I have paid way more for “happy lights” and this does everything they do for a much more affordable price. For the most part, i use this as a reading lamp, but it also makes me happy as i suffer from seasonal affective disorder in the winter. I read some other reviews that mentioned the size of the base. It is larger than the lamp at the top, but is probably only large enough to keep the lamp from falling over. The picture is misleading, so keep this in mind when purchasing it. If it looked like the pic, you would have trouble keeping it upright. The switch is on the top between the lamp and the flexible neck. I could not be happier with this purchase.
I build automobile and railroad models as a hobby. I have a circular fluorescent magnifying lamp, but at my age i needed some extra lighting to augment what i had. This excellent desk lamp has filled the bill with nice white ambient lighting. It is attractive, not too big, adjustable and doesn’t take up a lot of room on my work table. The base is heavy enough so the lamp is stable and doesn’t tip over. Simple assembly consists of just plugging the fluorescent tube into the lamp’s socket. Very happy with it and the price was right. Entire purchase transaction was perfect for me.
I had a verilux lamp for years on my desk. I thought i was satisfied with it and when it suddenly didn’t work any more even with a new bulb, i looked for another verilux lamp to replace it. But there was not one that was identical (apparently they aren’t making my particular style any more) so i searched for options on amazon. I got this one based on the price and the reviews i read of this lamp and others. Long story short, i love this lamp. I have glaucoma, so contrast and depth are issues for me. This lamp is so much brighter than the verilux lamp that it really makes a difference. It makes me happy every time i use it because it is so bright and cheerful. It makes things much easier to see – the light is very clear and bright, but not too bright – it does not cause a glare on my laptop display as some lights have in the past. I have a small space and the base of it is a little bigger than the verilux but it is worth it for the extra brightness.
This led light can do 3 level brightness.

I can’t speak for ‘bulb’ longevity yet, but i received what i expected and i’m happy. I wish that the cord could be directed in other directions because i like to face it towards our white wall and/or ceiling to give a more diffused light and overall better room lighting. Otherwise, it’s directional like a spot light, which is neither good nor bad but makes for sharper shadows. If you like what you see, want to save energy, and want this type of lamp, i recommend this model. Update: almost 1 1/2 years later, i still like this lamp. The bulb is going strong, and i highly recommend leaving the light on. It’s not for quick “on/off again” use. Doing that decreases bulb longevity. I leave it on for at least 4hrs.
I bought this lamp for use in my temporary outside office (on a picnic table, no less). The tiki-lights surrounding the covered patio put off good light for hanging out, but not for doing any work after dark. If you’re wondering, we are staying with inlaws after returning from overseas. There is no place in the house where i can set up and leave out my computer and work stuff, so i always commandeer the back patio. This lamp does exactly what it says it does. I only wish it spread a slightly larger circle of light. I don’t need lighting for my monitor, but it does illuminate my keyboard beautifully. Great but not perfect, hence the 4 stars instead of 5. What i have done to light up a greater area is to set the lamp on a table behind me and adjust the arm so it’s pointing straight up. I then aim the light at the wall behind me, and it bounces off nicely, giving the whole patio (and part of the yard) a nice golden glow (the wall is yellow, so the normally white light is transformed). All in all, it works for me. I suffer from seasonal affective disorder (sad), so i need added light in the colder months. If you’re like me, this lamp is definitely for you.
These things are very flexible and throw out a lot of nice light. I’ve owned one for several years and it’s been an excellent, reliable light source next to my computer (the original bulb is still working). This week i again bought the same model for my nightstand (chosen after reading reviews on other similarly sized, newer model desk lamps). I ruled out led lamps since there were too many complaints about not enough lumens and faulty “touch” features. I also read the complaints about the failure rate on this lamp, but bought it anyway because i’m so happy with the one i’ve long owned. I got it today, put in the bulb, plugged it in. It works, doesn’t buzz, so it must not have been assembled at the end of a long workday. I also ordered an extra bulb since eventually one of them will surely burn out.
I wouldn’t know what to do without this special sunlight lamp. It makes all the difference in the world softly illuminating my reading. Would be good for that and any other use that would benefit from brilliant clear light. This is my second sunlight lamp, and when i had to order a replacement lamp after years of use, i was lost without it until my new one arrived.Treat yourself to this special lighting, you will see and appreciate the difference.
I found myself in a dreary, dark office after a recent relocation. Depressing, sure, but it also started causing headaches after staring at computer screens in mild darkness for 9 hours a day. I have it pointing, at an angle, at my two monitors. It provides a very bright, but rather natural, light that i can easily work to without distorting my monitors’ colors or resolution (note- my monitors have matte screens- obviously you’d want to be careful if you had glossy ones, as the glare would be a problem). I often don’t even realize this is on due to the natural quality of light, but the second it’s turned off, you can see the differencethe articulating head works just fine at any angles- mine’s rather contorted and i don’t have any issues with it staying in place.
Got it to help my circadian rhythm and mood as the fluorescent lights make my desk feel so dark in the morning. Also got a lucky bamboo to help brighten the place up and it seems to be doing ok so far with the light.
