Review Content Great for reading or knitting I have tried several "true white" lamps or lightbulbs for reading and needlework/knitting and have always been disappointed until I purchased this lamp. The color of the light is pure, the flexible neck on the lamp allows precise placement of the light beam and the easy adjustment of light intensity makes it perfect for my tasks. The lamp is tucked behind my favorite family room reading spot; the sleek design allows the lamp to practically disappear in my traditional home when not in use. I just purchased a second lamp for the reading chair in my home office! great service,came in fast,great looking ,easy to assemble a great reading lamp,with modern look. Light me the way! Replacement for an energy inefficient halogen floor lamp. Great for Reading at Night This floor lamp provides excellent light for night-time reading. It focuses on your book or newspaper without diffusing light all over the room. Its attractive, fits anywhere given its compact design, and is easy to assemble. I finally found my perfect reading lamp for night-time reading. Works great so I ordered a second one Great for knitting, crocheting or any hand sewing. Also works well next to sewing machine for concentrated light. Best light ever I bought this for my elderly mother whose eyesight is failing but who loves to read. She also has lots of mobility problems. I have bought 4 other reading lights for her, none of them satisfactory for her. The fact that you can focus the beam to be as wide or narrow as you want is an absolute godsend, since she also multitasks, watching TV at the same time. So the light can just go on her book. Also, it is so compact and the flexible neck means it doesnt get in her way -- she gets up and down all the time, and other lights had to be positioned so that she had to swing them away. I wish Id bought this wonderful light from the start! Husband likes it a lot! I bought this for myself but once my husband saw it I could tell he wanted one too! I like that it is discreet and very easy to assemble. Of course, the best part is the fact that you can zoom the focus in and out. I also like that the light that comes out reminds me of a cheery bright day! Fills our need We use it for added lighting in our living room. We have high ceilings and the ceiling lights do not provide enough light for reading. We did not want a table lamp or a regular floor lamp. We wanted something unobtrusive and this lamp filled the bill. Perfect! We needed a bright, focused light for doing puzzles. This lamp is perfect with options to use as either a flood light or spot light. Its slim design did not require us to rearrange the furniture to set it up! Perfect for small spaces Works perfect in a corner where there is not much room. Best light! Much better than a regular floor lamp, since it can easily be directed on a book, sewing, or anything else that needs extra light. Works perfectly! I bought this product so I could read in my bedroom reading chair at night and the light would not bother my sleeping wife. This light does exactly that. I really like the sliding feature that allows you to widen the area of light or decrease it. The lamp itself is very slim and unobtrusive, and the neck is adjustable. This is really a great lamp! Very well thought out and designed. Terrific Focused Beam Floor lamp Mostly use for reading. Makes it a lot easier on my older eyes. I like that the bulb is easier on energy. I can use my light in bed without it bothering my husband while hes lying in bed. I had one of the very expensive broad spectrum lamps with the much larger buld. I couldnt find the correct bulb and balast to replace the burned out one. What a waste! My best Christmas present this year! This lamp is easy to use and best thing you need to own if you are reader. Easy to transport from sofa to a chir wherever you want to read. I am surprise how easy it is to see my books even in the dark room. great lamp great for reading Sleek task lighting Illuminates the book, not the room. Good task lighting. Second time around..... This was the most eagerly anticipated item on my Christmas gift list, and my sister ordered it for me. I could hardly wait to get it home (as I grow older, I find that a bright reading light is the thing to have). When I returned home and opened up the box, I was dismayed to find that one of the four tubes that screw together to make up the stand, had been machined incorrectly and one threaded end was askew. I called Sharper Image and after 35 minutes on hold, the rep told me that she would call the manufacturer to see if any problems with the product had been encountered previously. She came back on the line to tell me she would email me a return shipping label with instructions on how to return the item. She also advised that once the lamp had been received, they would ship me out a replacement. (I naively expected that they would send me a replacement immediately!) Once I received the instructions, I