    Beware of Philips Marketing

    The units themselves work great. The setup and pairing was easy. The colors are fantastic. Everything you would expect from a Philips Hue product. But... Do not be fooled by their marketing. They do not easily sync with the content on your TV. You'll need Philips Hue Sync running on a PC. Once this is installed, Philips expects you to either connect an HDMI cable or cast the content from your PC to your TV. Only then will the lights sync with your TV. In the age of the streaming device and smart TV, this is not a good solution. I'm still going to keep the units, as I hope Philips will introduce an installed application for my Fire TV or other smart device to provide better content sync. I've also had no luck getting these lights to sync with my Sonos home speakers.

    Good for accent lighting, not as bright as Hue Go

    This is a good little lamp for accent lighting in a corner or against a wall, provided it's behind something and you're not looking at it straight-on (it's too bright otherwise). But I prefer the Hue Go for lighting a corner - little brighter yet less harsh at the same time.

    Light output is good, I put three of these behind my 65 inch TV and it looks great. Easy to install and setup is easy with Hue app as always. Price is inflated as always with Hue but that’s Hue.

    Bought this for my Livingroom TV. Not really worth the price in my opinion.

    Way too expensive. Wasn't that bright. Prefer the strip over these.
