Buggy firmware spoils great potential
Reviewed in Australia on 23 February 2020
Bought two of these for my children's study desks. I love the even workspace Illumination they provide, and the kids love the colour options.
Unfortunately, there is a major bug that spoils the experience using these with a hue bridge. The controller always lags one instruction behind. So, if the lights are set to warm white and you choose a scene in the hue app that would change it to red, nothing will happen ... Until you make another change, and then it will turn red instead of what your next change was. If using colour or brightness sliders you won't notice a problem, because they'll only be one increment from what you actually set. But when using scenes or using a voice assistant to directly apply a setting, you have to do everything twice. But the hue app doesn't let you choose the same scene twice consecutively, so to get the effect you want to have to select scene -> turn off -> turn back on. (On and Off commands do at least work the first time!)
