Reviews for the HP Victus 16-r0000ng
Source: Laptop Mag
The HP Victus 16 is a super fun affordable gaming laptop that I would recommend to entry-level and even some mid-tier gamers. Its Core i7 CPU and Nvidia 4050 GPU can handle most of the triple-A games you will find yourself playing. I know through this review I used the term “solid” often because, like a faithful first car, that’s what the Victus is: solid, dependable, and fun to game with. Although the display may not be the brightest in outdoor lighting situations, it's perfectly fine indoors. The FHD (1920 x 1080) display is colorful, sharp, and renders games without noticeable tearing or lag. I would totally recommend the HP Victus 16; it's fun, it's elegant and it's got all the moxy you need to enjoy gaming.

The HP Victus 16 straddles the fence between entry-level and midrange gaming. On one hand, its performance is effective, especially in our CPU tests, and it combines plenty of storage with decent battery life. On the other, the HP's price puts it close to more fully featured and better-performing systems rather than economy models. Laptop build quality and design are acceptable but not thrilling as you creep toward $1,500, and the 60Hz screen is a real miss for a gaming laptop at nearly any price in 2023. If you can find our test configuration for the $1,199.99 sale price seen at press time, it's more compelling, but as configured it's not the best value. At a glance, we'd suggest the Victus 16 setup with Core i7 CPU, GeForce RTX 4060 graphics, and 165Hz display at $1,569.99 (discounted to $1,319.99 at this writing).

This range for display formats was and is a rarity. It is larger than the general standard of 15 inches, but not yet in the range of large workstations. One usually has higher screen resolutions available, but portability suffers from that.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.

75%: This rating is poor. More than three quarters of the models are rated better. That is rather not a purchase recommendation. Even if verbal ratings in this area do not sound that bad ("sufficient" or "satisfactory"), they are usually euphemisms that disguise a classification as a below-average laptop.