It lights my desk area well. But it’s not a pleasant light; it seems very harsh and glaring. The design is cool and the flexible neck is handy. My biggest criticism is the placement of the on/off switch. It is on the bottom of the bulb casing. Which means you have to reach under and search for it, which is especially awkward in a dark room. I’m not sure about the “sunlight” part. I’ll probably use it in my garage. , where i’m not so particular.
My ottlite quit on me and rather than buy another i was looking for a similar lamp. I am so glad this worked out for me. I do a lot of beading and small work and i need a good localized light on my projects. Yep, this fit the bill perfectly. . And yes the light bulb is included even though the description doesn’t say that specifically.
I live in a really rare apartment. I actually have an overhead light in my living roomit’s fine for television viewing and normal routine, but not for reading. I purchased this neat little lamp from amazon, whom i tend to support on almost a daily basis, and have it on my table in front of my double windows. Peruse the schwan’s catalogue there. Anything that involves using my eyes i can do there and this little beauty helps me. The only thing better than this little lamp is the sun when i sit on my front porch and read. You absolutely can’t go wrong with this lamp.
I work in a very dark office environment, and i have been denied the ability to turn on the lights. So i decided to get myself a lamp to help. A normal office according to my research should have between 200-500 lux (light rating), and my office was 38. This lamp brings me up to 81. Still dark, but much better.
I bought this “sunlight lamp” for the same reason many do – to help fight seasonal depression. Unfortunately, the instruction booklet includes a statement that this lamp is “not intended for irradiation of humans or plants. “in other words, it’s just a really bright fluorescent lamp. It does not give off the type of light that will ptoduce vitamin d or help your plants thrive. The light that it does emit is very bright white. The lamp is big, solid, sturdy, includes a bulb, and comes well packaged and already assembled. I like the lamp (i bought antique brass) but i don’t like the misleading marketing. It is not a sunlight lamp from what i’ve read.
(edited because a) the lamp stopped working and b) i found out the lamp i was replacing was from a different company). The lamp was really nice and i liked the light. But – i bought it on april 29 2014. I first thought it was the light bulb, so i bought a replacement light bulb. But it is still not working. The previous lamp that i had lasted for years, i mistakenly believed it was the same company. But now that this one stopped working and searched through my orders i noticed that the previous one was from bell and howell. That one lasted for years until my father broke it. Now, it’s very possible that i got ‘lucky’ with the previous one and unlucky with this one – but the fact is: less than a year the lamp is not working and i have two bulbs. I’ll try to buy a lamp of a different company that matches the same bulb size.
This lamp is identical to home structure, fourteen inch tall, fluorescent desk lamp (black) by lightaccents, which sells as of this date for $22. forty five listed here on amazon and ships free with amazon key. I own both equally and actually would rate this lamp at 4. 5 stars but need to bring the value differential to probable buyer’s focus. It definitely is brilliant adequate and i have it on a desk hutch and it lights up the total desktop region nicely.
Does what it says on the tin. It is larger than you’d believe, but fits perfectly on a desk.
I purchased this mild for my boyfriend since his home lacks a lamp that has a deal with. The gentle bulb illuminated his place way too yellow and it also harm his eyes when he seemed in that direction, so i required to get him a light-weight that didn’t hurt his eyes, previous extended, and created a pure lights. The products came in a week and was in great affliction. I have researched on lamps and lights and as a lot of of us might know, lighting can really have an affect on how a person can truly feel. Even alarm clocks boost a gradual light transform so that a particular person can wake up normally experience much more refreshed. I was hoping that his lamp would attain that expectation centered on the reviews on amazon. When i turned on the light-weight for the duration of the early morning, i could not notify if the gentle was from outdoors the window or from the light. It was so all-natural that it didn’t have that neon white appear and it wasn’t brilliant that damage the eyes. We waited until night time time yet again to try out it. When lit up for the duration of the night, the lamp produced the home glimpse like it was morning.
So much, it’s five star (just bought it). Larger than i predicted, but matches on my personal computer desk. Arrived with the bulb currently mounted all i experienced to do was unwrap the lamp (and it was extremely perfectly wrapped–a lot of plastic and styrofoam to get rid of) and plug it in. It appears to be very strong i’m hoping it lasts a extended time.
I have extended suspected that i endured from seasonal have an impact on condition and many people prompt i try a total-spectrum lamp. On the other hand, i was reluctant to spend the pretty substantial rate that most price tag. Then i located this one particular for a great value and was thrilled, but still cautious for the reason that the evaluations focused on its deserves as a supply of mild for performing duties somewhat than its use to beat unhappy. On the other hand, i purchased it, and have been thrilled with the results. It instantly and decisively boosts my mood. I are not able to envision a superior outcome to selling price ratio.
I am up in several years and experience a eyesight difficulty known as macular degeneration. None of the regular lights in our home, up to and such as 150-watt bulbs are brilliant more than enough for typical studying capabilities. I use this lamp on my enterprise business office desk to light the papers i am making use of with my computer perform. Great output, assists significantly with my vision trouble.
