Add the Philips Hue Play HDMI Sync Box?

Adding the Philips Hue Play HDMI Sync Box, allows the lights to change in sync with your AVR or Sky Box or Bluray player and so on.
I would love it if you could also test the Sync Box, and also compare and contrast these Light Bars versus Philips Hue Light Strips?

Sync box

We've contacted Philips to see if that device is sold in New Zealand, and if so we'll consider getting one to add to this review.

21st Century decadence

Just what has been missing from my life. Fine grained control over the quality of light in my home.

Philips Ambi light

Perhaps not as effective like the Hue Play Light Bars, but the newest Philips tv's with built-in Ambi lights offer the same effects. Surely a more decorative surrounding than just a screen. Even the pictures in the screen of the actual series are fantastic/realistic.
