- 1 Our Verdict [HP OMEN X 25f Monitor Review]
Looking for the best HP Omen x 25 review? If so, keep on reading to know more.
This is the first laptop from HP’s Omen series. It is a high-end gaming laptop and as such it offers pretty strong hardware for its price tag. Since this review is mainly about performance, we won’t spend much time describing the design or build quality of the device.
We will only mention that because of its rather large size it isn’t exactly easy to carry around but on the other hand, thanks to its extendable screen hinge, you can easily open up the display by tilting it back to 180 degrees.
This comes in especially handy if you often use touch-based devices like tablets or smartphones since you won’t have to constantly switch modes when adjusting your laptop’s position which makes using Windows 8 gestures feel less clumsy.
Of course, you’ll have to switch modes manually when using the laptop in a different mode but that is simply much easier for most people.
Our Verdict [HP OMEN X 25f Monitor Review]
The HP Omen 25 is a good choice for gamers looking to play fast-paced games, but there are other laptops that offer better performance and features at lower prices.
If you see the monitor on sale and need to know what else it can do, then Iâ€™d say give this display a shot. Otherwise, there are so many other options available with features like integrated speakers or a wider FreeSync range that might be more suited for your needs.

This monitor is perfect for gamers looking to maximize their enjoyment. It delivers a great gaming experience with outstanding low input lag, fast response time, and support from AMD FreeSync even if you’re using an NVIDIA graphics card but keeps in mind that it isn’t as ergonomic when put on the stand so make sure your desk space permits.
Pros & Cons
- Outstanding motion handling.
- Extremely low input lag.
- Low input lag and quick response time.
- AMD FreeSync
- USB ports
- Decent image quality for a TN panel display.
- Image degrades when viewed at an angle.
- Mediocre picture quality.
- Tilt-only stand
- Inferior image quality to IPS and VA panels.
- Narrow viewing angles.
If you’re looking for a good monitor to use at work, this one might be the right choice. The 1080p screen size isn’t ideal when it comes time to multi-task and there arenâ€™t any angle adjustment features that will make sharing content difficult with clients or colleagues (though brightness should not pose an issue). However, its reflection handling abilities are top-notch making it perfect during sunny days.
The 1080p screen resolution might disappoint some gamers who are looking for more pixels but the relatively small size makes this device ergonomic as well-making its flaws worth overlooking in favor of other features like tone brightness or contrast ratio numbers that don’t tell you anything useful without context
The new OmenX25F gaming monitor offers high refresh rates with very little delay to create images really quickly on-screen which looks good especially when playing fast-paced games where there are lots happening all at once so having something.
The OMEN X25f is a great bargain for those who want to watch multimedia. The 1080p resolution may disappoint some people, but the excellent reflection handling and gray uniformity make up for this shortcoming in well-lit rooms. Unfortunately, it has average viewing angles that are best enjoyed directly in front of your TV screen.
The TFT56p is a versatile monitor that will serve you well for media creation. Thanks to its low input lag and responsive design, it’s an excellent choice whether your workspace has bright or dark lighting conditions, and even if the screen itself reflects light at one point!
The viewing angles aren’t too bad either; when viewed from different distances in front of this panel only minor distortion appears on-screen which should make text recognition easy without much difficulty when designers need accurate color matching between their products’ palettes.
- Curve radius
- Weight (without stand)Â 9.7 lbs (4.4 kg)
- Weight (with stand)Â 13.7 lbs (6.2 kg)
The HP OMEN X 25f has a very good design, nearly identical to the HP 27. It’s thin bezels on three sides and looks great in a multi-monitor setup or VESA mounted – it supports your monitor well with limited ergonomics as swiveling isn’t possible but rotation into portrait orientation is supported for when you want full view at any given angle! This screen also boasts excellent build quality despite being almost entirely made out of plastic; there are no obvious weak spots here so donâ€™t worry about breaking anything.
- Width 7.8″ (19.8 cm)
- Depth 7.8″ (19.8 cm)
The stand is so thin and minimal that you can put things in front of it without blocking your monitor! There’s also a headphone hook on top, just like with the OMEN 27.
- Height Adjustment 5.1″ (13.0 cm)
- Switch portrait/landscape No
- Swivel Range N/A
- Tilt Range -22.5Â° to 5Â°
This monitor is not great for the office. The stand has good height adjustment and excellent tilt range, but it cannot swivel or rotate to portrait orientation which makes working on your desk all too awkward.
- Wall Mount VESA 100×100
The back of the monitor is made from high-quality plastic, but with a premium finish to it. There’s also an attractive loop at base for cable management purposes and there are no quick releases on either side or underneath which makes VESA mounting easy! In order to attach these adapters though you’ll need some extra hardware – all included in your purchase.
