    I am using hue lightbar behind TV and created entertainment room in Hue app and tested successfully by mirroring my macbook using airplay to Apple TV and the background of the TV syncs great with song we play using hue sync application on MacBook. However Hue Sync works only with laptop mirroring to TV and not with direct media content on TV

    I brought this package to bring some ambiance lighting into my home. My brother had a custom basement package which included a lighting system. I don't have a basement but I can create the mood I want to create throughout the house. I have my Hue Play behind my 75" TV. The color effect makes the TV stand out and appearing larger. Very pleased with the Philip Light kits.

    I was a little disappointed to find out that you cannot do the sink with the TV unless you go through a computer. I would like to see some kind of an update that allows you to work through an Xbox or regular Blu-ray player. Outside of that they are very bright there is quite a few options you can do for color changing.

    These have been hard to find because they are always out of stock. Finally able to order online and picked up at store in 2 days. These lights exceeded my expectations and are much brighter than expected. Currently have them behind my 50 inch tv in the living room and it makes watching tv much more enjoyable. I would love another set someday.

    So much better than the light stops of old. Perfect for going behind the TV or computer monitor. Some of the syncing options are really cool too. They are surprisingly quick in using the software to read the colors onscreen in computer applications and add that extra umph to games and movies!

    Added these to an existing Hue set up. these are coming on daily near dusk as a welcoming home light so we don't come home to a dark house. Also sort of a burglar deterrent. Very easy to set up if you have the Hue hub. I p[laced them behind our TV for an indirect light while watching shows. I like the ability to change their color too.

    Waited a while before purchasing these and glad I now have them. They sync well with the Hue Sync App (on PC or Mac) and add an extra dimension to gaming and movies. Hopefully Hue develops an app for Apple TV or PS4 as right now you have to use a workaround to get them to sync with those devices.

    I already have the Philips Hue lights throughout my house and just recently bought an electric fireplace with mantle. I was wanting to hide these laying down behind picture frames to up-light the wall above it. These are so much brighter than the light strips and have a more correct and true to color similar to the bulbs.

    Awesome lights! I have been wanting these to match the rest of the house. So far these are the o my lights that stay attracted to the tv without falling off. They also come with a mount if you don’t want to stick them to your wall or tv. I do wish the lights where more compatible with flashing than a computer app.

    These lights really bring out my living room. I have it attached to the back of my tv and it creates the ultimate entertainment experience. This is one of many Phillips lights that I own and I absolutely love it. Fully customizable and super easy to use. Will be buying more for sure.

    These light are a simple way to add accent to the house. They are narrow and easy to hide. There must be a plug within about 6 feet of where you want the light. It would be nice if the lights could plug into one and other to extend the distance from the plug.

    These lights are phenomenal, and the sync function is truly revolutionary. Setting it to a low, subtle brightness does wonders for immersion when watching TV, and is even more dramatic when I'm gaming. For anyone who already has hue lights, these are a must.

    I’ am currently using these lights for the bedroom tv and my gaming monitor that’s also in my bedroom and so far so great! Very powerful I own the other Philip hue lights and these by far are A LOT BRIGHTER! I’m definitely going to have to buy at least one more of these!

    Not what they were intended for but great

    These were intended to light up behind the television and run a program that ties in the lighting to a movies scene. That function does not work well, but this is a cheaper alternative to hue accent lamps and puts out substantially more lumens. Tied the lighting theme to my room together.

    I have several Hue products and these by far are my favorite to date. They are a phenomenal back light to my television and make the mood lighting for entertainment perfect for any situation. These lights are extremely bright and have remarkable color depth in a great small package.

    I love these lights and the hue app makes it much easier to play with different colors. Adding routines is the best part and you don't have to worry about turning them off during the day time. Definitely recommend it. The ambiance it provides is next level.

    I bought the Philips - Hue Play White & Color Ambiance Smart LED Bar Light (2-Pack) - Multicolor. It is cool I have it behind my TV. The sync with the TV is really cool, it just took a while to tweak it to account for the delay via chromecast.

    I paired these with my gaming PC using a software called ScreenBloom and it make the gaming experience so much more inmersive. Very easy to setup both the hue bridge and the PC software. Would highly recommend. A bit on the expensive side but very cool.

    Same lights but with a new shape, how far can they push the same concept? I have these mounted to rear of my TV, adds depth to color of room when syncing lights to movies, games, or my music. Expensive but kind of cool. Definitely to add to existing hue area, not for purchase by themselves.

    I mounted the lights behind my television and it really makes the tv pop when your watching your favorite tv shows. The only downside with the hue setup is that you can only sync with a computer. I don’t know why you can’t sync with your consoles or television directly.
