signaling rates), HDMI 2.0a and mini DisplayPort video outputs, an Ethernet jack, a full-size SD card reader, and an audio combo (headphone/microphone) jack. HP’s Omen gaming PC line received a significant refresh this year as the company pivots to a new design. It comes in a ‘Shadow Black’ matte colour and honestly looks great. Correctly sized for the laptop's 15.6-inch screen, its smooth surface and quiet physical clicks make it more than usable. Bell’s work from home plans extend tentatively to November and b... Telus keeps part of its workforce home until at least 2021. I acknowledged that HP’s 2019 Omen 15 managed to avoid some of the worst traits of a ‘gaming’ product, but that didn’t mean it wasn’t garish. This Omen unit also includes 16GB of dual-channel DDR4-3200 memory, a 512GB solid-state drive with Windows 10 Home, and a one-year warranty. It offers a reasonable amount of performance, looks great and is plenty portable. And we dare say that the best change year on year, is the location and the size of the Arrow keys. Above all, the Omen 15 shows how a gaming notebook can be practical. And while gaming laptops are objectively more portable than a desktop, they still often miss the mark when it comes to the incredible portability of ultra-thin notebooks or 2-in-1 devices like Microsoft’s Surface. 10: We didn’t start the Fyre Festival.

Yes, you read that right, it has a screen with a refresh rate of 300Hz. The Omen 15's 144Hz anti-glare screen is plenty bright and colorful—HP rates it for 300 nits and 72 percent coverage of the NTSC gamut. Despite all the capabilities of the Omen 15, one area that continues to disappoint is battery life. I had hoped that HP made some significant improvements this time around. The rest of the chassis is trim enough, at 14.1 by 9.4 inches. Before, it appeared like the hinge covers are attached to the lid and are connecting within the body, while now, the hinge covers are actually protruding from the body. The Correlated Color Temperature on a white screen is 7300K – colder than the optimal for the sRGB standard of 6500K.

The Bang and Olufsen-tuned sound is surprisingly full and enjoyable. In day-to-day use, the Omen 15 handled the tasks I threw at it without much issue. We use the built-in 1080p benchmarks in Far Cry 5 (at its Normal and Ultra presets) and Rise of the Tomb Raider (at its Medium and Very High presets). Last year, I spent a bit of time with the 2019 HP Omen and, aside from how the laptops look, there doesn’t seem to be a huge difference. It's also devoid of color accents, with branding reduced to subtle Omen lettering and a small reflective square on the lid. Now, the lid indeed opens with a single hand, but we found it to be a bit shaky. You may unsubscribe from the newsletters at any time. That said, the lid does feel a little flimsy as it can wobble often, and quite easily.