was a little put off by the strict requirements imposed for return of an item. The lamp was all snugl Hooked! The best light for reading, doing paperwork....... weve ever bought. Using it disturbs no one else within vicinity, not to mention lessens eye strain one ends us with after using other lamps. If you are thinking about it, do yourself a favor. Just what Ive been looking for... My husband is a paraplegic and is in bed most of the time. We tried different lamps, etc. to give him enough lighting to read in bed. Because he is in a hospital bed, its hard to even clip a light somewhere on the frame. I saw this lamp and decided to give it a try as a Christmas gift -- he absolutely LOVES it! It is exactly what we were looking for and every time he reads, he comments how excellent the lighting is. I cant recommend this light enough -- thank you for carrying such an excellent product. Fabulous Lamp! Use lamp for reading. The best reading light I have ever seen!! Love love love This is the floor lamp I was looking for! I can easily move it around; its lightweight and yet it has a sturdy base, a flexible neck, and doesnt take up space. The adjustable daylight spot can be focused or opened to a large area, so its great for drawing, artwork and reading, and it looks great, but unobtrusive! Easy to use, and I might have to get another one for a different room because I carry it around to use wherever Im working. Great lamp Long periods of use and I dont feel the need for sunscreen! Just the right size Convenient height for reading. Easily fits in a tight place. Switch is at a convenient height. The light beam can easily be changed from partial flood to small precise light which is nice for close-up work. The adjustable swivel neck is a nice feature. Very attractive, sturdy light. I recommend For old eyes this is the best. FOCUSED brilliance I am always involved in close work that requires illunination..this FOCUSED LIGHT provides that bright, natural light without annoying and possibly dangerous HEAT...while I am always aware RE: the cautions listed when using this lamp,I find the degree of illumination and the length of time I am able to use the lamp just awesome for the cost...also extremely easy to put togather!!! Thank you, Lynn My wife loves it! My wife is a great knitter and she says the focused, non harsh light this gives off is perfect for her close work. This light is a jewel! I use this lamp to do handwork and reading in the great room. It provides light that is easy on my eyes without disturbing others. Whether it is sewing, drawing, reading or crafts, the natural Iight can be finely focused, and makes my hobbies all the more enjoyable. The design of the lamp is beautiful and takes up very little space in the room. Does what it says it will do! My wife thought the product would be great for her more intricate sewing needs and it has fit the bill perfectly. The light can be more focused than any other light we have around the house. Wanted this lamp for years! I was told that I must have gotten an old set of instructions for assembly, resulting in having to email for clarification. The focus light is GREAT! The light has provided a compact floor light to be used for reading. It does not distract from the decor and it can be adjusted for user. The price was very resonable excellent product at a good price over shoulder reading and focused light for detiled work. Small form factor with esdy adjustments. 50 % less than anything near compatible at lighting stores. May look to modern for some or those that dont like tje daylight white light effect versus yellow incsndescent. Especially good for aging eyes. excellent light excellent mobile lamp Love it! Husband says it is just what he wanted! Easy to put together, sleek, unobtrusive, easy to adjust the beam size. Great light that is minimal in appearance I can easily move this lamp to whatever room I need the extra light. Focused Beam Natural Light Floor Lamp Need extra lighting for my knitting and needlework….especially at night. This was the answer. gave me the extra focused light beam that I was looking for. hot light First one broke during assembly. Second one works OK, but the light is hot and uncomfortable. Great specific purpose light This light is just as described. A useful focused beam light that is great for reading or detailed hobby work. I bought this for my wife for her needle point. Yes it is very bright white, which takes a bit of getting use too. For those who write that they are disappointed in the light output for "room lighting"....read the description. Thats not what its for. Even when you spred the light circle to its 36-inch max, it will still only light within that circle, which is actually quite impressive. Because of this, it doesntd isturb other people. I love it! Great for reading I needed this for reading and the area I had to put in a lamp was very small. This was perfect. Very good Reading Best gift ever! After 49 years of giving gifts