two defective lights in a row - third order even had issues
on February 22, 2013
I've owned about six of these lights for my two desks, and they typically last about 2 years before something fails. Assume that the light will have to be replaced in 2 years.
I have now placed two consecutive orders for this light, and both arrived in defective condition and had to be returned. I already own three of them, and so I know how they work and how they are assembled, but something has gone wrong with this supplier.
The first light was missing the plastic knob that is used to turn the light on and off.
The second order had the plastic knob, but now was missing the two indentations on the light assembly that are necessary to attach the hood to the assembly.
The third order arrived, yes, I gave them three tries, and it had
1) a plastic knob on the top that looked used
2) a small dent in the hood
3) a chip in the white paint on the inside of the hood
4) and the lamp steel pole that goes into the base plastic mount was loose as if the mount didn't match the lamp.
When I looked at the packaging, it looked like it might have been a return.
Save yourself some time and avoid this product and merchant.
After two years of daily use, the on-off switch for this light failed.
