I'm in for two. It's half price. Yes, they aren't as bright - but for my application (under-counter lighting) they're going to work just fine. $59 for two strips shipped without a sams club membership. Yeah, I'm in for that.

Edit:

And to all those crapping on the product - if you're not into the automated lighting or home automation, please move along instead of crapping on the thread.

I intend on adding these to my home automation, so that at night when I go into the kitchen the under-counter lights turn on to illuminate the area.

Holidays, I'll change the colors around for Valentines day, Christmas, Halloween, Independence Day, etc.

But I will not be turning these on/off manually 99.5% of the time. I won't touch a switch, I won't clap my hands, I won't open an app on my phone or even control them with my Echo. They'll turn on when the light level is low and I'm in the room.

If it's not automated, it's not home automation.

I have some cheap strips and wifi adapters that I bought at Christmas and haven't really done anything with yet. Can't seem to figure out where to put them that they would actually be useful. I already have a hue bridge and some white bulbs. Can anyone speak to the difference between the 1st and 2nd gen lightstrips? Are they similar to the problems with the 1st gen bulbs? The 2nd gen generally sell for like $75, so $27 is significantly less. But not knowing the difference in the two, I'm not sure.

I know some will say not worth it unless gen 2, etc. But is this not a great deal for an older product?

Google and you shall find. From How-To Geek Website:
Furthermore, the 2nd-generation Hue LightStrip Plus lights are 10x brighter than the previous 1st-generation light strips, and they shine at an impressive 1,600 lumens. Plus, you can connect extension strips to the newer model to make longer strings of light. The newer LightStrip Plus also has more vibrant greens and blues. If they are only 1/10 the lumens of the 2nd gen, I'd say that they aren't useful for much but maybe mood lighting.

as i imagined, a pricey product that is designed to make us lazier.
Well, I do really like my hue white bulbs. Have them in all the lamps in my living room, grouped together, and I can just ask Alexa to turn on one or all at once, have them set to come on automatically in the morning so I can see coming down the stairs, and can adjust the brightness with my phone, ipad, or Alexa. I use them much more than I ever thought I would. That said, I haven't dived into the color bulbs because I just can't justify the cost of the bulbs. To answer your original question about the strips - many people use them on the back of their TV - it's supposed to reduce eye strain. But I don't usually watch enough TV at a time to cause eyestrain. Some TVs can even interface and change the color of the strip depending on the movie or show that you are watching I believe.
