    The price should be below 70000 . Otherwise what is the difference between HP omen and pavilion… All other specs are good although the price is bit overpriced. Pls make the price to an affordable price for everyone

    I received a defective product. Shift key was faulty and not working properly. I raised a return request. i am disappointed with the fact that my 71000 rs laptop came faulty.EDIT : Pickup boy was refusing to collect back laptop saying “Laptop is used”.Guys offcourse the laptop is used for 1 day.Comclusion :So basically amazon wants us to first check for any manufacturing defects in the product without using the product. Great sarcasm by amazon.

    Your browser does not support HTML5 video.  This review is after 10 months. I am a software engineer and I use this laptop for hours a day.Pros:1. Powerful processor,it is a beast! Easy multitasking. Usually I use IDE s, MS Teams, browsers, emulators together. But it never hangs! It’s smooth.2. Light weight, feels like an ultrabook.3. Good design , nice premium look.4. Good battery life , 8+ hours when it is in power saver mode and just browsing.5. Upgradeable ram.6. Nvme SSD option.7. Perfect keyboard, this keyboard is better than those in much more expensive models.8. Very thin bezels.9. There is a superspeed C.Cons:1. Ram in this laptop is 8gb ddr4, but very poor quality.(samsung ram 21 GBps read speed)2. Average speakers.3. No ssd , nvme ssd can be added. It’s pathetic with given hdd . It hangs as hdd usage becomes 100 whenever you open something.Takes 50 sec to boot up and again 2-3 minutes to come into action. Never think to use it without nvme ssd.4. Overall build quality is average.Note: 60Hz displaySamsung 970 Evo plus nvme ssd works fine with this ! You need to buy it seperately. With that you get complete potential of this laptop. I am using it.There is only one 2.0 and one 3.0 port and one C.

    Bought this on Amazon Day. There are only 2 items during that time and this 1 while not perfect is a good buy in my opinion. AMD 4th Gen is much2x faster than Intel I7-8565 (my old laptop) and based on articles also faster compared to I7-10th Gen. 8GB is enough for day to day and GTX1650 is enough for game. Display is marvelous, backlit keyboard helpful a lot as I need to see where I type :). I do upgrade the HDD with M2 SSD and installation is a breeze. Just open 7 screws and access to the slot is covered only by a sticker.

    First of all big thanks to Amazon to deliver this product within 3 days even in this pandemic situation, their supply chain is simple awesome.Based on 1.5 days of full hard core usage I found out the following things :1. Amd 4600H Rocks ! Very powerful processor better than i5 9th and i7 9th gen laptop.2. I am big fan of CSGO so getting average 140fps in very high settings.3. Design is very cool and build quality is average made of plastic.4. Battery is same as most of the gaming laptop.5. Nivida 1650ti makes very smooth gameplay with 144hz screen.Cons:1. Touchpad button is not very comfortable to press.2. Display is little bit on down side, but perfect at this price point.3. Volume of Sound is also lower side.Conclusion:There are not major issues in this laptop but you have to do windows update etc. At this price point HP is beating every single laptop out there with the Combination of (Amd 4600H + Nvidia 1650ti + 144hz screen). You can blindly go for this one.If you have any “Logical” questions I would be happy to answer them.

