NZXT HUE 2 Ambient RGB Lighting Kit Review

If you are a PC enthusiast besides your actual PC build the other thing you really take pride in is your PC setup. You want a nice clean desk setup, but what can you do to add a little bling? One of the most common things to do is add some RGB strips, either to your desk or the back of your monitor. NZXT has recently released their HUE 2 Ambient RGB Lighting Kit, which is made to fully immerse you in your favorite game or movie, all while adding that much needed bling to your setup too! These are not just ordinary RGB strips, they are controlled via NZXT’s CAM software and offer an ambient mode where they react to what is going on, on your screen in real time! Let’s take a look…

Flipping over to the back there is quite a lot of detail on the kit and NZXT’s CAM software.

Getting everything out of the box we have the RGB strips, controller, USB cable, power cable, two RGB extensions, two RGB angle connectors, cleaning wipes, and a user’s guide. NZXT offers the kit in two different versions. One for 21-25 and 34-35-inch displays that comes with 2x 300mm, 4x 250mm, and 2x 200mm strips. And a second for 26-32-inch screens that comes with 4x 300mm and 4x 250mm strips.

The controller itself is pretty decently sized. All of the connections are on the bottom edge. They include two RGB connections, microUSB, and power.
