Editorial Reviews

Now in HD! So Don't Feed the Fish.

As far as aquarium DVDs go, it just doesn't get any better than Ambient Water: The Ultimate Video Aquarium DVD. It boasts crystal clear salt and freshwater aquariums packaged in an easy to carry (and care for) DVD. The visual quality truly is remarkable.

Each of the 10 aquarium scenes are loopable which means you can set the DVD up and leave it running all day. Four of the aquariums are 30 minutes long and six of them are 10 minutes long. Features include 5.1 surround sound, aquarium sound effects (bubbles and such), and relaxation music.

A neat feature is the ability to match up any of the aquariums with any of the sound tracks. What’s cool about this DVD is that it truly utilizes the DVD format. The playlist feature allows you to quickly jump in and watch all of the saltwater tanks, all of the freshwater tanks, or all tanks in a continuous loop. And yes, you create your own custom playlists, which is a lot of fun.

1.0 out of 5 stars Ambient Water:Ultimate disappointment August 16, 2006
I bought this along with another virtual aquarium hoping to show off my 37in hd flatpanel. The only responses I got from showing it off was "Did you pay money for that?"

It looks like someone mounted a camcorder next to a couple aquariums at the local pet store and tried to cash in. There is nothing HD about this dvd, in fact I've seen independent features with better video quality than this.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty nice aquarium DVD December 15, 2006
Verified Purchase
This DVD isn't perfect, but it's pretty nice. "Shot in HD" doesn't mean it PLAYS in HD, as this is not an HD-DVD or Blu-Ray disc. It looks good on my 40" LCD TV playing in an upscaling DVD player.

The scenes have a good variety of fish in attractive tanks. Some buyers have complained that the fish are frighteningly large on some of these aquarium DVDs. I did not find this to be the case with this DVD, but I "only" have a 40" screen. Perhaps the buyers who complained about this have frighteningly large TVs.

The sound is pleasant on the reef or saltwater settings. The freshwater tank setting sounds a bit too much like my toddler blowing bubbles in a juicebox for my enjoyment. I haven't even listened to the music setting. If I want to hear music while I play this DVD, I'll play something I like.

This is not a feature film or an IMAX documentary. It is ambience. If I had the time or inclination to maintain a beautiful aquarium, I would want it to look just like one of the several scenes I liked on this disc. If you stare at the screen and try to find some pixelation on a rapidly moving fish tail, you might find some. Stop finding fault and enjoy the fish show in your hassle free aquarium!

1.0 out of 5 stars EXTREMELY DECIEVING!!! December 25, 2006
DO NOT BUY THIS DVD if you plan on recieving a beautiful HD image, because as amazing as you think it will appear, it simply won't look as incredible as it could...because it is still a regular DVD. DVD's can only go up to 480p resolution which is NOT HD. it could have been shot on HD, it could have been shot on beautiful 35mm even(better than HD digital) and it still will look the same as a regular dvd because DVD's cannot and will not ever be able to produce resultions of up to 720p 1080i-p (these are HD resolutions). So for them to put "Shot in HD" all over the cover, and to make people think that they're going to recieve beatiful images is just crap. You want a real fish tank image, go buy a real one, or get the HD-DVD aquarium dvd, that actually shows 720p-1080i image quality with appearently better footage anyway. Just make sure you got a HD-DVD player before you do!

2.0 out of 5 stars Not HD, its misleading January 25, 2006
By Chris
Notice how it only says "shot in hd"? Anything put on film is shot in HD. I expected much more. The tank scenes are nowhere near HD. If the novelty means enough to you, buy it. I planned on using it for parties, but have not because of the poor quality.

4.0 out of 5 stars Kids love for parties. May 10, 2007
By Ryan
These are closeups of fish tanks. They loop and have relaxing water sounds or music if you choose. Great for turning your widescreen TV into an aquarium. Gotta warn you though, your kids will make you watch the lobster one over and over again.

1.0 out of 5 stars Wishy - Washy images January 11, 2007
This program looked nice as advertised. However, when I ran the program, the movie clips were of low resolution. The color was all washed out, and the images blurry and overall cyan colored. Was disappointed with this program, called the manufacturer, and was told it was supposed to be shown on a big screen television. I have a high resolution 21" computer screen, and 25" television screen, it was not very nice to look at on either, let alone the annoying bubble sounds in the background, which cause you to lower the volume after awhile. Not at all what I thought it should be. Take it from me, I'd keep away from this program. It should be in the racks in a dollar store!

4.0 out of 5 stars Quiets the voices in my head... April 24, 2006
By d
Verified Purchase
I think this is a great product for what it is. I have category 5 ADD so when I work from home, too much quiet distracts me. On the other hand, too much noise distracts me, as well. If i fire up the cable, I get nothing done. If i turn the tube off, I feel too isolated & again, nothing. This CD is the perfect productivity tool... for me, at any rate... occupies the subconscious, quiets the voices & provides balance. My new fish buddies are rad.

3.0 out of 5 stars Next best thing.... March 27, 2008
By tlr
Verified Purchase
I work in a 9-1-1 center and bought the video for the call-takers/dispatchers to enjoy. Since we are surrounded by computers we of course can't have a real aquarium near the consoles. I thought this was the next best thing. Everyone seems to enjoy it. The sound quality varies with each selection. On some you will have to keep the volume very high on the TV to hear the "bubbles." Since we keep the TV on mute that is not a major concern for us. The tanks that are the most popular are the ones that have the most active fish.We like the "loop" function that allows the same "tank" to play over and over.The "play all" feature is nice also.

3.0 out of 5 stars Pretty
It was a pretty thought but it would have been nicer to see more colorful aquariums or at least more to choose from.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not exactly what I'd expected, but, then again...
Not really sure what I expected, guess I just wanted a really fun variety of 'tanks' to choose from. 3 of these look almost identical, one is a bit boring looking and too green. Read more
