We will not talk badly about any product and we do not claim to be an expert on anyone else's product. I can simply provide you with facts and let you the end consumer decide what works best for you.
The GAEMS G155 has a 155.5" HD LED monitor while the Hori is an 11.6" I believe and I am not sure if it is LED or not. The GAEMS G155 works with both PS3 and Xbox 360 while the Hori is built for one device only. The GAEMS G155 has a pair fo component stereo speakers with a patented case design to optimize the gaming expereince to the end user. I know the Hori has speakers, but quality, design and sound preference of the user are all unknown to me.
The GAEMS G155 also offers something Hori does not. Protection to the monitor, the speakers, the console and all the gear internally. GAEMS G155 also provides space to carry all required cables, power supplies and controllers needed for a complete experience without needing a carrying bag, backpack or cardboard box. After all, would you trust the protection of your $400 PS3 Slim to a 10 cent cardboard box? I would not.
Tx John, I'm sold. Just placed the order 1 minute ago. I travel a lot in between Asia and USA so this is a better choice for me since everything comes in 1 piece versus components here and there. It is more expensive but the bigger screen and the convenience are what convinced me. thanks.
So that you are aware our monitor much like the PS3 works well everywhere. I presume you will travel with the appropriate adapters (NA is 110 Europe and Asia is 220). If not make sure you get one. GAEMS G155 power adapters are currently built with the ability to simply swap out the component end that plugs into the power source allowing the user to game around the world. Someday we hope console manufacturers will do the same for their products.
I'm really interested in your product. But just need some clarifications , I also travel a lot . This is what i need clarification on :
1- The unit needs AC power ? if so , does it accept both 110 and 220 ? 2- If it doesn't need AC power i.e. has batteries , how do you power the console ? I'm thinking mega portability i.e. outdoors :) .
The GAEMS G155 is A/C power and works with 110/v and 220/v. There are no batteries at this point, consoles demand too many amps at startup and drain current battery technology too quickly. Not to mention the weight.
I actually use a DC/AC adapter in my SUV for tailgating parties, camping and other outdoor activities.
Watch how the GAEMS cases are used in the new movie "N00bz" coming to theaters in October. Not only is the movie hysterical, the gamers portrayed in the movie need to game ANYWHERE!
GAEMS does have great interest in supporting the PS3 original design. Please enjoy the G155 with your Xbox 360, but keep your eyes open for a GAEMS accessory option that may soon allow you to enjoy your PS3 original with it as well!
I have heard of people using 175-200W inverters, but I think that is too small and you risk being underpowered. I recommend that you use a minimum of 250W and I am the master of overkill so I use an 1100W. Here are the Amazon links to a couple good options. I have the power bright in my SUV, but the Belkin should save money and provide adequate power.
Yes it does. I am not very electrically inclined and I was afraid of damaging the G155 or my reach xbox. Its funny because I was also looking at the power bright as well. Thank you very much. I love the G155 and i appreciate your quick responses to the many people that also love the product. I hope to head up north and visit your offices sometime if possible. Keep up the great work.
I was just wondering if you have noticed any long term affects on your equipment because its a "modified sine inverter" as opposed to a "pure sine inverter". I have just purchased the 20 inch g155 and would like to have a setup for my car. I just want to make sure I purchase the correct inverter so I don't burn up my ps3 or 360. Any suggestions/advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
Apologies for the late reply. I am not certain of the impact of the Modified Sine Wave inverter on the Xbox or PS3. I have not worked with any that I am familiar with. I tend to overspend on electrical and electronics to be safe. I know the Pure Sine Inverters are a bit more money, but I tend to go with the more complex inverters.
