Cheapest HP Omen Gaming discounts, deals & offers on sale
Anyone able to comment on below being a good deal for a refurb? Would get a further £50 off today .. https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F173638483155
Apart from the battery life being significantly better on the pavilion , all depends on what matters to you most though I guess. Customer Service plays a big part for me which is probably why the Pavilion gets my vote over this. Everybody values things differently though I guess. Now you have mentioned different zones of colours on the keyboard though, I feel a teeny weeny bit less chuffed with the Pavilion , thanks for that (y) XD
The main difference between the Omen and the Pavilion gaming laptop is the Omen has 4 separate backlit keyboard zones with different led colours. Ill be happy if it plays the Command & Conquer remasters :)
Without a doubt the Currys deal is better. Same price for 2gb extra ddr5 and an i5 8300cpu which is quite a bit better than a 7300hq and even slightly better than a 7700hq. I would then buy a cheap £20-40 ssd when funds allow.
Would the Acer Nitro 5 be a better choice? For the same price you get an i5-8300h and 4GB GTX 1050. The downside is that it's HDD only. There's negative reviews but these seem to be for the 7300 model https://www.currys.co.uk/gbuk/computing/laptops/laptops/acer-nitro-5-15-6-intel-core-i5-gtx-1050-gaming-laptop-1-tb-hdd-10181374-pdt.html
I had it delivered to my brothers address, because we both bought the same one, annoyingly he won't be home till late so will pick it up tomorrow hopefully after work and will check it then. Have a look at https://www.notebookcheck.net/HP-Omen-17t-i7-8750H-GTX-1070-Laptop-Review.323450.0.html if you haven't already done so. Heres me hoping that fresh out the box it runs as it should lol.
Have you received it yet? Any power or thermal throttling?
Also, new bios update for the Omen too which resolves issues. I opted for 17" because of work needs. I think If you're after more gaming features that msi provides then msi might be the choice, but I think for price and specs and build quality the HP won me over more storage space too.
Yeah, I was stuck between this and the gp73, this was cheaper got the Gsync and from the video reviews I've seen it seems overall better build quality and durable. Some have said this 17inch suffers, as opposed to the 15", from light bleed but perhaps faulty units, again can happen with any laptop. Mine should be coming today, looking forward to it.
Did you buy this laptop?
thanks for comments, I've marked expired now. That's a shame. I wasn't able to check out mine either though it was in my basket!
OOS - shame as would have been £847 using CD keys gift cards.
Superb deal but showing out of stock for me......
This is a really good deal
Good price for the spec - heat added
Mobo is MSI, PSU is 80+ bronze rated probably made by Delta who make good OEM PSU's, all RAM chips are made by Samsung, SK Hynix or Micron, high end RAM also uses these chips, when I did the Partpicker I selected the lowest rated components and it still came out more expensive than this, try it yourself. While I would always build myself this isn't actually a bad system for the price for those who lack the knowledge to do so.
Where they make their money by cutting corners will be a poor motherboard, generic ram and a cheap psu which I wouldn't trust when spending that kind of money.
I've received mine now and had a couple of gaming sessions. It's pretty decent and perfect for me. Although I don't play many fast paced games anymore - mostly RTS, so you might be different
I was just about to post this deal - but HUKD pointed me here bought for my lad who does SIM racing - should’ve a good upgrade from his 32” telly that is about 8 years old (it is 1080p though :D
Is this good for gaming??
Thanks, bought for my sons xmas pressie, also got the HP 3 Year Pickup and Return Service.
Yeah I think so. It's the 100x100 vesa
Can you put a deskmount vesa swivel arm on this?
Is the version with the VA panel better? Just noticed that it is more expensive.
Bought this recently, really great for the price!
Unless you are after the VESA mount you are better off with the cheaper (£199) AOC monitor which uses an IPS panel IMO (Or £202 if you want the same VA panel as this). AOC IPS (£199) - http://amzn.eu/d/jb6QGAu AOC VA (£202) - http://amzn.eu/d/5amW7k2
Meh. £450 for 144hz 1440p 27" G-Sync isnt the hardest price to find when sales are around. For a TN panel anyway. Hard to find them for less than £450 though. I wouldnt say its a bad price, just nothing special imo.
Second hand then
£450 ish for a 1440p 144hz G-Sync monitor? That's an amazing deal?
Meh, Acer's identically spec'd predator monitor has been £450 for about 2 years. I got the Acer one for £400 from Amazon warehouse 2 years ago.
It's cold as it really isn't an 'amazing' deal
Fantastic deal! Had a a AOC Panel for 4 years! Rock solid!
