    These bulbs are great, with some quirks ...

    I have over 50 Philips Hue bulbs at this point (and a few accessories) and these are included in my "collection" Colors are nice, they work well with Siri/Alexa. Certain colors are difficult to obtain (i.e. deep blues) but for practical purposes they do the job and provide a great atmosphere. Be warned, however, that Philips recommends a max of 50 devices and things start acting quirky when you exceed it as I have. You may need to add a second bridge when you reach that point.

    I absolutely love this light! I originally bought the basic white light starter kit to see how I even liked the product, and I fell in love. After having some vouchers I decided to invest into the color options and they are even more amazing. There are so many color options to pick from, and the fact I can control it from my phone- set timers, turn on/ off or dim lights from anywhere, and now change the color is fantastic! On Halloween I turn these lights to be orange and the trick- or- treaters LOVED it, I cant wait for Christmas and change the colors to red and green!

    I decided to buy the Phillips Hue starter kit but that only came with 3 light bulbs so I need to buy another one for my living room. What can I say about these light bulbs? They are a lot of fun to play with. They aren't too bright and don't radiate heat. I love being able to dim them with my Echo Dot. Changing the color of the lights is fun and there are so many different color settings and apps that work with these light bulbs. Easy to use. Good quality product. They are on the expensive side but they last a long time so hopefully not all your light bulbs go out at the same time.

    I was a little frustrated to find out I only have one light fixture in my entire house that can use standard bulbs, literally. The rest are either recessed CFL's, or some fancy LED Cluster soldered into the base. So, I bought my single bulb and installed it into an Ikea lamp next to my couch in the living room. It works great and the ambient color settings are awesome. So awesome, that I ended up buying additional Hue LED Strips to add lighting around the house where I can't. And now, these are the main lights we use on a daily basis. I highly recommend them.

    really cool smart bulb, has so many colors

    the smart bulb is really nice as it allows you to change between 16 million colors in a color gradient through the hue app on your smartphone. the bulb itself requires the phillips hue hub to function but can be paired to a google mini or echo dot after. The blue colors are more soothing and can allow for relaxation. The fact that you can instantly change from bright white to soft white or warmer lighting is really nice. Overall, i am very satisfied with my purchase.

    I initially bought 4 and then added a 5th. I work a swing shift and being able to create softer lights not only dimmer but softer colors late at night helps me unwind from work and get to sleep. Connecting them to my Echo Dot which I did just cause I thought it would be fun has actually proven to be useful. Especially when my hands are full and I need to turn the lights on when I come home. The ease of setting was a nice surprise. I mean who has not heard that before and then struggled. All in all after reading the reviews and doing comparisons I went with the Hue lights and I am glad I did.

    I think there's a give-and-take with all of the smart light systems. What I like about the Phillips is that it works through a single hub, thus not using a ton of my wifi bandwidth. The trade-off seems to be that they are not as bright as some of the other brands, and the effects are limited as well. I'm a big fan of Hygge living, and would really love if I could program these to flicker the way LifX seems to. For general lighting though, they're fine.

    I have had these lights for a few months now and they work great. My daughter has 6 of these in the ceiling in her room and she loves them. She can change any one of them to different colors or just have all of them the same. She also has them linked to her music so they flash in sync. I also have more that I use in the main part of the house as well. I love that I can turn them on using Alexa and adjust the brightness with my voice as well. The app is easy to use and setup has been easy and start forward. There are so many things you can do with these lights.

    The best smart bulb in the market

    I was initially very skeptical of having a smart bulb that would change colors based on various parameters. Initially, I was curious what color it shows up without any wifi connectivity as an ordinary bulb (its yellow by the way). Paying a hefty price for that seemed me to question my intellect. But after paring it with my wifi control switch hub, I was spellbound. Granted this is a fancy purchase, but having to change the colors of the room based on whatever the mood is brought life to my house. I am planning to buy more and give my home a complete makeover.

    I know it's crazy to spend so much on a lightbulb but I caution you on being so quick to judge. My wife thought I'd lost my mind when I came home with five bulbs that cost over $200. However, she has come to appreciate my vision as we are now able to adjust lighting in the living room, dining room, and bedroom to fit our mood or needs based on what we're doing. For us, the color of the room makes a difference in our moods and overall comfort. I highly recommend these bulbs and look forward to a day when I can afford to put them throughout my home especially in the kid's rooms.

