This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

At £99 this is the lowest it's been in the UK so a pretty good deal. This is only on the white double pack.

Been holding out on a decent deal for these (and the Hue Go, still waiting on that one) and at this price it's not bad.

This is a seriously good bit of kit. I’ve got them installed in my bedroom. Sometimes I like the room lit blue, sometimes red. Different colours for different.....needs

Are they not 110v?
Have been cheaper before if bought from abroad?
I've been looking at these too. a couple of questions if you don't mind. first, do you need the hub for these to work on the pc?
and second how well do these work with pc gaming?

Don’t need the hub but you would need the Philips bridge.

Yes, you need a Hue hub v2 or V2.1. A "square with rounded corners one", like the ones that you buy individually or as part of a much better value starter kit. The hub plugs into your router. So long as you aren't buying an old circular one, you'll be fine.

-Edit: @Valvo is technically right, in that Hue don't call them hubs, they're called Bridges, but everyone I know IRL and have dealt with calls them hubs

You can get them for £20-28 from people who buy the starter packs, keep the bulbs, and sell the hubs. Or you can buy yourself a starter kit, either with cheaper plain white Hue bulbs, or even better, Ambiance and Colour bulbs which you can use to expand the system through your whole room.

And it works brilliantly, you add the lights to your hub, update them, add them to an entertainment zone, and then run Hue Sync on your PC. You can also do the Razor sync etc stuff too if you want, but I just use straight Hue Sync.

I cheated and used normal Hue colour bulbs in IKEA lamps either side of my monitor. These light bars are vastly superior to my ghetto solution.

Look up Hue Sync on YouTube.

Thank you for the detailed response :)! Just bought these. Can't wait for them to arrive tomorrow.

These are just colour ZigBee lights that's compatible with the Hue Entertainments API.

If you're looking for something to give you result you want, you want an Ambilight TV or one of the hacked capture solutions like a HDCP-stripping switch, HDMI - AV adapter, and a Pi with a AV capture device. There may be some FPGA box that'll do it all in one, but I've not seen one.

The Specs say “Range 100 V - 240 V
50-60 Hz” so you’re incorrect they’re not

This is a good price for these compared to normal, don't see them on deal very often.

I would however caution people that the power supply on my set made an audible electrical buzzing sound when both lights were plugged in. If you get these might be worth checking that yours do not make this noise.

Not seen it mentioned, but the back of these are black for some reason.

These are great, probably my favourite hue lights. I have these for my pc setup and they work great as an ambilight type setup. Really bright as well and accurate colours, provides very good accent lighting. The only thing I wish they'd did with these is use the same connector on the power supply as the lightstrip one, I've got one light strip and two of these and I would've loved to put them all in the one power brick rather than having to use 2 giant separate plugs but that's nitpicking.
Can these be used independently as mold lights or does it have to be used with an av source?

I'd hope they don't give off mould. But as mood lights yes they can be used with the normal hue hub.
so the white ones are 99 but the black ones are 119. Bit racist if you ask me.
Has anyone got any pictures of these installed? Interested in reviews and different ways they’ve been used.
Can you link these to your tv to act like an ambilight?
I will be going to Canada and USA tomorrow has any bought a pair of any Philips hue products from there that work in the uk I get the bulbs won’t work but what about the light bars ?
Hue light strips are better, I use them behind my TV. Much brighter.

Only when used with a PC as you need to be running the app for it to replicate what's on screen.

Not got pictures of the units themselves but I used the 3m pads to stick one to the left and right of my monitor so you cant see the units themselves but still get a glow. I've got a lightstrip stuck to the bottom of the desk and i sync them three with the hue sync app along with my razer chroma speakers. My TVs got ambilight built in so its insane when ive got everything running at once lol. Excuse the cable mess.37879048-gtJOY.jpg

Wondering what they would look like behind my tv or if they could be used elsewhere in the room to give a good light?

I haven't got these, but I've got the Philips hue light strip, there is free low resource software called screen bloom. You can change how bright and how fast the lights will flow with your movie or game. With games you'd usually choose a faster update time.
What ever is on your screen/s can be portrayed by the lights.
You can also choose what zones you want the lights to pick colours from.

People used to use a smartphone as the camera to capture screen content for use with these Philips lights! As in, to get the lights to copy whats going on on the tv/monitor.
I think ambient lighting behind a screen amplifies the experience and eases eye strain since setting up my light strip behind my telly years ago, I wouldn't want to use my monitor or tv without them now (unless it's daytime) I now have a Philips tv with them built in to the back so my light strip can be used elsewhere.

ID say go for two sets of these for a TV just so you get coverage round all sides, or go for a lightstrip. That being said my TV with ambilight only has it on the left and right and I find that fine. I'm guessing since it's with a TV you just want it for extra ambient lighting and not for any ambilight type stuff, in which case you'd probably want all side to have even coverage. Lightstrips are probably a cheaper option overall for behind TV

Curios as to why you're using screenbloom and not the hue application? I used screenbloom before the hue application and the hue application is better imo.

Screenbloom for motion lighting control on what you're watching, do you mean the official app? I use screenbloom on the pc, the winhue program for static lighting, the official app on my phone.

WIth the Hue app you just need to create an 'entertainment area' and it will do exactly the same.
