      These were recommended by a family member and were perfect to replace the can light over the dining room table. I had tried many different bulbs (CFL and LED) but often returned them due to odd colors and even the ones that claimed to be dimmable necer worked quite right. I needed something to replace the extremely hot incandescent bulbs and this was finally the solution! As it states, these don't work with a dimmer switch but had that changed out in 5 minutes and these worked beautifully! With Other bulbs the color never matched that of incandecent, but these allow you to pick any color you wish and at any brightness! The app was a bit confusing at first but got a handle on it now. The scenes and experiences are neat but wish it had a few pre programmed. The ability to choose colors is awesome, but it would be convienient to have pre programmed colors that match the K value/wattage of bulbs on the market, just to make setting them up easier. Excellent bulb, will definitely get more in the future.

      Particularly awful mobile app

      The unit looks great and there's so much potential here. I truly wanted this to work for me. I purchased four of them for my entry hall and had to deal with terminal connectivity issues over 40 minutes. I tried to get these to work with my samsung S7, apple iPhone 6, and apple iPhone 6s. The app really couldn't maintain any kind of reliable connection among the four bulbs. Could sometimes connect to one of them, got it work with 2 once, and that's about it. Truly awful app, truly unreliable connections. I was actually only hoping to program them up once and sort of let them be, but these just didn't work well enough to even do that. They are definitely bright enough and do have some wonderful colors. Just wish they actually worked. Great Best Buy return service and helpful staff.

      Fast setup right out of the box. As simple as changing a lightbulb and downloading a free app. *note if you purchased more than one it's best to set them up one at time. I picked up four of them for my living room all on the same switch, And had a little issue connecting to one of the four. It was fixed by resetting the bulb it self. With the lights on unscrewing the one with the issue in till it lost power and screwing it back in. Doing this 5 times slowly resets the light and I was able to connect. The Good. Fast setup. Free app. Great color selections. The bad. When on the brightest setting and the color white the lights flicker very bad. All 4 of mine. A little pricey. One of mine makes a bad buzzing sound when on the brightest setting of any color. But BestBuy has a great return policy, So i will exchange that one soon. The app needs some work. (They are working on an update)

      The pros: The bulbs are plenty bright. The Bluetooth mesh is nice. No need to attache to a Wifi network. Solid build quality. Ap is pretty easy to use. The improvements: Ap stability needs to be improve. And more "Fun" modes like color fade programs and music control - The ap has a music control but it requires that you use the ap player which limits you to local music content. They need to upgrade this to use the microphone so that any music being played in the house can control the bulbs. After all, what's the point in having these really cool light bulbs in your house if you aren't going to use them for parties? I can't recommend until they improve the music control and color fades. This is simple ap stuff. They should just do it.

      Hands down the coolest led bulb you can get. With pre set modes for regular lighting like sunrise or sunset to party mode or aurora. Play to the beats of your music millions of color choices. Real black light effects ect.. only problem is it discinnects all the time after you first turn on the app. Next it has problems setting schedules. Still unable to connect to Alexa which was a big upset. But this light still outweighs all the hopefully soon to be fixed app errors. Also has two separate apps. Overall effect 5.5 power 5.5 choices 5.5 app functionality 3.5 for connect issues. Tried on 3 different phones so I know it's not just me. Def a 4.6 out of 5 rating.

      Great bulbs

      I love my ilumi bulbs! I started with just one bulb and that was awesome. However, after getting a few more it's really transformed my living room! First, we've loved the ability to get our perfect shade of "white" lighting (we found our standard bulbs to often be too yellow or too blue -- and the ability to adjust these ilumi bulbs has allowed us to pick the hue that we think is just right). Secondly, the simplicity of being able to control lights from my cell phone is just greatness! And perhaps the coolest thing is being able to adjust color for any situation and the use of the various features on the ilumi app (such as the music sync). Definitely recommend.

      Not bad

      I purchased this light to be used over my shower and so far I like it. For the price it's not bad. Build quality and brightness are good, my only complaint would be the mobile app. Connectivity takes a little time (~30 seconds) after turning the light on and the color transitions are not as smooth nor instant as I hoped. I purchased the Playbulb LED strip and have a much better interaction with that device over this but I needed the BR 30 bulb. There is an update that has been announced for the App by ilumi and as far as I know it is "Coming Soon" at this point. I look forward to the update and hope it smooths out the rough edges with the app. If you're looking for one light I think this is a good product. If you plan on adding multiple lights together I would wait or try the Lifx brand.

      I purchased three of these bulbs because they announced the use of bluetooth technology. Two of the features advertised did not work at all within new app. for the price they should be fully programable and not limit you to one music app to work with music feature. I'm hoping they fix this soon. I returned the three bulbs for that reason. so not really musics best friend...It also did not have the detect presence feature and for those two reasons I would never buy these bulbs for $59.99ea... ilumi needs to produce an app that says what product advertises.
