For the uninitiated, could you elaborate on "It's not ambiance"? Is that a way of saying not dimmable?

This is dimmable, but white ambiance allows you to change from warm light to day light as well as dimming.

So, personally, these are fine for most places you don't need colors, except maybe a bathroom? (My wife likes having a choice of lighting for makeup, I don't understand but apparently that's important. )

Might want ambiance in rooms you use a lot to change the tone of the room, bright light being seen as more energetic than warm light.

But that's mostly preference.

The difference:
- White ambiance bulbs allow you to change the temperature of the white light (from soft white around 2700k up to daylight around 5/6000k). So the same bulb can put out softer, yellower light all the way up to the brighter, blueish light.
- These non-ambiance bulbs are like tradition lights which give off only one temperature of light (generally soft white, which is the yellower light.)

Both are dimmable and the Hue lights generally have very good dimming ranges.

Hope that helps!
