    Doesn't look too impressive to me.

    On a completely unrelated note CES has a horrible colour scheme.

    I quite like the look of it and it doesn't seem too expensive to have a punt on the basic package if some of the compatible games are worth it.

    However doubtful you are, know that I was ten times more doubtful up until last September.

    But my attitude changed somewhat after I attended the Berlin Radio show (IFA) and saw that MANY makers of TV sets were displaying their flat-panels backlit.

    Now, they wouldn't go to all the trouble and expense unless they thought that it makes the pictures on the sets look better, so I think there definitely does have to be something to this arrangement, though that doesn't necessarily mean that the various Philips systems are worthwhile.

    But, I tend to think that they should not be dismissed out of hand (as I'd pretty much done myself before September).

    I love Philips Ambilight TVs, the result of that effect is so fantastic that you don't even notice it until you pay attention to it. The problem is the price for a decent set, even the expensive ones aren't very good quality.

    The thought of having the system available for my PC is very exciting but then I am overexcitable. Looking at Philips amBX site it appears as though they're going to get DVDs released with amBX scripts included as well, I at first assumed that would just be the colour system but if it includes the fans as well that could be very interesting.

    If they release a full set that is compatible with both PC and DVD/BR/HDDVD systems and it's at least 5.1 (it only seems to be 2.1 at the moment) and it's got some decent support then it will be worth the money. I want one now.
    cheers
