    Wildly Overpriced

    My $20 LED strips from China provide the same quality light but will go all around the TV for a fraction of the cost plus they'll plug into the tv and automatically turn on and off with the tv. There's absolutely no reason these should be this expensive. Just tremendously overpriced.

    Another great Hue product but..I bought this very early before a lot of the specs were released. I wanted to use them under the cabinets in the kitchen. The back side comes to V shape, I could not mount it flush on the bottom of the cabinets without their brackets. Too bulky for that.

    I love the Philips Hue Brand to begin with, but I really love these new play lights! I bought this two pack plus one of the expansion pack to go behind my tv and they are the star of my living room! They are so bright and vibrant! these are a great addition to your Hue family!

    Philips hue lights pack is great for computer entertainment. Really wish though it could be wireless and that it can play on my tv without using a computer but hopefully Phillips will come up with something like that. Overall great product!

    My son is a big fan of "smart home" gadgets and asked for this. It seamlessly fit into his Alexa based "ecosystem" and he loves all the features for various mood lighting and all the other controls that come with the device. Recommend to all smart home enthusiasts.

    Better than light strips

    This gives just the right amount of ambient backlighting for a tv. Much nicer than a light strip in that unless your tv is recessed into a nook, you will catch the glare of light strips every time you walk past the side of the tv.

    Using to light up the wall behind TV

    I have many other Hue lights and this is just another addition to my setup. My TV wall mount leaves enough room behind to the TV to mount these lights. It is nice to use Alexa to turn on/off lights along with changing colors all by voice.

    We loved the lights. Easy to connect, wonderful colors. Easy to use through app. Unfortunately we ended up returning this since it didn't cover enough of a 20' wall we were using this on. But for smaller spaces, this light should just work.

    Why Philips did not make a better swivel mounting system blows me away. Good product but terrible mounting and stands to place behind pictures ect. Any your app is terrible Philips! Still better than the other junk that is out there though

    I know people don’t like the micro transactions and I don’t either, but take this game for what it is. It’s probably the best I have played in the MK series and I’m sure they are going to fix the bugs. Good story great multiplayer.

    I initially purchased the strips but was not happy with the length limitation and the cheap feeling for something that cost $89.00. I’m happy I waited for these b/c they’re perfect for placing behind mounted TVs. Reduces eye strain but most importantly looks amazing.

    Bought this to backlight a 65" wall mounted TV. I put it on the top and bottom. Adds a nice touch to your entertainment center. Easy setup. I'll eventually add hue lights to the left and right, probably in the lamps vs. these light bars.

    These are awesome lights that added on to my already wide array of Phillips Hue products. Had some issues with my guaranteed shipping date and them showing up a week late but it was over the holidays and we had a winter storm so I couldn't get too upset

    These were smaller than I expected but were purchased to add some light and ambiance to our son's room. Easy to set up and very color accurate. Only 4 stars because the mount / stands seem a bit limited - I am sure next releases might improve on that.

    We use three of these to highlight some artwork, and another to backlight a different piece. Great color and great overall light output, wish there were more aiming options, but still a strong 4.6 stars from me.

    I put the pair of the the Hue Play lights behind my TV and it is the perfect way to wind down and watch a movie. I will say these lights do heat up quite a bit, so I'm hesitant to leave them on for long periods of time.

    Does not provide much light

    I bought this thinking it would light up a wall. You would need multiple sets to get it done. The pictures in the adds can not be achieved with one set. The lights do look good if you want to spend the money for additional sets

    These lights are fantastic! I use them in conjunction with two other Phillip hue light bulbs to create movie theater style lights. If you use the hue sync app with tv connected to a pc, the lights can change colors with the show.

    I have these on my main TV and my ultrawide monitor for my PC. Love both but it works better on PC with the sync app. Hope they release something for smart TVs soon or even a app for the Apple TV! That would be awesome.

    I am a long time Hue user. I bought these because of the form factor and use them as accent wall lighting. The thin profile is fantastic, and the light brightness and color saturation is much better than the Hue Go or Bloom.