The current prices of these range of monitors is scandalous. I have an Acer XB270HU which I bought (alebit used) 6 months after its release for £380. With that I get G sync, 144hz and IPS at 1440p. The only downside is it's not the prettiest monitor to look at owing to the thick glossy bezels. However the panel in my unit is superb - minimal BLB and no dead pixels. Admittedly the IPS glow is a kicker but you only see if off centre in a dark room. I have looked at up/sidegrading to a different make of this type of screen but you'll struggle to find anything for less than £500 for 4 old tech, it's crazy. The more time goes on the more likely it is my Acer will be staying with me until it kicks the bucket.
There's been alot of scams lately with people selling monitors for dirt cheap!! I nearly fell for one with the Alienware AW3418DW which was listed for £650!!! Turns out 3 of the accounts had been hacked.
Will pull the trigger on this if the £340 I paid to a 3rd party Amazon reseller for an Acer Predator 27" 1440p 165hz G sync IPS monitor turns out to be a scam (I'm beginning to strongly suspect that it is). Sub £500 price seems good for these specs, would be an instabuy if it was an IPS screen.
The 165hz + G-Sync is certainly worth the extra cost in my opinion, I tried a G-Sync monitor at EGX and it was sooo smooth
Why the minus? This is a pretty sweet deal for a laptop of this spec
This or the acer predator helios 500? Any thoughts anyone ?
Scorching deal! Though I always get put off when laptops start weighting around the 3kg mark or higher.
Mine just arrived today from the HP Shop. I called their sales line and asked if they could still apply the "Secret40" code which they did. Also offered the 3y extended warranty for 12£ as an offer which I took. Overall very happy with the purchase. Just didn't expect it to be so darn heavy. Design is fantastic tho and my 1080Ti is sweating over it. Might be time for a RTX xD!
Actually I didn't think to mention that. I was playing destiny the other day and was pretty impressed at the blacks, I didn't expect it. The more I use, it the more I like it. I am a long time lover of IPS panels and thought it would be tough moving over to something else. Once you get them set up, they are sweet as a nut. Good call.
One benefit of VA over IPS not mentioned so far here is lower black levels. IPS lets a lot of light through (which is why it can easily display more vibrant colours) but the blacks become dark grey as a tradeoff. That's why you'll see IPS panels with contrast ratios of around 1000:1 while VA can be anywhere from 3000:1 to 6000:1.
nice one thank you, i've got 23'' to play with so sounds like plenty of room.
Currently it's 21" from desk to top on the monitor and that's comfortable for me sat at roughly 2.5 ft away.
I bought two of these for Xmas just to warn those who bought the deal both of mine are showing as the HP warranty being expired. To rectify this you will need to enter serial number at https://support.hp.com/gb-en/checkwarranty . Once it shows warranty info for your machine you will need to select the dispute option, fill out the web form and provide a copy of the Argos email you received after ordering the machine.
I think your son will be very happy with it, should manage any new AAA game at 1080/60.
Thanks Op - Bought for Son for a bit of mild gaming and general Pc use. :D
Lol sorry that was my phone's autocorrect - it should say "collect". Funny that after I wrote this my 6 month old instant pot died on me and Amazon provided me with a refund (even though I just wanted a replacement). UPDATE: HotUKDeals just deleted my post you quoted because they say it contained profanities... okay then lol
LOL Amazon coming to your door and correcting the faulty part. Never heard of this before.
This has better specs for only £599 https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/asus-fx504gd-e4603t-gaming-laptop-699-or-599-with-code-and-6-months-bnpl-verycouk-3046013
Should have at least a 1050ti for this price really. Also not sure why it has or needs a 144hz screen?
Not great specs for the money
Just wanted to update everyone: this is a full GTX 1060 6GB video card. Mine is boosting to almost 1900MHz!!
Not a bad price for a decent gaming laptop.
Not an i9 octuple processor and the graphics card ain't got at least 32GB GDDR5 XXX. I got a laptop with all of the above for £899. But when someone asks me to link the deal, I'm just not gonna answer. If i refuse to answer, I win.
These laptops are fantastic, my friend has one and I have the previous version (ce003na). The bezels are much thinner so the laptop will actually fit easily into most 15.6" laptop bags, the processor is around 50% faster in most situations, the laptop runs cooler on idle (high temps you will still need to undervolt). Screen is better, with significantly less ghosting than the 120hz monitor on my one, which suffers from it severely. Still prefer the keyboard design on my old model. Everything else seems to me a major improvement. Good stuff here.
https://www.amazon.co.uk/MSI-Leopard-8RE-065UK-15-6-Inch-Gaming/dp/B07C4DQ6WQ/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1537870688&sr=8-1&keywords=gp63 There's also this MSI model with the full laptop 1060 + 16GB Ram, instead of 144hz, it's 120hz. £1,199. I'm looking for one myself, and it's hard to find one! EDIT: oh it's actually the same price if you get it from AO.com with cashback!
