Other than the long stick protruding from the secondary lamp, this is a nice looking torch. Unfortunately it suffers from two fatal flaws. First, the light hums/buzzes. Not quite obnoxiously, but in a silent room it's definitely noticeable (and annoying). Second, and more importantly, you need some really dexterous feet to use the floor dimmer. Had that part been better engineered, I would have considered this a 4-5 star lamp.
