It's too expensive.
Plus, it does not support Dolby Vision, which is a NoGo for me.
I have a few Philips Hue bulbs and a Hue LightStrip+ in my living room.
I used to have a Philips TV with ambilight, which also synced the Tv's content with the Hue lights.
I found it fun at the beginning but after a few months I turned the sync off.
I only used a static warm white light from the ambilight, which helped with black tones (the TV was a LCD with no local dimming although the brochure advertized dimming zones!).
I now switched to an OLED TV and don't need this warm white light anymore.
There is another solution to sync lightstrips (but no Philips Hue or bulbs) with the content of your TV. It's the Diva or X4 by HDFury, which do other things beside lighting
It"s even more expensive at 289 USD for the 1080p only X4 or 449 for the Diva plus 99 USD for the light strips but I bet it would be more reliable than Philips's solution.
And it certainly works with Dolby Vision and HDR10+.
