    Great strips, even with the difficulty connecting

    I only have three complaints about these strips. 1 - Philips makes it incredibly to customize the length and re-use strips without soldering your own connections. If you plan to cut these, do not cut where Philips marked. Cut between the solder joints so these can be re-used. 2 - You must also buy a bridge to manage these, they're not just plug and play out the box. 3 - The actual strip is directly attached to the controller., meaning the controller must be within a few inches, it can't be hidden with an extension. Other than that, these are fantastic. It is hard to find a LED strip that does both warm white, bright white and colors all in one unit. I installed these as under cabinet lights, using Cat6 cable to extend where needed. I do have other locations where I could use this, but Philips design is not consumer friendly.

    Great lights. Use alternative mounting

    Lights themselves are great — five stars in that category. Con: Mounting via adhesive backing seemed ineffective. However, cable ties + mounting bases are a cheap and effective alternative. Product gets dinged for not having a great mounting system out of the box. Other things to think about: Consider carefully what surface you will be illuminating. This looks great against a matte finish, like say drywall. If you are lighting a somewhat reflective surface, then you might get an undesirable Christmas tree light effect. In my case, I had to position these very carefully so as not to see this effect off my high gloss floors.

    Good Under Cabinet Lighting

    I installed these lights under my cabinets and am very happy with the result. They are bright enough to light the countertop at night was well as light up the back splash. The color options are endless, so you can pick one that matches the room. There are 3rd party extension cables, splitters, and cut end connectors available online. These will void any warranties on the Hue, but are required for some projects. Couple negatives: The strips do not allow for placement on any sharp corners as they are not flexible enough. The spacing between spots to cut the strips is too large. It makes it difficult to get precise lengths as the "cut here" symbols are about a foot apart.

    Great product with some major caveats

    I love Hue lighting and the light strips have been a wonderful addition to my office desk. That said, there are a few major gripes that do detract from my overall score: the light strips are too short and even the extension is short; the light strip isn't cheap to begin with and the extensions make it even more expensive (hard to imagine not needing extensions); and the extension makes the light strip... loud? In some colors it makes a sound that it wasn't making prior to attaching the extension.

    Best smart light system

    If you are thinking about living in a smarter house. Don't look any further than starting with hue lights. It is the most convenient way to turn off your lights when you are too lazy to get up and flip a switch. Don't be alarmed they are pricey but, it's worth it! These accent lights are a wow factor that everybody notices. I put the light strips on the back of my tv The only con I have for the light strips is that if it is not placed flat on the surface some circuits may use other colors than what is commanded.

    color is superb, 3M adhesive not so much

    the color possibilities are amazing. Much better than my hue bulbs. These really can capture pretty much any color; it's impressive. However, the adhesive is an absolute joke. I use these lights in my kitchen below my cabinets, (above the backsplash) and found myself using a glue gun to get them to stay put. I'm not sure on what surface the 3M adhesive would be sufficient but on wood and glass, not at all.

    I attached this strip to the back of my TV - surrounding it like a frame and it adds a beautiful glow on the wall behind it adding a more immersive experience for game playing or movie watching. I use my Google Home or SERI on my phone to tell it how bright and what color I want it . My only complaint is the adhesive will not stick to anything. I used clear packing tape and that held it to the back of the TV.

    Great option for moulding or accent light

    I love these things. I have one lighting some crown moulding that adds a nice bit of light to the room reflecting off the white ceiling. The other I afixed to the underside of my fish tank lid and use it as a fish tank light. Its a little pricey for a tank light but the color effects are a real show stopper. One star off as the LED's aren't well diffused so if close to a reflective source you can see individual colors. Not a show stopper by any means and can be fixed by buying a diffuser cover (however technically this will reduce light output)

    Added this to an existing system. Extremely wasy to add. Very easy to control and adjust. Bright. Rich colors. Glad we purchased it. Also bought extension. The only downside is the peel and stick backing is useless. Spent a fair amount of time prepping surface. (Island countertop). Had to use painter's tape to hold in place and run a bead of silicone down each edge to hold in place. Expected a 3m product to work better but if something had to fail I am glad it was the sticky backing and not the light. .

    I purchased my philips led strips to illuminate my big screen tv. Aside from wishing they would come in longer lengths and with some right angle connectors the product was awesome. It connected to my bridge in seconds and just a few minutes later to my phone. The 3M tape could have been a more sticky as with an uneven surface I am not sure how long it will stick.

    This review comes from my review of the main led strip. This is just an add on and performs identical. It fills that incomplete legnth. As i said in my other review, its a great product. The only reason i removed one star is it is hard to make croners and tape can be better. Becareful as sections can go out if you bend it in ways its not supposed to.

    Philips Smart Home Lightstrip

    This is the extension to the starter pack of the Philip Smart Home lightstrip. So you need the starter lightstrip for this extension to work, unless you want to hack it. Perfect if you need just on long lightstrip and the starter pack is not long enough. I have not used mine cause my starter pack was the perfect length. As for the lights themself, bright, colorful, adjustable and I control them by my phone. There quite a few apps to pick from to control your Philips Smart products.

    While I still do like these lights I have a few issues with them. I have these behind my monitors and it offers a nice look/feel to the room. The light is nice to work and game with. The downside is that on a flat surface like that, it is hard to "curve" them to make a shape like an S. Also if you ever take them off the wall, the stickiness is gone and you have to use something else to stick them up with.

    Good additional...but not worth the money

    If you already have your house decked out with hue lights and have a hue lightstrip that you need additional length for, it is a necessity. If you are just getting into smart lights and the lightstrip was your first purchase, you will find out that that $10/ft is a little pricey for not a lot of light. I'm not going to kill a review because of the cost, because the entire Hue line is high priced.

    Unlike the old this allows the strips to be extended. And fit areas where the old would require multiple desperate strips. They could have made the connection spot better so it stays secure. I used some shopping tape that's clear but it can still slide. Just use this in an area of minimal movement or folks hitting.. Also the only other thing is to make sure you don't cut the strip because you can't extend the old or the new if you do.

    I have a 65" 4K that I put this on. But the initial 2M one was too short, so I needed this extension. but then the extension made it too long... So I had to cut it, which hurt tbh, and these don't look like they can easily be re attached when cut... Looks and works great, but man It hurt cutting it. that was like $10 wasted

    I purchased the Hue LED light strip kit to put in my bar. With the way my bar is made, I ended up having to go all the way around to get both the top shelves and bottom. I had to purchase this extension and another to finished the top and bottom shelving. Only down side is the price for the 3ft extension and to options to purchase the 6ft strip that the kit comes with separately. Still an awesome product!

    The lights are very bright and clear. I think the design is attractive. the lights themselves fairly bright but not unmanageable. When we took it out of the box and plugged it in, it worked perfectly. The instruction regarding how to connect to our wireless were incomplete but that didn't matter. To date, we love the lights and would recommend it to others. Another great product bought at BestBuy!

    I have other Philips Hue lights and I'm satisfied with the product over all. The only caveat is that they're pricey for the length that Philips provides. There are other cheaper compatible strips but require some tinkering which I really don't have time for. Other than that they do what they're supposed to.

    looks great, easy to add on, plug and play. I do recommend the light bars instead...easy install, flexible install, brighter color...will be replacing my strips with bars and install strips on secondary tv...if $ is the issue, get the strip, if $ no issue, recommend the bars...at least 2
