The HP Omen 14 boasts a visually stunning design with a sleek and compact form factor. Unlike many gaming laptops that flaunt aggressive logos, the HP Omen takes a minimal approach, with just the word “OMEN” on the back.

However, the LED lights on the keyboard add a touch of gamer flair when turned on. Made of metal, the laptop feels sturdy and durable and weighs 1.6 kg. The hinge mechanism is robust and the cooling system effectively dissipates heat, ensuring comfortable gaming sessions.

The Omen 14's keyboard features multi-color LED lighting, which enhances its visual appeal. While the keys offer a satisfying typing experience, they can feel a little mushy compared to other gaming laptops. Regardless, the keyboard remains perfectly serviceable for gaming and everyday tasks.

The trackpad is wide and responsive, though it lacks the premium feel of a laptop costing north of Rs. 1.5 l.

The highlight of the HP Omen 14 is its OLED display, which features vibrant colors and HDR support. With a resolution of 2880 × 1800 and a refresh rate of 120 Hz, it offers smooth and immersive images for gaming and multimedia consumption. However, it lacks support for variable refresh rates, which may disappoint some players.

Bottom firing speakers deliver clear sound. However, they lack depth and richness, resulting in a disappointing experience across various types of media, including movies, games, and music.

In terms of connectivity, the laptop offers a decent selection of ports, including HDMI 2.1 and Thunderbolt 4 for external displays and peripherals.

While it lacks an SD card reader or Ethernet connector, it makes up for it with Wi-Fi 7 and Bluetooth 5.4 for fast and reliable wireless connectivity.

The HP Omen Transcend 14 we had equipped with an Intel Core Ultra 7 155H processor, belonging to the latest line of Intel Meteor Lake.

These new processors prioritize power efficiency over raw performance, resulting in a noticeable balance rather than a significant jump in performance. Additionally, the laptop featured Nvidia GeForce RTX 4060 graphics, which are the successor to the RTX 4050.

While the laptop doesn't have the best of the new Intel Core Ultra SoCs, it still packs a punch. The Intel Core Ultra 7 155H is decent enough for all kinds of tasks and even some heavy games.

In my personal experience, playing games like God Of War on the HP Omen Transcend 14 was smooth with no noticeable drop in frame rates.

Designed for portability, the Omen Transcend 14 is a great choice for gamers on the go.

However, it is worth noting that the laptop tends to heat up during gaming sessions. Fortunately, the built-in fans kick in quickly to dissipate the heat, ensuring the keyboard remains comfortable to use.

As we all know, gaming laptops often struggle when it comes to the battery life department.

While non-gaming laptops can usually handle several hours of continuous use, gaming laptops often fall short. The same goes for the Omen 14.

Since you're gaming heavily, you can't expect more than two to two and a half hours of battery life during gaming sessions.

The HP Omen Transcend 14 stands out for combining gaming performance with a sleek design and solid build quality.

While its keyboard and battery life may not be the best in its class, its vibrant OLED display and compact form factor make it an attractive choice for gamers looking for style and portability. Overall, the HP Omen 14 stands out as a versatile gaming laptop that doesn't compromise on aesthetics or performance.