to my husband, I finally got something that he actually uses and loves! Its perfect for the tv room, right next to his recliner where he can see to operate the small remotes or increase the spotlight to eat by. Im thinking of buying one for next to the bed (for me)! Great lighting Unobstructive lighting, takes small amount of space with excellent lighting. Easy on the eyes, not bothersome to others. Great Light works great for reading or working with small items Best lamp ever! I bought this for my husband who complains that his other lamp makes him hot and he cant see things well. He simply loves this lamp! It gives him direct light on what he is looking at without being hot and now no more grumbling :). Love the focusing! I wanted a floor lamp that would not give off so much light that I couldnt read in my bedroom reading chair at night while my wife is trying to sleep. This lamp is exactly what I needed. It is very focused so that I dont have to light up the entire room, and it gives me the option to widen the focus if I need it. Perfect! Just the right amount of light I use it to read or work on laptop while my wife is watching TV. Light source does not interfere with brightness of TV viewing. Perfect Choice! Compact, sleek, unobstrusive I would buy again, good product Very good light, not bulky, pretty. Will use in our Bus, Motor Coach. Great Lamp This is a great floor - reading lamp. Bright light that can be adjusted from wide to pinpoint. My concern is about the bulb not being able to be replaced. The specs. read that it will last up to 50,000 hours, so the lamp will probably be out of date before the bulb goes bad " A book readers delight" Makes a great gift . Easy to assemble. Can move easy to different rooms when needed. " A book readers delight" . Very Impressed with this Beautiful Lamp! I use this lamp to illuminate the music when I am playing the piano. The room did not have adequate lighting, and this lamp completely solves the problem by focusing the light right where it is needed. It is easy to use, easy to move, and doesnt take a lot of room. It is also very attractive! Not well constructed I bought one for a friend and he seems to like it. I bought for myself and the switch broke after three days. It is still usable but very disappointed in the craftsmanship. Happy with purchase I ordered 2 lamps right away, thinking that I would like the product. And I am glad I did! elegant design, excellent focus and control, easy to put together. The only drawback was discovering that its impossible to replace the bulb! so hopefully it will last for years. In spite of that, I am still thinking about ordering another one as I am finding other places in the house where I could use this kind of light. Just what I was looking for I was looking for just this kind of light for reading - this provides great reading light without having to deal with big overhead room lighting. great product great product Excellent, non-heating lamp Fabulous light for my daily knitting activities. Very important that it does not heat up the space around it. It really is a ray of sunshine I am using a black keyboard with my laptop and the lamp shines on it to give me great visibility. It stands close by my desk and doesnt jut out or is in the way. Great purchase! Excellent product We use this light for reading in bed Great reading light ! Difficult to find a floor reading lamp that is compact, functional and stylish. This fills all my requirements for a terrific floor lamp. Just perfect, sleek and sophisticated This looks perfect next to my recliner in my condo. It is sleek and handsome and does not take away from some beautiful oil paintings, it is unobtrusive and gives such a great light. I use it for a reading light and love the fact I can taylor the focus. Superb! The Daylight24 was the perfect floor lamp for our bedroom. Will be used by my wife as a reading light. She can sit in a comfortable chair (easier on her back)and read without disturbing my sleep. I love this lamp! This is the perfect lamp to place beside a chair or couch. The ability to adjust the width of the (projected light) beam is a great feature. I especially like the flip (on-off) switch. The switch designs makes the lamp a perfect item for those who are unable to turn a traditional knob! Just what I was looking for Provides great lighting for reading late at night Practicle, utilitarian, and aesthetic product Easy adjustment with focused utilitarian beam to aid in reading in dark room. I have been looking for a reading light such as this one. ha Doubles as a spot light for my oil paintings Exactly what I wanted. Reason , jigsaw puzzles, needlework This is the ideal gift for someone who Ideal for someone who reads a lot in bed A Lamp to Read By Is excellent for reading, task lighting and conserves energy. Unobtrusive design makes it blend well with most home and office environments. Does the job! I needed a reading/task lamp and this seemed to have the versatility & design