HUE is a WINNER!!!
Bought a starter kit plus 3 individual bulbs today. Took 10 minutes to set up. I had to convince the "geniuses" at the local Apple Bought a starter kit plus 3 individual bulbs today. Took 10 minutes to set up. I had to convince the "geniuses" at the local Apple Store that HUE really existed. They went online, discovered it did, went in the back room, found and sold them. No one had asked about them before I walked in.
They assured me I could return them in 14 days, so I decided to try them. Hue and the free App is amazing! Download your own pic. Touch it to turn on the lights. Group anyway you want, dim independently, color control independently.
If you turn off the wall switch, the bulbs forget where they were. Turn the switch back on, and the bulbs turn on to default approx. 3000 degrees K. Then touch any mood you set up on the iPhone, and it instantly changes colors & intensity.
We have a 50's Diner designed kitchen with black / white tile, red wall tile, red neon accents, so touch the 50's Diner photo, and 4 bulbs come on, 2 red and 2 whatever temp white you choose. Halloween? Orange no problem. Christmas? Red and Green.
1-A must if you are really into home automation, home theatre, etc.
2-Extremely high quality feel bulb design
3-Bulbs run barely warm and draw 8.5 watts max
4-Super easy to use
5-No need to use your iPhone. Set the onboard timer function for on / off. Gives that lived in look, and no need to turn on / off every time.
6-Full dimming capability
7-Default to Warm White (looks like 3000 degree K) if power fails and comes back on
8-No high frequency sound, no flicker, no RFI interference
9-Instantly group able and groups can be changed instantly
10-Philips is a leader in LED technology. I have over 100 Philips LED bulbs in service for over a year, with no failures. yet, Lights of America and other off brands have failed 100% in a year! The electronics fail, not the LED's themselves in the off brands.
11-Touch a pic of the room to turn the lights on.
12-Set a different background pic for every page of moods.
13-Set a page up for every room. This groups the bulbs to a scene in that room by choosing the specific page on the iPhone.
2-Only medium Base available today. I need Candelabra base and need R30
3-600 Lumen output is a little low but is OK
These bulbs are NOT going back!!! Wife loves them, as do I. 'Nuff said!!! …

I recommend using all th Controlling lights from iPad and iPhone is neat. Colors work well. There is a slight learning curve..
I recommend using all the lights on setup, this may have been problem for me since I screwed in only one bulb..

If I had only purchased HUE first (and not wasted $ on Lifx)
I am very pleased with my Hue starter kit. My only regret is that I wasted a ton of money purchasing Lifx bulbs prior to purchasin I am very pleased with my Hue starter kit. My only regret is that I wasted a ton of money purchasing Lifx bulbs prior to purchasing a Hue starter pack. Hue is everything that Lifx promised to be and unfortunately, Lifx failed to deliver! I use one Hue bulb on the porch, and have an "alarm" set for the bulb to turn on around dusk and turn off at dawn. In addition, I have the other two bulbs in my living room, which we use on a variety of settings depending on the activity (e.g., Relaxation mode, dimmed for movie night, reading mode, etc). I have the bulbs set up so that if it is after dark and the bulbs are not already on, they detect my arrival within the neighborhood and turn on the lights at home. With regard to setup, I had no difficulty setting up the bulbs and so far (after several months of use) I have not had any issues. In the future, I will purchase bulbs for other parts of the house as well. Thank you Hue! …

Amazing! Worth every dollar!
I actually held off buying Philips Hue due to the price. But after realizing that the bulbs last beyond a decade and that they act I actually held off buying Philips Hue due to the price. But after realizing that the bulbs last beyond a decade and that they actually do more than just light (it can be art, design, a conversation piece, etc - for those who take pride in having a nice home) your home. I bought the starter pack recently and a few of the light strips and other accessories... I had everything setup in under 30 minutes flawlessly, including linking to the iOS apps. I must say, I love these lights. Its effortless to use, creates amazing colours and scenes in your home; can help you relax after work or make a movie or music more exciting with connected lights. I love waking up to the sunrise scene in my bedroom, just one of many, many uses.
If you do care about having a nice home and lighting plays a big part of that, I'd completely and totally recommend Hue. You won't regret it. I can't wait to see what they bring out next as part of the Hue line. …

Deceptive advertising, does not produce all colors
The bulbs have very poor available color space. They won't do royal blue, powder blue or forest green. The best approximations the The bulbs have very poor available color space. They won't do royal blue, powder blue or forest green. The best approximations they can come up with are violet and lime green. White light is good, but there are cheaper alternatives on the market for that. I did not encounter loss of connection or other technical issues like those reported by many posters, but again I returned the product immediately. As far as I am concerned if I invest 400$ in 6 RGB bulbs they should have perfect color mapping and all the software issues should have been worked out. …

Not sure but you can use other HUE bulbs to increase the range of the bridge to your bulbs. Each bul Not sure but you can use other HUE bulbs to increase the range of the bridge to your bulbs. Each bulb will piggyback on the other to increase the range of the bridge. However, you should be aware that in that case, the furthest bulb may not work (they will light up like a standard bulb but cannot be controlled from the phone app) if the ones in between are physically switched off. …
