This review is from: NZXT CB-43SATA 7.87" 4-Pin Molex to 3 SATA Cable
Pros: The individual sleeves are nice and give the computer a clean look.
Cons: The sleeves were very stiff. So stiff that it ended up cracking the female that was on my hard drive.
Other Thoughts: If word comes out that they are more flexible, pick one of these up.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Cyborg MCB43521N002/04/1 amBX Gaming Lights US
Pros: When I first saw these, they looked great. I did a lot of research to see if this was something I wanted to buy. In researching I had learned that 1 set wasn't going to give you the best effect and that most user uploaded videos could not reproduce the experience. Eager to see it for myself and hoping to get the best experience I bought 3 sets. Overall I like the idea behind these lights. Cyborg did a great job in producing a such discrete unit. If I would go for an amBX light unit it would be this.
Cons: I could not be more disappointed with this purchase. Understandable, not all applications or games will work perfectly with this product as they were not designed to take advantage of it. To remedy this product relies on amBX software to create the amBX effects. As a result the amBX experience is not perfect, which is understandable. What I don't understand I how come this software has to be so terrible. There is a delay in the light response that really takes away from the ambient experience. The fact that you need multiple units to get more diverse results is unavoidable and becomes problematic when you have pay so much to get so little. It is a shame that these lights rely on amBX software to work, to review one is to review both. I would not recommend these for anything beyond watching movies and at that, prepare to have wires everywhere. 1 USB and 1 Power per light. Which means that the more sets you have the cables you'll have. One last thing, you need 1 USB port per light
Other Thoughts: 3 Eggs.
It is a great design.
But does not operate in a way to justify the cost.
I used this with:
Windows Media Player.
I really wanted to like these and to be honest I would if they were far cheaper. I wouldn't buy these unless they were selling for around $50 a set. I would also refrain form buying these until then.
I was able to set the lights to match the color of my PC's lights, I really liked that.
On a side note, these lights add to your CPU load. Be cautious if you already having issue with that. (This was ran on a i7-2600)
This product requires white walls and needs to be placed close to these walls. The product does not come with wall mounts either.
Consider purchasing a USB hub for multiple sets.
I am considering returning these.
Sorry Cyborg, I really like your products. The support for these should offend you.