I needed. The only comment(4 stars)would be the bulb protrudes beyond the sleeve and can be quite bright, causing glare unless positioned just right. Luv the adjustable neck for this reason. Good to know the bulb is also not replaceable but lasts 50,000 hours! Thats about 17 years at 8 hours a day! :) Decent lamp Nice lamp, the light could be brighter and expand wider. perfect goes perfect with a modern house,I bought two. Wonderful Reading Light Recently had eye surgery and this was just the type of light I was looking for since Im an avid reader. Love the focus feature for when Im working on my needle crafts or snipping the pets nails. Good light, good night Used for reading, writing and arithmetic Focused Beam Natural Light Floor Lamp Ive been looking for quite a while for a lamp to work my jigsaw puzzles. I finally came across this lamp, and I love it! You can work the whole puzzle at once, or narrow the beam and work on a smaller section at a time. I would buy this product again. Its a gift for an artist. Its easy to use and move about the room. It can stand next to her easel or desk. The adjustment beam is so easy to use and spot light what it is you are working on. I would like to see the price a little lower, but I would still purchase this item without it being lower. Great Overhead Lighting My husband doesnt like the lamp light that reflects in the T.V. at night. I do a lot of paperwork while watching T.V. and when I saw this lamp I thought this would solve our problem. He was very please as was I. It provides bright, direct light, without a glare on the television. Efficient, Stylish & Quite Functional This very remarkable item is convenient, efficient and quite helpful whether your eyes are perfect or 60 years old. I have had torn and detached retinas in both eyes and this item is truly a technology gift from God. The color of the light is delightful on the eyes and more conducive to allow one to more easily read newspapers, books, magazines, prescription bottles, user manuals, do tedious work or even see crumbs on the carpet or the computer keyboard. I used to need a magnifying glass for reading fine print. Now I just flip the switch on this great investment and adjust the beam to how intense the brightness is that I need. The gooseneck allows for easy adjustment of the angle and height. It is virtually effortless to adjust the light for either room illumination, reading or other close up work. And the natural light, which reminds me of the white light of headlights in newer cars, illuminates our large living room quite well. The unit does not get hot, but do not take my word for it until y Perfect for personal reading Love it. Perfect at my loveseat. Wonderful reading lamp! I use this lamp for reading throughout the day while I work. I love its light weight, flexibility and natural light. Great reading light My wife uses this reading lamp at night so not to disturb me. So far, this is a super product. Good I need a focused light source because the lamp lit room is not enough to read. This lamp serves this purpose. Also easy to move from room to room and does not require much space. Perfect Needed a small standing lamp to use with my recyler. This is perfect and I like that it can be set to use a narrow beam or wide beam of light toward the chair. Terrific floor lamp This light is great for reading. It also can be pointed at ceiling for a diffused light. Its small proportions do not detract from its surroundings. Works well Works well on items such as books and newspapers easy to focus light directly to the reading material Perfect Lamp! Ive looked for a lamp for years to work on my jigsaw puzzles. Nothing was quite satisfactory until I got one of these lamps! I can light up the whole puzzle Im working on, or narrow the beam to do closeup work. I LOVE IT!!!!! Problem Great look & design, but too focused a beam & hard to see because too bright centrally. Beautiful, but not what I expected. Wanted to use for night time reading without disturbing my sleeping husband. With "shade" pulled down, the light beam is too bright and too narrow for comfortable reading. A dimmer switch is needed. Very bright floor lamp! Reading and crafting. Light dies Bought two lights. The one most used died in two months. Sent it back hoping it was anomaly. Started using second lamp and light died n less than two months. Light does not last anyway near 50000 hours. Complete ripoff. Same result twice is a pattern not a fluke. Great idea! Lots of light where you want it! Reading but not disturbing anyone else as light is easily adjusted. Very nice -works well works very good for reading light. It fits nicely behind couch with very little space. Fantastic Great Lamp, much more than what I expected. Sorry I hadnt purchased one sooner. Perfect....as well as good looking Reading or needlework it is excellent. I do love the adjustable beam. The on off switch is easy to operate as well as conveniently placed. The two tone finish is elegant