A Full Spectrum of Colors and Moods
LivingColors gives you an extensive palette of colors to express yourself. The lamp covers the full spectrum of visible light, from red, to violet, to everything in between. Cover your bedroom in warm yellow light to create a cozy reading environment or invigorate your living room with a bright green glow to create a lively party atmosphere. With 16 million different shades to select from, you'll be sure to find a color that matches your mood.

If you're feeling whimsical, the lamp also gives you a second, more-dynamic option: automatic mode. In this mode, LivingColors will cycle through all of its possible colors, creating an ever-shifting pattern of colors on your wall or ceiling. Using the remote, you can manually adjust how quickly the colors cycle.

Remote Control for Instant Color Selection
Using the included touch-sensitive remote control, you can instantly change the color. Simply tap a color on the remote's color wheel, and LivingColors will produce your selected color instantly.

The remote also allows you to adjust the brightness and saturation of your light. Saturate your light fully to produce a bold color, or thin it out for a more subtle effect. And because the remote uses radio frequency, it doesn't require a direct line-of-sight to work; you can control your lamp from anywhere in your room.

High-Output LEDs Fill Your Room with Color
The LivingColors lamp produces its light using seven light-emitting diodes (LEDs). These LEDs are powerful enough to bathe your wall or ceiling in color, and they produce 50 percent more light than the LEDs in the LivingColors Generation 1 model.

Elegant, Stylish Design
LivingColors doesn't just produce beautiful light; it's an attractive piece of furniture in its own right. The lamp features a translucent, bubble-like design that allows you to see into its metal interior. When illuminated, the lamp looks even more stylish. With its sleek modern aesthetic and a range of lighting options, this lamp is enough to completely transform a room.

The LivingColors LED Lamp is backed by a two-year warranty.

The remotes work great and the lights are very well made.
ThadFromVA
I really like the convenience of the remote, because it allows me to turn it off and set the brightness and color, without manually setting it.
Danny Boy
The light is great for accenting a room corner, or corners, as it can be in sync with other lights.

Color Name: Gen 2
Short version:
If it breaks out of warranty, there's no way to repair it. Philips offers zero customer support for the device--most divisions of the company don't even know it exists--and you can't find replacement parts for it.

Long version:
I bought this about two weeks after it first came out, during a trip to Amsterdam. (It wasn't yet available in the U.S.) I brought it home to the States and it worked perfectly. It's true that it's pretty dim, and the remote is kind of clunky and gigantic, but it's very pleasing in a small or darkened room.

Then about 16 months after I bought it, it stopped working.

I spent around 2.5 hours calling every Philips number I could find, both in the U.S. and in Europe, and NOBODY could help me. Most people I reached didn't even knew what I was talking about. I finally found a third party Philip replacement parts store in England and asked them if they sold spare remotes or bulb assemblies for this, and they didn't.

The official Philips websites for the lamp had no useful information at all regarding repairs.

So although I loved it, be warned that the support from Philips is abysmal, and there's no way to repair it if it breaks after your warranty period. It really soured me on Philips products because I ultimately felt that I paid way too much for a badly made product.

Its a very interesting concept. I think the colors are pretty amazing. If It cost 40$ Id probably be giving it 4 or 5 stars, but at this price I just feel it it not a high star purchase unless you just feel like you HAVE to have it. On the other hand, it pretty much does what it says it will. Others have covered the lack of repairability and the brightness issues. I have it in a very dim 10x12 foot room firing into top back corner off a bookshelf. It does color the whole room during the night without additional lights, but during the day its def more of a highlight spot lamp. Phillips probably needs to double the possible intensity and drop the price to 70$ or this will remain a highly niche product. As it stands, in order to really light a room you will need 3 or more of these suckers. Still as a really versatile nightlight or backlight or mood builder it is definitely a cool fixture that people will ooooh and ahhh over. I think my review should just about indicate why I give it 3 stars. There is a 5 star product in here somewhere, but this isnt quite the performance/value match I would look for to deserve that rating.

Fun lamp, eneded up at my bar, not very powerful so it does not color a room, just a corner.

Earlier, I purchased a Multi-Color E27 LED Light bulb w/ Remote from Amazon and have greatly enjoyed it, but craved more -- it simply didn't shine enough. My creative play-work demands being "in the flow" and mood lighting augments my output superbly, giving a real cinematic feel to even routine tasks like email. Before, I thought playing epic trailer music while pressing Reply would be enough, but clearly, I hadn't experienced mood lights.

Months ago, I read reviews of LivingColors and am surprised they still seem very rare Stateside (compared to earlier availability in Europe). A curiosity rather than a commercial phenomenon. While part of this may be due to cost, we each weigh our own priorities, right? Still, I hope for widespread adoption of these colors which feel alive, not unlike how every house has common lightbulbs. Since I already had such a good experience with limited mood lighting, I became intent on expanding my palette.

My ownership has only been several (intense) days, but what I tentatively conclude so far is: like cats, having only one LivingColors feels terribly lonely. Even the full-size Philips 69143/60/48 LivingColors Generation 2 Translucent Changing LED Lamp with Remote isn't enough to really light up my workspace at night, and the dynamics of contrast with another color adds so much value and spice. So, I also have a

Color Name: Gen 2 Verified Purchase
The lamp arrived in okay condition, but the packaging could be better. The wall transformer was not packed very well, so it rolled around in the box. The electrical prongs scratched the finish, even though the lamp was held in a satin bag. The lamp itself is smaller than I thought it would be, but it looks very modern and stylish. Initially, I was not happy that it was so small, but later I figured it was actually a good thing because the smaller size allows it to fit very well on a shelf or tucked away somewhere.

The main problem I had with the lamp was with the remote. I had a REALLY difficult time getting it to respond correctly. The lamp only works with the remote. After going though the troubleshooting guide, resetting and re-pairing the two, I traced it to a conflict with my WiFi. The instructions clearly say that there may be connection problems if you have a WiFi access point too close to the unit. It does not say how close is too close. I live in a small apartment, so anywhere in the apartment might be too close. I turned off the router, PS3, computer, smartphone, and TV WiFi dongle, and then I was able to use the remote, until my neighbors used their computer.

When I did occasionally get the lamp to respond, even at the brightest settings, the light output was poor. I would need at least four lamps to light up the living room. Two lamps on one side might provide a bit of mood lighting, but it would not even come close to the living room lighting display shown in the promotional video and photos. This lamp is suppose to have 50% more light than the original. Maybe generation 4 or 5 will be a success.
