    Super fun third generation so much brighter than before with better range of colors. Also can be controlled by any device - iPhones/iPads/Mac using homeKit/Siri, Amazon Alexa, Google Home Assistant, and Philips own app along with a bunch of other fun apps. Requires a philips hue hub. Can even control over the internet and turn off lights from afar, set timers, turn on in response to motions, etc. I love the Hue Disco app on iPhones - great to change color to the music! They can even change color based on programming using If This Then That (IFTT) or Stringify, so can change colors based on stock prices, weather, air quality, etc. These are absolutely the best internet connected bulbs that Money can buy! Way better than all the others and way more other types of bulbs that can work on the same systems. Philips owns this space! Highly recommended!

    This is our 9th or 10th Hue bulb and while not cheap, work very well as we've transitioned to more of a "smart" home. We love how it works with Amazon Echo, but it can be buggy from time to time. Not a deal breaker by any means, but more of temporary inconvenience. The ability to easily change colors using the app is great for holidays and parties. Hands free voice activation is great when you have both arms full of groceries. Also appreciate being able to turn lights on a off while away from home in the event you forget to turn one or two off.

    Best lights ever! Set mood or holiday lights. Great whites too Want a more natural white or more blue tint white yep does that too. You can set up lights to turn off when you leave and on when you arrive. Put motion sensors anywhere. Hook up to google home or alexa is super easy just say alexa or hey google pair Philip's hue and boom it's set up. Hey google make kitchen blue or turn off all lights, that's cool too! Expensive yes but worth every penny.

    I have 8 color bulbs , 2 lightstrips , 2 hue go and a few white bulbs. the best thing about the color bulbs is having the option to connect them to any socket around the house and just changing the name on the fly , very straight forward . the colors get better every time they release a new version. I can't wait for what's to come this year.

    This bulb, thanks to the white light spectrum from cool to warm is great for getting daylight, and a soft light around sunset. Also, at night, the colors that can be made with the light have odd effects on the colors of other items, it is fun to experiment, and it is very nice to get an even more relaxing mood before bed than simply using warm white.

    A great option for smart lighting. Easy to install and setup with the Phillips app. Third party apps add more functionality and optional accessories like switches and motion sensors help you get the most out of the bulb. I use them in conjunction with both Google home and Alexa and I can't get enough. Currently running 20+ lights and counting.

    I am completely obsessed with the Philip Hue lightbulbs. If you are at all interested in setting up smart lighting these are the way to go. Easy to set up, and you can create really personalized, beautiful lighting. I only wish the colored ones weren't SO expensive. I haven't had them long enough to learn when they burn out, but so far, so good.

    Hue lights integrate seemlessly into making your home more smart. You can set schedules, control your lights remotely, and set conditional sequences. Setting up voice commands makes this even more amazing. While costly, these lights have been reliable and integrate very well with other smart home devices

    We love the Hue system in our home for our lighting needs. We use them for auto turn on in early morning so not to wake family with bright lights throughout the house because the Hue has dimmable capability as well as color settings of soft lighting that we like to use in the auto setting. Great for throughout the house.

    Hue lights have recently become an obsession of mine. This bulb is no different. So amazing to set the brightness you need for a patillas activity (just enough light to not disturb a loved one sleeping). Paired with hue strips or hue play bar and you can have a party anytime with app pairing.

    I have over 26 hue lights and the 3rd gen a19 bulbs colors are a must and great improvement over 1 St gen . The hue lights are my favorite start house product I own since they work with a lot of platform like smart things and Google products. These are a must for any smart home and a great way to start.

    I've own the previous version of the bulbs and they've worked great but the Green's and to a lesser extent the Blue's have been somewhat lacking. The new version has deep rich colors including the Green color range! I love the rich effects I'm able to achieve for various color schemes with the new bulbs.

    It's hard to go wrong with anything in the Hue ecosystem - as long as you're content to be locked into it. Albeit usually the more expensive than other options out there, the bulbs always perform great and have great color production.

    I bought a Philips Hue starter kit to install in our family room. That worked out so well, I bought a few more single bulbs to use in other areas of the house. I synced them all to my Amazon Echo and Alexa takes care of the rest!

    The bulb is expensive and there’s no denying that but the the ability to chance color and control the light in different ways makes it worth it. I have mine paird with motion sensor to go on when it detects motion.

    I can’t get enough of these bulbs. They are so much fun and as someone that gets a lot of migraines and is pretty sensitive to light overall, it’s great to have the color options so I can default to a really warm light setting!

    First off, there are two official Hue Apps. This bulb was my 5th color/white bulb. I love being able to speak to Google to turn in the bulbs to various colors. And, YES, I do have them on physical switches; and they work just fine

    i bought this bulb to add a little more fun to my bedside light, but in actuality, rarely use any of the color features. i just like the amber options. maybe i'll move it into the living room when i have a bulb to take its place.

    Once I figured out I needed CA specific bulbs I ordered this as an additional bulb as my lights needed one more Hue. Works great and was easy to set up with already established Hue system.
