HP OMEN 17 in-depth review

HP's first attempt in gaming laptops a few years ago didn't go too well. The first Omen wasn't received so well by the users because it didn't offer anything out of the ordinary, yet it cost a pretty penny. Now, the HP Omen 17 with GTX 1070 is in the same ballpark as the ASUS ROG Strix GL702VS and Acer's Predator 17. However, both are hard to match rivals and the Omen 17 has a hard time keeping up.

  • Fairly portable compared to some competitors
  • Good IPS screen with G-Sync and 75Hz refresh rate
  • The screen doesn't use PWM across all brightness levels
  • Effective and stable cooling solution (with some small exceptions)
  • Decent battery life for a 17-inch gaming laptop


  • Flimsy lid and unconvicing choice of materials
  • Cheap touchpad, shallow and not gaming-oriented keyboard
  • No USB-C connector, no Thunderbolt 3 support
  • The cooling fans are a bit loud during load
