I love this lamp, yeah the clamp is worthless but you don't have to use it. The base has four screw holes in it so you can permanently attach it to the desk if you want. I have a cheap Ikea computer desk and screwed it to the top shelf. I can move it anywhere I want with the long arm and get plenty of light. It even came with a 23w CFL bulb which is the brightest I've ever owned. It gives off as much as a 100w incandescent bulb without the heat. I had an old one of these lamps with plastic parts which kept breaking off and I'd have to improvise parts to keep it working. This lamp comes with metal parts that will not be breaking anytime soon.
So bottom line, if you don't mind screwing the lamp to the desk top this is a great lamp for the money. If that is not an option for you don't buy it, the clamp will not suffice in holding it up.
February 24, 2013.... still love this lamp. Using the same bulb and looks and works like it is right out of the box. I use it 10 hours a day six days a week and it is great!
