Worked great and then not

I purchased these when they were on sale awhile ago and installed them and all seemed well at first. The connection to them via Bluetooth tends to be hit or miss but I only used them now and then and it was not a problem until recently when we started to use one continuously. After a few weeks of use the bulb started flickering and then turning on and off by itself and was extremely hot to the touch and has failed. A second bulb when running in white mode flickers and to clear this problem you need to change it to a solid colour and back again. Out of my 6 bulbs I now have two failures. There is not Google/Bixby/Siri/Alexia support. Not an acceptable device and I am going to change to the Phipps product.

Great, fun product

I don’t get why people complain about these. I bought my first ones years ago and they still work properly, with no issues whatsoever. I just bought 2 extra ones, again, no issue. Great as gifts too and super easy to use!

Not working after a few months

When it worked it was mediocre at best. There is a 4 second lag between the time you turn on the switch and the bulb actually lights up which can be annoying. The light is also not very bright. Colours are off when you use the app. It's hard to get an orange tone even when you think you are hitting the right spot in the app. As mentioned in the title the thing stopped working after a few months, probably 4 or 5. It started with random times when the bulb just went off. After a while it would turn on again. Then the time between failures increased. I contacted MIPOW and that was an even more disappointing experience. They wanted video proof that the bulb was failing so I provided it. Then they wanted me to pay shipping to California. Why not send me a prepaid label? or better yet, why not just send a new one??! Since a traceable shipping option costs more than half of what I paid for I decided to just take the lost. Hope my experience helps others to avoid dealing with this company.

MIPOW PLAYBULB rainbow A19 Smart LED Light Bulb (BTL200) - Multi-colour

Really enjoy it for softening the lighting in the room..I call it like mood lighting..

Not worth the hassle

These bulbs are not a low cost alternative for Philips Hue bulbs. I have connection issues where I have to shut them off then on again repeatedly, the app is completely sub standard, and I've already had one of them fail on me. I'm sticking with Hue bulbs from now on. These just aren't worth the aggravation.

Good product

Nice and easy to set up. On Android app wants you to watch tutorial each time you open it a little annoying. Takes about 20 seconds for app to find bulb when you reconnect. Overall a good buy.

Works like it should

You open the box, screw in the bulb power on your lamp and enable your Bluetooth. download the application and thats about it. Works very well . I guess unless you have a smart phone from the Stone Age this setup is pretty much plug and enjoy.

Great light

Bought one for my back deck. Works great. Lots of fun. No connection problems (iPhone 6) Buying more

  • from Belleville, ON

works great

i bought one when i went to Best Buy and i screwed it in to my ceiling light and downloaded the app and was surprised how well it worked. i am using an ipod touch 5th generation which i bought in march 2014 and there has been no problems so far. i am planinng on buying 4 more for my music studio since u can group them together or change the colours individually. i would recommend them, im not sure what some of these other people are talking about when they say the app doesnt work, its probably their phone.

Bluetooth Connection Issues

These looked like an awesome toy so I purchased quite a few for friends and family. However, I knew mine I had planned to use as a main light in my room. Since these were on sale I decided to buy them as apposed to the Philips HUE light. I cannot tell if its the bulb or the app but it never auto connects and there are times when the bulb doesn't show up on bluetooth at all which means I need to get up and turn the light switch off and wait before turning back on to connect it. (turning bluetooth on and off did not work.) This was disappointing since I have a newborn and was really looking to turn off or adjust the light while nursing. My honest opinion, pay the extra money and purchase the Philips HUE smart bulb.

Cool When They Connect

Well I purchased 4 while they were on sale for my living room and bed room. The app worked great on initial set up, but then I had connection issues everytime after. Obviously the signal is strong as it will detect all 4 lights, but then it drops in and out. I have yet to try the app on a friends Iphone yet so I'm not sure if it is just an app issue. I have had the bulbs work (just not consistently) on various Android devices. I considered returning to Best Buy due to the inconsistency of connection but decided to contact the manufacturer instead. They thanked me for my complaint atleast so there is that ;) Overall if the app works correctly they are great but otherwise maybe hold out or test in store first if possible.

Awesome Room Enhancer

We originally purchased a 3 pack of these bulbs the last time they were on sale, and today we are back to purchase three more at the sale price. I think "millions of colours" is a little overselling the variety of colours that the bulbs give out, but we're back for more so obviously we love them. Currently we have 2 in the bedroom, they really do help with winding down before bed. It's pretty cool to be able to have it on one setting for reading, and then use your ipad app to set it to dimmed red for winding down. We have one in the rec room and it is the perfect light to watch TV to. Just enough to distract from the brightness of the screen, while not being overpowering. I'd like to try the garden version next.

Good value...

You do not need Bluetooth 4.3 for these bulbs! They will work with android 4.3 and above. Most smartphones made in the last couple of years will work with these bulbs. I have an xperia z1 works no problems. They are Bluetooth 4.0 compatible. I've had a play with the bulbs and I'm happy with them. Grouping and single control seem to work well. There are cons though. Bluetooth range seems to be an issue, only one phone/tab can control them at a time each device has to disconnect before the next can control it etc. The most annoying thing is that the android app keeps wanting me to take the tour every time I open the app.... arghhhhhh. Overall these are good for the money though and can imagine buying more than the 3 I already have over time.

Finally an affordable alternative.

I've been wanting Philips Hue for a few years now, but couldn't get over the price for the 3 light bulb starter set. So when I came across a 3 pack of these for less than 1/2 the price of the Philips bulbs, I cautiously decided to try it out. I expected buggy software, complicated set up...instead I was very pleasantly surprised. It is Bluetooth (not wifi), and occaisionally there is a latency when I adjust a group of bulbs, but that's quite rare. And at this price, I couldn't care less since I can now create any combination of colours to suit the mood of the room (mainly as a sleep aid to counter the blue light of the computer) at a very reasonable price.

Looks nice. I could not download app as my phone was not compatible. Bought a new phone to the specs on the box. Still no go. Their help now say you need Bluetooth 4.3. Good luck finding a phone that will work. Leave it in the store!!
