Is there a big difference between the 2? £60+ worth of difference ?

There is; newer model has been around £100 on Amazon. I d hold off. Blue and greens are much richer on newer version. Check out on you tube (Philips hue gen 3 vs gen 2)

I own a few of each gen 2 and 3 and tbh I don't really have any problems with them they both do what's needed and mix well colour wise for this price would be silly to pay the extra just for a little extra depth I don't even need any more and im thinkin of getting it

I ve had them side by side; difference is obvious. Price is good for these; worth extra £25 when on deal ? Personal choice. I d prefer the richer colour version- reason obvious; mixes colour much better- hence richer colours!

ordered thanks op

How do these bulbs compare with the Hive ones? I don't have a hive heating system but their pricing seems good and you can integrate control of mains power sockets as well. I'm primarily wanting the system to use with Alexa.

​What do you mean by richer colours? Are there specific bulbs for each generation? I'm only going to use normal white so what's the difference like?

I purchased a 2nd gen bulb and tried to use alongside my gen 3 bulbs but app would not control this bulb. not sure if it should have worked but took it back to store for a refund.

Ordered, decent price for hub and 3 bulbs. Cheers

Great price even if it has been cheaper before. Now to decide if if actually need anymore bulbs...

​​Was only looking for 2 of the White Ambiance for outdoor porch lights, but may aswell get these now as at least the colour is there when/if I need it. Be good to create a bit of atmosphere at Christmas/Halloween etc. Now my only decision is 2 of the individual bulbs (at £53.98) or the starter set for £86.99 and sell the hub, effectively giving me 3 bulbs for around £55!

If you're happy with HD and not in a rush to throw out all of your blu-rays of films shot in SD to re-buy them in overpriced 4K, then don't worry! I have this version of Hue, they're amazing and do everything I want them to. Not one person has ever commented "if only the colours were a bit richer!" oO

many thanks, op. I've missed every other deal over Christmas but finally got it. that's the wife's present sorted

Thanks OP, I've been waiting for a hue deal! Ordered

Google it up people rater than asking if there's a difference. If youre not savvy enough for that, you probably shouldn't be getting smart bulbs. Just saying.

Edit: it says "richer colour" in the description of the general g3

Because if you actuslly go Into the amazon link, it says there's a newer version available for 149.99. Click the link and it says that one is richer colour bulbs. ..

I would like to purchase a wireless lighting system, which is the best value and works with Alexa, do I need a hub or just the bulbs? Any advise most welcome

Bought the £60 e27 kit the other day from maplin. That will be going back and this one ordered for the extra £26 for an extra bulb and option of colour.

You need 1 Hub which controls up to 50 bulbs.

Is the hub in the v2 the same as the v3?

How energy efficient actually are these baring in mind they're always on standby?

​Hub is the same. Bulbs are different.

Anyone know if i can mix gen 2 and gen 3 bulbs? I have plenty B22 fittings in rooms that I don't mind about the Richer Colour such as hall/landing so thinking could get this then buy gen 3 bulbs for living room etc. But wanting know if all can be controlled by same hub (and also by alexa) ?

Same, V2 with V2 hub. I have one Richer Colours bulb with 4 V2 bulbs and I can't tell any difference.

This is your best option to get into wireless lighting now. You do need the hub that is included with these bulbs.
