- September 18th, 2020Average rating4out of 5 stars4.0Nice, but responds to app weirdly(today only)I would recommend this to a friend!Purchased for: SonThis is a brilliant product of the Powered Up line, but I have a question: Why did this only not work today? This Hub has worked nicely for 2 years with the handset, and worked well for 3 months with the powered up app. But suddenly, today, it stopped working. I used the programming section of the app for this product, and the sensor, Large motor, train light and train motor have functioned correctly in all areas. But today, when I pressed the button to start the program, the light flashed across my screen to indicate that the program was running, but with my machine, nothing was happening. I don’t know if anything like this has happened to you, but it did for me. What might have happened?21 September 2020Natasha, LEGO® Customer ServiceOh dear, that doesn't sound good. Please try a full set of new batteries and update your app, if there's any updates available. If that doesn't fix the issue, get in touch with our experts at LEGO.build/Service-BV for more help.Play Experience5.0Level of Difficulty4.0Value for Money3.0Build Time: 3 hrsBuilding Experience: Intermediate LEGO builderWas this helpful?45Hub
- September 5th, 2021Average rating1out of 5 stars1.0No clue I needed an appRed521 |Bought the new lego roller coaster set and thought it would be cool to build and show off to my nieces. Saw that there were parts printed on the box to buy separately to motorize thr build and thought it would be great. Got the hub with from lego. No instructions are included on how to set up or make it run. Plenty on user compliance and safety codes but no actual information on how to use the hub or motor.. Saw something online through a search engine about bluetooth connection and gave it a try. Can't connect without an app. Doesn't tell you what app or where to find it. Scoured the lego website for twenty minutes to find out you need a lego boost app. But the boost app is a game not the actual app you need. You need lego powered up or some other garbage. IF YOU ADVERTIZE ON THE BOX YOU CAN YOU USE THESE PARTS YOU NEED TO MAKE THEM PLUG AND PLAY OR INCLUDE ACTUAL INSTRUCTIONS ON HOW TO SET UP.Play Experience1.0Value for Money1.0Was this helpful?15Hub
- October 18th, 2020Average rating1out of 5 stars1.0Extremely DisappointedEJ86 |Purchased for: SelfHow can you charge $50 for this and then not even have a manual for it? The explanation of "experiment with it" is pretty weak. There are probably 100 options to sort through.This is one of the worst lego products put on the market.Play Experience1.0Level of Difficulty5.0Value for Money1.0Build Time: 1 hrsBuilding Experience: Expert LEGO builderWas this helpful?15Hub
- July 6th, 2020Average rating1out of 5 stars1.0Simply Not Worth the PriceThomas99 |Purchased for: SelfI give lots of credit to LEGO for releasing a new line of power function systems, but for the price it simply is not worth it. I build custom LEGO trains/models and typically use the normal LEGO Power Functions for my builds. They work great! These however I have not been overly impressed with. For me to power my new LEGO 10277 it would cost in USD $112.97 which is outrageous. That is more than what the set costs to begin with. With the previous line-up of Power Functions I could power the set for USD $54.96. Even though there is not room to fit the IR receiver, I will be willing to make it work for the price difference. Overall, I love the ability to use the new line-up without a IR Receiver taking up space, but it simply is not worth the price. If LEGO retires the current line of "Power Functions," I more than likely will not be buying the new "Powered-Up" systems in the future and will turn to alternative options unless the price drops significantly.
