    I was a little disappointed that it doesn't fully support PS4, but its still a nice edition to my living room space. A lot of beautiful colors that you can choose. And really easy to set up.

    Love them. Look great, work great and are all that you need for ambient lighting. Having the hub is excellent so you can choose from 16 million colors.

    Placed 3 of these lights behind our television. They actually look better than the ad.

    I've seen similar setups that cost much less than Philips brand...but I don't seem to have the problems others have. Need the hue bridge. Looks great behind a big screen!

    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.

    My wife and I absolutely love the Phillips Hue Play light bars. I attached one on each side of our 65" TV (via the 3M sticky squares) and it looks great!! We use it with the hue camera app (along with two blooms) when watching movies or when I play video games....so immersive!! Also, it's been over 6 weeks and so far, no problems whatsoever. I'll update this entry should that assessment change, but so far, so good. We're thrilled!!

    My local store didn't have this in stock so I went to another store to get this item as an impulse purchase. I had previously purchased a bridge when it was on sale and this was my first light purchase. You have multiple choices of how to install this, i.e. attached to the back of your TV, or you can use a vertical or horizontal stand. I used the easy to attach vertical stand and set up was very simple. I experimented with different positions and ended up with the two lights directly facing the wall and washing it with color. I found the unshaded led light too intense if any part of the light was facing me. I'm very happy with this. It is lightweight and very easy to move around and experiment with different positions as well as with different colors. I'm controlling it both with my iPhone and with Alexa. I have since bought other Hue lights.

    Hue keeps getting better

    We have a ton of Hue products. We have 7 of the regular color changing bulbs, a bloom and an LED indoor strip... now these. We had the indoor strip behind the TV, but the adhesive wore off, and half the strand displays another color than requested. Here enters my love for this product. These lights are perfect for behind the TV lighting and looks amazing. It gives way more light than the LED strand, and it's way less maintenance than the adhesive issues we had with the strand. Each light has its own power cord, and the cord is about 5 feet long. It was plenty of length to get from the back of the TV to the floor. The lights have a pretty small footprint compared to the light strand too. Installation is simple... you have the option of letting them rest freely or you may attach them to mounts. We attached them to the included mounts, and then used the, also included, adhesive pads to attach it to the back of the TV. Let's hope the adhesive is better than the strand - time will tell. Bottom line, this is about as good as it gets for ambient lighting behind a TV. I find with the ambient lighting my attention is more focused on the screen and my eyes wander less. Maybe because the image on the TV sticks out more depending on the level of contrast you have... just a thought. Anyway, I would highly recommend these.
