Hue Play Bundle (Hue Play 2-Pack and Hue Bridge) + $50 Best Buy Gift Card | $120 | Best Buy | Requires a free MyBestBuy membership
The Hue Play is the best backlight around and this bundle essentially saves you $45 if you want to go all-in on Philip’s smart lighting system. Plus, you get a $50—that’s extra money, baby. On top of that, if you’re a a Best Buy membership (it’s free to sign up) the price is just $120.
I’ve been using a pair with my gaming desktop for the past few months and it’s easily my favorite RGB accessory. Not only does it look great when you first boot it up, but unlike the rest of my setup, I see the lights working in game.
I’ve used it with both Razer Synapse, which displays game-specific lighting effects (e.g., flashing green when a Set item drops in Diablo III or glows blue when my shield is up as Reinhardt in Overwatch) and the Hue Sync app, which samples and reflects whatever is on your screen. Of course, how much you’ll get from the former depends on developer adoption.
Not much of a gamer? You can also just mount Hue Play behind your TV and use it as a backlight. It functions a lot like the Hue LightStrip, but easier to set up. Of course, it works with all of the Hue accessories you already own.
This offer is unlikely to last. So, I’d act fast.
