Decent, but funky controls have poor usability.
on July 12, 2013
I love that the lamp has three different light frequency settings, along with various stages of brightness. This makes it quite adaptable to varying daylight, cloudy days, night, etc. The swivel base is simple plastic - and not very smooth to turn. But those darn controls. It shouldn't take a ton of concentration to turn on the lamp, or adjust the brightness... heck, it should take the bare minimum! But the touch controls on this thing aren't very sensitive. It's like an old microwave where you have to keep pressing "3" to get it to register... same thing here. Thankfully, it seems to remember the last setting - so there are days where this isn't an issue. Still - Conoco really cheaped-out on this aspect.
