  • Gorgeous design
  • Decent performance for a gaming tower
  • Solid build quality
  • CPU fan gets noisy when gaming

Summary

HP Omen 30L is a solid pick for a mainstream gaming tower, if a smidge unpolished inside. It's widely configurable, with AMD and Intel CPU flavors, overclocking options, and RGB lighting. The Omen could still do with better cooling, as you get just the one front intake fan.
This rundown provides our analysis on 8 third-party reviews. The sentiment scores, summaries, and key takeaways that we select are based on these reviews and may differ from the original publication.

Reviewers from Pcmag have found the following[***]:
The Omen 30L replaces the Omen Obelisk in HP's lineup with a redesigned case and newer technology. Its impressive configuration options start with a six-core AMD Ryzen 5 or an Intel Core i5 CPU. The tempered glass front sets it apart from the smaller and less powerful Omen 25L.

  • Powerful six-core AMD Ryzen 5 CPU and Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 video card
  • Cooler Master and Western Digital components

Sentiment Score[*] 58%
Reviewers from Techradar have found the following[***]:
The HP Omen 30L starts at $1,699 for a modest 11th Gen Core i7/RTX 3060 Ti model and jumps up to $2,999 for a model that squeezes in an RTX 3090. Configuration options also allow for a lot more granular control over the hardware included. With settings dialed down, it can offer blistering speeds at 1080p with Ultra settings even in demanding games like Metro Exodus.

The HP Omen 30L is one of the best-looking gaming PCs on the market. It's quiet and runs games beautifully, with fluid frame rates. It can handle just about everything, from word-processing and music to graphic design and video playback. There are plenty of ports, including a single USB-C port on the back of the machine.

Reviewers from Tomshardware have found the following[***]:
HP's Omen 25L and 30L desktop lineup got a design refresh, along with some improved cooling back in May. Despite being a much larger company than much of its competition in the custom gaming desktop realm, HP's biggest problem here seems to be stock issues. The Omen faces its most direct challenge in our desktop battle with the iBuypower RDY IWBG207.

Pros[**]
  • Sleek, minimalist design
  • High-quality build quality
  • Solid CPU performance
Cons[**]
  • CPU cooling could be better
  • Fan doesn't sync with other systems