    I purchased the HP Pavillion Gaming 15-ec1024AX during the prime day sale for around 59k. According to my testing and comparing it to other laptops in the price range, I can confidently say that this is easily the most powerful laptop under 60k.CPU:The amd ryzen 5 4600h is an absolute price to performance beast and this CPU alone makes this PC worth buying. It’s performance is even better than the intel i7 10750h which is usually found in laptops above 1 lakh (see Cinebench scores below for CPU performance).GPU:The Nvidia Geforce gtx 1650 is pretty good for this price range and is definitely a better deal than the 1650ti which is priced around 10k more with a performance bump of only around 7%. (For more details about GPU performance see the Unigine Heaven and Shadow of the Tomb Raider benchmarks below).Thermals:The thermals were actually better than I expected. In all my benchmarks and stress tests the CPU temps rarely crossed 90 degrees C and the GPU temps are much lower (around 70 degrees C). You can see the thermal design with 2 heat pipes and two fans. Also the intake (underside) and exhaust (rear) vents are pretty large, which allows for good airflow. Even at max performance the fans don’t get very loud. Unfortunately there is no software to manually control the fan speed, but I think I’m asking for too much at this price range.Display:The IPS LCD display seems pretty good to me and viewing angles are excellent. The peak brightness is more than enough indoors, but I haven’t tested it outdoors. I don’t know about NTSC or sRGB values, but the colours look good to my eyes.Miscellaneous:RAM is 8GB 3200MHz single-channel with one slot free. This is perfect for me because I want to upgrade to 16GB, but for those who don’t want to upgrade, the lack of dual channel RAM could be a negative.The installed hard drive is terrible, like all hard drives (see Crystaldiskmark scores). On the bright side, the laptop supports upto 1TB of M.2 NVMe SSD storage. I have installed a 250GB NVMe SSD and it made a HUGE difference. (Boot time reduced from 40secs to under 10secs). The process of transferring windows to the SSD and making it the boot drive is a little complicated, but you can always get it done by a professional. I HIGHLY recommend upgrading to an SSD, without it performance is quite sluggish.I cannot say anything about the battery life because I haven’t tested it yet.The keyboard is excellent. It has two levels of white backlighting (much better than violet IMO) and it has a numpad which is a necessity for me. The only problem is that the arrow keys are squished together.Build is all plastic, but has a clean and understated look (I hate obnoxious GAMERY aesthetics). The build feels pretty sturdy but one major problem is that it picks up fingerprints like crazy and it is pretty tough to clean (see pictures).Now here’s some data from the benchmarks I ran. I have given results for both while charging and on battery:CPU Z (Charging): CPU Bench: Single thread: 490.0 Multi thread: 4021.7 Multi thread ratio: 8.21 CPU Stress: 5 min CPU Max temp: 90.9°C CPU Max power: 50.9WCPU Z (Battery): CPU Bench: Single thread: 479.5 Multi thread: 2440.5 Multi thread ratio: 5.09 CPU Stress: 5 min CPU Max temp: 74.0°C CPU Max power: 30.8WCinebench R20 (Charging):Single core score: 454Multi core score: 3400MP ratio: 7.48Cinebench R20 (Battery):Single core score: 446Multi core score: 2822MP ratio: 6.32Unigine Heaven 4.0 (Charging):DirectX11, high quality, normal tesselation, 1080pScore: 1772Avg framerate: 70.4FPSMax framerate: 138.6FPSMin framerate: 19.1FPSGPU stable clock: 1785MHzGPU max power: 50.9WGPU max temp: 63°CUnigine Heaven 4.0 (Battery):DirectX11, high quality, normal tesselation, 1080pScore: 1385Avg framerate: 55.0FPSMax framerate: 125.6FPSMin framerate: 16.9FPSGPU stable clock: 1500MHzGPU max power: 31.5WGPU max temp: 53°CCrystaldiskmark:Default, 5 cycles, 1GiB HDD: Sequential read: 127.5MB/s Random read: 1.3MB/s Sequential write: 122.4MB/s Random write: 1.1MB/s SSD: (not included, bought separately) Sequential read: 2034.4MB/s Random read: 857.0MB/s Sequential write: 1263.0MB/s Random write: 1046.5MB/sBlender BMW (Charging):CPU: Time: 4m8s CPU max temp: 93.8°C CPU max power: 53.4WGPU: Time: 2m38s GPU max temp: 58°C GPU max power: 43.1WBlender BMW(Battery):CPU: Time: 5m5s CPU max temp: 68.5°C CPU max power: 32.2WGPU: Time: 3m46s GPU max temp: 54°C GPU max power: 30.7WShadow of the tomb raider (Charging): (see settings in pic)Avg framerate: 69FPSCPU max temp: 84.4°CCPU max power: 29.1WGPU max temp: 70°CGPU max power: 50.8WShadow of the tomb raider (Battery): (see settings in pic)Avg framerate: 58FPSCPU max temp: 65°CCPU max power: 15WGPU max temp: 56°CGPU max power: 30.5W

