Reviews for the HP Victus 16-d0097nr
Overall, the HP Victus 16 sits comfortably between barebones budget laptops and mid to high-tier gaming laptops with all the bells and whistles. The model we tested is a good value, but the Victus 16 with a Ryzen 7 processor and RTX 3050 Ti graphics card should offer comparable performance and is $150 cheaper when on sale (at the time of writing this article, it’s currently on sale for $1,049.99 at the HP store). If you need a laptop you know can run 3D modeling or rendering software lag-free and the latest game titles at smooth frame rates, but you don’t want to spend a fortune, this is the laptop to pay attention to.

The HP Victus 16 is a solid gaming laptop with a ton of perks, including decent performance, a pretty display, a comfortable keyboard and a clean design. However, it’s hard to look past its crappy SSD and below average battery life. I recommend shelling out a few extra bucks for the Triton 300 SE, which’ll net you longer battery life and a much faster SSD. Of course, you won’t get the Victus’ big, bright display. The Victus is a solid choice if you can overlook some of its glaring issues, but ultimately, you might want to consider a different storage solution.

HP’s Victus 16 clearly offers substantial value as a budget gaming notebook. The price tag is worth applauding, especially with supply-chain woes gnawing at profit margins and availability. However, HP clearly sacrificed some of the bling of rival notebooks to deliver a no-nonsense gaming PC for users who care about what’s on the screen rather than under their fingers. Laptops that can do dual duty for work and play are worth highlighting, too. To be fair, we’d probably award the Victus 16 an Editor’s Choice award if not for the substantial contributions of the Asus ROG Strix G15 Advantage Edition and Acer Predator Triton 500 SE, both of which deliver spectacular performance and a higher- resolution screen with better refresh rates. Yet both notebooks also cost a few hundreds of dollars more. If that matters, the Victus 16 is a more budget-friendly option. Of these notebooks we’ve tested, we think it’s fair to say we’d recommend the ROG Strix G15, the Triton 500SE, and the Victus 16. While the Victus 16 may not be your first choice for a gaming notebook, we still think it’s a good choice nevertheless.

The Victus 16 is a good-looking notebook with an appealing screen size and a wide range of configuration options and prices, from very low to not too high. Both its eight-core CPU and GeForce GPU are fine performers. But it lacks biometrics and a Thunderbolt port, and its display hinge and touchpad are low-quality. Frankly, we liked HP's outgoing Pavilion Gaming laptops better. For now, you're better off sticking with a competing 15.6-inch gaming laptop like the Predator Triton 300 SE.
