Single GU10 bulb is £49.95 so if you are looking to add 3 additional bulbs to your existing setup, then this is a saving of £14.86 + whatever you can sell the hub for.

If you have to ask, then maybe these aren't for you. Looking on the Philips Hue website is a good place to start, followed by reading the Amazon reviews.

I have both the Phillips Hue and a Chinese version, and there are some significant difference of which makes the Philips Hue a much better product in my opinion.

- Chinese one only works with a remote, whereas the Hue works from a smartphone app and many other smartphone apps available for iOS and Android.
- Chinese one only works with a specific number of colours, whereas you can literally choose any colour and shade from a pallete and even choose a colour scheme from photos.
- Hue can dance to the music, Chinese one can't.
- Hue app provides a wake up functionality to set at a certain time and geofencing so it turns on and off when you leave or come home.
- Hue can be integrated with IFTTT, Chinese one can't.
- Brightness on Hue is a lot better than the Chinese version.
- Hue works with Siri, Chinese version doesn't.
- Hue can set scenes, which will set each bulb to a different colour to achieve a particular scheme, Chinese version doesn't.
- Many, many, many more advantages...

However I appreciate that some of the above can just be a novelty to some people which then they should just purchase the cheaper Chinese alternative. For me personally, this is a step in the right direction to building a 'smart' home and integrating with many other products.
Owch - A lot of money for something nobody has ever wished for. Unless you REALLY need to show off to your aspiring girlfriend when you invite her over.
I work for a huge industrial electrical manufacturer and can get something similar for cost price, yet i would still ask the question... "why?"

*yes the above is my opinion and yours will likely differ
