That is a good deal. The RGB colour bulbs are often x2 price.

I use mine to signal important unread email waiting, with colour indicating the source: business, personal, or calendar appointment notification.

Gmail filter to label email by source and content => IFTTT to set colour bulb

But it had to be changed recently when Google cut off external access to Gmail by services like IFTTT. Now you have to run an automatic script from Google Sheets to push the email to IFTTT instead of pulling it from the IFTTT end.

For those of you who have bought this already, can you comment on the brightness of the non-white colours at 100% brightness?

Last Boxing Day, I bought the Merkury 75W colour bulbs from Walmart for $10. They were nice and bright when displaying a white colour, but the colours (red, green, blue, purple, etc.) were very significantly dimmer even at 100% brightness. I'd like to know if these bulbs have the same problem.

IMO has the same issue on non-white colours. Some colours are more ‘’acceptable’ than others but won’t usually produce the same brightness as the white.

Comparing both at 100% brightness for default white and purple.

Not sure if the pictures do it justice, but not sure how else I can demonstrate it as a non-lighting expert Face Without Mouth

$10 for a light bulb is quite steep...

What do you guys use the colour changing feature for?

Just curious, never understood the appeal
$10 for a full-colour LED light bulb with built in programmable timer and WiFi smart control for on/off, dimming and colour is ridiculously cheap. You can connect it to a smart home automation system via a home hub or free internet service, and the things you can do with it are limited only by your imagination. Turn the lights on by proximity when your cell phone arrives home at night. Say "Alexa, set romantic lighting mode" without getting off the couch. :)
