  • The OMEN 25i Gaming Monitor had to solve several problems. When the monitor redraws too slowly, it hurts the game experience. The screen must be big and bright enough to prevent eye strain. Separately, gamers use a keyboard differently than productivity users. They tend to shift the keyboard at a 45º angle so they have more space for their mouse, and keep their wrists straight while using the keys. The team delivered a fresh low-cost design. Research and feedback indicated the need for improved VESA mounting, a more reliable stand and cable routing, and an improved front-of-screen performance.

  • The OMEN 25i Gaming Monitor is big enough to immerse a player in the game. It uses a low-haze display for reduced glare to prevent eye strain. The stand structure was changed to make it more robust and stable, reducing monitor wobble for even the most enthusiastic gamers. Cable routing was integrated into the stand column's form, making it intuitive and more reliable than the first generation's solution. Knowing that gamers turn the keyboard to the side for ergonomics meant creating a diamond-shaped base, so the keyboard rests at the correct angle.

  • The OMEN 25i gaming display has a big impact commercially on HP's OMEN gaming business, because it's one of the first monitors in the world that takes the needs of the enthusiast into account. The 25i needed to replace our best selling gaming display. Every feature was derived from customer research and feedback. Our customers want their devices to work perfectly and not spend a lot of time setting up or dealing with compatibility issues. We answered by making the OMEN 25i simple to assemble out of the box without tools and ready to game right away.

  • The base of the monitor retains the diamond shape that allows gives games the desk space to position the keyboard at a 45-degree angle. The new OMEN logo printed on the base demonstrates the new OMEN branding in a subtle way, ensuring that the customer can focus on gaming without distractions. A three-sided borderless IPS panel was selected enabling far better viewing angles, improved contrast and color gamut, an improved 165Hz refresh rate, and 1ms response times.
