Sleek Modern Desk Lamp
on August 17, 2009
I am a careful buyer and I do read all reviews before I buy. While most other lamps had many negative sides such "too bright, too weak, not robust, too hot.. etc," this lamp reviews had all good stuffs.
My desk is silverish glass desk, and I chose this color to matches with the color of my desk.
I worried that this would be weak because it looked too thin but all knobs are strong to hold lamps.
Another thing I worried was the glare from glass. However, the problem is solved with its infinite angles you can form. This gives you like maximum adjustability. Since I have glass L desk, I just put it on corner space and let it rotate whenever I use different desk.
The coolest thing is that it makes you feel like you are under the sun. It does simulate like sunlight. No eyestrain from it.
I see many negative reviews of halogen lamp about hotness. This LED lamp doesn't get as hot as halogen that you can't touch. It does warm a bit but that's pretty much it.
Unlike fluorescent light, no flickering in the beginning.
As for life of the light , I don't know but the product promises 40K hours. I heard this also saves a lot of energy. Good for our environment as well.
The only downside is it is pricey but definitely money worth.
Anyway, I love its sleek and ergonomic design, robustly built and so far my eyes don't get tired like before. I recommend this to all and don't forget your eyes are important.
Edit 7/28/2011: It is still great lamp. For two years I studied under it constantly every night and it is running perfectly. If you have Macbook Pro or Apple unibody aluminum computers, the color also perfectly matches.
