It looks very good and stylish ,no need to say about bang and olufsen speakers ,splendid screen ,slim ,lighter than other gaming laptops, the keyboard is very good and it's customizable, fast booting ,and the gtx1050ti is sufficient for gaming along with 16gb ram Overall best lappy

The 2019 HP Omen 15 (core i5 9th Gen) is a fantastic bag for the buck laptop. After using this laptop extensively for 3 months, I can truly say that it's price to performance ratio is just perfect and glides through everyday task with absolute ease. - Being a gaming laptop, it's funky styling may not be to everyone's taste, but one can definitely grow to love the well engineered edgy design, which is a real eye catcher out in public if you are into that kind of thing. The keyboard lighting is customizable too unlike other laptops at this price point, with a wife array of colours to choose from. - Coming to PERFORMANCE, it is important to understand that this is more of a base spec gaming laptop and can certainly not perform nearly as well and more expensive gaming laptops. But the new 9th gen processor, coupled the surprisingly powerful Nvdia GTX 1650, handles any game with very stable framerates and smooth enough gameplay. Being a photographer, I use this laptop a lot for editing videos and photos using Photoshop, Premier Pro, Lightroom and Resolve and it handles all of that real smoothly, through 4k videos take a little longer to be processed generally. (One thing to note is the fans, which do not have manual controls for their speeds in the dedicated Omen Control Panel. The only two settings to choose from is (1) 'CONFORT', which turns the fans on all the time to keep CPU and GPU temps at under 45°C, and (2) 'DEFAULT', which only kicks in if the temps pass around 60°C). - *BATTERY LIFE is also pretty decent considering its size, and if the display is set to medium brightness with the fans setting in 'default' mode along with the keyboard backlighting turned off, you can get around 3-4 hours of continuous video playback and around 2-3 hours of intensive tasks like editing photos and videos. - I though gamers might be disappointed with the lack of a 144hz SCREEN*, the 60hz panel this comes with is plenty sufficient and is sufficiently colour accurate. Plus the mat screen mate screen helps to keep reflections at a minimum. - Finally, talking about upgradability, there are 2 2666MHz DDR4 ram slots out of which one has the 8GB Samsung ram stick, a 2.5 inch hard drive and a Nvme M2 Ssd slot supporting upto 512GB.
It's a good product when it's plugged in but when you are using it on battery power it drains faster. Positives - Processing Speed and GPU Negatives - Refresh Rate 60hz, Batterylife
If you are buying this for gaming then look for better battery, because on battery power the graphics are optimized with medium settings. When it is plugged in the settings move to ultra in GeForce panel.
If you have heating issues then try to update the bios in HP assistance. If you cannot find an option to update the bios, then reset the PC once and then update all the settings in HP assistance you can see Bios update there.
If don't update the Bios the system temperature will be around 85 to 90 and fan noise will be horrible. If you update the Bios the temperature will be around 45 - 55
Final opinion, it's better to go with previous model 2018 HP Omen because of the 144hz refresh rate, which offers almost same performance. Don't buy this for gaming alone because the battery life is poor.
Bought this a couple of days ago. Right out of the box the system couldn't detect the Nvidia GPU. I updated the driver etc. But nothing worked. After some time the Nvidia drivers disappeared from the device manager. Trying a clean reinstall if windows now. Hopefully it works. Total pain in the ass.
Just bought it recently and loved it. My editing software works great. Haven't tested any games though because I'm not into gaming much. Softwares like Adobe After Effects, Photoshop, Premiere pro run smoothly and no lag issues .
Temperature gets high at a times but UPDATING THE BIOS fixed the problem.
I bought this laptop and rest is good. But after connecting with wifi its is disconnecting itself I refered this problem with hp they ask me to do number of workouts like disable the driver etc but after all its not working at the end