I received mine today as well, but I hadn't realised my graphics card uses mini-HDMI and I don't have the right cable/adaptor to connect the monitor (horror) I tried connecting it to my HP Pavilion Laptop I bought last year, but that doesn't detect the monitor via HDMI :/
i received it today and sadly i will send it back, even for such a price is not worth it, even after calibratiot horrible, washed out colors, i have seen better uniformity in monitors for 100£, zero control on gamma and contrast, ghosting and disorted colors on the edges of the monitor. very wobbly stand. model i received was from August 2017!!!! tells all why HP selling them so cheap. better to wait for black friday and buy x34p or aw34
It's because it was a duplicate, but I only found it through this posting and it's a shame I can't upvote this one! Thanks to the OP though :)
Thanks. My mistake.
I don't know why this is expired - I just bought this for £539 delivered using the code. I thought I'd found a great deal on the Dell U3417W at £529 from Laptop Spares - they only had 1 in stock so didn't post it here. It arrived today and the box was for a U3415W so I refused it on delivery. I came back to HDUK and was disappointed to see this expired but tried it anyway and it worked. I'm really surprised that it only has 1 dp and 1 HDMI. I have my work laptop and my gaming desktop machine connected to both my current monitors. My work laptop is connected through a Dell Displaylink D3100 which only supports this resolution on the DP port, but the remaining HDMI port, which I'll have to use for the desktop, only supports up to 50Hz at 3440x1440. I'll see how it looks - the other alternative is to swap cables when I switch machines but that would be a pain. I'll see how it goes.
No probs :)
Thank you! I will wait til black Friday then (unicorn)
The i7 version of the ASUS FX503GM (GTX 1060 6GB) was available from a.o. for £899 after cashback. The i5 version was £799 after CB. both unavailable at the moment though. It's highly possible you'll see those prices again come Black Friday. You don't often see an i7 paired with the 1050 tbh. But you can pick up i5 + 1050 laptops south of £700 regularly. Sometimes a fair amount cheaper tjan that too.
No, I'm a girl so clearly don't know anything about anything. Please, show me where can I buy this Gtx1060 i7 gaming laptop for £900 as I'd really like to buy one.
That would be the 1080ti for £630. And there's 1060 laptops under £800 posted frequently, yes with i5 but there's been an i7 8th gen 1060 for £900 with 120hz screen etc. Like how hard is it to search things and read numbers bro? Are you 12 years old?
Does seem odd, though this machine would be perfect for eSports games such as CS:GO.
It does have changeable zones for the keyboard
1050 Ti + 144Hz panel :/
This, silly to pay £900 for 1050ti
I don't like the red keys on the keyboard unless it has changed from the previous mode and has changeable zonesl, and there is too much flex on the screen. The trackpad also doesn't run Windows Precision Drivers. I also believe that all USB ports are on the rear of the machine which might be a pain in the butt, especially as I will have to plug in an external hard drive to back up my files, and an external Blu Ray/DVD Drive as I still buy music CD's and rip them. I won't be able to push my laptop to the back of my small desk. I have tried the previous model and wasn't that impressed with the B&O speakers either. I know its more expensive but I'm thinking of investing in an ACER Predator Helios 300 with the i5 8300H processor and the USB ports are on the side.
Doh! Not available anymore..... :( Look's good...
This is the one I bought https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/asus-rog-strix-scar-edition-gl703-laptop-intel-core-i7-16gb-1tb-256-ssd-geforce-gtx-1060-173-black-at-john-lewis-for-979-3010243 couldn't be more pleased with it.
Where and how much? I'm interested as looking :)
Agreed. Defintely a bit of a panel lottery with the 17 inch.
At the highest settings, yes, absolutely. Also, people don't buy gaming laptops just for gaming, some use them for 3D moddelling and animation too.
Tempted, have some heat
Ships from Wellingborough eh? Might get done for handling stolen goods if ya order (excited)
Yet to see anyone capable to refurbishing an overheated or over used CPU - would touch them.
Links don't work
Anything with 120hz display?
I'd be using it for gaming and on the odd occasion a tiny bit of design work but not much these days. I loved my 4k monitor before but some things were just too small back then. I got a 4k monitor a long time ago. Things are a lot more supported these days but still not perfect. I also am obsessed with screen estate and space. I play MMORPG's a lot and RPGS so details, details details! I like to have a lot on my screen at once and my UI can get crazy sometimes so the better resolution and wider the better. Honestly, as much as I love the thought of an UW though I think just going 4k would be better even if I have to reduce a few things like shadows and AA. Hoping one day a GPU comes out that can really run 4k and I'd be happy with 60fps as I've never known anything more
A 35" 3440x1440 resolution monitor has the same DPI as a 2560x1440 27" one. *edit* just run the numbers through sven's DPI calculator and apparently I'm wrong but not by much, 106 DPI for 35" vs 108 for 27". 4K gets a similar DPI on a 40" monitor.
porn would look great on this
