    I will tell you on sunday :)

    I have bought mine 1150€ and added 8go Ram + 1 x 970Evo SSD. For a total a 1300€ laptop. And I can bet nothing is equal to these performances and design into the market today. Even if I haven't tested it yet, but on paper it's good :)

    Regarding repaste, why LM doesn't affect to much this laptop ? (according to the video at the beggining)

    Guys, I've got 60Hz panel swapped out with BOE one. BOE panel is the one that installed into Xiaomi gaming notebook with 72% NTSC coverage. But replacing it is the pain. Plastic around the screen is held with double sided tape and as Bob said you will compromise integrity of your laptop lid anyway. Other and a lot more serious problem is that screen itself adhered to the lid with very strong adhesive. You can pull it off and there is the description about that in HP service manual, but you have high risk of damaging the panel itself. After you've removed the panel, you'll need to place another adhesive into the lid to make panel sit there. There are no screws holding the panel in place. Then you'll need to find double sided tape to place it on the inside of panel front cover. At the end of the day I am happy with result, but do not recommend to do that for everyone.
    NOTE. Plastic on the front cover is thin and I've managed to melt and deform(you can see it in left lower corner at the photo) it while I was heating it with the gun, so be very careful about that.

    nice job.

    Regarding my backlight bleeding, what do you recommend ? It's in the bottom of the screen...

    thanks

    Nothing really. Just live with it or if it's intolerable just return it( if you're still within return period). Mine have bleed too. I've just got used to it.

    @Tim4, perhaps you could order a new front bezel from HP for not too much to fix that bend?

    BUYERS BEWARE - NEW OMEN 15T-DC0xx CTO (Customer Order) directly from HP (US) Store doesn't have RGB backlight feature!

    I placed my order on Sep 4, 2018, and it was estimated to arrive on Sep 20, 2018. However, HP did an excellent job to deliver it to me on Sep 13 at 9 a.m.
    My spec:
    • OMEN by HP - 15t Laptop
    • 1 TB 7200 rpm SATA; 128 GB PCIe® NVMe™ M.2 SSD
    • Full-size backlit keyboard with numeric keypad and N-Key Rollover (Dragon Red Legend
    • 16 GB DDR4-2666 SDRAM (1x16GB)
    • Intel® 802.11b/g/n/ac (2x2) Wi-Fi® and Bluetooth® 5 Combo(MU-MIMO supported)
    • 15.6" diagonal FHD 144 Hz IPS anti-glare micro-edge WLED-backlit (1920 x 1080)
    • Windows 10 Home 64
    • No Optane
    • HP Wide Vision HD Camera with Dual digital microphone
    • 4-cell, 70 Wh Li-ion polymer
    • Intel® Core™ i7-8750H (2.2 GHz, up to 4.1 GHz, 9 MB cache, 6 cores)+NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 1070 with Max-Q design(8GB GDDR5)
    I wanted to get a better screen and GPU so I did a customer order from HP without knowing they would withdraw the RGB feature on my product.
    I have tried to update and re-install the HP Omen Command Center but the result is the same: No lightning tab in the HP Omen Command Center.

    HP Support will only provide the answer: Your product model does not support RGB lightning and link you to this document: https://support.hp.com/us-en/produc...pc/20329817/model/21869533/document/c05387497 to clarify the 15-DC model doesn't have RGB lights feature (which is extremely weird due to both Amazon and Microcenter are selling the 15-DC model with RGB option)

    Please beware!

    I purchased this laptop only around $1200 only.
    Tips:
    25% discount code - 25GAMER when you order
    $150-$200 credit bonus from new credit card
    6% to 10% off HP Gift card from raise.com or retailmenot.com

    Hi, I think the 4 zone rgb lighting only comes with the white lettered key option. The red key version ( Dragon Red) is 2 zone with a red only backlight. I came to this conclusion after reading the tables/ feature options in the service manual. There is the pdf link on a hp support page https://support.hp.com/us-en/product/omen-by-hp-15-dc0000-laptop-pc/20329817/manuals . See the PDF "OMEN by HP 15 Laptop PC - Maintenance and Service Guide" page 17...

    Full-size backlit 3-coat paint island-style keyboard with numeric key pad, 2-zone lighting, Dragon Red with red backlight

    Full-size backlit 3-coat paint island-style keyboard with numeric key pad, 4-zone lighting, white with RGB backlight

    Mine will arrive late next week. I ordered the white lettering version of the keyboard, so I will post back to confirm.

    Also thanks to everyone in the thread for reviews and info about this laptop.

    I do hope yours will arrive with the 4 zone RGB lightning. I contacted the support 3 times: 1st time with the Sale representative, 2nd and 3rd with Tech Support they both told me CTO 15T model does not have this feature which is sad. Please let me know about your OMEN when it arrives. If you do have it, I'll return my immediately for a full refund and order the one with the white keyboard!

    Got it "fixed" a bit. Heated up with the gun and bend it a little back. Looks OK. At the end of the day, I am looking at the screen not bezel =)
