    Great ambiance, nice app integration... only complaint i's limitation of stances for the lights... they should have a better cradling system. It's difficult to sit the bar in the cradle and have it sit without moving because of the weight of the cord... also you have to have it balanced perfectly in the middle or it falls off the cradle...NOW, I understand it's supposed to be screwed into the cradle in 1 of 2 configurations, but that completely limits this lights usage and the users ability to position it... something Philips could definitely work on... no bad on best buy

    This light is a great addition to my Philips lighting system at my house. I also love the ability to connect this light with my Xbox or movies to really set the mood through the Hue Sync app. Adds a great ambiance to any situation.

    The fact that I can put these behind my monitor and it syncs with my other hue lights makes movies and gaming so much more immersive.

    We put this on our mantel to eluminate some jars. It looks really cool and provides a good amount of light, not super bright, but enough to make the room look cool.

    This product works very well. Note though that it will only sync colors if used through a computer running hue sync as there is no direct way for the lights to communicate with the TV screen. It does provide great ambient lighting as well.

    The Hue Play Bar is a great addition to your smart lighting. These lights really enhance the ambiance of a room. They are a little pricey, but you can feel the quality. Nice rich colors.

    Better version of the Bloom

    Title of the review is pretty much all there is to say. Blooms were good for ambient lighting, but had a limited color spectrum and were annoyingly white with a white cord. This is much brighter, has better color output, offers more mounting possibilities, and is a easier to hid because it's black. The expansion option to add 3 of these per power supply is a great touch as well. For the extra $10, I see very little reason to buy a Bloom over a Play. I do wish the two included mounting plates were combined into a single that used some sort of ball bearing for rotation, but other than that I have zero complaints.

    perfect if you don't want to use the lightstrip

    If you don't want to use the light strip to light up your TV, this is the perfect solution. I bought the one that contains 2 light bars in one package. Setup was a breeze. Each on comes with two stands - one for vertical mount so you can stand them up on your TV stand and the second option is the stick-on mount of you want to attach them to the back of your TV. I used the vertical mounts and found just fine. The surprise was in the power module for these - it comes with three!!! output jacks, so you can power up three light bars without needing 3 outlets. Very thoughtful! Their brightness of 550 lumens was good enough to create a prefect ambiance and I truly enjoyed it. @@@@@@@@ Remember that 1st gen of hue light was rated only at 600 lumens) I am still thinking about buying the 3rd one and mount them on the back of my TV with the 3rd one in the middle but then it becomes a somewhat expensive solution, however offset by its versatility. As I said I bought for my TV but these compact bars can be used in place of Iris, Hue Go or any other accent lights throughout the house
