    I thought it would help with Seasonal Depression, but it doesn't. Still a good lamp, and I use it daily.

    Verified Purchase

    Bought this for my son's desk and he couldn't be happier. He is an accountant and was getting too many headaches. I thought it was the lighting on his desk. After reading the reviews I decided on the Verilux. Great choice.

    Verified Purchase

    Incredibly bright lamp that is outstanding for reading and writing. As a graduate student who spends inordinate amounts of time doing both things, I could not be happier. Build quality is superb; adjustable neck is stable without rebound after you set it; Light quality is intense without any glare, eye strain or flickering. Text just seems to really POP out of pages. As an FYI for those without a lot of desktop space, the base of the lamp is rather large compared to most lamps though; its outline is roughly the size of one of those large oval TV Dinners. It's not an issue for me as I have a large desk. I could not be happier. I highly recommend this Lamp to all readers, and cannot express my joy with Overstock's prices. I saw the same lamp for twice the price at some other places.

  • Great Desk Lamp
    Verified Purchase

    I purchased this lamp for use at work because the overhead lighting in my office is not bright enough, and especially during the winter when it gets dark outside before I typically leave for the day, it is often too dim to effectively get work done in the later hours of the day without eyestrain and headaches. What attracted me to this lamp in particular was the natural spectrum lighting aspect, as I also suffer from moderate seasonal depression. I would say that this lamp offers both effective task lighting on my desk, and also helps me keep my energy level up as the day wears on. Before I got this lamp, I would get a tension headache and very tired most afternoons since the end of summer. Now I very rarely get the headaches, and I often no longer feel so tired as the day progresses. The lamp has two brightness settings, which is a really nice feature. When it is sunny outside my office window, I usually select the lower brightness, but on a cloudy day, or as it gets dark outside, I switch the brightness to full. It doesn't throw nearly as much heat as a halogen or even an incandescent desk lamp from what I can tell, either. The top of the lamp is only warm to the touch after being on for many hours instead of very hot like some previous standard lamps I've had! For the price, I believe this lamp may be a good alternative to some of the very expensive therapeutic lights that are used to treat seasonal depression (that is, for someone like me who does not suffer from a severe form). It is, at the very least, nice quality task lighting.

  • excellent for reading or doing artwork
    Verified Purchase

    My first verilux was the original natural spectrum desk lamp. I got in 2003 and used it in my studio in Mississippi, then moved to Tennessee and used it in my studio, then moved to Louisiana and I am still using it in my studio. Keep in mind after all of those moves and 12 years later....the same bulb with heavy use. These lights are amazing! Perfect for an artist or everyday reader. I highly recommend them. I now own the floor lamp and two desk lamps. Recently purchased a floor lamp and desk lamp for my Parents for Christmas. My sister in law also received a floor lamp for Christmas and loves to used it for her sewing room. Excellent Buy!

  • interesting lamp
    Verified Purchase

    bought this as a desk lamp for my 11 year old daughter's room. It is a little weird looking and took a moment to get used to. However, she loves it now and says the light is definitely easier on her eyes. We have the white one which is actually off-white/cream.

  • Useful only when sitting at the desk with a book
    Verified Purchase

    So the light cast from this is very bluish, which might be ok for reading but is not good just as a table lamp to light up part of a room. Also unless you put your book within inches of the lamp, it is useless, even on high power. So setting it on a table next to a couch to read is useless as is setting it on a bedside table to read by. So this is only and strictly a desk lamp: you must sit next to it with the book below the lamp for it to cast sufficient light to read by without eye strain. I have no use for a lamp that you have to sit so close to.

    "Why did you choose this product?"

    • A:

      I need a new lamp for my desk, to replace worthless one. As I need the natural spectrum light in the winter, this will be a welcome addition to the floor lamp I already own. No more moving the floor lamp from one room to another, depending on what I'm doing that morning! Note: The positive reviews were the deciding factor. I never buy a product that has been poorly reviewed or not reviewed at all.

    • A:

      I ordered this to replace a desk lamp that I use when overhead or natural light is not sufficient while using my laptop computer. I relied on the reviews after looking at other choices.
