These are GREAT , I have a set and wouldn't be without it now.
Best price I have EVER seen this at, so be quick!
This went over 400 degrees 3 months ago and that was at £24.99!
The pack I bought (£24.99 from TKmaxx) had toca3 in, but wouldn't run on windows 7(because of the secure rom)
This is a little fiddly to set up on windows 7, but well worth it!
If you are doing it on Windows 7 read the website info first, as you have to 'make' a legacy driver for it manually - it does explain how but READ IT before doing it or you'll have problems!
Look here for help on installation - http://www.ambx.com/wiki/Installation

See the game
With amBX
Discover the new way to experience the full force of PC games with amBX peripherals that take the game beyond the screen. Light effects synch with the game and literally bring it into the room.


Light to max your game
Multiple RGB LEDs deliver over 16 million colours
Using 16 million colours, the synchronised lighting system intensifies the gaming experience, casting co-ordinated lighting around the gamers viewing space. The screen is no longer the barrier between gamer and the action.


Beyond gaming
Light show with digital music
amBX is also about more than games. If it's time to party or unwind, the system responds to music and floods the room with a stunning coordinated light show. Alternatively consumers can change the mood of any room with a single colour or series of lighting effects. Or, set their own lighting sequences with the speed, colour and intensity controls in the easy-to-use interactive software.

Mood lighting
Be bold and create your own lighting creations with a palette of over 16 million colours. Create unique lighting designs that suit your mood or entertainment. Combine your lighting choice with music and you have your very own light show in the privacy of your own home.


Connect, install and play
Plug and play USB interface
An easy-to-use configuration manager enables a stress free set up. Simply indicate where you've placed the products around your room and the configuration manager will set the perfect level for each product.

Presets and advanced controls
Light, sound, the amBX fans and rumble pad are all controlled by the simple to use pop up control. It even offers a series of preset options. The more adventurous can customise the settings to create a bespoke system. Tune and balance sound and light to your specific needs to create the optimum experience for any room.

Includes games
amBX enabled game titles ready to play.

Great price, I'm really pleased with mine.
Wonder what games it ships with... I'm still trying to resolve the whole ebuyer debacle over Flashpoint Dragon Rising.

I love mine too, and it's great to have on all the time!
I'm not sure, like I say I got toca3, but if you have win7 DO NOT install it lol! (secu rom won't let it run)
I had a mare getting rid of the secu rom, had to download a special 'removal tool' as it would error every time I started up the PC!

TYVM! You won't be sorry you bought this! :thumbsup:

Okay. It's a sound system with lighting & air affects??... but this is a 'starter kit' containing lights only??
If so it seems a fair price..

stooopid question alert: can you use this with a PS3?

No as stated above

[QUOTE=martinelsen]Even used as ambient lighting for playing music, this has to be an excellent deal, surely?

There's no sound as you say, but the light effects from this are well worth the money, and at this price is a steal imho! Anyway, If anyone here is a gamer they probably have much better sound systems already than the 'full' set would give you, I must admit I fancy buying the 'fans' add on though!, would be 'cool' in games , literally!

You never know! - taken from a mod at the ambx forum -
'We are working on console solutions, but these are realistically for next year.

It's something we are working very hard on but there are a lot of steps to complete.'

Tempted, but really don't need it!

Hi, awesome price :thumbsup: I just ordered these.. :-D hope its worth it as im not a PC gamer.. you mentioned there was a problem installing some software for these to work on windows 7. How did you find a way around because im also on windows 7?

Thanks and a good find.. always wanted these. :-D

#23
forigve me, these are just lights not speakers?
#24
Showing up as £27 for me.
#25
showing as £27.94 now
#26
I have some questions about this, does it use USB to power it all? Also how is the light coming from behind the monitor? I don't know if I have space behind my monitor to put anything there. Finally looking at the list of supported games: http://www.ambx.com/wiki/List_of_compatible_games I can see you don't need to patch your games to get this to work properly, is that correct?
#27
£18.99 for me.
#28
... oh, thats from a seller, guess that means its discontinued?

Just lights and no speakers. Thats right
#31
Out of stock I think now. The £27.94 is a play trade seller.
#32
back up to £27.94 and not actually sold by play.com but another company. Shame it didnt last long, needs expired, also you all forgot the new TCB deal!
#33
I just had the page open for 18.99 and then refreshed to see £27.94.

Booo!

Can you still use them through a gaming headset?

This only takes up one of your USB ports. You can connect any other accessory to your gaming PC and still use this. No Problem.
#37
No longer available??

All I'm seeing is a set for £28 from DDLDirect

They connect via USB and are controlled by software rather than using the soundcard.
#39
