No one doubts that HP makes a sincere effort with its gaming laptops, a category it has played in for less than a decade, and the back-to-back improvements made this year to the Omen 16 line have all been worthwhile. The mini LED screen in particular upgrades the visuals considerably, and the sleeker body design undoubtedly gives the Transcend a style edge—but neither of these things improves performance. And, as you'd expect, the mini LED option is only available in the highest-end configurations. Altogether, the Omen Transcend 16 trailed in performance versus similarly priced laptops that were a bit thicker, not to mention one crucial even-thinner model. With that, we gave the HP Omen Transcend 16 the same score we gave its predecessor, and suggest the Alienware x16 R1 for a thin-and-light gaming laptop, or the Lenovo Legion Pro 7i Gen 8 for the best performance at 16 inches.

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.

75.97%: This rating is not earth-shattering. This rating must actually be seen as average, since there are about as many devices with worse ratings as better ones. A purchase recommendation can only be seen with a lot of goodwill, unless it is about websites that generally rate strictly.
