HP Omen 15 AX250WM Review – A Gaming Laptop For Everyone

HP Omen is everything you will expect for an affordable gaming machine. It’s capable on playing most of AAA games in 1080p resolution in such a great performance. That thing is possible thanks to its Intel I7 processor and NVIDIA GTX 1050 TI. These specifications are common thing to find on the high end laptop, but finding it on the price range for under 900 dollars is very not common. HP tried to push their budget into the maximum as they could put high end specifications without too many things to sacrifice.

If you are searching for decent machine to play game, then you probably need to take look at closely. I have decided to make a review about it since many people are talking about it almost the entire year. Do you think the device is really that worth to buy? You are going to find it soon.

We are going to talk about it further on this article, so you could make consideration about it. To make it easier for you to understand, let’s we jump into the article.

Sleek And Light Design

The design is actually feels so good and unique at the same time. They use of combinations of soft touch and carbon fiber material in such a good way. It feels nice and soft when I touch it and I do not have mind on spending my time with it. The red logo is placed at the center lid and looks sleek. The color combinations are great and I would give them my five stars on this case.

When it’s the time to open the lid, I was quite happy to see that the deck is nice with black finishing that combined with faux carbon pattern. The power button sits steadily on the top left corner waiting for you to activate it. The two chunks of hinge on the both sides keep it steady and it’s strong enough. The build quality is nice and the company really put their hard work on making the improvement.

Display And Keyboard

Omen 15 2The display somehow colorful and making an enormous color reproduction. I just not too prefer its brightness level that good enough to use in outdoor activity although the level is not that great in comparable with the STRIX or VX 15. I am not that surprised on this case since the price is really talking here. The experience is still smooth and nice, so you should not worry.

As for the keyboard, I got the mixed result with its performance. The keyboard is too shallow and has lack of feedback when you touch it. I just hope it offers me better clickiness as sometimes I use it for editing my document. You are going to find some problems on fast typing, but not in gaming. I have played of Counter Strike for some hours with my mouse and enjoy it a lot.

Good On Gaming, But Only In Medium Setting

Yeah, most gaming only runs in stable performance in medium setting. I guess it’s still okay since most people will still enjoy it since the graphic is not that bad to enjoy. The game like Mass Effect Andromeda runs at 30-40 FPS in many situations and the framerate will still stable at below 30 as you play the game. The result is even better when I tested of Rise of The Tomb Raider. This game is actually already old and even playable on XBOX 360. I raised the setting into the high with anti-aliasing and got that its playable at all. I got like 40 FPS on majority locations on some chapters on the game. The 60 FPS is still possible only if you play with setting and reduce it into the minimum.

For the battery life, you will get the battery life for around 10 hours or more on surfing through the web. On playing games, the result would be reduced to the 6 hours and 30 minutes or more depending on the game and setting you put. In my opinion, it’s still impressive and not far behind with VX 15 or MSI 7REX.
