Last year was pivotal for the relationship between the manufacturers and the users. In the gaming industry, we saw a huge outburst of first-party software, which offers some sort of hardware customization – like preset performance profiles or even overclocking. Well, props to HP for going the extra mile, and providing you with arguably the most important “enthusiast” laptop feature – undervolting. We have not yet tested the limits of this feature, but we found out that the software is pretty lenient – of course, they would want to be sure you don’t cook up your brand new device. Nevertheless, we have to mention that the cooling is more than capable of running the 80W RTX 3050 Ti. It would be great if HP has put the facilities for a higher TGP so that they can increase it via a firmware update. At least for now, we have no information about any intentions from HP to do so. HP Omen 16 (16-b000)’s 16.1-inch IPS panel has a Full HD resolution, decent contrast ratio, and comfortable viewing angles. Furthermore, its backlight doesn’t use PWM for brightness adjustment, and it fully covers the sRGB color gamut.

Sticking with this sample configuration and looking at the broader market, the HP Omen 16 is currently not priced very well. Acer's Predator is $1,300 and the MSI Creator 15 comes with a 4K display and is $1,450. Even HP's own Omen 17 is also available for $1,450. The $1,650 asking price for the Omen 16 just isn't in the same ballpark. Bottom line, the Omen 16 is a great laptop with solid build quality and aesthetics, but it's not priced competitively, at least as of writing this review. I enjoyed reviewing it, and could see myself using it as my personal laptop. If HP can figure out the configuration and pricing model, I think they'd have a winner.

15-inch display variants are the standard and are used for more than half of all laptops.
The reason for the popularity of mid-sized displays is that this size is reasonably easy on the eyes, often allows high resolutions and thus offers rich details on the screen, yet does not consume too much power and the devices can still be reasonably compact - simply the standard compromise.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
