I bought this lamp to replace the exact same one that I bought about a year ago then broke while painting last month. I was thrilled to find it again, however the original model from the same company/manufacturer was of much higher quality. This lamp's quality is poor even for the low price and was a disappointment. An earlier review spoke about the cord twisting while assembling and I experienced the same problem with it. Not only was the cord a problem but the entire assembly was a hassle. My original lamp had a smooth polished finish while this one's shade is rough to the touch and cheap looking. The base on my original was heavier than the base on this lamp, and while it seems balanced I would be careful about bumping it. On a positive note, it does have a step up switch for the light so that you can choose whether you want the full 75 watts or less light. How I wish I had my original one! I wouldn't order this one again.