in taste. I have no comments that arent great. Love It I love this lamp, and am ordering a second one. Perfect Floor Lamp I wanted a floor lamp that isnt an eye sore against my nice furnishings. This one is perfect, barely noticeable, heavy base, and it gives excellent bright light for reading, sewing, working on hobbies, etc. I give it the highest rating. Great Lamp The lamp is great for reading and providing natural light in a dark apartment during winter. Awesome lamp! I use this lamp every evening to read and play word games while my husband watches TV. The beam focuses only on what I am looking at and doesnt bother him. I plan to use it for knitting too. Wish we had bought this years ago! Bright Spot Light This product fits the bill very nicely for providing bright light to a small area. It meets its advertised description and is reasonably priced. I use it to provide light to sheet music placed on a keyboard where the room light is dim. It would clearly also be usable for providing light to the pages of a book, as shown in the advertising photo. First I bought one, then two more I need bright light for any close work or reading. This has been just what I was looking for. After seeing mine, a friend who is an artist ordered one for himself. beautiful lamp, excellent performance This beautiful reading lamp lets me keep the overhead lighting low, the fireplace on, while reading on a winters evening. The simple on/off switch, zoom focus for the cool LED lighting, and ample flexible arm offer complete functionality. A great addition to our reading/fireplace room! Perfect for reading Sleek design yet really supplies light to a specific location. Doesnt light up the whole room. Looks great in our living room. Modern sleek design is complimentary to my decor. Very high quality! Great addition to your reading chair. Easy to assemble and very sleek design. Wont be obtrusive in the room. Focused light makes for easy reading and doesnt bother others in the room. Nickel finish should fit with any décor. a very well thought out lamp. easy swit good product Great Lamp Ordered two of these so that now we have a reading lamp by each easy chair. Were easy to assemble and just what I had wanted. Highly recommend this product. Its a great lamp The lamp makes design on our wall that accents our wall art. Its gives out impressive light. Superior Reading Light By being able to focus the illumination over a broad range of space, one can illuminate only an open book, leaving the rest of the room in ambient light. excellent in both look-lighting and conv see example listed above perfect bedside light for reading!!! We use the lamp for reading in bed. The focus is such that it doesnt bother your spouse if he/she wishes to sleep. Good light and perfect fit between our bedside tables and the bed. Not very conspicuous. We also have decorative lamps on the bedside tables, but they were not bright enough. This filled the bill without detracting from the decorative lamps. Performs exactly as described This is a great reading light. The compact size does not interfere with room décor. I like how you can change from a narrow to wide beam of light. I was surprised that you could not replace the light, but according to the life of the bulb, it will probably out-live me. Better than I thought! My husband has limited vision, and this makes reading and doing puzzles soooo much easier. Sleek and bright My wife and I each have one. The assemble of the light is easy. The light spot to flood variance is excellent. The gooseneck adjustment means no glare for other person sitting next to you. We use dimmers a lot and wish this one had one. We find them much better than traditional reading floor lamps. Best Lamp for Knitting and Needlework This is a great lamp for fine detail work such as needlework or knitting. It is a compact, functional style that works fine with my living room decor. Ive been searching for just the right task lamp for a long while; Im so glad I found this one from Sharper Image! Natural Light Floor Lamp I am a knitter who always have at least one project going - usually several - and I feel that I have finally found a satisfactory light for this purpose. It was especially important to me that it would not create a hot environment. I have only had it for about one week; so far, I have not found anything negative about this lamp. Just love it. I find it to be brighter than any other light I have used, no matter the wattage. 