Top Customer Reviews
If you're looking for a seriously cheap lamp and don't care what others around you think, get this... but don't expect it to light up anything except the sheet of paper right under it. I'm not exaggerating with that one.
The finishes are also varied, too. Base on sides is plastic. Top of base is brushed steel. Poles are car antennas. Top of head is grey plastic. Bottom part of head is reflective foil-ish material.
Avoid. Continue your search.
The construction is rather disappointing. At least there is a proper metal flip switch, which hopefully will last some years. However, the product is advertised as having a brushed steel finish. From this description, and without being able to clearly judge from the accompanying photographs, one would assume that that this finish is applied to the entire lamp. Wrong. Only the top surface of the base has the brushed steel finish. The base itself, the mounts for the telescoping arms, and the lamp head are instead constructed from ugly grey plastic, which gives the entire lamp a rather cheap and unaesthetic appearance.
The fact that the construction is half-plastic should have been made explicit in the product details. For this sort of cheap construction, the lamp should be no more than $20.
Once I discovered the lamp head flips over and acts like a torchiere lamp, this is the main position I use. It provides enough light in my work area without being too bright. Oddly enough, I rarely use this as an actual desk lamp. It's a great value and serves my purpose. If you're looking for a desk lamp to cast light downward, I'd recommend looking at different lamps before buying one to see how much light it emits.

It comes with a ridiculous power hogging wall wart that will run 24/7 even when the lamp is off; so much for any green benefit from the LED'S.
If offered at half the list price, it would be overpriced. Look elsewhere, as this is yet another excessively cheap product from China. And, when the LED's go, the lamp is landfill, no replacement. Sorry I bought it.
The LED's are recessed into the head, so I can shine the light on my keyboard, and yet it does not glare into my eyes, or on my monitor, and I can position the light on the side of my keyboard and monitor, so that the light does not obstruct my viewing of my monitor.
I liked what the other reviewer said ([...]), where he flipped the head pointing up. I am going to buy another one for the bedroom, and point the leds toward the ceiling.
The LED head can be positioned in almost any angle, so finding the perfect position to light your keyboard without shining glare on your monitor or in your eyes is relatively easy.
This light is just perfect for me, so I give it 5 stars, but I still see a few areas for improvements:
As reviewer OM says, the LED head itself is black plastic, and it would be nicer if the head was also brushed Stainless Steel, but I have no problem with the black.
I wish there was a High/Low switch.
I also wish the power supply brick was located in the base of the lamp instead of plugging into the wall.

Very disappointed. Does not serve my needs for a good desk lamp.
Again, this is a case where the item description does not accurately reflect the product.
A great looking and bright desk lamp. The price sounded too good to be true, it only lasted a 2 months before "just going OUT". No way to replace LED's or circuit board. Read morePublished on May 12, 2012 by Tulsa666

This lamp is not as good as a halogen desk lamp--it's just not that bright. Its ok for a darker room, or if your desk is in a corner, away from the main lighting. Read morePublished on November 30, 2011 by Tex
