    I guess if you have $70 literally burning a hole in you pocket...

    If you have always wanted a lamp in your home which can run out of battery then you're in luck! This is not a well thought out product; when charging it cannot stand at the 45º angle shown in the pictures (arguably it's best view) without balancing on the charge cable which then comes out towards the room - or you can make it a bowl of light (Slashgear describe it as a "milky bowl", every interior designer has been asking for one of those for years) - or point it at a wall, but it's about half the power needed to really make an impact. But it's OK because once charged you can move it / position it how you'd actually like, until it goes flat - then move it back to it's charging location.

    Ugh, the bloody glue!!!

    Some imbecile at Philips decided it would be a good idea to place a sticker on the face of the lamp. I've been trying for the last 2 hours to remove the glue residue and it just won't go away. If you have OCD it's not a product for you. I can already see the dust sticking to this unremovable glue. I can't even describe the product, if someone ruins the whole experience with an issue like this nothing else matters. I was planning to get more Hue devices but this is my first and last.

    Excellent Product

    Great way to get light where there is no outlet. We use ours outdoors on our deck and all around our home. Liked it so much we bought two of them. The ability to change to specific colors and also whites is great. The battery lasts several hours when it's not plugged in.

    Continued False Claims by Hue on "Media Syncing"

    Hue makes claims about supporting a very attractive use case of having your lights sync with video you are watching. This is simply not possibly. There are 3rd party apps that attempt to do this. However, none work well. Look at the ratings in the app store.

    Hue really should build an actual solution to sync the lights with video or stop making false claims.

    Happy with the Hue but no bridge included

    The lamp works as described, although the description is misleading. The Philips Bridge is not included. You will not be able to use the lamp via the iPhone app or wirelessly without the Philips Bridge. The Philips Bridge can not be purchased separately.

    Amazing product, great addition to the Hue range

    I bought this product a couple of days ago when it was released and arrived today. I was hesitant with regard to how well the unit would perform without it being connected and whether or not it would produce the effects I am used to with the current Hue lineup. I am very pleased with the device, the battery life is very reasonable and it has some great presets too, the ambient candle/fire mode is already a favorite. It works straight out of the box and requires minimal setup when pairing with the Hue bridge. Overall I am very pleased with it.
