Cool, Professional, High Quality Lamp!
on March 15, 2014
As a grad student working late nights on my desktop at home, this lamp is exactly what I needed. It has four different lighting modes (reading, study, relaxation, bedtime), each with 5 levels of brightness, and a timer shutoff function (30 and 60 min), all controlled using the simple touch-sensor "buttons" at the base. It boasts at least 40,000 hours of life with a 1 year warranty. The lamp is also quite flexible with multiple points of pivot/rotation. At the base, the arm bends down/forward 90 degrees and rotates side-to-side 65 degrees in each direction. At the top, the head bends up 50 degrees, down 90 degrees, and even rotates side-to-side 45 degrees in each direction (viewing the lamp from the side as in the stock photo, the head tilts so that the light shines towards or away from you). It also has a USB charging port which I use to charge my cell phone.
I did a lot of research before purchasing this lamp and found something interesting. The Lightblade 1500S by Lumiy is actually a rebranding of the DL-65TH made by a Korean company called Diasonic. Furthermore, the more popular Satechi Smart LED is almost identical to the previous Lightblade 1500 (without the 'S') model, which doesn't have the rotating head. So if you were thinking of purchasing the Satechi, you should definitely get this Lightblade 1500S instead since it is an upgraded version at essentially the same price (at the time of this review).
All in all, I was seriously considering a variety of similar but cheaper options on Amazon, but ultimately the Lightblade 1500S seemed to have the highest quality with the best features. I'm definitely glad I shelled out a bit more for this awesome lamp!
