Philips Hue 1st generation starter kit is now for only $99.99. Ground Shipping is $9.99. It is a good deal for anyone wanting a Philips Hue Kit and are deterred by the High Cost of the 2nd Generation.

the BR30 is designed for recessed lighting like ceiling lights so the light is directed outward. the E26 is more omnidirectional.

How about the A19 vs E26? The BR30 is more for recessed, directional light.

One of the best prices I have ever seen for this kit! If you are looking for the bulbs then this would be the time to buy...

** If you are a baller and buy 3 kits at a time you will get that $10 shipping fee waived! Lol

I believe A19 is the bulb shape whole E26 is the socket type. It's like comparing apples to oranges.

Buyer beware when dealing directly with Philips. I tried to get in on this deal last time for two sets and got the order confirmation, got charged, and never got the bulbs. Turns out they unilaterally cancelled by order, presumably to inventory issues.

Nonetheless, I am giving it another go around this time since I was able to get three sets w/free shipping and dodged sales tax by sending to Indiana.

Deals for this set normally go between $129 & $149. Now's the time to buy. Especially if you're going for the BR30s, which I haven't seen on sale to this magnitude yet.

I have a wink hub. Can I control colors and stuff with the wink app ?

Anyone upgrade from the A19 to BR30s in their recessed lighting? I have A19s in all of my recessed lights and I'm wondering if it's worth making the upgrade to BR30s.
