Not a bad price but techrabbit has refurbs of these for this price sometimes too. I've had a set of these in my can lights for a year and they're good. Just make sure you don't use them with a dimmer. Even with the dimmer on full power it was causing the lights to reset

Which ones are made for outdoor spotlights? Or aren't there any, yet? I've been thinking that would be a better option than having to leave them on all the time when we are away for a couple of days.

just replace your switch for the light, almost any controllable bulb, while expensive as well, will be very shy of the wattage a normal outdoor flood light puts out (normally around 100W/bulb to be sufficient.)

This.

Replacing your bulbs is expensive and doesn't make for a very "smart" home unless you're going to rewire your switch to be always on like one of the amazon reviews for this product, which is also dumb.

Get a smart switch, unless you really need colors, then you'll need a smart switch and a smart bulb.

Or for outdoors, if all you want is it to turn on at night when you're away, they make a ton of light sensing adapters that just automatically turn them on at night and off when the sun rises

So, these light bulbs are supposed to save money compared to regular bulbs for the next 15-20 years of their 'lives'. But at $36 upfront cost of one bulb, what savings are we talking about here?? Also, mixture of 16 million colors is way too much, most households need med-low-high light setting at best.
Hue isn't really about saving money. Hue's main thing - gimmick, really - is flashy functionality.

If you want to save money, buy a big case of standard A20 / 3000K LED bulbs (enough for all the bulbs in your house plus a few extras for spares - 3000K is the best color temperature at home, in my opinion) for ~$1 each and replace every single incandescent/halogen/fluorescent bulb in your house. Enjoy the next decade (probably) without having to replace another bulb.

This is 1 bulb, right? The complete kit for $100 (also often on sale for like $70-80 I think) contain how many bulbs? 3?

These don't drop much more than this. I have the previous generation ones refurbed which cost me $31.99 each.

you're misunderstanding the product here... there is absolutely nothing about Hue or any other color changing bulb that's about saving money. it's all about "look at me"...

what your thinking of is replacing a 60W incand bulb with a 9W LED. will it save money? obviously. the break-even point at MSRP on most bulbs is silly, many years out for most households, on sale it becomes much more realistic and will save money over time... any real/noticeable amount of money is debatable and gets even smaller if you're already good about turning lights off as you exit a room. i was trained very rigorously as a youngster, lights go on when you enter a room, off when exit and the next rooms lights go on as you enter, and so on... so, for me, the swap to LEDs really hasn't done much.

Agreed, I've been watching BR30's for a while. Although eBay may have some 3rd gen for $35-$40, they are all refurbished. These are new from Amazon.

Those kits aren't BR30.

If you purchase from techrabbit and other retailers you'll be ineligible for a warranty claim. Had the power supply on my hue lights fail and they refused to help me since it wasn't bought from Phillip, Best Buy, Walmart or Amazon.
