Sleek & Stylish Design

When we open the laptop, the LED-backlit keyboard alongside four zones of customizable backlight system reflects the perfect gaming vibe.

Comfortable Keyboard & Touchpad

The laptop comes with a compact and comfortable keyboard which helps users to work for extended hours. The keyboard delivers a seamless typing experience. Key travel is generous and facilitates a fluid and comfortable typing experience. The transparent keycap edges allow RGB lights to shine through beautifully, creating an eye-catching effect.

The trackpad doesn’t seem to be a glass top, rather a rougher texture is there. However, while working on the OMEN Transcend 14 at our office, we found it performing quite smoothly. 


The HP OMEN Transcend 14 features HP True Vision 1080p FHD IR camera that delivers decent video quality during streaming sessions or video calls. Alongside, temporal noise reduction technology helps minimize noise, supporting enhanced art effect capture in low light as well.  The integrated dual-array digital microphones capture audio perfectly, while picking up voice clearly from both sides and reducing background noise significantly. During gameplay, recording basic content, and facilitating virtual meetings, the conjunction of HP True Vision 1080p FHD IR camera and temporal noise reduction technology gave us a fluid experience during the testing of this gaming laptop with our experts.

Alongside, SDR- 400 nits of brightness and HDR- 500 nits and a Contrast Ratio of 1,000,000:1 delivers an eye-pleasing visual experience.
