As we age, our eyes naturally lose some of their ability to focus close-in. A teenager can focus on objects as close as 3-inches but by age 50 that distance can increase to 18-inches - Very frustrating when it limits your work or hobby. This premium-grade lamp is a simple and effective solution for seeing almost anything bigger, better and brighter. 38-inch triple-joint arm has unique internal cantilever system (not external springs like lesser lamps) that lets you adjust without loosening/tightening knobs - perfectly balanced to hold position (can be locked in position if necessary). Heavy-duty die-cast aluminum clamp with no-mark pad, nickel-plated steel screw fits surfaces to 2-1/2-inches thick; easy to move and remove and takes up just 2-inches of desk space. Extra-large 7-inch diameter glass lens with 5-diopter (2.25X) magnification lets you see fine detail clearly but still has a practical focal range (distance of text or object from lens) of up to 9-inches. 84 individual super-bright SMD LED illuminate with pure white light without the heat build-up of incandescent or halogen and without the flicker of fluorescent. Consumes less than 12-watts power with estimated life of 100,000 hours. About 1000 lumens. Conveniently placed power switch on lamp head, flip-up dust cover protects lens and keeps it clean. Overall length 48-inches, weight 11 lbs; 72-inches. 18AWG UL-listed power cord.
Top Customer Reviews
1). The 7" magnifier is too distorted beyond a 4" center circle to be useful. You might as well get the older cheaper 5" fluorescent version, at least the magnifier is undistorted.
2). The 7" magnifier is too heavy for the neck joint. You must loosen and re-tighten the knob every time you want to readjust angle of the magnifier or it just falls/droops down under its own weight. The old 5" magnifier lamp was half the weight and you could readjust the magnifier without having to re-tighten the knob.
3). The LED light has a plastic cover which reflects some of the LED light straight out the side of the lamp so that if you are sitting eye-level with the lamp, you have some of the light shining straight into your eyes. Very annoying if you are trying to use it as a desk lamp. You might be able to remove the clear plastic cover, but I dont know if everything will fall out if you attempt this.
4). The internal spring mechanism rubs on the inside of the metal arms. Lets just say that it is quite evident that this mechanism is not lubricated. I recommend sticking with the tried-and-true (not to mention serviceable and quiet) external spring arms.
5). The LEDs are a little brighter overall than the standard 22w magnifier lamp, but the light is quite a bit more spread out than the old fluorescent version. The light is slightly cooler and has a lower CRI by comparison.
6). The head has an additional axis of rotation perpendicular to the lens that allows you to "twist" the magnifier. Not really sure what the reasoning was behind this, as the lens is round, so I dont see what difference it makes which way you look into it, but it allows the head to fall over when you try to angle the magnifier at the same time (the center of weight of the head is now off-axis horizontally), thus requiring you to further tighten down on the knob.
In summary: Looks like a good idea at first, but another example of a product which was obviously never used by the designer. Along with cars and washing machines, I'm adding the magnifier desk lamp to my list of products which dont see an increase in reliability/usefulness with price...
It is all of the above. BUT. It has great magnification, a fairly wide field of view, I can even wear more magnification and use it as well for some projects. (trust me fine sliver removal needs all the help you can get in illumination and magnification).
It has been up to the task for spouse's IC hobby solder work, reading chip numbers on IC chips and things of that sort. It also works as a good task light as he is working on other things nearby on the bench.
It is a bit pricey but compared to buzzy and often flickery fluorescents that are also prone to being some weird off color shade... this is well worth it. I consider it to be right with some very expensive shop/manufacturing line/equipment I have worked with in the past. After some months of ownership and making sure it was properly installed so no tippy issues; it has been very good. Wherever my spouse goes FINGERPRINTS HAPPEN so. The lens cleans well with a microfiber cloth.
Go the extra $$$ for the LED's and you will be much happier AND you will appreciate the K-value of the light this puts out, it is a lot closer to truecolor than the fluorescent versions. This one rates 'worth eating macNcheese box dinners for a few weeks' to afford.
After literally 1000s of times of re-positioning the lamp, the clamp that holds the light to the swivel base broke. I sent an email to the manufacturer to see if I could get a replacement part so I wouldn’t have to buy a complete new lamp. I got an email from GS Tools confirming my address and saying they would ship a replacement part to me. From the time I sent the email to the manufacturer to the time I had the part was only 5 days, truly outstanding service!
Because of the service I received, I recommend that you purchase from GS Tools to support the kind of service that is often advertised but seldom delivered.
CONS: The lens is glass and the unit is heavy. You need to be careful of the lens because the ring that holds it in can come undone. The ring is on top so the lens will not fall out in normal use but be careful when you are setting it up.
