Maybe, but I don`t have any.
I can`t personally see the point of coloured lights in ones home. Unless for a brief time during a party?
And I can`t see that this is a `table lamp` To me a table lamp usually provides direct light so you can read or eat and indirect light so that you don`t need to turn on the main room lights. This is too dim to provide indirect lighting to a room and is barely able to provide enough light to read by (for instance) going by the Amazon video you need to sit in near darkness to appreciate it anyway. Its use with email etc is useful of course.

Voted hot for the price!

People saying they're only getting 1.5 hours or so out of it. Bit pathetic given the size of it.

Shame, I'll hold out for the Bloom to come down again. Heat anyway good price.

Schweet :-)

You can leave it plugged in too.

Yes but then the battery life depletes

I got one of these on a lightening deal and they're great. Well with the money

if you don’t have it it’s hard to appreciate what it can do. The colours are a bonus, but not why I use it - it’s mainly for the smart features: my lights wake me up in the morning, come on just before I arrive home, turn off when I leave if I accidentally leave them on, if I get out of bed between 1200 and 0600 one turns on automatically (using motion sensor) at a low red so I can see where I’m going without burning my retinas, I schedule them to turn on at times throughout the day with an element of randomness to make it look like people are home whilst I’m on holiday. Lastly, when I click on an activity for my harmony remote they are a part of it, they dim down automatically if I’m going to watch a movie.

These are the most useful features to me (but there are more), colours is just what I use to show them off to people if they ask about them, but I’d say I use them about 10% of the time. Of course, the energy they save goes on top of it all.

It’s 300 lumens by the way, which is as bright as any other desk lamp I have here.

Just so you know the LEDs in this have better colour than blooms - just want I’ve read. It’s apparently the difference between 2nd and 3rd gen. this also has the advantage of a battery so it is more useful than bloom

another £5 off if you get one from the warehouse

Got a couple of these, and use them a lot: watching tv; waking up; matching mood music, etc. Well worth it if you have a smart house setup.

Does this need a hub or can it work independently?

I have read it will work without the Hub/Bridge but by using it with the Hub/Bridge it offer much more.

It certainly does a good job as a table lamp to light my room so I don't need to turn on the main lights, not sure what makes you say that? I have this lamp.

Also, no it is not too dim, quite bright in fact and perfect for reading (again, coming from someone who has it and uses it daily).

But then effectively it is the same as the bloom with an option of having it cordless. (brighter than the bloom if anything)

Can switch on and off without the hub/app but then you wouldn't be able to change colours or dim etc or use the app at all.

Nice, very tempted to buy an additional one at this price.

Not strictly true. The on/off button allows you to choose a number of different colour changing mode sequences, such as candle light. You can also choose different colours on their own. You will need the hub to change brightness levels and the 64K colour variations.
On battery power the output of the light is halved and automatically switches off after 2hrs, this is to save the battery when connected to a hub. You then have to reconnect to the charger/mains supply for the light to power on.
On mains power the light goes into standby mode rather than off. I expect people who complain about the battery life don't read manuals.

The light output is pretty good tbh, We have a 3, the come outside when we are in the hot tub, they do set a nice scene in the living room, but more than that we have used lighting to help with bedtimes for our baby. he knows red lights mean sleep time. And if he wakes in the night and the Hue in his room is red, its not up time & will generally go back to sleep or play in his cot (he's only 11 months but seems to respond amazingly well to the colour cues).
In total we have 7 (3 Hue GO, 3 normal hue bulbs, and an old Bloom from before Hue was commonplace which was never meant to work with Hue, but does (instructional videos online how to make it talk to Hue hub)). I think they're great.
The other use is a flash to tell you somebody is at the door (we have SkyBell HD, you can mute the ringer so you dont wake your baby and have your lights indicate there is somebody at the door). Equally you can (but we dont) use integration with IFTTT to tell you when you get email, calls, facebook messages, the weather etc.
Plenty of uses beyond "mood lighting".

Thanks OP. More money on Hue stuff. Might have to start eating the boxes.

​Thanks for the answers. I'm a newbie to all this and was wondering if it's possible to use this as follows (or is there a better way?)

I want to put this in the kids room so it comes on automatically at about 7 15 am, so my kids start waking up by themselves! I've tried alarm clocks etc but they're not very effective.

I can't put a hue bulb or lifx bulb due to the current fittings etc and I wasn't previously aware of this product.

Would this be OK to do without a hue hub? I'm not in London and the hubs are quite expensive. Or is there a different way of doing this?

Personally I think it looks hideous. However, it is a good deal.

I kind of agree... BUT! It is really good to be able to alter the white "balance", you can have a bright bluish white light if you are working late at night, or a yellowish white if its late night watching TV on the sofa.

I also have a hue strip behind the TV. If you watch sport then you can set it to a green light and it actually looks really good.

Thanks for your reply, I can see some of the smart features could be useful if you are organised ! Most of my lighting is now LED or fluorescent, so unless I want to live at a lower light level, I won`t be saving energy. 300 lumens is only 20watts of old style lamps.and to me the shape of this lamp is just a semi-circle of light non directional, so not a lot use for illuminating something, not very pretty to look, unless it is maybe cycling through its colours but that would be boring or annoying after a while, to me.
But, different strokes...

Thanks for your reply, it obviously is nice for you to be able to do that, but it wouldn`t suit me. I just like as natural ambient light as possible` Colouring it would just be distracting. But it seems lots of others don`t agree or want to try it, judging by the heat this thread has got!

Good product. I bought 3 at this same price last month, on Amazon.

bought one in a Lightning Deal last month. Not that impressed, sending mine back for a refund. Just gonna stick to Hue bulbs in ceiling and table lamps.

You want to get your self a mood light and try it around your home . You won't be disappointed.

Doesn't need a hub, bit awkward to use as the button is on the back but it does a few different colours and you can dim or brighten it.

Used 2 for over 2 years as bedside lamps, batteries still as good as when new!

Much brighter than the bloom and can be used in exactly the same way - you don't have to run it on battery power.
