Rated 3 out of 5 by Pami from Son's college computer He needed a computer with specific specs so I had to order directly through HP. The computer is fine, but it is very heavy. It would be too heavy for me or my girls to carry around all day, but he's a big strong guy so it's okay for him. The battery life is horrible for a brand new computer. I've had lots of HP laptops and this one is the worst by far.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jeff N from Great laptop - for gaming and more I bought this for a middle schooler to use for school and gaming. It may seem like overkill for school, and I had gone the 'cheap laptop' route in the past for our older child, and the frustration of having an underpowered computer for school made me realize this was a bad approach. The new Omen is awesome and is super fast and responsive, which makes school zoom and other computer work for a coding class and other classes be much less frustrating. And because she has a great gaming PC now, she isn't taking mine from me. The product was easy to set up, is very responsive (as expected), and the large screen means that I didn't have to buy an external monitor to pair with it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Mr R from I thought it would at least have the same features Not as good features as older Omen. I bought it because my old Omen had the dvd, more usb ports. Now I have to use a port when I need the dvd.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TIFLA from Computer Rocks! This is a rockstar of a computer. Sturdy, fast and ready to perform heavy graphics and video editing. A gaming computer with processing power ideal for multitasking between programs and while managing large files. It is meeting my expectations and then some.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DonKool from Works Great and Looks Great - Very Fast! I'm really enjoying my HP OMEN Laptop. Love the red keyboard. Ii did find out that the lower models have an RGB keyboard so to that you can customize the key colors. Disappointed that the top model didn't include that. Other than that I love it. Easy to type on and blazing fast. Haven't tested the battery too much. As it is a 17" computer I generally leave it plugged in all the time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mama Jo from Fast Laptop - Perfect For Business I love this laptop. I don't love that it only comes with red backlight and no CD drive, but other than that it is perfect. Fast, sturdy (it is heavy!), fits perfectly into my laptop bag. Does everything I need it to do... I always have a million and 1 tabs and programs open, and I have NO issues with speed and crashes. I've had it about a month or so, and couldn't be happier!

Rated 2 out of 5 by dalepres from Loud fan noise makes this useless for any audio I really want to love this laptop but I have real concerns. Normally, the GPU and CPU idle at about 39 degrees Celsius at 0% to 2% CPU utilization. But under any load, even just 10% CPU utilization, the CPU jumps into the 70s Celsius. GPU temp stays pretty low. I hate to imagine what will happen when I put a real load, even just 50 or more percent CPU utilization. Just sitting here doing nearly nothing at all, with 12% CPU utilization, the fans sound like a server room. In fact, my dual-xeon workstation runs dead silent; this laptop is the loudest thing in the room. I can't hear the TV and you can completely forget about listening to music from this. In fact, I've talked myself out of the 4 stars and now it's between 2 and 3 stars because a laptop should be virtually silent. In fact; I think I am going to contact support about returning or replacing this. Yes... 2 stars... and if this irritating fan noise doesn't go away, it might even be 1. That's too bad for a guy who's almost exclusively bought HP laptops for the past 25 years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Isom105 from Omen is the best! Good as a desktop. The red light is perfect. It’s not as heavy as I thought it would be.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Stuart512 from Very fast and great display I purchased this 17" Omen laptop as a replacement for a desktop with dual processors (8 cores) and server hard drives (15k rpm). This laptop boots faster and can render video files at 2 to 3 times faster than the desktop. I love the speed of the NVMe drive. Having a secondary 1tb drive eliminates the problem of running out of room on the 512 of NVMe drive. The HD screen is very crisp and clear. I would recommend this computer to anyone looking for a powerful laptop.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Tim O from Great Computer I love the computer. It's slightly bulkier than expected, but that's to be expected with a 17 inch gaming laptop. Regardless, the computer has great specs and runs all of my games at max settings. It also plays my Oculus Rift seamlessly. The computer was a replacement for another HP omen-15 I had purchased and the keyboard died on me shortly after purchase. The return process and customer support was phenomenal. I honestly decided to stick it out with HP for this reason alone.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Zeves from Solid performer The laptop is pretty solid for the price. I wish I would have held out for a 30 series graphics card, but the 2060 is performing very well for most things. I use this laptop for designing in Autocad, Cura and design works. I also use this laptop for PCVR including Half-Life Alex, and I use this PC for playing games such as Warzone. I was a little disappointed that I couldn't max out the graphics settings on Warzone with this beast, but it comes pretty close. Overall a decent computer. My only real complaint is my experience with trying to get ahold of customer service in a timely manner.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Matthews Dad from Omen good for college work and gaming fun. Purchased this for my son - in his first year of college. So far it works well for his classes and for this gaming activities. It replaces a standard type laptop that had less of all things that make a laptop fast. So, as expected, it blew away the prior machine. His gaming friends have a mix of machines and this one is performing in the top 25% of them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Goddess of Reign from Beautiful graphics! Runs all video games. The graphics are fantastic and even watching Netflix it's noticeable. I can now play games I've had on Steam for a while now that were unplayable before. Great gaming laptop! There should be instructions for turning on the keyboard lights though.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Mike from Ma from Awesome laptop, but ... Great machine hardware wise, but lacks a few things (for me). The keyboard (red) color cant be changed. Its stated, but I guess I just missed it while buying it. It would be nice to just change it to white, the red looks awesome from across the room, but its distracting when actually using it. The other beef is the speaker volume is to low. When I saw "Bang and Olufsen" listed in the specs, (once again, I assumed) it would have awesome sound, and it does, but the speaker output volume is just to low. I have to leave it on 100% almost all the time, and I still strain to hear it volume wise. Thats it, beside those complaints above, a really good machine.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Hollace41 from So far my son loves the laptop. I am just disappointed that after being on the phone with Hp for about 30 minutes no one could tell me what type of security cable works for this Omen. Since the gentleman on the phone didn't know the answer, tech support was to email me the info. 6 days later still no email. Glad I purchased theft insurance.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Eerie from Great gaming laptop Bought this to replace my Asus ROG751 that I've been using for the past 6 years. Wanted a newer generation of gaming laptop and was recommended by multiple people. I play all the latest games on ultra-high or maxed out graphic settings with 0 graphics lag. My only real complaints is the 512GB SSD fills up fast and the fan is quite noisy but with the volume turned up, it drowns out the sound of the fans.

If say your wife was sitting in the other side of a silent living room and you started playing a game, would the fan ramp up loud enough for her to yell at you? How quiet would you say this is? Library quiet? How much does the fan ramp up under a load?

Asked by: Graveyard Gus
Hi Gus and thanks for your question! The HP Omen Laptop features HP Omen Tempest Cooling. This provides three-sided venting and five-way airflow are engineered to maximize performance and keep your system cool even when gameplay heats up. As far as the actual noise level I would recommend contacting HP Support for help answering the actual noise level of the fans.

Can the 7200 TPM hard drive be replaced with another Solid State Drive for longer battery life and better performance?? Is that an option from HP? Or does it have to be done after market?  Does that create any problems or any challenges??

Asked by: mscot1
Thanks for your question! Upgrading the hard drive must be done via the aftermarket. If the hard drive isn't installed by an HP Authorized Service center then this could void the warranty on the Omen Laptop.
