Ledu LEDL283MB – 13W Fluorescent Computer Task Lamp : solid product, great for the price

Lamp provides the desk light as needed, but the arm is not as adjustable as i wished. The main drawback of this lamp. While you can clamp a base to your desk, the lamp too easily pulls out of the base, plus there is no clamp or attachment to keep it securely in the base.

I payed a little less than $50 for this light. I probably wouldn’t have bought it, if i didn’t know exactly what i was looking for. It is a little flimsy and, can be broken easily. However, for sitting on a desk, and not getting touched, it is good. I like the light itself, so no worries there. Overall, i am happy with it. One star off for lack of strength, and another star removed because i am not wowed by the light.

Can’t be beat for the price and long reach. This is the 3rd one of these lamps i bought. Two were from office depot a number of years ago for $29. 95 but they evidently no longer carry them. This was a replacement for the first one after the piece that fits into the holder broke off. Well for the price there is nothing else i can find that does what this does. The reach is outstanding and once you get used to the built in slop in the mount it’s easy to reposition in almost any angle you want. I bought one of those expensive ‘saicoo┬« 10w led eye protection multi-function desk lamp with super large light-emitting panels’ and although it makes very white light it just doesn’t have the reach and takes up too much desk space. Much more light that the new led types.

This item was purchased to replace the top part of a stand mounted unit, so i did not use the base. Unfortunately it did not last as long as the original. The plastic around one of the pivot screws cracked preventing the head from staying in place. I was able to repair it with a longer screw and a washer, but i’m not sure how long it will last.

Works well, great light for my desk and computer. It is nice that it has both a table top base and a clamp base.

LEDL283MB – Ledu 13W Fluorescent Computer Task Lamp : Great lamp; provides good light; holds adjustment very well. . Provided good light; easy adjustment and adjustment stays in place. I mounted it with the “jam” on top shelf of credenza over my desk. Set adjustment and forget it (unless you need the light somewhere else). I turn on/off with wall switch so cannot comment on switch on light body. I can highly recommend this light.

Not really meant to be played around with once its set up. Its nice but can be awkward if u are trying o angle it perfect so if u want something for more perfected movement (as in you are going to be moving it around allot) prob want to buy something else however i like it, the light is really good on the eyes doesn’t blind u.

For my home/office purposes, this was just what the dr. Makes for an excellent desktop task lamp. It’s adjustable as indicated in the description and photos. Gives the user the option of using the included desktop base or the included clamp base. The only surprising feature is that it is all plastic, and as such requires to be treated as such. Otherwise, pretty much perfect.

I ordered this lamp because it was very similar to the one i had for 7 years. My original light did break. Upon opening the box and setting up the lamp i found this is and exact replacement, same lamp i had for 7 years. I easily set it up to my last configuration and even replaced the bulb with my original lamp and it is great. I positioned it the same as my original and did not have to tighten any screws. This is a great lamp as long as you do not need to change the position on a constant basis. It is mostly plastic but not cheap. I recommend this lamp for anyone who needs to set it up once or twice to get the correct position.

Great application for the computer station.

Works well, great light for my desk and computer. It is nice that it has both a table top base and a clamp base.

I took it out of the box and plugged it in. With the adjustable arm i can shine light on my screen and still have light on my desk top. I choose not to mount it, but to use the base, which is heavy enough to balance the lamp so it is stable on my desk. It arrived on time and was well packaged. I will tell my friends about this lamp.

It works fine as a task lamp, but has some minor issue. The ledu lamp i got is working just fine. It’s bright, and the swing arm can adjust to any angle and positions i need. The issue is on the joint of the swing arm to the cramp base. The hole on the base is bigger than the pole on the arm, so the whole thing is loose and i have to hold the joint when adjusting the arm otherwise it will get lifted up.

Perfect light for small projects.

I would recommend this product because the overall price/quality is very good. With it comes a base or a clamp to hold it to the table. The clamp is very convenient but the base has a bit cheap material. I had a similar lamp before and it was quite noise, this is totally noise (something important when you want to study and want total silence). With the arm you can reach almost any place but you will have to place it in the right position.

Bought two of these because i wanted to have a spare. Within 6 weeks, i needed the spare. The post holding the lamp to the base just snapped off. I don’t know if i have any recourse of getting it replaced. Let’s see if the second one will not snap off.

Creats a great office atmosphere.

I’ve had two of these before. They last quite a while (years), but eventually reach their demise. I always order another and will continue to do so.

If you are an artist or work on projects requiring very directed lighting you can’t beat this lamp. I have used these lights in three locations in my house for at least 20 years. There absolutely is no more versatile task light around. The ability to move the light to exactly where it is needed without moving the whole lamp is wonderful. I use full spectrum 13w fluorescent bulbs with these to give me the best possible display of both color and detail. I have one place in my home where i clamp the light on and this really is the best way to use this light because you don’t have to worry about moving the ‘head’ and having the bottom of the swing arm move out of the weighted base (leaving you with a dangling ‘arm’ to manhandle back in to place). In the other two locations we use the weighted base and i really do wish there was a way to anchor the peg in to the base. This certainly is not a deal breaker and i fully intend to continue using these lamps. There is one design flaw that i have encountered with each and every lamp. The screw knobs that are used to tighten up the arm in the middle and top to hold a position eventually do strip out and that, unfortunately, would be the end of the lamp for me except my husband drills out the hole and puts on a bolt and acorn to tighten instead.

        Plan on replacing the cool white bulb with a lower color temperature bulb if you prefer warm lighting.

    • It was good while it lasted. Lamp lasted longer than i was expecting it too. Finally gave up the ghost not quite a year ago when the plastic piece that holds the screw for the head broke and left lamps flopping around on my desk. One recommendation i’d suggest make this piece out of metal so it doesn’t break.

    Affordable lighting for proper color temp room. I use this lamp at my work where i edit a lot of professional videos. For color correction, this is a pretty good light. It’s a bit on the bulky side but that does enable it to be pretty versatile in what direction it points. And it’s a bit difficult to tell from the picture but it can indeed stand on the table by itself which is nice.

        Good desk light, flexible, good price. This is a really good light for working at a desk. You can adjust it for where you need light or swing it out. A good price and fairly bright. Lights an area about three feet for reading.
