HP Omen Desktop PC review

Although in our minds the HP brand is associated more with office equipment, the American company also produces multimedia devices. And she does it very well. A good example of this is the HP Omen 15-dc1004ur gaming computer, which will be the point of today’s review.

HP Omen Desktop – an advanced gaming device

Real gamers will always say that you need a computer to fully play games, especially if you are a fan of top graphics quality. They believe that the modern computer is far superior to the capabilities of a mobile phone or just a game console. In this regard, the game board partly discusses the components and power needed to run a game smoothly with 4K resolution and virtual reality (VR) support.

HP Omen Desktop is a productive gaming computer that has a unique design and impressive functionality. It is perfect for active gaming on both an amateur and professional level.

The entire OMEN series is the perfect combination of powerful hardware and bright, somewhat aggressive design in the best traditions of gaming PCs. All this applies to this particular model.

Technical characteristics

With HP OMEN you can play at the most powerful settings – the system will not crash even in the most intense situations. Multitask with Windows 10 Home. The processor power and the capacious 16 GB DDR4-2400 SDRAM make it possible to actively work with several resource-intensive applications at once.

The unbeatable symbiosis of the 2.9GHz Intel® Core ™ i7-7820HK processor with GeForce GTX 1080 graphics will take you to victory in no time. All components of the device, regardless of the time and intensity of work behind it, will work efficiently and without errors, thanks to the correct cooling of a well-thought-out ventilation system.

Using the capabilities of a capacious battery and a unique docking station, you can expand the gaming field and change your location, moving from one place to another in the room using a VR backpack.

No extra wires and headphone connection via DTS Headphone: X with 3D sound reproduction will plunge you into a world that was previously only an image on the screen. If one battery is dead, you can replace it with a new one without having to remove the backpack. Two dedicated battery pockets will help you do this quickly and instantly get back into the game again. The straps of the backpack are designed with human anatomy in mind to make carrying the docking station comfortable and safe.


The components of the laptop can be called top-end without a doubt. Their performance will be sufficient 99% of the time. The device is equipped with:

  • Intel Core i7-8750H six-core processor
  • discrete graphics card GeForce RTX 2070 with support for ray tracing in real-time
  • 16 GB of RAM
  • 512GB NVMe SSD with 1TB Hard Drive


The Full HD screen is quite consistent with the flagship level. Its refresh rate reaches 144 Hz, and the response time does not exceed 3 ms. In addition, it faithfully reproduces almost all shades of the sRGB palette. This makes the image clear and realistic. In fast-paced shooters, you will be able to discern every little detail of the intense battle. This will help you to accurately respond to the actions of opponents, instantly make optimal decisions and win confidently in every round. The viewing angles of the display are close to the ideal 178 degrees. Only with a strong deviation will you see yellow and purple hues on it, slightly distorting the picture.
