The lamp has a lot of reach and flexibility, can be easily clamped to the end of a table. The tension in the springs is good and each joint can be tightened further to lock motion. The electrical components like the switch and wire seem to be of a good quality and should last.
There is no handle to move the head of the lamp when the lamp is on. When it is on, the head gets really hot because of the bulb, and moving it to a new position becomes difficult because of the temperature of the head. The work around is the use the black plastic baffle to move the head, but this is inconvenient.
Overall a it is a good deal especially compared to other similar products that are priced much higher.
I don't reorient the lamp, so I don't expect any failure of the moving parts, and the lamp is sturdy enough to maintain its position indefinitely, or so it seems. If you need to readjust the lamp often, you might want to skip this lamp, unless you don't mind applying a quick fix. The fulcrum of the lamp is at the post that sits in clamp. The post is simply a flat sheet of metal that has been crimped into a cylinder shape. This is obviously the weak point in the lamp. If you reinforce the post with a 2" section of 3/8" or 1/3" dowel, I don't think you'll have any issues moving this lamp often everyday. But if you keep the clamps at each joint firmly tightened, you might want to loosen them a wee bit before adjusting. The plastic components of the lamp either don't bear any significant strain or are sturdy enough for the job (i.e. the clamp).
As for the lamp shade getting hot, I splurged and went with 27W ALZO full spectrum 100W output CFLs at around $28 for 4. They fit perfectly in the lamp, I get slightly softer more saturated colors than typical fluorescent lighting, and the lamp shade never gets hot.
1) The head would never stay in place. Gradually drooped no matter how configured. The base also could not support the arm if it were extended, causing another few inches of sag. I didn't expect it to defy the laws of physics, but it's supposed to be extendable.
2) Hard to attach to a desk. It's a paradox. Not tight enough, eventually works its way off. Too tight, the vice warps and pops off. While the frame of the arm is solid, the base has too many plastic bits...
3) The internal frame around the light bulb is plastic, and this cracked apart from the shade/black mounting after approx. 1 year. It was too much a hassle to fix it in the middle of a home move, so the nice sturdy arm and springs went into the recycling.
First of all, like many other reveiwers said, the plastic on the mounting hardware cracked. Unlike other reveiwers, this happened to me while setting up the lamp, after only about three minutes of being out of the box. I wasn't being rough with the lamp by any means, I was simply attempting to mount it with the vauge instructions that the lamp came with.
Second of all, the lamp is too heavy for the mounting hardware. As a result, the hardware will move and have stress on it, causing it to probably crack further (I wouldn't know because I'm not keeping this peice of poop long enough to find out). Also, this makes the lamp droop. I tried tightening and loosening several of the joints on the lamp, but to no avail. It simply will not hold its own weight.
Third, the description said it could mount on either vertical or horizontal surfaces. I live in a dorm and I can't mount this horizontally onto my desk, so I was relying on the fact that it could mount vertically. Technically, it can, but doing so makes the lamp essentially useless. It doesn't possess the range of motion needed to make it actually useful. Instead, it either sits right next to my head or right in front of my laptop screen. Not to mention that the vertical mounting puts extra pressure on the mounting hardware, and makes the lamp droop considerably.
Fourth, the range of motion on this lamp is terrible. I bought it expecting it to swivel and turn any which way I needed it to. This was an important expectation, considering how impossibly huge this lamp is. Instead, it either extends a little or bends in a little, and it can rotate in a way that's not helpful at all.
Fifth, the lampshape/lightbulb screw thing is very off center.
Sixth, the cord is very short for such a long lamp.
In general, this is an abysmal exucse for a lamp. Buy it only if you think returning things is fun.