    I wanted to buy a laptop and my main purpose was fast processor, occasional photo and video editing, good overall design and longevity. This will look something like minimum 4 core processors with up to 4 GHz, 500 GB SSD, 16 GB RAM, min. 4 GB graphics card. Other preferences were that the laptop should be less than 2 Kg, has decent thermals, good audio and mic for video calls and battery life of at least 4 hours on normal usage and easy to carry design. My budget was limited, so I definitely couldn’t afford i7 10th gen laptops which cost more than a lakh. In my budget of 60k, I had just two options- Ryzen 5 4600H or Intel i5 9th generations.I read lots of reviews, watched a lot of youtube unboxing videos, and visited nearby stores also to check hands-on. And my conclusions are as follows:Ryzen 5 4600 H is much ahead of Intel i5 10th generation and matches upto intel i7 10th gen in some areas. The reason is 7 nm architecture and 2 additional cores, better thermals and more efficiency in utilizing RAMs. These processors are so popular and in demand that since June, the laptops listed on Amazon and Flipkart started getting out of stock within a few hours of being listed. So, my best bet was definitely Ryzen 5 4600H over any other processor.In August, HP launched Pavilion Gaming laptop with Ryzen 5 4600H laptops with Nvidia GTX 1650 4 GB graphics card on Amazon which was listed at a price of 60,990 but with 1 TB 5200 RPM and 8 GB 2666 MHz RAM. The laptop had many complaints of slow boot speed, but that’s because of the 5200 rpm HDD. At Least they should have provided 7200 rpm HDD with such high specs. This meant, we definitely had to invest in a M.2 NVME SSD of 500 GB to utilize the processor speed which would cost me approx. 6-7K. That laptop is currently available at 65k on Amazon.In a couple of weeks, HP launched a slightly upgraded version of the Pavilion Gaming laptop with same specs but with 512 GB NVME SSD, 1650Ti 4 GB graphics card and 144 Hz LCD screen at 70,990 but the price was later increased to Rs 71,999. In a few days another variant was launched at slightly increased price with 1 TB HDD and 256 GB SSD. The HP Omen laptop os similar configuration is also available in similar specs but with 60Hz screen in between 76-81k online.However, Asus Tuf A15 with Ryzen 5 4600h, 144 Hz screen and 512 GB SSD was again back in stock the next day and provided exactly the same specs to the Hp pavilion gaming laptop of 72k but at least `10k cheaper. Another benefit Asus Tuf A15 gave was upgradability of RAm upto 32 GB compared to 16 GB in Pavillion. The laptop was out of stock within a couple of hours. But, what attracted me was the availability of the Ryzen 7 4800H within 76K which is actually a steal. However, I went with HP Pavilion Gaming with Ryzen 5 4600H, 512 GB SSD with 144 HZ screen over Asus Tuf A15.In my next section I am going to explain what made me buy HP Pavilion instead of Asus TUF A15 despite the big price difference.Asus Tuf A15 is undeniably the most value for money at least for gaming enthusiasts, but my purpose here is not just gaming but also using the laptop for work as well as content creation. I am a heavy user and normally use my laptop 7-8 hours a day working. When I went through all reviews available on Amazon as well as many youtube videos made in India and abroad- I came across at least 3 issues in Asus Tuf A15.Build quality:Though Asus claims Tuf A15 has military grade design, the reviews and my own hands on experience in Asus store clearly showed that the plastic quality in and around the keyboard is very cheap and can be pressed easily. There are also problems with the quality of hinges which I think is common with most low and mid range Asus laptops. Same with the lid. There are lots of youtube videos where you can see people complaining about the delicate lid and keyboard base. This issue may be ignored if you look at the price. But…certainly this will affect the user experience and most importantly the joy of using the laptop.Screen:Both Hp and Asus come with 144 Hz FHD IPS LCD displays. None of the displays are great for content creators due to 45% NTSC. One common complaint in both of the laptops is their poor brightness and colour gamut. However, if you do comparison, Asus’s screen quality lags slightly behind in terms of saturation and colour reproduction. Though the difference is not very significant, HP’s screen edges out the Asus by a margin in terms of colour reproduction, while Asus’s brightness is