Very aesthetic lamp with a few drawbacks...,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Received the lamp and it was very easy to setup. I definitely enjoy the aesthetic that this lamp creates on my desk, its design is very modern and minimalist and its color has a certain retro feel.
It does have a few drawbacks, most of which have been mentioned by a few others before me. First, it is somewhat difficult to finely adjust it, one spends a good deal of time trying to overadjust it so that it ends up in the right spot, something I think Koncept could probably fix fairly easily. Secondly, the adjustment switches are uncomfortably far away from the light source, I routinely have to use a pencil or other long object to change its brightness if I do not want to get up from my chair to do so. Thirdly, I purchased the "warm" version of the lamp, which for my taste the color temperature is surprisingly high (think a temperature that is inbetween a bright white and a warm white CFL bulb). Lastly, even at the brightest setting the lamp just doesn't seem that bright, if your work is not directly beneath the lamp it will not be significantly lit.
My last semi-negative comment is that it is surprisingly large, really pay attention to the dimensions of the product if you are considering ordering this.
All in all, I am happy with the lamp; it looks great and it is functional. My complaints are really kind of quibbles. I think that if this lamp had cost me $30 at the local office boxstore I probably would not have these complaints at all. But, when spending greater than $150 for a desk lamp we should be completely satisfied with it. And, Koncept, if you are reading this I hope that you just tweak these few issues, and your already good product could be great.
