HP Omen 16 review: Performance for a fair price

Less out-and-out 'gamer' looking, the Omen is akin to a more powerful HP Envy - which we rather like. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
The 1440p display is a decent resolution, but we had some issues with light bleed which, for us, held this screen back from being better. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
A four-zone RGB lighting structure under the keyboard isn't as advanced as per-key illumination, but it still looks pretty great. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
HP's chosen a plastic-topped trackpad, which isn't the best in the business, but hey, this is all about value - and you should be using a gaming mouse anyway. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
The Omen 16 is a solid fit for 1080p gaming. However, our review unit has an AMD Radeon RX 6600M GPU, which isn't quite as effective as the Nvidia RTX 3060. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
