Good price for single lamp. Just bear in mind the ambiance lamps are just as good in most situations and much cheaper. I've got 3 coloured lamps and they are pretty much permanently on an orange or white setting.

I said it. Now say large disposable income and £34.99 doesn't seem too bad.

I’ll second this, colour is very much a novelty and the White Ambience provides much more practicality than colour.

Ive found the colour ones to be excellent, i have dozens of different colour themes saved and I have one of these on most nights when relaxing in the living room. I think the white bulbs are better for use on main lights though. I prefer using the colour bulbs on lamps placed around the room.
I find the colour MiLights great for a third of the price.

I was waiting for this but gave up and tried the Ikea bulbs. Got some areas with the £7 Ones and some with the £14 white temperatures ones and both work fine with the rest of my hue. Haven’t bothered setting up an Ikea to get homekit and sori yet but works fine with my hue dimmer switches, motion sensors, the hue app and Alexa

That’s what I’m gonna do. Only bulbs left to swap out are GU10’s but when I’ve got 10 to change then I can’t do Philips. 6 of them will be the £7 ones and 4 in the kitchen will be the £12 ones

I had that dilemma, too, but ended up installing Alexa compatible light switches to control my batch of GU10s

Although, it can't control individual bulbs, it's works out ok, as I would only switch the entire room on or off anyway. If I had individual bulbs, I'd only group them all anyway

Which isn't that much when you consider what it can do compared to a standard/cheaper bulb and the expected lifespan.
One bulb for what some people can't afford to spend on groceries. Outrageous price.

I have 2 dimming bulbs but find the colour temp to be too warm/incandescent. Is the default colour temp of the £12 bulbs cooler than the dimming bulbs?

You could argue that some people can't afford to spend a month's gym membership on groceries. Or a full tank of petrol. Etc etc. It's not an essential item, people aren't forced to buy it. That said, I do agree that the price is quite high, the margins must be really high on these. Classic capitalism, it's priced at the highest possible point where people are still willing to pay for it.
Unless you're fussed about colour, smart switches are the way to go in my opinion - you have the hassle of installation but massively cheaper.

I've got a very large and very disposable income because I don't go spending £34.99 on light bulbs.

I've been after one for my daughter's room. Seriously tempted.

You don't get a remote or anything do you? You need the mobile app to change colours etc.?

Edit: Ah, you need the bridge as well it sounds. I may be better off with a starter set.
Edited by: "FlangeNut123" 21st Jan
These are usually on sale for around £12 much better as there's no bridge needed they connect straight to your WiFi and work with Alexa.

Get a Xiaomi yeelight, much cheaper and no bridge needed.

Now £15 still a good buy

No way I am going to buy one but just to satisfy my curiousity can anyone explain why they are so dear? Obviously you can buy bulbs much more cheaply, what does this one do apart from shine?
Do I need a hue hub to connect this to my echo dot?
The problem with smart bulbs is the light switch needs to be left on to work and replacing every bulb in a large house gets very, very expensive.

Replacing light switches is the way to go, but with a lack of neutral behind light switches with uk wiring, then it limits what switches can be used.

Anybody done and recent research on smart light switches for use in the uk and preferably with dimming capability?

Ive already got a Philips colour B22 in the kitchen and an Ikea remote to control it. When I swap out the GU10s in the cooking area I’ll group them but also add them all to the Ikea remote so could control independently via apps/Alexa but also by just a single button for the whole room.

the other two rooms are wet rooms and I’m gonna install motion sensors so no need for a button at all. Gotta make any changes as easy as possible for the family to use/get heads around

Have a look at LightwaveRF.
I have an Innr colour bulb and rarely use the colour feature.

Basically only got it so that I can make the room green to improve the tracking of my PSVR and peripherals!

Well done. You should try spending it in what you prefer to spend it on rather than wasting time telling people what you don't spend it on.

Do you have access to Google? That's a better place to ask questions if you need your curiosity satisfied. I'm sure it can provide lots of different types of satisfaction.

I've got a Fibaro dimmer that doesn't require a neutral, from Amazon if the light load is less than 50w you will need the bypass as well. Also consider how deep your backbox is before buying because it can be tricky getting it all crammed in.
hang on so if you buy

1) Alexa (was £34.99 now gone back up to £49.99)
2) Philips Hue Bridge (44.99)

You can use Ikea wireless bulbs with it?

Because the opinion isn't based on this products price. It's based on that individual not seeing personal value.

The vast majority of things I see on here I have zero use for. That doesn't mean that it isn't a deal for someone on here. I generally only vote on things I am personally interested in or have knowledge of.
Great price - thanks OP. Voted hot
These bulbs must have some of the highest markups ever. Couple of quid to make? then add like a 2000% markup because people are buying them at that price? Sure.

They may not be as good but when the multi colour bulbs from YI/Xiaomi which are almosttt as good and don't require a bridge and cost a third of this single colour bulb it just seems wrong. Not voting cold though of course, just saying.
