  • Bright, high-quality design
  • Stylish
  • The dimmable switch adapts to any lighting mood, from relaxed and warm dinner lighting to bright and energizing
  • Can be used instead of overhead lighting

  • The table ledge is stable for placing a tablet or book or for use as a night stand book light
  • Can be used in the bathroom too
  • The design is minimalist and clean

  • The dimmer/on/off control is at the top of the cord away from the lamp and in a pinch you can control with a touch


  • The lamp is made of plastic and has a cheap look and feel
  • It’s not adjustable, so you can’t adjust the direction of the lamp
  • It has the potential to get hot, so make sure you leave it far enough away from anything flammable
  • The controls are small and can be tricky to use, even though they are highly anticipated
  • The included manual is a bit overkill and contains a lot of repetitive information

I love my Hue systems, the fixtures and bulbs work seamlessly together, and it's pretty much a plug-and-play experience. So, if you're looking for a smart lighting solution, this smart lamp is a great choice.

It is energy efficient, saving up to 70% on your electric costs compared to incandescent lamps. The warm and cool white light also adjusts slowly according to your light preferences.

This lamp gives you the ability to hit "the pause button," which lets you focus in on the task at hand by turning off the lamps.

The lamp is fog resistant and uses a clamp mount making it easy to install. The lamp is IP20 rated meaning it's protected against moisture.

One thing you'll need to do initially is connect the lamp to the Hue Bridge to provide a wireless connection between the lamp and your smartphone / tablet.
