Product on Review: NZXT HUE 2 Ambient RGB Lighting Kit
Street Price: GBP £89.99 / USD $99.99
Back in November, NZXT invited us to take a look at their HUE 2 RGB Lighting Kit, this could be used to give new life to old cases or add even more RGB to your already-RGB-laden chassis. Today we examine the HUE 2 Ambient RGB Lighting Kit which aims to illuminate the walls behind your monitor to expand your viewing experience in real-time.
You may have already seen this kind of technology employed on television sets, particularly those under the Philips Ambilight umbrella, but we’re yet to see a gaming monitor that allows such immersion. The kit is available for a range of different monitor sizes, supporting up to 35” Ultrawides (21:9) or 32” Widescreens (16:9).
Priced at £89.99 in the UK and $99.99 in the US, it’s certainly more expensive than a cheap set of RGB LEDs from a well-known auction site, but does the real-time illumination really make that much difference when gaming or watching films? Let’s find out.
