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.
Had an older beige one that still works fine but wanted another color for living room. Great to use for reading-adjustable position for light. Got two-one for me and one for husband. Style is functional with the dark color helping them blend in.
There are two connections with threaded screws and the holes do not match up. A metal screw would help, but what would help the most is to have the holes matched. This was a hassle for me and finally I had to have help from another person. Between us, we never were able to force the holes to match up. We had to force the screw at an angle, with much difficulty. I have had one of these lamps for many years and I love them. The ballast died and I had to have a replacement. If I had know the hassle, I would have thought twice about this purchase. ***
I read in bed a lot, and I wanted a light that would ake it easier. It is very good for reading or any close work where direct light is an asset.