marginally better than HP. This is my personal observation and you can also google about this. I only expect that the laptop companies should provide an option of going with a 60 fps screen with better colour gamut for content creators rather forcing us with 144 Hz screen with poor colour gamut.Thermal and fan noise:Almost all users of Asus Tuf A15 agree that thermals are poorly designed because of which GPU and CPU gets too hot reaching up to 95 degrees as per some reviews. . I am not going too deep into it, as you can yourself google it. The main reason is the placement of the fans away from the processor and the poor ventilation design. Due to the design flaw, Asus has put powerful fans to pull and push air through the small vents. This had again two effects- heating of the body which is of not great quality plastic and load on the cooling fan which has to constantly run at high rpms. The 2nd turn off in Asus Tuf A15 is the fan noise. Almost all reviews of TufA15 complain about the fan noise. However, the high temperatures may not have a significant impact on processor performance and the system will work fine. But upgrading memory later may alter the thermal dynamics and one may need to be very careful while tinkering with this laptop. Though the heating and noise is within acceptable limits, it does cause distraction while working. Also, Tuf A15 being approx 350g heavier alongwith hot air coming out with noisy fans may prevent you from using the notebook on your lap or using it for longer durations. Compared to Asus tuf A15- HP Pavilion thermal are much much better and there is hardly any noise coming out. There is ample ventilation given below and to the back which is powered by two fans which is placed just above the processor. It is perfect for long work, and you can place it on your lap without worrying about the heat and noise.Battery:Asus Tuf A15 comes with 48 WH 3-cell battery while HP comes with 52 WH 3-cell battery. However, the average backup time in both the laptops varies significantly. While Asus claims 6 hours, HP claims 8 hours backup. I have used the HP laptop for 6 hours straight surfing the web and working on MS Word. People who use Asus claim to reach around 5 hours. HP has clearly an advantage over Asus in this segment because of better power management, much of which owes to better thermal management.Sound:The Bang & Olufsen speakers in HP Pavilion are much much ahead of the in-built speakers in Asus Tuf A-15 in terms of clarity and loudness. HP Pavilion also comes with dual microphones which are placed just alongside the camera. On the other hand, Asus provides DTX Ultra 7.1 sound drivers which you can connect to your home theater or headphone. In my opinion, having good quality speakers is much better in a laptop than having a driver to use in an external speaker. In this segment, HP is the clear winner.Design:HP is known for design which caters to working professionals and Asus is known for innovation and caters to youth and gamers. This can be visible in these two models. HP Pavilion is lightweight just below >2 Kg compared to Asus Tuf A15 which weighs 2.30 Kg. Over that the design of HP is targeted towards content creators and the plastic quality doesn’t feel cheap and the laptop itself is quite sturdy. Asus on the other hand feels cheap and the plastic quality is just okay. The keyboard of HP pavilion is white single colour with 2 brightness level and raised keys, while Asus has multi color RGB keyboard with highlighted transparent keys W-ASD keys which gives it a gaming look. The keys in both of these laptops are of good quality but provide different user experiences. Personally, I liked the keyboard layout of hp better for working professionals compared to Asus which is made primarily keeping the gamers in mind. The touchpad in Hp is single body design, while Asus has provided separate right and left buttons. The placement of speakers in honeycomb design just above the keyboard is certainly better than Asus and also adds to the premium look. The V-shaped joint between the keyboard and the screen looks much better than the 2 single hinges of Asus Tuf A 15.My Conclusion:Both Asus Tuf A15 and HP Pavilion Gaming are value for money laptops but designed entirely for two different segments of user. If you are working professional, who wants a feature-rich, reliable, silent, sturdy and have a laptop experience-then go for HP Pavilion which is slightly expensive but that is worth the price. If you are a heavy gamer or tight in budget- then Asus Tuf A15 and prefers specifications over features- then Asus Tuf A15 is the best choice.
