Not bright enough, and you can't adjust the angle of the light Feb 11, 2011
By J. Park
This is an extremely beautiful lamp. Even the box containing it had an elegant shape, and I was really excited to open it when I saw the slim figure of the lamp. However, two fundamental problems exist.
First, the light is not bright enough. This wouldn't be much of the trouble if you can better adjust the angle; however, as I will mention below, it does not fully cover the big textbook. Second, which relates to the first problem, is that you can't adjust the angle of the light. You can only vertically lift the neck from 0 degree angle to up; you can't twist it left or right. You might have the same urge as I did to breake it a bit to better light the book...
The switch to turn it on/off is another disappointment as well, as it feels fragile and cheaply made. I am probably going to keep this as I already have another lamp, but serioously consider the brightness issue plus its angle problem before you buy it.

Great Lamp Mar 16, 2011
By Andrew F.
As a college student, this is a great lamp especially if you have little desk space and poor lighting. The awesome feature about this lamp is that is can fold down when you are not using it and takes up a small corner of your desk. It seems people have been stressing the lamp brightness (or lack thereof) which made me hesitant in buying this at first, but there are no problems with brightness. I actually think anything brighter would hurt my eyes. It does get pretty warm when on for an extensive period of time, but I wouldn't really say it gets hot.
It's like a bonus. Just don't get this lamp exclusively for its night light feature. It helps when you're watching a movie on the computer and you still want to see the keyboard to chat or something.
Look and Feel:
The matte texture of the neck and stand is finely grained (for those of you who own a Playstation 2 or 3, it feels like that), and the head is a glossy black. A pretty minimalist and modern design--it looks very professional.
-The light is diffused uniformly unlike other LED lamps with a cone of light.
-Low-profile and detachable power cord. It resembles a phone charger.
-Decent price. Although it looks like the price went up a little since I bought it, if you're looking for a good quality LED lamp (especially on Amazon) for a good price, this might be your best bet. Lamps are expensive ):
-When opening and folding the lamp, it may be a little stiff.
-For some reason the power cord plugs into the top-back of the lamp. The cord can be tucked behind the neck.
-Which brings up another con: the back of the neck is open/hollow. This makes the lamp in the picture look nicer than it really is, but don't get me wrong, its a nice lamp and the plastic is thick.

My Review Sep 04, 2010
This is an elegant LED lamp with a beautifully curved neck that resembles a swan. I like that instead of using several high powered large LEDs like the Z-bar, they opted for clusters of smaller low powered LEDs that offers the same overall brightness. This allows the lamp to deliver a uniform light without bright spots, and run cooler thus less energy being wasted to heat, a true green product at heart!
They have also added several minute nuances such as the dimmer night light, ruff surface on the base to avoid unwanted light reflection into the eye, and Apple-esque finish on the lamp head which in my opinion, projects the product to a new level of completeness not often seen in an emerging product.
If you are going to own any green product, this would definitely be the one to own.

Love this lamp! Oct 07, 2010
By Dooney Bear
This is a terrific lamp! I like the modern look and its light is extremely focused for reading. That means I can sneak downstairs at night and read without disturbing my dogs who enjoy sleeping in the dark family room! I also like the way this lamp's head folds down for storage. The folding design makes it smaller and seems to help protect the light from damage.

Almost perfect Sep 24, 2010
It has a sleek looking and the light is easy on eyes while it is bright enough. It would be nicer if it had a swivel joint so I can adjust the angle of the light.
#UPDATE: July 22 2012
It stopped working after 1.5 years of use.
