HP Omen 15 Review- Best Gaming Laptop Refresh

What’s up, everybody? Today I want to share with you my experience of the Ohman 15 gaming laptop when I first saw the pictures earlier this year.

I was really dig in the redesign. Couldn’t wait to check it out. So I’ve been using this for about a week. So let me tell you everything that you need to know if you’re thinking about picking one of these up. If you’re into unboxing, that’s a simple and clean box.

You get some paperwork and some warranty info. You get the 200 watt power break.

I like the rounded design. And of course, you get the laptop itself. Here are the specs of the review unit I have here. I have the tenth generation until I seven model, 16 gigabytes of RAM and an Invidia 2060 for you.

And the display is a 10 ATP three hundred hertz panel. Don’t worry, there are amd the options. I know AMD is kicking a lot of but right now. But for graphics it looks like the 16 60 t’ai is the highest option available. Where would the intel models. You can go up to a 20 70 super.

So keep that in mind if you want the best graphics performance you’re going to have to go into. So let’s start with the hardware.

I really like the minimal look on this redesign and it doesn’t screen gamer laptop, which I appreciate. It’s a matte finish with the new Ohman logo.

This doesn’t light up or anything, but I dig the way that it looks. It’s a combo build. So the top lid portion is plastic and the bottom plate cover is plastic, but the rest is made of metal, so it helps keep it rigid.

So while there is flex on the screen, the keyboard and palm rest feel more robust when it’s closed.

You’ll see that there’s a gap and you can feel the screen flex here and also you can feel it push down on the back. But for those of you that are concerned about this being an issue, I haven’t had any problems with it since.

The screen is not glass. I don’t see it getting damaged at all. And for people that are using this as their only gaming computer and playing on a monitor in clamshell fashion, this gap does allow for better airflow, which makes cooling better, which we will talk about a little bit later.

Plenty of ports here on the left, you have a power port, Ethernet, USP, full size HDMI 2.0, a headphone jack and a full size SD card slot, which is awesome for creators.

Thunderbolt three port on the other side, but you can’t charge with this port. I tried mini display port and two more USV ports to round things out.

The keyboard I have is a four zone RGV, but it is a twenty dollar option to get this and I highly recommend it. The precision trackpad is nice and responsive. And while it’s not the biggest trackpad, I feel like it’s big enough.

The keyboard has plenty of travel and I think a lot of people will be OK with it.

It’s a little mushy for my liking, but it definitely does the job. There is a web cam on the front, which is nice, but I wish there was support for Windows. Hello. That’s my favorite way to sign into a laptop, so hopefully they can add this in the future.

The display is a really nice one. This is a three hundred hertz matte eyepiece panel. I can’t speak on the other display area, but this one is fantastic with nice color accuracy and good viewing angles.

Three hundred hertz is probably overkill, especially with the graphics options that are available, but it makes the gaming experience really smooth. So I highly recommend you upgrading the panel if you have the extra budget.

So let’s get to what you want to know. If you’re into Benchmark’s, here is the Geek Bench five C.P.U score and here is the geek bench compute score. So the twenty 60 does very well here.

Here is the Cinnabon score as well. You can see this is a capable laptop. I have a 512 gigabyte SSD and here are the read and write speeds that might not be enough storage for some of you.

So you can just configure one with a bigger drive or you can upgraded yourself down the line. There’s also an option for a two MDMA rate, zero setup.

So you do have choices. Next, let’s talk about gaming performance. It’s very solid. I like to test Shadow of the Tomb Raider because I feel like this is a great starting point.

Playing this game on the Ohman fifteen is a solid experience. I ran the benchmark on the highest settings and is still getting 80 frames per second average, which is really great.

Would do maternal. I’m getting over 120 frames per second dipping at its lowest around 100. This is a really solid experience on Ultra that 2016 can’t go beyond this setting. But this is very enjoyable on the Ohman fifteen. Last but not least, if you are a call of duty warzone fan, then you will get decent gaming experience on this as well. Here are some of the metrics that I was getting.

I really need to put some more time into this game, but I know once I get into it, I’m not getting out. So I’m trying to be careful when it comes to power.

You do have options through the Ohman command center. When I’m gaming, I use the performance setting. This setting will push the laptop to his limits so the fans will get louder and the laptop will run hotter.

But let me say, I’m really impressed with the cooling system. The fans are large and move a lot of air and the system is robust. So it does cool the system properly.

If you want your experience to be a little quieter, you can use the balance mode. I think a lot of people like this mode.

There is one thing about the fan. It is constantly running.

There’s no way to turn it off completely. You can feel airflow coming out. You put your hands near the laptop and it is on right now is slightly audible. Can you hear it? I mean, it is minor, but it didn’t bother me. But that is something that you need to know about.

So the last thing I wanna talk about is battery life. This has a seventy point nine what hour battery.

I wish the battery was a little bit bigger in this model. I was getting about three hours before he was dying. I would like to see it pushed to four. That would be a little bit better. But a lot of people are just gonna have this plugged in any way when they game to get the maximum performance.

So I’m not sure how much that matters to you. But I’ve definitely seen better battery life on gaming laptops. So overall, I think this is a really solid refresh.

I think Olman is going in the right direction with their laptops. The redesign is clean and minimal, which I appreciate. There are plenty of power choices. And even though that the fans are a little louder, it does cool the laptop properly, which is a big deal for maximum performance.

The Bangin Ohlson speaker system is decent, but the two speakers are actually at the bottom. I always think that the grill is a part of the speaker system, but it’s not.

It’s for airflow. So I would love to see them put a little bit more emphasis on the external audio. But I think if you’re looking for a solid gaming laptop at a competitive price, I think the Ohman 15 is a great choice. I think you’re gonna be impressed.

Let me know what you think about the Ohman fifteen gaming laptop in the comment section below where if you have any questions about it, ask me there and I’ll do my best to answer them.

I’ll leave a link down below so you can play with the configuration.
