HP Omen X 35 review

The HP Omen X 35 sets its gigantic, bent plan with the kind of luxurious marking that we've reached anticipate from HP's top of the line gaming range.

HP's Omen gadgets haven't generally conveyed previously, however, with high costs and little interest past the feel – so we're intrigued to perceive how this screen handles an undeniably swarmed commercial center.

The HP Omen X 35 gets off to a decent begin, be that as it may. Its 1800R bend is ordinary, and it functions admirably by giving an inexorably immersive review edge. The 3,440 x 1,440 goals is awesome, as well – it's the present sweet-spot for giving a lot of detail without working illustrations cards too hard.

Price and availability

There's no maintaining a strategic distance from the high cost, however. The Omen X will set you back around £882 or $799 – or more than AU$1,500. That is a few times more costly than customary 16:9 gaming screens.

Both of the HP's quickest opponents offer aggressive costs, in spite of the fact that they do differ contingent upon which side of the Atlantic you're on. The AOC Agon AG352UCG6 is a 35in screen with a 1440p goals, and it'll set you back £735 in the UK, however, $870 in the US.

The BenQ EX3501R is another 35in board and is the most moderate out of the three we've specified here. In the UK it's simply £625, while in America it'll cost you $799.

Design and features

The HP Omen X 35 looks more amazing than the vast majority of alternate screens available. Rather than utilizing the thin, dull legs that adversaries depend on, the Omen sits on an eye-getting metal square.

The square baseboard appears to be unique, and it's seemingly simpler to use than if it had wide, spindly legs – as it makes it less demanding to position the huge HP on a normal work area.

The square base sits underneath a thin, rectangular stand that has an earphone snare and a link directing circle, and the screen's tallness can be balanced by sliding the board here and there the stand. The screen can tilt advances and in reverse, as well.

The HP Omen X 35 absolutely looks more capturing than a portion of its adversaries. The more moderate BenQ EX3501R is similarly as expansive, yet its metal stand and base are plain. The AOC Agon AG352UCG6 is darker, with dark metal utilized all through, yet it's still not as eye-getting as the HP Omen. Notwithstanding, know that the AOC has a swiveling stand, so it is somewhat more flexible.

The HP Omen X 35's sharp feeling of style proceeds to the screen itself. Three of the bezels are thin – the fourth is more extensive on the grounds that the logo – and the board has encompassing lighting that imitates the shading profile of on-screen content. This element is intended to make the screen less demanding to see in dim rooms, and the lighting can likewise be tuned to a specific shading, or crippled totally.

The HP Omen X 35 has brilliant form quality all through, however, it is to a great degree substantial. It tips the scales at 26 pounds – the AOC is somewhat lighter, while the BenQ undermines both at 23 pounds. The HP is additionally almost 33 inches wide and 16 inches tall, so it's not really inconspicuous either.

Get past the feel and the HP Omen X 35 serves up a strong determination. At the back, you have HDMI 1.4 and DisplayPort 1.2, which give sufficient data transmission to the screen's 3,440 x 1,440 goals. The Omen likewise has three USB 3.0 connectors and an earphone jack.

The ports confront outwards, however, they're clumsy to access as they're situated between the stand and the screen. It's particularly precarious on the off chance that you need to every now and again utilize the USB ports – it would have been decent to have one, in any event, in favor of the screen. There's no handle, either, and no speakers.

These are as a matter of fact minor defects, yet they're all worth considering on the off chance that you need to spend this much cash. It's likewise worth recollecting that the less expensive BenQ has USB-C and HDR – neither of which comes included on the HP.

Within you get 100Hz Nvidia G-Sync. That is a strong figure, yet the AOC board has G-Sync that tops out at 120Hz, while the BenQ manages with 100Hz AMD FreeSync.

The HP Omen X 35's 100Hz pinnacle means gaming is smooth on this screen, yet the AOC is better in such manner. Furthermore, regardless of which board you pick, know about the graphical snort required: to run diversions at 100fps and past on a 3,440 x 1,440 screen, you'll require a GTX 1080 Ti or comparable.

The HP's board utilizes VA innovation, which is indistinguishable sort of equipment from the AOC and BenQ boards. That is obvious, as VA screens by and large convey incredible complexity. Every one of the three of the screens we've specified here likewise has a 4ms reaction time.