2 Months and Gone. Bulb burnout. I loved these lights and bought two. I used one to read at night. After two months, the bulb on the most-used burned out -- and no, I did not leave it burning all day and night. Ill be visiting Sharper Image to complain. Wonder how long the second light will last. I had recommended these to friends, but no longer will. Solid flexible lamp It seems like a lot of money up front, but its so flexible, it can replace several other lamps. Its solid, so stays in place, but very easy to move. Great light quality. practical takes up so little room Let There Be Light This floor lamp is just the ticket for dark areas and areas that need bright light. It requires assembly, but the assembly is quick and easy. I got one to put next to a piano bench, where there is no place to put a piano light or a wall light. Liked it so much that I ordered two more, to set up next to a chair in the living area and next to my home office desk. It provides intense light. However, even at its widest setting, it projects light to only a small area. Still, whether it is reading a book, working on a craft project, etc., the area is more than adequate and the light is brilliant, bright and intense. Cool Floor Lamp Easy to put together. Very attractive and compact for living room use. Wonderful color light, easy to read with, and versatile. Only minor complaint we have is the gold color ring. We would have preferred it to be stainless like the rest of the lamp. We think it detracts from the elegance of the lamp. One large drawback We have returned two of these and hope that this 3rd one is the charm. The bulb which cannot be replaced lasted only 2-3 months on the first two. But we have persevered because it is exactly the size and shape we want for a floor reading lamp. Big light in a small package I use the light to knit in front of the tv. The focused beam doesnt disturb my husbands tv viewing or leave a glare on the tv screen. It is really easy to maneuver the pin point of light where you want it and the on/off switch is nicely located and easy to use. The light doesnt heat or burn my hands or the surrounding area like other task lights. The only things from me giving this 5 stars is that the plastic weighted base under the housing is uneven so the lamp doesnt sit flat on the floor. And, after a few minutes of use the focusing head heats up so that changing the focus needs an oven mitt. Focused Beam Natural Light Floor Lamp Finally found a simple, attractive floor lamp for reading at an affordable price. Great light but doesnt last Love the light but have had it less than a year and already the light went out. Cant replace LED so wish I had read the fine print. Cant afford a new one every year! Focused Beam Natural Light Floor Lamp My Husband uses it for reading. Love It Very inconspicuous. Light where you need it without filling up visual spaces in your room. Nice Lamp Lamp is up to Sharper Image standards. Not happy about having to pay shipping/handling, but hey, I wanted the lamp. It is very much everything as advertised. Didnt last even 7 months! Sad that a new bulb setup cant be purchased. It burnt out quickly and now throwing out the whole lamp seems to be an environmental waste Well Designed Light I thought about buying this light for awhile. Finally I decided to buy it for my husband as a Christmas gift. He was having trouble reading with our regular lamps. This light, with its easy adjustments has worked wonders for him. He can now read without having to hold the paper closer to the lamp. We are both very happy with it and are thinking about buying another for my parents. A floor lamp that delivers This is an especially good lamp for reading. It allows a user to easily adjust the beam diameter from a tight focus to several feet across. Definitely a good purchase. Stylish yet Functional There is nothing better to use than this light for for reading. Lessens the strain on the eyes and directs the light just on on page. Love that the beam is adjustable. I can see where this light would be great for artists as well, since this is the type of light that shows true colors. A great task lamp for arts and crafts I have had my eye on this lamp for a long time. I finally got one, and I am satisfied with it. It provides extra light where I need it. The best floor lamp I ever have. I place the head lamp on the side end of the lounge and it fits very well. It also add like a décor and people notice it. So Good I had to get another This is the second Focused Beam lamp I have purchased. The first was for my mother to have beside her chair. It makes reading and doing handwork so much easier having the proper light. I purchased one for beside my chair because I found that having directed light was less invasive to others in the room; especially those watching TV. Focused beam works great Use at night to read.kind of pricey but made very well, worth trying again Unfortunately, the lamp that we initially received was defective. The first piece of the stem had a flaw in the threading so that it could not thread into the next piece of the stem. We easily sent it back to Sharper Image. We did take a good look at what the lamp before we boxed it back up to return it and really liked what we saw. It had a very heavy base so that its not going to tip over. Easy and convenient on/off switch. And the light gave pinpoint to large illumination as promised. So we are ordering another with the realization that sometimes defects just happen. We think well