Nice looking lamp. Purchased Black version. On/Off switch broke after 4 uses!
on November 26, 2012
The F48K28 Natural Daylight Desk Lamp is an attractive Ott Lite lamp. I have two previously purchased OttLites; a tall floor model and a table top model. This small table top model is attractive and doesn't occupy a lot of space, which is why I bought it. The lamp curves pretty low to the table and is not flexible. I use the other Ott lamps for my artwork; this lamp gives light too close to my working surface.
After using the lamp 3 or 4 times, the On/Off switch, which is a "press-in" button on the lower lamp body, became 'locked in' and no longer usable. I could no longer operate the lamp! I had to take the lamp apart to see the way the On/Off switch operated. It works on a simple button, but the nesting for the mechanism is through a metal nut that is poorly anchored and will probably come loose in many cases. I pulled the wiring & "press-in" button outside of the lamp and re-assembled the lamp with the On/Off switch outside. It works fine this way, but not all customers have my "MacGiver" ability. This is a problem the manufacturer should fix.