    It took me a while to justify spending over $50 on a single light bulb, but I haven't regretted purchasing these a single bit. I now have them in nearly every socket in my house and they have made life crazy easy. I have routines to wake up and go to sleep, turn on lights in the evening or when I leave a room. So many colors for disco parties, movie and game nights, or just enjoying a colorful evening. You can turn them off from outside your house and connect them to smart assistants to control by voice. Overall amazing bulbs

    I didn't know if I was going to appreciate these Hue White & Color Ambiance A19 Smart LED Bulbs - Multicolor but I am actually using them quite a bit and enjoying them. I am using them as back lighting behind my TV and entertainment center and they look amazing. I also have one in my desk light and it's proving to be versatile when using the dimming feature. And having the added benefit of integrating them with both my Google Home and Amazon Echo is wonderful.

    So the lights are easy enough to set up. The colors are brilliant. The only downside I have to share is once in a while a bulb will stop responding to the app and/or google home commands. The only fix I’ve found when this happens is unlinking then relinking the bulb through the app. Happens for no apparent reason. Possibly update issue. Overall though, we have these in our living area, dining area, bedrooms and love them. I use voice command in all rooms. Would be nice if you could adjust color by voice but the dimness control is satisfactory.

    We LOVE our smart lighting. It was very easy to set up and we have used a variety of settings such as the routines for waking up to natural light, timers, etc. The color option is a great way to really change up the atmosphere of a room. Also, I love that we can come home to lights on without wasting electricity! It's also nice to be able to get everyone and everything situated at bedtime with the lights on, then hop in bed and tell Alexa "Bedtime" and have her shut off all the lights and turn a night light on in the kids room!

    Philips Hue is Energy Efficient, Fun, and Unique

    I love these Philips Hue bulbs. Warning** they are not too nice to the wallet, but they are great to have. The unique ability to transform lighting in a room to create a different mood is great to me. I can go from mellow to party in 2 seconds with help of the Hue App, 3rd Party apps or my voice (Alexa, Google, and Siri Homekit enabled, If you have the Hue Bridge). My electricity costs have gone down with the incorporation of these bulbs (went from compact fluorescent "twisty bulbs" to Hue LED bulbs) and our fun has gone up.

    This is now my 16th Phillips Hue product. I have the strips behind my television and the lights in almost every fixture in the house. I love coming home to the lights automatically turning on the seeing all the different colors. I love the blue/ pink the most. I have them hooked up to my google home and minis throughout the house. Awesome product that I would recommend to anybody. I have different themes set up in every room.

    Colorful bulb to light up the night

    The Phillips Hue Color bulbs are expensive investments, but worth every penny once you've started getting into the system. The ability to create color palettes to match your mood is incredible, and the ability to schedule your lights to come on and turn off with the rising/setting of the sun makes working with the Hue bulbs on a daily basis a breeze. Whether you're just looking to light up your home in funky colors or use color/light theory to enhance your productivity and mood, these are worth the purchase!

    Not the first I've purchased, but I love it just the same. Combined with smart home automation such as Samsung's SmartThings and Amazon's Echo, these lights make turning off lights in my home fun. "Computer, turn off living rooms," "Computer, turn off fireplace." It just works. Sure, there are occasional issues where Echo says Hue isn't responding, but on the whole the services work as expected. Oh, my experience with Apple's HomeKit... trash. It's terrible and inconsistent. If you want the best experience, use it with a dedicated smart home hub and Echo.

    These things are the best thing since sliced bread. I understand that buying a bridge and then individually buying bulbs to fit each room can add up, but the lifespan of these will beat any other bulbs on the market and the countless ways to change the lighting and colors in your rooms makes it a solid investment. I have one single bulb and one bridge. I’ve had it for a few months now and I can’t imagine going back to a normal bulb. I plan on filling the house with these.

    I am now a proud owner of 6 Hue Lights and I love them! Love how they can be controlled with Alexa, the connectivity, and also the different light settings that can be applied to it. There are mood settings that allow you to relax, wake up, and energize, the one I like the most is using the lights as a disco ball when I invite people over. If you download a third party app, you can make your lights go with the beat of the songs.
