    Good, but has limitations

    I'm torn on how to rate this product. From a performance standpoint, I give it five stars so far considering I have only had it in place for a week or two. The lights are very bright and do a good job of lighting up the space (whites and colors look great to me). I used one of these strips above a bay window on a vaulted ceiling. The lights stuck well to the ceiling (so far at least) and are bright enough for me to not have to worry about going to all of the trouble and expense to retrofit canned lights into the same space. I pared these lights with one of the new Philips wall dimmer switches, which has worked very well. The lights are definitely a five star product if you are installing the lights in a straight line. Whether it's across the top of kitchen cabinets, or a vaulted ceiling, as long as you do not have to worry about any angles, I think you will be very happy with the lights. The lights are not very pleasing to look at if they are visible to the eye. I had intended on putting these in a few more spots such as under the trim below my windows, and in other similar areas. However, my wife did not like this and demanded that I remove the lights from any location where they were not completely hidden. In her defense, I did not really like seeing the visible lights either and we have decided to use them in only locations where they are completely concealed. I don't remove any stars for this since it is as intended I believe. The lights are thin, but you may be surprised by how visible the actual light strand is if you are trying to put these in non traditional areas. The power block that goes into the wall outlet is big, so that may be an issue for you. While it was not great, I was able to burry it behind furniture, so it can't be seen. The cord from the wall outlet to the lights is about six feet, so you may have to worry about hiding the extra cable depending on where you are installing the lights (there is a second smaller brick that the lightstrip plugs into that you will need to deal with as well). From an installation standpoint, I would give this a 3 1/2 star rating. While these strips are very bendable up and down, they do not bend well at all when installing on horizontal angles. You can forget about using these on any 90 degree angles, and 45 degree angles are not much better. You will not be able to easily install the strip flat at the angle if you have to bend the strip to the right, or the left since Philips does not offer any kind of adapter for this (as long as the strip stays straight, you are good). You will need to curve or loop the strip at the angle, which may throw off the light pattern a little in that spot. You will also need to make sure you have plenty of room to hide the curve/loop you need to make to get around the angle, or it will be visible. You will also probably need additional adhesive of some sort to strengthen the area around the loop on both sides of the angle. The few negatives aside, I think this is a great product if it matches what your intended use is. I held off buying the first generation because they were not bright enough, and not long enough. Hopefully Philips will incorporate adapters for future products that allow you to cut and install the strips easily around angles. Other brands already have this, so hopefully Philips will do the same. I also look forward to Philips producing a product like this that can be used outdoors. If these were rated for the outdoors, and could be installed at 90 degree angles, I would love to put these all around my deck out back (among other locations). I have also used the new expansion strips. They connect easily and have the same positives and limitations as mentioned above.

    Really nice color / White light /

    I purchased this product to use for my upper and under cabinet accent and task lighting in my kitchen. The product performs really well and puts out very nice light both in the full color spectrum as well as the typical white light (color temperatures) you would want. Because this tape light also includes a white LED in addition to the RGB (Red, Green, Blue) for mixing full colors, it does a much better job of representing whites when you want whites. Other RGB only tape light products try to produce whites by mixing all three RGB LEDs to "Make" White, but it can always look a little off, either a slight hue of color comes through or it has a pastel blue or green tint to it. Having that extra dedicated white LED makes all the difference. You can still tune your white to a cooler temperature like 4000-5000 K (Kelvin) or something warmer for Relaxing at night that is something closer to an incandesent bulb or candle light in the 3000-2200 K (Kelvin) range. Just know that it will come on and work at a mid-range white temperature, but to tune it or chnage colors you will need to purchase the separate Phillips HUB, and download the app to your phone or tablet. The install is another thing. If you have a short run 80" or less, that is pretty straight forward and has a plug to plug the transformer in, then you could probably do this yourself. If you have to get into the walls and run extension connectors (just wire that doesn't light up), to get around to other cabinets, you have to cut the tape at specific points, (through some solder points), that can be a little fidgety), get third party connectors (litcessory) is a good resource to see what I used, and snap some clips on to solder points. It can take a little bit to make sure all of these custom connection points had good contact and were facing the right way. I ended up having an electrician friend of mine coming over just to help me with a few things. Once you have the HUE Bridge or HUB you can control the lights with a voice assistant like Alexa , Google Home Assistant , or Siri. The app also works well and has some cool features. I really like the way it turned out, and would recommend it to anyone. It can be a bit pricey and just go in knowing some of the installation hurdles you may run into.

