This rugged little lamp is as an excellent design. The frame is sturdy and made of superior grade plastic and my lamp has gone through thousands of openings and closings in the past and has shown no appreciable wear. I've also dropped it down a height of ten feet by accident, and while I wouldn't recommend repeating that incident the unit came through without a scratch. The lamp is incredibly versatile beyond its construction, the light is strong and the light the bulb produces mimics daylight. This makes it ideal for small craft and repair jobs, and also makes it an excellent source of supplementary light for indoor plants.
The only reason I didn't rate this product 4 stars instead of a five star rating is that the cord of the light is about 4 feet. which is rather short for a work/craft light, and carrying around is tiresome. The cord can also become a problem when using it as a work lite as the cord is not detachable and can be a hazard. In my case stumbling on the cord was what caused the ten foot drop. If a relatively short non-detachable power cord isn't a factor, then I can't recommend this light enough. I may even buy another in the near future myself.

This task lite is durable and works extremely well. As a designer I value "true lighting" and this light does the trick perfectly. I've purchased several of these over the years and they are truly terrific.

I edit and print my own photos and this light is a big help in analyzing the color.

One of the best lights I've ever had. Owned for over 10 years and only had to replace bulb once. When bulb went out I called Ott-lite customer service and they got me a replacement ASAP. I think Ott-Lite has the best customer service department, they are so knowledgeable, professional and just wonderful to deal with. Thanks Ott-lite.

Buyer Beware of possible defects:
This unit arrived at my home in a box that was not damaged and there was no visible damage to the exterior of the unit. I was initially very impressed with this heavy metal lamp...until I opened it......When I opened the light, small piece of plastic began to fall out. While the light itself is made of very sturdy metal and is quite heavy and well made, the socket the bulb fits into is made from VERY brittle and cheap plastic that appears to have literally sheared away or fallen apart. I would have expected a ceramic socket on something this nice or at the very least a heavy plastic socket.
This important part is no where near the quality of the rest of the lamp.

The issue here is not just the lamp but an expensive return to seller. After I ship this thing back, I'll find out if they charge me for shipping and let you know how much it costs me to end up with NO lamp!! From what I read of this company's return policy, they subtract the initial shipping from your refund if you send it back. That would mean I'd have to pay shipping both ways and end up with no product.

I did a little research and have noticed these lamps are suddenly being offered at 50% off by a local vendor listed on the Ott-lite website. Recent negative reviews on the web are complaining about cheap parts on a variety of these lamps and that may be the reason. Folks who bought this light early on may have a very different experience than those of us who are buying it now. Looks like a good company overcome by greed or perhaps sold to a third rate corporation. I would recommend buying this lamp locally (if at all) and carefully inspecting the light socket at the store for cracks of any kind.

I recently purchased our second Ott-lite Truecolor Portable Lamp after the bulb burned out in our first one. So along with a new replacement bulb, I ordered another lamp. We use it as a reading lamp, sewing lamp, and my husband uses it to work on various small "fix-it" projects etc. We use it so much that we needed another one! Great product!

I do alot of closeup art/craft work. The Ott-Lite is great for helping me work comfortably on detailed pieces and finishing work. Now that I have it, I can't do without it. When I get a magnifier to go with it, it will be a 5 star product.