The Omen is controlled by a savvy, smart on-screen show. It's controlled by three shallow catches on the right-hand side of the screen. The menus are natural and in every case quick, with choices showed sensibly.


  • Screen measure: 35-inch 

  • Local goals: 3,440 x 1,440 

  • Perspective proportion: 21:9 

  • Revive rate: 100Hz 

  • Pixel thickness: 82ppi 

  • Reaction time: 4ms 

  • Review point: 178°/178° 

  • Shine: 300cd/m2 

  • Differentiation proportion: 2,500:1 

  • Ports: 1 x HDMI 1.4, DisplayPort 1.2, 3 x USB 3.0, 1 x sound 

  • Worked in speakers: n/a 

  • Measurements: 32.7 x 12.9 x 16.2 inches (833 x 329 x 412mm; WxDxH) 

  • Weight: 26.4 pounds (12kg) 

  • Guarantee: 2yrs 


The HP Omen X 35 conveyed reliably great picture quality, yet it just misses the mark concerning genuine significance.

Take the plant splendor level of 279cd/m2. It's great, and effectively sufficiently high to deal with gaming in typical circumstances and underneath brilliant lights. Be that as it may, it doesn't coordinate the HP's cited 300cd/m2 figure, and the screen's dark level of 0.16cd/m2 isn't on a par with some different screens we've seen.

Those two numbers join for a differentiation proportion of 1,738:1. That, once more, is a phenomenal figure – yet it cannot coordinate HP's spec sheet.

In any case, that great difference still enables this screen to serve up heavenly dynamic quality at each purpose of the shading range, and in addition unpretentious changes in hues in all cases. That is imperative with regards to influencing recreations to look punchy and exact, regardless of the hues they're delivering.

The HP Omen X 35 has a decent normal Delta E of 1.82 – underneath the imperative figure of 2 where the human eye can't differentiate. The shading temperature of 6,418K is awesome, as well, with scarcely any deviation from the perfect figure of 6,500K. The two figures guarantee that the HP conveys extraordinary shading precision, and the board's sRGB extent scope level of 98.7% is amazing. In short: hues in amusements and motion pictures will look exact, and there won't be any recreations that the Omen won't have the capacity to deal with.

Consistency was just normal, however. The board's backdrop illumination fluctuated by 13% on the left-hand edge and 15% on the right-hand side. This is a typical issue with widescreen screens, and those figures won't cause issues except if you're doing work that is to a great degree shading and differentiation touchy.

Our last test, input slack, is critical for gaming. In this test, the HP Omen X 35 restored a normal reaction speed of 14.2ms. Anything underneath 20ms is perfect for gaming, and notwithstanding for focused play, so there are no issues here.

Of course, don't mess with the class particular screen modes included on the HP Omen X 35. The Omen has distinctive alternatives for RTS, dashing and FPS recreations, however, they enhanced differentiation while destroying shading exactness. Differentiation is now brilliant, so that is not an exchange off we'd consider.


The HP Omen X 35 has a lot of enticing qualities. The outline is phenomenal, and it was packed in a superb board with a gigantic goal and 100Hz Nvidia G-Sync.

Its benchmark results are great, and notwithstanding when it comes up short it's never by much: the poorer consistency won't affect everyday utilize, and the diversion particular modes are effectively kept away from.

The HP Omen X 35 effectively has enough quality to influence diversions and movies to look awesome. It'll look great around your work area while doing it, as well.

Nonetheless, a portion of those benchmark results could have been somewhat better, and opponents do offer unrivaled specs: the AOC has enhanced G-Sync, while BenQ's less expensive screen has FreeSync, HDR, and more ports.

The cost is somewhat high, as well. In many nations, the HP will be somewhat more costly than the AOC and BenQ boards, and it doesn't legitimize the additional cost other than with its strong looks and eye-discovering marking.

In general, the HP Omen X 35 is a great screen, with great screen quality and a strong arrangement of highlights. It's surely worth purchasing in case you're scanning for an attractive gaming screen that can back up its plan with splendid, exact pictures. It's costly, however, and your cash will go facilitate somewhere else in case you're willing to surrender the top of the line looks and Omen mark.