    Great option for smart lighting

    I purchased these for over-cabinet accenting, I liked the fact that they can be controlled by wireless via the app, set with routines and scenes. The flexibility of colors is extensive and you can change each as you wish either by pre-programmed scenes or manually with the color palette. This came as a buy 2, get a free bridge offer, and definitely needs to have one. The bridge is a mini hub that sits off an ethernet port (make sure you have one available!) preferably near the lighting area for coverage. When setting up you can specify name/room and which scenes each light belong to (in my case this is simple, but add-ons can all have their place and function, like exteriors). The lights themselves come as a roll with back side tape (I didn't use since they are laying on the cabinets as shown in photo), and are best suited for linear runs, as they do not have a lot of lateral movement. They can be trimmed down and/or added to quite easily. The one glitch I've seen is that for some reason the lights don't always turn on manually after they have run through a routine on a timer. It can be worked around by changing the scene, but I'm not sure of the reason. Setup does take quite a while as it downloads and installs to each strip separately. Overall a good product with customization options.

    I really like these lights!! I have the starter strip and an extension. I ran them up underneath my bar. 2 aspects of these lights that could be improved... The adhesive on the back - the strip is rolled and boxed for shipping. There is a protective peel-off paper to protect the adhesive. This peel off is cut into smaller strips (presumably to make it easier to roll). On my light strip, several of those peel off strips had separated from the adhesive coating, causing the adhesive to be less secure in many spots. Nothing a few thumbtacks couldn't fix for me, but tacks might not be a good solution for everyone... Perhaps roll the adhesive separately and let the consumer apply it themselves. Seems 3M has a double-sided adhesive strip. Also, the power cord is fairly long. I didn't need it so long, so I have a big loop of the excess cord hanging visible below my bar. I don't know if there's really any answer to that 'problem'. I guess I could get creative with a staple gun up underneath the bar... Oh, and of course, as they are applied with an adhesive backing - once they're in place you can't really adjust or reposition them, so you might take a little more time than I did figuring out what you're going to do with them before you just stick them up... Hey! I was excited!! :-) But overall, the enjoyment I'm getting from these lights far outweighs those minor annoyances. I'm going to get more!!

    Sooo much brighter (and better whites)

    Posted

    I picked these up (along with the new dimmer switch) at my local Best Buy Saturday. Apparently, they weren't supposed to be on the shelves yet. Who knew. Anyway, I got this to use as under-cabinet lighting in my kitchen. As anyone who has read the reviews will know, the first-generation strips were not bright enough to use for task lighting in a kitchen. The same can't be said about the new Plus strips. They can provide all of the light you need and more. Before I could set them (and the dimmer) up, I had to update the firmware on the hub. When I added the Plus strip, the app added 3 items, 2 Color Strips and an Extended Color strip. The two Color Strips were not reachable, though, and I later deleted them. This may be a glitch in the software, but didn't interfere with control of the strip. The only negative, at least in comparison to the original strips, is that the power brick is much larger than the first-generation strips. Given that the Plus strip can be extended out to 10 meters, I suppose it must be bigger, but it is something to keep in mind if planning to hide the wires and boxes. I already had two other original light strips in the kitchen. Because of the vast disparity in output, I will probably end up repurposing them and installing new Plus strips instead. These strips are real lighting, not just special effects. When running for pure ambiance, I'm running about 30%. The addition of white LEDs makes a world of difference in the color. The white is warm and brings out the color of the tile backsplash. In fact, I have a new appreciation for my tiling job now that it is no longer in the shadows. As I said, I will probably be adding more of these to my kitchen.

    Great lights and integration!

    Some of you may be skeptical to purchase these lights as there are a plethora of much cheaper and possibly more versatile options available on Amazon etc... This review will mainly tackle this notion. These strips first of all are BRIGHT. Make sure to check each section of these lights when first opening to make sure every part is working. Back to my points, I ended up choosing these over the various other versions mainly because of its interoperability/integration with other devices, Android, and iOS. There are of course cheaper options out there but this is what I believe to be the main selling point of the Phillips Hue. One other thing I have often seen is that these lights technically aren't as versatile as others (at least easily) because they do not have any manufacturer specific L adapters that allow for wrapping around corners. You can also only shorten these lights by cutting at certain areas and there is a bit of distance between them before you can cut some off. Other RGB lights often give you the capability to customize more in this area and with L adapters at that. Still, I do feel that the integration outweighs all of this. The fact that I can control all my lights together and separately with one go to app is great. I also believe that the support that Phillips provides is great and they will only continue updating and adding onto their item roster. Something I also wish this could do is change lights in certain areas of the strip itself (let's say half white and half purple). Even then, I love the light strip and it has truly fulfilled my minimalist style needs and coolness factor. I've integrated probably half my apartment now and since I bought my first kit I have been addicted ever since. Something also to be aware of is that I am not sure myself how long the adhesive is going to be good for though I have reattached it probably 2-3 times and it is still sticking which is great. Pair your purchase with the Geek Squad protection, which by the way is a replacement plan, and you've guaranteed yourself some pretty nice things for the next 3-4 years with no worries. These also have a pretty long lifetime but I still turn mine off if I am not using them. Again, this product is great... give it a try and I guarantee you won't return it back to the store!

