Review 4*

I received a free sample of this product in return for an honest review.

This is a very handy desk lamp. I really like it!

I review books more than I review electronic goods, but when I was approached about reviewing this lamp I decided to give it a try, as I have been looking for a desk lamp for a while. However, I have never found one that I liked the look of. But, when I saw a picture of this lamp, I was immediately drawn to it's looks and versatility. I was sent a white version to try.

I opened the box and was impressed with how it was folded in on itself. It collapses in on itself to lie almost completely flat. This makes it easier to store away when not in use. This flexibility is produced by several hinges, which allows the user to position the lamp in several configurations and positions to get the most out of the LED light coming from the unit. The LED lamp head itself can be tilted into various positions - from the usual downward facing lamp to an upwards facing one to make an up-lighter, and can be twisted from portrait to landscape, depending on how you like it or what you are working on. I also liked the touch facility of the buttons on the base and are integrated to lie flat within the casing. These buttons have several different uses too. There is the typical on/off switch, two brightness control buttons - one to brighten the lamp and the other to dim the light. There is also two temperature control buttons - one to give a brighter white light for when you need a bit more light and the other changes to a more yellow or dimmer light when required. This option is great if you need a more natural light to work with that doesn't hurt the eyes. I am not fond of the dimmer/yellow light myself, as I like a bright light to read with. However, other users may prefer the less harsh brightness when reading/working. There is also a button for a nightlight function. This is a blue light that gives a gentle glow that brighten's the dark enough to see clearly. This is great if you either have kids, or have to answer nature's call in the middle of the night without disturbing your significant other with a blinding white light.
One thing I haven't used yet on the light is the USB port on the side, which comes in handy if you need to charge your phone or tablet. But, that doesn't mean I won't. I just haven't had need of it as yet.

All in all, I have enjoyed testing the lamp and it's various configurations. I am glad I accepted to review this product. I am not sure if this lamp would appeal to those who like the traditional looking desk lamps, but I think that if I had seen this in a shop I would have definitely bought one for myself. Only time will tell how long the LED lights will burn for before it dies but, I hope that once it does, these lamps will still be available to purchase!

I recommend this desk lamp if you are looking for a stylish and versatile light that will fit comfortably in not only an office, but on a table in the lounge or bedroom. - Lynn Worton
