    I use this for applications where I don't benefit from color changing lights, such as lamps near reading areas.

    These do not let you adjust color temperature which kind of defeats the purpose

    The new Hue bulbs is the same programing and features of the full featured bulb less the color changing

    It doesn't do color temperature variation, which is I think the best thing about the Hue system. But it's affordable enough to put in all kind of places, like closets, small bathrooms, etc, so you can get a bunch of them without too much wallet pain.

    Thought it would work by its own, but needs a bridge. Decent one, but no color change - only white.

    If you're all in on the Hue ecosystem, this is a great bulb for places where you don't really need color but still want to be able to control the lights with your phone. We use these to supplement the more expensive color changing lights all over our house.

    Great entry level hue bulbs. They are expensive upfront, but will mark up for it by how long they last. These only do the lower color temps.

    Works great. Needed a connected bulb, but not the color temperature controls. Great for the price.

    These bulbs perform as advirtised. No fancy color change, but for rooms not in need of Hue Color, they work great. I use them in areas like kitchen, laundry room, garage, bath, etc. Worth the money, plus they'll save you money.

    Works as advertised, but low on features

    I have a bevy of smart home stuff: Amazon Alexa, Google Home, Philips Hue Hub, Logitech Harmony Hub, etc. Each of these have the ability to control this light. The problem I have with these kids of lights is that once the lamp in which this lives is switched off by hand, it's no good. You have to keep the light on all the time and only let the smart controls turn it off. That's the way smart bulbs work, not a fault of the product. As for this product, I wish it could do other hues of the white spectrum and not just dimmable. I knew this wasn't the color changing type, but some variance in the whites would be nice, too. That being said, if you know what you are getting when you buy the bulb, you won't be disappointed.

    Although it's cool to turn your lights on with your voice, these can be frustrating. The interface between the Alexa devices and the Phillips bridge it touchy. You have to state the lights name EXACTLY. You can't say "Bedroom light on" when it's listed as "Bedroom lights". Also the inner network between the bulbs is weak. Sometimes devices are not "reachable". As far as changing color on the color bulbs, the scenes part of the app sucks. Work great with your smartphone but as far as voice control forget it.