    Welcomed improvement for an already great product

    The Hue Lightstrips Plus improve upon the previous generation's hardware in every way that matters. With the addition of the white LED to the existing RGB LEDs the strips can finally produce a myriad of true white light that can range from warm white (like regular incandescent bulbs) to crisp cool white light (like LED or florescent bulbs) as opposed to the previous generation's strips that could only yield a light greenish-ish "white" light. Perhaps my favorite change is the fact that the Plus strips are immensely brighter than their predecessors. I've used my new Plus Strips as upward ceiling facing recessed lighting and they are finally a viable option to illumining the whole room without the need for additional lamps. There previous generation's 120 lumens strips simply can not shine like the new 1600 lumens strips are able to. As far as the RGB LEDs on the strips they are just as responsive and vibrant as before, if not more so thanks to the major increase in lumens. In my opinion they seem like they can more accurately reproduce the colors you choose via the Hue app due to the addition of the white LED. The new ability to extend the Plus Strips up to 33 ft. is also a very welcomed addition as the strips can be used in more applications without the complicated need for additional power adaptors for every 6ft of strip (the maximum length of the old strips.) All in all I am extremely pleased with my new addition to my Phillips Hue collection.

    Much Brighter, Greater Dimable Range

    • My Best Buy® Elite Plus MemberElite Plus Member

    I have many lights--so many that I have two bridges--and I had been reading about this addition to the hue family over the past month and was quite excited about them. They do not disappoint! The light output is very, very bright. I believe, depending on the color temperature, they are a little more than 10x brighter than the original hue lightstrips. They also have a much greater dimming range. The previous generation of lightstripts (and original hue bulbs, blooms, iris) went from off to about a brightness of 30-40 (on a scale of 0-254). That is, setting the brightness to a value of 10 was no different than 40. The hue Lightstrips Plus can be dimmed by quite a bit more to barely on, maybe around 5 on the same brightness scale. I have one of the Lightstrips Plus as a guide along the stairs and the other one runs along the ceiling of the upstairs hallway. I am waiting for the extensions to be available so I can extend them both as desired. I am also looking forward to the new hue bridge to allow Siri to control my lights. The only negative I have found is if you move your eyes quickly, with your field of vision crossing the lightstrips, you can see them flickering. This effect is not visible with the original lightstrips. My guess is they cycle on and off at a slightly slower rate than the original ones allowing it to enter one's visible perception under limited circumstances. If you're looking at them or they're in your periphery, it is not perceivable. They are an excellent addition to the Philips hue family and I will be purchasing additional ones and extensions.

    Nearly Perfect Lighting Solution

    For quite some time now, I have been hooked into the Philips Hue line-up. I started with the starter kits and started out with a bulb or two. It quickly grew from there to having a full Hue ecosystem around the house. This light strip is the latest addition. I initially intended to use this as TV backlighting, but when I spread it on the floor to test it at home, I was amazed by how bright they were and almost thought of using it for some other purpose instead. But I went ahead and use it for TV backlighting and have no regrets. It simply works, is bright, and love the ability to create scenes. The only downside to using this as TV backlighting is that it can be challenging to curve it in the corners, but you can find a way and that would mean leaving a small section of it unglued so you can bend it thru a corner. This lightstrip is a bit pricey though. I had to put it at the back of a 75" television so I had to buy this and an extension kit. Even with two combined, it was just barely enough for it to go up one side, run across the entire length on top, and then come down the other side. It's not enough to completely run across both sides, so you'll have to estimate. But it should be adequate as the strip is very bright at night. Overall, I'm happy with this product and would still buy this if I have to do things over again.

    My favorite lights in the Hue ecosystem, but...

