Most Favorable Review

best laptop for its price so far

HP Omen 15-dc0030nr 15.6" FHD IPS GTX 1060 6 GB VRAM i7-8750H 16 GB Memory 1 TB HDD + 128 GB SSD Windows 10 Home Gaming Laptop

Pros: Everything it states, it actually delivers. I have not had a single issue with this laptop. -Battery is great -Playing fortnite is smooth, side for a minor jump or two, but when connected to an ethernet it works great. So it could be my wifi -Keyboard colors are easy to work with -sound is great -its decent weight- and its aesthetically pleasing

Cons: connection speed could be better for wifi, but honestly i don't have any complaints for the price i spent.

Most Critical Review

The hype, but is it really?

Pros: The laptop is beautiful.. aesthetically it is an amazing thing to look at, and the specs are great... -Great to show around -Decent weight -Sturdy -Great sound -Plays games great when its not causing issues.

Cons: Issues happened since day one. Had to return the first one when the fan began to malfunction out and make click noises within just a week of buying it. If you hear the fan giving a strange sound, do not keep it and hope it goes away... i tried to wait it out and nearly missed my opportunity to return it. When i received a new one after having to return the first, it runs great, but i noted a few issues... the ROG program keeps freezing and getting stuck... even getting my colors to work on the keyboard has become problematic... i have to completely shut off my laptop for the issue to fix.. its an error many of these laptops have apparently when i looked it up. i also noticed that my battery craps out less than an hour.. yeah ONE hour of being off the plug. The advertised time is 2-3 hours i believe, so getting a laptop that dies within an hour defeats the purpose of having a laptop... I cannot carry this to places without it dying in an hours time, and that's with low settings... I find it depressing. My brother bought an OMEN and had no issues with it, and its making me regret my decision. I'm trying to see if maybe there is something that can be done to fix the battery life and the program from glitching each time. I will probably call tomorrow. As of now the rating i give this is low until my issue is resolved.

Overall Review: I do not recommend this product as of yet. Maybe i have been getting bad luck, but i hope they can fix my issue... i will be contacting them tomorrow to see if maybe i need a new battery or something. I got this computer back three or four days ago.
