Review Content Works well and looks good It actually seems less stressful on my eyes! Just what I need I finally realized I need better light to work by with my eyes now past their prime. This light really works. great while it lasted Lamp was used intensely in a research environment. While it lasted, the lamp provided excellent lighting. However, after about 1 year, the lamp failed to work. I ordered a replacement bulb, but that didnt help. Now I have a bulky paper weight. Very disappointed that it didnt last longer. Sharp, professional looking desk lamp. Lamp looks great on my husbands desk. Produces great lighting aiding him in his work. Late night into daylight at my desk. At my home desk, I can sometimes grow weary as night time enfolds my work space. No so when I power on my Verilux desk lamp. Even working into late night, the Verilux light defies my senses, in a good way, and provides an indoor light that seems almost daylight. Bulb or something not working This was a Christmas gift for my husbands home desk. He loved the look & the lamp for the day that it stayed on. I ordered a new bulb, and I hope thats the problem. But beware, the bulbs are pricey. White light to read in the winter gray. Reading by a window in winter is difficult because of the gray skies and muted light. If your eyes are not as young as your spirit, this white light is just enough to make the reading easy, which a normal incandescent bulb does not do. Always quality I am a writer and book editor, so good lighting is critical for my work (sitting in my recliner). I also find that during winter months, the long dark days get to me, so the spectrum lighting is especially valuable to me. I always know I can count on Sharper Image for true quality. A light you can read with. The lamp is an attractive addition to my desk while providing the light necessary for me to do my work without the harsh glare of the overhead flourescent. Light my desk and look great Very useful but the counterweight takes up a bit of room Very nice desk lamp This would be a nice lamp for a desk or work space. It is just not bright enough on top of the piano to read my music. Natural Spectrum Desk Lamp Review I use it as a desk lamp over my lap-top. I had to replace a desk lamp previously sold by Sharper-Image that was heavier and did not have a counter-weight arm to keep the lamp from tipping over and waste space on the desk top. The previous version was a higher grade steel and lasted over 10 years. The lamp has a plastic shield over the light which seems to add a layer of protection for glare (perhaps it diffuses the light so that it is easier on the eyes). A good choice as a replacement to my old desk lamp. The lamp is perfect. On my desk, perfect when you dont want any overhead light. Best reading/task light My husband was always complaining about not having good enough light to read and do office work. I researched and read many reviews and decided this was the best. It have proven that I choose the right one! Too Large for end table This product was to large for the use intended.