    It's hard to go wrong with anything in the Hue ecosystem - as long as you're content to be locked into it. Albeit usually the more expensive than other options out there, the bulbs always perform great and have great color production. The strips are no exception, but I'll be the first to admit they are really expensive for what they are. Philips definitely collects a premium on every set sold. They are hands down my favorite product in their lineup, and have seemingly endless ways and places to run the them. I currently have 5 strips throughout the house that I've collected over the years and there are still other areas I'd love to keep adding. One drawback I think they need to improve on, is the ability to cut to size... and the following inability to reconnect them. Once you cut the strip to size, the excess becomes garbage (unless you're an expert soldering master). Usually running ballpark $90 per strip, the more you trim off, the even more expensive they become. I hope that future generations of strips introduce a more accommodating way to re-use or re-connect your discarded lengths.

    Great for a Light Strip, Horrible for a Hula Hoop

    This strip makes a great accent light for kitchen cabinets or for backlighting your desk or headboard. I actually bought it for our family's Alaskan Time Share. Mother and Father said I needed to use it as a form of light. I tried to connect both ends and use it as a Hula Hoop but it's far to floppy to really build up any solid gyrations. The use fire or torches is prohibited in the time share because it'll melt your housing, which I found out the hard way :( Ours was an incredible 1bd/0ba 100 sqft ice palace but I was young and going through a pyro phase so long story short...I got hella lit and ruined our family vaca, plus had a soggy bottom for what seemed like weeks. Had I listened to my parents I could've wrapped it around the igloo and illuminated it like the Aurora Borealis but instead I'm not allowed to go on any more trips until I pay off all of the damage. Now I plan on fastening the Philips Hue to an actual Hoop and entering every Hula contest I can this spring break to earn money and to restore my family honor.

    Purchased the light strip kit and extensions. No one at the store told me that I would need the hub, so that was another trip back to Best Buy to purchase this item to make it work. Then, I asked if the strips were dimmable and was told yes, and i did not need to but the dimmer separately. Guess what? I did need the separate dimmer, so yet another trip back to Best Buy to purchase that, too!! Then, when I tried to install, it seems that the Hue Hub really, really likes you to have some of their lights, too!!! But if you call service tech help three times, they can finally tell you how to get the system to work without having any actual lights!! BUT, you have to take apart the already installed light strips and take them to within 3 FEET of the wifi ethernet connection to get them to link! The most ridiculous system I have ever seen! Finally got it all linked up, only to find that the strips do not DIM without the dimmer unit! They do have different settings, but no dimming on the basic Hue app. Final insult is that the sticky back application side doesn't stick to a painted surface. So plan on buying your own double sided tape to make the strip stick down! This system is rinky-dinky. It's a good idea, but very poorly designed and the lights are really bright and nothing like what they show on their photographs. My assessment is: Do Not Buy this. Maybe the lights work ok, but the strips do not!

    As with any Phillips Hue product, this strip does an amazing job with the color combination. The setup was a breeze, the 3M stick bars in the back are strong enough to stick the lights on any surface. I installed mine under the kitchen cabinet. The setup via the HUE app was easier, considering that I already have other HUE bulbs so adding these lights was super easy. Adding these to be controlled by alexa was also intuitive and fast. The only downside I can find is the limited 8' length. I wish Phillips were to come up with a way to add strips in case of needing a longer application. Also conversely to a long application, if I have to cut it shorter, the cut left over becomes unusable, in which case, I think I will double up instead. Other than that. . . hands down a great application.

    I've enjoyed a cheaper set of warm white led lights for a year or so and they worked pretty well but I had them plugged into a smart plug. Im trying to go away from smart plugs as I find that they are about 90% reliable with Alexa and that 10% is really irritating when they do not work. I saw the Hue light strip on sale and made the purchase. As with my other Hue bulbs, you just plug them in, the Hue app recognizes them, and the work! The Alexa app will recognize them but you still have to manually add them to groups and routines. They are nice and bright behind my tv and behind my couch. I usually keep the ones behind my couch at 60% since they are so bright. You can use the color wheel to find almost any color. It would be nice to type in a color code and it just find the exact color (ex. Tennessee Orange). They only negatives are these things are sooooo expensive (Closed to $100 with the extension to place it behind my tv stand), they do not bend well, and they can only show one color at a time. I do recommend them and I am happy with my purchase and the biggest thing is...THEY WORK every time!

