The normal E27, B22 and GU10 Philips Hue bulbs can work out crazily expensive unless you can buy the Starter Packs and sell off the bits you don't need.

However the E14 isn't available as a Starter pack so if you need these you are looking at £40+ per bulb which even I think is a bit stupid.

However with this Argos deal that's for 4 colour E14 bulbs and a Philips Hue motion sensor the total saving is £55. Cheapest way to get the colour E14s that I know of at the moment.

I'm sure there will be members who say paying £40 for any bulb is just madness, however having used Hue bulbs for a while now I have to say I feel a lot more relaxed when I'm at home as I can set the lighting mood to suit my needs.

You're really just embarrassing yourself now aren't you?

They're not for you and that's fine, but the site is about good deals and your unfounded bias against how other people choose to spend their money smacks of jealousy a bit IMHO.

I don't drink (except at a wedding or similar event) but I don't go round calling out everyone who enjoys their booze, maybe it's because I'm mature enough to have respect for other peoples views rather then just criticising everything that's not for me personally.

It’s worth noting that you can get e27 to e14 adapters in case you can find the e27’s cheaper. I know that’s not possible with all lamps though.

Good price but I can't believe people are paying around £50 for these when they put out so little light (470lm). You need several of them to light a room so this offer will be a life saver 😄

If you're taking about buying Xiaomi Yeelights instead, I have both and the Philips Hue app and third party integration is what makes Hue worth the extra money... not necessarily these though!
These are more suited to bedside lamps rather room lighting.

£149.99 - £20 for the sensor (that's about the normal on sale price) = £32.50 each which is good for these colour bulbs. I paid about £18 each for the ambient ones (which are the only other E14 type you can get) on offer for comparison.
I have some HUE and kitted the rest out from IKEA. If I was doing again I’d just do all IKEA as I don’t care about colours so £7 for a G10 vs £40-50 for two is a big difference when have 8 and need 3 of these bulbs too at like £12. Fully accepting HUE colours are great but for smart home lights on/off/dim IKEA much better value. IKEA bulbs also work fine (but not firmware update) with HUE. One thing though. If you’re google home based need all HUE or HUE hub for IKEA. Apple need all HUE or all IKEA including hub. Alexa works with both and can even just get echo plus but don’t recommend that as can’t update firmware on either HUE or IKEA. Google supposed to work with IKEA soon. Hope this sort of makes sense to some as I’m basically stuck with a mix now and home kit only sees HUE so will need to run two hubs or firmware update and setup again every few months (what a pain!). Probably swap to all IKEA but do like scenes for HUE in study rooms.

In reply to this and the original post - you can get the same deal with e27 bulbs rather than e14, without needing an adapter in the original post. Original Argos E27 deal. In that deal you can choose between a Hue Tap and a motion sensor. That post was also rated cold, even though its the cheapest way of getting E27s without a 3 for 2 deal happening; cheaper than the 38 pound per bulb deal...

As commented elsewhere, these aren't designed to be primary lighting, however they're ideal as either desk lights or mood lighting in lamps.

Except Ikea don't even offer an Ambient white E14 bulb.

Also mixing different manufacturer bulbs in one room doesn't work well in my experience.

I've mostly Hue's however do have some Ikea Tradfri ambientesque GU10s in the kitchen which opens to our dining room, ideal to have them bright and cold white centric for food preparation then switch them to dimmed warm white centric for dinner parties etc....

Each to their own and I understand why people may think this is madness, but if it's just one part of your home automation system then spending a few extra quid on bulbs is neither here nor there in the big picture.

As I stated in the OP I've definitely noticed I'm using the Hues for more mood appropriate lighting and find it much much more relaxing.

The difference between correcting factual errors and criticising is perhaps too complex a concept for you to grasp methinks?

I couldn't give a poo about the deals popularity, for the people that use Hue and value what it can do for them hopefully they'll save a few quid and that's what the site is about.

Let me explain for you.
For me, they are a good security feature. If anyone approaches my house while I'm away and it's dark, my hue lights come on, in any sequence I chose. If my security cameras detect anything, my hue lights come on. If any sensors are triggered on my house alarm, my lights come on.
I have a relative who is deaf. If their smoke or carbon monoxide alarm goes off, the hue lights flash in a designated colour. If someone rings the door bell, the hue lights flash in a designated colour. They can set a timer on their mobile or via Alexa for things like cooking times or running a bath, and guess what? When the alarm sounds the hue lights will flash a designated colour.
So there's just a small number of the security and safety benefits that hue can provide.

Thanks OP . Good deal but voted cold by those who have a preference for a different manufacturer or don't see the value in the product it seems. Can't understand why those idiots can't just move on past a deal that they have no interest in instead of spouting vitriolic nonsense in an attempt to bolster their own self esteem. Not to mention sabotaging a genuine deal with cold votes.

Voted hot.

Sorry, that's not an Ambient bulb, it's only dimmable.

The Ambient ones allow you to change the white temperature as well as being dimmable.

In my experience, adapters make the overall height too high, looks weird in some lamps / ceilings.

Adapters are good if the design of the lamp makes the bulb hidden / not exposed.

I always find it entertaining when a forum poster espouses a load of off point nonsense, then, when called on it falls back on that old "This is a free country and I can say what I want" rhetoric.

He (she?) possibly has other big worries and stresses in their personal life at the moment, therefore can't help but 'project' that stress by criticising people spending their money on something rather then focusing on the point of the site which is finding good deals.

There again, given I've seen single bars of chocolate in one Tesco store in the Highlands get to over 500 degrees on here you have to wonder about the state of the nation.

I know what you mean. I started with 3 Ikea bulbs, Ikea remotes and a Philips hub. I then added a couple of Hue bulbs and they are soooo much better. The light is better, there is more functionality and the Ikea ones flicker now and again for no reason!

I've since been adding more and more Hue bulbs so that the Ikea ones are now relegated to bedrooms. The only ones I have left to replace are all 10 GU10's but I can see me going down the Ikea route for those as the Hue are just too expensive. Might do the £12 for the 4 kitchen ones (like you say nice to have cool light for cooking but warmer for eating) and £7 for the wetrooms.

Thanks for that, but aesthetically I personally couldn't use that shape bulb for the areas I need E14s.

The candelabra shape ones are so much more pleasing to the eye in certain situations, of course your mileage may vary.

Just to let you know Argos are also doing a deal on White Ambient GU10 twin packs.

2 x 2 Bulb Packs and a Motion Sensor for £100, now admittedly that's not Ikea GU10 pricing, but if you're after a couple of motion sensors anyway it's a pretty good deal.