be pleased next time. I would buy this product again. This is a great lamp and the controls are simple and easy to use. This lamp allows you to zoom in the light with one simple move, which is great for any project requiring extra brightness. The lamp takes up minimum space and I am very pleased with it. Terrific lamp. Great size and intensity my husband is thrilled with the amount of light generated by this attractive and very compact floor lamp. Tired of holding flashlight Im getting older and the lamp next to my chair wasnt doing it for nighttime reading. I had the brightest bulb it would hold. Sometimes I had to pick up a little flashlight for smaller print. I love this light. Perfect Perfect for old eyes that need more concentrated light So far so good - the second time around. I use it for knitting in the evenings. I hope the first one was just a "lemon", and look forward to being able to enjoy this one for a really long time as the light is superior to anything else I have had. I recommend this light. Its Great! This is a great reading lihgt or any time you need a good focused light! I love this lamp. I love this lamp. The light is very bright but can be focused so it doesnt shine all over the room. Great for doing crafts. Great Lamp! I needed a good light to knit by. This light is wonderful! I couldnt ask for anything more. I L O V E that I can decide where and how much light to focus. I would recommend your product to anyone who is looking for a good task light. Focused Beam Light surpasses claims Easy to use/maneuver , clear, cool light. Light beam is expandable from almost pinpoint lighting to full table/couch coverage Love this lamp. I love this lamp. It is very bright and I like that you can adjust it. I just bought 2 more. Use for more than reading I use this, not only for reading, but sorting pills, doing nails, writing cards and so many things. Anything that needs attention to detail. As a senior citizen with, slightly declining eyesight, this has been so great!! I dont know how I got along without it. Loved it so much I bought a second one My wife needed a light for her cross stitch work, weve tried all kinds and none were satisfying until I tried the Focus Beam Natural Light. We were so impressed I bought a second one. Fantastic Lamp I bought this powerful lamp for reading. The small light is perfect for reading or other activities. I like the minimum adjustments required to position the lamps light in the area of focus. Im so happy I bought it! Love this lamp I use this lamp all the time. It is beside my chair and I like the way the light beam can be adjusted. Great for reading or doing crafts. Very bright floor lamp Easy to move around. Love it This lamp was easy to assemble and we began using it right away to illuminate a board game. It is easy to move from place to place. We first tried to change the width of the beam by turning the gold band...be advised that it is easier than that! Just pull it out and in. It is as pictured and just what I hoped for. Thank you Best reading lamp I have ever purchased! Perfect for my night time reading! The perfect reading or project light. Great for reading and project use, the light is adjustable for small detailed use or increases for a 30" area. Wonderful reading light for the bed I found that my bedside lamp did not throw light exactly where I needed it, so use this floor lamp behind the headboard. I can focus the light right on my night time reading, and the switch is near the top (not on the floor like some models) so I can turn it off without getting up. I tried a clip on model once, but it was messing up the wood of the bed. Very happy with this lamp. However, I think it is very strange that the bulb cannot be replaced in a lamp of this price. I am against this kind of "disposable culture," but bought the lamp anyway. I hope in future models this can be remedied. PERFECT LIGHTING Unobtrusive lighting, easy on the eyes, no glare. Compact design allows for ease of use without being in the way. Perfect light This is great for knitting or weaving. The light is adjustable in area so one can focus on small area or large. It will be used for knitting while watching TV without disturbing my partner! I can focus on a small area for good light on any weaving project. It is just what I wanted! Time Will Tell Bought before Christmas, quit working around Valentines Day. Pretty sure it was the LED, as it dimmed for about 10 seconds, then stop functioning. Since I purchased during December, was able to get holiday replacement. The return process with Sharper Image could not have been better, it was truly flawless. Did everything online, didnt have to talk to a human, received replacement in less than a week! Never noticed that there is absolutely no warranty than I can see with this product, so now Im on my own. Hope it keeps working because it is an outstanding light. Focused beam light Was not aware there is no bulb replacement. When the bulb is done so is the light.