    I really like this product, but I do have a few suggestions for improvement. I have these hue light strips in my library on top on my bookcases and more in my kitchen for undercabinet lighting. They work really well in both areas. That being said, my biggest complaint is how large and bulky the power adapter is that plugs into the wall. While I was able to hide one away in a cabinet in the kitchen, another had to placed within sight and it is a huge eye sore. If Philips is able to reduce the size of the power adapter, this would be amazing, especially since there is already another switch that needs to be connected for the WiFi capabilities to work. My only other complaint is price...it's still very expensive for the length of LED lighting that you're receiving. Oh, and one final word of caution, these strips do NOT bend around corners well. I had the darndest time in the corner of my kitchen attaching them to the wall and had to resort to a little hot glue. As long as you're applying them on a relatively flat plane, you should have to worry about this. Even given all of these complaints, I still love these lights. I love being able to control them with Siri or Amazon's Alexa and I also like that I can pair them with a Phillips Hue dimmer switch so they behave like any other ordinary set of lights in my kitchen or library.

    I love this Hue lighting system. I was going to pay an electrician $500+ to install under cabinet lighting in my home. However I saw these lights and figured id give them a try and wouldn't you know they were a breeze to install! Love the fact that I could place the switch anywhere I wanted without worrying about whether the spot was wiring accessible. Love the funky colors! I couldn't believe I installed everything myself in just a couple of hours. The biggest drawback for me is the fact that I do have a plug and wire showing - something I'd hoped to avoid. However with the cost savings and many other features I wouldn't get with a hard wired system, I can live with the plug and six inches of wire showing. I'll just hide it behind a coffee pot! Just make sure to note that if you want to be able to control these lights with your phone, Alexa, Siri, etc. or change the strip to any other colors besides the default white light, you will need to purchase the Hue Bridge and connect it to your router.

    I almost have my entire place lit with Philips Hue. It's a mix of the colored bulbs, the white bulbs for the bathrooms and hallway, the sensors for automating the bathroom and hallways, and then these....my favorite which are the strips. I have them behind all my TVs and TV Stand, as well as this particular strip finished my office, I had a strip behind my computer desk and placed this particular strip behind the monitors. I also use a strip in the kitchen, I placed it out of sight on top of the cabinets, didn't even have to pull the sticky tape off, it just sits up there reflecting up onto the wall and ceiling. It is absolutely incredible the change these can make in your living space. It's also nice to have timers on all the lights as well as knowing they all consume much less energy for your bill. I wish they could bring the price down a bit, but obviously I have purchased them regardless in bits and pieces over time. Highly recommended. Did not give 5 stars because I feel like they could be brighter and I wish they could make the strips bend at an angle, otherwise 4 out of 5 stars.

    HUE Lightstrip Plus Brings Music Every Hour!

    As an early HUE adopter, I started with each bulb variety & the original Lightstrips. This updated Lightstrip is 10X brighter than the original! I have an unusual use for my first 2) Lightstrip Plus: I bought a wall clock that plays music with the internal Clarion System. The light sensor in this clock will not allow the sound to play, because it thinks our Family Room is too dark so it keeps it silenced! So I installed 2) strips on the back of 2) contemporary Pole Lights, so the lights are not seen from the room. They flood the walls with light, and the clock chimes beautiful music every hour! I use the HUE Alarm function to turn the Lightstrip Plus off during the night, and anytime I want silence. They are a wonderful product and work better than I could have imagined, based on comparisons with the original Lightstrip!!

    I used this strip as a backlight for my 55" TV. Pros: -Good colorful light -Compatibility with other market leading smart home devices -IFTTT setup Cons: -Adhesive backing and flexibility does not allow for adhering to uneven surfaces or following curves well. -Length was not sufficient enough to wrap a rectangle around my 55" TV to give good backlight effect on all sides (had to purchase the extension). Honestly at this length without the extension(s) I don't know what house feature this would fit on and provide adequate uniformed lighting. I suspect this is on purpose. -Value as far as size versus price is not there. If compatibility/controllability isn't an issue it would be much cheaper to buy stand alone led strip lighting.

    Very pleasantly surprised by the lightstrip. I wasn't sure if it would be more like the bloom (which lacks certain color tones) but this lightstrip offers the same colors as the 3rd gen lightbulbs and maybe even a bit more vivid on certain shades of blue and green. I have the lightstrip along the back of my TV and it looks great! One thing to note is that it varies greatly in the level of brightness. One of my biggest complaints about the lightbulbs is that even at their lowest setting, they're still very bright, but the lightstrip happily can get very dim when I need it to. It also gets very bright. Will easily be seen during the daytime. Overall a fantastic product and would buy again if I ever decide to apply more accent lighting to my home! ***friendly note for those who don't know how much to buy. I have a 55 inch TV and I put the lightstrip and extensions along the very outer edge of my TV and ended up using the lightstrip along with 2 extenders. The second extender will overlap the original position a little bit, but would definitely recommend buying two extensions for a 55 inch TV

    I would recommend this to a friend
