I needed a good lamp for reading, sewing, and other things. The lamps I have simply aren't bright enough in the evenings. I had looked a long time, and all these utility type lamps were over $100 elsewhere. The decorative ones did not cast enough light. So I thought I'd take a chance. It's really perfect! Extremely bright--so much so that I sometimes have to tilt the lamp away a bit. The bendy part is super versatile. I like that it's unobtrusive in its style so I can stick it anywhere I need it. The white one is truly off-white with a soft, matte finish, so it is not a glaring white. And the height seems to fit every application I can think of. Highly recommend. I've only had it a couple months, so I can't really attest to its longevity.
I am a knitter and need good lighting when I am knitting. I find that the light from this lamp is exceptionally bright and good to work under. If you are looking for ambient light, this is not the light for you. However, if you are a crafter of any kind, then I would recommend this lamp.
The sunlight floor lamp is overall terrific. Having some vision problems, I requre bright, focused light--this lamp provides it all. It was delivered post-haste and the assembly required only a few minutes. The flexible "neck" is wonderful for directing light exactly where I need it. It has a heavy base for stability on carpet or tile floors. The styling and color choices are appropriate for most home decors. I have been moving it room-to-room until I purchase at least one more. Let there be light.. If you want to see clearly now, do treat yourself to this versatile lamp.
Purchase one of these and the barrel was scratched and starting to rust. I returned it and got a replacement. After a week it began to flash really bright and then dim and soon stopped working. Two units that are unsatisfactory and I'll just look elsewhere
I have read some of the other reviews and do agree that there is a weakness when you screw the poles into the base but as along as you are careful it's ok. Don't pick it up by the pole either...slide it or pick it up from the bottom. The light is great and works for my crafting.
Every time I turn this light on, I'm reminded of a doctor's office. Had I read the reviews, I would not have purchased the halogen lamp BUT that being said, it's bright and works EXACTLY as the description. It's also not as high/ tall as I hoped but again, read read read then buy.