BordersÂ 0.3″ (0.8 cm)
The border around this monitor is very thin on three sides and blends in when using the screen. There’s also an RGB ambient lighting feature along with its bottom bezel.
- Thickness (with stand) 7.2″ (18.3 cm)
- Thickness (without stand) 3.7″ (9.4 cm)
This monitor is just as thick and heavy, despite the smaller screen.
The build quality of this monitor is excellent. The metal stand and nice finish give it a premium feel, without sacrificing any functionality or reliability in the process. We were impressed by how sturdy everything felt; there didn’t seem to be any issues with its durability at all.
Native ContrastÂ 1,126 : 1
In contrast with local dimmingÂ N/A
The OMEN X 25f has a passable contrast ratio. It’s better than the OMEN 27, and very similar to BenQ Zowie XL2540; these results aren’t great for dark room viewing due to how black appears gray in comparison.
The latency and color accuracy of TN panels is not the best, but if youâ€™re looking for a quick response time in your FPS gaming then this could be an ideal choice.
While there are some cons associated with using these types of displays such as narrow viewing angles or mediocre colors depth when compared to other technologies like IPS Panels; they can still provide benefits specific only towards certain genres/games where low pixel density doesn’t really matter too much because gamers will most likely have higher standards when playing their preferred eSports title.
- Multiple input display
The new OMEN X 25f TV has a few cool features that make it stand out from the rest. It doesn’t support HDR10, which is disappointing given its high-end price tag and lack of included speakers; however, you can still take advantage of virtual overlays!
The RGB Ambient Lighting adds some extra flair during darker scenes in your living room or bedroom while watching movies on Netflix – just what we all need at night time to help relax after work/school stressors have been released into society as best they could manage before bedtime rituals took over completely.
What’s the frame rate? You’ll find out when this counter reaches 100%. The Frame Rate Counter will display how many frames per second your computer gets from its connected source. Message timers are great for creating the perfect message every time. You can set up your own custom messages, or choose from a few pre-programmed ones.
Have you ever wanted to play games without having the frustration of not knowing where your target is? Well, now there’s an app for that! Virtual Crosshair will install on any device and allow players with smartphones to enjoy targeting virtual objects in 3D environments.
With this new tool available at no cost downloadable through Google Play Store or Apple App store users can become infinitely more strategic by simply tapping their screen when they want something targeted directly towards them – no need to waste ammo on shots from afar anymore.
The HP X 25f is a decent 1080p monitor with great gaming performance. The 240Hz refresh rate delivers outstanding clear motion, and its incredibly fast response time means that gamers can play without worrying about lag or blurry images when they’re in game-play mode!
It has an amazing low input lag so it’s perfect for competitive players who want to minimize their mistakes at all costs – just be careful not to look into this bad boy from too steep of an angle because then your picture quality will go downhill quickly.
A lot has changed since our last review on TN Monitors (TN stands for Total Number). This class used only one type: TN Film panels which offered quite good visuals but suffered due to Mooreâ€™s Law; most brands now.
However, even though this notebook is primarily targeted at gamers, it does not mean it has lost its charm or usefulness in other areas entirely. It still offers a good set of connectivity features and the keyboard feels nice to type on which is difficult to find in gaming laptops.
The trackpad also works flawlessly and supports all kinds of gestures which many notebooks fail to do nowadays. However, no matter how well designed these input devices are, they will never provide as much precision as the typical desktop mouse or high-quality external monitor which makes this laptop less suitable for CAD work than similarly priced conventional business machines.
Talking about the screen, it is a massive 15.6-inch IPS panel featuring Full HD resolution and matte finish to reduce glare. It has wide viewing angles thanks to its In-Plane Switching (IPS) technology and provides good colors and clarity as well as a nice contrast.
The best thing about this display though is that it uses NVIDIA’s G-SYNC technology for smooth gameplay free of stuttering or screen tearing which makes the whole experience even better – but more on that later. Underneath all those goodies there’s one of Intel’s latest CPUs: Core i7-4720HQ quad-core running at 2.6 GHz with Turbo Boost up to 3.6 GHz available in certain situations.
For graphics, we have an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970M with 3GB of GDDR5 memory. As for storage, this laptop has two M2 SSD slots on the sides featuring RAID 0 which makes it pretty fast at reading or writing data.
The notebook features 8 GB DDR3L memory soldered onto the motherboard and is upgradeable to 16 GB in total so you won’t have any problem running multiple apps simultaneously. There are also two empty RAM slots available if you want to upgrade this machine down the line.
Theoretically, there’s also the possibility for upgrading storage devices but unfortunately, only one 2.5-inch bay is accessible without taking apart the entire device which will most likely require some hardware experience.
Thanks for reading!
