    If you use a PAR16 or similar size medium base accent light, I highly recommend this bulb! I switched the accent lights on my office curio with these. Set timers for different colors with times of the day. The colors are beautiful & are a perfect match to the other Hue bulbs. These bulbs gave new life to office furniture that everybody notices! Hue White and Color Ambiance PAR16 Wi-Fi Smart LED Spot Light Bulb - Multicolor earns my highest recommendation!

    A little dim, and don't do blue-green

    I bought a pair of these to use as up-firing accent lights behind my front standing speakers. The were a little dimmer than my other Hue lights, and curiously they cast blue-green colors as white. Green is fine. Blue is fine. But as I move between the two colors in the app, both lights shine white. I own several different Hue bulb models (regular, candle, strips, flood), and they all cover this range. Maybe I have two that are broken exactly the same way, or maybe I should have bought a different bulb. I'd pass on these and wait for a newer model.

    This is one of the few Hue products I don't already own, so I didn't read reviews before buying it. The first thing that struck me is how "defined" the spot is. It throws a sharp, focused circle of light. If you don't aim it carefully, it looks odd. I don't mind that it's not as bright as A19's (actually I didn't even notice), but I DO mind that it can't do all colors!

    I bought two of these to go along with my many other Hue bulbs, only to discover that they project blue-green as white. A bit of a letdown considering the price. I'd wait until the next gen of this form factor, or just go with a different bulb in the Hue family.

    Good product but what you’re probably looking for is the GU10. I bought these then tried shopping for a lighting fixture. It turned out to be impossible to find a lighting fixture which uses PAR16 bulbs. Nothing wrong with the bulbs but the size/shape was an issue.

    I was hesitant to jump in with the Hue just because of the cost, but I bought some gen1 kits on clearance. Recently price dropped and I picked up 4 of these to use as accent lights. I've been very pleased with these products and how they integrate with HomeKit.

    I was thrilled to death to see HUE add PAR16 bulbs to their color collection! I’ve added one to each of my curio cabinets, set daily changes of color, and it’s a perfect blend to the HUE portfolio. Highest recommendation!

    I have four flush ceiling adjustable socket light fixtures placed in each corner of my living room. The Hue bulbs with Alexa were what I needed to set off multiple choices of soft accent/mood lighting in our room.

    I've been a big fan of the hue light system and am slowly building up the collection of lights. I have a lamp that had an awkward bulb that keeps burning out. I bought this on the hope that it would fit and it did, it's been beautiful ever since!

    Installed these lights in a new China Hutch, the lights are compact and put out an incredible amount of multicolored light, and to be able to control remotely is a win win

    This is excellent because all my glass corner stands shines with different coloured and whenever I feel like I can countrile the colours. I completely like this in our dinning area for coroner stand.

    Buggy third party software, no native windows support, the list goes on and on. Bulbs recognized by 3rd party software, but not the POOR QUALITY Phillips app.

    I have several of these bulbs from Philips and they work great even after 5 years. The new ones seem to provide even better color and control.

    Even though the box and the bulb said it had the color hue, Alexa read it as white only. Solved the issue and it's working properly.
