Not bright enough for illustration
on May 10, 2014
I work as a comic book illustrator and this lamp seemed very appealing to me. I decided to purchase this lamp after reading all the great reviews about it. I did tons of research to find what I was hoping to be the best lamp I ever owned. However, I was very disappointed with this lamp, unfortunately.
The moment I switched the lamp on I could tell it was not going to be what I needed. The light is very dim and has an unpleasant blue tint. I'd be willing to live with the blue tint if the light was bright enough, but I have to use a second lamp at my desk to produce enough light to draw with, otherwise my eyes strain the entire time. I am returning the item and getting my money back.
I would have given this product one star but the goose neck is pretty nice and the fact that it can turn into a floor lamp AND desk lamp is nifty.
Maybe this lamp is good for crafting or sewing, but if you do regular illustration, I would strongly advise getting something else.
