Fun. You have to really realize what you're getting to not be disappointed. Not life changing, but it is definitely interesting

  • Summary: My best friend/roommate has these and I've had the pleasure of trying them out with several games. My favorite game to to play while using them was FarCry 3. When you're driving a vehicle on the beach/tropical road, and the wind from the desktop fans is blowing in your hair, it's really really easy to get lost in the game. That aspect is great. Mist would be an interesting addition... and smells! But that's gonna be a while, right? Some Willy Wonka stuff right there.

So sad these are discontinued

  • Summary: So I went a bit overboard with these kits. Was lucky enough to get my first set for free, then a second speaker kit and 2 additional light kits on Woot when they were getting cleared out....so a total of 4 kits for ~$200 I love them, although one of my control units did see it's green and blue LED controllers burn out. The default support isn't great, but there are some 3rd party programs out there (Aurora synethesia) that work great for ambient screen or audio.

Gaming Experience at the Next Level!

  • Summary: Gaming on my pc is even more immersive now with games that support the ambx backlight, fan, and rumble effects. Even games that don't have built in ambx support utilize the ambient backlight effect very convincingly. On top of all the extra gaming effects, this is a REALLY solid set of speakers. I upgraded from a 50w Logitech 2.1 setup to this, and WOW! 160 watts blew my old speakers out of the water!

Definitely cool, could use more generic support though

  • Summary: The feeling of gaming with this thing is really enhanced when you're playing something that has full support. Games without support don't do anything, unfortunately. I wish this would do some simple hooks into the underlying graphics interface for Windows, and detect when a game is using 3d acceleration, and appropriately sample the data passing through it to produce at least a generic complement of lighting.

Great ambient peripheral for in-game with some catches

  • Summary: I first saw the amBX in early 2007, I had a mixed reaction to seeing it play. Great ideas take some time to mature and while this is still in infancy, there is maturity here enough to bring it into your home if you are willing. The light effectss are hands-down fantastic. There is integration in games (even some without native support).

  • Excerpt: Hallo ! Ich bin im Moment dabei, mir einen komplett neuen PC zusammen zustellen, da mein alter Laptop den Geist aufgegeben hat. Was ist das Philips SGC5103BD ? Gute Frage! Neben dem 2.1 Soundsystem , bietet die Anlage noch das berühmte Ambilight was man von den Philips Flachbild - TV - Geräten her kennt. Das Ambilight ist eine Hintergrund Beleuchtung, welche sich mit dem Bild am Bildschrim ändert. Hat man z.B.
