Nice, but lacking brightness for my close-up work
on January 9, 2007
After reading the reviews and comparisons on the manufacturers web site, I thought I had found the perfect lamp to spend my many tedious hours examining fingerprints with.
Needless to say, I was quite disappointed to find that this lamp lacked the brightness that I had thought it would have. Even though this lamp has a two-way switch that enables one to change between a high & low lamp output... I found that I had to have the lamp closer to my work than I wanted in order to achieve the brightness that I required.
I also found the base to be somewhat "tippy" when the light portion of the lamp was not adjusted parallel the base.
In fairness to the manufacturer, this lamp did cast an even light that was comfortable to to read under for extended periods of time.
Would I buy this lamp again... probably not, especially at the retail prices they are selling for.
