Reviews for the HP Omen 15-5001na

70% HP Omen
Source: Laptop Mag English
The HP Omen is a good gaming laptop for the price, but it's not quite great. For $1,029, gamers get a moderately attractive notebook that offers fairly strong performance. Where the laptop really shines is its almost 7 hours of battery life. However, for $999, you can get the Asus ROG GL552, which offers a sleeker design, a more colorful screen, a speedier SSD and better overall performance.

70% A nicely built, stylish and speedy gaming laptop

The shiny touchscreen is a pointless ostentation raising price and weight besides sapping power, and network connectivity is limited. Otherwise the HP Omen 15 is a nicely built, stylish and speedy gaming laptop.

Whether you’re a CS:GO type or a WarCraft junkie, having a few programmable keys by your left hand is a feature you’re going to miss the next time you play on different machine. As we mentioned earlier, we're less impressed by the Omen 15's extra-wide trackpad, as we're not likely to use it, but we can see the appeal for various applications and usage models.

80% the First Gaming Notebook from HP
Source: Digital Versus English
For a first gaming laptop, this is a high quality product from HP. On top of its striking chassis and decent screen, its configuration is good enough to support a wide variety of games in the screen's native resolution. The main downsides are the quality of the speakers and the rather feeble battery life, which make its price seem a little ambitious. You'll find better alternatives in the same price range from HP's competitors.

The Omen 15 has all the ingredients of a gaming laptop evolved for modern times. It's thin, lightweight, and packed with powerful components in every corner, from its "Haswell" processor and "Maxwell" GPU to its stacks of RAM and PCIe-based SSD. Our only real complaint with the configuration is that HP doesn't offer a GPU upgrade—we're already dreaming of this machine with a GTX 970M option.

The HP Omen is easily the best-looking laptop of the year, combining a tempting design with a healthy dose of gaming might. However, at $2,099, the Omen's keyboard could use some work, and its speakers a little more oomph. For $400 less, the MSI GS60 Ghost delivers on all fronts, has comparable performance and is lighter.

We're shocked and thrilled that HP has returned to the gaming laptop scene with one of the most attractive, thin and light 15" machines on the market. The look and build quality are Voodoo level boutique. The 1080p touchscreen makes working in Windows 8.1 and touch-aware games like Civ V enjoyable, though glare is an issue.

With its midrange price, the HP Omen 15 pits itself against some potent competitors. While it easily outstrips the entry-level gaming rigs from other mainstream manufacturers, like Acer and Lenovo, this model is priced to compete with systems from gaming specialists, like Digital Storm and Maingear. In that comparison, the Omen 15 does fairly well, with solid performance and a gamer-friendly design. But more expensive systems from boutique vendors still win the day, thanks to better gaming performance.

Source: CNet English
Anyone counting HP out of the picture over the past year or two is going to be surprised by how well the high-end Omen comes together. It's especially gratifying to see a decent gaming machine come from HP after the company failed to capitalize on buying the well-liked Voodoo PC gaming company back in 2006.

The Omen may not be the most powerful notebook out there, but it’s extremely polished and well-designed. Everything from its looks, portability, and thermals are top notch. While our decked-out unit cost $2,100, if you’re looking for a more affordable configuration, we recommend going with the $1,800 model, which includes a 512GB SSD, 8GB of RAM, and an 860M with 2GB of VRAM. It’s still a pretty good Omen.

80% HP Omen Review: Voodoo DNA brings grace and style to gaming laptops
Source: PC World English
Overall HP's new gaming laptop is one worthy of the Omen name. It offers bags of style and reasonable gaming performance in a thin and fairly cool chassis. Decked out with the larger 4GB of GPU RAM, 16GB of RAM and 512GB of SSD storage, it's even reasonably priced at $2,100 compared to other notebooks in its class.

In our tests, the HP Omen 15 proves itself as a decent option for gamers yearning to be different from the throng buying Alienware, Razer, and the like. There are still some things HP could do to improve the machine, with a better battery life and a screen with less noticeable flicker, but if you’re stuck to the desk and are lucky enough not to see the refresh rate issues (or consequently, if HP fixes them), the Omen is definitely a machine worth taking a look at.

Comment

Model: Slim yet powerful, the HP Omen 15 not only packs a lot of powerful hardware as a "Gaming" laptop, but looks awesome to boot. Right out of the box, the sleek black aluminum cover with splashes of red is a classic combination that looks gorgeous on the Omen 15. At under 2 cm thick, the Omen 15 is definitely one of the thinner laptops made as a desktop replacement. Its weight of 2.1 kg allows it to be portable without being back breaking.

The display is a cool 15.6 inch with 1920 x 1080 resolution LED backlit touch screen, which works great with the bundled Windows 8.1 OS. When it comes to gaming laptops, the hardware takes priority over looks, and the Omen 15 doesn't disappoint. It comes with a powerful combo of Intel i7 processors and top of the line Nvidia GTX 860M graphics card that is meant to run the most beautiful games the market has to offer.

The 8GB RAM is decent, though it is recommended to upgrade to 16 GB or higher. The Omen comes with 2 separate speakers at the front that compliments gaming with its immersive surround sound. It also comes with a 256 GB Solid State Drive, which loads data much faster compared to conventional hard disk.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 860M: Upper mid-range graphics card from the GeForce GTX 800M series.

With these GPUs you are able to play modern and demanding games fluently at medium detail settings and HD resolution.

Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  

4710HQ: Haswell-based quad-core processor clocked at 2.5 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 3.5 GHz. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 4600 GPU and a dual channel DDR3 memory controller.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.

15.6":

15-16 inch is a standard display size for laptops and offers the biggest variety of products.
