I have had this lamp for about 3 months and I love it. I use it on the table next to my bed to read while my wife sleeps next to me. No more getting yelled at for waking her! The base is heavy enough to make it quite stable in all positions except "fully extended." The length of the gooseneck is such that it can easily reach my book from the night stand and the light is well focused so it lights primarily the book with minimal room light. Because it is an LED lamp, there is no heat generated as with the old high intensity reading lamps. The only possible improvement would be a control to vary the level of light rather than just off/on. Well constructed should provide years of service.

I've had this lamp for three months now. It's good at doing the job I want it for (reading in bed without keeping my wife awake), and on the whole, I'm happy with it.

Be aware that this is very much a "task light," not a room lamp. It provides very bright light in a small and highly-adjustable area, which makes it good for reading, or for illuminating a desktop; but it won't light up the room. (For me, that's a feature I want-- just be aware of it).

Also, be aware that (like a lot of LEDs) it's a very "cool" light-- very white, almost bluish. Some people may like that; personally, I'd prefer something a bit warmer.

Pros:
- Very intense light
- Stays cool
- Nice long neck that's highly adjustable, and is stiff enough
- Toggle switch on the base is easy to operate

However, the lamp has a few design issues that I don't like, so I can only give it four stars.

Cons:

- The base isn't really heavy enough. It doesn't tip over... but it moves around when I adjust the light up and down (which I do a lot-- bring it down when I want to read in bed, push it up out of the way when I'm not using it). This would be less of a problem if it were a desk lamp that mostly stayed in the same position. I wish the base were about three times as heavy. I solved the problem by getting a little C-clamp and clamping it down to the tabletop (the base is shaped nicely for that), but it seems silly that I should have to do that.

- Poor lens design. There's a clear plastic lens that covers the LEDs. Instead of being recessed flush in the metal lamp head, it protrudes from the surface, and a lot of light leaks out through the side edges. This means that I get a lot of direct-from-the-lamp glare in my eyes when I'm trying to read (I want it to shine on the book, not in my eyes). It's eye-straining and highly annoying. I solved this by getting a couple of strips of black electrical tape (which is extremely opaque) and covering the sides of the lens... but I shouldn't have to do that.

- The cone of light coming out is too broad, so I have to adjust the light position carefully if I don't want glare in my eyes. A sharper-edged, more focused light distribution would be friendlier.

- The lamp is designed such that the light comes out at a right angle to the neck of the lamp. I've had other flexible-neck lamps that shone straight out from the end of the neck, and found that arrangement to be much more convenient in positioning the light where I want it.

This LED lamp is just want I was looking for. The gooseneck is flexible enough to position the way I want, but stiff enough to hold its position. It is long enough to put beside my 24" monitor and arch over it to illuminate the desk work area without glaring in my eyes or on the screen. It was delivered on time .. in perfect condition .. and so far I have had no problems with it. Highly recommended.

When you buy an LED Lamp it is hard to evaluate just how suitable it will be compared to the halogen or incandescent night table or regular lamp fixture you may be replacing. LEDs are oftentimes less bright or have a narrower beam. When we tried out this night table LED lamp it does have a somewhat narrower beam than the light fixture it replaced but the LED fixture is very bright and does cast out a beam that is superior to the lamp it replaced. The flexible lamp stem also allows you to configure the lamp in an infinite number of configurations, much more versatile compared to the old fixture. Also, our old fixture as typical of night table lamps oftentimes have bulbs that are less common and sometimes hard to find a replacement, whereas the LED not only uses a fraction of the wattage but the LEDs will probably never need replacement since their bulblife is so long compared to halogen and incandescent bulbs. Highly recommend this reading lamp for night table use. It would probably also be suitable as a desk lamp.

I've been using this as an auxiliary bedside lamp for about 6 months, and I love it. In fact, I just came back to the website, hoping to find the same exact lamp in a floor model, and that's when I decided to write a brief review. I LOVE the fact that it has a weighted base, so it doesn't tip over when you adjust the extended gooseneck. When I say "auxiliary"light, what I mean is: It's fairly bright on its own, but I must admit that I often use it in combination with another LED lamp because I prefer an extra bright light for reading. In hot weather, I also like the fact that it stays perfectly cool. I love to read, but when it's hot out, I don't like having a hot reading light burning down on me, so the coolness of the LED light is a big plus. You can touch it after it's been on for an hour or more, and it will still be cool. So that also indicates that it's using very little electricity.

We needed two lamps that could reach around a Murphy bed installation to serve as reading lights for guests. These work and look pretty interesting as well. We wouldn't buy them for our bed, but they are good for their placement in our home. Their use in our home required that the switches be available on the lamp base and these are.

Perfect for providing illumination next to my computer screen. Bright and focused light does not cause glare to the screen. Long goose neck allows extension of the light far beyond the base so the base is out of the way behind my computer screen. I like it very much!

good extension and solid base. But light is like a spotlight and, if using by a computer, will not cover much more than the keyboard.. if that. It has no hood so it gets in your eyes when raised to cover a bit more area.

This was a gift and he likes it well enough. The LED provides a great light source and more importantly, the long neck was perfect to sit behind a 27" monitor and still have enough play overhead to move it where it's needed.

Provides limited light but sufficient for the small desk area I use it for. A little expensive based on light output.
