A simple trick helps

About a year ago, the Philips Hue Ambiance Gradient Lightstrip came onto the market. For me, it is the successor of the Hue Lightstrip Plus, which has become better in all areas.

But there are always questions, such as from Robin: I bought an Ambiance Gradient Lightstrip and a one-metre extension.

Made for gaming, not entertainment

Last Thursday, Philips Hue presented its new products, among them an adapted version of the Philips Hue Play Gradient Lightstrip, which was previously available for TVs in sizes of 55, 65 and 75 inches.

When it was announced at the beginning of August that Philips Hue would probably offer its Play Gradient Lightstrip for PC monitors with 24 to 27 inches, the outcry was great.
