I am pleased with this nicely designed lamp. It's not quite as tall as the description implies unless you bend the lamp up straight, but it's a fine reading lamp with nice light and it was a snap to put together. The plastic parts are lightweight but seem sturdy enough. I like the look of the lamp and am overall pleased. I looked at many cheap lamps. so I know what you can get for the money and think this is better than most I saw. I appreciate that the base is heavy enough to support the lamp. The replacement bulb will cost about 1/4 the original cost of the lamp, which was not something I expected, so I hope it lasts a long time, but I won't know that until later.

Purchased two for 91 year old grandma living in dim lighted retirement community. Placed one beside recliner, and one next to writing table. Gave great light to read newspapers and do paperwork. Be sure to verify height you would like your lamp to be ...this lamp is not tall, but measurements given are accurate!
i think it is a quality product if a daylight spectrum is really what you want. maybe i should have known this but "day light" is really not always what works. at night i find the lamp too subtle and with a very small scope so it is of very limited use. i have used it as light while working on my watercolor paintings and it was not any better than my 100 watt incandescent light. i love the 27 watt usage, that is a plus but its illumination does not substitute for the high wattage bulb.

Love the lamp, Had one of another brand similar to this but it only lasted about a year. Hope this one fares better. Will update review if it does not! I like the fact that there are two intensities and that it is a natural light. I also like being able to adjust the lamp head to focus in different directions.
This lamp is perfect to have beside my sofa for reading time! Not too tall, the nect adjusts nicely and the lights are perfect! Very sturdy and great quality for the price. I highly recommend this lamp for reading.

A great floor lamp that gives great, clear light. And the style is one that easily integrates in to the contemporary style of my home. I purchased in the Graphite color, The grey/black color blends well with the silver grate over the light. This is my third Verilux lamp and each has been a great addition to my home and support for eye health.
My wife needed a bright lamp with which to read and do embroidery, so I looked around and did some comparison, and finally decided on this. Although not an LED lamp, it's _very_ bright and does the job nicely for someone seated in a chair or at a table. place the lamp to the side or behind you with the lamp turned to the subject of your attention. I'm impressed with the easily used and attractive switch on the neck, next to the lamp. It's easy to find and not obtrusive at all when you are searching for it by feel only. We chose the black lamp, and it seems to blend in with our decor very well. I am a bit annoyed that the lamp's height is not adjustable, but if you buy it with that understanding as I did, and with the knowledge that the neck is flexible, you will be happy with the purchase. I haven't priced the lamp element itself, but expect to get a spare one. I suspect this is the bulk of the cost, and am a bit wary of how long it will be manufactured, given the climate of "LED-only" currently being thrust upon us.
